- Running for the Cougars of Clackamas Community College,Grace Viuhkola (HRV '11) took 12th at the NWAACC championship meet last week with a time of 19:50.
While the cross country runners were busy, a former Eagle soccer and track and field star hauled in quite an honor in her first collegiate soccer season. Emily thompson finished with six goals for the Lewis and Clark Pioneers.
- Thompson made all-first team Northwest Conference after helping the Pioneers 2012 squad which "broke the record for most conference wins in a season and tied the record for most wins in a season, as well as broke the records for least number of goals allowed in a season and most goals scored in a conference game."
In the recently started college basketball season, Chris Dirks (HRV '11) will be back on the court for Linfield this winter.
