PAGE 6 SttELTON--MASON COUNTY JOURNAIN-Published in "Ohrstmatown, U.S.A.", Shelton, Washington Thursday, R-GOHD TRYSophomore Jim D. Anderson flicked the bar off with his left knee in an attempt to set a new Highclimber pole vault record at 12 feet during last Friday's Shelton-Central Kitsap track meet. Jim cleared 11' 6" easily with his bamboo pole. He will compete in the vault in Saturday night's 3rd annual Shelton I nvitational meet. JUST LAYING THEREJun- ior Ron Orr appears suspend- ed above high jump bar but he was really moving fast in his effort to clear 5' 8" in this shot. Along with George Johnson, he will represent the Highclimbers in the high jump n Saturday's big invitational track meet LONG HAUL Senior Bruce Gardner was all alone at the fin- ish but still straining hard for every split second as he won the mile for Shelton agains t Central Kitsap Friday: Bruce will compete in this event Sat- urday in the invitational meet, running against a top-flight field of competitors, some of whom have bettered 4:30 this year. STR A t ii  N GSopbornere Tom- my Lowe graphically demon- strates the supreme effort he puts into the finish of the 220 yard dash as he breaks the tape in victory for Shelton during last Friday's track meet. He al- so won the 100, but a strained leg muscle will keep him out of Saturday's big invitational meet.

GIVING HIS ALL 2 Senior weightman Gary Combs puts everyhting he can into a discus throw during last Friday's Slelton-Central Kitsap track meet. He won to remain undefeated this season. He will represent the Highclimbers in both the discus and shot Saturday in the 3rd annual Shelton Invitational track meet. COUGARS FALL TO HIGHGLIMBER POWER00 NORTH NEXT OH SHELTON TRACK SLATE Joe Waters. Gary Combs and Tommy Lowe each triumphed twice as they paced the Shelton Highelimbers to a surprisingly one i'ded 88-30 Olympic League track success over Central Kitsap here Friday. The Climbers lost only two of the 14 events, swept the high hurdles, high jump and pole vault earned first and second in the I00 and shot put, and placed two competitors in the quarter, half, mile. low hurdles and broad jump. In only the 220 and discus did they place only one competitor and in each case that man was the winner. Only the 440 and broad jump fell to the visiting Cougars, who had been expected to give the Climbers a fairly rough go. THIS NRIDA the Climbers head for North Kitsap for a final tune-up befoze hosting their third annual Invitational meet Satur- day night on Loop Field. Waters turned in the day's best mark when lie skimmed the 180- yard low hurdles in 21.8 seconds. He also won the highs in 17 flat. and finished a good day with a lead-off lap on the victorious 880 yard relay Learn. Combs won both weight events, Lowe both the spriflts. Gary shov- ed the shot out 46' 3" and sailed the discus 147' ,". Tommy took the century in 10.7 and the 220 in 23.8. Another fine mark was tum]ed in by sophomore Jim D. Anderson when he won the pole vault at 11'6". Ite tried for a school record at 12' bat missed narrowly, mainly because he didn't have a pole long enough. He was jumping with a bamboo stick, which after being set in the socket, was barely 11 feet high. 5im Lamont and Steve Archer helped make it a sweep. IN THE HIGH JUMP George Johnson. Gregg Souliere and Ron Orr all topped 5'6Ve" but John- son got the nod on fewer mis- ses. Two other Climbers, soph- omores Rich Wyatt and Duane Wilson, cleared 5'5". The high hur- dle sweep was accomplished when Jim Rutledge and Paul Sheller chased Waters across the line. Most thrilling finish of the day was in the mile relay, where an- chorman Jim Lamont, passed on the turn. fought back to win by a foot or two in a driving fin- ish. The 3:50.2 time was pretty de- cent, as was the 1:38.2 run by the half mile relay quartet, in which Terry LaBissoniere ran away from his rival anchorman in -the final lap.

The elimina- tions will be held in the sprints and hurdles, starting at 2:00 p.m. Among the competitors are some of the best track athletes in the state, and many of them wilt be going to the state meet in Pull- man next month. Outstanding, for example, is Bert Barto. the Mercer Island half-miler who last year won the Shelton Invitational 880 and then went on to set a new state record at Pullman at 1:53.1, a mart{ which tied the national junior rec- ord for the 'event. But Barto will be pressed, so classy is the field.
