Once upon a time…

East Applegate Ridge Trail

East Applegate Ridge Trail

Yesterday we discovered a new trail less than 40 minutes from Ashland. The trail isn’t actually new, but it’s rare that we stumble upon a new trail to us after living in Southern Oregon for 20 years. The trail is a little over 10-miles out and back or five miles if you leave a car at one end. There is a parking lot at each end, although some trail descriptions say there is no parking on the west side. That parking lot (difficult to find as there are no signs on Highway 238 near Ruch) is relatively new.

Turkey sex

We had about 10 female turkeys prance through our back yard a couple days ago. They were followed by two males who started a mating ritual which drew one of the females back. What followed was an interesting five minutes or so which included a feathery head massage before they got down to business.

Tate Hoffman achieves All-American status

The abrupt ending of this year’s NAIA basketball season was difficult for the 16 remaining teams, including three from the Cascade Conference. No National Champion was crowned, and all three CCC teams had a legitimate shot with College of Idaho being a number 1 seed and SOU and OIT being number 2 seeds. How cool would it have been had there been three CCC teams in the final four?

Tate Hoffman received a bit of a consolation prize with his All-American achievement being announced yesterday.

BTW, Massey had SOU at #6 in their final rankings.

NAIA cancels spring sports

The #1-ranked 2020 SOU softball team

@SOURaiders @SOU_Softball

“After convening the Council of Presidents Executive Committee this morning, and with input from the National Administrative Council and National Eligibility Committee, the decision has been made to cancel the spring 2020 sports season, effective immediately.

We know this is extremely disappointing, especially for our student-athletes. All possible options for maintaining the spring season were discussed at great length by multiple governance groups. However, the growing state of emergency due to COVID-19, as well as the Center for Disease Control’s recommendation yesterday to limit gatherings to fewer than 50 people for eight weeks, meant we could not in good conscience move forward, possibly putting student-athletes, staff, and fans at risk.

In an effort to provide relief, no spring sport student-athlete will be charged a season of competition. Any spring sport student-athlete who was enrolled full-time in 2020 will be awarded two additional semester terms of attendance or the equivalent.

We know there are outstanding questions regarding relief for winter sport student-athletes, implications on transfer regulations, and impacts to academic eligibility rules. We are working closely with the appropriate governance groups to determine answers and will continue to share information with membership as it becomes available.”
