The Vancouver Canadians took an early five-run lead, but the Eugene Emeralds battled back to cut the deficit to one run in the bottom of the ninth inning last night at PK Park. But that rally was cut short for Eugene, ending in a 5-4 loss. The loss also ended the season for the Emeralds who fell short in their quest to win the West Division of the Northwest League.
Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News and Coast Radio Sports congratulate Brea Blankenship as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Brea’s personal record best of 19:41 flat in the 5000 meter run in the Warner Pacific XC Classic helped propel the Viking Ladies to a first place finish this past weekend trimming 27 seconds from her previous start and 25.5 seconds from her previous personal best.
Honorable Mention goes to Mia Collins who had 10 kills, 9 digs and a block last week’s win against Elmira.
