I Monday Morning
By Jim Hackett
Sometimes, it's advantageous for sportswriters to read
the news accounts of other weekly newspapers. You find out
the other side of the story.
Take for instance, a story which appeared in the
Milton-Freewater Valley Herald on the Heppner-Milton-Freewater
Swim Meet.
"The team lost another close meet to the Heppner B
squad Monday in Heppner," but according to M-Fswim team
Coach Randy Grant, "The Heppner team was using different
rules than Milton-Freewater."
"They had some of their best people swimming in all five
events," he said, "The rules call for a maximum of three."
Grant said his team was entering individuals in a
maximum of three events and by the time he noticed it, it was
too late. Final score at Heppner was 215 to 214.
I haven't heard Heppner's side of the story but I hope
when the Milton-Freewater team returns, that the rules are
explained before the meet. I wouldn't take a position on this
one with a ten foot pole.
Well, turning to something less controversial, I had the
opportunity of attending the Oregon Open Money Horseshoe
Tournament held Saturday and Sunday in Hermiston. I
arrived at the less exciting moments of the tourney during
the running of the Class F portion of the event (the top
horseshoe players in the Northwest start in the A category),
but did enjoy the ringer action.
The high winds were lowering the percentages of the
tourney leaders and "Deadeye" Walter Williams, Jr., the
world's horseshoe pitching champion at 19 won the Open
Money tourney with a 10-1 record and only a 60.55 percentage
of ringers compared to his usual 86 percent average.
Herb Criss, Bremerton, was second in the tourney and
Walter Williams Jr.'s brother, Jeff Williams, was fifth. Both
brothers are from Chino, California.
For the win, Williams shot 396 ringers out of 654 shots and
had his best games right before the wind and rain struck with
two games at 84 percent ringers and after that 67 and 57
percent. He won a total of $510 and according to Bill Bighaus,
sports editor of the Hermiston Herald, has totaled about
$1,200 in winnings in the last four years of the tournament.
Horseshoe playing, as you can tell, is not on an equal par
with the money earned with the Professional Golfers
Association or tennis tournaments.
In talking with some of the horseshoe players, I learned a
great deal of their winnings go for travel expenses to
tournaments throughout the Northwest.
