Former Junction City graduate transfers to NWCU

Posted on 07 August 2012 by admin

Former All Sky-Em midfielder Cheyenne Miner sends the ball upfield in the Tigers’ round 1 game against the Hidden Valley Mustangs on Nov. 9, 2010. Miner will join the Northwest Christian University Beacons in 2012 after transferring from the University of Oregon.

By Phil Hawkins
Sports Editor
JUNCTION CITY – Former Junction City girls soccer player Cheyenne Miner will be changing uniforms next season, but she won’t have to move very far play. The 2011 graduate of Junction City High School recently signed a letter of intent to play at Northwest Christian University after playing her freshman year for the University of Oregon’s club team.
Miner played for the Ducks in her first year for the team and tore her ACL during the spring season. She is recovering from surgery to the ligament, with average recovery time ranging from four months up to several years, but Miner is expected to challenge for a position in the Beacons’ starting lineup in 2013.
NWCU, which borders the University of Oregon campus in Eugene, is in sore need of help after finishing the 2011 season in last place in the Cascade Collegiate Conference with a 1-15 record. The Beacons scored only three goals all season and were shutout in 14 contests.
Miner could help rejuvenate the team once she recovers. The 5-7 midfielder was named to the all-conference team in her final three years with Junction City for her physical play, passing skills and powerful right foot.
In those three years, the Tigers finished with three straight winning seasons and a record of 26-19-1 overall. The team’s apex came in 2010 when they finished 10-6-1 and finished the season with six wins in seven games to earn a trip to the OSAA State Tournament.
She also started for Junction City as a freshman, earning an all-conference honorable mention nod for part on a state qualifying team.

Introducing the new Olympic event: The Backyard Pentathlon

Introducing the new Olympic event: The Backyard Pentathlon

Posted on 10 July 2012 by admin

Even those with no access to a backyard can hold their own Backyard Pentathlon with a quick trip to a local park. Most city parks receive regular maintenance during the summer months, making for ideal conditions to play bocce (pictured above), croquet and other popular yard games.

By Phil Hawkins
Sports Editor

As we descend into the depths of July, three things come to mind. 1) Its hot. 2) At least it’s not as hot as it is elsewhere in the country. 3) The 2012 Summer Olympics are just around the corner!
The Olympics is great in so many ways, but I always appreciate that it breaks up the monopoly that major league baseball has on the summer months. Above all else, I crave variety in sports, and the months between the end of the NBA season and the beginning of college football is the only time of the year in which only one every-day sport is available to follow.
But once every four years, the Summer Olympics comes along and gives us two weeks of solid entertainment in sporting events that typically aren’t broadcasted to a national audience very often.
The only problem with the Olympics is that unlike the major professional sports in America, Olympic events are not easy to translate into a backyard game. It’s easy to organize a pickup game of basketball or play a game of catch with a football or baseball. It’s not so easy to pick up fencing, diving, gymnastics or the decathlon with a group of buddies.
Until now.
In the spirit of the 2012 Summer Games, I’ve put together the Backyard Pentathlon, a grueling endurance test pitting friends and family against each other in the five signature yard games of our time. It’s silly. It’s childish. It’s fun.
1. Bocce – The first event is one of my personal favorites, but it is not widely popular because of its reputation as a sport for only old greasy Italian men. That’s unfortunate, because bocce is fun, easy to learn and even easier to play. It’s really nothing more than tossing a small ball into the lawn and then rolling larger balls toward it to see who can get the closest. And if you can’t afford a $30-$50 set, a golf ball and a few baseballs are cheap alternates.
2. Croquet – Probably the signature event in the Backyard Pentathlon. When someone says ‘yard game,’ I instinctively think of croquet because it’s so synonymous with youthful fun in the back yard. Believe me, there’s nothing quite like seeing a child’s eyes light up the first time you hand one a mallet and tell them to go whack the bejesus out of wooden ball.

State qualifier: Sheela Deskins

State qualifier: Sheela Deskins

Posted on 10 July 2012 by admin

Harrisburg senior Sheela Deskins qualified to compete in four events at the OHSET State Championships in May. She went on to place first in the Keyhole event one day after competing in the track and field state championships.

By Phil Hawkins
Sports Editor

HARRISBURG – Over the past three seasons, Harrisburg senior Sheela Deskins has been the Eagles’ most consistently talented athlete on the track. The skilled hurdler and high jumper made a name for herself in 2010 when she qualified for the state championships in the 100-meter hurdles, the 300-meter hurdles and the high jump.
She went on to place in the top six in all three events at state to cap a season in which two of her personal records managed to go unbroken through Deskins’ junior and senior seasons. As if that wasn’t enough, Deskins also happens to be one of the top equestrian riders in the state.
The logistics of Deskins’ duel spring sports is especially difficult in May when both sports host their annual state championship competition over the same weekend. In the past, Deskins has been forced to choose between competing in the track championships in Monmouth over the equestrian championships in Redmond.
But in her final year of high school competition, Deskins couldn’t pass up her last chance to compete at the equestrian state championships, so she chose to participate in both events.
On May 18, Deskins competed in the high jump and the 100 hurdles. The following day, she was three hours away competing in the OHSET State Equestrian Meet where she placed 40th in Pole Bending, 31st in Barrels and ninth in Figure 8. In her best event, Keyhole, Deskins went on to set a personal-record time of 7.09 seconds to win the state championship in her final athletic competition wearing a Harrisburg uniform.
It was a remarkable achievement for the senior equestrian, though not entirely unexpected. Since her sophomore year, Deskins has placed first in five out of seven meets in which she recorded a time. In the two meets she did not win, Deskins finished second.
