This week we only have one contest as the Middle School girls travel to  Alsea in an attempt to remain undefeated on the season. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving week full of friends,  family, food and of course football. In the spirit of the season, I  would like to give thanks to a wonderful staff that continues to support  our student athletes and coaches. The Eagles soar because of all that you do!
GO EAGLES!

There are no Varsity contests scheduled for this week.

The end of a fantastic fall athletic season has come to a close. Our
football team ended their season with a convincing win at Alsea to
finish the season at 2-7. Thank you all for the support.
On Saturday our middle school volleyball team won the MWL middle school
tournament by defeating Alsea in 3 exciting sets.
Also on Saturday our High School volleyball team made the long trek to
Dufur to take on the Rangers for a 2nd round OSAA state playoff match.
It was an exciting match, but in the end Dufur came out victorious.

Our volleyball team took down Mapleton on Saturday at the Mountain West
League Championships to earn the 3rd seed to the OSAA state playoffs. On
Wednesday they will play Willamette Valley Christian with a tentative
start time of 6:30pm. The game will be played at Blanchet Catholic High
School. As details arise, I'll pass them onto you ASAP. It is only a
quick jaunt up I-5. It would be great to have the support of our awesome
fans.

Our girls volleyball finished the regular season in second place and will enter the MWL tournament at Junction City High School as the #2

The football team stayed with the Mohawk Indians through the 3rd quarter before the Indians pulled away with the win.
I hope you all can make it out to Junction City this weekend to cheer on our girls as they fight for a State Playoff berth.

Last week our volleyball girls took down Siletz Valley and Alsea to
remain in second place in the Mountain West League. This week is the
last two games of the regular season for our volleyball girls as they
host Triangle Lake on Tuesday for senior night. Please come out and
support our girls in their last regular season home game. It is sure to
be exciting. Our football team got off the snide by taking down Alsea
for the first win of the season. Thank you to those of you who made it
out for senior night.

Last week our girls volleyball put up a great fight against top league
opponent Lowell but fell in four sets. They rebounded nicely to take
down Mohawk and Condon/Wheeler later in the week. This week they look to
continue their hold on second place in league while they play host to
Siletz Valley before traveling to Alsea. The football team put up
another great effort but fell short against Yoncalla on homecoming
night. This week is senior night for our boys. Please come out and

Last week our HS volleyball team took down Mapleton and Eddyville in
League play. On Saturday we hosted the 3rd Annual RPI Invitational that

host the top team in the league, Lowell before traveling to Mohawk and
Dufur later in the week.
Our football team will host Yoncalla on Friday night for homecoming.
