Eagle Teams In Action This Past Week
The McKenzie Six-man Varsity football team hosted the Mohawk Mustangs on Friday, September 28, in a non-league game. Mohawk originally intended to play eight-man football this season, but due to low player numbers, decided to drop down to six-man.
Because the Mustangs decided late to make the change, they are playing as an independent team, not affiliated with a league, and are, therefore, not eligible to play post-season. That doesn’t mean, however, that the Mustangs can’t play the game, and just to prove their point, the boys from over on the Mohawk downed their Eagle rivals, 26-14, which earned the Mustangs their first season victory.
Last week, on Friday, October 6, McKenzie welcomed the Triangle Lake Lakers to Wade Thomas Field for a Special District 2 North League game. The Lakers evidently liked where they landed and their game plan worked to perfection, as they sailed to a 45-0 victory over their Eagle hosts. Triangle Lake improved to 3-2 on the season and McKenzie dropped to 0-5.
The McKenzie Varsity Volleyball team notched its second victory of the season last Saturday, October 7, with a 3-0 match win over Mannahouse Academy, Eugene. The Eagles took set one, 25-3, set two, 25-6, and set three, 25-12.
Later in the day at the same gym, the gals from McKenzie dropped a match to Mohawk, losing the first set 25-8, the second set 25-2, and the third set 25-15. The Eagle team is currently 2-12 on the season.
The McKenzie Varsity Cross Country teams competed in the Stayton Regis Invitational on Thursday, October 5. In the Girls 5,000 meter race, Eagle sophomore Myra Dion finished 42nd out of 64 runners, with a time of 26:27.8 minutes. Sophie Schoolmeester of Banks posted the winning time of 20:17.5 min.. McKenzie sophomore Will Meister placed 79th out of a field of 137 runners with a 5,000-meter finish time of 21:48.0 min. Amin Diani of Banks won the Boys' race with a finish time of 17:17.1 min.
Later that same week, on Saturday, October 7, Dion ran a 5,000-meter race at the Paul Mariman Invitational held at Philomath. The Eagle runner finished 66th in the Girls Varsity race which featured 83 athletes. Dion’s finish time was 27:33.7 min.
