"We were trailing going into the last three matches so we made a shuffle with some of our guys," said Coach Sam Indorf. That move led to the victory, he added. Cheney's Aaron Mason boosted his record to 8-0 while Shawn Triplett kept his record undefeated. In a non-league meet held Dec. 16, Moses Lake defeated the Blackhawks 32-23. Indorf said Moses Lake is a member of the Big Nine, one of the toughest leagues in the state. He added that the Blackhawks were missing three key players who had been injured in the Central Valley meet. One of them was Shawn Triplett who injured himself during warmup. "We can't afford to miss guys like that when we wrestle someone like Moses Lake," Indorf said. Mead wrestlers top Medical Lake Ajumn! game be played Medical Lake Wrestling Coach Mike Carr said his team is improving each time it hits the mat. Last week it split two meets. Mead beat the Cardinals 39-28 while Medical Lake defeated Chewelah 45-27. In the Mead meet, Carr said it was the same story -- lack of experience in the upper weights. His lower and middle weight wrest- lets grabbed the most victories -- six. He added the team plans to rest up until the Timberline meet on Dec. 28. The Blackhawks open the new year on Jan. 8 at the Mead Invitational. Indorf said Cheney is the only AA school invited. He said this meet gives his wrestlers some good competition. "We don't get tougher opponents than those," Indorf added. Cheney travels to West Valley on Jan. 11 and then hosts East Valley on Jan. 13. five of their matches. That story was not the same in the Chewelah meet, however. Carr said his team did well in all weight classes. "We built up a big lead in the lower and middle weights," Carr said. They added a couple more in the upper weight class. Carr said the Cardinals have been outclassed in most matches by the upper weights. with a lot of experience," he said. Carr added that he hopes to see continued improvement with each meet. The Cardinals travel to Oroville Tuesday to wrestle in an eight-team tournament.

More recent grads, F. Miller Coach Bill Smithpeters has sent his Eastern Washington University women's basketball team home for the holidays, reasonably satisfied that the young Eagles are ready for the first Mountain West Athletic Conference season. EWU improved its record to four victories and six defeats by knocking off outclassed Gonzaga, 85-60, in the first half of an Eastern Washington- Gonzaga twin-bill last Friday night in Spokane. Junior star Fay Zwarych scored 23 points, took down 13 rebounds and handed out five assists as EWU tipped the Bulldogs for the seventh straight time without defeat. Zwarych also collected five steals. After two weeks off, Eastern will open its home season Jan. 1, hosting powerful New Mexico which returns all five starters from a 15-13 season. The Lobos are led by center Yvonne Mc- Kinnon and forward Alison Foote, both sophomores. EWU began its 1983 season with four straight tournament appearances, in- eluding the prestigious Dial-Sun Devil Classic before the Gonzaga contest. Eastern won the Coca-Cola Thanksgiving Classic at Utah State. "It was our goal when the season started, considering our schedule and how young we are, to win half of our first 10 games," Smithpeters said, "and we only missed that by one game. I can't feel too bad about it. At Tempe, we played with the big time and I think we gained from the experience." Smithpeters has been starting one junior, Zwarych, sophomores Lisa Comstoek (Spokane), Lori Clarke (Abbotsford, B.C.), Monica Van Riper (Sekiu) and freshman Cristy Cochran (Castle Rock ). Zwarych (Vernon, B.C. ) moved from wing to post when Clarke returned to the lineup after starting the $6.00 Dreamers and Schemers: A History of Pioneer Cheney, 1880-1895 by Virginia White season out of action while recovering from a stress fracture of the left foot. Zwarych, beginning to look like an All-America candidate, is off to the best offensive start in the history of EWU women's basketball. She has scored 209 points for a 20.9 average in 10 games and she has 87 rebounds for an 8.7 average. She already raks tenth in'career statistics for both categories even though she missed the first half of the 1982 season and played very little in the second half after undergoing reconstructive surgery on her left ankle. Comstock, who already has moved into fifth place in career assists, ranks second in current scoring with an 11.9 average. She has 57 assists for a 5.7 norm. Clarke is averagine 9.1 points, Van Riper has an 8.7 mark and Cochran is averaging 6.2 points. Van Riper turned in her peak effort of the 1983 campaign against Gonzaga, pouring in 17 points with 11 rebounds. Cochran, beginning to hit her stride, took "down 13 rebounds for the second straight game and added 10 points. "We've started to mature; there's no double about it," Smithpeters said. "We're still fouling too much some of the time and we still need to play with more consistency, but we're starting to show some confidence in ourselves, too." After meeting New Mexico and keep- ing a Jan. 7 exhibition date with Belco Electric in Reese Court, EWU will open the first MWAC campaign by hosting Idaho in Cheney Jan. 13. The eight MWAC clubs will play a 14-game home-and-home schedule. Belco Electric, a top semipro quintet, features Debbie Huband and Carol Turney-Loof, a pair of guards who are members of the Canadian national team, and former Seattle University sharpshooter Sue Stimac.
