RAVENS FUTSAL WEEKLY SESSIONS ON THURSDAYS
Ravens Futsal

The second season of RAVENS FUTSAL begins on Thursday, January 16th and will be held weekly until spring break!  It's FUN AND FREE and is for all current and incoming Ridgeview High School students, both boys and girls.  Ravens Futsal takes place on Thursday evenings in the gym at Ridgeview HS. There is no coaching of any kind. YOU JUST PLAY!

Futsal is an indoor version of soccer that is played WITHOUT use of the walls and uses a smaller and heavier ball to encourage passing and control. It is a GREAT way for players to improve their technical skills during the offseason!

THURSDAYS BEGINNING JANUARY 16TH AND ENDING ON MARCH 20TH

(no session on January 30th)

  • JUNIOR VARSITY AND ALL OTHER PLAYERS - 7:00 TO 8:00 PM 
  • BOYS VARSITY* PLAYERS LAST FALL - 8:00 TO 9:00 PM

      *for any player who was a part of at least one varsity match

No forms or paperwork is needed.  Players must wear indoor soccer shoes or runners with LIGHT COLORED SOLES.

RAVENS FALL BY NARROW MARGIN IN 4A PLAYOFF MATCH

Ridgeview                      0

@ North Marion           1 

AURORA — The host Huskies scored five minutes into the second half and made that goal stand for the Class 4A play-in victory. “We probably had seven or eight chances that we could have scored," said Ridgeview assistant coach Lance Brant. “We could have been up 2-0 at half." Brant singled out forward Oscar Jaidar and defender Nate Kandle for their performances. “Our defense played outstanding the whole game," Brant said. The loss ended both a two-game winning streak and the season for the Ravens, the No. 1 team from Special District 1, who finished with an overall record of 6-5-4. North Marion, the No. 3 team from the Tri-Valley Conference, improved to 8-2-4 and advances to the first round of the state playoffs on Tuesday. - BEND BULLETIN

RAVENS SOAR IN SECOND HALF ON SENIOR DAY

Redmond                       1

Ridgeview                      6 

REDMOND — The Ravens, on their senior day, promptly fell behind after the Panthers’ Carlos Montanez netted a strike from about 40 yards away just five minutes into the match. A pair of own goals put Redmond in a 2-1 deficit before Ridgeview (6-4-4) pulled away with four goals to seal the Intermountain Hybrid win in each team’s final match of the season. Nakoda Sanders picked up two goals for the Ravens, and Oscar Jaidar and Jose Ochoa each scored once. All four came after the 57th-minute goal by Jaidar. Ridgeview is guaranteed a play-in spot in the OSAA Class 4A state playoffs by virtue of its two victories against Crook County. The Ravens will have to wait until the 4A rankings freeze next Tuesday to find out who they play. Redmond ends its regular season 0-6 in 5A Intermountain Conference play and 0-14 overall. -- BEND BULLETIN

RIDGEVIEW POSTS CLEAN SHEET AGAINST DISTRICT FOE

Crook County           0

Ridgeview                  3 

REDMOND — For 90 percent of the season, according to Ravens coach Keith Bleyer, Chase Bennett has basically been a defender. But that did not show against the Cowboys, as the senior recorded a hat trick to lift Ridgeview to a Class 4A Special District 1 win, securing the Ravens at least a play-in game for the 4A state playoffs. Raul Segoviano was credited with two assists, and Nakoda Sanders delivered the other. “We believe our playoff run started today," Bleyer said, noting the importance of defeating Crook County on Thursday as well as the Ravens’ next matchup against crosstown rival Redmond High on Tuesday, Ridgeview’s senior day. “We might as well make it a win-or-go-home mentality right now." -- Bend Bulletin

BEND - Colten Rogers assisted on the first goal and scored the second for the host Cougars in their Intermountain Hybrid win, the third consecutive victory for Mountain View (4-4-4 overall). A cross from Rogers led to Zach Emerson’s goal to open the scoring 15 minutes into the match, and nine minutes later Rogers scored unassisted for a 2-0 Cougar lead. “We were outplayed in the first half by far," said Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer. “In the second half, we brought a little more passion, a little more fight." And the Ravens (4-4-4) did manage a goal, by Eddie Vargas off a corner kick with two minutes remaining. “We played our most mature game of the season today," said Mountain View coach Chris Rogers, who added that Trace Whatley and Taylor Willman “were fantastic in their midfield roles today." -- Bend Bulletin

RAVENS OUTPLAY STORM IN SECOND HALF AND SCARE STORM
Bennett at Storm

Summit held a two-goal advantage with about 25 minutes to play. One of two things can happen with that lead, according to Storm coach Ron Kidder — get a third score and break the opponent, or allow a goal and become vulnerable to more. On Thursday night, in their 2-1 Intermountain Hybrid win against Class 4A Ridgeview under the lights on Summit High's artificial turf field, the 5A Storm found themselves in the latter situation.

After first-half goals by C.J. Fritz and Eli Warmenhoven put Summit up 2-0 in its boys soccer matchup against the Ravens, Ridgeview's Jon Irby headed in a rebound shot by Chase Bennett to make the score 2-1 with 14 minutes left in the game. The Ravens were re-energized, and it sent the Storm in a panic. “At times we were playing not to lose as opposed to win," Kidder said. “We stopped doing some of the things that got us a two-goal lead. Part of that is us getting a little panicky when they're pressing so hard. Part of it's just their increased energy. Their energy is hard to match."

For the remaining 24 minutes, Warmenhoven said the Storm strayed from their game, continuing to kick long balls in search of a third goal rather than gaining possession. Instead of taking control of the match, the junior defender said, Summit “played the clock out." “It was a competitive game," Kidder said. “It's a game that I thought we had control of. When you get up two goals, teams are susceptible at that point. They're susceptible to go one way or the other. If you get that third goal, you can typically break a team. But if they get that goal back, it re-energizes them. I think you saw that tonight."

Fritz put the Storm (7-1-2 overall) on the board in the sixth minute, corralling an Alec Fefferman pass inside the penalty box before beating Ridgeview goalkeeper Anthony Estrada with a shot into the right side of the goal. In the 29th minute, Summit set up for a direct kick from about 19 yards out. Fritz and Warmenhoven each lined up, and after Fritz ran by the ball, Warmenhoven delivered a strike into the bottom left corner to give the Storm a 2-0 advantage. “In the first half, we played simple, we were calm," said Warmenhoven, whose team outshot the Ravens 6-1 overall and 4-0 on goal in the first half. “We were able to keep the ball and weren't really pressured to go forward. We felt confident going into the game that we could score. (But) it just wasn't as intense in the first half."

In the second half, Ridgeview was kept at bay early on. But in the 26th minute, the Ravens (4-3-4) came through. Off a free kick from 50 yards away, Bennett, who Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer described as the best ball striker in Central Oregon, unleashed a blast that caromed off the crossbar. Jon Irby came streaking into the box and put a header on the rebound that found the back of the net, decreasing the Storm's lead to 2-1. “Those second balls were big for us," Bleyer said. “Sometimes those second balls come off the crossbar, Jon Irby did a great job. That's not an easy thing to do, to have that ball come back at you and head it with placement away from the keeper."

Ridgeview continued to pressure the Summit defense, but the Ravens were unable to break through again. “I think we had them under the cosh, as they say in soccer, and scared," Bleyer said. “I think Summit's the best team in Central Oregon, especially on their own field, because they know how to use the turf and movement is really solid up top. ... As it often happens, you get a goal when you're down 2-0, the match can just completely flip on its head."

Bleyer praised the Ravens' individual and collective defense and their focus for the first 64 minutes. It kept the Storm from running away with a win, and it was huge in Ridgeview's performance on Thursday night. “Defending was the key tonight," Bleyer said. “We were looking to get a goal on a counter, looking to get a goal on a set piece, and we got one. But the final 20 minutes, I thought we were the better team. We were growing in confidence as the match went on."

