Woahink Invitational Cancelled Due To Winds

On the Cross Country Course… It wasn’t the rain, but the wind that prompted cancellation of Saturday’s scheduled Woahink Invitational.  Forecasted winds of up to 70 miles an hour prompted Siuslaw School District officials to cancel the meet Friday afternoon out of concerns for safety.  It will not be rescheduled.

Pac 12 Football

On the college gridiron… Oregon State’s Sean Mannion set a school record with six touchdown passes and is the first quarterback in the nation to reach 2,000 yards passing.  That effort paced the Beavers to a 44-17 rout of Colorado Saturday afternoon in Corvallis.

In Eugene, De’Anthony Thomas injured his ankle on the opening kickoff return and sat out the rest of the game, but it turns out the Number 2 Ducks were ok without him.  They swamped the Cal Bears 55 – 16 Saturday night.  The turf was slick from a driving rain and the junior running back slipped, injuring himself.  Thomas was frank about his situation even though he didn’t have an exact diagnosis… as for next week’s game at Colorado, Thomas would only say, “we’ll see”.
