The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News and Coast Radio Sports congratulate senior Siuslaw quarterback Elijah Blankenship as this week’s Athlete of the Week.

Honorable mention goes to sophomore Viking Volleyball player Desi Tupua. Desi had 27 kills, 12 serving aces and 8 blocks in two matches and had an 11-0 serving run against Elmira.
Beavers End Run
The Oregon State Beavers rebounded from a 17 point deficit to tie the Houston Cougars with 3:21 left in the game, but Houston mounted an attack to hold off the charging Beavers. The Beavers only scored 17 points in the first half but outscored the Cougars in the second, but were not able to advance to the Final Four. It would have been the Beavers first final four appearance since 1963. Final score Houston 67, Beavers 61.
