[" "" i';; ;i;e S i; O':/ ':i 'i H i - ........ 1 BY SUZANNE LEWI$ The (late is Feb. 18, 1967; the time, 7:30 p.m.; the place, the Capital High School gymnasium. The occasion is the State Wrestl- ing Championship. Wrestlers from schools all over Idaho have competed for the right to wrestle in these matches. Tonight the crowd will view the final evening of competition. AT THE SOUTH end of the stands we see the Capital pep band. Surrounding it is a multi- tude of Eagle fans. Boise High is also well represented on the north side. To the west, we see a handful of Borah supporters. Those there are the parents of the few Borah grapplers to make the final rounds and a pitiful scattering of loyal fans. When a Borah wrestler finally appears to compete, the Borah fans give out a squeek. To their dismay, the Eagle band begins to play a tune and the Lion wrestler goes into his match, fall- ing to realize that he has sup- port in the stands. When the final tally is made, we find that Borah did not rate first or second -- but lower. ARE WE GOING TO LET THIS TALE BECOME REAL- ITY ? IN ORDER for Borah's team to do well in state, it must have many winners out of district. The team, which already has a good record (8-1-1) will stand a better chance if it also has student support. To date, this support has been lacking. I predict if we have a good showing in the district meet, we will have at least six boys go to state. COME ON STUDENTS, let's SUPPORT the wrestlers and prove me right! ,,IqNIOR GARY I'()WFI,L nmneuvt:rs the hall Imst a Capital Eagh'. 1"he see-saw contest ended ill It 45-44 victory for the I,ions. Nampa hosts Lions in contest tonight Lion hoopsters will haul out their sneakers again tonight and travel to Nampa to meet the league-leading Bulldogs at 8 p,m. at the Nampa High gym. TIlE BULLDOG hold an 8-5 overall record and a 5-3 South- ern Idaho Conference record. Borah has played to a 4-3 con- ference record and an 8-4 over- all. Saturday night at 8 p.m. Green and Gold men will vie with the Caldwell Cougars at Capital High. Cougar Mike Garman will pro- vide the biggest threat to the Lions. The sharpshooting Cald- well senior has averaged about 20 points per game this season. Mark Lliteras, high point man for Borah, has totaled 143 points for a 11.9 average. Next week Borah will travel to Highland, Friday, and Twin Falls, Saturday. PANDEMONIUM FILLED the Capital High gym last Saturday night when the Lions in the last frantic four seconds, managed to shoot down the Capital Eagles, 45-44. Lanky junior Jim Cowan saved the day for the Lions with a field goal and a charity shot just M and D .', Barber Shop, ., corner of Overland and Roosevelt. WE SUPPORT YOU . . . WON'T YOU SUPPORT US? when the Borah team needed them most. Early in the fourth stanza, Borah fought to a lead, but lost it when the team was unable to hold the ball. At the 14 second mark, Capital took th ball and dunked it for a 44-42 lead. With just four seconds remain- ing, Coach Terry Conley called time out. At that time it seem- ed as if all hope had flown for the Lions. Then Jay Satterfield threw to t Mark Lliteras who tried to sink ] another two points. The shot ''j, missed but Cowan was up oith% rebound a split second before the buzzer to tie the score. In the process Cowan was fouled. When the cheering and roaring had stopped, Cowan stepped to the free throw line to put Borah ahead. In the previous night's play Borah had lost to Pocatello 51- 47.
