Relying on their distance
strength, the men’s track team
placed ninth, scoring but 24
points, in the National Junior
College track and field meet in
San Angelo, Texas.
Freshman Brian Abshire,
who going into the meet, had
posted the nation’s fastest
junior college 5,000, ran 14:25
for third, well off his seasons
best of 14:13. After winning
the regional 1,500 and 5,000
Abshire elected to just run the

Sophomore Ken Velas­
quez, who was eighth last year,
placed fifth with a clocking of
14:29, equaling his personal
record. The winning time was
14:21. Prelims were held two
days before. Abshire and
Velasquez were required to
finish in the top six of either of
the two heats in order to go on
to finals.
Clackamas was repre­
sented well in the 1,500 by a
couple of freshmen, Matt
Parker and John Hansen.

It is no secret that Hilton

Hansen was eighth in 3:54.
Both runners were pushed
hard in prelims as they had to
run approximately 3:53 to
make the finals.
An event in which the
Cougars figured to score big
points was the steeple chase.
Sophomores Steve Gogl and
Tony Macey had bests of 8:57
and 9:07, but could manage
only 9:20 and 9:25 for sixth
and eighth, respectively. “The
field went out kind of fast,”
Gogl said. ‘We were 2:11 at
the half.”

Jeff Tressler, Dan Dugan, Les
Taylor, and Ivan Coleman did

hoped as they clocked a

pitching. “Bauer played very
well against Northern Idaho,”
Coach Gene Petersen said.
“He allowed only two hits in
that game.”
Now with a 1-1 record in
the tournament, the Cougars
were down to the final game
which would decide who
would go to Regionals. Their
opponent once again was
Treasure Valley.
Jumping ahead in the first
few innings it looked like the
Cougars had it all wrapped up,
but then four costly errors gave
Treasure Valley the opportuni­

vantage of the situation and

Coach Petersen com­

with the performance of all the
One exceptional player
this past season was pitcher
Eric Bauer. In the 50 innings
Bauer pitched he had 50 strike­
outs, 21 bases on balls and
allowed only ten earned runs.
He also had an earned run
average of 1.80. Petersen said,
“Bauer did an exceptional job
for us this year and as a result
of his efforts made first team pit­
cher in Regionals.” In addition
to that, Bauer has the chance
to receive national recognition,
as he is eligible for All-
American honors.
This year’s roster consisted
of: pitchers-Eric Bauer, Ron
Bell, Jim Altringer, Don Can­
nady, Mark Gorr, Jeff Henry,
Jeff Scheer, and Rick Tonole;
the catchers were Mike Martin­
son and Bret Martin; first
basemen included Eric Bauer,
Ken Stoffer, and Chris
Ramsdell. At second base was
Tim Gardener and Tony
Mueller; third base was played
by Kelly Burke and Ken Hop­
per covered short-stop. Out­
fielders included Tony Mueller
in left field; Clay Baggerly,
Chris Ramsdell, and Scott
Thorpe shared center field
duties; and John Roth pro­
tected right field.
