Cubs overwhelm Vikings

A trap was looming, and the Newport football team was well aware of it. The Cubs were coming off a big win, a redemption win over a Phoenix team that had knocked them out of the playoffs last season. There was a fear amongst the team of falling into a trap in the non-conference finale against Siuslaw Vikings. “Everyone was actually more nervous for this game than the Phoenix game, surprisingly,” said senior running back/linebacker Tanner Stottlemyre. “Maybe because they were the underdogs, but once we got out there we knew we were going to win.

TOLEDO — The Toledo volleyball team entered their Sunset Conference schedule riding a three-game winning streak. But the excitement entering the game wasn’t so much about getting the fourth straight win as much as it was starting league play on the right foot. “All day today we were like ‘it’s gameday, it’s gameday,’” said junior Kaycie Otis. “And we just came out on the floor and kicked butt.” The Boomers accomplished their goal of starting league play off on the right foot, handing Myrtle Point 3-0 defeat in straight sets.

A win for the record books

Mark it down. At 5:38 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 12, something that has never happened in Waldport finally happened. With a 4-2 win over the Corvallis freshman team, the Irish earned its first soccer victory in school history. “It feels great, kids are loving it,” said head coach Dutch Fortmeyer. “I loved having the crowd behind us, it really pumped the kids up. They are starting to put things together, they are communicating, they’re lifting their heads and looking around, making the passes they need to make. They are starting to figure it out. I like it.” Against the Spartans, Fortmeyer kept the ball in the attacking third for the majority of the match. Fortmeyer noticed that the players did a better job with their spacing and being more aggressive without the ball, something they have been working on in practice.
