Page 12 Cheney Free Press Thursday, November 11, 1982 :# ;*: Cheney earns state berth "We're just going to take it one game at a time," said Cheney High School's volleyball setter Kara Neubauer during practice Monday afternoon. The Cheney girls soundly defeated West Valley, 15-6 and 15-3, in playoff action Saturday night in the Cheney gym, much to the dismay of the large WV following. The win put Cheney into the State Volleyball Tournament to be held Friday and Saturday a't Mt. Si High School Issaquah. Cheney will face R.A. Long of Long- view in its first match Friday at noon. "It'll pit power against power," said Cheney Coach Gary Hutsell, noting that he and some of his players are familiar with the R.A. Long coach and his players. Other schools in Cheney's pool will include Fife, Washington, Chief Selth and Edmonds. The first and second- place winners in each of the two pools will play for the first and second- place state titles. "If we play liked we played against West Valley, we'll sweep state," said Team Captain Malei Young. Junior Laurie Hattemer noted it was "team play" that won the match for Cheney against West Valley. "It was everyone," she said. Joining Hattemer on the front line is Lisa Mills, Debbie Barrom, Cassey Wagoner and Young. Also hitting and receiving during the rotation are Neu- bauer and Jill Schelling. However, expected back in the line-up will be hitter Mary Mindrup, whb recently was hospitilized. Coming off the bench also will be Amanda Fish, Rachel Martinen, Debbie Schafer and Bonnie Gildea. "It feels good to be back," said Mindrup, who has been out two weeks. "We really were ready, mentally," said Hutsell, "and, tactically, we were ready, too." The coach noted that his team was able to practice a set game plan of hitting the ball to various spots against West Valley. "We set the rhythm and the tempo, and they had to play our game," he said. Hutsell noted that Young played an outstanding game, hitting for 71 per- cent, passing 90 percent and serving for 100 percent and one ace. Hattemer was credited with 14 of the team's 29 kills. Hitting for 50 percent, she also recorded three stuff blocks. Hattemer also served for 100 percent and passed for 83 plercent. Neaubauer, said the coach, "made some beautiful sets,'. She, like the rest of the team, move well in the match. As a team, Cheney passed for 74 percent, hit for 41 percent and served for 92 percent. Cheney jumped off to a 6-0 lead in the first of the two games, with Barrom serving. Cheney, with its power attack, then stretched the lead to 12-2, before West Valley attehpted a comeback. WV pulled the scSre to 13-6 before Cheney again took charge. Barrom and Hattemer combined with a block for the last point. In the second gam:e, Cheney took a 3-0 lead, at which time West Valley scrap- ped for two points. After several ex- changes, Cheney hen pulled ahead to 8-2 before allowing West Valley to claim the last point of their season. Two years ago, Hutsell led his team to a second-place finish at state. Cheney advanced that time after falling to Pullman and earning the number-two seed from the Frontier League into the state tourney. At state, Cheney defeated Tumwater, Franklin Pierce, Olympia and Queen Ann, before falling to Mark Morris, 8-15 and 14-15.

Smith to run in state meet "I really wanted to beat the two East Valley girls, and I was really trying to : think 'team' all the way." That was the comment by Cheney High School junior Kathryn Smith after her third-place finish in the Frontier League District Cross Country meet Nov. 3 at Hangman Valley. Smith's finish placed her amont the top five who will advance to state competition Satur- day at Evergreen High School in Seattle. Finishing ahead of Smith at district were Colville's speedster Kim Burke (19:00.9) and'West Valley's Heidi Valentine (19:29.9) on the three-mile course. Smith's time of 19:58.6 was good enough to beat that of her East Valley rivals, Teddie Pederson (20:09.1) and Krista Dinatale (20:13.7). "I really wish the team could have gone to state," continued Smith, , daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Grant Smith. "The whole team is really good." As a team, Cheney took second with a mark of 66 behind East Valley, which scored 32. Behind Cheney in the scoring were West Valley (68), Pullman (85) and Colville (119). Individually, Cheney's team captain Rene Wiley placed seventh overall with a time of 20:30.3. Her sister, Michelle, came in 13th at 21:14.0. Cheney Coach Randy Hazeltine said he was sorry the team did not take the top spot to advance to state. "I wasn't disappointed in the races," he said. "They really went for it. They stepped up in the race, and I really was pleased with that." Kathryn Smith "We had some very good competi- tion," added