Athlete of the Week!
Siuslaw Viking senior Emma Collins is this week’s Athlete of the Week! In her final league matches last week Emma had 22 setting assists, combined for 9 kills, 4 service aces, and 2 digs.
Honorable mention goes to Viking senior Maci Wells with 13 digs against North Bend and 14 against South Umpqua. Coach Jonathan Hornung says Maci’s play helped anchor the back line in last week’s league and tournament play.
Siuslaw to Appeal Ruling
According to an upcoming report in the Siuslaw News, Siuslaw High School is planning on appealing the OSAA’s decision to leave Siuslaw at the 4A level in sports. Siuslaw Athletic Director Chris Johnson says the school met three of the four criteria for moving down and the fourth was winning percentage which he noted was increased only because of the 2A and 3A teams they had defeated. The move to the Sky-Em league will cut down some long distance matches, but the schools they will be facing are all larger with the exception of Elmira.
