Athlete of the Week

Mapleton volleyball standout Dani Simington is Coast Radio Sports’ Athlete of the Week.  The senior hitter had 20 kills and five blocks last week in a five-set victory over Mountain West League rival Triangle Lake.  Honorable Mention is given to Viking reserve running back Maverick Michael who carried the ball twice in last week’s Siuslaw victory over Marshfield… both times for touchdowns.
