Newport eliminates Mazama boys



NEWPORT, Ore. — The Mazama Vikings boys basketball team couldn’t punch its ticket to the OSAA 4A State Championship final site tournament, losing at Newport 73-60 Saturday night.

The loss ended the Vikings postseason, which began with a win to surpass regular season No. 3 Skyline finisher Klamath Union to claim the same spot entering the state playoffs. That win put Mazama in a better position to it to the final eight, but Newport held true to its No. 4 OSAA state ranking, winning by 13.
