Page 16 PORTS IT T'ra - February 29, 2012 I00ick Hall signs letter to run track at Lane CC Nick Hall, a two-time district champion in cross-country for Sweet Home and one of the Hus- kies' most versatile track athletes, signed a letter of intent Wednes- day, Feb. 22, to compet e at Lane Community College. Flanked by his father and stepmother, Michael and Miri Hall coaches Billy Snow and Jim Kistner, and former teammate and now assistant coach Jake Corn- stock, Hall signed to compete with the Titans to the applause of classmates and teachers. Hall, a senior, said he decid- ed on LCC because it is relatively close to home and he liked the fed of the program there. "The track team and coach- ing staff were like we are here," he said. "They treat each other like family. I was looking for that in a track program." He said he doesn't plan to run cross-country at Lane, but hopes to get his times down enough to eventually be able to run at the University of Oregon. He said he will probably focus on the 800 in college. Kistner, who'has coached Hall to four district championships in the 400 and the 300 hurdles as a sophomore and junior, called Hall a "great, great competitor." "He puts everything into it," he said. "He works hard and he takes things very seriously. "He could further develop and be a real force." Hall said he was contacted by LCC coaches soon after this year's Sky-Em District cross- country championships, which were held at the school. He also heard from several other schools, he said. He said his goal is to be- come an athletic training or pos- sibly a nurse. Kistner said LCC is "a great fit for Hall." "His range is real extensive, He can run anything from the 800 to the 3,000, plus he's a hurdler. Billyand I always debated where to put him."

She was followed by Kendell Anderson with 36 and Whitfield with 34. Jasmin Yoder received the Ms. Hustle Award. She always competed to be first in everything, Robinson said. If the team was sprinting, she was moving at full speed. The game would start, _and she was non-stop action. Amanda Hubbard received the Coaches Choice Award, which, Robinson said, goes to the player does the extras. She is involved in more sports and spreads herself thin with activities. She is always there when a coach asks for something. The award winners were select- ed by the coaching staff. "We personally loved every minute of the year," Robinson said. "Yeah. it's discouraging to lose, but being around these young women energizes a person." The JV2 finished the year after a lot of close games and defeated Junction City in overtime at the end. The JVI had a three-game winning streak over Christmas break, won an overtime game against Sisters and ended with a win at home against La Pine.

The girls were usually mis- matched in size and ideally wanted to avoid a slow-half-court game where their opponents could use their height to grab boards. In their last three games, the Huskies took 50 two-point shots and 33 three-point shots, more than 80 per game, Robinson said. They were shooting, and with that the percent- ages will come. "We received probably four -or five e-mails during the year just congratulating our girls for never quitting," Robinson said. The Junc- tion City coach, whose team was on the way to playoffs, told Robinson the girls had improved substantially between their first and second con- tests. Receiving varsity letters were seniors Rubidoux and Whitfield, their fourth each. Yoder received her second, and Sarah Wyatt received her third. Junior Sabrina Davis received her third letter.
