"Lucas be in the outfield too. SOme people who can play out there." The wet weather hasn't helped the Sparts' practices. "Practices have been going pretty well, but we've been in the gym because of the weather," Stuck said. "Plus we've got about four or five guys gone at the state basketball tournament." Stuck said he though Willamina would be one of the top teams in the league again this year because of all of the Bulldogs' returning players. Sheridan has seven pre-season games before it gets into league play. "Our pre-season is going to have to be our practice," Stuck said. "We've got more games than prac- tices before league starts. "We are awfully young. We've got to fill our positions with quite a few underclassmen. With our inex- perience I'm going to do a lot of looking in these pre-season games."

Nichol Moore will play first base or in the outfield and Wendy Thomas will be in the outfield. Sheridan's league has a new look this year. St. Paul, Wahtonka and Western Christian have been added to the league. "I think Amity will be good this year," Grauer said. "They are always good. Dayton should be good; they got a few transfers. I never underestimate anytxxly in this league. It is crazy every year. "We are usually strong at the plate. I think we'll probably be good at hitting and pitching.

First meet Is scheduled for Thursday at McMinnvllle.--Photo by "ll'avis Moore. Spartan track teams look strong By "i}'avis Moore Correspondent, The Sun The Sheridan High School track team will try to get back in top form by the end of the year to make a run for its fourth straight West Valley League boys title. Sheridan lost some big point production from last year in Andy Rodney, Jason Aguayo and Steve Samples, but coach AI Ashcroft says that everyone who placed for the Sparts last year is back this year. "We are pretty young," Ashcroft said. "We have a lot of freshmen out, mostly boys. About half the team is freshmen and the other half is returners." Ashcroft singled out Russell Pot- mr as one of Sheridan's top retur- ners. "He won the district in discus last year," he said. "Now he's teaching the younger kids." events he is going to compete in." Other strong returners for the boys that the coach talked about were Rich Tomlinson and Lucas Crump in the sprints, David Morey in the 800 and Chad Ranes and Jess Acuff in the pole vault. Ashcroft also said there are four or five two-sport athletes who will help the boys. The Spans have one of the biggest girls teams in years this season. The 13 Lady Spartans include Carla Rodney. Rodney missed last year with an ankle injury after having a good freshman year. 'Tm happy to see Carla back out here," Ashcroft said. "She wants to compete so bad, but I'm not totally sure her injury is healed." He added: "We haven't won a girls dual meet since I've been coaching. Our goal this year is to win a dual meet. I think we have a good chance." Ashcroft said Wendy Woodcock Stephanie Aaron. "we aren't very strong in the hurdles and distance," Ashcroft said, "and we always ask people in the community to come and help us in the field events." Ashcroft said Santiam Christian and Nestucca will be the strongest in the league. He also mentioned Dayton and Willamina as the league's top competitors. "We're not quite as strong as we were last year," Ashcroft said, "but if we get people to fill our weak spots, we have so many boys (30), it's hard not to be optimistic for a fourth league title in a row."
