It's district play-off and state competition week and the LOGGERS are right in the thick of it. First off in track and field the logger boys team won the district meet by 30 points, the girls team finished a strong third. In the process the teams combined to advance 15 to the state competition and their head coach, Byron Brown, was named track coach of the year for the North West Conference. The team will be heading to Eugene on Wednesday for state competition to be held Thursday and Friday.
The baseball team took two from Gaston last Friday and qualified them for the league play-offs at Pacific University this coming Wednesday at 4:30. The softball team will play the same day and time in their league play-offs also to be held at Pacific. The baseball team will play Neah-Kah-Nie and the softball team will play Nestucca. In order to advance they must win and defeat the next play-off team to move on to the state tournament.
