Siuslaw Track and Field standout Mikaela Siegel is Coast Radio Sports’ Athlete of the Week.

She also finished third in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 15.84 seconds.
Honorable Mention is given to Kaylee Graham, the Viking freshman ran her best time ever in the Frosh-Soph division of the 300-meter hurdles at Grants Pass with a time of 51.79 seconds. She was fourth in the 100 meter hurdles and was also thrust unexpectedly into the four-by-100 and four-by-400 relays, helping the latter to a third place finish.
