Siuslaw graduates Joe Dotson (Class of 2015) and Max Perry (2007) have been named to the Southern Oregon University all-decade cross country/track and field team.
Twenty men and 10 women were selected by the SOU athletic department, which has been presenting all-decade teams this summer for each Raiders sport.
Selections are based on "national and conference honors, career bodies of work, outstanding single seasons and impact on team success," according to an SOU press release.
Coaches did not take part in the selection process, the release said.
Dotson, a five-time NAIA all-American, is expected to complete his eligibility next spring, hoping to also qualify for the U.S. Olympic Trials in the decathlon.
The trials are scheduled for June 18-27, 2021, at newly renovated Hayward Field in Eugene.
Perry, currently a coach and a teacher at Siuslaw, was a three-time NAIA all-American, placing second in the shot put in 2012, second in the hammer in 2012 and fourth in the hammer in 2011.
Perry was the 2011 Cascade Conference shot put champion.
Perry holds the SOU hammer record of 194 feet, 8 inches and is fourth all-time on the school's shot-put list at 58-2.5.
