GARY BURGER, who qualified for the Invitational this week in the 880, hits the tape here to win against Chehalis. His 2:02.1 clocking against Timberline on Tuesday put him in the Invitational for the second year in a row. O By CHARLES GAY Shelton's Highclimber thinclads scored their biggest win of the season last Friday on Loop Field over the Chehalis Bearcats, 107-38. The slaughter gave the Climbers their fifth league dual meet win without a loss. Besides taking 14 of 17 firsts, Shelton also took ten second and seven thirds. The Climbers swept the pole vault, and even though Rob Settle and Rocky Nutt did not high jump, Shelton swept that event. Settle, who has gone 6'6", and Nutt, who has cleared 6'0", are the Climbers' two leading high jumpers. Settle won the only event that he entered, the 120 yard high hurdles. Nutt won his only event, the low hurdles. The two were not entered in more events because they were to compete in the South Kitsap Invitational the next day. Tom Brigham, a junior, was Shelton's only double winner. He won the shot and discus. Brigham also ran a leg of the winning mile relay. Senior Chris Elmlund won the 220 and ran on two victorious relay teams. Paul Rogerson, another senior, won the 100 in 10.9 and ran in the winning 880 relay. The mile relay saw two teams from Shelton place in front of Chehalis, although only one team counted in the scoring. George Lemagie won the 440 and then anchored the mile relay team. Gary Burger was not pressed in his 880 yard run and he was far ahead of the field in 2:05.7. Burger was in the Invitational last year, but has had little competition this season to At Port Orchard Three Highclimber trackmen competed in the South Kitsap Invitational last Saturday. George Lemagie set a school record, Rob Settle placed second and Rocky Nutt performed commendably. Lemagie ran a 5 ! .0 in the 440 to set the new school mark. He won his heat but tied for fourth in the meet Setttc went 6'0" in the high jump to place second. It was a cold day for jumping. Settle has gone 6'6". Rocky Nutt ran the low hurdles in a fine time of 21.4, but hnished in the middle of his heat and did not qualify for the finals. ttc als,~ wenl 5'8" in the high jump but did not place. Several records should fall at the Eleventh Annual Shelton Invitational to be held this Saturday, May 1 on Loop Field. Many outstanding contestants with record-breaking qualifying times will compete. Two races that may be runaways are the hurdle races. Jerry Balur of Renton is ranked nationally in the low hurdles in 19.0. His closest competition may come from Lincoln's Bob Hall who is more than a second behind at 20.3. Shelton's Rocky Nutt will enter the low hurdles. He has a best of 21.2. Balur also has the best high hurdle time of 14.3. Mark Seaburg of Clover Park (14.7), Federal Way's Rick Judd (14.9) and Chris Hallmon of Washington (14.9) will be Balur's competition in the high hurdles. Both of Balur's marks are under the record times of the Invitational. Shelton also has two men in the high hurdles. Rocky Nutt and Rob Settle have qualified. Dana LeDuc of Washington has thrown the shot 61'". He stands as the man to beat in that event. His distance is almost a foot better than the Invitational record. Mark Smith, the state champion in the discus, will try to break the record in the discus. His 179'2" mark is about 12 feet over the present record. Smith is from Curtis. LeDuc also throws the discus over 167 feet and should give Smith some competition. In the high jump, the home town Climbers will be pulling for their junior entry, Rob Settle, who has gone 6'6". He is topped only by Joel Braggs of Lincoln who has gone 6'6". Braggs and Settle have the two best heights in the state. Lee Braach of Mount Rainier could also figure in the placing. He has a 6'5" jump to his credit. Still another entry who went 6'4" recently is Mike VanTongeren of Mark Morris. In the 100, three runners have top times that would tie the 10.0 record. Rolan Richmond of Port Angeles, Pat Clifton of Lincoln and Eric Iverson of Clover Park have qualified with 10.0 times. Richmond and Brian Siadak of Rogers have the best 220 times. Richmond is the leader with a 22.2 clocking and Siadak has a 22.6 to his credit. Another Shelton Highclimber entry is in the 440. George Lemagie has the second fastest qualifying time in the meet, a 51.0. The leader is over a second faster. He is Iverson of Clover Park with a 49.7 second time. Kevin Skittlethorpe of Clover Park can also motor. He has qualified in 51.2. Steve Phillips of Port Angeles looks like one of the leaders in the 880. He has run a 1:57.6 half mile. Dan Anderson of Renton (1:58.2) and Jim Brewster of Rogers (1:58.6) should also place near the top. Gary Burger is Shelton's entry in the 880. Dave Richard, a product of Mt. Tahoma, is'the pacesetter in the mile by four seconds. He has a top time of 4:25.2. Bob Skar and Willie Brown, both of Clover Park, have run 4:29.3 and 4:29.6 respectively. With a clocking more than six seconds better than his nearest rival, Leon Bombardier of Lincoln looks like the man to beat in the two mile. He has jogged the distance in 9:43. His biggest rival may be Jim Cendijas of Rogers who has *qualiffi d in 9!49.3. ' : , " pt~sh him. As a result, he has not broken 2:05. Sophomore Norb Huber went 5'8" to win the high jump. Dave Knauf, a first year senior, took the javelin throw with a toss of 151 '2". George Miller went 11 '6" in the pole vault to win. Junior Randy Endicott won the triple jump, going 39 feet even, and was second in the high hurdles. Other second place finishers for Shelton were Mike Hays in the mile, Tom Noreen in the long jump, highjumper Steve daze, Don Gardner in the 440, Chu'ck Hamstreet in the javelin, polevaulter Mark Lewis, Brad Oling in the shot, Rick Endicott in the triple jump and two miler Rich James. The Climbers' next meet is at home against Hoquiam this Friday. Saturday, Rob Settle, Rocky Nutt, George Lemagie and the mile relay team will compete in the Shelton Invitational.

He was immediately sent home by Kevin Dorcy who.ripped a home run. Although Duane Makoviney walked and Mike Nuti singled, no more Shelton runs came in.

Dorcy started the bottom of the third inning with a single to continue on his way to a perfect three for three day at the plate. He stole two bases and was squeeze-bunted home by Mike Nutt.
