Softball – The Lady Loggers are struggling to start the season. They entered Northwest League play with a 2-6 record and then proceeded to drop three straight games to Gaston 5-8, 4-7 and 8-10. With only four schools fielding a team in the league this year, every league match up is crucial. The Lady Loggers have upcoming non-league games against Kennedy, at home against Portland Christian on Thursday, April 23 and return to League play against Knappa at home on Tuesday, April 28.
Baseball – Coach Joe Walters young Loggers team has had mixed results to start their season. After going 0-3 in non-league play, the Loggers began league play by sweeping a three game series from Nestucca, then dropped three straight to Gaston.
The Loggers have gotten strong pitching from Bailey Morrison. Offensively the Loggers have been making good contact, but were not hitting the ball hard early in the season and have mostly scored runs by stringing together singles. Brendyn Millikin has been getting on base and scoring runs. Brett Elliot has consistently put together multiple hit games and is driving in runs, along with Hayden Cieloha. The rest of the team is regularly getting on base.
The Loggers host upcoming home double headers against Portland Lutheran on Friday, April 17 and against Faith Bible on Friday, April 24. Read More
