Athlete of the Week

The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News, and Coast Radio Sports congratulate freshman Viking softball player Bailey Overton as this week’s Athlete of the Week.  Bailey was 4-6 from the plate with 7 RBI’s, two singles, a triple and a double with two stolen bases in Siuslaw’s double header wins against Cottage Grove on Friday.  She also had two walks and was hit by a pitch.  Coach Sean O’Mara said Overton’s defensive play was also instrumental in the dual wins.
