Day one of three of this massive tournament begins in Reno, Nevada in a few minutes. We are the #12 seed but hoping for a top ten performance.


Not much of a throwback Thursday today as this happened just last week. However, this photo is racking up favorites on Flickr at an unprecedented rate so I thought I would share it here too. Clearly the “agony of defeat” is more popular than the “thrill of victory.”

In fairness to this steeplechaser (who was not an SOU athlete BTW), although she had troubles with the water jump on every lap, she finished in the middle of the pack and was far from last place.

Members of the Southern Oregon University football, volleyball, soccer, and wrestling teams boarded buses this morning in Ashland to go to Salem. Some recent grads came down from Portland. Laurence Calcagno made a triumphant entry on his motorcycle.

Amelia Maguin wins fourth “Athlete of the Week” award of 2015

SOU track and field Amelia Maguin

SOU was in second place when the baton was handed to Amelia Maguin for the anchor leg of the 4×100 relay.

@SOURaiders @SOUTrackXC @maguingirl1

Amelia Maguin broke the SOU record by .37 seconds in the 200 meters this past Saturday in Ashland. She also won the 100-meter hurdles and was on two winning relay teams (one pictured above). She opted not to compete in her best event (where she is ranked #1 in the entire NAIA with a time more than 2 seconds faster than anyone), the 400-meter hurdles, as there wasn’t any competition.

2015 SOU Open – Amelia Maguin and Lauren McGowne (100m hurdles)

@SOURaiders @SOUTrackXC @maguingirl1 @LMcGowne

Yesterday saw the return of track and field to Raider Stadium for the first time in five years. Details here. Despite being April, the weather felt like summer. You won’t have to wait long to get in on the next competition in Ashland as Southern Oregon will also host the Cascade Conference Championships on May 8 and 9.
