The Lady Vikings couldn’t make it all the way to North Valley High School in Grants Pass on Friday. They faced Klamath Union at South Umpqua in Myrtle Creek Friday where the Pelicans came out on top 39-35.  Siuslaw fell to Brookings-Harbor 51-29 Saturday afternoon.

Next up for the Vikings, the Junction City Tigers tomorrow.   The girls play in Florence, the boys in JC… both games tip off at seven.

Mapleton was scheduled to face Crow Saturday afternoon… that game was called because of the weather.  It’ll be made up later this month.
