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.
