Our girls basketball season has come to end, but it was a great ride.
After suffering losses to North Douglas and Elkton our girls were  eliminated from the 2015 OSAA State Championships at Baker City. Buggy  Hiddleston was named the player of the game in each contest. We had a  great time and our girls represented all of you well with great effort  and sportsmanship. When you see them, please thank them for their fine  representation of our community.

Our girls Basketball team is headed back to Baker City for the third  time in four years for the OSAA State Championships this week! Thanks to  our great fans who packed the gym on Saturday night. Our girls defeated  Trinity Lutheran 45-33. We had previously lost twice to the Saints this  year. Your support played a huge role in the victory. Thanks again for  coming.

Last week our boys basketball season ended with a loss to Alsea. They finished 8-17 overall with a 6th place finish in the MWL. Please congratulate the boys as well as Coach Scrivner on a job well done of representing our school with honor. During the MWL championships three of our boys were recognized on the all-league team. Blue Bloomer received honorable mention while Alex Nastasiuk and Eric Huffman were selected to the 3rd team.

Hey everyone,
Last week our boys defeated Mohawk before falling to league leading Siletz Valley.
Our girls beat Siletz Valley on Friday night to claim the Mountain West League Regular Season championship with two games remaining.
This week we host Alsea for senior night. Please note that the boys will be playing the early time slot at 5:30pm. This will be our seniors last regular season home game. Please come out and show your support for all of their hard work over the years.
Have a great week!
GO EAGLES!

Last week our boys basketball team took down Eddyville before falling short against Lowell. Our girls suffered two set backs this week, against Lowell and Trinity Lutheran. The boys look to to bounce back against Mohawk on Tuesday before traveling to #4 ranked Siletz.

The girls are idle this week until Friday when they also take on a tough Siletz team. The girls remain atop the MWL standings at 4-1.
*Note* The start times for the Siletz game may be changed due to a work conflict with one of our coaches. I'll keep you posted to any changes.
GO EAGLES!

McKenzie Sports Schedule This Week

Last week in McKenzie sports our girls basketball team had a busy week  traveling to two top ten teams in Crane and Damascus Christian. Despite  great efforts they came up short of victory. They did however defeat Triangle Lake on Tuesday to stay atop the Mountain West League. The boys  took on Triangle Lake and Mapleton. Again their valiant efforts bore no  fruit. They currently sit at 5th place in the MWL.
