Local 1A squads plugging through seasons
The C.S. Lewis volleyball team split two games over the span of a week, bringing its record to 2-3 overall in a shortened season. The Watchmen have traded off wins and losses for the first five games of their season, the latest pair of games a five-set win over Crosshill Christian on March 16 and a 3-0 loss to Perrydale March 18.
C.S. Lewis plays Friday night as well, hosting Jewell, and has an important matchup with regional compatriot and state powerhouse St. Paul on March 23. Their remaining schedule includes three matches against Livingstone Adventist, Willamette Valley Christian and Falls City.
The Watchmen athletic program is fielding a boys soccer team as well, and the squad has yet to pick up a draw or victory. C.S. Lewis is 0-5 with losses including 8-1 and 4-2 to Open Door Christian, 5-3 and 11-6 to Livingstone Adventist, and 11-7 to Southwest Christian.
Two games remain on the team's schedule, a matchup with North Clackamas Christian's junior varsity squad on March 31 and a second tilt with Southwest Christian on April 2.
After a shocking loss to Powder Valley the previous week, St. Paul's football team got back to its winning ways on March 18 with a 42-12 victory over Falls City/Kings Valley Charter. One game is left on the Buckaroos' schedule: a home matchup with 2A Lost River, a team hailing from Merrill.
St. Paul volleyball split another pair of matches in its previous week, losing 3-0 to Kennedy on March 16 and defeating Falls City 3-0 two days later. The Bucks travel to play a neutral site game against North Clackamas Christian on Saturday, then look ahead to matches at Kennedy on Monday and a tripleheader versus Dufur, Days Creek and C.S. Lewis on March 23. The team, typically undefeated or close to it heading into the postseason, is 4-2 so far this season and 3-0 in league play.
