Because of the four-day weekend that lies ahead, I wanted to get some info out about the next couple of weeks for our high school basketball.
Some of this is tentative, but it'll give you an idea of what to expect.
Boys:
Monday 2/16: Vs. Alsea 7pm
Wednesday 2/18 @ Mapleton 7pm(if we defeat Alsea)
Saturday 2/21 @ Northwest Christian University (if we defeat Mapleton)
2/23-2/28 Rounds 1 and 2 of OSAA State Championships (if victorious at NCU)
3/3-3/7 State Championships in Baker City (if we get through rounds 1 and 2)

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.

Last week our High School boys team was defeated by Lowell only to rebound with a victory vs. Mohawk on Friday. Our girls defeated Lowell and look to be the team to beat in the Mountain West League. We host Siletz Valley on Tuesday before traveling to Alsea on Friday. Our girls will then travel to Country Christian on Saturday to take on the #2 ranked Cougars.

Happy New Year,

I'm sure you all are rested and ready to tackle the new year! I know I  am.
Our athletes didn't have quite the rest we did as they were busy  representing our Eagles around the state. The boys competed in 5  contests over the break culminating in a 5th place finish at the 1A  Hoops Classic in Portland. Our girls were a little bit busier with 6  games during the break. They came away with a 4th place finish at the  Hoops Classic. Buggy Hiddleston was named to the all tournament team for  her efforts in Portland.

McKenzie Varsity Sports Schedule This Week

There are no scheduled contests this week for either the McKenzie Boys or Girls Varsity Basketball teams.

Warriors Wrap-up Eagles in Winter Tournament

Our boys and girls girls basketball were busy last week. They both took on Falls City and came away victorious. Our boys then traveled to Eddyville and picked up their first league win of the season. Both teams then traveled to Condon/Wheeler for a tournament where they each suffered two setbacks while giving a valiant effort. Another busy week awaits as our boys host Mapleton on Tuesday before the boys and girls travel to the North Douglas Tournament. During the winter break they'll travel to Portland for three days to take part in the 1A Hoops Classic.

Last week was the start of our high school basketball season, and it was a busy week. Our boys finished the week 1-2 with a win over Trinity Lutheran. Our girls went 2-1 and captured the tournament title at Yoncalla with wins over Yoncalla and Lowell. Buggy Hiddleston and Katey Totten were selected to the All-tournament team.
This will be another busy week with our boys playing 4 games and our girls with 3. We host Falls City on Tuesday for an OSAA Endowment game. (League Passes will not be accepted for this contest.)
Thanks for your continued support of our eagles.
