EDDYVILLE — The first time that Eddyville Charter and Siletz Valley squared off on the hardwood in 2013, the Warriors delivered a somber wakeup call to the new basketball program by handing the Eagles a 74-17 loss. The lopsided outcomes continued between the two schools separated by 20 miles. The margin of victory in the next six meetups was an average of 34 — all wins by the Warriors. “We were realistic with where we were at,” said head coach Mike Ulstad. “Majority of our kids had not played basketball those first couple of seasons. Just seeing how those teams played for Siletz and well they played together, how well they pushed the ball and how they attacked the basket. It was a good experience for them, obviously not as fun when you get beat that badly.” Now, Eddyville Charter head coach Mike Ulstad believe that his squad can compete against the team that have put a beat down on his Eagles for three years.
