RICH WALKER, Shelton's number one golfer, shot a 75 at Elma on Friday but his Highclimber team failed to qualify for state. The Wind lew... But... by CHARLES GAY Shelton's Highclimbers lived up to their 8-0 league record on the cinders when they won the subdistrict title in a stormy Olympia last Saturday by amassing 105 points to beat second place Aberdeen's 92 total. Rob Settle added to his lengthy list of records by snatching another in this meet. He sailed over the high jump bar set at 6'4" to break the old subdistrict record of 6'3". Settle took one of four Shelton firsts. Rocky Nutt made several points for the Climbers. The senior won the 180 yard low hurdles in a wind-hampered time of 22.6 (he holds the school record of 20.9), took third in the high hurdles and another third in the high jump. The weather for the meet was miserable. Wind and rain pelted the athletes, hampering times. The two meet records that were set were in field events. Shelton's mile relay team of Paul Rogerson, Chris Elmlund, Tracy Armstrong and George Lemagie, which holds the school record, won the subdistrict race with a 3:34.2 clocking. Lemagie battled it out with Aberdeen's Shannon Ferguson in the 440. Ferguson won in 52.1 seconds and Lemagie, the school record holder, finished second. The top four places from the subdistrict meet will compete in the district get-together next Saturday in Chehalis. From there, the two top placers will travel to State at the University of Washington on May 29. Senior Dave Knauf collected the Highclimbers' other first place. He tossed the javelin 162 feet, ten inches to beat the rest of the field. Team mate Clay Keith was third in the spear throwing to earn a trip to district. Settle, the subdistrict high jump winner, now holds two sophomore records, two junior class records, a school record, a Tumwater Invitational record, a subdistrict record, and shares high jump relays records with team mates at the Longview and Tomahawk Relays. He is a junior. Several other Highclimbers will make the trip to district in Chehalis. Tom Brigham, junior weightman, finished fourth in both the discus and shot put. Ostrander(NT), Kent(CE); 15.5.

The Blazers' A class had 112 points to Elma's 105, Centralia's 98 and Hood Canal's 45. Shelton's B class collected 178 points to 79% for Elma, 34 for Hood Canal and 32 for Centralia. The C class outscored the other three teams by getting 112 points to Elma's 101, Centralia's 65 and Hood Canal's 19. Elma was second overall with 286 points, Centralia had 196 and Hood Canal 98. Those who placed in the top four in the running events and top five in field events will go to the district meet at Hoquiam this Thursday, May 20. Steve Settle won the A class 100 and 180 for Shelton. He was also fourth in the long jump. Hood Canal's Tony Molinero ran away from the field in both the hurdles races. He was fourth in the high jump. Ray Wiltman got the only other first for Shelton in the A class. Wiltman tossed the discus 110'8" to win. Dave Bradley helped the A class effort with a second in the shot, third in the high hurdles and tie for third in the low hurdles. Marty Settle set a new school record in the B class 180. The speedster ran the distance in 19.8 im Spring is the season when experienced and novice boatmen alike begin scraping down hulls and decks, mending sails and painting and varnishing in preparation for a summer of boating enjoyment on the thousands of Washington lakes and rivers and miles of ocean waters. Unfortunately, the season and this preparation are only a foreboding of ill winds to come for those who may have their weekends ruined, or more tragically, lose their lives in boating accidents. Last year, the Coast Guard reported 3,803 boating accidents in the United States, accounting for the tragic loss of 1,418 lives. In addition to lives lost, 4,762 boats were da g d totaling $8,172,200 in property damage. In the last five Soph George Miller will go in the years, 6,740 people have died in boating accidents in the pole vault. He tied for fourth, nation; and $34,564,300 in property damage has been done Shelton's 880 relay team was to every type of boat, from the family six-foot dinghy to the fourth. Juniors Rich James and executive s 60-foot yacht. Mike Hays finished third and JUNIOR TIM FREDSON carded an 83 in Friday's district tournament. He is the Climbers' number two man. BOX SCORE free tickets to first base but tile Bears got out of the situation unhurt. In the second, Neal White walked to start off the Highclimbers' batting order. Doug Long advanced White with a single and White stole third to get into scoring position for Kevin Dorcy's sacrifice fly to left. The run made it a tie game at 1-1. One inning later, the Climbers scored again. Mike Nutt led off with a single and moved to third on Bill Bacon's single He scored on Duane Makoviney's sacrifice bunt. The scoreboard read 2-1 in Shelton's favor. 'Ferry Knight got the third Shelton run in the bottom of the fourth on Olympia mistakes. He was walked, took second on a wild pitch, third on another wild pitch, and went home on the catcher's error. Shelton held the 3-1 lead until the top of the seventh. The starting pitcher was Terry Knight. He had two men on with one out when he was relieved by Mike Johnson. Johnson walked another man and gave up two hits. He took the loss. Four Bears scored. The Climbers tried without success to get the needed runs back. Kevin Dorcy singled, sent to second base on a passed ball and stole third. Bill Bacon was hit by a pitch and stole second. These two were left stranded on the bases in the last of the seventh. It was the eleventh loss of the season for the horsehiders against five wins. Their next game is Monday, May 24 at Hoquiam. On May 26 they travel to Tumwater. ab r h bi Krumpols, Ray 2 0 0 0 Dorcy, Kevin 3 0 1 1 Nutt, Mike 1 I 1 0 Johnson, Mike 1 0 0 0 Bacon, Bill 3 0 I 0 Makoviney, Duane 2 0 0 1 Densley, Jim 3 0 1 0 White, Neal 2 1 0 0 Long, Doug 3 0 1 0 Knight, Terry 3 1 0 0 WP-Gary Beck, Olympia LP-Mike Johnson, Shelton Shelton's Highctimbers blew a 3-1 seventh inning lead and lost another league contest, 5-3, to Olympia on Loop Field last week.

