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

Ranald McDonaldBy Finn J.D. John
