8 The Sun, Wednesday, June 22, 1994 Sheridan High School graduate Kevin Hutchins won the Phil Sheri- dan Days 8K run Saturday morning, beating the next competitor in a small field by more than a minute and a half. Hutchins, who ran in this year's Boston Marathon, won the race for the second time in the last three years. He covered the nearly five mile course in 28 minutes and 32 seconds. Kevin Pelky was second overall in 30:05. Greg Sigrist was third in 30:36 and Phil Watkins was fourth in 32:08. Sigrist and Watkins gra- duated from Sheridan High School earlier this month. The only female competitor in the race was Toni Banks. She finished in 43:54. Event chairperson Traci Grauer said, "I was a little disappointed with the turnout. We had 13 runners. That's less than half of what we normally get. The damp weather might have had something to do with it." The top three runners overall and the top three in each age class received ribbons. The finishers and their age classes were: 14-18: I st, Greg Sigrist, 30:36; 2nd, Phil Watkins, 32:08. 19-29: 1st, Kevin Hutchins, 28:32; 2nd, Mario Ortiz, 33:15; 3rd, Marcus Daniels, 56:44. 30-39: 1st, Kevin Pelky, 30:05; 2nd, Art Borrego, 34:25; 3rd, Robert Scyoc, 43:54. 40-49: I st, John Simonson, 42:00. 50-61: 1st, Ted Gross, 40:18; 2nd, Jack Barnes, 40:18. 62 and over: 1st, Carl Bainte.r, 40:40.

By Travis Moore Staff Writer, The Sun Matt Aalto proved to be one of the better basketball players in the state in last weekend's 2A all-star games at Clackamas Community College and Linfieid. Aalto was the West Valley League's Most Valuable Player this season and was named to the West all-star squad. Aalto got his first taste of all-star action Friday night at Clackamas Community College. He will attend Clackamas next year. Aalto found the style of play to be physical and wide open. His hustle gave him 4 points, 7 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocked shots in less than half the game. The West won the game at Clack- areas, 94-82. Aalto had a bigger impact on the game Saturday at Linfield College in McMinnviile. He started the game for the West squad and scored the first three points. He played several short stints throughout the 40 minute game and was the leading rebounder with 12, including 7 offensive boards. But he had some problems at the free throw line. He never got into a rhythm and went 1 for 8 from the stripe. Aalto scored 9 points, dished out an assist and grabbed three steals. Seven players in double figures gave the West the 114-70 victory. Aalto said that he loved the entire experience. "They don't call anything in these games," he said. "But that's okay. That is probably the best way to handle these games." Aalto will try to play basketball at Clackamas along with high jumping for the track team. He won the state 2A championship in the high jump this year. e i o o Willamina's Matt Aalto takes the ball to the hoop in a 2A all-star game at Linfleld College last Saturday.

The finish gave Sheridan a third place overall record in the season standings. "Everybody felt good about the race. We got to spend the whole day up there.
