We have been back to school for about one month, but our athletic programs at the high school and middle school have been up and running since the middle of August. We are getting right down to the wire in all of our fall sports. Football has three league games left including homecoming set for Oct 19 against Neah-Kah-Nie. We have 4 middle school games left. The MS has an identical record as the HS. Both the middle school and the high school are trying to improve on their one win seasons and if they finish out the seaon with wins they can bring their record to 500. That is a real pssibility with the teams they are facing toward the end of this year.
Cross Country is going strong under the direction of new head coach John Roady. MS and HS have some outstanding individuals and there are peak performances in both boys and girls. The league championships will be Oct 11th at Blue Lake Park in the Troutdale area.
Volleyball continues to turn in strong performances both MS and HS are doing well. The HS is ranked in the top ten in the state and is trying hard to make the state play-offs. MS is undefeated so far on the year but only has one team as opposed to previous years when we have had two. The JV squad at the HS is also hurt by a low turnout and lack of players hurts their overall win loss record. They are getting lots of playing time however and alot of experience for the upcomming years.
