Sisters High School Outlaws athlete spotlight

The Sisters Outlaws wrapped up an adjusted “winter” sports season this month. The coaches at Sisters High School shined a spotlight on two standout athletes: volleyball ace Greta Davis and cross-country state champion Ethan Hosang.

Coach Rory Rush said, “Greta has averaged 15 kills per game this year. She leads by example on the floor and is a go to for us when we need to put the ball away. She is always first to the gym and last to leave. She always has an encouraging word for her teammates and is such a spark of energy on the floor with her infectious excitement. She has established herself as a top player in our league and a huge part of our success.” Davis earned first-team, all-league honors.

She plans to continue her volleyball career.

“I hope to play beach and indoor volleyball at a college — I don’t know where yet,” she said. “Hopefully someplace close to home.”

Davis also participates in Outlaws student government. She is the daughter of Darcy and Chad Davis of Sisters.

Ethan Hosang extended an undefeated streak in a modified season and became the second boys cross-country state champion for Sisters in the last two years, taking top honors in the 4A State Championships.

“Ethan earned that state title thanks to his unwavering commitment to the sport,” said Nordell. “His win at State in leading our team to a very close third place trophy brought tears to my eyes. I am so proud of him.”

Assistant Coaches Charlie Kanzig, Sarah Thorsett, and Dennis Dempsey concurred.

“Ethan Hosang exhibits the very essence of humble determination,” said Kanzig. “He is model of excellence as a student athlete.”

Ethan maintains a 4.0+ grade point average.

Hosang is the son of Joe and Kim Hosang. He plans to enroll at Lane Community College, where he will continue his running career for the Titans cross-country and track teams.
