Two weeks before the
NWAACC championships the
Cougar softball team completed a
light week, coming up with two
victories out of three games.
At Olympic they completed a
season sweep with two more vic­
tories of 9-0 and 11-1. It was a
strong offensive warmup to the
upcoming tournament.
In the first game Merry
Ferguson, Yvonne Johnson, and
Ann Kerr all went two for four in
the team’s effort of ten hits.
For the second game of the
series Jennifer McElroy went two
for four,while Fergusonwasa two
for three. Kerr rounded out the
strong hitting day going two for
The second game also saw the
first five batters score in the first
inning to push out to a quick lead
that was never in doubt.
Both pitchers had strong
games, with Johnson giving up two
hits and striking out four. Heather
McCorkle kept Olympic at bay
with a three-hitter in the second
On Friday the Cougars got a
chance to play Skagit Valley, one
of the Northern division teams
going to the tournament.
Although they suffered a 5-2
loss it was a well played game.
“Skagit played well. We just
didn’t get any breaks. We had some
really hard hits but they always
seem to go directly to a fielder. I
don’t feel too bad about the loss
because we also played well,”
commented Coach Paul Fiskum.
With the season completed
the team is now working hard in
preparation for this weekend’s
A few of the teams the Cou­
gars played against during the
season will be at the tournament.
One of the Cougar’s early
victories was a tough one against
Wenatchee, a Northern divi­
sion team, is an excellent defen­
sive team and the 2-0 victory that
the Cougars got could have gone
either way.
Highline and the Cougars split
their meetings and Highline took
second place in the Southern divi­
Although Clackamas took all
four meetings against Green River,
Fiskum feels that they are a threat
and are better then their record
“We are totally ready and the
team wishes it were happening
tomorrow. It is going to be a tough
tournament, and team playing
there could win it,” stated Fisloim.
The NWAACC championship
tournament is being held at Skagit
Valley College in Mt. Vernon,
Washington on May 26-27. The
Cougars’ first game is 4:30 p.m.

Clackamas finishes frustrating season, loses coach
by Mark A Borrelli
Sports Editor
A season of disappointment
which saw the Cougar baseball
team go 6-24 mercifully came to
an end Friday with a double-header
at Linn-Benton.
The first game saw the Road
Runners race off to a lead and
hold on for a 12-9 victory. Tim
Arendell pitched another strong
game in the second contest, as the
Cougars ended the season on a
bright note, winning 4-3.
The final game of the year
proved to be the final one also for
Coach Paul Roeder, who once
again decided to call it quits.
Roeder had retired last year, but
came back this season when Greg
Tagert was fired.
“I would only have come back
for one more year and this pro­
gram is going to be in a 2-3 year
rebuilding program, so it’s better
if someone else came in and started
rebuilding now,” said Roeder.
Clackamas suffered through
a nightmare season in which they
could manage to win only six games.
Roeder feels that recruiting and
lack of talent are the reasons for
the Cougars’ downfall.
“We didn’t have much talent.
We got started late recruiting
because they waited until one week
before school started to hire a
coach. All of the good kids went
somewhere else,” said Roeder.
Clackamas will be looking for
a coach to replace Roeder and is
hopeful of doing so as soon as
“We are trying to get together
with another department so we
will be able to offer a full time
position. Right now, we don’t
have a full time position available
in health or PE, so we are trying to
split a full time position between
coaching and teaching in another
department,” said Athletic Direc­
tor Carol Petersen.
“I encourage those who cal!
and are interested to write me a
formal letter of interest and when
I have a full time position open, I
will send a letter of the job open­
ing,” said Petersen.
