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.

The Eugene Water & Electric Board’s expedited work plan at Leaburg Dam includes bringing the No. 2 roll gate back into operation. Crews began removing the top three rows of the wooden bulkhead today, January 9th.

Fish truck wreckOn January 7, Oregon State Police troopers cited Ray C. Lewis, 45, of Umpqua Oregon, for the crimes of DUII-alcohol, and Reckless Driving into Lane County Circuit Court. At approximately 2:50 p.m. on December 30th, a westbound Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) fish delivery tanker driving on highway 126E was loaded with 11,000 Chinook salmon smolts and water and headed to the Row River near Cottage Grove where they were to be released. The fish were being transferred as a result of low water concerns at McKenzie Hatchery caused by floodgate malfunctions at Leaburg Dam, which provides water to the hatchery.

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.

Leaburg rocksJessica and David Saydack, who live a mile or so above the Leaburg dam, set out to clean up some of the recreational debris that the low water levels exposed. They found these unexpected treasures - various agates and rocks collected today from the river bank in their front yard.