HIIHIIHHIIHDHHHIWIHHHIIHlUUlIHIIIHIII Shelton's Highclimber golfers came in with a 350-stroke total in the district tournament at Elma's Oakridge course to finish out of the running for state competition. Nineteen teams competed for eight spots in the state tourney. Olympia led the way with a 308 card. Aberdeen was second at 312 and Tumwater next with a 316 total.

Gary Burger, theClimbers' ace half miler, was second in the 880. He has run a 2:02.1 as a senior. Some of the Climbers that placed in the meet will not go to district. Paul Rogerson was sixth in the 100. He will not run in that event but is a member of the mile relay team. Mark Lewis was sixth in the pole vault. He is a sophomore. Senior Don Gardner finished fifth in the 440. lte is an alternate for the mile relay squad. The meet's only triple winner was North Thurston's Devin Brown, also a star of the Shelton and Tumwater Invitationals. Brown broke a record in the long jump by going 22'7", won the triple jump with a hop, step and jump of 43'6" and edged Aberdeen's Gene Swor in the pole vault with a 13 foot spring. Tumwater's Bill Yandle found running against the wind difficult, but he still won the 100 and 220. The T-Bird, who has run a 10.2 100, covered that distance in 11 seconds flat and won the 220 with a 24.3 clocking. Shelton topped the other eight teams with its 105 point total. After Aberdeen came North Thurston with 61, Timberline with 56, Olympia had 54, Chehalis and Hoquiam scored 42 each, Tumwater 38 and Centralia 28. Here are the results of the subdistrict meet: I 00-Yandle(TU), Fawcett(NT), Champlin(Tl), Moilanen(A), Moreno(Tl), Paul Rogerson(S); 11.0. 220-Yandle(TU), Cham plin(Tl), Wilson(NT), Moilanen(A), Bureham(O), Fawcett(NT); 24.3. 440-Ferguson(A), G eorge: Lemagie(S), McCann(O), Bolam(A), Don Gardner(S),~ Summer(A); 52.1. 880-Garrett(CH), Gary Burger(S), Hays(A), Ames(O), Brown(TU), Brooks(O); 2:03.8. Mile-Trautman(TU), Bensching(CH), Rich James(S), Mike Hays(S), Smith(A), Cope(O); 4:40.2. 2 Mile-Crumrine(CH), Anderson(O), Peavey(A), Miller(A), James(S), Smith(A); 10: 09.4. H H-McCann(O), Postma(H), Rocky Nutt(S), Henry(A), These are remarkable totals when you consider that most people take to the water to get away from it all. In Washington last year, there was a total of 121 boating accidents which caused the deaths of 49 Washington boatmen and injured 18 others. Total property damage from the accidents totaled $305,700. In the last five years, people have died in boating accidents in Washington; and $1,973,300 in property damage has occurred. Coast Guard statistics clearly illustrate that in over half of the boating accidents, the operator was at fault. Vessels capsizing as a result of operator mishandling is by far the most consistent cause of lives lost in boating accidents. Chief among the operators' faults are improper loading or overloading of the boat, ignoring weather warnings and proceeding under unfavorable weather conditions, and operating in waters which exceed the limits of the craft and/or the operator's training or experience. Personal injuries in boating accidents are primarily caused by collision which is, again, the result of fault by the operator. The increasing popularity of water skiing and the failure of the boat's Operator to maintain a forward lookout is a dangerous combination on the water. The majority of the over $8 million in property damage to boats last year was caused by fires and explosions which were directly related to some fault of, again, the operator. Many of these, the Coast Guard points out, could have been prevented with proper ventilation equipment for fuel systems. A Coast Guard brochure dramatically illustrates the importance of proper ventilation when it describes 'the potential explosive force of one cup of gasoline spilled in the bilges as equal to 15 sticks of dynamite. It is evident from these statistics and a predicted record number of over 100,000 boats tooling around Washington's waterways and over 5,000,000 boats in the nation, tha! caution and common sense at the rudder and wheel could be lifesavers this summer.
