The Oregon State Beavers will host the Corvallis Regionals of the NCAA Baseball Tournament. The Regional announcements were made Monday morning. After finding out on Sunday that Oregon State made the cut to host a regional for the third year in a row, many Beaver fans were just curious as to what teams would be making the trek to Corvallis for the tourney’s first weekend. The Corvallis regional will consist of Oregon State, Michigan, Cincinnati, and Creighton. The winner of the Corvallis regional will play the winner of the UCLA regional in the Super Regional round. The Beavs earned an overall seed of 16 in this year’s field. On Friday, Oregon State will take on Cincinnati in a game that will air on KCFM beginning with a 6:30 pregame and a first pitch at 7 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.
