(photo by Ron Howard) The Borah Senator, Boise, Idaho December 17, 1975 Freedom, no crowds-- cross country skiing by Sue Werry Freedom, inexpensiveness and not l+ighting crowds are tile l+avor - able aspects that are contributing to the growing interest in cross country skiing. "Popularity of the sport has been doubling every year," said Ray York of Sawtooth Mot|n- taincering in a recent Senator in- terview. "'The cross cotmtry skier is free to go where he wants to and take his lime enjoying na- ture or to do whatever he wants. "MANY SKIERS are chang- ing from downhill skiing to cross country to get away from the crowds and the waiting lines on the chair lifts," he added. Expenses are much less than for downhill skiing. For exam- pie, a pair of good downhill boots can cost its much as $150, whereas one can purchase all the equipment nettled for cross- country skiing for $150 al- together. Joe Greenley of Kazak Sports who was interviewed recently also, sltid that people can cross country ski anywhere that there is ,snow. "People in the Boise area can find a place if they take the road that goes behind chair three at Bogus," he addcd. Other places are Idaho City, which has special blocked off areas, and McCall where there is much open land. "SUN VALLEY is now plan- ning and opening trails for cross country skiing," added York. According It) him the nlilil danger of cross country skiing is getting lost. Cross cottntry is not so strcnttous its downhill skiing. There are nol as many chances of losing control and getting hurt. For people inlerested, Saw- tooth offers one day lessons which leach the fundamentals and how to car% for eqt, ipment. The cost ranges from $7 It) $12 depending on whcther equipment is rented. Anyone interested in joining a cross country ski group can con- tact the Boise Cross Country Club which goes on frequent trips, according to York.

"The youthful team shows signs of improvement as the juniors and sophomores lead the way," said Coach George Nakano. by Nancy Phillips Now. that Lion fall sports are over, boosters can'look forward to sitting in warm, stuffy gyms, witnessing basketball and wres- tling contests instead of watching football and cross country in the brisk autumn weather. Skiing is the only winter sport that the Lions will have to per- form in the cold outdoor ele- ments. Lion athletes have six different teams to offer for their boosters' enjoyment. Varsity, junior var- sity, sophomore and girls basket- ball and varsity and JV wrestling are all winter sports that will utilize the Borah gym. Sportsmanship and spirit were the two most prominent features of the fall athletic season. These two aspects are the basis for all sports. SPIRIT is what helped the football team on to their unde- feated season and in the end to the Southern Idaho Conference championship. The green and gold sections were always packed with en- thusiastic rooters and fans. Stu- dents not sitting in these sections also make themselves known at the crucial and jubilant times. Students supported the team with vibrant cheers and songs so often that the Lion grid squad al- ways knew that they were being backed by the student body al- most 100 percent. This spirit rub- bed off on the players and made them strive to become the best for themselves and their school. It helped make Borah No. 1 in foot- ball and it should not be allowed to die out. Cagers and wrestlers deserve the same respect that was shown to the football team. ALREADY, many students have commented on the atten- dance at the JV games and wres- tling matches.

This Year more students are attending activities instead of just parents. Last year mothers o{ the wrestlers were their own sons' "cheering section," but this year more students are get- ting involved to cheer their school on to victory. Continuation of the spirit shovn at the football games is necessary. Borah is still No. 1 to 'all the students who attend, but they need to prove it and show that they really do care about their teams, even when those teams are defeated. ge de Ri th St in wl bl Vars!ty gridders ,+ :+ rd receive awa s The varsity football season of- ficially ended Nov. 14 with Borah on top holding an 11-0 record.
