TOLEDO — Toledo’s Head Coach Steve Cragun was playing scout team quarterback at the Boomers’ practice this week. Finding people who can play quarterback has become a challenge for Toledo. Entering Friday’s matchup on the road at Hepner, the Boomers are down to their third-string quarterback after injuries to both Nate Cross and Jaxson Rozewski. Junior Jon Greenawald will move over from running back and take the reigns of the offense against Hepner. Playing quarterback isn’t foreign to Greenawald, as he ran a similar offense at his previous school before transferring to Toledo this year. When Cragun broke the news to Greenwald, his eyes lit up with excitement. “He’s pretty athletic, he’s got good speed, running the read-option stuff is good for him,” Cragun said. “I’m excited for what he can do, we just have to get him throwing the ball because he hasn’t thrown in a while.”

NEWPORT — The Newport Cross Country team is back on track after a week of no competition. Two weeks after the boy’s varsity team finished 16th and the girls finished eighth at the Ultimook Race Nike Invitational in Tillamook, the team will race in the hilly Harrier’s Challenge on Saturday, Sept. 16. In his time coaching in Lincoln County, Tom Swinford has never had his team run Harrier’s Challenge — this is new territory for him and the team. Nineteen teams are registered to race. The race will look much different that Ultimook Race, which was an adventure race where runners had to go through obstacles. Harrier’s challenge will be a more standard run, which Swinford says will have its fair share of hills.
