Hillsboro girls softball facility

Future building - WE NEED HELP!! $$
Future building - WE NEED HELP!! $$

Football, baseball, volleyball, tennis, track and many more. The athletic program at Glenoce High school is just a small part of this school that makes it an amazing place. So what if I asked you, what could make it even better?

   Each sport at this school has their hands on on an accessible way to train and put in work to perfect their craft. When the season comes around and teams are thrown together, practicing is just the beginning of it all. The baseball program here at Glencoe already has their own hitting facility, but when April rolls around and the softball girls of Glencoe start to crawl out, where can they put in time? Varsity head coach, Jason Eastman, is putting together a plan to construct an on campus facility for the softball program here at Glencoe Softball. This is going to benefit the girls in many ways, giving them a place to practice on their own time, especially during the rainy days Oregon experiences. This is also going to benefit the school by giving more to their athletic program. This could also benefit youth and club teams who have access to the facility. A 72'x48' indoor structure will be built near the Varsity 3rd base dugout were the current net structure was donated by the Oregon Thunder softball program back in 2010.  We are excited to leave our legacy in an already amazing program.

MaxPreps All-American

Morgan who played on Oregon Thunder-Sahlfeld was awarded the Title of Fresham ALL-AMERICAN be the MaxPreps publication for her efforts on and off the field.

This is a GREAT honor for the Glencoe and Thunder Softball softball athlete.  She also starts on her High School Volleyball and Basketball team all while excelling in the class room.

This award is all done even though her High School team does not have an Indoor facility.  Her team continues to fundraise for the $40,000 goal to build a 72'x48' hitting facility.  The groups will be able to work-out during the very important Off-Season, Alumni can work-out during their Winter work-outs and the Youth of Hillsboro will have a place to work on their craft out of the Northwest weather.

Any Support would be very helpful!!!

Thunder softball star earns big-time college honor

Courtney has won some pretty prominent awards during her softball career.

This one has to rank near the top of the list.

A 2014 Glencoe graduate and currently a sophomore at Texas-El Paso, Courtney was named the Conference USA Player of the Year for softball last week. She is the first Miner to earn the award since Camilla Carrera did so in 2012.

“I am very proud of everything that Courtney accomplished this year,” third-year head coach Tobin Echo-Hawk said in a release on utepathletics.com. “I couldn’t think of a more deserving kid. She has definitely put in the work, so it is so nice to see it pay off.”

Much like in high school, Courtney is turning into a dominant offensive player at UTEP. Through May 8, the sophomore was tied for first in the conference in doubles (20); second in batting average (.421), hits (77) and total bases (120); fifth in slugging percentage (.656); sixth in runs scored (44); and eighth in on-base percentage (.443).

Another aspect of her game that carried over from her high school days is that she is a tough out, striking out just nine times in 190 at-bats.

With conference tourney stats thrown in, Courtney finished the season batting .416 with 21 doubles — a UTEP single-season record — plus 45 runs scored, 125 total bases, a .658 slugging percentage, a .438 on-base percentage and 79 hits, the latter total also establishing a new single-season school record.

In conference play, Courtney ranked first in hits (43), doubles (12) and total bases (64), and second in hitting (.467). She also had a season total of 35 RBIs and hit safely in 21 straight games from March 13 through May 7.

On the defensive side of the ball, Courntey, a middle infielder, put up 119 assists — tops all-time at UTEP. She had just seven errors for a .968 fielding percentage and started all 55 games this season.

With Courtney leading the way, an on-the-rise Miners squad went 23-32 overall, posted its first-ever winning record in C-USA (13-11), and made its first conference tournament appearance since 2010. Sixth-seeded UTEP won its first round game, 5-4 against No. 7 Florida International, last week before ending its season with a 10-4 loss to No. 4 Southern Miss.

In addition to being recognized for her on-field play, Courntey was also highlighted for her work in the classroom this year. Earlier this month she was selected to the C-USA All-Academic Team as well as the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team. She is also a two-time C-USA Academic Medalist and C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll designee.

Courtney carries a 3.92 grade-point average in health promotions.

Before her move to Texas, Courtney was named the Class 6A player of the year for the Crimson Tide in 2013 and 2014. She helped Glencoe win three consecutive Pacific Conference titles from 2011-2013 and also led the Tide to the state championship game in 2013.
