PHS boys soccer: Mark Grimmer

Philomath's Mark Grimmer scores his third goal after getting past Cascade's goalkeeper and other defenders.

Hey Warriors fans, today is Wednesday, Sept. 18.

While taking a look at the OSAA’s executive board minutes from Sept. 9, I noticed something that Philomath fans might be interested to know that came out of their decisions on championship venues.

First, all games in the Class 4A basketball state championships this winter will be played at Forest Grove High School. This is a change from the past with some games also played at Pacific University.

Second, the state championships in swimming will be staged at the Tualatin Hills Aquatic Center.

Third, and this one is probably the most exciting, the track and field championships will return to the University of Oregon’s Hayward Field. State track is scheduled for May 28-30.

We had a full slate of PHS action Tuesday and the Warriors swept both soccer games and the volleyball match. The rain didn’t slow down Philomath’s boys in a 3-1 victory.

The Nick Stucki to Mark Grimmer connection worked well against the Cougars. Grimmer was a problem for whatever defender Cascade tried to use on him. The defense played well and as the coach pointed out, Noah Aynes did a great job on Cascade’s top players.

The volleyball and girls soccer teams were both up at Cascade and neither were challenged much. Both of those squads will see tougher opponents Thursday at home against Sisters, especially the volleyball team.

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you at the next game.
