page 4 February 1, 1979 Fun and frustration by Larry Keating Being a sports writer for a college newspaper, or for any paper, isn't the easiest task in the world. - It can be fun and itcan be totally frustrating. Butthrough it all a writer who is observant can learn a great deal about people and their actions. Writing, for The Advocate has been a learning experience. Although the staff is under-manned, the people do hard work for their three credits to get the paper out. As Sports Editor, I have had the chance to get involved with a great many of the school's teams and it is easy to write stories because just about all of the teams have winning seasons and make the playoffs. But as was stated, it can be frustrating. Having a limit of space, money and time can sometimes cause misprints and articles not being run. Fortunately, the people down in the gym and related areas - the coaches, and most importantly the athletes - have yet to lynch me (maybe because nobody knows me). So in the end I guess I would just like to thank all the sports related people around the campus for all their help and patience in helping me to maintain an up-to-date and precise sports page. Men's team sneaks by by Marshall Moss The highlight of last week's Men's Basketball action was BCC's win over Tacoma. Clutch shooting by John Yapp led the Helmsmen to a 64-60 come-from-behind victory at Tacoma CC last Saturday. The Helmsmen came back after a dismal start. They turned the ball over five of the first seven times they had possession. Tacoma led 7-2 and 17-10 in the early going. With four minutes to play in the first half field goal by Robert Nellums gave BCC it's first lead 24-23. But the lack of team defense and a three point play by Tacoma put them on top at the half 32-28. Tacoma came out after the intermission to increase their halftime lead 46-37 with 11 minutes remaining. With seven minutes to go, the Helmsmen had pared the lead down to 56-49. Then Larry Thomas, John Yapp, and Robert Nellums found the range. Kevin Lucas added some unusually tenacious rebounding to turn the tide for BCC. Thomas brought the Cagers within one point at the four minute mark. The teams exchanged baskets Until Nellums pumped one in to give BCC tennis buffs can rent covered courts at Robinswood Park.

After a Tacoma basket, two free throws by Blackburn put the game out of reach. That win brings the Helmsmen's record for league play to 6-3andput them in second place. This victory was the 199th in Bellevue's short history. The Cagers will be out after number 200 against Green River Wednesday and will travel to Edmonds on Saturday. Next Wednesday: league leading Everett. Intramural news In last week's ntramural basketball games the Lakers beat the Bullets to take the early league lead. The score was 53-40 with Ken Sallier scoring a torrid 22 for the winners and Marshall Moss throwing in 20 in the losing cause. The Blazers picked up a win over the Celtics 58-46. The Blazers were led once again by AI Landeck with 14, while Tod Anderson contributed 15 points for the losers. On Wednesday, the Rockets won over the Suns by a score of 52-48. This slips the Suns into the early season cellar. In the closest game of the week the Cavaliers squeaked out on overtime victory putting a tough 10ss on the Knicks record. The final score was 47-43 with Mike Pressinger hitting 16 for the Cavs. High man fro" the Knicks was Brian Nelson with 10. Players are still needed for the table tennis tourney. Co-ed volleyball on Tuesdays and Thursdays is becoming a very popular event.

The equipment runs the gamut from weight-lifting to badminton. On weekdays there is open gym from 12:15 to 1:30 pro. Mondays and Thursdays, two of the gym courts are filled with intramural basketball, and you can still sign up to play. The rest of the space is open to Volleyball, badminton and pickleball. The universal gym is available for weight training and the saunas are good for unwinding after your activities. The open gym is yours on weekends too. Saturdays the schedule is 10- 5 pm and Sundays 1-5 pro. The weight room and locker room are closed due to past vandalism. You can even bring a guest on these days, but they will be charged $1. BCC is offering racquetball/ handball classes for the first time this quarter. Racquetball courts are available Saturdays and Sundays from 2:30 to 4:30 pm to all students for $1 per person per hour. Two courts are rented by BCC from the Sonics Racquets Club in Redmond. Students sign up in the Intramural Office and you can even pick up a racquet, but bring your own balls. The Robinswood Park has covered tennis courts that can be yours from 3:30 to 5 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and on Sunday from 2:30 to 4 pm. The cost is $1 and, once again, you can get a racquet if you need one, but bring your own balls.

BCC racquetball players can rent courts at the Sonics Racquet Club in Redmond. Photo: Dennis Despite 3-1 record Women have yet toshine by Larry Keating "We haven't extended ourselves at both ends of the court in any game yet this season," Coach Thornton Perry stated about the women's basketball games. But thus far in league play, BCC Women's Basketball has opened with a 3-1 record, including victories over Skagit and Shoreline. January 20 the women scored a 76-63 victory over Skagit Valley CC. "Skagit started very quickly, but our squad played ,excellent defense and then we dominated the second half," said Coach Perry. Leading scorers for BCC were Gretchen Cook, 15 points; Shelli Horan, 12 points; and Sande Lowe with 12 points. Four days later BCC triumphed over a tough Shoreline squad 64-51. Coach Perry stated, "Shoreline played the best man-to-man defense we've seen all quarter." Leading a balanced scoring attack was Cheryl Ronholt, 17 points. Contributing off the boards were Vicki Burmeister and Teena Heeterle with 13 and 12 rebounds respectively. Also an important factor were the passes of Gretchen Cook who added 7 assists.
