The Idaho free Press i The Mcws-Tribune, Wednesday. February 5.1973 - A-l Heat's on Nampa in District K.vJolmli.Killen Things could Le worse for the Bulldogs as Ihc dislricl lournamenl approaches. Nampa might not be the defending dislricl champ; or Ihc Hoise Valley League champion; or undefeated in duals all year; or champions of (he North-South Inviiational - but they are. Things could be worse, all right. But ihen again, Rullie Lane, coach of the Nampa High wrestling team, isn't counting any pins ahead of lime. "All the schools are going to be tough," says Lane of Hie entries in this week's District 111 Class A wreslling championships beginning Thursday in Payelle. "FIBSTOF All ONE OF the schools you have to look at is Capital. They have a good tournament learn." Thai's nol hard to support. Though the Eagles couldn't handle Nampa (or Caldwell or Vallivue, for that mallcn in dual compclilion during the regular season. Capital beat all those people - everybody but Pocalello to be exact - in the Southern Idaho Conference meet in Nampa three weeks back. "And Vallivue has some outstanding individuals," adds Lane. Another understatement The Falcons finished second to the Bulldogs in the Boise Valley League, throttling everyone else into submission with a wide array of wrestling talent from the 138-pound class on up. "And Caldwell has been good in tournaments, loo" muses Lane on the Cougars. Calrtwell finished just behind Ihe Bulldogs at ihe SIC and ran off with three individual winners, more than any other school in the league. The Cougs have been down and out with Ihe flu lately, and it may have cost Ihem their last two dual matches with Vallivue and Nampa. but returning health makes them a real factor. ,, "AND THKN TIIKRE'S 1IOIIAII - and Meridian too," reminds Lane. The Lions showed a lillle talent in Ibe SIC and are another team will: few real strong individuals if nol a lot of v depth. And the Warriors. They're Ihe team of the future. The - team with the coach (BruceBurnetl) that Dick Fteischmann, boss of Ihe pcrenia) win-il-all Poeatello Indians, predicts to 6 be one of the best wrestling coaches in the slate in a short * while, \ "Meridian may not be a real contender, but they'll sure r This Cat's surrounded have something to say aboul who is," cautions Lane. But still, Ihings could be worse. "Truthfully, our chances are real good," says Ihe coach of the learn lhat was number one learn when the district smoke cleared lasl year. "We have really good No, 2 people and lhal's a real advantage in this Ihing. We'll be the only (earn that'll be able to enler Iwo boys al every weight. And in some cases, I feel lhat we have boys al one weight, both of whom arc capable of winning." What Ihc tournament will determine besides the top (cam in the district is who and how many guys each school gels loscnd to the Stale tournamenl in Twin Falls next week. The lop (our finishers al each class made Ihe trip. The rest hnng up their sweals for another year. "YVK'RE PRETTY CONFIDENT, to tell the truth," says Lane. "Nobody has our depth. Of course we slill need for our No. 1 people to come through." Assuming that ihey do, some of the men thai have stood in the wings most of the year get I heir big chance. Some of those ace back-ups al Nampa include 96-pounder Greg Gourley, 105-pounder Eddie While (While wrestled top man most of ihe season), 126-pounder Mike Genlon, 155-pounder Tom Rowan, 167-pounder Steve Heath, 185-pounder Gary Heisch and heavyweight Bill Tilley. "A lot of Ihose kids are people llmt some learns would like to have as Iheir number one man," says Lane. Whatever happens, the talking ends and Ihe doing begins willi Ihe preliminaries at 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon in Payellc's "mini-dome," The firsl round goes al 6 p.m. Friday, round two starts al 4 p.m., and the first round of consolation gets down al 6 p.m. The second round of consolation is at 8 p.m. SATURDAY'S MATCHES START with consolation, round three al 2 p.m. and round four of consolation at 3:30 p.m. The finals gel down to it at 7p.m., Saturday evening, The total lisl of 10 compeling schools includes Borah, Capital, Boise, Mountain Home, Nampa, Caldwell, Vallivue, Emmell, Payetlc and Meridian. Admission for grade school and junior high is $1, and the same for high school students with activity cards. Students without cards pay 52, as do adulls.

Wilder doggin' it, ut beats Trojans ByJohnll.Killen JWILDEH--When you're 11-0 aild leading Ihe league, it's prclty tough to gel up for srlmebody you've already bi a'ten once. But nol thai hard. Wilder frund out Tuesday evening. S arting slow and "dogging it," ii the words of their coach, the V ildcats slill managed lo more 0 e step closer to Ihe Treasure V illey League litle wilh a 69-47 w n over the Nampa Christian T ojans. "We were dogging it, though," si id Wilder Coach Ferris Lynn. " 'hat was our worst game in 01 r last five or six." It wasn't unexpected. Nampa ' Oristian has been slruggling [(r some time in the league- Wilder is who the rest of the It igue has been struggling with. Wilder had beaten the Trojans b ' 25 points In Ihe first meeting h 'tween the two teams in N irnpa Christian's own gym. With the win Wilder moves to 1 -fl in the TVL and 14-3 overall » ille the Trojans are right in the middle ot Hie conference al 5-C and post a 8-9 overall mark. Whatever chance the Trojans might have had, Ihey losl it early when Ken Crow went lo ihe locker room wilh a badly sprained ankle late in the second q u a r t e r . Things got even tougher when outside threat Sam Everhart picked up his fourth foul early in the Ihird quarter. "We (ell that once Crow went, oul we could do pretty much what we wanted." said i.ynn. They did. "And Everharl getting into foul trouble hurt them quite a bil." fl did. Wilder cased oul fronl early, getting a 13-6 margin ihrough the firsl period mainly off Ihc shooting of Ray Gross. The Wildcats began to coast and Nampa Christian issued warning that ihey wcrcn'l out of il yd by pulling up close al 20-18 wilh about 4:« lefl in Ihe firsl half and staying within two right down lo aboul Ihe last minute in Ihc second quarter. Hut then Wilder started gelling some offense oul of Joe Salazar. Crow went down for Ihe count and just before half, Rverharl picked up foul No. 3. Wilder can clinch al leasl a tie (his Friday when Ihey enlerlain Ihc Melba Mustangs. Is it going to he a problem for I.ynn lo keep his learn Ihinking straight until district rolls aiounti?
