Eagle Volleyball Drops A Match Each To Warriors And Lakers

The McKenzie Varsity Volleyball team dropped a pair of Mt. West League matches this past week. The Eagles slipped to a 1-3 MWL record and 1-4 overall.

The Siletz Valley Warriors rode into town on Tuesday, September 12, and defeated their Eagle hosts, 3-0. It ‘twernt’ easy however, as both teams, young and inexperienced alike, kept the three sets interesting and close throughout the match. Siletz Valley won the first set 25-23, the second set 25-22, and capped the evening with a win in the deciding set, 25-15.

On Thursday McKenzie traveled to Triangle Lake to mix it up with the Lakers. Triangle Lake wasn’t in the mood evidently to make a long evening, easily downing McKenzie 25-13, 25-17, and 25-12.

Myra Dion Finishes In Top Ten At Oakland

Eagle sophomore Myra Dion finished seventh in the Acorn Gully Chase held at Oakland High School last Wednesday, September 13.

The winning time came courtesy of Oakland junior Callie Sarnoski, who finished in 12:38.0 min.

McKenzie sophomore Will Meister finished his Boys Varsity 3,000 meters race in a time of 13:17.4 min. and that was a thirteenth place finish. Teammate, junior Devon Lawson ran the distance in 17:00.9 min., which placed him twenty-seventh. Reedsport junior Clayton Wilson took top honors in the race with a time of 10:10.8 min.

Eagle Six-Man Grid Iron Falls To Eddyville, 45-7

The McKenzie Varsity Six-Man Football team finally got a chance to see action this season, hosting Eddyville Charter last Friday night at Wade Thomas Field. The Eagles had to forfeit their first two scheduled contests due to insufficient player numbers, those forfeits going to Alsea on the September 1 and Crow/City First Christian Academy on September 8.

Eddyville Charter rolled into Finn Rock and a beautiful Fall day on the McKenzie and found the beautiful field and surroundings much to their liking. Enough so that the visiting Eagles throttled the host Eagles 45-7.\

The home Eagles have this week as a bye-week, and will welcome a few more athletes to the squad, which should help with depth.
