Siuslaw track and field standout Carissa Oliver is Coast Radio Sports’ Athlete of the Week. The senior thrower finished fourth in two events at the prestigious Oregon Relays at Eugene’s Hayward Field. She also improved her best mark in the shot put with a toss of 40-feet-5 ½-inches, the fourth longest in school history. Her discus mark was also the fourth longest in school history; 130-feet-11 ½ inches.
Honorable mention is given to fellow thrower Trent Reavis who was sixth in the shot put, 12th in the discus and seventh in the javelin with a personal best throw of 164-feet-7 ½-inches… the fifth longest throw in school history.
