Yreka’s Ashley Cox voted NAL Most Valuable

Northern Athletic League MVP Ashley Cox

Northern Athletic League MVP Ashley Cox

In a rare move, the Northern Athletic League volleyball coaches voted a player from the third place team as the league’s 2017 Most Valuable Players–Yreka Miner Ashley Cox. The MVP is almost always selected from the championship team, and on occasion the second place finisher. Third place…not so much.

“Very proud of her and grateful that the coaches in the league saw the same value in her that we did. She was in the top two in almost every statistical category on the team. She led the league in kills and serve receive passing percentage. She was/is the best leader that I’ve been fortunate to have coached in 21 years of coaching the sport. That’s no disrespect to those who have come before her because we have had some great ones, but she has reset the bar,” said Yreka Coach Scott Eastman.

Three other Miners were recognized by the NAL:

All-League: Hailey Conner (3rd in Kills)

All-League: Madeline Eastman (1st in Aces, 1st in service points, 3rd in Assists, 7th in digs)

Honorable Mention: Callie Currie (2nd in NAL in digs, 4th in serve receive passing percentage) (more…)

PurrFectPawsADThe College of the Siskiyous Eagles flattened the Feather River College Golden Eagles 59-12 on Saturday at Herschel Meredith Stadium. Siskiyous scored on its opening drive. FRC returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown, but not another peep would be heard from the Gilded Eagles until a meaningless TD in the final minute. In between, COS put up 52 unanswered points.

With the win, the Eagles (8-2) will be the three-seed in the NorCal Championship playoffs. Their first round opponent is #2 San Mateo (9-1), the Bay-6 Conference champion. The NorCal champ will face the south region champion for the state title.

After a 54-yard kickoff return by Makhal Gaston, Siskiyous began its first drive at the FRC 46. Four plays later, Gage Ferguson passed to 272-pound fullback Beniah Greene for a 12-yard TD. “Mr. Automatic,” Kyle Sentkowski added the extra point, for a 7-0 lead at 13:28.

Dakarai Hamilton returned the ensuing kickoff 101 yards for an FRC touchdown. The PAT was blocked by Eagle Justin Kaelin, leaving COS on top 7-6, with 13:12 left in the opening quarter.

A less than spectacular 14-yard punt by FRC, was returned 36 yards by Chance Nelson for a TD, with 6:42 to go in the quarter. Add in Sentkowski’s PAT, for a 14-6 Eagle advantage. (more…)

Thanks a Latte Yreka Miners Golfer of the Week: Rodriguez 2X

GolfPOW Rodriguez

Yreka Golf Coach Bryce Cummings’ choice for the Thanks a Latte Yreka Miners Golfer of the Week is Maryssa Rodriguez.

Cummings had a great deal of praise for Rodriguez.

When you think of a team MVP you think of a player who can be dependable. You think of a player who can avoid the season ending injury. You think of this player as a team role model. Junior athlete Maryssa Rodriguez is an athlete with all the tangibles you want as a team MVP.

Coming off a great sophomore season, where she had qualified for sections, Maryssa was poised to have another great season with the Yreka High School Girls Varsity Golf team. Not only was this season a great one, it was one that should never be forgotten. As the team made its way through the season, Maryssa was able to score well in all her matches putting her in a position to battle for the NAL MVP title. It literally came down to the final round of golf where she had to play well to reach the rank of league MVP.

Unfortunately, Maryssa did not come home with the league MVP title. What she did accomplish was a Northern Athletic League All-League honor, and a trip to the section championships. She has gone further than any other player in YHS history, and is the first to achieve many things on and off the golf course for YHS.

Maryssa’s personality, along with her athleticism, allows her to be a great teammate and a great team captain. While sometimes quiet, she is always there for her teammates and is always trying to make everyone a better player on the golf course. Congratulations to Maryssa on an amazing Girls Varsity Golf season.
