The Summit High School Girls’ Cross-Country team has been ranked Number One in the country for the past month, but on Saturday, they get a chance to win that top spot at the national competition in the Portland area.
Central Oregon Daily’s Eric Lindstrom caught up with three of the runners before they left town for their title shot.

The Center Foundation Player of the Game: Hannah Sauer

Leading a balanced team effort, Hannah Sauer recorded ten kills, two blocks and five aces to lead Summit High School to a 3-1 (25-21, 25-21, 18-25, 25-22) victory over host Bend in a Mountain Valley Conference volleyball game before a raucous crowd Tuesday night.

Helping Summit advance to 12-1 in league play, the sophomore right side hitter earned The Center Foundation Player of the Game honors.

The Center Foundation Player of the Game: West Salem’s Simon Thompson

Continuing to feast on Central Oregon defenses, Simon Thompson tossed six touchdown passes and ran for a score to lead visiting West Salem High School to a 46-28 victory over Mountain View High School in a Special District 6 football game at Jack Harris Stadium Friday evening.

The senior quarterback, who completed a school record seven scoring aerials in a 56-27 victory over Bend earlier in the season, earned The Center Foundation Player of the Game honors. West Salem is now 3-0 in league play.

The Center Foundation Player of the Game: Luke Musgrave

201 yards rushing for Payton Davis. 207 yards passing for Cooper Simmonds. But, constantly disrupting the Summit offense and returning an interception 44 yards for a touchdown just before the end of the first half to give the visitors a lead they would not relinquish, earned Luke Musgrave The Center Foundation Player of the Game honors in Bend’s 40-23 victory over the host Storm Friday evening in a Special District 6 football game.