For the Storm, Kidder said, it is a valuable lesson they will need to embrace as the regular season winds down and as the Class 5A state playoffs await. “It's a lesson that every team needs to learn is that when you go into playoffs, or any game, when you have a team that's up against the ropes, you've got to try your hardest to finish them off," Kidder said. “If you don't, you're susceptible to things changing quickly. It's a game that you can either end up with a tie or ultimately end up losing. I hope they learn that."

BEND PULLS EVEN WITH RIDGEVIEW ON CONTROVERSIAL LATE CALL

Bend                              2

Ridgeview                    2 

REDMOND — Scott Bracci of Bend High scored off an indirect free kick in the final minutes to force a 2-2 draw with Ridgeview Tuesday at Ridgeview High School. The indirect free kick came after the Ravens were whistled for what was called a dangerous play near the goal when opposing players were fighting for a loose ball. On the indirect kick, Zach Hite passed to Bracci who cashed in from 3 yards out. “It doesn’t happen very often that (a dangerous play) gets called," said Bend coach Nils Eriksson of the indirect free kick. But Eriksson was impressed with his team’s ability to take advantage of the indirect free kick. “You think that it is a free kick so it is pretty easy to score on," Eriksson said. “But there are a lot of bodies in the box. It is not so easy." Ridgeview took an early lead when Chase Bennett put back a rebound in the 21st minute. And Bend’s Chance Flammang scored the equalizer in the 61st minute. The Ravens appeared to seize control in the 63rd minute after Ridgeview’s Raul Segoviano scored from 22 yards out on a free kick, using his off foot, according to Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer. But Bend became the aggressor in the closing minutes and the Ravens, “got a little too defensive the last 20 minutes and lost possession," Bleyer said. Still, Bleyer thought his team had played well enough to win. “It was bitterly disappointing," he said. “The kids played extremely hard and thought they deserved to win." Ridgeview (4-2-4) will travel to Summit on Thursday. Bend (2-4-4) is off until next Tuesday, when the Lava Bears play host to the Storm. -- BEND BULLETIN

RAVENS PULL AWAY FROM PANTHERS IN SECOND HALF

Ridgeview                  4

@ Redmond               0 

REDMOND — The winless Panthers played the visiting Ravens to a scoreless draw through the first half of the intracity rivalry match, but Malachi Stalberg’s goal five minutes into the second half set off a flurry of scoring for Ridgeview. Nakoda Sanders, Yalexis Brambila and Aaron Zendejas added goals for the Ravens (4-2-3) in the nonconference game. “I give Redmond a ton of credit," said Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer of the 0-6 Panthers. “They’re a young team and not very deep, but they came out to play, and they made us nervous for about 45 minutes." Bleyer praised the play of Ravens goalkeeper Dakota Curtis, who made two key saves in helping Ridgeview notch its second shutout road win of the week. -- BEND BULLETIN

Ridgeview used first half goals from Aaron Zendejas, Nakoda Sanders and Oscar Jaidar to take a 3-1 lead at the break but the 5A Cougars scored twice in a second half that saw a man sent off for both teams.

RAVENS FALL SHORT AGAINST SUMMIT

REDMOND — Alex Bowlin is a fun player to watch in the eyes of Summit coach Ron Kidder. The Storm’s junior forward is big, strong, and possesses great foot skills, according to Kidder. On a blustery Tuesday, Bowlin put those characteristics on display, scoring twice and leading Summit to a 3-1 Intermountain Hybrid boys soccer victory against Ridgeview. “He’s got decent speed for a guy his size, and he can be very clinical at times," Kidder said. “He finishes his goal-scoring opportunities at a high rate of efficiency, which you always look for in a goal scorer."

Conor Galvin put the Storm (3-1-2) on the board in the 10th minute, and Bowlin added a score eight minutes later off an assist from Cameron Ficher. In the 59th minute, and with a 2-1 lead, Bowlin struck again, this time off a feed from C.J. Fritz. The final two goals came on through balls, an area Summit excels at, according to Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer.

“We just couldn’t compete with their speed," Bleyer said. “They’re very good at sending players through the middle. You make one mistake, and you pay for it."

Raul Segoviano logged the lone goal for the Ravens (2-2-2) on what Bleyer described as a “deliciously bent ball with a little assistance from the wind" off a free kick in the 37th minute. That narrowed Ridgeview’s deficit to 2-1 heading into the half. But the equalizer never came in the second half, and Bowlin’s second goal of the day sealed the win.

“It’s like I told our boys: we’ve had two really strong outings in a row," Bleyer said, referring to Ridgeview’s 0-0 draw at Bend High last Thursday. “And we’re not going to be satisfied until we beat one of those bigger Bend schools, which is coming."

RIDGEVIEW LIKELY TO MAKE FULL MOVE UP TO CLASS 5A NEXT YEAR
OSAA Logo
Last March Redmond School District Superintendent Mike McIntosh petitioned to play down to 4A for both Redmond and Ridgeview.  In May OSAA ignored RSD's petition to "play down."  In addition, since this request student numbers at both high schools have increased significantly.   Because the cap on student numbers for 4A schools was recently lowered to 700, the Ravens and Panthers will stay at 5A.  The league will include RHS, Ridgeview and all three of Bend's high schools, beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. For this school year, RHS and Ridgeview are in the 5A/4A-1 Intermountain Hybrid Conference (which includes Bend, Summit, Mountain View, RHS, Ridgeview (as 4A) and Crook County (as 4A). There will be another OSAA hearing in October which McIntosh plans on attending and he will continue to keep us all in the loop.

RAVENS OVERCOME ADVERSITY TO POST ROAD WIN
Ridgeview Soccer Logo Above Raven.gif

Ridgeview               2

Mazama                   1

The Ravens had to endure a weather delay of over an hour following a long trek south to Klamath Falls for an important Class 4A non-conference match against Mazama.  Ridgeview showed no signs of fatigue or lack of focus, however, and headed home late on Thursday night with a 2-1 victory.  The Ravens used their effective passing game to find three great scoring opportunities in the first quarter of an hour, including a shot off the post by Raul Segoviano.  The senior co-captain opened the scoring midway through the opening half after sophomore Nakoda Sanders split a pair of Vikings defenders and drew a free kick just outside the 18 yard box.  Segoviano's shot was too powerful for the Mazama goalkeeper and found the back of the net.  Ridgeview added a second goal late in the first half on a drawn-up corner kick that Segoviano sent back to center back Chase Bennett, who put a prep touch on the ball and then lashed it with a curve into the upper corner.  Ridgeview then played the second half without Segoviano, who left the game with a knee injury, but the efforts of the back four led by Bennett and T.J. Smith, kept the home side at bay until the 76th minute when Mazama scored a counter attack goal to pull within one.  Malachi Stalberg spent the final 15 minutes of the match tormenting the right side of Mazama's defense and came close to scoring multiple times.  Ridgeview is undefeated on the young season (1-0-1) and hosts La Pine next Thursday.

RAVENS RALLY BACK TO EARN DRAW IN OPENER

Cottage Grove               3

The Ravens rallied from two goals down in the second half to earn a draw against their Sky-Em visitors. Ryan Quick scored all three goals in the first half for Cottage Grove, but Ridgeview found the equalizer in stoppage time through Yalexis Brambila, who floated a shot in off the far post. Jonathan Irby and Chase Bennett scored the first two goals for the Ravens (0-1-0), who travel to Mazama on Thursday.

SEGOVIANO SPEEDS ACROSS FINISH LINE
Varsity at Ravens Run
Nearly ten Ridgeview boys soccer players, from both the varsity and JV squads, took part in the first ever Ravens Run, a 5K held on August 31st to benefit the Raven Boosters club.  The race was held on a 3.1 mile course around the campus of the high school and ended with a lap on the stadium track.  The field included many of Ridgeview's cross country runners and members of the school's staff.  The first soccer player across the finish line was varsity senior co-captain Raul Segoviano, in a quick time of just 21 minutes!  Other players who took part included Nakoda Sanders, Malachi Stalberg, Jon Irby, David Edwards, Ryan Elliston and Tristan Steen.

