Page 7 Jock talk Lions No. 1 in SIC by Nancy Phillips Varsity griddcrs set three unajor goals at the beginning of the 1975 season: beat Capital, es- tablish an undefeated record and become the new Southern Idaho Conference champions. The Lions accomplished all of their endeavors. Later in the season, Borah set a goal to defeat Highland, a needed victory to ensure the champion- ship. They once again came "through. The Lions ended the season with an 1 I-0 record, one game of which was a 31-22 victory over Capital. They regained the SIC crpwn for the first time since 1971. The seniors of this year's var- sity boast a 28-I three-year rec- ord with the single loss coming at the hands of the Capital Eagles last year. The Lions were de- feated 35-14. in their sophomore year, the senior gridders of this year relished an 8-0 record. The Lions displayed fine talent in every game this year. From the beginning of the season it seemed obvious that Borah would once again reign as the SIC champion and pave the way for future Lion teams to dominate the SIC. the unbeaten team? The new rule gives teams less incentive to strive for an undefeated season if there is a possibility fi)r them to be in the playoffs anyway. Perhaps the holder of the best record in the SIC should play the team with the best record in the northern portion of the state. Then, maybe, a true state champ- ion could be found. W-fly W-k-k Borah placed seven members of their Sovthern Idaho Confer- ence championship team on the All-City roster. Senior quarter- back Scott Richardson was sing- led out as the best signal-caller in Boise. He completed 82 of 141 passes for 1,433 yards and hit 58 percent of his passes for 17 touchdowns. Derek Rudd, one of Richard- son's favored receivers, captured a spot on the All-City team too. He caught 42 passes for 687 yards in regular season action. Hal Baird, a speedster from Borah, chalked up 931 yards as a running back to find his place on the team. Defensively, the Lions placed tour- linebacker, Bob Eason, end, Jeff Mooney, tackle, John ' ' ' ' ' Schreiner and safety, Mark MacGregor. The flew mandatory SIC play- off game rule is unfair and unreal- istic. Why should two teams, one undefeated and the other with a 9-1 record, play off for the number one spot when the reason the second team has one loss is because they were defeated by Honorable mention players named from the Borah offensive team were Ron Howard, Keith Pflegar, Greg Youmans and Ced- ric Minter. Ken Newman and Steve Belnap were the defensive choices from the Lion grid squad. by Kevin Butler "This is one of our great foot- ball teams," eon"lented coach Dec Pankratz after the Lions' 28-14 victory over the Highland Rams. THE KEY has always been to play and execute well and you'll win. Borah did that and much more. They went I I-0, the first time any Lion team has ac- complished that feat. Everyone could sense that Borah had the talent. "'Of cottrse we had some bad games -- everyone does. The dif- ference is the mental attitude of the kids," added Coach Pan- kratz. Attitude must' have been the prevailing factor since the Lion gridders squeezed by a tough Boise squad and handily defeated Pocateilo and Highland in their own backyards. Borah stopped Capital's running attack and froze Highland's passing ability in two games. They stymied de- lenses with their versatility and Trophy winners in the recent field hockey and volleyball competition are (back) Kris Ablin, Moat Award Valuable, and Laura Hibbs, Most Improved in field hockey; (front) Debbie Hall, Most Inspirational and winners Pare Davis, Most Valuable, volleyball. Missing is Shannon Russell, Most Improved, volleyball.

"Our compulsory were our strongest routines and were al- ways the biggest point Winners that kept us in the three," she said.