assistant coach Cathy Randall, who said she expected East Valley to finish among the top four teams in the state. Coach Hazeltine also said he was proud of his boys' team which finished fourth in the tournament and fourth in league this season. Teams placing in the event were West Valley (24), East Valley (71), Pullman (95), Cheney (104), Medical Lake (125), Clarkston (135), Colville (145) and Deer Park (212). Leading Cheney was Phil Martin, who placed 13th in the race with a time of 17:35. Martin suffe,'ed a sideache in the critical first mile of competition. Second for Cheney and 18th in the race was Stuart Mills (17:39). Matt Haugen ( 17:57) was third for Cheney and 23rd in the race. Following close behind Haugen in the 25th and 26th spots overall were Cheney's John Massong (18:04) and Shawn Triplett (18:09). Blackhawks beat Deer Park "We were able to win, but the kids were very disappointed in their per- formance." That was the word from Cheney High School football coach Tom Oswald following Friday's 18-6 win over Deer Park. The coach noted that Mike Bunting ran "very hard" to pick up his 129 yards. He also noted that lineback- ers Marty Mitchell and Lee Henry also played well. Mitchell totaled six tackles and three assists, and Henry recorded five tackles and an equal number of assists. "We wound up wit a 5-3-1 record, and we've got to be pleased with that," said Oswald. "With a break here or there against Clark.ton and West Valley. we could have been 7-1-1." Cheney's other loss this season was to East Valley. The tie game was on Cheney's third outing against Pullman. Friday, Del Krumm raced six yards in the first quarter for Cheney's first score. Deer Park answered in the second quarter on a 12-yard pass. Both extra-point kick attempts failed. In the third quarter, Krumm ran for seven yards on another scoring play, which was followed in the final quarter with a three-yard TD run by Bunting. For the night, Cheney picked up 242 yards on 58 rushes, while holding Deer Park to 30 yards on the ground on 22 attempts. Bunting carried the ball 26 times for his 129 yards, with Krumm adding 65 yards on a dozen carries. II Running for 55 yards on 16 carries was Tim Stanley. Cheney quarterback Bob Fitzner completed six of 13 passes during the evening for 56 yards, while Deer Park caught only four of 17 passes for 67 yards. Tim Dyers pulled down two of Fitzner's passes for 24 yards, as did Krumm for 10 yards. Rob Brownfield grabbed one pass for 21 yards. Picking up two fumbled Deer Park balls for Cheney was Henry, with Krumm and Wayne Farmer also pick- ing up a loose ball each. Kevin Clouse made one interception for eight yards, followed by Krumm's interception for 16 years.

I 301 1st -- Cheney - 235-4655 Eagles open basketball season tonight Eastel:n Washington University's men's basketball team will tune up for its official 1983 season opener Thursday night by hosting the outstanding Athletes in Action Canada in a Reese Court exhibition on the EWU campus. Joe Folda, assistant for the last three seasons, will take over as interim coach, while 15-year veteran Jerry Krause continues a sabbatical leave. Athletes in Action Canada is a post- graduate quintet which features veter- an guard Harry Sheehy, former Ark- ansas star Marvin Delph and a pair of 6'10" centers, Paul Renfro and James ttall. Coached by Rle (cq) Nichols, AIA has won only three of eight starts. tlowever, four of the defeats came in six games on an early October tour of China. Last winter, AIA rolled unbeat- en through a 28-game schedule. Sheehy completed his seventh season, averag- ing 20.2 points. Game time Thursday will be 7:30 p.m. EWU will open its regular 28-game schedule in Cheney on Saturday night, Nov. 20, when the Eagles host Simon Fraser. AIA defeated Simon Fraser, 79-21, last Tuesday night when Sheehy and Delph each scored 21 points. Folda is still undecided about a starting lineup and he may use as many as 10 players extensively in the early season. Eastern Washington graduated all five of its starters, including four year letterman guard Dave Henley and l'orward Don Garves, the top scorer and rebounder. Transfers John Bell (Portland), Dean Maye (San Francisco), Paul Ruther- ford (San Francisco), Jeff Reinland (Pomeroy) and Jay Bryan (Minne- apolis) are new. ", Letterman Lincoln Burton (Othello), Matt Piper (Roy), Andy Affholter (Toppenish), Dave Coffman (Denver), Melvin Bradley (Chicaco) and Tony Chrisman (Wallowa, Ore.) return. All saw considerable playing times as reserves last winter. Bradley was a spot starter as a freshman because of injury. Bell, who attended EWU as a redshirt last year, may be the most certain starter, according to Folda. A power t0rward and a strong inside player, Bell previously starred at North