At 6-6, Vince Oredson is usually
quite easy to spot in a crowd.
With this next tallest teammate
listed at 6-2, Vince is unusually
easy to spot on the Ashland High
Basketball squad.
"It puts a little more pressure
on me being the only real tall
player. I have to go to the boards
more." said Oredson who speaks
quietly, but deliberately.
Originally from Ashland,
Oredson moved to California and
went to Canoga Park High School
as a sophomore. After a year on
their varsity team he moved back
to Ashland.
Oredson sees Roseburg, with
B-7 Rich Parsons, as being the
toughest team in the conference.
Oredson speaks calmly about
Parsons. "He's not as fast as
(Jeff I Bradford from Klamath
but he's lough. He goes to the
basket well," said Oredson.

Is Oredson going to continue

Center Vince Oredson, moves in on

Supporting a 2-6 season record
the Grizzlies will be trying to

Season Begins Slow
By giving away 12 points every
time they have a match the
pressure is on the wrestling team
to make up these points.
The points come from forfeits
at 106 and 191 pound weight
classes. In the past years, the
Grizzlies have always had a full
team but this year is different.
The win-loss record is 4-8-1 but
there are several wrestlers that

Among these are heavy weight
