Newport volleyball ends losing drought

WOODBURN — For one year, 11 months and 10 days, the Newport volleyball team went without a victory. The Cubs’ last win came on Oct. 8, 2016, a 2-0 win over Gladstone in the Seaside Tournament. That streak of 710 days was finally snapped on Tuesday, Sept. 18 in Woodburn when the Cubs defeated Woodburn in three sets. When they scored their 25th point of the third set, the team celebrated accordingly. “It felt like we had won the state championship,” said first-year head coach Vicky Roller. “It was like Mt. Everest and we got to the top.”

Cubs bit by Bulldogs

It has been quite some time since Newport was in a game like the one they played against Woodburn on Tuesday, Sept. 19. The Bulldogs came to Newport and showed exactly why they are the two-time defending 5A state champions by handing the Cubs a 4-0 loss on their home field. It was the first time Newport has been shut out in a match since Sept. 15, 2016, a span of 38 games. “My first year four years ago, North Marion and Stayton played for the state championship,” said head coach Ollie Richardson. “That very first year of coaching North Marion and Stayton were a level above us...Not saying that we can’t compete with Woodburn, but if we can’t score against them it’s gonna be really hard to beat them. We have to put the ball in the back of the net to beat them.”

Cubs overwhelm Vikings

A trap was looming, and the Newport football team was well aware of it. The Cubs were coming off a big win, a redemption win over a Phoenix team that had knocked them out of the playoffs last season. There was a fear amongst the team of falling into a trap in the non-conference finale against Siuslaw Vikings. “Everyone was actually more nervous for this game than the Phoenix game, surprisingly,” said senior running back/linebacker Tanner Stottlemyre. “Maybe because they were the underdogs, but once we got out there we knew we were going to win.