TRIO OF RAVENS TRAIN WITH OREGON INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Trio Trains OIT
A trio of current Ridgeview high school seniors, Jose Ochoa, Ruben Juaregui and Nate Kandle recently traveled south to Klamath Falls to test their abilities by training with a college squad.  A relationship was cultivated when the Oregon Institute of Technology's mens soccer coach Matt Munhall was invited to attend a 'Ravens FC' match in the Capital Cup in Salem in June.  The players recently 'returned the favor' by accepting an invitation from Munhall and headed south to spend a day training with the OIT squad.  The Ravens were also given a chance to watch Oregon Tech play a pre-season match.

CENTRAL OREGON BOYS PREP SOCCER PREVIEW
Sisters Practice

BEND BULLETIN - AUGUST 27, 2013 - Mark Morical

After a disappointing finish to the 2012 boys soccer season, Sisters is ready to make a state championship run in 2013. The Outlaws fell to Ontario 2-1 in overtime in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs last year after star midfielder Jake McAllister received two yellow cards and Sisters was forced to play most of the second half without him. McAllister, now a senior, and Evan Rickards, a senior forward, are back to lead the Outlaws this season. “I think we were just as good as a lot of the teams that went farther," says Sisters coach Rob Jensen. “We had some good possibility there, but that's how the ball bounces sometimes."

But Jensen says this year's side is shooting for a state championship appearance. The return of McAllister and Rickards, who combined for 28 goals last season, make that a realistic goal. McAllister was a first team all-state player last season and the Sky-Em League player of the year, while Rickards made the all-state second team. “The attitude of our players, and the work ethic, all of that type of stuff is right there," Jensen says. “And I think (a state championship) is one of our goals. You've got to win league and get some luck in the playoffs, but I think we're definitely going to make a run at that. We want to be playing on the last day."

Jensen calls 2013 a “reloading year" and says his team has the potential to be better than last season. He says the Outlaws — who were 10-0 in the Sky-Em League last season — are again the favorites to win their league, though they could face stiff competition from Cottage Grove and Junction City. Other players who will have big roles this season, according to Jensen, include junior Justin Harrer, who will see time at both sweeper and striker, and sophomore midfielders Jadon Bachtold and Colton Manhalter. “They're crafty, so they'll distribute well for us in the middle there," Jensen says of Bachtold and Manhalter. Senior Jardon Weems will lead the Outlaw defense, Jensen says.

Elsewhere in Central Oregon boys soccer, the Intermountain Conference race will likely once again come down to Summit and Mountain View. The Storm won the league last season, but the Cougars defeated their crosstown rival 1-0 in a state semifinal before falling to Woodburn 2-1 in the Class 5A state championship game.

Mountain View coach Chris Rogers says this will be a rebuilding year for his team, which lost seven seniors from the 2012 squad. Still, Rogers likes the Cougars' chances of being competitive behind a core of three returning players: sophomore midfielder Taylor Willman, sophomore forward Zach Emerson, and junior midfielder Zel Rey. “Those three coming back give us a very dynamic, attacking advantage," Rogers says. “In any game we're in we should be able to score goals. We lost a lot of senior leadership, but we still have some players who can definitely still ball. We just have to build around what we know works, and find the pieces to fill some holes, like we did last year."

Summit's situation is similar to Mountain View's. The Storm graduated nine seniors from last year's team, seven of whom were starters. Summit hopes to reload behind the play of senior defender Cameron Weaver, junior defender Eli Warmenhoven, and midfielders Alex Arnis, a senior, and Alex Bowlin, a junior. Storm coach Ron Kidder says he thinks the defending IMC champions can have another strong year after the Cougars “got the last laugh" last season by beating them in the semifinals. That marked the second straight year Summit was eliminated in the state semifinals. “I think we're knocking on the door (of a state championship)," Kidder says. “It's just getting over the hump. Some of these kids have been in both of those (semifinal) games. I think as a program we've tasted success, and I think they want more. They're still hungry, for sure."

A look at the Central Oregon teams for the upcoming season:

Class 5A

Bend

Head coach: Nils Eriksson (18th season) 2012 record: 5-8-1 overall, 2-4 IMC (third); lost in Class 5A play-in game

Outlook: The Lava Bears hope to improve this season behind a core of juniors and sophomores. Top returners include senior goalkeeper Tony Watters and juniors Scott Bracci, Sam Nelson and Zach Hite. “I think we'll be a little more competitive than last year," Eriksson says. “We had a lot of one-goal losses last year."

Mountain View

Head coach: Chris Rogers (fourth season) 2012 record: 11-5-2 overall, 4-1-1 IMC (second); lost in Class 5A state championship

Outlook: The Cougars face a rebuilding year but will still look to challenge Summit for the top spot in the Intermountain Conference. Midfielders Taylor Willman and Zel Rey and forward Zach Emerson will lead the way.

Summit

Head coach: Ron Kidder (ninth season) 2012 record: 12-2-3 overall, 5-0-1 IMC (first); lost in Class 5A semifinals

Outlook: After reaching the state semifinals the past two seasons, the Storm are hoping to take the next step. Summit lost nine seniors but should find leadership from seniors Alex Arnis and Cameron Weaver as well as juniors Eli Warmenhoven and Alex Bowlin.

Redmond

Head coach: Ansel Evans (second season) 2012 record: 3-11 overall, 0-6 IMC (sixth)

Outlook: A strong returning sophomore class will lead the Panthers as they look to improve from last season. Senior midfielder Daniel Lopez was all-IMC honorable mention last season. “Our program continues trying to rebuild after the opening of the new high school in Redmond," Evans says, referencing Ridgeview. “We are welcoming players new to soccer to try and fill a JV team, as this will help us in our future."

Class 4A

Sisters

Head coach: Ron Jensen (seventh season) 2012 record: 12-3 overall, 8-0 Sky-Em (first); lost in first round of Class 4A state playoffs

Outlook: The Outlaws return two all-state players in midfielder Jake McAllister and forward Evan Rickards. After a disappointing finish to the 2012 season, Sisters has its eyes on a state championship run in 2013.

Ridgeview

Head coach: Keith Bleyer (second season) 2012 record: 5-7-1 overall, 2-0 Special District 1 (first); lost in Class 4A play-in game

Outlook: Offseason work should help the Ravens improve this season. Without a senior class last year, Ridgeview has eight seniors on its roster now. Senior leaders include Raul Segoviano, Nate Kandle and Chase Bennett. “I think we can do more than just make the playoffs," Bleyer says. “We want to upset a team or two, and we've got the boys to do it."

Crook County

Head coach: Joel Carillo (fourth season, second tenure) 2012 record: 2-9 overall, 0-2 Special District 1 (second)

Outlook: Zane Abrams is the only senior on the Cowboys' roster. Abrams will look to lead a very young Crook County team. “They're looking better than last year," Carillo says. “They're young, but they have a lot of skills."

Madras

Head coach: Clark Jones (fifth season) 2012 record: 3-11 overall, 3-7 TVC (fourth)

Outlook: Junior midfielders Mario Urieta and Oved Felix will lead the White Buffaloes as they look to improve from last season. “We're slowly getting our numbers up to where they need to be and the intensity is getting better," Jones says. “Several players have grown up over the year and are stepping up."

La Pine

Head coach: Sam Ramirez (second season) 2012 record: 3-4-1 overall (played a JV schedule)

Outlook: Seniors Zach Smith and Sam Wieber accounted for about 90 percent of the Hawks' goals last season, according to Ramirez. They will lead La Pine as it fields it first varsity team. “It's still a young team, but we have a couple seniors," Ramirez says. “They're mostly freshman and sophomores. The kids are ready for improvement."

Class 3A/2A/1A

Culver

Head coach: Tom Kirk (ninth season) 2012 record: 3-8-3 overall, 1-6-1 Special District 4 (fourth)

Outlook: The team is still learning to play together behind the leadership of two returning seniors: defender Arturo Vasquez and midfielder Isaias Gutierrez. “We have to figure out how to trust each other and how to play together," Kirk says. “We need to get good team play, move the ball quickly, and share the ball."

