Siuslaw has a busy weekend, with
this past Thursday kicking off three
consecutive days of wrestling as the
Viks close in on district competition in
a little over a week.
Thursday, Siuslaw hosted the first of
two final home meets, hosting Coquille
and Philomath for a three-way dual
meet that included wins for senior 126-
pounder Richard Huff, the reigning
120-lb. 4A state champion, as well as
wins for sophomore Matthew Horrillo
at 285 lbs. and freshman Brady Libby
in an exhibition match at 113 lbs.
Full results were unavailable at press
time.
Yesterday, the Vikings began a two-
day stand at the annual Cottage Grove
Classic Invitational, which includes
teams from Cascade Christian,
Cleveland, Crescent Valley, Glide,
Klamath Union, La Pine, Lakeview,
Liberty and Pleasant Hill.
Matches continue today, beginning
at 10 a.m.
Siuslaw will be at home Friday, Feb.
2, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

VIEWPOINT
Most people like to think
of themselves as winners
and associate themselves
with winning teams. We
release endorphins when we
feel good, and winning feels
good to players and specta-
tors alike.
You need only to look at
the faces of spectators and
players immediately after
the contest; we know the
outcome by the look on
their faces.
I would like to test this
attitude with a simple situa-
tion.
Please do not read ahead
and, instead, respond with
your emotions when asked.
Just think of them in your
head, there is no need to
write them down and be
honest with yourself and

The Sailors picked up their third
Mountain West League basketball vic-
tory Thursday night on their home
hardwood. Mapleton took control of
its game with McKenzie early, utiliz-
ing a combination of high-pressure
defense and scoring from both inside
and outside the arc.
“We felt confident we could win as
long as we executed and played four
quarters of basketball,” said Mapleton
coach Eric Wolgamott. “The guys
played hard the whole way and stayed
very focused.”
By halftime, the Sailors held a 25-
17 lead and never relinquished their
advantage throughout the second half
despite increased pressure from the
Eagles.
Early in the third quarter, senior
post Dominic Wells nabbed a steal
and scored on a fastbreak for the first
basket of the half. But McKenzie
responded, scoring the next 6 points
before sophomore post Nate Neece
grabbed an offensive rebound that
sparked an 8-point Mapleton scoring
run.
Junior guard Evan Moso drained a
long 3-pointer then, moments later

The Vikings finished the first half of
the Far West League basketball season
last night (after press deadlines) after a
pair of home stands that began Tuesday
against North Bend.
Siuslaw junior guard Madison
Reynolds nabs a loose ball for the
Lady Viks.
In the girls game, North Bend junior
Haley Edwards gave the Lady Vikings a
tough time in double-digit scoring,
although Siuslaw freshman guard Brea
Blankenship nearly matched Edwards’
14 points with 12 of her own.
But North Bend took the lead early
and never really looked back, although
Siuslaw was poised to close the gap
