Smallwood takes the reins of the NHS | Sports


The action for area prep volleyball fans begins in earnest at 5:30 p.m. tonight (Friday), when Taft High School in Lincoln City hosts a Lincoln County School District Jamboree that features the host Tigers and the Newport, Toledo and Waldport programs in their first game-type competition of the season.

The night marks Newport’s debut under freshman head coach Megan Smallwood, and the first steps of conference opponents 3A Taft and 2A-3 Valley Coast, Toledo and Waldport, toward improving their notes from a season ago. Eddyville Charter is set to start the season on Saturday at the Tiger Classic, hosted by Central Christian in Redmond. The Eagles 1A-3 Mountain West League rivals Siletz Valley were scheduled to open Tuesday, Aug. 30 at home in a league game against Triangle Lake.
