Ihc Caldwell coach. Inglis himself had to stay home from school Monday, another .victim of Ihe bug. .. "But as things stand now, we'll really be a| a disadvantage unless tit least a couple of those kids are better by match-time. I .don't really (Kink t h a t ' s likely if they feel .as bad as I do." · Two of Hie wrestlers affected by the disease are first learners and they both come out of Caldwell's strong area, the .lighter weights. Reed Buhler H12I and Chris Inglis (981 figured lo be thorns in Ihe side of Ihe Kalcons, whose strength lies in Ihe higher weigh! classes. C'ougar Mike Young is out as well. Mefme Infills'revelalirm. l/allivue (toll Hay Sehnabel predicted a m a t c h along ltu same lines as Ihe Vallivuc-Nampa dual which Natnpa w o n :li-2i. ·'They're slrong in Uie same places Ifiat N'ampa is-anri they have some i n d i v i d u a l s in the upper w e i g h t s who could pi-eve lo be d i f f i c u l t for us as well."

"There's always (he possibility thai He could come t h r o u g h in the upper and gel a few w i n s (mm our back-up people in the lower weighls. but it's unlikely." says Inglis. "If at least one of Ihose sick kids doesn't gel belter, we'll probably have to forfeit at least one weigh! on lop of everything else." One of the prime match-tips l h a l so far tmsn'l been affected by Ihe flu is al 119 where Vallivue's liudy C'edillo faces Dave A l i e n . The I w o have met onlv imce Ibis season, in (he C a l d w e l l Chrisfmas Invitational. That lime. C'edillo went oul front of Allen fi-n bill eventually lost Ihe match. Allen also bcal Cedillo in dislricl cnmpelilion last spriiiK. This year C'edillo is 19-4 and the Snake River Valley league champ, while Allen is 'i'i-i anil Ihe SIC champion. The mi-cling is especially imporlanl in Ihe linise Valley League tvli'ci'e ('aldit'ell is tied for first with undefeated Nampa and V a l l i v u e is righl behind with one loss. "This one is very important in I h e ' standings." says Sehnabel, "especially since we don't have Nampa again Ihis vear." Another key meeting, especially in light nf Ibe sick situation, is at 167 where Vallivue ace Mike Wilson faces Brad Hrauiior. one of Caldwell's better hopes. It's a gooil thing lhal Inglis didn'l hear Schnabel's health report on the Kalcons. It might have shol his temperature up even move. "Actually, we're pretty healthy riglil now. No problems to speak of." For Nampa High girls Winning's a habit Caldwell's Dave Allen (on lop here and about to claim another win) gets another meeting with Vallivue ace Rudy Cedillo in tonight's Falcon-Cougar dual at Cbifgar Cavern. Allen beat Cedillo earlier in'the year in the Caldwell Invitational. NAMPA -- If you've followed Nampa High women's sports this year, you know that clinching the conference basketball title was really no big deal. They've been clinching one championship or another all year. "It's created a winning attitude," says LaVeta Swealt of . the program's success. "I think the basketball team is trying to uphold the standards set by Ihe other squads." Going into the District Tournament at Caldwell which begins Saturday, Swealt's team is one of the favorites off its 7-1 SIC season. A lot of Ihe lalenl Ibat helped win field hockey and volleyball crowns is on the roundball unit and that" alone makes Nampa one of Ihe choices at District. "It also puts a lot of pressure on the girls," says Sweall. "Tourneys dostrange (hings to people. It alt depends on how Ihe girls react." The clincher during the regular season was last week's come-from-behind, 39-31 win against Capital's team in Boise Consistency from a couple front-liners and an added boost from the bench swayed Ihe game towards the Nampa women. Julie Ncwby had eight points and teamed with starling center Peggy Painter lo win t!ie backboard battle while Jonie Scheffert, an alternate forward, came through with her best scoring nighl of the season with nine points. The one loss in league competition came in Boise against Boise High, 3fi-26. It was a bad night ail around for Nampa and it hurt worse because Sweall's charges had beaten the Braves rather handily, al home.' In a practice game'thai began the season, the powerful Middlelon team beat Nampa 4-1-36 and the Viking girls, like . Boise, are considered prime threats when District gets underway. The format calls (or games on Feb. I. (Saturday) Feb. 3, Feb. -I, and Feb. 7, or next Friday nighl. Nampa opens action on Monday at 3:30 against the winner of this Saturday's second game, probably either Hoisc or Capital. Sweatl may have an advantage over some of the other coaches in Ihe 12-team field. She's begun to get good performances off her bench and the deplh is starting to pay off. Backcourl slarlers Becky Johnson and Carrie Hughartare both good ballhandlers and adept at stealing Ihe ball. The bonus is Ihe play of alternate Chris Freilag. "She's really come along, especially offensively," says Sweatl. "It's helped us oul wilh Ihose three switching with each other." Hughart and Freitagarc only sophomores while Hugharl is one of (wo veteran seniors. I'aintcr, at C-l nol the lallesl center around but good at herself, has 69 rebounds from her post position She's started every game. Die wings are Julie Ncwby, a senior, and Valerie Jones, a junior. Julie is an excellent shooter and leads Ihe team with 84 poinls, almost 10 a game. Jones is an aggressive defense player, a must for Nampa because Sweatt has them working out of a zone most of Ihe lime wilh the emphasis on the fast break. Schefferl can be used to spell either Newby or Jones and her offensive potential is excellent. "Dislricl is going lo be tough." smiles Sweall, "we'll have to pliiy our best basketball." fJAMPAln'GK S T A T I S T I C S Through ni negames SCORING -- Berkr Johnio* 41 jnd 7.0; Carrie Hughart 41 add i.O; Peqgr Painler 4i and S.O; Julie Ne*by N and Valerie Jones 17 ar.d 1.0; Mary Ann Wise4 and 1 Or Jonie Scherfe/t41ani4.9: Chris Freilag 43 a rid 4 I; Carol Smilh 4.

