Teaching at Ferris High School in Spokane and coaching soccer in Cheney is crazy, she said. "I was gonna do it one year, but I just couldn't leave," she said. So Sheldon's back and ready to whip her team into shape. "Initially we're gonna struggle because we're starting from scratch again," she said. But she noted that her four seniors, C'dra Westson, Megan Foland, Casey Peterson, and Katie Bumgarner, will keep the team together. And Sheldon sees a lot of po- tential in some of her new play- ers. Three freshmen, Elsa Fredenberg, Malorie Briggeman, and Katlyn Laughlin, joined the team this year. Laughlin will be a starter. "She's really good," Sheldon said. "She's really coming along." The team's first game was Sept. I against West Valley. They lost 2-0. "I told the girls that if they beat West Valley they were awesome," Sheldon said, add- ing that West Valley was a tough team to play, and the game would give them a good idea of how they were going to do in the season. The secondary has some holes to fill with the loss of hard-hitting Billy Gaines and the graduation of Mosley and Potter. Edmondson established himself as one of the GNL's best safeties last year and gives the Cards a solid piece to build upon. The Cardinals looked good at the Cheney Jamboree on Friday, with the first team defense keep- ing all opponents out of the end zone. "We had a couple mistakes here and there, but overall it was pretty good," Giannandrea said. "Everything was positive - best of all, we didn't have any inju- ries." If the Cards stay healthy, they should contend for the GNL crown this year, likely challeng- ing Chewelah for top honors. Pulhnan and Deer Park could also figure into the championship mix. have never done - beat Colfax. While not in the same league, Cheney will get two shots at the Lady Bulldogs during the regu- lar season. Hauer said she expects the team to be tested with some big games, particularly against Sandpoint and perennial rival Colville. The Bulldogs are the defending Idaho state champi- ons, and Hauer thinks the Indi- ans will be one of the tougher Washington schools in the Bor- der League But it's a state berth the Lady Hawks are really after. A trip to the big dance would be some- thing they could sink their teeth into to culminate a successful season.

Cheney swimmers look for solid year Kropidlowski, Wainwright, and Wagar to anchor strong, By JOHN McCALLUM Staff Reporter What a difference a year makes for the Cheney High School girls swim team. Last year at this time, the only thing head coach Rusty Eagle was sure of about his team was that it was inexperienced. This year, he is still not sure, but for a different reason. "I always seem to underesti- mate every season and get sur- prised at the results every year," he said. For the Lady Hawks, the sur- prise in 2000 was having two re- lays and four individual swims at the state meet in Federal Way. Eagle thinks they can do better in 2001. "I think we have the potential for two relays again, and maybe five to six individual swims," he said. Eagle said the strength of the team lies with junior Haley Kropidlowski, sophomore Nonie Wainwright, and senior Stephanie Wagar, all of whom Blackhawks_ several events last year, and a solid com- petitor experienced team return from last year's squad. Wainwright competed in the 50- yard freestyle at state, and was joined in Federal Way by Wagar in the 100 breaststroke, and the 200 individual medley. Both will be competing in the same events this year, with Wainwright also swimming in the 100 freestyle. Kropidlowski was strong in i i, "I think we have the potential for two relays again, and maybe five to six individual swims." Chene), head coach Rus,t Eale on the relay teams. Eagle said she will be filling the same role this year. Returnees Brandy Perry, Kristen Maxvill, Mary Charlton, and Mickey Reed have been working hard in practice, Eagle said, and he expects good things from them as well. In coming freshmen Rachael Roig and Lucy Morgan have also been having good practices. Eagles sees potential in both and continued from page 6 is 6 feet, 1 inch, 175 pounds. Against West Valley last year, Burke caught one pass for 23 yards. Ryan Cogley will also fill a receiver position. Cogley brings his size to bear, 6 feet, 2 inches, 185 pounds, as well as his experi- ence. Last year, he routinely turned in good yardage. Joining this group is Pat Carbaugh, a se- nior at 6 feet, 175 pounds. Lest we forget the offensive line, the Blackhawks will prove tough on the line this year. Add- ing to the line's size this year is senior Paul Gill, filling the right guard position. He is a resound- ing 6 feet, 5 inches, and he put on some weight over the summez Smashing success! Cheney's Green Smashers pose with their first-place trophies af- ter winning the Spokane Youth Sports Division 3 Sysa Kristi Ann Baker Memorial Softball Tournament and league title. The Smash- ers finished the season with a 13-1 record. The team members tipping the scales at 305 pounds. Jordan Olsen fills the right-guard position. Jordan is a senior at 5 feet, 9 inches and 225 pounds. Junior, John Albin, will guard the left side at 6 feet, 4 inches, 225 pounds. He will fill in as a defen- sive tackle as well. Big man Chris Perkins, a junior at 6 feet, 5 inches and 245, anchors the left side at tackle. Center position is filled by Eric Suarez, a junior at 5 feet, 8 inches and 155 pounds. Peter Gresham, a senior at 6 feet and 160 pounds, returns at the place kicker spot, while Adam Clayden, a sophomore at 6 feet, 1 inch and 175 pounds will fill the kicker position. In his game against Colville last year Clayden averaged 27.5 yards a punt. As with many high school teams, many of the offensive players change sides. However, the returning standouts on de- fense this year are Tom Desmond, believes Morgan will be strongin every event she swims. Eagle says he expects his team to be tested in meets with Pull- man and Eastmont, the two teams he feels will be the 'toughest this year. Eastmont is always strong, and Pullman has been steadily improving in its program, he said. Cheney always starts meets against these two schools 13 points behind because the school lacks a diving program. Eagle said that with 18 swimmers, and a team that in- cludes a lot of experi- ence and depth from last year, they hope to over- come this disadvantage. The Lady Hawks will get tested early. Cheney opens the season at the Moses Lake Relays on Wednesday, Sept. 6, results of which were too late for this edi- tion. They face Pullman this Sat- urday, Sept. 8, at 1 p.m. in the EWU pool, and travel to Wenatchee on Tuesday, Sept. 11, to take on Eastmont. Jordan Quisenberry, Aaron WynhofL Chris Gfeller and Drew Oswald. Desmond, a senior at 5 feet, 10 inches and 185, will fill either a defensive tackle or linebacker position. Quisenberry, a senior, fills a comer spot on defense. The returning starter is 5 feet, 10 inches and 175 pounds. Also a senior, Wynhoff, fits the nose guard spot at 5 feet, 9 inches and 205 pounds. Gfeller is a junior at 6 feet, 2 inches and 190. He de- fends at a linebacker position as does Oswald, also a junior. He weighs in at 217 pounds and 6 feet, 1 inch. The team faces Coeur d'Alene in their opener at home Friday, SepL 7. With a winning year last year, they should prove tougher to beat this year. As coach Tom Oswald said, "We were right in there last year. If we play like we're capable, we'll be right in all of them."
