Spartan JV netters earn 13-3 record By avls Moore Correspondent, The Sun If the Sheridan High School junior varsity volleyball team is an indication of Lady Spartan varsity volleyball in the future, the future is very bright. The JV Lady Sparts won the JV West Valley League race this season. Sheridan finished 13-3 overall and 12-2 in the WVL under coach Heidi Brady. The race was tight, but the Lady Spanans came out ahead by one game when the season was over. The team's only two losses of the year in league came against Dayton and Western Mennonite. Brady said the Western match was early in the season, and the Dayton match was close. "I think the loss early in the year to Western was important," Brady said. "We didn't play well, and we lost. The girls just decided then, they didn't want to lose anymore." Brady said Mandy Kadell and Carmen Olds did a good job this season at the setter position. She also singled out Lisa Prough and Vickey Gourley as the team's best hitters. "Overall we had a strong serving team, and that really helped us this year," Brady said. "Plus, we were really consistent, and you usually don't find that on a team that is predominantly freshmen." "They basically just play the kind of volleyball we try to teach them here. We run the same system as the varsity to work toward the future." Brady also said her team was a good bump-set-spike team, with a middle hitter all season, and she really didn't see that from any other JV squad her team faced this year. She also mentioned the last match of the year against Willamina as one of her teams' most memorable matches of the year. "The last match against Willa- mina was really intense. It went to a third game, and was close all the way. We were down 14-15 in the last game, but we didn't give up. Vickey Gourley came in and served the last three points for us, and she hadn't really played back row all year. We were really pumped up after that win, and it was a good way to end the season." The coach said the strengths of her team were serving, athletic abil- ity, good setters and the ability to work together as a team. "It also helped having so many players to choose from," she said. "I was able to pick 12 out of 24 players for my team. You don't usually have that luxury as a JV coach. "The girls weren't used to losing so they never went out there think- ing they were going to lose. They always had that good confidence. "I could see five girls off the team becoming varsity players next year, and maybe even one or two starting. I think their ability, good husde and winning attitude can help the varsity next season."

BENNY'S TAVERN 161 Main Street, Willamina 876-9972 is Shonn Leno, Willamina's defending state champion wrestler, undergoes massage by teammate Jay Alexander at wrestling practice. Coach Bob Bishop anticipates successful season, especially In lower weight classes. First match for Bulldogs Is Dec. 5. Bulldog matmen look good By Shawn Callanan Correspondent, The Sun The Willamina wrestling program has gotten off to a great start, preparing for their first match, a dual meet against Toledo on Dec. 5. The Bulldog wrestlers have been practicing since Nov. 4, working on conditioning, takedowns and other moves, according to head coach Bob Bishop. There are 26 wrestlers on the team so far, including defending state champion Shonn Leno. Leno and six other Willamina wrestlers competed in an open tournament last week at Pacific University in Forest Grove. In the 107 pound weight class, Leno placed second, and 178 pounder Doug Stewart took third. Bishop believes that he definitely has a stronger team than last year, especially since he now has all the weight classes filled. Last year three or four classes had to be left vacant as there was no one to fill them. Bishop also thinks that the 'Dogs should he very competitive in the lower weight classes because of a lot of good freshmen. Bishop said that he could think of several wres- tlers with a good shot at going to state. Bishop sees Dayton and Vemonia as two tough teams since both have many good wrestlers returning. He also thinks Wahtonka and Corbett should do well. The coach said that he expects junior Shonn Leno and seniors Bubba Cavan and Doug Stewart to provide leadership for the younger wrestlers. As for an assistant coach, that is one factor that is still up in the air. The assistant wrestling coach for the past six years, Barry Wilson, may not be returning this year. At first it looked as though Bishop would not have an assistant but at his urging the school reconsidered and negoti- ations are currently underway. Bishop said that he has no idea who will end up getting the job but he hopes it will be resolved soon. Anyone wanting to go out for Willamina wrestling should talk to Bishop at the high school. Spartan wrestlers get ready By Shawn Callanan Correspondent, The Sun It's November and that unmistak- able chill in the air must certainly be telling you one thing: wresting season is nearly upon us. Cecil Elbert, head coach of Sheri- dan's wresting program, is optimis- tic about the team's prospects this year despite losing three excellent wrestlers to graduation. He said that although the Sparts will have less firepower than last year they should be a better dual meet team because everyone else is back. Official practices start next Mon- day. Lately there have been optional practices on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays which have consisted simply of weightlifting and other conditioning. When the required practices start, Elbert says he will be concentrating mostly on fundamen- tals and conditioning until about January when the team will begin wrestling a little harder. The Sheridan matmen have a new assistant coach this year, Tim Jor- dan. The assistant for the past few years, Rusty Clemmons, has moved to a new teaching job in Bend. Jordan has been a volunteer assistant for the last two years and is familiar with the wrestlers. He was an outstanding wresder for the Sparts, bringing home a state cham- pionship. Jordan also wrestled for two years at Clackamas Community College. Elbert will be looking to the three seniors---Greg Wilson, Jamie Hens- ley and Travis Taylor--to help him lead the team. He expects great things from all of them this year. Twenty athletes are going out for wrestling. Elbert wants as good a turnout as possible and says that anyone who is interested can either contact him or just show up at practice. Sheridan's first match will be Friday, Dec. 6 at home against Central Linn.

"I think we are going to put in a three-point shooting competition," he said. "We will have three spots in three point range and four balls at each station, and each shooter will have 30 seconds to shoot all the balls. It will be a few dollars to enter the competition." Samples said he sent out about 90 letters to alumni basketball players. the event has been well attended every year, and Samples hopes there will he a large turnout this year.
