Of The Print
At the onset of thé Cougar
tennis season, Coach David
Buckley and his men netters
had set the goal of getting to
the regionals. One person,
Mark Sanford, made it to the
regionals held at Treasure
Valley Community College in
Ontario last Friday and Satur­
day. But that’s where the
season ended.
In the first round of the
Region 18 Tennis Champion­
ships, Sanford was defeated by
Gary Wheeler of Chemeketa
Community College, 6-1, 2-6,
and 3-6, moving him to con­
solation competition where he
took another loss. Sanford lost
to a Blue Mountain Communi­
ty College-opponent to end his
and the Cougar men’s tennis
Sanford gained the oppor­
tunity to participate' in the
regionals by defeating a com­
petitor from Southwestern
Oregon Community College in
two straight games, 6-2 and
' 6-3, in the Oregon Community
College Athletic Association
Champions held the previous
Buckley was happy with the
season overall, looking at the
team’s handicaps at the beginn­
ing of the season. “I took the
job of coach late and didn’t
have time to do. any more
recruiting,” stated Buckley. It
was a group of guys fairly inex­
perienced in, college tennis
competition, and a new coach
who hadn’t gained the position
until about six months before
the season’s onset.
“We improved throughout
the season and were com­
petitive, defeating three of the
teams in our league,” stated
With a new coach and inex­
perienced, players, the season
was a learning experience for
the team all around.
Buckley has an optimistic
view for the Cougars next year.
He’il have a whole year this
time to do recruitinig with two
of this year’s netters, Allen
Cloud and Oddys Trillo, retur­
ning. Buckley has already
started on two players he
hopes to recruit for next
One problem Buckley has
run up against in recruitment of
new talent is that many of the
better netters, now seniors in
high school, are planning on
going to four-year colleges and
