Athletes of the Week

(For the week April 10-15)


Kaitlyn Truax, Madelynn Weaver, Knappa

Truax the junior catcher and Weaver the freshman pitcher have played big roles in leading the Lady Loggers to a perfect 4-0 start in league play.

In a 14-6, 24-10 sweep over Neah-Kah-Nie April 14, the two combined for 22 runs batted in. Truax was 6-for-7 with two doubles, a triple and 13 RBIs; Weaver had nine RBIs and had a home run in Game 2.

Three days earlier, Weaver was the winning pitcher, allowing just two hits with five strikeouts and no walks, and helped her cause with a two-run homer at the plate. Truax was 2-for-4 with a double.

Weaver has been the winning pitcher in all four Logger league victories.

The junior shot a career-low 80 to lead the boys golf team to a Cowapa League match win over Banks on April 13, helping the Gulls lower their team score for the fifth consecutive outing to open the season.

“Jackson went the whole round with nothing worse than a bogey and carded 10 pars along the way,” said Seaside coach Jim Poetsch. “He became our first player this year to break 40 on a nine as he shot three-over-par 39 on the back.”

Kunde opened the current week with a team-best 85 in a loss to Scappoose, in which Kunde played even with Scappoose golfer Nathan Mapes (also one of the Cowapa’s top golfers) on the back nine.
