Back to Training Next Week: Vikings
Area prep athletes will begin pre-season workouts for fall sports next week. Siuslaw Athletic Director Chris Johnson says the OSAA prohibits contact between coaches and athletes this week. But, beginning Monday August 1st teams can begin their workouts for the fall season. Cross Country, Volleyball, Soccer and Football workouts for the Siuslaw Vikings all begin then. The workouts are for strength and conditioning. Formal practices begin Monday the 15th.
Ems Over Hops
A sacrifice fly and a couple of two-run homers accounted for all of the Ems runs last night in the bottom of the third inning. They kept the visiting Hillsboro hops at bay until the 7th inning. The Hops managed a pair of two-run homers themselves one in the 7th and another in the 8th to come within one run, but the Ems shut them down in the 9th to take the victory 5-4. The Ems have made up two games on the league leading Vancouver Indians and now sit just a half game out of the lead.
