Local Sports – Cross Country and prep football

Let’s start with Cross Country… Saturday in Philomath the Viking Boys placed five runners in the top 11 at the Paul Mariman Invitational, easily claiming the team title.  Mitchell Butler posted a personal best time of 15:38.46 on a very swift course to win the individual title.  Katy Potter was second in the girls race and the Lady Vikings brought home fourth place.

On the gridiron Friday night… It was pretty much over early in the second quarter with the Vikings holding a 28 point lead.   Siuslaw cruised to a 42-13 Far West League victory over the Douglas Trojans.  Sutherlin also put up 42 points… to South Umpqua’s six; and North Bend had a 48-19 romp over the Brookings-Harbor Bruins.  In non-league action the Reedsport Braves fell 56-nothing to the Bandon-Pacific Tigers; and in the Mountain West, Lowell downed Mapleton 66-12.
