Siuslaw wrestling standout Isaiah Burkhalter is Coast Radio Sports’ Athlete of the Week. The freshman grappler pulled off a huge upset at the Far West District meet, winning both of his matches by fall on the way to the individual title at 112 pounds. His first pin came at 2:44 in the first match. The second, in the final, came at 4:58 over North bend junior Skyler Midcap. Honorable mention is given to Mapleton’s Brody Ford who had a triple-double on the court last week in the Sailors’ win over Mohawk: 25 points; 23 rebounds; and 11 blocked shots.
On the schedule… the Siuslaw Vikings open the final week of regular season play in Far West Basketball in North Bend. Airtime on Coast Radio Sports is at 5:45 with the girls’ game first, the boys immediately following.
The Mapleton boys will play Lowell tomorrow night in a Mountain West League basketball playoff.
