[ Coach predicts SHS girls success page B-3 ATHLETE OF THE WEEK By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncoun com Adreanna Cheney has big plans. They include working with ani- mals. "I want to be a large animal veterinarian," the Shelton senior and girls bowl- ing team mem- ber said. "I want to primarily work with cows. There's a dire need for large animal veteri- narians." Cheney She's already been accepted to Washington State University and said she's always wanted to go into the medical field. "I've always loved math and sci- ence," Cheney said. "I thought of being a doctor, but I'm not really into working with people." Cheney learned she enjoyed working with horses, cows and sheep when she joined the high school FFA club last year. "I like cows more; they're cuter," she said. When Cheney begins working with large animals, she'll have some upper body strength to help her out:This is her third year bowling for Shelton and 3A Nar- rows League rules state she must use a ball that weighs 10 pounds or more. "I had two friends bowling my freshmen year and they said I should try it out," Cheney said about bowling. "I love the sport. I like how, when I'm on the lane, my head is clear and I just think about knocking down pins. It's fun. I don't care about winning, I just want to get better." Cheney bowled her best game Nov. 14, but it didn't count toward her career average: She was with a friend at Westside Lanes in Olym- pia. "I bowled a 189 and I was a little disappointed because I was so close to the 200 mark," Cheney said. "I'm kind of bothered it didn't happen with the team, but I understand why it did. I was more relaxed. I took a picture of it and showed it to my coach on Monday and he was really proud of me." see ATHLETE, page B-6 Shelton wrestling head coach Chris Lacy Annual challenge night begins at 5 p.m. Saturday By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncoun com This is Chris Lacy's 13th season as the head wrestling coach at Shelton High School.
