The lack of surety surrounding the rest of the school year, will likely mean that spring sports will at the very least have a shortened season. OSAA announced that it will move back the suspension of meets in alignment with the governor’s executive order and plans to continue with the spring sporting schedule sometime around April 29th. OSAA Executive Director Peter Weber says they will have a clearer picture, hopefully, by April 15th.
Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News and Coast Radio Sports congraulate Elijah LaCosse as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Elijah finished the State Wrestling Championship in third place. After losing in the first round he went on to score 5 consecutive pins including a rematch against his first round opponent. He was one of only two wrestlers in the tournament to do that and scored 23 points in the 138 pound weight bracket.
Honorable mention goes to another Viking Wrestler, Hayden Muller who placed 4th in the 135 pound girls division.
