There's plenty to update everyone on this fine Wednesday, so let's get to it.
In today's The Oregonian, it was announced that senior Angie Bailey and junior Melanie Ceciliani were All-State selections in volleyball. Outside hitter Bailey was named to the first team while Ceciliani made the second team. Coach Rosie Honl, along with Mountain View's Jill Waskom, were named the Co-Coaches of the Year for the Class 5A. This is the third such award for Honl, who was the Class 4A's coach of the year in 2000 and 2003.
Prineville's Charly Crawford moved up a spot in the average standings at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas last night. Crawford, a header in team roping, finished in fourth place for round six last night with partner Cody Hintz of Spring Creek, Nev. The two clocked a time of 6.6 seconds and earned $6,718.75. With the fourth-place finish, Crawford went up one spot -- from third to second -- in the overall average. His average time is 57.00 seconds, while Chad Masters sits in first-place in the average with a time of 51.90 seconds. The NFR wraps up on Dec. 9.
Last night, the Crook County Cowboys upended the Redmond Panthers in what is now a non-conference rivalry. This marks two years in a row that the Cowboys have defeated the Panthers, after last year's win ended a 22-year winless drought for the Cowboys. I guess you could say the Cowboys are making it a habit now. The final score was 67-57.
For the Cowgirls, they lost at Redmond 65-39. No details have been reported.
