Last night was the fourth annual Raider Awards (AKA 2016 Black and Red All-Sports Awards) on the SOU campus. Always a fun event, it’s kind of sad to see the seniors go. Most of them will be walking this Saturday at 2016 Commencement.
Strangely, Southern Oregon has to travel to Kentucky while Dickinson State (North Dakota) goes to Redding, just a couple hours from Ashland. SOU and Dickinson are only five spots from each other in the rankings so it doesn’t make much sense. Details here.
Tickets are still available for the annual Raider Club Scholarship Dinner and Auction.
The event will be held April 21 at 5:30 p.m. in the Rogue River Room on the SOU Campus.
Tickets are $50 per person and tables can be purchased for $500. To purchase tickets, call 541-552-6824 or email Bobby Heiken at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Scholarship Dinner and Auction raises scholarship money for student-athletes at SOU. The event features a silent auction, a live auction, a scholarship ask and dinner provided by Beasy’s On The Creek.
Last year’s event brought in over $85,000 for the student-athletes of SOU.

You can read about SOU’s 6th place standing in the Directors’ Cup here. Digging into the data a little deeper reveals that the schools in front of Southern in the rankings all have swim teams (SOU, and most NAIA schools, do not). If you back out the swim points, SOU is actually in first place!
With less than 30 teams competing in swimming at the NAIA level, why does swimming get equal rating with football (87 programs have football)? Or basketball (over 130 programs have basketball in NAIA DII)?
