First-year coach Dylan Perry (and Siuslaw High School Alumni) led the Vikings to a second-place finish in the Far West League and a state play-in home game.
The Newport Cubs will visit the Siuslaw Vikings in the play-in round of the Oregon School Activities Association Class 4A boys basketball playoffs. The game will be played 7 p.m. Friday at Glenn Butler Court, Siuslaw athletic director Chris Johnson confirmed Wednesday morning. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for students. Coast Radio (106.9 FM) will broadcast the game beginning at 6:45 p.m.
The game is a rematch of the third game of the season for the Vikings, who dropped a 62-53 decision to the Cubs at Newport last Dec. 6. The game was a missed opportunity for the young Vikings, who made only 9 of 27 free throws. Juniors Trent Reavis and Jake Hickson led the Vikings with 25 and 12 points, respectively.
Our regularly scheduled membership meeting is Monday, February 27 at 630 pm at SHS library.
Note from our Past President: We still have a vacancy for the office of president. Elections for the next school year will be coming up in June. Please think about holding an office.

Siuslaw High School Varsity Football and Strength Training Coach, Jamin Pool, gave a tour of the new weight room renovations and equipment on Tuesday, November 15th. This was a Siuslaw Athletic Booster Club (SABC) members only event.
Booster Club members:
Our members only event is this Tuesday, 11/15.
We have a time and place adjustment to better accommodate some scheduling conflicts. We will meet at 6:00 (instead of 5:30) in the Culinary Arts room (instead of the mall.) We will feature Coach Jamin Pool and appetizers by Carpe Diem at 6:00, then go to the weight room for a tour about 6:20.
Hope to see you there!
Note: There is a winter sports parent meeting at 5:30 so we are hoping parents can easily flow from one event to the other.
Booster Club Members!

The Siuslaw Athletic Booster Club wants to make Siuslaw Middle and High School students and their families aware that the Ian Foster Scholarship is available to students in need of assistance to pay for sports participation fees. Last school year, 84 Ian Foster Scholarships were provided.
Winter Sports registration is now open. Participation fees for high school sports are $100 and the Ian Foster Scholarship pays for $75 of that fee. Participation fees for middle school sports are $75 and the Ian Foster Scholarship pays for $40 of that fee. School offices and coaches have these forms available or you can go to the Siuslaw High School athletics web page http://www.siuslaw.k12.or.us/Page/141 and download it there.
“There is nothing we do as a Booster Club that is more important than funding and providing the Ian Foster Scholarship. We want every Siuslaw student at the middle and high school to participate in sports if they want to,” said Gina Castro-Brandt, SABC Past President. “The participation fee should not prevent students from being part of Siuslaw athletics. Everyone has difficult seasons in life and being part of a team can be such a positive, especially during difficult times. We want to help make it happen.”
The Ian Foster Fund was established shortly after the death of Ian Foster in the summer of 2005. With the help and support of the Foster Family, a plan was developed by the Athletic Department to set aside donated monies to be used for students who might have difficulty paying the total cost of athletic participation fees. An application process was developed requiring students to indicate their financial need. If a student is able to demonstrate significant financial need, they receive the scholarship. The Athletic Director is responsible for reviewing the applications and dispensing the money to students who meet the funding requirements.
If you would like to contribute to the Ian Foster Fund, donations are always welcome. You may send a contribution with “Ian Foster” in the memo area to: SABC, PO Box 1972, Florence, OR 97439. You can contact the Siuslaw Athletic Booster Club via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or donate online at siuslawathleticboosterclub.com .

The Booster Club received this thoughtful feedback this morning from one of our recent Auction Participants…It’s a Win/Win!
Hi Jen: Eric and I purchased the Maroon 5 package at the Siuslaw Booster Auction. This great package exceeded our expectations. We checked in at the Hotel Lucia, a beautiful boutique Hotel in downtown Portland, our room was very well comfortable and well appointed. Prior to the concert we relaxed at the Imperial Restaurant with a fabulous meal, and wonderful wine! Now to the concert, amazing! The seats were terrific, very close to the stage! Thank-You Siuslaw Boosters for a wonderful experience. We look forward to next years auction. Your business matters! Sharon Schrenk,