Central Christian

Head coach: Drew Roberts (first season) 2012 record: 1-7-2 overall, 0-7-1 Special District 4 (fifth)

Outlook: Returning seniors Garrett Simpson and Caleb Stewart will lead the Tigers as they play an independent schedule. “We're trying to get a few extra players," Roberts says. “With our new independent schedule, we can play some local JV teams."

RIDGEVIEW BOYS SOCCER 2013 ROSTERS

All of the boys who have participated in daily double tryouts, our summer training and Ravens FC tournaments, Ravens Futsal over the winter and the optional P.A.S.S. and iSoccer sessions during the spring should be applauded for their efforts!  The future is very bright for RIDGEVIEW BOYS SOCCER!  There is a spot for EVERY player who wants to be a part of this program.  Just remember that your spot in this program is always a privilege and never a right.  It has been been EARNED and you must continue to DO THE WORK to keep your spot as the season progresses!  There is always the possibility for player movement during the season, so keep striving and improving.

Players in RED and BLUE are on two rosters and should expect to 'swing' for between one and four MATCHES this season.  No player will play in more than fourteen total matches.

CLICK THE LINK BELOW (WHICH WILL BE POSTED AT 1PM) FOR THE ROSTERS!  GO RAVENS!

INFORMATION FOR PLAYERS AHEAD OF ROSTER POSTING
Mal and TJ Training

The rosters for the THREE Ridgeview HS Boys Soccer teams will be posted before 1pm today (Thursday 8/22).  Ahead of that post you should all understand how we anticipate approaching our second season together and as our program grows.  It should allow for all players to receive ample playing time in matches and experience varying levels of competition.

We do expect our pool of players to grow over the next few weeks, with students who were unable to attend this week's tryouts or are coming in late for various reasons (new students to the RSD, foreign exchange, etc.)  As that happens the rosters may change a bit but for now some players will see their names on TWO DIFFERENT ROSTERS.  This means we enter the season with the expectation that you will 'swing' at least once (or up to three or four times) and play for a different team (varsity, junior varsity or JV2) at some point this fall.  You will know well ahead of time which matches you will be playing in.

No player will play in more than FOURTEEN matches this season (OSAA maximum) but you can all plan on getting that much match action!  The other option was to create two LARGE teams but that reduces playing time for all and is counter to player development.

All the players on the VARSITY roster will train with that group.  All players on only the JV or JV2 rosters will train in a combined JV 'academy.' 

For those who are placed on two rosters, when we gather for team pictures this afternoon (Thursday 8/22) at 3pm you will pose with BOTH teams!

ROSTERS WILL BE POSTED BY 1PM.  GO RAVENS!

The RAVENS SOCCER CAR WASH will take place in the parking lot of AIC Insurance which is right next to the GAS STATION AT FRED MEYER in Redmond.

It's located right HERE: http://goo.gl/maps/4Svla

The Ravens have been working hard all summer to get ready for their 2013 season! The boys have already traveled to one club tournament in Salem this summer, held the first two of three scrimmages with Sisters HS and will travel to the Mt. Hood Challenge in Portland next month. We have kept the travel costs down for our players by fundraising. Due to the associated expense, more than half of our players have NEVER had the opportunity to travel to a summer tournament before.

We will have THREE teams this fall and our new players obviously need uniforms. You would be surprised how much two pairs of socks for 50 boys costs. (Try nearly $2,000.)

RAVENS FC MAKES CLUB DEBUT IN CAPITAL CUP
CC Huddle.jpg

 

The Ridgeview High School boys soccer program took a major step forward in its 'soccer evolution' by competing in a 'club' event for the first time at the Capital Cup in Salem during the weekend of June 28-30.  'Ravens FC' competed in a nine team HS bracket and played four matches over three days.  The team was comprised of returning varsity and JV players and incoming freshmen. nearly half of whom had never played in a club tournament before.

Ravens FC began the weekend with a 2-nil loss to a club team from Corvallis, despite having more possession, connecting more passes and  having more scoring opportunities than their opponent over the 60 minutes on a hot day at Corban University.  The Ravens bounced back to go undefeated in a pair of matches on Saturday, including a 2-2 draw to a side from Albany at Willamette University followed by a dramatic 3-2 win over a Hermiston side in the 'Blue' bracket semifinals.  Ridgeview was down 2-1 with less than 5 minutes to play on a steamy pitch at South Salem HS but scored twice in the dying moments to snag a victory.  On Sunday morning Ravens FC met a side from Thelo United (Milwaukie) in a consolation final and fell 2-nil.

The primary objectives for participating in the event, player development in all technical and tactical areas and team bonding, were clearly met over a fun weekend for all!  Ravens FC will compete again in the Mt. Hood Challenge in the Portland area on the weekend of August 9-11.

FIFTEEN TO FITNESS PROGRAM FOR SUMMER 2013
Ridgeview Soccer Logo Above Raven.gif

Ravens soccer players must be making progress ON THEIR OWN or in SMALLER GROUPS out of normal training time to increase their fitness level ahead of the fall 2013 season. The level of fitness required for each program, varsity and junior varsity, is made very clear and simple.

While it is rare that a player can 'meet the marks' of all our fitness challenges on a regular basis, he is expected to hit the desired target time or number in multiple exercises with frequency.

Just below is the link to the Ridgeview Soccer 15 to Fitness calendar (it is advised players do NOT wait until August 5th to get started).  The instructions and video demos and the target levels for our varsity and JV players are also found on the P.A.S.S. page of the web site.

RIDGEVIEW PLAYERS TO PARTICIPATE IN TWO SUMMER TOURNAMENTS
Mt Hood Challenge

PLAY FOR 'RAVENS FC' THIS SUMMER!

We are excited to announce that Ridgeview players will participate in a pair of 'club' soccer tournaments this Summer.  The first will be the Capital Cup in Salem from June 28-30and the second will be the Mt. Hood Challenge in Portland on August 9-11!

The best news is how affordable it will be for the players who want to participate!  The cost per player, for BOTH tournaments and including lodging (3-4 per hotel room) will be less than $160.  (That total is approximate and does not include food and a few bucks for gas.)  It does not include any fundraising discounts and our goal will be to get that number even lower.

ALL PLAYERS WHO ATTEND AT LEAST ONE OF THE TOURNAMENTS MUST PARTICIPATE IN NEARLY ALL TEAM FUNDRAISING EFFORTS BETWEEN NOW AND THEN. PLAYING TIME WILL BE EARNED BY REGULAR ATTENDANCE AT SUMMER TRAINING SESSIONS AND SCRIMMAGES IN THE ‘RUN UP’ TO EACH EVENT. THE DEADLINE TO INFORM KEITH REGARDING YOUR AVAILABILITY IS APRIL 1ST. YOU CAN CHOOSE TO ATTEND ONE OR BOTH TOURNAMENTS. AN 18 PLAYER ROSTER WILL BE CREATED BY COACH BLEYER FOR EACH EVENT NO LATER THAN MAY 1ST. IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND BUT THEN MUST BACK OUT PLEASE LET KEITH KNOW RIGHT AWAY!

Coach Bleyer will travel with the team but he will need at least two other adults to make the trip to help supervise and chaperone. (One of those two might be Assistant Coach Myers and/or Assistant Coach Larson.) Please let me know if you have an adult that wants to accompany us!

The objective for participation in these events is for further player development, team shape and tactics and squad chemistry. All players will receive playing time. Participation in these events does not guarantee placement on the Varsity or even JV squads come the fall. However, regularly participating in any off-season program (Ravens Futsal/iSoccer/PASS/summer sessions) makes players better and therefore….



