Tennis season looks bright
for this year’s men’s squad
By Rick Obritschkewitsch

After a couple weeks of
waiting for the rain to end, the
College men’s tennis team has
finally been able to play some
matches to gain a record of
Although tennis Coach
Dave Buckley’s squad has
competed with two teams,
Monday’s match with Mt.
Hood was played indoors. The
day did not go too well, as far
as the Cougars defeating their
opponent. The team came
away with a 7-2 loss.
Even though the Mt.
Hood competition was a loss
for the Cougars as far as
records go, Buckley was pleas­
ed with his team’s perfor­
mance. “We did real well
against Mt. Hood,” Buckley
said. “They are one of the best
teams in the state, and it was a
fairly close match up, although
the final score does not indicate
that,” Buckley said'.
Oddys Trillo and Mike
Wofford were the only two
Cougar victors, with scores of
6-4, 6-4, and 6-4, 6-0, respec­

two games and the match 6-1,
Oregon spring rain has
held the Cougars from too
much more competition,
although they did travel to
California during the term
break to gain experience.
Buckley said, “California’s
calliber of play is well above
anything found here.”
Although the men's tennis
squad d*d not win any matches
in California, Buckley felt it was
a good experience for his team.
The tennis squad includes
Mike Doane, who was sixth in
state while playing for Oregon
City High School last year,
Mike Wofford, who did welLin
the high school AAA doubles
tourney at state last season
while playing for Milwaukie
High School.
Referring to Wofford, a
victim of cerebral palsy,
Buckley said, “He plays
remarkably well for the han­
dicap he has.”
Martinez has never
seriously competed before this
year, and Buckley is' amazed at
how well he plays. Playing
behind Martinez is the Cougars’
only returning player, Oddys
Ben Campbell played
doubles for West Linn High
School last year, as Rob
Anderson did for Milwaukie.
Ken Lindhorst was a high
school teammate of Anerson
last year, as he played singles
for West Linn. Rounding out
the eight member tennis squad
is a former Franklin High
School singles player, Rob
Buckley feels his team has
a good chance of going to
regionals this year, with
possibly a fourth in state.
Buckley said the toughest com­
petition for the Cougars will be
the defending Regional Cham­
pions Treasure Valley.
The Cougar squad has
depth this season, which is
something that was missing
from last year’s team. “If our
number one and two players
are playing weak, four, five,
and six should still be able to
score points for us,” Buckley
The Cougars are having to
resort to playing in the gym
since the weather is not
cooperating too well. Buckley
feels it is tougher to play in­
doors since it demands quicker
reactions, “but it is better than
