EWU was com- in the final standings, one Oregon State and Wash- ased on the ich posted 16-8 Northern hrs.) iS. tshington, Oregon State record tbe re the only Northern nes entangm to rmst winning league t. 1981. Rate =- WoUnd up four games !th-place Portland State iga and Washington, the 1981 Northern Division titlist, followed with 10-14 records and Portland was last with a 6-18 record. The Northern Division had seven members this spring after a merger between surviving members of the Northern Division and the Northern Pacific League (NorPac). The seven are the remaining NCAA Division I baseball teams in the region. EWU wound up its first season under coach Jim Wasem with a 24-28 record, overcoming a 7-16 start by winning nine of their last 10 games. After sweeping league doubleheaders at Washington and University of Port- land the previous weekend, EWU began its final week of play by splitting a doubleheader with sharply improved Central Wfishington in Ellensburg. The Wildcats won the opener, 4-3. EWU captured the nightcap, 2-1, behind the pitching of freshman Mike Johnson (Spokane). Last Friday, Eastern tripped Oregon State, 2-1 and 7-3, before ending the season with 3-0 and 6-5 conquests of Portland State in Cbeney. In sweeping Oregon State, EWU pitchers Ron Burns and Chris Fazendin shut down slugger Jim Wilson, who became Northern Division Player of the Year, six straight times. Burns fanned Wilson three times in the opener. Lefthanded-hitting Mike Smick, a player of the week candidate, wound up the campaign by going six for 12 at the plate with four RBI in the two twinbills. He finished the league season with 13 hits in his last 25 official at bats to wrap up the team batting championship. Smick, a junior from Ephrata, led the team with 56 hits and a .389 average, highest since Eldon Hancock batted .394 in 1977. Smick, a transfer from Centralia CC, also was tops in total bases (73) and walks (30). As a sign of his consistency, Smick hit .391 in league action. Junior Jim Ewing (Kirkland) hurled seven-inning shutouts against Washing- ton and Portland State to conclude the season and he led the pitching staff with a 2.11 earned run average despite a 4-5 record. Ewing permitted only 39 hits in 59 2/3 innings. Burns was the top winner with a 5-6 record. Fazendin (4.6) had a 2.87 ERA and reliever Barry Kate finished with a 5-1 record, five saves and a 2.27 ERA, but did not pitch enough innings to qualify for the title. Smick placed third in Northern Di- vision batting. Washington's senior outfielder Jeb Best was first, batting .401. Ewing won the Northern Division ERA crown. Fazendin was fourth in earned run average and strikeouts (51). Burns (Spokane), Fazendin (Kenne- wick) and Kate (Havre, MT) are graduating seniors. Shortstop Wayne Collins (Tacoma), second baseman A1 Simmons (Tacoma) and first baseman Ken Bettinson (Kennewiek) also have completed their careers. Collins and leftfielder Alex Podruzny (Wanham, Alta.) were the only players to appear in all 52 games. However, Simmons, who led the team with 15 stolen bases in 19 tries, and outfielder Shawn Mackin (Spokane) played in 51. Because EWU has played extended schedules for only three years at the Division I level, Collins and Simmons finished among career leaders in game played and at bats even though both were junior college transfers. Burns, Fazendin and Kato joined career lead- ers in pitching categories, including starts, innings and complete games for Burns and Fazendin, for the same reason. Fazendin narrowly missed one- season marks for innings pitched (81 2/3) and complete games (8). In each case, he fell short of records establish- ed last spring by Bill Patterson (Belle- vue). Collins is believed to have set an EWU record with eight sacrifice bunts. Simmons led Eastern this spring with 34 runs scored. Podruzny was the RBI leader with 36. Ben Creighton (Kirk- land), the third outfielder, narrowly missed breaking the one-season record with 32 strike outs. However, he also led the team with three homeruns and batted .300. Smick and Bettinson shared the doubles lead with 11 each. Maekin, Podruzny and Simmons each had three triples. Eastern batted .293 as a team, third highest figure in EWU history. The Eagles had a record 32 sacrifice bunts. The pitching staff had a collective earned run average of 4.68. EWU was fourth in Northern Division hitting and fifth in the pitching figures ranked by earned run average. Both team rankings are somewhat deceptive. At the plate, EWU tended to intersperse low-hit games with ex- plosions of 12 hits or more. On the mound, Ewing, Burns, Fazendin, Kate and the fourth starter, Barry Aden (Renton), had a combined ERA of 3.36, which would have led the Northern Division with room to spare. a champion :)ugh her loss, Be Toklas' A ventional ii iiiii iii tmpionship j, man acq=. flOe/Track net status in! lercedes McG H awks q u all fy ,narmedseagll state actio ;t pass on tell nil B n Holden, TrJ RobertKleidY High School track Jb act. torapete in state action at in Tacoma this Friday I1" A nigh m " " "un from an  pet]tmn at East Valley 3ult.

Likewise, the boys' doubles team of Randall Strad- ling and Lars Johansen from Cbeney claimed the top doubles title by defeat- ing a Pullman team, 6-2, 6-2. Cheney's girls' doubles team of Malei Young and Maura Flynn followed suit with their title win over their Clarkston rivals, 6-1, 6-1. "They (Young and Flynn) were terrific," commented Cheney girls' coach Jeff Butler. "They didn't have a close match." The coach said he wa5 pleased with their work and confident of their play at state. The Flynn/Young team is the first girls' team from Cheney ever to ad- vance to state tennis action. Maura's sister, Angela, previously went to state in singles action in 1979. Natalie Alnutt represented Cheney at the district meet this past weekend at West Valley and won her first match, 6-2, 6-1, before being eliminated. Cheney boys' coach Gary Hutsell noted his pleasure over his dominating team. Manson's last match was tough, he commented, and Stradling and Johansen "were awesome." Hutsell said Johansen was strong at serving and serve-receiving, allowing Stradling to be tough up front at the net. Monday night, Manson was given the Most Valuable team member honor, while Stradling was voted Most Inspira- tional. Philip Wall was named Most Improved. For the girls, Flynn was named as the Most Valuable, with Jill Schelling being named Most Inspirational. Taking the Most Improved honor was Alnutt.
