Taralee makes All-State
Congratulations to Taralee
Suppah for making the states top ten
all-star selection during the state girls
basketball tournament which was
held in the Chiles Center of Portland
University, on March 10-14, 1998.
Taralee was selected on the second
five which is a great honor to be
recognized in such a large tournament
of 16 teams from across the state
vying for the championship.
With her consistency in scoring
all season and good team leadership
and her defensive play clearly shows
she deserved to be selected to the
All-Tournament team. All season
long when things started to look down
for the team Taralee would drill those
nets with her three point shots to get
the Buff gals back into the game.
We are all proud of her and will
miss her next year as she will
graduate this spring, but we do wish
her well in the future where ever she
goes to college.
The All-Tournament team:
First Team Mandie Little, Jr.
Central; ToranLundgres, Sr. Cascade;
Jamie Coldran, Jr. Marist; Sara Jones,
Sr. Rogue River; Jennifer Martell, Sr.
Second Team: Michelle Theuson.
Sr. Waldport; Anna Wallace, Sr. Cascade;

This game almost like the other
three prior to this the Buffs were
slow off the starting blocks. They
came into the game sooner than
the othergames, instead of trailing
at the end of the first quarter they
were ahead by the tune of 13-8,
over the Gold Beach Panthers,
who have a season record of, in
league 1 3-1 and for the season 23
2 record which is good in anyones
Jerold Rico kept the pace going
for the Buffs as he found the range
to collect 14 points in the first half
and continued to score all along.
In the second half both teams
played even in all departments
and when the quarter ended the
Buffs had scored 18 points while
the Panthers col lected 1 7, but they
still held onto a slim lead 45-41
overthe Buffaloes.at the beginning
of the fourth and final quarter. Just
eight minutes left for the Buffs to
either place fifth or eight, so the
battle went on.
In the final quarter the game
was neck and neck after the
Buffaloes took a little lead the
Panthers started to foul a lot to
where they lost their three point
shooter Alfonso Powers as he had
to leave the game with five fouls
with plenty time left , and a little
later on Tyson Crumley the big 6
7 Center made his exit from the
game VIA five fouls and this
opened things up a little for the
Buffs who pulled ahead
momentarily but just before the
final buzzer sounded the Gold
Beach Panthers were able to tie
the score and with time running

out the Buffs made a desperation
shot which bounced off the rim as
the buzzer sounded sending the
game into overtime.
The Buffs controlled the tip
and were off and running with
Rico putting a two pointer. Gold
Beach went cold in their shooting
and as Madras eased forward they
started fouling to stop the clock
but each time they fouled the ball
was in the hands of Miller and he
would step to the charity stripe

It was frustrating for the
Panthers as they were unable to
match the Madras White Buffaloes
in scoring in the overtime period.
Finally the time ran out on the
Panthers to give the Buffs the
Consolation trophy and fifth place
at state this year. The Gold Beach
Panthers left at eight place. It was
a real interesting trek for the Buffs
as each game was a hair raiser
where a person would think that
the Buffs would be eliminated,
but when the final buzzer sounded
the Buffs were right there.
