A couple of early hits put the Eugene Emeralds out in front last night against the Salem-Kaiser Volcanoes. The Ems took a 2 nothing lead through 7 innings when Volcanoes 3rd baseman David Villar hit a two run homer to tie the game. The ems got back in front after a couple singles in the bottom of the 7th when Fernando Kelli hit a single into left field scoring second baseman Luis Diaz. Final score 3-2 Ems. The Ems are on the Road to Vancouver this evening for a first pitch at 7:05.
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.
