POLICE BLOTTER
Donn Pollard is happy with the
direction the boys' basetball pro-
gram is going, and the prospect of
how much further it can improve
this year.
But bettering last year’s 9-11
overall record with this season’s
young group won’t be an easy
task. And on top of that, Pollard
expects the Midwestern League
to be even tougher than a year
ago.
“Four teams have returning fi rst
team all-league players,” Pollard
said of Springfi eld with Keith
Reynolds, Sheldon and Dave
Dufort, North Eugene with Todd
Gressler, and North Bend and Ja-
son Younker. “So the quality of
the competition is real good.”
“Springfi eld won it last year
and they weren’t supposed to do
it until this year.”
Last winter, the Lions were one
of only two teams in the district
to topple the league champion
Millers. However, six seniors got
most of the playing time, leaving
Pollard with numerous holes to
fi ll.
“I feel we have good young tal-
ent and I’m looking forward to a
good year, but it will all depend
on how well we come along,” he
said.
The present squad has only
three seniors, none of which saw
any varsity action last season. The
strength of the team lies in eight
juniors, while two sophomores
round out the varsity unit. So if
none of the seniors have varsity
experience, where will the lead-
ership come from?
The coach is hoping his team
will overcome its youth with its
competitiveness. Pollard also
thinks the strengths of his team
are speed and quickness.
