Brasket got started in pull compe- titions because he used to race sled dogs. He has been putting on pulls for 12 years; this will be his seventh time at the Phil Sheridan Days event. "The favorites in the competi- tions are usually the Alaskan Mala- mutes," he said, "This year we'll have a 172 pound Malamute that has pulled up to 4,900 pounds." Brasket said Pit Bulls seem to be the best weight pullers pound for pound, and it is mostly because of their mentality. "The owner can't do anything to encourage the dog to pull," he said. "The dog has to do it because it loves to, and for the love of the master. Most of the time it really isn't the breed of dog that counts, it's the dog's personal mentality."

The Spartans travelled to Willa- mina on Tuesday. The Bulldogs pounded Sheridan on the boards and took the game easily. "We started off good. We led halfway through the second quarter, but we ended up losing by about 20 points," said Sheridan head coach Larry Samples. "I thought we did a pretty gocxl job of moving the ball. We got good shots, we just didn't hit very well, and they really outboarded us," he added. The Sparts hosted Perrydale Thursday. Sheridan took the lead from the Pirates in the second quarter and never gave it back.

"Then we started rolling, and we ended up winning by about 16. Jeremy Yoder had a good game offensively and Zeke Holder did a good job at the point guard position tor us." Sheridan lost their first game to Dallas by over 25 points. The Spar- tans tried to turn that around Mon- day when they played Dallas at home but this time the locals lost by 14. Dallas held a small lead at half- time, 27-19, and ended up winning the game 48-34. "We played better this game," Samples said. "They had to press us to stay "ahead this time. When we started to pick things up we stayed with them." Dallas is a Class 3A school. Sheridan's record is now 1-3 in summer league play.