Thursday, February 28
SCRIMMAGE VS CLUB TEAM ON SUNDAY MARCH 17
A scrimmage against a Bend-based club team will take place on Sunday, March 17th from 2:30-4pm at Ridgeview HS!  It will replace the planned iSoccer session for that afternoon.  Please let Keith know if you are interested and available to play!  He will also be sending out an e-mail and text messages regarding this event.  NO COACHING OF THE RIDGEVEW TEAM WILL TAKE PLACE DURING THIS SCRIMMAGE.  Coach Bleyer will not event be present (per OSAA laws).

Ridgeview Soccer Logo.gif

OUR P.A.S.S. AND iSOCCER SESSIONS START ON SUNDAY (1/27)! We will go from 4-5pm on Sundays (before Ravens Futsal from 5-7) and from 3-4pm on Thursdays at Ridgeview (either in the gym, commons out on the field). As I mentioned to you, it is very important that you attend at least one session per week. We will alternate between PASS and iSoccer on a weekly basis. I can't coach you BUT ATTENDANCE WILL BE TAKEN! Show me your commitment! The group sessions will be led by seniors-to-be Nate, Raul, and/or Chase.

I expect ALL PLAYERS to have posted their own scores on iSoccer assignment #1 (toe taps/foundation/juggling with feet and head) by Sunday, February 3rd.

Lastly, as I mentioned and I believe made very clear in our meetings this week, we will have a lot of good players who plan on being a part of what we do in year two. Therefore, you must prove your commitment to Ridgeview Soccer long before August is here if you plan on being an important part of the program in the fall of 2013!

No, I am not asking too much of you. We are talking about one or two hours a week and some technical work on your own... or a LOT of technical work on your own...

GO RAVENS!

RAVENS FUTSAL COMING IN DECEMBER
Futsal

All Ridgeview students, boys and girls, are invited to play in the FUN AND FREE RAVENS FUTSAL league this winter!  Games will take place on Sunday afternoons and evenings in the gym at Ridgeview HS.  Teams will be created (by Keith Bleyer) and schedules will be generated.  There is no coaching of any kind.  YOU JUST PLAY!  There will be at least two 'seasons,' so teams will change and players may come and go between the seasons if they like.

FUTSAL is an indoor version of soccer that is played WITHOUT walls and uses a smaller and heavier ball to encourage passing and control.  It is a GREAT way for players to improve their technical skills during the offseason!

There will be an informational meeting on Thursday, December 15th at 2:40 in the TV classroom at Ridgeview!  For more information keep checking the RAVENS FUTSAL page of this web site!

FOUR RAVENS EARN ALL-IMC HONORS

Ridgeview junior Raul Segoviano was named to the 2012 All-Intermountain Conference first team following the Ravens' first ever varsity soccer season.  The co-captain scored in multiple matches, including a hat trick at Crook County and two goals in a 3-1 victory over his former team, the Redmond Panthers.

Segoviano's co-captain, Nate Kandle, was named to the All-IMC second team and he is joined on that squad by Ridgeview defender Chase Bennett.  Kandle and Bennett, also both juniors, made significant contributions to the squad on both ends of the field in 2012.

The Ravens' first choice varsity goalkeeper, Dakota Curtis, was an All-IMC honorable mention selection.

ONTARIO — The Ravens fell behind 2-0 17 minutes into their Class 4A play-in match against the host Tigers, but a penalty kick by Raul Segoviano narrowed the deficit to 2-1 in the 22nd minute. Nakoda Sanders and Ruben Jauregui each had chances to even things up, but their shots missed the mark and the Ravens trailed 2-1 at the half. The Tigers scored less than a minute into the second half and added another goal later on to make it 4-1 before Sanders’ goal in the 72nd minute pulled Ridgeview to within two goals. Ontario scored again in the final minute to seal the victory. The Ravens’ inaugural season ended with a 5-7-1 record.

REDMOND — Zachary Dyck netted a pair of goals in the closing six minutes of the Ravens’ Intermountain Hybrid contest at Redmond High, including a rebound score within the final 10 seconds, according to Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer’s estimation, to propel the Ravens to victory. Dyck finished with three goals, and Vladimir Jonas was credited with an assist. Daniel Najera led the Panthers with two goals, one of them assisted by Miseal Correa.

 PRINEVILLE — Raul Segoviano racked up three goals and an assist, as the Ravens used three scores in the second half to get by the Cowboys in a Class 4A Special District 1 showdown. Zachary Dyck logged a goal for Ridgeview. Highlighting his shutout performance in goal, Dakota Curtis made a key save early in the second half, when Crook County’s penalty kick was knocked away by Curtis with the Ravens leading 2-0. That, Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer said, “deflated" the Cowboys’ attack. Ridgeview (2-0 SD1, 4-6-1 overall) wraps up its regular season with a road game against Redmond High next Thursday. Crook County (0-2 SD1, 2-9 overall) plays host to the Summit JV on Wednesday.

Wyatt Lay and Diego Martinez each recorded two goals for Mountain View, which also saw Takuro Nihei, Bryce Tipton and Alex Pelayo pick up one goal apiece. John Nieto finished with two assists, and Mountain View coach Chris Rogers commended the play of Taylor Willman, who, Rogers said, did an “exceptional" job directing the offense.

REDMOND — Two games remain on its Class 5A Intermountain Conference boys soccer schedule, and Summit has its eyes on the ultimate prize. With a 3-0 Intermountain Hybrid win against Ridgeview on Thursday, the Storm are in a good position to finish strong. “We know what we’re playing for: an IMC championship," said Summit coach Ron Kidder, whose team improved to 9-1-1 overall. “It’s important to these guys. They want to get Summit another championship."  Glenn Sherman led the way for the Storm with two goals in their win over the Ravens. Dan Maunder collected a score of his own off a corner kick.

“We couldn’t cope with their speed," Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer said. “They have incredible pace." The Class 4A Ravens dropped to 3-5-1 overall with their second competitive loss of the week to a 5A team. “We’re in these matches," insisted Bleyer, whose team lost 2-0 at 5A Bend High on Tuesday. Both clubs get back to work on Tuesday, with Summit entertaining Bend High and Ridgeview welcoming Mountain View.

Raul Segoviano scored next with a left footed shot that curled around the Panthers goalkeeper into the side netting at the far post. Segoviano then struck again with his head three minutes before the half on a perfectly placed left footed cross from his co-captain Kandle. The Ravens held off a Redmond squad determined to rally after the break. Ridgeview has won two straight matches and improves to 3-3-1 on the season.

REDMOND — Within a span of 20 minutes, the Ravens’ Raul Segoviano put on a “one-man show," as described by Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer. Segoviano racked up three goals during that time frame, propelling the Ravens to a 4-0 lead at the half and eventually a Class 4A Special District 1 victory. “We just really put our foot on the pedal and didn’t really look back," Bleyer said. Freshman Nakoda Sanders recorded a goal in the 12th minute, which put the Ravens in front and set the tone for Segoviano’s “clinic of finishing," according to Bleyer. Both squads return to Intermountain Hybrid action Thursday, with Ridgeview (1-0 SD1, 2-3-1 overall) entertaining Redmond High and Crook County (0-1 SD1, 1-6 overall) hosting Summit.

RAVENS FALL TO 5A POWER SUMMIT ON THE ROAD

RIDGEVIEW           0 

BEND — Summit’s Michael Wilson posted a hat trick against visiting Ridgeview on Tuesday as the Storm improved to 4-1-1 overall in boys soccer with a 5-0 victory over the Ravens. “He’s always a threat to score, where ever the ball is on the field," Summit coach Ron Kidder said about the speedy Wilson, the reigning Class 5A 400-meter dash champion. “He’s an incredible weapon to have because he’s incredibly fast."

Nigel Jones put the Storm ahead 1-0 in the eighth minute with a blast from 30 yards out. “It was a screamer," Kidder said. “One of the best shots I’ve ever seen from him." Wilson took over after Jones’ score, posting goals in the 12th and 20th minutes to give Summit a 3-0 lead at halftime.

After the break, Wilson made it 4-0 with a goal in the 42nd minute before Alex Bowlin recorded the game’s final goal in the 45th minute, making the score 5-0. “That’s a team that will be playing for the 5A crown, or at least that’s the kind of talent they have," Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer said.

