Nampa finished in a lie for sixlh place with Highland when Ihe three-day meet at College of Southern Idaho was over, but Crespin and 'Dogs' Coach Kollie Lane were already ihinking about next year. "1 ihink we'll have a lot heller team," said Crespin as tie clulched Iris Slate medal, "A lol of the guys here who didn't place this lime will next year." Lane was smiling aboul the prospecls.

Cougar L'oacli LeKoy Inglis shook his head. "WJial have we got, four in Ihe finals and all four wrestling ammig Ihemsolves 1 .' Thai's a shame.

Now we hosl Ihe Ally Iwo learns lhal have a ; (Shance to lake Ihe Mile from us Â·mis weekend." '.3 Monlana can assure itself of at feast a lie for the Big Sky litle iilh a pair of wins tiexl Friday wrf.Saturday in Missoula. Thfi Grizzlies now have a game and a half lead over defending champion Idaho Stale. Boise Stale is aolher game hack. The Grizzlies hall run Ihtir conference mark lo D-fl by beating Boise State 81-66 Friday night in Boise. But Idaho Slain stayed in the race by handing Monlana its first conference loss of the year, -19-47 in Pocatclto Ihe noxl night. "We were jusl coming off a bout with the flu," said Idaho Slate coach Jim Killingsworth. "so we were glad to get any kind of a win. We'll lake anything in (he win column." Five of Killingswnrlh's Ren- gals had missed practice early lasl week, bul were back in lime for a pair of games againsl Monlana anil Monlana Slale. "I ihlnk we had U win Ihe Monlana game without going into overtime.

Bill, wilh Hayes boxed in by Ken McKcnzie in (he final seconds of Ihe Grizzly game, Keviri I Inyl had lo sink a jumper from the lop of Ihe keyhole al the buzzer (ogive the Bengals their two-poinl win. Hoyl finished wilh 10 points. Hayes had 23 to lead all scorers. The two wins gave ISU a 7-2 Big Sk, record, while Boise Stale is 6-1 AN HOUR OH SO I.ATKIi Inglis watched as Vassw turned a near-pin late in Ihe second round into a 7-2 victory over Kane and a Slale crown fur Caldwcll. "lie's oncgrcal kid," said l.ane laier. "I'm glad he \vun. He's really worked hard for il." Cecil was 30-s'going inio ihc meet and had wrestled most of i he year al 132. Before Districl, Inglis decided he jusl wasn'l heavy enough and shifted him down a notch. l-ant had a problem himjstlf when Crespin showed up (or practice Ihis year. He had Eddie While al IDS and the two were almost dead-even n wreslle-offs. Crespin look Ihe No. 1 spot eventually and gol upset early in Districl. \Vhite went onto Hie finals hut there was really no conflict. In fad, Lane says ilie two complemented each olher perfectly. SATURDAY NIGHT. Crespin found himself going againsl a man who was 28-0 in Hasmusscn. While had nearly beaten the liorali man in District, losing 13-9, and Dave was right there watching. "Kddic coming so close then really gave him a lol of confidence," said Lane. "Kddiediua good job here and he helped Dave, loo .. .They helped each otherihis season." Yon had lo peg Kasmussui as Ihc favorite when Ihc 'Â«'Â» squared off m the championship mat. There was a packed house al CSI, but few Dislrici Ihree fans. A small group from Nampa was there In cheer Crespin on. "1 KNK\V UK WAS unliualeii," said Crespin laier, "Bui I figured I had nothing to lose if I gave i I all I had. 1 knew he was good." Crespin proliably had a beiier idea when Has go! the takedown in Ihe first round on him for a 2-0 lead. "Nobody's ever dune lhal lo me before," he said. "Usually, ihal's where 1 gel my first points." In Ihe second round, Crespin came up wilh a good mnye to tic Ihe malch, 2-2, Kasmussen worked an csc'apeloimive ahead 3-2, Ihen Crespin reversed for a 1-X advanlage heading inlo Ihe third period. WHKX KASJ1USSKN got an escape himself lo lie il 4-4 and ihe clock licked away in ihc ihird period, ii was a mal icr of who would gei lhal last takedown. "1 knew il was gelling pielly close to ihe end of Ihe maich. If I could gel a lakcdown and jusl ride him. 1 ihiiuglil I'd have it." The clock showed abuul 35 seconds left when Crespin whirled around Kasmussen for the winning takedinvn. And jusl like he said he would, he rode il mil for the win. While Kasmussen anguished over the climax of what had been a pcrfeci season. Crespin looked surprisingly calm. His coach talked about poise. "He knew what he was doing," nodded Lane. "I thought he'd gel lhal first lakcdown. bul Rasmussen countered real well in ihc firn round. Dave wresiled a smart match." Afler laughing through Crespin's victory kiss and medal presentation. Lane talked about the learn. "We'KK NOT REAL disappointed in sixlh. We'd hoped fur some other places, bul we wraslled a lol in iliis lotiriianieni.
