In what amounts to a three-ring sports circus of sorts, Taft High athletes will dominate the local entertainment landscape Tuesday afternoon when the Tigers baseball, softball and track and field teams compete in home competition in Lincoln City.
As if that weren’t enough, the boys and girls golf teams are scheduled to compete this morning in road matches at Trysting Tree Golf Club in Corvallis and Creekside Golf Course in Salem.
In the center ring – under the big tent at Voris Field, if you will – will be a rare home meet for the Tigers track and field team.
The Taft boys and girls are coming off a sweep of several league opponents Thursday at Dayton, where they captured seven events, including both boys sprints by senior star Gabe Arce-Torres, new Coach Joey Arce-Torres son.
Tuesday’s competition against Amity, Dayton and Horizon Christian is scheduled to begin with field events at 3:30 p.m., and running events at 4 p.m.
