The Lady Spartans upset the West Valley League champion Lady Bob- cats, 55-42. Sheridan has won three playoff games in the last week, but the game against the Lady Cats was the toughest. Center Summer Gibbons has stepped up her play in the playoffs. Nichol Moore has also played solid. Gibbons is scoring 19 points per game in the playoffs. Moore is averaging 17. Senior Wendy Tho- mas is adding 7.7 points. Monday night's win puts Sheri- dan one victory away from the state 2A tournament in Pendleton.

If Sheridan wins, the Lady Spar- tans will go to the state tournament as a first seed. If they lose, the Lady Sparts will have to play the winner of the second seed game between Nestucca and Catlin Gable. They would need to win that game to qualify for state as a second seed. But if the Lady Spartans lost to the the winner of the Nestucca/ Catlin Gable game, they would be eliminated from the playoffs. Whew!! Those are the the bilities for the regional playoffs.
