Section 2 October 8, 2015 Cheney Free Press Ty Graham attempts to move past an East Valley defender on the way to the end zone. Photo by AI Stover By AL STOVER S taff Reporter The Cheney Blackhawks football team continued their undefeated season with an impressive 35-7 Great Northern League win over the East Valley Knights, Oct. 2. "This was a big win for us," head coach Bobby Byrd said. "We came out firing on all cylinders. This was one of the first times during the season where we came together for four full quarters, with everyone on the same page and doing good things." Byrd complimented the effort from both his defense and offense. Chris Fuentes, in his first game as nmning back, got Cheney on the board early with a 9-yard touchdown late in the first quarter. In the second quarter, quarterback Jake Martin returned to throwing form after a 24-yard scoring pass to Trey Martin to bring the score to 14-0. Martin was 6 of 11 for 87 yards. Fuentes continued his impressive performance with a 20-yard TD to give Cheney a 21-0 lead at halftime. He had 10 carries for 86 yards. Byrd said Fuentes was doing well at middle line- backer this season and was brought into play running back after Brayden Butikofer was hurt. "We knew how talented Fuentes was during prac- tice," Byrd said. "It'snice to not have to put the game on just one guy's shoulders, as we did with Ty Graham in the Sunnyside game. For not having an offensive play prior to that game, it was awesome to see Fuentes get those reps." Fuentes also had some receiving yards after catch- ing a 12-yard touchdown pass from Martin in the third quarter. After Cade VanWormer made an interception, Cheney began their final scoring drive which ended after Ty Graham's 7-yard rushing touchdown to make the score 35-0. Graham had 20 carries for 122 yards.

Medical Lake head volleyball coach Kari Knowlton added an- other element - a kick in 'the butt. The "kick" was figu- ratively of course but Knowlton's certain it heIped the team end three seasons of frustra- tion and earn them a 3-1 Northeast A League vic- tory, Oct. i at Riverside (0-6 NEA, 0-7 overall) as Medical Lake rallied from a 25-23 loss in game one to claim the match on Wins of 25-14, 25-11 and 25-20. That third-set vic- tory clinched the team's first match win since Oct. 15, 2013, snapping a 25-match streak. The win came on the heels of a 3-0 crusher of a loss at home to Free- man (6-0, 11-0) Sept. 29 by scores of 25-9, 25-10 and 25-3, so practice prior to the Riverside win was a little rough, Knowlton said. But the team emerged with a new mindset. "They needed for me to kind of kick 'em in the butt a little bit to get things going," she said. "I think they need- ed a reality check and that's what I gave them," Knowlton said. "You guys have to do this for yourself, noth- ing's going to happen if you don't fight for yourself." After losing their first game of the match, Riverside's first win of the season, there was a lot of excitement in the gym. But a string 6f serves by Taylor Fritz -- seven in a row at least Knowl- ton said - got the Car- dinals rolling on their way to their first game victory 25-14. "Everything started falling in place, our sets were good, Taylor had double-digits for kills (10), Claire Dormaier 19 digs," Knowlton said. "Everything started clicking." It was different than in the past where Knowl- ton said the team would "plateau." This is the first time she's seen the team continue to build on its momentum. "They made sure they emphasized their opponents' mistakes," Knowlton said. "When they made mistakes they shucked it off; it was much more of a team game from what I've seen previously." A Tuesday, Oct. 6 match at home with Chewelah (1-5, 1-6) con- cludes the first half of the season. Medical Lake will be on the road at Colville (4-2, 5-2) tonight, Oct. 8 and Deer Park (4- 2, 4-2) Tuesday, Oct. 13 in the first second-half outings.

Glasgow' EWU Hall-of-Fame vote is well-des rved honor Contributed photo from EWU New EWU Hall of Fame member Gary Glasgow from Medical Lake was a four-year starter and led the team in batting as a freshman. By PAUL DELANEY Staff Reporter Perhaps the most un- usual thing about the in- duction of Medical Lake's Gary Glasgow into the Eastern Washington Uni- versity Athletics Hall of Fame is that the sport he was originally recruitecf to the school to play is not why he is being rec- ognized. "They recruited me to play football," Glasgow said, but the man who defined the term multi- sport standout for the Cardi- i~!i~ nals in ~: me eany iii~ 1 9 6 0 s ~!~: will be honored for his baseball skills. "I played (football) about two weeks then decided basketball and baseball were way more fun." He would earn a basketball letter in 1965. Glasgow, along with basketball players Ran- dy Buss and Kathleen Nygaard-Kaut, football and track's Dean Adams and gymnast/contribu- tor Randy Carruthers will join at the head table at the Pence Union Building Saturday, Oct. 10 for the induction ceremonies. The 1966 baseball team, on which Glasgow played, will be inducted on the 40th anniversary of their Evergreen Confer- ence and NAIA District I title under the direction of Hall of Fame head coach Ed Chissus. In addition, Cheney's Ruth Van Kuren and her late husband Lawson Van Kuren will be recog- nized for their 40 years of involvement with track and field as recipients of the Eastern Hall of Fame Service and Contribution Award. There's no doubting that Glasgow has all the numbers to make him hall-of-fame material. He helped Eastern win the Evergreen Con- ference title in 1966, and NAIA District I champi- onships in 1966 and 1967. He led Eastern in batting in 1965 with a school- record .429 average and in 19.66 with a .345 mark. Glasgow also held the school record for career hits (105) for 13 years, and at one time his .385 was tops for a batting average at Eastern. Playing in Ellensburg against hated Central Washington was one of his favorite places. During the 1966 sea- son he led Eastern to a doubleheader sweep of the Wildcats, going 6-of- See Crunch Time page 4