Bowlin, Jacob Fritz, Dan Maunder and Eli Warmenhoven all ended the Intermountain Hybrid match with an assist for the Storm.

Bleyer noted the play of his two center defenders, Chase Bennett and Hector Ortega. “They’ve both had phenomenal years so far," the Ravens’ coach said about his two juniors standouts. “They’re the reason we’ve been able to keep scores down."

Ridgeview (1-2-1 overall) continues Intermountain Hybrid play on Thursday with a road match at Mountain View. Summit plays at Bend High the same day.

RIDGEVIEW     0 

REDMOND — The Lava Bears used two first-half goals to separate themselves from Ridgeview in what Bend High coach Nils Eriksson called a “good team effort" en route to a 3-0 nonconference boys soccer win on Thursday. “We have things to work on, and that stands out," Eriksson said. “That's a good thing to see, what we need to work on. It was a good test because I thought Ridgeview played really well." Sophomore Scott Bracci got Bend (1-4-1) rolling with a 30-yard strike that Eriksson said “may have surprised the goalkeeper." “There was 20-25 mile an hour winds from one side to the other," Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer said. “Any shot that was within 40 or 50 yards was doing funny things."

Senior Steven Dougherty collected a pair of goals — one at the end of the first half and another midway through the second — to put the game away and deal Ridgeview (1-1-1) its first loss of the season. Sophomore Dakota Curtis registered nine saves to lead the Ravens. “We could've been a little more precise in our passing, and I think we gave up the ball a few too many times," Eriksson said. “It wasn't like frustrating or anything. We just need to do better than that as we go in to play Summit and Mountain View. We're working and going in the right direction, that's for sure."

Both teams pick things up on Tuesday, with Bend traveling to Prineville for an Intermountain Hybrid matchup with Crook County and Ridgeview visiting Summit in a nonconference contest. “For a brand new (Class) 4A school, it's a crucible we're going through during this nine-day span through the jungle," Bleyer said of the next two games against Summit and Mountain View. “We're just going to hack our way out the other side."

MAZAMA              1

In their first stiff test of their first ever season the Ravens drew 1-all at home on Thursday to the Mazama Vikings, a 4A school from Klamath Falls.  The visitors struck first, in the 15th minute, from just 6 yards out after Ridgeview goalkeeper Dakota Curtis made a save but the rebound bounced directly out to the Vikings.

Challenged by their coach to play their best soccer after the first goal is scored, the Ravens rose to the challenge and began to control the match from that point forward.  In the 39th minute a nice passing combination through the middle of the field culminated with Zachary Dyck setting up Malachi Stalberg and the Ridgeview freshman scored his third goal of the young season with a shot that flew just under the crossbar.

The second half saw scoring opportunities for both sides, with Ridgeview using a passing game that led to many crosses and the Vikings utilizing their pace up top.  Curtis capped his excellent afternoon in goal for the home team with a point blake save in the dying moments to preserve the draw.

The Ravens (1-0-1) are off until September 20th when they host Bend High School.

Mountain View out to repeat as IMC champions for third straight year

By Grant Lucas / The Bulletin 

For the past two years, boys soccer in the Intermountain Conference has been controlled by Mountain View.

Since 2010, the Cougars have run the Class 5A IMC table, compiling perfect 4-0 records in league play and claiming back-to-back conference championships.

Adding a third straight IMC title will be more challenging this year, according to Mountain View coach Chris Rogers, considering the Cougars sent off seven seniors last season and lost Logan Riemhofer to the Portland Timbers Youth Academy and Hudson Newell to football. Both were all-league players last year as juniors.

“It’s definitely a rebuilding year," Rogers says. “There was a group that was together a long time that came to fruition last year, and that group’s gone, so it’s pretty much all new faces."

Still, Mountain View returns a pair of 2011 all-IMC selections in senior Wyatt Lay and junior Zel Rey, who last season helped the Cougars outscore opponents 41-19.

“We’re going to be very technical and very skilled, but we’re also young," Rogers says. “This year we’re going to be more of a possession (team). We’re going to keep the ball a lot more, and we’re going to look to counter on teams."

According to Rogers, the IMC is up for grabs this season with Mountain View rebuilding and opposing teams constantly improving, most notably Summit.

The Storm went 9-5-3 last season and advanced to the 5A state semifinals for the first time in school history.

“I think there is a lot of excitement this year because of (our returning players)," says Summit coach Ron Kidder, who welcomes back five all-leaguers in seniors Jacob Fritz, Michael Wilson, Dan Maunder and Hayes Joyner, and junior Cameron Weaver. “I think we’re more optimistic about our chances to compete with any team in the state this year."

Bend returns eight players — including all-league selections Scott Bracci (midfielder) and Tony Watters (goalkeeper) — from last year’s team that went 3-10-1.

“It’s going to be fun to see how the young guys fit in with the older guys and ... how we match up with some of the other teams," says Lava Bear coach Nils Eriksson, who is entering his 17th season at the helm at Bend High. “There’s no doubt about it. I’m pretty cautious because we’ve got a ways to go."

Also vying to dethrone Mountain View, and playing at the Class 5A level for the first time since the Oregon School Activities Association expanded to six classifications in 2006, is Redmond, which recorded a 5-9-1 record last season.

“I would assume that it’s going to be a challenging, rebuilding year," says first-year coach Ansel Evans, who expects to rely on seniors Daniel Najera and Miseal Correa this fall. “I just want to be able to walk off each match knowing that we played as well as we could play."

New in Redmond, Ridgeview High is preparing for its debut as a member of the Intermountain Hybrid conference and 4A Special District 1 alongside Crook County. Led by lone senior Nick Aschenbrenner — he attends the Redmond Proficiency Academy — as well as juniors Nate Kandle, Chase Bennett and Raul Segoviano, the Ravens look to make an early statement.

“I think we’re going to be really strong through the spine," Ridgeview coach Keith Bleyer says. “All three of those (juniors) are experienced in soccer."

Also at the 4A level, Sisters aims for not just a third straight Sky-Em League title, but to challenge for a state championship. With seven starters among 11 returning players, including reigning Sky-Em player of the year Jake McAllister, a deep playoff run does not seem too lofty a target for the Outlaws.

“We’ve got a solid core of guys that have seen action, that are confident and hungry," Sisters coach Rob Jensen says. “I think they see themselves as a confident league champion-returning team that knows how to win."

While juniors McAllister and Evan Rickards return for firepower — the two combined for nearly half of the Outlaws’ goals last season — senior Drew Corrigan returns as goalkeeper after recording more than 120 saves a year ago.

Following a fourth-place finish in the Tri-Valley Conference last year, Madras is looking to make a run at the TVC title for the second time in three years. The White Buffaloes return more than half their roster from last season, including all-league players Carlos Garcia, Florencio Aguilar and Mario Urieta.

“I like what I see," says Madras coach Clark Jones. “There’s some players that have developed. I think I have probably nine out of 11 really quality players that have experience that I can put on the field."

Heading into the year as reigning Special District 1 champion, Crook County is eager to put together a playoff run. The Cowboys, however, lost six seniors and all five of their all-league players after going 3-8-1 in 2011.

“For now, we have a pretty good, young team, but they will compete," Crook County coach Joel Carillo says.

In La Pine, the school will field a boys soccer team for the first time in school history. The Hawks are expected to play an independent schedule in their inaugural season.

At the Class 3A/2A/1A level, Culver will lean on all-league returners Gerson Gonzalez, Misael Morales and Arturo Vasquez. The Bulldogs hope to lead their program back to the playoffs for the second time in three years. Redmond’s Central Christian could also be a postseason threat after the Tigers went 5-6-1 a year ago.

“Each day we get closer," says Ridgeview’s Bleyer, “I get more excited, and perhaps a little bit more nervous as well."

