Tonight, five 1-0 teams Lebanon, Crescent Valley, South Salem, West Albany and Corvallis play five 0-1 teams McKay, North Salem, Boy can't play on a girls team Judge spikes coed volleyball The Associated Press GRANTS PASS - A judge has spiked a bid by Eric Dickerson, a North Valley High School senior, to play on the girls' volleyball team. "The interpretation urged by the plaintiff Prep highlights Page 4F of both the constitution and the statutes would have the net effect of requiring all sports teams to be coed teams," J. Loyd O'Neal, a Josephine County District Judge, wrote in the ruling issued Tuesday. "I find that it is not the intent of the consitution or the law," the judge said. "There is a legitimate rational basis for having some gender-determined teams. The reason behind girls-only teams not only addresses past historical inequities, but also is intended to ensure future equalities of athletic opportunity." Dickerson, 17, who plays fullback on North Valley's boys soccer team, had challenged an Oregon School Activities Association rule prohibiting boys from playing on girls' teams. Oregon high schools don't offer boys volleyball teams. - '"- Under association rules, if a boy plays on a girls' team in any sport, the team only can play other boys' teams. Defense attorney Don G. Swink argued in court Friday that the North Valley volleyball team would suffer if boys were allowed to play. Don Peterson, OSAA executive director, testified that allowing boys to play could destroy the girls' teams. Ron August Angels cut ties to Bend team Effect on the Salem Dodgers is uncertain From staff and wire reports The California Angels have ended their affiliation with the Bend Bucks and are interested in locating a team in Boise, Idaho, Jack Cain, Northwest League president, said. "That's who they are looking at is Boise," said Cain, who with his wife, Mary, owns the Bend club. "But they had to terminate with us before talking to them." Fred Kuenzi, Boise's general manager, said he had not been contacted by the Angels. Steve Ford, general manager of the Salem Dodgers, was asked if the Los Angeles Dodgers would be interested in moving their club to Bend. "There's always that chance, but I don't anticipate that," Ford said. There is speculation that Salem is in jeopardy of losing its affilia Outdoors Rivers Fisherman's river summary as provided by the National Weather Service: Station Ft Chg.

Lebanon takes on a Salem team for the second week in a row, as the Warriors visit McKay. One key for the Royal Scots will be to prevent Lebanon from making the big plays. The Warriors clinched their season-opening win Sept. 8 against Sprague with a 42-yard interception return.

Willamette University's Spec Keene Stadium has been mentioned as a possible site, but Ford said the chances do not look promising. "There has been no more contact since the end of the season; it's pretty well a no," he said. Ford said he was not surprised at the interest in Boise, which has operated as an independent team during its three seasons with the NWL, because of its new $1.6 million stadium. "That's the key," Ford said about the new facility. "There has been a lot of concern because of the travel from Boise, but that factor can take care of a lot of problems."

The Texas Rangers reportedly are interested in Bend, but only if the league expands from a 76-game schedule to 100 games. The league directors have voted in favor of the expansion but need the approval of the parent clubs. Bill Pereira, president of Diamond Sports Inc., owners of the Hawks, said they are exploring the possibility of aligning with a major league club, but have not ruled out remaining independent. The Hawks, who finished second in the league's Northern Division with a 35-40 record, drew 127,594 fans this year. That was an increase of 84 percent from 1988, when the Hawks played at Borah High School's Wigle Field.

Crescent Valley was led by running back Brian Mills, who scored two touchdowns. North Salem moved the ball at times during its loss a week ago to Corvallis, but the Vikings had trouble throwing when the Spartans clogged the line of scrimmage to shut down their running attack.

Molalla coach Ted Barker said: "She lives near some hills, and she runs there all the time. "We've been trying to get her to run from the front.

The loss mathematically eliminated the World Series champions from the National League West race. "It's something that when you're done playing, you can look back and say, 'Yeah, I had one 20-game season,'" said Scott (20-8). Craig Biggio drove in six runs with two homers, including his first grand slam in support of Scott.

Hype hovers around Irish vs. Michigan Gannett News Service ANN ARBOR, Mich. - The coaches plead for reason, the ads plead for tickets, the media plead for passes, and school officials 0 plead for sanity. Cougar what normal- suspended ly is a week of Page 4F healthy antici- pation has become a month of unbridled hype. A big game has become The Big Game. The Biggest Game. Ever. Notre Dame versus Michigan. No. 1 vs. No. 2. Lou vs. Bo. The Wolverines haven't lost in 10 games; the Fighting Irish haven't lost in 13. Jim Delany, Big Ten commissioner, kicked off the hyperbole last week, when he called Saturday's game at Michigan Stadium (3:40 p.m. EDT kickoff) "one of the biggest early games in the history of college sports." Michigan coach Bo Schem-bechler then reluctantly entered the fray: "You people have made such a big to-do about this game, it has become the biggest early-season game that I can recall in some time." Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz said: "I wish we didn't have to play such a big game so early in the season. Heck, I wish we didn't have to play such a big game so early in my career." Here's what makes it so big: More than 800 credentials have been issued to reporters, photographers, electronic media and press box personnel, making it the most covered game in Michigan history. It's' a meeting of the two most successful schools in college football history: Michigan has won 693 games, Notre Dame 672. The Wolverines lead the serieB, 13-7, but Schembechler is 4-5 against Notre Dame, including losses the past two years. Card fans fold Page 3F Scott said: "I haven't won 20 games. It takes nine guys out there to win a ballgame. We won 20 games when I was pitching, but I'm not out there striking out 27 guys or hitting the home runs." Scott's victory made him the majors' first 20-game winner this year and the fourth in Astros' history following Larry Dierker, J.R. Richard and Joe Niekro, who did it twice. The Dodgers' defeat, coupled with first-place San Francisco's victory, officially ended Los Angeles' hopes of winning another championship.
