In Palo Alto, California Oregon will take on the Stanford Cardinal at 6 o’clock at Klien Field’s Sunken Diamond. In Salt Lake City Oregon State takes on the Utah Utes at 5 o’clock.

Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News, and Coast Radio Sports congratulate sophomore soccer standout Jason Garcia as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Jason scored a goal and had 2 assists in Saturday’s standoff against Waldport. Coach Londi Tomaro said Jason’s work in the midfield to win and maintain possession of the ball helped to keep Waldport at bay and kept the game close. His efforts have been instrumental in Siuslaw’s 6-0-1 season.
Honorable mention goes to senior cross country runner Hannah Rannow who exhibited strength and stamina in her strong second place finish at the Paul Mariman Invitational on Saturday.
