12 The Sun, Wednesday, February 27, 1991 Lady "Dogs eliminated in playoffs By "lPavis Moore Correspondent, The Sun The Willamina girls had a tall order to fill in the first round of the West Valley League playoffs last Thursday night. The Lady Bulldogs had to play the league champion Dayton. The Lady Pirates had a 14-0 league record, including two victories over Willa- mina. After the first quarter it was pretty obvious the larger George Fox Col- lege  floor favored the running Pirates. Normal high school courts are 84 let long, and college courts are 94 feet. Willamina head coach Dan Halter said his team had trouble adjusting to the larger court. Dayton also used their inside game to build a first half lead, going inside to 6 ft. center Mindy Laube. The Lady Pirates led 32-18 at half time. The third quarter dashed any hopes the Lady Bulldogs had of winning. The press and inside game of Dayton pounded the Lady Bull- dogs, outscoring Willamina 22-9 in the quarter. The Lady Bulldogs outscored Dayton 10-8 in the fourth, but the damage had already been done. The Lady Pirates won 62-37. The game knocked Willamina out of the playoffs and made the Bull- dogs final record 10-10. Riscilla Lacno led the Lady Bull- dogs with eight points. Willamina ended the game with just 14 field goals. Laube was 10 for 15 for Dayton and ended with 20 points. Dayton also got 13 points from Shelly Potter. Potter won the league MVP award for the second straight year. Shelley Mendenhall scored five points in the game. Mendenhall got second team all-league honors. Lady Sparts end season with a win By "ltavis Moore Correspondent, The Sun The Lady Spartans ended their season on a sweet note last Tuesday night at Gaston, beating the Lady Greyhounds 55-26. The 29 point margin was the biggest Lady Spartan victory in more than four years. The game was never in doubt. Sheridan's press grilled Gaston all game for steal after steal to set up many Sheridan shot attempts. Chris Ridgeway led Sheridan with 15 point Britt Kelley had her highest output of the year with 10 points off the bench. Nichol Moore also provided 10 points for the Lady Spans. Coach Michelle LaRue said, "We shot the ball pretty well, and the press really worked. We got a lot of shots off of it. Everyone got to play a lot. It was a fun one to end on." Three Lady Spartans received all- league honors at George Fox Col- lege in Newberg. Ridgeway made the all-league second team. She was Sheridan's second leading scorer at 8 points a game in league play and 8.5 per game overall. Wendy Woodcock and Moore received all-league honorable men- tion awards. Woodcock was Sheri- dan's fourth leading scorer and a leading rebounder. Moore, a fresh- man, was the Lady Sparts leading scorer with a 10 point per game average in league and 8.6 per game overall. She was also one of Sheri- dan's leaders on the boards. The Lady Sparta ended league play with a 4-10 record, putting them in a tie for sixth in the league and only two games out of a playoff position. Including non-league play, Sheri- dan finished with a 6-14 overall record. Sheridan coach, players honored Sheridan basketball coach Larry Samples was honored as "Coach of the Year" by the West Valley League last week. The award noted that Samples had taken his team to third place in the league when many people thought Sheridan, winner of two state cham- pionships in the last decade, would go nowhere this season. Sheridan's Jon Campos made first team all-stars while Casey Christianson made second team and Jeremy Yoder made honorable men- tion. Willamina's John Hofenbredl and Anthony Mahurin both made the second team and Jorma Kyllonen made the first team.

The Sparts did just that, winning the game 56-45. The game started out a little sloppy with both teams forcing up some quick shots, but good defense gave Sheridan a 14-6 lead after the first quarter. The Spartans opened the second by outscoring the Greyhounds 6-3, but the game stayed even the rest of the half. Sheridan took the 27-17 lead into the locker room. Gaston hit some 3-pointers and played scrappy defense to get back in it. Jeremy Yoder hit a few baskets late in the quarter to keep Sheridan ahead 38-34. The Hounds got the first basket of the fourth to cut the lead to 38-36, but the Sparts spent the rest of the ures in the scoring column. Yoder had 14, Casey Christianson had 14 and 10 rebounds and Jon Campos had 10. Jeremy White had his best game of the year for Sheridan with 8 points and 10 rebounds. Coach Larry Sample said, "We came out a little flat tonight. Jeremy (White) had a strong game inside. We did pretty well at the line tonight, too. I think one of the best things about the game is that we haven't taken the back door to the playoffs." Sheridan sank 19 of 26 at the charity stripe. With the win over Gaston, Sheri- dan's league record moved to 9-5 and gave the Spartans sole posses- sion of third place in the league and a playoff game against Willamina.
