    Wrestlers down Umpqua, Mt. Hoo
By Randy Frank

Clackamas Community College wrestling
team moved one step closer to achieving
their goal of being national champions last
Saturday as they defeated opponents from
Umpqua and Mt. Hood in dual meets.
Umpqua, a team who starts five former
state champions, seemed to be caught off
guard as they were literally smothered by
the Cougar matmen, 46-5.
Mt. Hood, on the other hand, simply
couldn't get going as they lost to the Cou­
gars, 26-13.
The meets were highlighted by perfor­
mances by Paul Schwehn, Ken Lumsden,
Tom Ziegle, Steve Morris, and Rich Holli­
man, all who were double winners for
Schwehn, a 1975 graduate of Lakeridge
High School, put in the match of his career
as he defeated former AAA state cham­
pion from Sweet Home High School, Bill
Anderson, 13-10.
In a real battle, Schwehn and Anderson
wrestled to a 10-10 tie until late in the final
round. With 20 seconds left, Schwehn tur­
ned Anderson for the win.
Anderson had entered the bout with
Schwehn undefeated on the season, with
pins in eight of nine matches.
As a result of his effort, Schwehmwas
voted this week's Tri-City Athlete of the
Week by the Oregon City Enterprise-Cour­
Lumsden, wrestling at 126, won two
key matches as he pinned Umpqua's Steve
Fosback in 3:23 and earned a fall over
Mt. Hood's J. Akgi in 4:00.
Among Ziegle's wins (14-3) was a 9-3
decision over Scott Hogge, Umpqua. Hogge,
while wrestling for Reedsport High School,
was a former triple crown winner in 1971.
Ziegle also pinned K. Wilson, Mt. Hood,
in 3:45.
Steve Morris, kept his undefeated season
(9-0) intact as he gained a decision (4-1)
over Kirk Whitehurst, Umpqua, and a 5-2
decision over Mike Ward, Mt. Hood.
Holliman, a wrestler who has really come
into his own this season (11-4) in the heavy­
weight position, was a winner over former
state champion out of Washington, Dave
Bartkowski, 4-3. He also won by forfeit,
With the losses of almost sure national,
or in the very least, state champions Mike
Bruton and Glen Hartmen, "The only way
that our team will finish well nationally is
if we really buckle down and go out each
night and get the job done," said coach
Norm Berney.
Looking ahead to the remainder of the
season, the Cougars face the same Umpqua
team in the team's first home match of the
season Friday night.
According to Coach Berney, "We'll really
have to wrestle heads up tonight in order
to win because of that tremendous revenge
For the Cougars, the match next Friday
carries much the same feeling as they face
Grays Harbor who was the only team to
beat the Cougars last year in league play.
However, the very next day could very
well determine the future of the Clackamas
Cougars for the 1977 season.
On Jan. 22 Clackamas hosts the largest
tournament in the Northwest this season.
Fifteen teams, 200 wrestlers, including 30
state champs, could determine how well
Clackamas will place in national rankings.
The tournament is also important be­
cause of the type of competition presented.

preparation for the Cougars' next two home meets. The grapplers host Gray!
tomorrow and Saturday, Jan. 22 CCC is holding an invitational meet with II
expected to compete.
Defending league champions Columbia Ba­
sin will be there. The Basin team gave up
only four points to the No. 1 nationally
ranked team, North Idaho in their last
encounter. Oregon State's J.V. team, Ore­
gon's J.V.'s, the University of Portland, and
all the teams from CCC's league plus six
out of seven schools from a Washington
conference will also attend.
"I feel that we have a real good shot at
winning that tournament if we wrestle up
to our ability," said Berney. A very inter­
esting fact was uncovered after the Cougars'
victory over the University of Oregon: the
Cougars had just won their 100th victory
and now own a 103-23 record, the best in
the state of Oregon. The Cougars' record
so far this season is 4-0.
Bowlers defeated
Clackamas Community College men's and
women's bowling team suffered shutout de­
feats at the hands of Lower Columbia Col­
lege last week in Longview, Wash.
The Lower Columbia bowlers turned in
consistant scores. They swept all three
games and the overall series for a 4-0 vic­
tory in both divisions.
The Clackamas women were led by Lor­
etta Marshall's 389 series and high game of
153. Marshall's series was well under her
best, however, as she scored a 467 series
earlier this year.
Paul Byers and Greg Monte paced the
Cougar men's team with 498 and 467 series,
respectively. Dave Flatau rolled his best
score of the year - a 443.
Despite the efforts, the Clackamas bow­
lers were unable to garner a point as they
were outclassed by the stronger lower Col­
umbia team. One Lower Columbia compe­
titor had an outstanding series score of
629 and a high game score of 258.