Idaho College, and he played one season at Cal State Fullerton. He is the only. Colville overpowers M L Cardinals With an end of season burst of energy, Medical Lake faced off with the Col- ville Indians last Thursday earning 26 points before succumbing to a superior Indian offense, for a final score of 36-26. Coach John Giannandrea said the Cards "played a good offensive game, but we couldn't stop Colville from scoring." The Cards had 32 rushes for a net yardage of 145 with tailback Tony Venson earning 44 yards on 11 rushes, John Holmes earning 84 yards on nine rushes and quarterback Richard Reid with 12 rushes for 18 yards. Reid was busy on the field against the Indians. In addition to his rushes, the quarterback completed nine out of 17 passes for 158 yards and brought in a touchdown. Holmes also earned two touchdowns and Venson scored one with Chris Broyles earning the extra two points. The total net yardage for the game was 303 yards with 13 downs. Coaches awarded two Cardinal Pybus to run at St. Cloud All-American Steve Pybus will lead Eastern Washington University into the NCAA Division II Cross Country Championship Saturday in St. Cloud, Minn., where the Eagles are expected to finish among the team leaders. Pybus, a senior from Summerland B.C., placed fourth in the national meet a year ago in Lowell, Mass., and EWU finished a disappointing 13th. The EWU men earned a trip to the national meet by placin third, behind UC Riverside and Cal PoJy San Luis Obispo, in the West Regional Champ- ionships in Riverside Oct. 30. Pybus ran ninth over a level course. I I I I THANKSGIVING HANDICAP : ) SWEEPER % 4 GAMES ACROSS 8 LANES .

Despite a 2-6-1 finish for the season, Giannandrea cautiously predicted a brighter season on the Cardinal grid- iron next year. Citing the return of junior players such as Holmes and Venson, the coach said he was optimis- tic of the Cards chances in next year's season. Women scrimmage tonight Trying to shake off the effects of costly preseason injuries, Eastern Washington University'S women's basketball team will make four exhibi- tion appearances this weekend while preparing for the opening of its 1983 season. The women will hold a Red-White scimmage Thursday night, prior to an exhibition game between the EWU men and Athletes in Action Canada, and they will be in the Seattle area Friday and Saturday before returning to Reese Court to host the independ- ent Seattle Seabaskets Sunday. EWU will launch a 27-game schedule Nov. 19, meeting Wyoming, the host school, in the first round of the Wyom- ing Dial Tournament in Laramie. Thursday night's scrimmage will begin at 5:45 p.m. Friday, the Eagles will conduct a clinic then scrimmage at Franklin High School in Seattle at 7 p.m. Saturday, they will do a repeat performance at Green River Commun- ity College in Auburn, starting at 1 p.m. Sunday's scrimmage with the Sea- baskets will start at 2 p.m. Coach Bill Smithpeters, who began fall practic with only 11 players on the roster, has been handicapped by the absence of standout sophomore wing Lori Clarke. Clarke suffered a hair- line fracture in her left foot. She will remain in a cast until early next week; although, Smithpeters hopes to take her to Laramie. Sophomore point guard Lisa Comstock (Spokane) missed a week with an ankle sprain. There have been a couple of others who missed practie time, as well. Todd Bright joins EWU grapplers Lacking in numbers and experience in the upper weigh[ division, the East- ern Washington Ufiiversity wrestling team will open its 1983 season Saturday in the North Idaho College Takedown Tournament in Coeur d'Alene. Among new freshmen on the team this season is Cheney's Todd Bright.

Maye, like Bell, was a major star in high school. He is a guard who is rated as an excellent passer. He previously played at San Francisco City College and UC Santa Barbara. He and Brad- ley, also quick and a slick ballhandler, may share playing time at one guard. Reinland, a fine outside shooter who transferred from Walla Walla Com- munity College, is trying to fight off the challenges of Affholter and Coffman at the other. Rutherford started fall practice as the center, but Chrisman, a 6'9" sopho- more who showed promise last season, has been closing the gap. Rutherford, the more physical of the two, did not play last winter because of knee surg- ery. Burton, one of eight juniors on the team, is projected as the other for- ward. Piper is an outstanding offensive threat who proved to be an excellent spot player during the 1982 season. Freshman candidates include for- wards Eric Kick (Everett) and Tim Kohn (Othello) and center-forward William Nixon (Chicago). A high school teammate of Bradley, Nixon is the most likely to play this season. ML With a competitor at the!
