College, stretching their winning
streak-to six games.
Jenny ■ Topham- contin­
ued her steady play in the game
against PCC. She scored 20 points,
collected 13 reboundsand dished
out six assists.
“Jenny led the way,”
Head;’Coachz Kim Spaulding
' Sheri Wehling also came
on strong for the Cougars with 18
points. Shawna McComb hit for
10 points. Jill Warrington and
Janell Temple each- chipped in
eight. • .
The Cougars beat Port­
land 73-55,but Spaulding wasn’t
entirely pleased with the game.
“We didn’t play well.
We just kind of played at their
level and pulled off a win,” she
Spaulding was extremely
pleased with her team’sperform-
ance against Lane Saturday.
“We were hot,” Spaulding ex­
claimed. CCC beat the tough
Lane team 77-68. .
Topham posted impres­
sive stats once again. She was 10
of 16 froroi.the field and finished
off the night with 30 points, 12
rebounds and five steals.
Wehling scored 12 points
and had a team-high four assists
and Temple had 11 points.
Clackamas went into
halftime with a 10-point lead, but
Lane came on strong in the be­
ginning of the second half.
. “We let down right after
halftime and they cut the lead to
two,” Spaulding explained.
Clackamasfought back
by hittinglhree consecutive three
pointers. ■
=5 »/After that we never
looked back,” Spaulding said.
r She praised Kristie
Prieskom, Temple and Warring­
ton-for their defensive efforts
during the game against Lane.
“Our defense is carry­
ing us,” Spaulding explained.
She also said that their
offensive attack is obviously led
by Topham and Wehling, but the
rest of the scoring is pretty spread
out. Everyone is stepping up and
doing a good job. •
The wins> against Lane
and Portland were good enough
to put the team in a tie with Lane
for second place in league. The
Cougars currently boast a 7-3
league record.
Clackamas will travel to
first place Mt. Hood Community
College tonight. They host the
fourth-place Umpqua Community

The Clackamas wres­
tling team won three of four dual
meets Saturday in finishing third
at the Northwest Community
College Dual Meet Tournament
at Highline Community College
in Des Moines, Wash.
“Everyone wrestled tre­
mendously on Saturday,” com­
mented an exuberant Coach Jim
Jackson. “Everyone is peaking
at just the right time, and I be­
lieve that , we are ready for re­
Nathan Sullivan and
Jason Baurer both won all three
of their matches and both “looked
fabulous,” according to Jackson.
Travis Bonneau dominated his
opponents in his two matches,
and even though Carl Hensley
split his two matches, losing one
in sudden-death overtime, his
coach was overwhelming in his
praise of Hensley.
“Carl is looking as good
as he has all year. I just can’t say
enough about what he and his
teammates are accomplishing at
this point of the season.”
Jackson also had great
things to say about those wres­
tlers who are not going to be
wrestling in the regional tourna­
“Dean Roth, Sam Fed­
erico, Adam Reese and Derek
Puckett are the ones that stand
out. These four guys did every­
thing and more of what myself
and (Assistant) Coach (Mike)
Huluska asked them to do. They
all filled a number of empty holes
whenever we needed them to do
so, even when they had to move
up a weight class. Coach Huluska
and I are so proud of these guys,
as well as the rest of the team. It '
is just too bad that their season is
now over/’ Jackson said.
Next up for the Cougars
is the Region 18 Championships,
to be held this weekend at North­
west Colorado Community Col­
lege in Rangely, Colo. Clacka­
mas will be sending eight wres­
tlers to this meet, and Jackson is
very confident that his guys will
do well.
“We just can’t wait for
them to begin. We have no doubt
that if the guys stay focused and
wrestle to the best of their ability,
every one of these guys can move
on to the national tournament,”
he said.
The wrestlers that will
be competing in Colorado on.
Saturday include Blake Tomp­
kins at 134 lbs., Chad Westover
at 142 lbs., David Evans at 150
lbs., Doug Maddux at 158 lbs.,
Bonneau at 167 lbs., Hensley at
177 lbs., Baurer at 190 lbs. and
Sullivan at heavyweight.
The top three finishers
in each weight class at the Re­
gion 18 tournament will move on
to the National Junior College
Athletic Association champion­
ships, Feb. 26 and 27 in Bis-
marck, N.D.
Track teams to compete at Oregon Indoor
The CCC women’s and men's track teams will
compete at Portland’s Memorial Coliseum on Fri.,
Feb. 19. The meet will begin at 8:30 a.m.
