The Hawks took down the Eugene Emeralds last night in Boise to open a three game series. Emeralds starter Eury Ramos gave up seven hits and seven runs in three innings of work to the Hawks who peppered the Em’s with 12 hits and 12 runs giving Eugene, who could only rack up two runs, a 10 run road rash. The two teams play again tonight with Fastino Carrera on the mound for Eugene against Boise’s Pearson McMahan.
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.
