During the summer the gym was updated with new lighting and the court was refinished and repainted. IIISheridan tied with Valley Catholic at top of West Valley League By Herb Swett - Correspondent, The Sun Sheridan won two regular volleyball matches last week and then finished a close second in a tournament in whicli all the other schools were 5A and 6A. The Lady Spartans whipped Gervais at home 25-10, 25-7, 25-13 Oct. 13; edged Valley Catholic in Beav.erton 13- 25, 25-14, 24-26, 25-23, 15-12 Thurs- day; and fought hard in the Liberty In- vitational Tournament in Hillsboro on Saturday. Gervais, usually strong in volleyball, had been a tough foe when the Spar- tans played them there last month, but Sheridan kept converting easy oppor- amities into points. Spartan coach Matt Leichty said his girls played consis- tently with "a very well-rounded team effort." Amber Moser led Sheridan with nine kills and four blocks, Kayleigh Whelchel with six aces and nine digs, and Hanna Ellis with 23 assists. The Spartans took five games to even their season record against Valley Catholic. In the first game, the Valiants Photo by Karl Ekstrom Meagan Bainter spikes the ball against Gervais' Jessie Rush. were ready while Sheridan made costly errors. The Spartans turned things around in the second game and drew praise from Leichty for keeping their composure and attacking the Valiants' weaknesses. The remaining games were close, with the Spartans keeping up their team effort. Whelchel led with 19 kills, followed by Moser's 18 and Kelsi Vandewettering's 11. Moser led with nine blocks, and Whelchel and Olivia Hamilton tied for the digs lead, each with eight. Ellis led with 41 assists. At Liberty, Sheridan started pool play by defeating Putnam (Milwaukie) 25-14, 25-13. The Spartans downed Hillsboro's Spartans 25-13, 25-20. Then they played Camas, Wash., losing 21- 25, 16-25, to get the No. 2 seed. The top two seeds from each pool went into the gold division bracket, the bottom two into the silver division bracket. In the Spartans' first gold match, they beat Cleveland (Portland) 25-20, 25-16. Then came the semifinals, in which they defeated Glencoe (HiUsboro) 26-24, 25-18. In the championship match, they faced Camas again. Camas won the first game 25-20 and Sheridan the second 25-22. Game 3 was a seesaw contest that Camas won 17-15. "We were right there," Leichty said, "but couldn't quite get what we needed to pick up those last couple of points. They were a very athletic and talented team, but we really stepped up our fo- cus and our play and were right in there at the end of the match." For the tournament, Moser's 49 kills and 13 blocks were top Sheridan fig- ures, with Vandewettering geeing 27 kills and Whelchel 25. Whelchel led with 20 aces and 42 digs and Ellis with 86 assists. By Herb Swett Correspondent, The Sun Chris Stash finished first out of 114 boys in Thursday's cross country meet at Chemawa. The Sheridan runner ran the race in 17:33, which was a minute faster than last year's time on that Salem course. The Grauer brothers also improved their times by at least a minute, Steven placing 25th at 20:08 and Taylor 71st at 22:24. Megan Wolmendorf came in 43rd out of 77 at 28:51, Rachel Hayden 45th at 26:29 and Sarah Hayden 67th at 28:51. Coach Barb Hadley said that the Spartans would not par- ticipate in this week's pre-dis- tricts, because they are the same day as Homecoming, but that they would train hard for the Oct. 30 districts. Sloppy weather slows Dawgs By Clinton Vining Publisher, The Sun The slop couldn't stop Willamina's cross country team, but it did slow them down in last Thursday's race at Chemawa High School in Sa- lem. "The rain held off, so we considered ourselves lucky," said head coach Ariah Fasana. 'qlae course was a little muddy and sloppy, so times were a bit slower than usual." Willamina's top boys run- ner, Jacob Borck, finished the 5K race in 20:15 in 29th place. Ryan O'Brady was no. 2 for WHS in 21:20. Brbnt Bruckner was right behind him in 21:23. Nick Goodman finished in 25:38. Josh Perry and Jordan Voigt wrapped up the varsity with 25:40 and 27:02. The Bulldogs will race Fri- day at Bush Park in Salem in the pre-districts race. IIISheridan defense holds HaWks after opening drive TD By Herb Swett Correspondent, The Sun Two schools with 3-2 records faced each other Friday in Tualatin, and Sheridan prevailed over Horizon Christian 14-7. The game was more defensive than most expected, with the Spartans' de- fense, adjusting to the Hawks' attack and repeatedly shutting down the host school's swing pass in the second half. Patrick Mitchell was the offensive star of the game, scoring both Spartan touchdowns and leading his team with 98 rushing yards and 68 receiving yards. Brock Ingram completed 17 of 27 passes for 171 yards. Horizon's Cole Simonson domi- nated the early minutes of the game. He calried the ball most of the lime during the Hawks' only march to the end zone and scored their only touch- down on a run from the three-yard line. Trevor Guay kicked for a 7-0 score. Sheridan responded with a passing attack that looked good at first, with Ingram connecting twice with Jake Denton and once with Mitchell, but incompletions and a 12th-man penalty caused the Spartans to turn the ball over on downs latejn the first quarter. The Spartans got the ball back on downs early in the second quarter, but Photo by Clinton Vlnlng Jake Denton turns upfield after catching a pass in the first quarter from Brock Ingram against Horizon Clldstian.

Another onside kick went into Osburu's hands, but Sheridan's de- fense held. Mitchell intercepted a pass just as the first half ended: Horizon's opening kickoff of the third quarter went out of bounds. Sheridan started ~i passing attack but found itself with fourth down. Langley's punt rolled into the end zone for a touchback. The Hawks made a few short ground gains but lost the ball on downs. A Spartan drive ended with a short run into the end zone by Mitchell, but a holding penalty wiped it out. The third period ended with the same 14- 7 score. Early in the fourth quarter, Ingram was sacked twice but then hit Hale- Edmerson in the end zone, only to see another holding penalty prevent a score. The Spartans then lost the ball on downs. Horizon got nowhere and punted. The Hawks' James McMonagle then grabbed a Spartan fumble on the Sheri- dan 24. On the next play, Alex Ludwig seemed to intercept a pass, but inter- ference was called. Then Hale- Edmerson intercepted a pass at the Sheridan five. After a few short ground gains by Mitchell, a delay-of-game penalty was called against Sheridan. Fourth down came, and Horizon tried to block Langley's punt in the closing seconds but could not. "Our defense worked hard," coach Brice Ingram said. 'qlaey tried to keep us away from the ball. What we didn't do is quit."
