Local Sports – Volleyball Results and Athlete of the Week

Taking a look at Coast Radio Sports…

The Marshfield Pirates nearly shut out the Vikings on the Volleyball Court last night in Florence; sweeping Siuslaw in three games 25-9; 25-10; 25-23.

On the court tonight the Mapleton Sailors will be in Alsea; Reedsport at Creswell.

Siuslaw Cross Country standout Mitchell Butler is Coast Radio Sports’ Athlete of the Week.  The Viking junior ran in the prestigious New Balance Festival of Champions in Oregon City finishing 6th in the top flight of competition with a time of 16:26.  That came on the heels of a fifth place overall finish last week at the North Bend Invitational.

Honorable Mention is given to Viking linebacker Kody Stonelake who made several key defensive plays and, on the offensive line, helped Siuslaw ball carriers to 183 yards rushing in the Viks 24-7 win over Elmira.
