Page B-6 - Mason County Journal - Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014 continued from page B-1 "They don't do scholarships but I've talked to the co-coach and he wants to see me swim," Womer said. "I didn't want to compete at the Division I level because it's so competitive. The next option was private colleges and Linfield is the closest that has a swimming program." Wherever Womer ends up studying next year, she said she wants to pursue a degree in physical therapy or in edu- cation. "I've always loved working with kids," she said. "I teach kids to swim right now." Last year, Womer was a student in the SHS class re- sponsible for teaching third- grade students how to swim. She said she'd liked to be a fifth-grade teacher and would also love to coach swimming. "If I do coach, I would want to swim in college because that would help me be a better coach," she said. Womer estimated that she probably spends 90 percent of her time in or around the wa- ter. "I work a lot as a lifeguard at the high school pool," she said. "I'm going to be a man- ager for the boys swim team in the winter. I'm also in first- period swim class." Hannah Womer Schoo/: Shelton High School Fall sport- Girls swimming Role model- "Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin. I remember watching her swim in the Olympics and wanting to be like that." If you could be any aquatic animal, what would you be and why?. "A dolphin. They seem to be so natural in the water. They're fast and I think it would be cool to be able to jump that high." Courtesy of Robert Dally Shelton junior wide receiver Gabe Reyna attempts to move up field Friday night during the Highclimbers' home loss to Wilson. continued from page B-1 Henry rushed for 146 yards on 34 car- ries. Wilson threw for 100 yards and col- lected 199 rushing yards. Defensively, Nault led the Highclimb- ers' efforts with seven tackles and three tackles for loss. The Highclimbers (1-4) face Central Kitsap (2-3) at 5 p.m. tomorrow at Silver- dale Stadium in Bremerton. Central Kitsap lost 3-0 Friday at Capital. "Defensively, they played real well (at Capital)," Hinkle said. "They have good athletes and are sound fundamentally." He said Central Kitsap is stingy defen- sively. "We need to move the chains and seize opportunities. Special teams play a key role in games like this," Hinkle said. Hinkle said that improvement by the whole Shelton team will dictate its suc- cess tomorrow. "We need to move the chains and seize opportunities, Special teams piny a key role in games like this," Matt Hinkle, SHS head football coach .S continued from page B- 1 "We expanded the of- fense more and hardly huddled at all to speed things up because we weren't getting to the line of scrimmage soon enough," Bateman said. "We gave (senior quar- terback James Ander- son) more leeway with changing plays at the line." The fast strategy kept Oakville from sub- bing players out as of- ten as they could have, he explained. "James did an 'ex- cellent job with call- ing plays," Bateman said. Anderson was 4-for- 11 for 83 yards. He also carried the ball three times for 19 yards. Senior running back Adam Pais was an of- fensive force. He rushed for 95 yards on eight carries and scored two touchdowns. Junior Taylor Diggle added 65 yards on carries and scored o~e touchdown. Running back Jason Kenyon, an eighth-grad- er, rushed for 53 yards on 11 carries, while ju- nior Mathew Thompson had 22 yards on five car- ries. Thompson also was Anderson's most tar- geted receiver. He made three catches for 44 yards, while senior Austin Renecker had one reception for 63 yards. Bateman said he plans to continue the offensive changes into this week's game. The Owls (2-3) play at 7 p.m. tomorrow at Naselle (4-1). "Naselle will prob- ably be our tough- est game," Bateman said. "They came down from an ll-man team last year because the school's population dropped, but the team has 24 guys on it. I've heard they're pretty: big with plenty of subs." Bateman said the game against the Com- ets and the rest of the regular season games are the most important of the season. "This is the part of the schedule that mat- ters," he said. "From Oakville on, these are the schools in the In- dependent League. Now's the time to turn it around if we want to play in the postsea- son."