BUILDING FROM THE GROUND UP

Prep sports start in Central Oregon

Local teams, including Redmond's Ridgeview High, begin practice soon

By Beau Eastes / The Bulletin 

Building a program from the ground up this fall, Ridgeview High boys soccer coach Keith Bleyer is certain about only one thing heading into the Ravens' inaugural season.

“We'll look good," jokes Bleyer, a former television sports broadcaster who will also teach video production at the new Redmond high school. “The uniforms are nice. The grass is completely set and the goals are being assembled as we speak. The important stuff, though, has yet to begin."

Fall sports practice — the important stuff — officially starts Monday around the state, and Central Oregon athletes are in no short supply of storylines. Mountain View football is coming off its first state championship, Summit boys and girls cross-country looks to continue its annual success with a new head coach, and Crook County volleyball is eyeing its seventh straight state title, a feat unmatched by any volleyball program in the state.

Locally, though, no development figures to make a bigger ripple than the opening of Ridgeview, which will field a full lineup of varsity teams in its first year of existence. The addition of the Ravens, who will play at the 4A classification this school year and next, gives area teams another local opponent to schedule and allows Redmond High to move back to Class 5A (from 6A) this season with longtime rivals Bend, Mountain View and Summit.

“In football, our message with not having any seniors is that this junior group has two shots at a senior year," says Andy Codding, Ridgeview's athletic director and head football coach. “It's a 15-month senior year. These kids have the opportunity now to build a foundation and begin a legacy with the school."

Codding's squad hosts Medicine Hat High from Alberta, Canada, on Friday, Aug. 31, in what will be the school's first Oregon School Activities Association-sanctioned contest, while volleyball, boys and girls soccer and cross-country all start their seasons after the Labor Day weekend.

“It's been exciting and daunting simultaneously," Bleyer says about the ins and outs of staring a new program. “We're creating a program that will be built to last for years and years to come."

At Mountain View in Bend, first-year head football coach Brian Crum takes over a program that is coming off its best season ever. The Cougars lose 18 starters from their 2011 state championship team, but they return a pair of all-state honorees in receiver/safety John Carroll and offensive tackle Chad Bach, among others.

“Repeat," says Crum, who took over at Mountain View after Steve Turner resigned in the offseason to accept the head coaching job at Class 4A Cascade High in Turner, about his team's goal for 2012. “We feel like we've got the kids. When you work hard, play hard and play smart, good things happen."

Mountain View has been one of the premier 5A football programs in the state the past five years, compiling an overall record of 51-8 during that span and advancing to the state semifinals or better three times.

“There's a ton of kids that left, but there's a ton of kids in this program," says Crum, who came to Mountain View as an assistant coach in 2008. “Our kids know what it means to work hard, compete and win over a long season. ... We're not changing much schematic-wise. Every year we get a little bit better at what we do."

On the other side of Bend, Summit aims to continue its recent cross-country dominance — the Storm have won four consecutive Class 5A girls state titles and also are the reigning 5A boys state champions — after Bend-La Pine Schools chose not to renew the coaching contract of Dave Clark. Carol McLatchie, who has helped coach the Summit track team's distance runners in the past, replaces Clark, who had coached cross-country at Summit since the school opened in 2001.

“We've got a lot of younger talent," McLatchie says about her girls team, which graduated five of its top seven runners from a year ago but brings back sophomore Piper McDonald, who placed third at state. “Some kids are probably thinking, 'Yikes, what am I going to do?' but a lot of others are looking at it as a great opening."

In volleyball, both Crook County (Class 4A) and Summit (5A) are looking to repeat as state champions this fall. Rosie Honl's Cowgirls have won a state-record six straight state titles, while Jill Waskom's Storm team captured its first championship in 2011.

In other stories to watch develop this fall, Sisters High will try to return to the Class 4A girls state soccer final for the third consecutive year, Redmond High competes at the 5A level for the first time since the OSAA reorganized from four classifications to six before the start of the 2006-07 school year, and the Mountain View boys and Summit girls soccer teams hope to bounce back from early playoff upsets in 2011.

Also, mark Sept. 6 on your calender. Ridgeview hosts Redmond in volleyball on that evening in the first head-to-head sports contest between the two new rival schools.

“It's going to be bittersweet," says Ridgeview volleyball coach Debi Dewey, who was a longtime assistant coach at Redmond High. “I certainly don't immediately disown a place I worked at for years. We'll be competing against one another on the court, but off the court I won't be carrying that rivalry with me. I wish for them a great season just like I hope they wish the same for us."

Ridgeview, which expects to have approximately 600 students this fall, will play full Intermountain Hybrid schedules in all sports but football this year. The Ravens will compete for berths in the state postseason with Crook County in Class 4A's Special District 1.

“We might take our lumps during the season playing bigger schools," Bleyer says about his soccer team. “But to rise to that level quickly, you've got to put yourself at it right away. You've just got to keep the right outlook."

'DAILY DOUBLE' TRYOUTS SCHEDULE AND INFORMATION

DAILY DOUBLES HERE WE COME!  THEY BEGIN MONDAY, AUGUST 20TH

IMPORTANT NOTES ALL PLAYERS AND PARENTS MUST KNOW:

Unless you have already been excused by Coach Bleyer personally you MUST CHECK-IN BETWEEN 9:00AM AND 9:45AM ON MONDAY (8/20) in the TV classroom at Ridgeview (we'll make it easy for you all to get in). This includes players who are currently injured or not cleared yet (physical/academics/paperwork).

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A PURPLE RIDGEVIEW SOCCER TRAINING SHIRT YOU MUST BRING THAT TO MONDAY'S CHECK-IN. All players will be issued a shirt for the week and they must wear the shirt to each session, morning and evening. (It'll be up to you how often you wash it... hopefully at least.... once.)

All players must also bring SHINGUARDS, SOCCER SHOES, RUNNING SHOES and a WATER BOTTLE to each session. Even if the schedule says something that leads you to believe you won't need your running shoes or shinguards, for example, be sure to bring 'em anyway. Large stickers with numbers will be distributed to all players and they must be worn on a player’s shirt or shorts for all sessions. ‘Skins’ (going shirtless) will not be allowed during any sessions. Shirts can be taken off the moment we're finished. We are requesting that players wear WHITE SHORTS AND SOCKS for each session but will not make that mandatory.

The meeting on Monday morning from 10-11am will cover important topics about what will be expected of Ridgeview boys soccer players and how we all plan to create a culture of success and respect. Players will be asked to sign a 'Ravens Boys Soccer Code' that holds them to certain standards on and off the field. PARENTS ARE INVITED TO ATTEND THE MEETING but it is not mandatory. (A separate 'parents only' meeting will be held Monday, August 27th at 7pm.)

By the way, PARENTS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND AND OBSERVE ANY AND ALL ACTIVITIES NEXT WEEK. Just please respect the process and give the players and coaches their needed 'space.'

The players who miss Monday morning's meeting must attend a separate meeting (to cover what they missed) on Wednesday the 22nd at 5pm in the TV classroom at Ridgeview.

Currently injured players or (knock on wood) those who suffer a setback during the week are encouraged to still attend each session throughout the week to observe and show their commitment to the program.

On Friday (8/24) afternoon (by 3pm) we will release the varsity and JV rosters via e-mail and will post them on this site. We will then distribute the players their full 'kit' for the season (two full sets of match day uniforms and sweats) that evening (6:30p), take team pictures and have a fun celebratory mixed squad scrimmage!

IT WILL BE A CHALLENGING WEEK FOR ALL. IT WILL MOST LIKELY BE HOT. STAY HYDRATED.

We will be asking the boys to take 'ice baths' on site (for muscle regeneration) and eat fruit (provided) following each session. A school trainer will be available at almost all times and we will take frequent breaks. If you have any questions or want to alert me of any absences, don't fail to get in touch with Coach Bleyer.

HERE WE GO! GO RAVENS!

RAVENS SOCCER CAR WASH RAISES FUNDS

The Ravens recently held a car wash at AIC Insurance, located right next door to the new Fred Meyer Gas station.  IT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!

