The Center Foundation Player of the Game: Mia Morey

Outstanding on both ends of the court, Mia Morey scored a game-high 21 points and shut down Summit’s most potent scorer to lead Mountain View to a 64-54 victory over the host Storm in a Mountain Valley Conference girls’ varsity basketball Tuesday evening. Tallying two three-point field goals during a key 11-0 run in the first half that vaulted the Cougars to a lead the visitors would not relinquish combined with a shining effort as the one in the box-and-one defense that limited Summit’s Olivia Loberg to six points, the senior earned The Center Foundation Player of the Game honors.

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.

The Center Foundation Player of the Game: Jade Waskom

Scoring aces and kills at crucial points in the match, Jade Waskom helped lead Summit to a 3-1 (25-18, 14-25, 25-21, 25-18) victory over host Mountain View in a Mountain Valley Conference volleyball match Tuesday evening.

For her efforts, the senior team captain earned The Center Foundation Player of the Game honors.

Nine Student-Athletes From Mountain View High School Commit to Colleges

It is that time of the year when student-athletes across the country commit to the colleges and universities who are offering them scholarships, and today was signing day at Mountain View High School. 

Central Oregon Daily’s Eric Lindstrom chatted with a few of the students and Anyssa Bohanan caught up with football player Riley Straly who has fielded numerous offers before signing a letter of intent to go to Independence Community College in Kansas.

You’ll still have an opportunity to see Riley play before he heads to Kansas later this summer. He’s just one of 36 players from across the state of Oregon that’s been invited to be a part of the Les Schwab Bowl which is taking place June 16th.

Bend Fighter Makes His Professional Boxing Debut

Chris Johnson got a late start to his boxing career, making his first Golden Gloves appearance as a 22-year-old, but late last year, the 25-year-old Bend fighter became a father for the first time, and he decided that is was now or never, if he was ever going to take his shot at becoming a professional boxer.

Central Oregon Daily’s Eric Lindstrom followed Chris “The Truth” Johnson, all the way from the opening days of training camp in Bend to the final bell of his first professional fight in Medford.
