McKenzie River

Last week our boys basketball team took down Eddyville before falling short against Lowell. Our girls suffered two set backs this week, against Lowell and Trinity Lutheran. The boys look to to bounce back against Mohawk on Tuesday before traveling to #4 ranked Siletz.

The girls are idle this week until Friday when they also take on a tough Siletz team. The girls remain atop the MWL standings at 4-1.
*Note* The start times for the Siletz game may be changed due to a work conflict with one of our coaches. I'll keep you posted to any changes.
GO EAGLES!

Leaburg DamLEABURG: Problem's continued today at the Eugene Water & Electric Board's Leaburg Dam.
Due to the breakdown of a crane on the structure, the road across the Leaburg Dam is closed. EWEB personnel were driving pilot vehicles to escort passenger cars and trucks through the private logging roads accessed by Goodpasture Road starting at approximately 4:30 p.m. today.
According to McKenzie Fire & Rescue, flaggers on the Highway 126 side of the dam will direct vehicles to a location on Goodpasture Road. The pilot vehicles will then escort passenger vehicles on the private roads to the Leaburg Dam.

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.

Leaburg DamLEABURG: $3 million in successful repair work at Leaburg Dam was completed this week. Following more testing, the Eugene Water & Electric Board plans to refill the lake behind the dam soon. One of the structure’s three circular roll gates broke in 2012. A second failed last month.
