Out First Game at
Heppner"s Mustangs didn't last
long in the district tournament at
Arlington last week, as the Helix
five walked over them by a 35 to
21 score. Helix went on to win a

Others chosen by the judges were
Hawkins, Tergeson and Newtson
from the Helix squad; Hill and
Lindgren of Odell; Clough of Ar
lington; Sheard of Athena; Hiatt
of Umatilla and Lucianna of Echo.

Arlington, was beaten by a smaller
