Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014 = Mason County Journal - Page B-1 Bulldogs battle Vikings Shelton tennis plays two page B-5 page B'3 Highdimbers will need to take advantage of opportunities to beat Central Kitsap By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncoun com Turnovers didn't cost Shel- ton the game Friday night. But they certainly played a role. "Our problem was we turned the ball over in the second half and that cost us some opportunities," Shel- ton head coach Matt Hinkle said. The Highclimbers gave up an early 20-14 lead over Wilson to lose 35-20 at High- climber Stadium. "The kids played fairly well for three quarters and they contained Wilson, who had good speed," Hinkle said. Wilson's comeback began halfway through the third quarter, when the Rams scored off an interception by Shelton senior quarterback Jake Beck with 6:15 remain- ing in the quarter. After a PAT, Wilson pulled ahead 21-20. The Highclimbers gave up two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Despite the loss, Hinkle praised the Highclimbers' ef- forts. "The kids did a good job of moving the chains," Hinkle said. "Defensively, the kids played the best game so far this year." Four of Shelton's five turn- overs were interceptions by Beck, who was 8-for-18 on the night for 70 yards and one touchdown. "Beck threw fairly well, but their pass coverage was pretty good," Hinkle said. Beck completed an 11-yard pass to senior fullback Brian Nault for a touchdown in the first quarter. Nault also scored on a 6-yard run. Senior running back Jake Henry scored the Highclimb- ers' first touchdown on a 2-yard run in the first quar- ter. see SHELTON, page B-6 Courtesy of 5hawn Donnelly z corn Knight's defensive working for the foot- So Mike Bateman changed it.

The Shelton senior swimmer wants two. At the 3A WIAA State Girls Swim- ming Championship last November, Womer broke the SHS school record in the 100-yard breaststroke, set- ting the mark at 1 minute, 12.29 seconds. "I really hope to get the school's 50- yard freestyle re- cord and go to state in the 50 and breast- stroke," Womer, 17, said. She's been swim- ming since she was Womer 7. Womer began swzmming competi- tively four years ago. "I heard about Quick Water Swim Club and I'd always liked swim- ming, so I joined the club," Womer said. Quick Water Swim Club is a Shel- ton-based community swim club. Womer said she loves everything about competing, but she has a new challenge this season that's preventing her from trying new events. "I found out I have asthma this season, so I've been sticking to the 50 (freestyle) and breaststroke," she said. The condition could also affect Womer's future with the sport. "With asthma, I don't know if I want to do swimming (in college) or just start school," she said. Womer added that if she decides to try swimming competitively in col- lege, she'd like to go to Linfield Col- lege in McMinnville, Oregon. see ATHLETE, page B-6 I
