"Andre’s performance at Cougar Open is his season best!," exclaimed Saints co-head coach Fernando Fantroy. "He has been putting the work from the start of school year until now… In his past two meets he was too patient in his 400 meter races and now, a couple weeks from championship meet, he has nearly got it fine tuned. Andre is not settling into this accomplishment – he knows there’s more work to be done with both the Southern Region and NWAC Championships on the Horizon!"

In a 3-win week for the Storm, Holstad went 9/17 with 2 doubles and 2 home runs against South Region opponents Lane and Clark. He also drove in 8 runs and scored 8 on his own to help Chemeketa improve to 21-12 on the year.

"Jackson has been a consistent presence in our order all year and a catalyst for our success," said Storm head coach JJ Mascolo. "He is a very multidimensional  player and is one of the toughest outs in our league.  He has become a very good outfielder and an exceptional base runner being 15 of 16 on stolen bases.  With his power/speed combo he’s one of the most versatile players in our league."

Dawson Day, Centennial HS, Gresham, OR.

Day spun an impressive 6-0 victory over a strong 5th-ranked Linn-Benton club to help Mt. Hood move into 2nd place in the South. Day went 6 innings allowing only 1 hit while striking out 14 of 24 batters he faced. Offensively, the lefty also went 8 for 20 at the plate with 4 extra base hits.

"Dawson’s performance against LBCC was one of the most dominant I have seen in a while," exclaimed Saints head coach Bryan Donohue. "14 strikeouts in 6 innings of work against a quality lineup doesn’t happen very often.  One of the greatest aspects of his outing was the amount of tough battles that Linn Benton’s hitters gave him in big situations, but Dawson found a way to get the job done every time he needed to.

Cecilia Robbins, Kamiak HS, Mukilteo, WA.

The Freshman starter helped extend Edmonds’ 12-game win streak with 2 complete games on the weekend. Against both Clackamas and Clark, Robbins scattered 11 hits while only giving up 3 earned runs in both games while fanning 7. She improves her resume to 13-0 on the season with a respectable 3.51 ERA.

“With returning sophomore pitcher Riley Sykes slowed by a hamstring injury, CeeCee has stepped up and carried us on the mound," said Triton head coach Chuck Stark. "She’s got great composure and is confident in all of her pitches. It’s been a lot of fun watching her compete and interact on and off the field with her teammates. It’s kind of overlooked, but she’s also been outstanding fielding her position.”

ALBANY, Ore. — Linn-Benton Community College has hired Joe Schaumburg as its new head men’s basketball coach, Director of Athletics Mark Majeski announced today. He will begin his duties immediately.

Schaumburg has spent more than a decade coaching at the high school, community college and four-year college levels. He is a certified trainer for the Positive Coaching Alliance and owns Positive Step Athletics, a mental skills training and basketball camp operation.

“Joe brings a wealth of experience that is broad and deep,” said Majeski. “He is a well-known coach with extensive, successful experience recruiting in Oregon, the Pacific Northwest and the West Coast. He is known as an excellent teacher, communicator and mentor with a relationships-based approach. We look forward to Joe building upon a great foundation that Everett Hartman and his staff established.”

Most recently Schaumburg was an assistant coach at Pacific University in Forest Grove in 2017-18. Previously he spent four years as an assistant at Lewis & Clark College and two years as an assistant at Western Oregon. He began his coaching career at Skyline Community College (Calif.), where he previously played.

image of Joe Schaumburg “Joe distinguished himself during the hiring process by demonstrating an understanding of the mission and goals of LBCC,” Majeski continued. “His vision for the role basketball plays in supporting the College mission will serve our student-athletes, the institution and the local community well.”

Schaumburg replaces Hartman, who announced his retirement at the conclusion of this past basketball season. Hartman was head coach at LBCC for three seasons, with an overall record of 51-35. In 2017-18 he led the team to a 22-10 record, a 2nd place Southern Region finish and an NWAC Final Four appearance.

Schaumburg is a native of San Francisco, where he spent four years coaching at the high school level. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Economics, as well as his master’s degree in Sport Management, from University of San Francisco.
