Nearing the end of what has been a challenging season so far for a relatively young group, the Newberg High School girls soccer team got back in the win column Oct. 14 with a 6-1 victory at Century. Prior to that, the Tigers (3-6-3, 1-2-1 Pacific Conference) had lost two straight matches to Liberty 2-1 on Oct. 12 and Sherwood 3-1 on Oct. 7.

Newberg wraps up its season with two games: McMinnville on Oct. 19, and Forest Grove on Oct. 21. The Tigers graduate nine seniors who will be honored at the McMinnville game: Summer Melahn, Sydney Mathison, Alli Stilp, Kalani Aquipel, Greta Jonsson, Claire Rosenberger, Makayla Doty, Sydney Houck and Lily Noland.PMG PHOTO: GARY ALLEN - The Tigers will wrap up their season with matches against McMinnville on Oct. 19 and Forest Grove on Oct. 21.

The NHS boys soccer team extended its winless streak with a 3-3 tie with Century on Oct. 14. Prior to that, the Tigers (4-6-1, 0-3-1) had lost five consecutive matches.

For the boys, two games against McMinnville and Forest Grove finish the season off as well. Five Tiger seniors will be honored Oct. 21 against Forest Grove: Carter Bass, Filip Stankovic, Trevor Doman, Aloysha Kultajev and Victor Mendoza.

After a tough loss at Sherwood, the NHS volleyball team has rattled off two straight wins with two matches remaining in its regular season schedule. The Tigers (16-5, 7-3) are ranked No. 10 in the state as of Friday morning, Oct. 15, and recently beat Liberty and Century, both in three sets.

A pair of home games against McMinnville and Forest Grove await the Tigers before the postseason, where they are likely to host a home playoff game in the first round given their ranking.

Newberg cross-country competed at Sherwood on Oct. 13, running alongside the Bowmen and visiting Tualatin. The Tigers, while second in team points, had the top two finishers on the boys' side: twin juniors Zachary and Anthony Giesch finished first and second, respectively, in 15:34.99 and 15:36.97.

The girls finished third in team points and their highest-finishing runner was sophomore Dominique Eszenyi, who placed 11th in 21:13.23.

Next up for the cross-country squad is a mile relay event at NHS on Oct. 20. After that, it's on to the Pacific Conference championships on Oct. 28 at Joe Dancer Park in McMinnville. The 6A state championships are Nov. 6 in Eugene.
