PREP FOOTBALL COVERAGE: The Prep Football tab at — you can see it by hovering over the Sports tab — will show you high school softball and baseball stories and photos by sports editors, reporters and photographers from 19 newspapers within our company. As the 2017 season continues, you can look for same-day coverage of each week's Friday night games from all our company's high school sports editors and reporters. As always, you'll still be able to find stories about our local high school teams on the regular sports tab of our website, but those stories — along with all the others created elsewhere within our company — will also appear on the new Prep Football tab. These stories will stay up on our respective websites throughout the season, making it easy to track down older game stories from weeks and even months ago. The coverage will proceed into the homestretch of conference play and extend throughout the postseason.

Southridge in search of new coaches

Trisha Shoemaker was hired to take over for Bryan Sorenson as the Athletic Director at Southridge High School. SHRS has had a lot of changes in its athletic department but is very excited with its new coaching hires to help continue the great athletic traditions at Southridge. Shoemaker and the Skyhawks are looking for a new head varsity softball coach at Southridge High School and a new head water polo coach. If someone is interested they can contact Shoemaker at the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 503-720-5464. As far as the softball job Southridge doesn't have any specific qualification so it is willing to interview anyone and see if they fit what we are looking for at SRHS.

Top Performers

Coleman Newsom: Newsom, a senior quarterback on the Sunset football team, was superb against Aloha, throwing for five first half touchdowns to help the Apollos rout the Warriors on Friday. The Apollos have won their last three games since dropping both of their non-league games against Skyview and Sheldon.

Ally Thom: Thom, a senior forward on the Sunset girls' soccer team, scored three goals in the first 17 minutes of the first half against Southridge to help the Apollos beat their Metro League rival, 3-0 last week. Thom's hat trick was all the Apollos needed to roll to the win.

Lindsey Lambert: Lambert, a junior setter on the Southridge volleyball team, was everywhere helping the Skyhawks beat Jesuit in five sets for the second time this season. Whether it was passing, serving, blocking balls at the net or providing sound leadership, the team captain had a huge hand in ensuring Southridge would stay undefeated this season.

What's Ahead

Sunset at Southridge football: The Apollos have played well as of late, winning their last three games including a rout of Aloha last week. The Skyhawks have surprised so far, beating both Beaverton and Westview on the road to run their record to 2-1 in Metro. Southridge senior quarterback Bradley Bickler and his comrades will try to keep the momentum going against a stiff Sunset defense held the Warriors scoreless for a half last week. Sunset's offense, led by Coleman Newsom and his vast array of weapons, is cruising right now and presents a formidable opposition for the Skyhawk defense. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Southridge High School.

Jesuit at Westview boys soccer: To this point in the year, Westview has made a mockery of the Metro League. In three games the Wildcats have outscored their opposition 15-0 including a 6-0 bashing of Sunset on Monday. Granted, Westview did drop a non-league game to Lakeridge last week, but the Pacers are the defending 6A state champions. The Wildcats get another strong barometer test when they host defending league champion Jesuit on Monday. Kickoff is slated for 6:45 p.m. at Westview High School.
