Southern Oregon sophomore David Laney has been named the Cascade Conference male runner of the week by conference officials.

Laney led the Raiders to a season-opening victory at the Washington Sundodger Open. The Raiders defeated second place Academy of Art and third-ranked Simon Fraser to claim the team title.

Laney finished fifth overall with a time of 25:02.

The Raiders are now off until Oct. 4 when they travel to Willamette.


The Southern Oregon women's soccer team scored its first victory in a 3-2 decision over Holy Names Sunday at University Field on the SOU campus.

The Raiders are now 1-5 on the season and open up Cascade Conference play Wednesday at Northwest Christian. Holy Names fell to 1-5 on the season.

SOU came out aggressive in the first half, coming away with 10 shots in the first 45 minutes.

Sophomore Kelly Clark got the Raiders on the board just before halftime, picking up a loose ball after a scramble in front of the net and tapping it in for a 1-0 SOU lead.

SOU freshman Kelly Cates broke away from the defense at the 61-minute mark to find the back of the net and the Raiders looked to be cruising with a 2-0 lead.

Holy Names scored the next two goals before Raiders freshman Katie Griffith used some nice one-on-one moves to break free and score the winning goal just before the 80-minute mark.

SOU finished with 12 shots on goal, including a team-high five from Griffith and two from Cates.
