:1 e ra - May 16, 2012 SPORTS Page 15 " Jasmin Y ader signs to play soccer at Hesston College Jasmin Yoder became the third Sweet Home athlete this school year to sign a letter of intent to play at the college level, committing to play soccer next fall at Hesston College in Kansas. Yoder signed her letter in a ceremony at Sweet Home High School's library Thursday, May 10, flanked by her parents, Dean and Lola Yoder, and high school coach Ramiro Santana. She said she chose Hesston after visiting there and because it has a "great nursing program." Also, her dad attended there, so it's not completely foreign ter- ritory, though, Dean Yoder noted, "It's a long way from here." Jasmin Yoder said she sees a program on the rise at Hesston and she liked what she experienced there during a Spring Break visit. Yoder was one of three play- ers signed in recent days by Hess- ton College women's soccer coach Bryan Kehr. In addition to Yoder, they are Emma Cloud, a midfield- er/defender from Mesquite High School in Gilbert, Ariz. and Brooke Hodgson, a midfielder from Dacula (Ca.) High School. "Jasmin will be a great fit in the Hesston College soccer pro- gram," Kehr said. "We expect her to make a significant contribution on the field next fall and we are ex- cited with the talent she brings to the team." Santana said he expects Hess- ton to be a "great" fit for Yoder, whom Hesston has referred to as a Photo by Scott Swanson Jasmin Yoder signs a letter of intent to play soccer for Hesston College next fail, as her parents, Dean and Lola Yoder, on either side, and Coach Ramiro Santana, in rear, watch. midfielder, but who can play any- where on the field. "She knows every aspect of the game," Santana said. "She can play any position on the field, ex- cept, maybe, for goalie, and do a great job." After playing softball for three years, Yoder went out for track this year and Santana, who also serves as an assistant with the track team, said the speedwork is paying off. "Not many kids have the en- durance and the ability to move on the field that she does," he said. "It's never-ending. Not only that, she has a great work ethic. She's a great kid. "She's one of those you would like to call your own."

It was also a change of pace from most of the other competitions this season, which tended to have concentrated league representation. "It was a good tune-up for the district meet for us." Coach Billy Snow said. 'It's nice to see different competition. We saw Elmira virtu- ally every week.this season. In our meets at Lebanon and Sprague. we got to see different schools. Variety is the spice of life." Annie Whitfield broke her own school record in the javelin, throw- ing 144-2, to lead the Husky girls. Devyn Makin won the long jump (16-4) and Jade Corliss posted .a 3-foot PR in the discus, throwing 87-11 to win that event. On the track. Nicole Rasmussen was the lone winner for the Hus- kies. running 11.52.20 to finish ahead of teammate Paige Sanders (11:56.30). "Paige had a good 3000," Snow said. "All of our distance kids had a good day, except for the 800 meters, for some reason." On the boys side. Nick Hall won the 300 hurdles (40.75), Jake Johnson won the discus (137-5), Ashton Stutzman won the high jump (5-8) and Scottie Stockman won the pole vault (11-6) with teammate Nick Mattson second at 9-6. The boys 4x400 relay team also won. in 3:38.34. The Sprague meet featured varsity athletes, as the junior var- sity district meet was held Tuesday, May 8. at Cottage Grove. Winners for Sweet Home were Karson Rodgers in the girls 100 (14.69) and Kyle Wodtli in the boys shot put (36-8), ahead of teammate Shawn Worthen. second with 35-11!4. Wodtli also placed second in the javelin (124-10). McKenzie Curtis placed second in the pole vault (6-6) for the girls, Phoebe O1- son was third in the girls long jump (12-3 ) and Joe Hefty was third in the boys triple jump (32-9). Snow said he believes his team is in good shape for the district competition, which will begin at 2 p.m. with field events and 4 p.m. on the track on Thursday, and at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday. Cost is $4 for adults and $2 for students. He said he expects La Pine to be the leader on the boys side and Sisters on the girls. "They don't have a lot, but what they have is very, very good," he said of the Hawks. "Behind them are us and Cottage Grove, battling it out." La Pine's Jeremy Derosiers has the top 200 time in the league - by half a second, thebest long jump mark (22-0) and is a threat to win the 400 as well. The Hawks also have the top 300 hurdler in Col- ton George(40.59). though Sweet Home's Hall could challenge him; and the top 4x100 relay team. led by Derosiers: the top shot putter, Travis Harrison (47-11), and two 14-foot pole vaulters in Eion Mrck (14-10) and Dylan Seay (14-6), who lead the league. On the girls side. Sisters looks to be a clear favorite, led by soph- omore Zoe Falk. who has size- able leads in the league in the 800 (2:20.51) and the 1500 (4:52.99) going into districts. She also has the second-longest long jump mark, 16-7. The Outlaws also have depth in both the 400. the 800 and the 100 hurdles, in which they have the league leader in se- nior Chelsea Reifshneider (16.18), who also leads in the 300 hurdles (47.91). Sisters also leads the league in both relays. On the field, they have significant depth in the high jump, the pole vault and the long jump. "Sisters is way ahead." Snow said. "Behind them it's pretty tight- ly packed." Husky boys who are league leaders going into the meet are Dan- iel Danforth in the 3000 (9:25.05) and Johnson in the discus (147-9). On the girls side, Rasmussen leads in the 3000 (11:08.02), Whitfield in the javelin (144-2) and Makin in the long jump (17-2). Sweet Home athletes have performed well in recent district meets and Snow said his crew is ready to go. "We'll rest them up this week, just work on finer details," he said. "Being home will be nice. They get extra rest time. They know the fa- cility in the field events. It's always nice."