"We've only had the program here I wo years." said Bill Knox Monday afternoon. "I'm going wilh a lot of younger kids, jusl one senior on Ihe team, and it's basically a matter of exposure." "We're trying to get the kids interested," says K n o x . a graduate of Caldwell High and Boise Stale. "We're trying to get something from each match." Against Nampa. they'll most likely gel a lopsided loss, unless 'Dogs Coach flollie Lane dips inlo his junior varsity.

The Falcons, last in the league in offense last season, traded star tackle George Kunz and their No. 1 pick to Baltimore for Ihe right to draft Bartkowski, a 6-foot-I, 215-pounder from Santa Clara, Calif. His selection breaks a three-year hold by the No. 1 slot,by defensive linemen. Bartkowski played mostly as a reserve the last two years and got his chance when Vince Ferragamo. last year's No. 1 quarterback, (ran/erred to Nebraska. He made the most of it. Bartkowski. who also is regarded as an outstanding baseball prospect, completed 182-of-325 passes for 2,550 yards and 12 touchdowns in leading California to a 7-3-1 record. He also ranked third in total offense with an average of 217.0 yards per game. He had only seven passes intcrccpled, Ihe lowest figure among the nation's top 20 passers, and averaged 16.5 completions per game. Barlkowski also was the No. l pick of baseball's Kansas City- Royals when he finished high school. In Atlanta, Bartkowski said "I'm looking forward to the challenge. I hop* to bring a change of attitude. There's no substitue for winning. The Dallas Cowboys, using a choice obtained from Ihe New York Giants for quarterback Craig Morion, selected Randy While, the lineman of the year from Maryland.

"Of course, Ihc i n c e n t i v e won't be there as much with the possibility of getting inlo the playoffs now." admitted Burwick from Lcwislon Monday nighi.

"I expect us to be psyched and ready to go for George Fox. We have to be." It was a slrange road trip. jNNC played well at Whilman and nearly beat a learn thal's losl jusl three home games in three years. Whitworth was a different story. After a halflime lie, Ihc Crusaders came unglued. It was one of those nighls when Burwick wanted to jump off the edge of the bench. He wanted lo against Lewis- Clark State, but for n different reason. His Kung-Fuers were whistled to death as much as Ihey were outplayed by LCSC. There were 37 fouls called on NNC and the Warriors gol 45 attempts from the line. "The refs wouldn't allow any The Warriors, who had beaten NNC in Nampa early in (he season, played just about as well. "They pressed much of the game and it did create a few problems," said lhe NN'C coach. "Bui I just have to feel lhat il would have been a much closer ballgame with our big guys in there. I don't know if we'd have won, Ihough. They played a scrappy game." In (he lasl five m i n u t e s Burwick had four backcourl men on the floor and Ihe Warriors really lurned it on inside (o spread (he score. M a r t i n e z was the scoring leader again wilh 17 poinls and he had 56 for the Ihree-game sland. Ken Wesche had 12 while Fritz Jenkins, Lee, and Doug Tuesday and Burwick ,,;,., scheduled a shorl workoul for Wednesday in preparation for George Fox. contact at all inside," said Wilson contributed 10 apiece Burwick. "For the firsl lime all The Crusaders w i l l resi season, I lost my composure out Tuesday and Burwick ha there. I gol a liltle mad." ' ' · Once again, Ihe Crusaders played a good first half, and when Ihey broke a f t e r intermission il was 45-15 largely because Joe Martinez and Ken Wesche were having hot hands. When it became obvious lhal nobody was going lo gel away wilh much u n d e r n e a t h , Ihe Warriors began driving, and it look a toll righl away. Darl Bruner was gone with five fouls wilh eight minutes left and 6-9 Randy Lee, the man fighting off the aggressive l.CSC team on lhe boards, was put oul of action a minute later. "Four other guys had four fouls," said Burwick, "And Ihey all had lo play a bit cautiously. That took a little bite out of our defense." I! was still a good ballgame unlil the six-minule mark when Al Felhenhauer and Phil Hendley began warming up from the field. NiNC fell down by seven points, "And then i! jusl kinda crept up on us," shrugged Burwick. "They started pulling away."
