He added: "Our defense was pretty good, but our shooting wasn't. We were 6-27 shooting in the first half. Casey (Christianson) had a strong game for us." On Saturday, Sheridan played Colton in the third place game. Colton lost in the first round to Amity. Codon jumped out to a 15-8 lead after the first quarter, but the Spar- tans bounced back to a 3-point lead by halftime.

Holder led with 16 points, West had 13 points with six rebounds and Christianson had 11 points with 10 boards. Kachell turned in a strong game with eight points and nine rebounds. "We had a good effort from everyone," Samples said. "We got a lot of people involved on offense. We played pretty good on defense. We kept their big scorer from get- ting the ball in the second half. Zeke (Holder) has played well, and Casey (Christianson) got the Most Valua- ble Player award for us." Sheridan is now 2-1 in pre-season play and will play in the first round of the Sheridan Tournament on Friday. The Spartans' opener is against Nestucca. The champion- ship round will be Saturday. "They (Nestucca) got one all- league player back, and they've got good size," Samples said. "I think we are looking good so far, and the Dayton/Willamina game should be good. It should be a good tourna- ment." Sheridan 59, Catlin Gabel 65 Sheridan--Casey Christianson 22, Hook, Carnpos, Kadell 6, Holder 13, Widdison 6, West 9, Crump 2, Berrier 1, BlackwelL Yoder.

Sheridan 11 12 13 23-.-59 Santiam 17 12 13 23--59 With balanced scoring Lady Sparts win 2 By "lt'avis Moore Correspondent, The Sun After winning its first game by 63 points, the Sheridan girls basketball team added two more blowouts to its record last week in home games against Portland Adventist and Neah-Kah-Nie. The Lady Spartans played one explosive half of basketball to beat Pordand Adventist last Tuesday night. Early on it was clear the Lady Spans weren't going to run away with the game. The Portland players were fairly tall and looked to be good shooters in the first half. The press didn't bother the Lady Spartans, but good shooting by Adventist kept the score close. Sher- idan led 11-10 after the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, Portland got the fast break going and out- rebounded the Lady Spans. For the first time this season, Sheridan xas outscored in a quarter. Portland led 21-17 at halftime. The second half saw a new Sheri- dan team. Their new intensity gave them a blowout in the third quarter. Sheridan put together a 20-1 run in the period and took a 37-22 lead into the fourth quarter. The Lady Sparts continued their intense defense in the final period and widened the lead. Sheridan ended up winning the game 52-24. The Lady Sparlans outscored Portland 35-3 in the second half. A Bulldog Will Kirkham makes a strong drive to basket. big reason for the turnaround was Amy Thomas. Thomas took over the game most of the second half, hustling on defense and scoring baskeL Thomas led Sheridan with 19 points, and grabbed seven rebounds. Nichol Moore scored 11 and led the Lady Sparts with 10 boards. Sheridan's aggressive defense carried over Saturday against Neah- Kah-Nie. Sheridan gave a clinic in defense during the first quarter. The Lady Spans also worked the offense well to build a 15-0 lead. The score was 21-0 with 3:11 left in the half when Neah-Kah-Nie hit some free-throws, but that was all the Sheridan defense gave up in the cond quarter. The Lady Pirates just couldn't move the ball and Sheridan led at halftime 24-2. The Lady Pirates finally hit their first shot from the floor with 5:14 left in the third quarter. Sheridan continued to move the ball well on offense, and built its lead to 36-6 going into the fourth quarter. The last period was just more of the same. Sheridan had good pass- ing, and Neah-Kah-Nie didn't. Final score: Sheridan 49, Neah-Kah-Nie 12. The Lady Sparts had balanced scoring. Moore had 10 points with six rebounds and four steals. Rod- ney had nine points with seven steals. Thomas had nine points, and Stephanie Aaron added eight. Bulldogs survive in fast-paced test Willamina survived the frantic pace of Portland Adventist last week to give the Bulldogs their second win in a row. "Our scouting report said they were going to run a Loyola at Marymount game and that's what we saw," said Bulldog coach Jerry Buczynski. 'Tm pleased our kids hung in there," he added. Hang in, they did. With Will Kirkham hitting for 22 points, the determined 'Dogs wouldn't let the visitor's put a muzzle on their offense. In the bargain, Portland Adventist found out just how fast Bulldogs can run, too. "At times we had a hard time with their running style. They like to push the bail. We want to run but not like their style," Buzynski said. The 'Dogs, ranked No. 5 last week in a slate coaches' poll, face Dayton on Friday in the opening round of the Sheridan tournament. The Pirates received some votes in COMFoRTAND SPORTS Other Sheridan scorers were: Rid- geway with 4, Wendy Woodcock 4, Kelley 2, Heather Hill 2, and Mayn- ard with one. "They didn't exactly have a high- powered offense," LaRue said. "We just kept our turnovers low and played some active defense." So far, the Lady Spans are only giving opponents 17 points a game, while Sheridan's top three scorers combined are averaging 41 points a game. The Lady Spartan's first real test will come this week in the Sheridan Tournament. They will play Nes- tucca tomorrow in the f'wst round. Willamina will play Dayton in the other first round game. The winners will play in the championship game Saturday and the losers will play in the third place game. If Sheridan plays Dayton, the Lady Spans will get a good idea of where they are. Dayton is ranked as one of the top class 2A girls teams in the slate.

"Riscilla was out with a bad knee and Megan is playing with two bad ankles," said coach Dan Halter. He added: "And two of my starters from last year haven't turned out for the team so you can say we are playing without fottr starters."
