Lady Miners survive Lion attack

Etna v Yreka Varsity Front copy

The Yreka Miners varsity volleyball team may have thought they could just walk over the Etna Lions on Tuesday night. Instead, they ran into a pesky, scrappy and much improved Lion squad that battled the Miners hard in the first two sets, and then turned around and took the third set. Eventually, Yreka prevailed 3-1, but the Lions showed that they are no longer pushovers.

Early in the first set, Etna opened up a 3-point lead, 9-6, on an ace by Megan Menne. The Lions led 14-12, when Yreka started to fight back. An Etna miscue started a 7-0 run for the Miners. Taylor Callahan had a pair of aces in the streak, and Katie Bennett added a kill, to give Yreka a 19-14 lead. A Bennett ace made it set-point, 24-16, but the Lions refused to rollover and put up the next three points, including a kill by Bo Murray and an ace from Menne. Marina Sanchez notched the set-winning kill for the Miners, 25-19. (more…)

Etna v Yreka Frosh JV Front copy

There are 60 photos in the slide show. The first half is mostly Yreka and the second half is mostly Etna.

The evening of volleyball in Etna on Tuesday started with a scrimmage between the Lions’ junior varsity and the Yreka Miners’ frosh. No score was kept, but the Etna squad appeared to have the better of the play. The most exciting match of the night was perhaps the junior varsity showdown, with Etna winning 2-1.

The Etna JVs took the first set from Yreka 25-17.

The Miners bounced back with a hard-fought 26-24 victory in set-two.

The third set went Etna’s way 15-11.

SiskiyouYouth on Twitter

Yes, it’s true. I’ve finally broken down and joined the world of Twitter. I do so with some reluctance. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it’s because of the constant headlines with some narcissist celebrity tweeting their every move, and worse yet, their every thought. I mean, who wants to join that crowd?

However, I’ve been persuaded by several friends and one of my website/internet gurus that it would be good for SiskiyouYouth to utilize Twitter. So, that’s what we’ll do and see how it works out.

One thing we are doing different from other Siskiyou County media is providing a Twitter feed directly on the SiskiyouYouth website. Why? Well, it’s because that way people who don’t want to be part of the Twitter-verse can still get the benefit of the somewhere close to real time score updates that SiskiyouYouth will be providing in tweets.

If you look to the right of this article in the side bar, you’ll see the feed and, of course, the cute little birdie that you can click to follow SiskiyouYouth on Twitter if you choose. Along with up to date game scores, we’ll also be tweeting notifications when new stories are posted on SiskiyouYouth.

BTW if you’re expecting me to tweet selfies in front of bars, or tweet when I’m headed to the restroom, it ain’t gonna happen…and that’s a good thing.
