McKenzie River Reflections

Hey everyone,  It was a great week for McKenzie Volleyball last week. The Eagles took  down league opponents Mohawk and Siletz and then won a couple of  exciting non-league matches on Saturday vs. Triad and Monroe. They look  to continue their strong start to the season by hosting Alsea on Tuesday  and traveling to T-Lake for a showdown against a top league opponent.

The football team got off to a strong start Friday night before  faltering in the second half. They look to right the ship this week when  they travel to Mapleton.

They were there to watch something that had never been done before, anywhere, and it was about to happen right before their eyes

Hey everyone, last week our volleyball team finished the first week of their league season at 1-1 after defeating Eddyville and dropping a match to Lowell.  They also competed at the Oakridge Volleyball Tournament on Saturday.  The football team got off to a quick start on Friday but saw the lead slip away in the second quarter.
