Yreka v Central Valley (10) copy

YrekaTransferNewThe week started out promising for the Yreka Miners varsity softball team, with a 12-0 game-one win over the Central Valley Falcons on Tuesday, in Shasta Lake City. The Miners rapped out 13 hits, including a big fly by Shannon White.

However, Yreka dropped the second contest of the doubleheader 5-3, and had 10 strikeouts

The batting woes continued at home on Thursday, when the Miners lost the third game of the series 6-0. Yreka managed just four hits, while fanning 14 times.

Miners with hits were Kayla Buker (2), Shannon White and Gladys Donahue.

Shannon White pitched well for Yreka, allowing two earned runs, five hits and no walks, while striking out seven. The Miners’ defensive performance wasn’t quite as good, committing five errors. Catcher Ashley Cox threw out a Falcon attempting to swipe a base. (more…)

Max Michelon (back row 3rd from left) finished 7th at the NorCal Multi Championships

12665847_1026859310686570_697724252_nWeed High School grad Max Michelon competed at the 2016 NorCal Multi Championships last week at Hartnell College, finishing in 7th place for the Decathlon. Below are COS Eagles Coach Les Courtemanche’s comments about Michelon’s performance.

Max came into the competition as an alternate seeded 12th. I told Max at the beginning of the competition that it is an honor to even compete at a championship competition let alone be able to get top-8 and receive points. I told him to go out there and have some fun and enjoy the day along with the field of competitors from across the North State.

Max did just that, starting off the day having PR’d in the 100m (11.91) long jump (20’1) and Shot Put (36’3). After a set back in the high jump, Max rebounded and ran a 55 sec 400m dash which landed him into 8th place overall for day-1. (more…)
