Gallagher takes helm of Spartan cross country team By 11"avis Moore Correspondent, The Sun The Sheridan High School cross- country team began its season Mon- day with a new coach and only a few runners who showed up for practice. John Gallagher will take over the coaching duties from Jim Salter. Gallagher has three years of high school track and cross country coaching experience. He coached two years in Ohio and one year at Canby High School. Gallagher has been running about 16 years. He ran in high school, and intramurals at Notre Dame. He has also been running competitively at track events throughout the Western U.S. and Canada for the last seven years. Gallagher has only two returners from last year's team. He said Phil Watkins has been running most of the summer, and Matt Waiters showed up for the first practice Monday. Watkins and Waiters are both sophomores. Another sophomore, Rob Raser, was also at the first practice. Gal- lagher said the boys team should also consist of Ricky Rodney, Ryan Torrence, Rob Giddings, Brian Bar- ker, Lewis Asuncion, Scott Asun- cion, Greg Sigrist, Kees Schouten, Jerry Campbell and Shawn Marts. Heidi Kunzler and Tawsha Ogg will run on the girls team.
