The last few matches for
Coach Hudson’s golf team
haven’t proven to be what he
was expecting at the beginning
of the season, as the Cougars
took fourth in the Bellevue In­
vitational and dropped two
matches to Treasure Valley
Community College.
Although the weather has
been on their side the Cougars
cannot seem to get in the swing
of things. Teams and scores in
the tournament include winner
Columbia Basin College with a
309, Clark College taking se­
cond with a 311, Tacoma
Community College shooting a
320 to take third while the
Cougars took fourth with a
Bellevue Community Col­
lege settled for fifth with a 335,
Shoreline was sixth with 337,
Greenriver picked up seventh
place with a 339 and Wenat­
chee took eighth with 341.
Lower Columbia College
couldn’t seem to put their game
together as they hacked their
way to ninth place with a score
of 383. .
Individual Cougar scores
include: Dave Stephens-81,
Dave Reichert-82, Todd
Federichs-85, Jim Poach-86,
Andy Goodard-88, and Steve
Miles with 89. .

College. The first day, since it
was nice weather, both teams
played summer rules-play it
where it lies. Treasure Valley
won the first match with a 296
against the Cougars’ 302. Bill
Iseri from Treasure Valley was
the medalist with a score of 70.
The second day of play
didn’t prove to be more suc­
cessful. Treasure Valley im­
proved their score by six
strokes from the day before,
shooting a 290, twelve strokes
ahead of the Cougars’ consis­
tent 302. Dave. Stephens also
took the medalist honors with a
score of 71.
The Cougar linksters
recently attended the Region II
Tournament in Tumwater,
Washington. The field of 10
schools included all the com­
munity colleges from Seattle,
Tacoma, and the western part
of Oregon.
When asked to describe
her team’s performance in the
Linfield track and field meet
last Friday, women’s track
coach Marilyn Wynia threw
diplomacy aside and went with
a one word description. >
“Weak,” she said. “Simply
because we didn’t have
everybody there. It wasn’t a
scheduled meet so we weren’t
worried about the team scor­
More important to Wynia
was Sheri Hilton’s third place
finish in the Region 18 hep-
tathalon April 19 and 20 at
Albany’s Linn Benton Com­
munity College.
Hilton’s second runner-up
finish qualified her for the Na­
tional Junior College Athletic
Association national meet
May 19-21 in San Angelo,
A school record javelin
throw of 155-111/? highlighted
Hilton’s day in the seven event
meet. Other times and
distances for Hilton were a
16.0 time in the 100 meter
high hurdles, a 35-9V2 shot
put, a 4-10 high jump, a 29.0
200, a 16-1 x /4 long jump and
an 800 meter run of 2:48.4.
Clackamas’ Cyd McCormick
enjoyed a good day taking se­
cond in the shot put, and first in
the javelin with throws of
32-4y4 and 136-5, respective­
Terri Jo Kelly was third in
both the shot and the javelin.
Her shot put was a 31-10
heave and her javelin throw
was 132-3.
The Cougar women also
took first and third in the 400
meter hurdles when Vicki
Anderson finished the event in
1:07.6. Denise Wheatly took
second runner-up honors with
a 1:09:8 finish.
Susie Thompson was the
meet’s best in the 400 meter
run with a 1:00.5 run.
Abshire paces national 5,000
Freshman distance runner
Brian Abshire continued his
assault on the Cougar record
books Saturday in Eugene.
Running only his first 5,000
meter race of the season, Ab­
Velasquez’s mark of 14:29,
recording a 14:12.9 clocking.
The time is tops in the Na­
tional Junior College Athletic
Association this year. It is also
the second fastest in the nation
by a freshman at any level.
Abshire actually did have
the top frosh time in the nation
for some three hours until
University of Oregon frosh
Harold Kuphaldt ran 14:12.3
in their duel meet against
Abshire also holds the
school record in the 1,500
meters with a 3:51.
Braves can’t shake Dangerfield image

Baseball anyone?
The 1983 major league season is in full swing
and it has seemed to pick up where it left off last
year. The big story isn’t George Brett batting .471
or Mike Schmidt who already has five home runs,
but rather those amazing Atlanta Braves.
Who picked the Braves in the pre-season
polls? Sports Illustrated? No. Sport magazine? No.
The Sporting News? No. Me? You bet! And where
are the Braves right now? You’ve got it, atop the
National League Western Division, with a full game
over the Dodgers, and sporting the best record in
Why then didn’t any of the big national
publications pick the Braves? Respect. Everyone
wrote Atlanta’s 1982 season off as a fluke, crediting
it to their 13-0 start. Then when they dropped 19 of
21 everyone said, “See, I told you they would
fold.” But what do they do? They went head to
head with Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San
Diego over the final week and a half to win the divi-
n’Ted Turner has compiled a perfect blend of
quality young players and seasoned veterans, who
now have all been through it before. With two of
the National League’s finest players during the ’60s
and early ’70s, in manager Joe Torre and pitching
coach Bob Gibson, you can bet the Braves won’t
drop 19 of 21 this year.
What can you say about the Braves’s one-two
punch of Dale Murphy and Bob Horner, the top
home run tandem in the National League last
season. With the “Captain” on a tear early this year
(tied for the league lead in home runs with five) and
Murphy among the leaders with 12 RBIs, it’s no
wonder Atlanta is 12-3.
The Braves also possess the top double play
combination in the N.L. in Rafial Ramirez and Glen
Hubbard. Ramirez, along with the likes of Claudell

Washington and Brett Butler, have speed to burn

The pitching staff is supposed to be suspect
and without an overwhelming lefty. But Rick Camp
and Pascual Perez are both posting unblemished
3-0 records. With the veteran nuckleballer Phil
Nekro still in the starting rotation and two bullpen
aces in Gene Garber and Steve Bedrosian, the
once suspect staff doesn’t look so bad.
Sorry Tommy (Lasorda), but it might be your
turn to drop the big games down the stretch this
year. Without “old high pockets” Steve Garvey, as
far as I’m concerned the L.A. Dodgers are in a
rebuilding year and will not be able to play catch-up
if the Braves pull away, and they will during July
and August.
Look for the Cal Angels to give the Braves a
scare in the World Series. It’ll go seven games with
Bob Horner delivering the big blow, not Mr. Oc­
tober, Reggie Jackson.
