Siuslaw’s Campbell Claims Woahink Title
Seth Campbell outpaced the rest of the pack by 28 seconds Saturday afternoon to claim the individual title at the Woahink Invitational Cross Country Meet. The Viking senior turned in a time of 16:54, leading the Siuslaw boys to a second place team finish behind Reynolds High School of Portland.
Reynolds won the team title for the girls, also followed by Siuslaw in second place. Sailor Hutton of Bandon won the individual title in 19:49 followed by Celie Mans of Siuslaw.
On the prep gridiron Friday night…
The South Umpqua Lancers used their size on both sides of the ball to control the line of scrimmage and grind out a 27-21 Far West League win over the Siuslaw Vikings. In other Far West games, North Bend demolished Douglas 56-6; The Marshfield Pirates plundered Brookings-Harbor 39-7.
In the Mountain West League the Mapleton Sailors fell to the #1 ranked Falls City Mountaineers 74-42. Chris Free had 20 catches for 306 yards for the Sailors. That was the second highest number of catches ever for a receiver in an 8-man game nationwide. He shares that distinction with former Sailor Tyler Krueger who caught 20 passes on one game two years ago. Free also had five touchdowns, an onside kick recovery and a fumble recovery.
On the Volleyball court
Siuslaw fell to Hidden Valley in non-league action in Cottage Grove. The Mustangs swept the Vikings in three games. In the second match of the day, the Vikings tamed the Cottage Grove Lions in five games. Siuslaw won the first two games and nearly came back in game four, losing it 25-27, before coming out on top 15-8 in the final set. Elyssa Rose had 20 kills and one stuff block; Hannah Bartlett 48 assists, four perfect serve-receive passes and placed 100-percent of her serves in play.
On the College Gridiron
#2 Oregon had Saturday off, and the Oregon State Beavers left Los Angeles wishing they could have done the same. The USC Trojans handed the Beavers a 35-10 spanking at the LA Coliseum. The Beavers only touchdown on the night came on a Ryan Murphey 97-yard kickoff return in the first quarter.