We raised a nice 'chunk-o-change' which all goes directly to Ridgeview High School athletics and Ravens soccer!

A big THANKS TO Travis Bennett for volunteering the great space, the Curtis family for arranging the outing and all of the other parents, players and siblings who helped with the event.  We'll definitely be doing it again.

So get your car nice and dirty between now and then!



Ravens at Timbers

RAVENS SOCCER TRIP TO TIMBERS MATCH

The Ravens traveled to Portland to watch the Timbers face Chivas USA in Major League Soccer on Saturday, July 28th!

Our players and parents made a long day out of it and had a great time cheering as members of the Timbers Army!  Unfortunately, a Danny Califf header for the Goats in the second half was the only goal of the game and Portland lost the match 1-nil.  But our group had a great time.

THANKS TO THE PARENTS WHO VOLUNTEERED TO TRANSPORT THE BOYS TO AND FROM PORTLAND!

Ridgeview's 1,400-seat football stadium anchors its outside athletic facilities. Surrounded by an eight-lane track, the athletic field was built without a crown to make it usable for soccer matches as well as football. The field runs east to west with spectacular views of the Cascades. A practice field sits just behind the home bleachers in the picture. For track season, the stadium houses two rings for shot put, two pole vault areas and two long- and triple-jump pits.

Athletics at Ridgeview High

New Redmond school will open next year with dazzling facilities

By Beau Eastes / The Bulletin
Last modified: December 19. 2011 

Redmond High athletic director Brent Walsh shows off Ridgeview High like a proud parent.

As he should. The Redmond School District's new high school, which is scheduled to open in fall 2012, is downright awe-inspiring.

Walsh, who helped plan the athletic facilities at Ridgeview, last week gave Bulletin photographer Ryan Brennecke and me a tour of the $75 million, 280,000-square-foot new school, located in the southern part of Redmond along Old Bend-Redmond Highway. While the finishing touches are still being applied, Ridgeview's athletic facilities instantly become the crown jewel of Central Oregon as soon as they open.

“The possibilities are endless,” said Walsh, who envisions the school bidding to host Oregon School Activities Association state championship events sometime in the future.

Here's a few of the highlights we saw, starting with the venues that will house winter sports teams:

Gymnasium

The baselines and bleachers are already painted and the OSAA seal is on the floor in Ridgeview's new gym, which including the main playing area and the auxiliary upper-level floor is 28,000 square feet. For comparison, the gym facility at Redmond High measures about 19,000 square feet.

Even with the bleachers fully extended, spectators will be 10 feet from the court boundaries. (So if you need to make a run to the restroom or concession stand during a game, you won't have to worry about being bowled over by a player or referee.) The high ceiling and exposed steel and wooden beams give the gym an urban industrial feel popular with current builders.

Wrestling room

Ridgeview's gym is nice, easily one of the best high school gyms in the area. The school's wrestling room is state of the art, maybe one of the best in Oregon, high school or college.

“It's one of the nicest mat rooms in the entire state,” beamed Walsh, a longtime wrestling coach before going into administration.

Natural light fills the 4,000-square-foot room through skylights and windows that look out at the Cascade mountains. The room, located on the second floor of the school, is equipped with a whiteboard for the coaches, cubbyholes for shoes, a spit sink, and wall-to-wall speakers.

Outdoor athletic center

Ridgeview's football stadium, track, and baseball and softball fields — varsity and junior varsity — are best viewed as an ensemble. The complex has one main entrance, good for crowd control and for streamlined admission. And a concession stand and restrooms are part of the package.

The football stadium, with a seating capacity of 1,400, is the centerpiece of the setup. A press box on the home side houses multiple soundproof rooms for coaches and media. The field itself was built without a drainage crown, leaving a flat surface for the soccer matches that will be played at the stadium. The football practice field conveniently connects with the stadium itself.

For track and field, the stadium contains an eight-lane track and two pole vault pits. The jumping runway and pits are located on the west end of the football field, slightly below a small hill, which creates a natural seating area for spectators.

Approximately 40 feet southwest of the football stadium lie the varsity baseball and softball fields, both of which feature spacious dugouts and storage/changing rooms. The fields are situated less than 200 feet apart, making it possible for spectators to watch baseball and softball games at the same time.

East of the varsity baseball and softball fields sit two more diamonds, one each for junior varsity baseball and JV softball. The JV baseball field is expected to double as a soccer pitch.

Weight room

While the room has yet to be equipped, it should be a dandy when it all comes together. The same size as the mat room — 4,000 square feet — Ridgeview's weight room looks from the outside like a Central Oregon CrossFit gym, complete with oversized windows and garage-door-style walls that can be raised when the weather is nice. Additionally, the weight room opens directly into the gymnasium and is adjacent to the training room.

The Ridgeview campus also includes eight tennis courts, a day-care center for teen parents, and maybe the most state-of-the-art performing arts auditorium in Oregon east of the Cascades — it reminded me of Eugene's Hult Center. The whole package, not just the athletic facilities, are first class all the way. The school's main entrance and its common area look like a small college's student union, complete with school merchandise store.

Walsh has already scheduled several athletic events for next year to showcase the new school. Ridgeview is set to host a four-team football jamboree in the fall as well as a freshman volleyball tournament. Next winter, the Adrian Irwin Memorial Tournament, a massive high school wrestling event staged annually in Central Oregon, will move from Bend's Mountain View High to Ridgeview. And Walsh expects to host a basketball tournament as well.

Was the $75 million price tag worth it? You'll have to ask a Redmond taxpayer. But without a doubt, Redmond has built a school and athletic facility that will be a source of pride for the city and the region for years to come.

Ridgeview High gets good reviews

Open house shows off Redmond's new high school

By Ben Botkin / The Bulletin
Published: May 04. 2012

REDMOND — Fifteen-year-old Jordan Stacy smiled, greeting each visitor to Redmond's new high school with “Welcome to Ridgeview.”

Ridgeview High School will become Jordan's stomping grounds this fall, when she starts her junior year. On Thursday, she was a door greeter at Ridgeview for an open house that gave the community its first look at the school.

“I cried the first time I saw it,” she said. “It is absolutely amazing. It's like the Disneyland version of school for me.”

Shortly before 7 p.m., about 850 people had already entered the school for a look since 5:30 p.m., according to a count by Dustin Stacy, Jordan's father.

“It's making me want to go back to school,” said Stacy, a volunteer greeter at the entrance.

The 250,000-square-foot school, a two-story building with 54 classrooms, cost about $65 million. The cost is covered by a $110 million bond passed by voters in 2008, which also put money into other school improvements throughout the district.

As part of those efforts, the district is planning to remodel Redmond High School in the year ahead, adding windows and other improvements to an aging building in an effort to make both schools equal.

Attendees wandered about the building with maps, getting directions and information about the school's features from volunteers including staff, students and parents.

Calvin Rodman, 15, will be a junior at Ridgeview this fall. Visiting the school with his mother, Janet Rodman, he joked that he's looking forward to “getting lost in here.”

Students said the size was impressive and gave high marks to the gym.

“It's really big,” said Katrina Johnson, 14, a sophomore this fall. “I like the gym because I play volleyball.”

Brian Manselle, Ridgeview's incoming art teacher, showed people the room where 16 potters' wheels will run when students take ceramics classes. A nearby room will be used for teaching painting and drawing.

He said he's thankful the community supported the bond, which helps make arts instruction possible.

Jordan will be president of the student council at Ridgeview this fall. She said the new school's start is a good opportunity to set the tone for the years ahead.

Other future Ridgeview students agreed.

“You get the opportunity to shape the culture,” said Austin Row, 16. “That's the cool part.”

He'll be a junior at Ridgeview, as will Dakota Steen, 16.

“I'm just really excited and pumped for next year,” she said.

Ridgeview is expected to have about 635 students this fall, while Redmond High's projection is set at 1,077 students. Ridgeview will have freshman through junior students this fall and open up to seniors in the 2013-2014 school year.

Ridgeview High will have a second open house from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on May 29.
