MHS new baseball
Ken Billingsley coaching third
Head baseball coach at Madras
High School is Ken Billingsley, a
Madras High School graduate. A
fomer college and semi-pro player,
Billingsley, has lots of knowledge of
the. fame; of baseball plus being, a
high school teacher for 14 years he
knows how to reach the youth.
After graduating in 1973,
Billingsley went to school in Arizona,
"I felt honored to have the chance to
play on the college team because I
made the team as a walk-on, while
the other 24 guys had scholarships to
play baseball. I played for year one
before injuring my ankle, I had to
choose either to have surgery or put it
in a cast. I decide to put a cast on, We
were in the middle of playoffs and
during, our first playoff game, I
reinjured it so my college career
ended. I then went on to play on a
semi-pro team for a couple of years,
then I started to play fast-pitch
softball. This was a good experiece
to meet a lot of good people."
Billingsley added "I also started
to teach. I was a teacher for 14 years.
The last couple of years I started a
youth baseball team, but due to the
weather in South Dakota, we could
not play that many games.
"When I heard about this job, I
could not pass it up, I have always
wanted to do this and graduating from
Madras makes it even more special. I
plan to stay here as long as the school
will have me. I want to start a summer
program to help develop the skills of
the kids and the more games they
play the better they will get,"

Tips From The Pro
Wind: As spring arrives so does
the wind. Here are a few quick
reminders that may help survive the
Going downwind the wind will
straighten your shot as well as take a
lot of backspin Off the ball. So while
your tee shots will run more, so will
your approaches, pitches, and chips
into the ens. So plan for more run
on the greens. I also recommend
teeing off with a three wood for two
reasons, 1) You will get the ball up
in the wind so it can ride it and 2) The
driver puts the least amount of
backspin on a ball so a strong tail wind
can actually knock a driver down.
Into the wind the number one
thing to remember is to sw ing easy,
lead by as many as 30 to 40 points
and Warm Springs buttling back tol
make a game of it. Luke Spotted Bear
poured in 40 points for the winners'
and for Warm Springs Scott Moses
had 23, Scott Riddle scored 22 oncj
Jake Suppah added 20. Coaches were;
Austin Greene and Fred Rabbit
Game 17, the third place gamp
had LaConner defeating Tulalip by
the score of 1 1 1 -100 and taking homq
third place. High scorers were Greg
Factor and David Factor with 22,
points apiece respectively. Joe Pruc
scored 30 points for Tulalip. Coaches!
were Marvin Wilbur Sr. and Harold
In the championship game Lapwai
kept its winning ways and defeated
Pendleton by the score of 1 27-1 13.
Greg Jose and team kept making the
three point baskets and were
unstoppable as they went to repeated

you have all heard it, now let me
explain why. The harder you hit a
shot the more spin you will put on it,
the harder the wind blows the more
your mistakes are magnified. A little
slice becomes big, a little hook goes
out of control. By swinging easier
you will put less spin on the ball!
letting it bore through the wind much
easier, and keeping those errant shots
on course. The good news is your
chips and pitches will stop quicker,
so you can throw those aggressively
at the hole.
; In any strong wind you may try to
widen your stance so you are able to
keep your balance on all shots. Other
than that be patient and remember it
is a game.
