Douglas County Female Prep Athlete of the Week: Becca Riley
BECCA RILEYSutherlin senior
AGE: 17. SCHOOL: Sutherlin
FUTURE PLANS: Entering U.S. Air Force.
PERFORMANCE: Led the Bulldogs to second place in the Sky-Em League and the first round of the 4A soccer playoffs with her performance in goal. Had 12 saves in 2-0 loss to Gladstone. Named second-team all-Sky-Em.
OTHER INTERESTS: Softball, basketball, FFA.
QUOTABLE: “Everybody showed up and worked hard every practice to make sure that the next game would be different than the last one. And everyone saw how the seniors acted and they reacted to make this season a good one. Intensity wise, yes (the playoff game was more than she expected), the fact that it’s over is kind of surreal. It was a new experience for sure. (I’ll remember) the group of girls that the seniors played with, and that they definitely gave it their all every game.”
