Showdown tonight
Santos eyes S.P.U.
By Rob Conner
Of The Print
The big one is this after­
noon. Possibly the biggest
game of the season for Janos
Santos’ soccer team will be
played here, at the College, at
4:30.
The game pits Santos’
club, 6-1, against Seattle
Pacific University, a team
Santos feels, at the moment, is
the best on the West coast.
The fiery coach is confident
of his team’s chances, how­
ever. “I am very confi­
dent. The team has set a goal.
We will be very competitive,”
he stated.
Of Clackamas’ most re­
cent game, a 13-0 trouncing of
Columbia Christian, Santos
admitted it was no way to
come in to such n important
contest. “It was embar­
rassing,” the coach said
simply.
“It’s going to be in­
teresting, we’ll see what we are
made of,” Santos said of the
upcoming match. “I have
worked out some good
tactics,” he added.
The big question is, can
the stingy Cougar defense,
spearheaded by central
defender Mike Rhodes, con­
tain the offensive attack of
Seattle Pacific. Defenders
Scott Galloway, Tim Cho­
quette, Jim Keough, and
Rhodes have aided greatly in
the fact that Steve Enos has
rolled up 310 minutes of con­
secutive scoreless play. Enos
has only allowed six goals in
the first seven games.
The coach realizes, win or
lose, the most important goal
this year is to win the state ti­
tle. “It’s our last chance (next
year they will be in another
league). In the last three years
we won it once and lost in the
finals twice. It’s our turn this
year,” Santos commented.
Santos attributes his
teams success this season to
team unity. “Everyone is pull­
ing for one another.Team wise
we are 100 miles, well about 97
miles, ahead of where we were
last year.”
The 13-0 drubbing of Col­
umbia Christian upped
Clackamas’ season total to 37
goals in seven games. Even
without the thirteen goals the
Cougars are averaging four
goals per game.
LeRoy Neil picked up a
hat-trick as he led a balance
scoring attack in the win over
Columbia Christian. Brian
Gorsek, John Kashaba, and
Tim Canfield each collected
two goals. Canfield was also
credited with three assists.
Clackamas led eight to
nothing at halftime.
Woods ’ philosophy
100 percent effort
The Clackamas volleyball
program has always been
traditionally strong. Hoping
to add to that strength is the
new ringleader, Kathi Woods.
“Clackamas has always
had a strong reputation in
volleyball,” Woods said.' “I
would like to maintain that
reputation and improve the
winning percentage" each
year.”“
Linn-Benton was Wood’s
home for the past two years,
but a full-time teaching posi­
tion and the Cougars strong
reputation drew her away
from the Corvallis school.
“In the two years I was
there (Linn-Benton) we took a
non-competitive program and
made it into a competitive
team,” Woods said. “I like
the school but they did not
have the budget for a full-time
teaching position.”
With her foot barely in
the door at Linn-Benton, the
opening at Clackamas lit
Woods’ eyes. Not only was it a
chance to coach a winning
team but a full-time teaching
position also.
Before coaching at Linn-
Wednesday October 12,1983
Benton, Woods only other ex­
perience was as an assistant at
local Lakeridge High School
in 1978. Her playing ex­
perience includes two years at
Oregon State University.
“Ever since I was in
school I knew that I wanted to
coach at the community col­
lege or college level,” the
coach said. “Now given this
opportunity, it is my chance to
make the most of it.”
On the trip up to
Clackamas, Woods brought
more than just her belong­
ings—her top player from a
year ago and her top recruit
this year.
“My philosophy is to do
the best that I can 100 percent
of the time,” Woods said. “I
love volleyball and love to see
the girls work hard, and for
them to see themselves im­
prove—that is the best part.”
With her first season as
head master at the Cougar
program still in its earlier
stages, Woods feels that her
team has accepted her dif­
ferent style and philosophies
of the game.
FLYING ELBOWS—Action got hot and heavy against Lewis & Clark. Cougars do battle
