E "As far as the season, wins and losses weren't what we hoped for," said Coach Kostanty Knurowski. The team went 3-20, defeating Stayton, Taft and La Pine. "In spite of the record, this was one of the most enjoyable groups I've coached." "You'd never know it was an eight- or 10-game losing streak," Knurowski said. The team was always upbeat and a joy to be around, and that's a tribute to the parents. The Huskies didn't have much height, a fact acknoweldged by op- posing coaches, Knurowski said. The team tried different things to overcome that. Sometimes it didn't work, but the HUskies al- ways went at it 100 percent. Nine seniors graduate this year, Knurowski said. "It's kind of sad.
