Schumacher finished in 2:26:14, well behind the women's winner, Ha- ley Chura, who finished in 2:05.40. Schumacher was the second finisher among Oregon women, behind Ann Davidson of Portland who finished in 2:18:13. Overall, she was 793rd out of 1,989 competitors. "The race didn't go as well as I hoped," said Schumacher, 24. "But it was fun." She said she had difficulty dur- ing the swim portion, in which the water was wind-whipped and chop- PY. "It definitely was a different ex- perience," she said. On the 10K run, she said she felt "pretty good" but that her time didn't reflect that as she finished in 42:22.1. Her bike time was 1:12.30 over the 40-kilometer course and her swim time for 1.5 kilometers-was 28:30. Schumacher said she plans to defend her women's title in the Best in the West Triathlon on Sept. 8 at Lewis Creek Park on Fostdr Lake and finish her season with the Olym- pic distance competition at the Port- land Triathlon on Sept. 23.

Upon walking back from a spring for the morning's coffee water. I ran into a huge wild boar digging in the leaves. Wielding long tusks, these wild pigs can be more dangerous than a 'rabid bear so I quickly looked for the nearest tree. But this one kept moving ahead of me and didn't appear to be a threat, so I decided I'd have a little fun. All of a sudden I ran toward the beast and herded it right through camp, yelling "Wild boar!" My friends didn't think it so funny as a dozen wide eyes ap- peared from cozy sleeping bags and stared at the charging pig. There's nothing worse than campers with no sense of humor. Mon.- Fri. 9 a.m.- 6 p.m: Calhoon, RPH Saturday 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. :: inside Thriftway five finishers was Doug Scott from Sandy. Fast time of the night was Bricen James at a time of 18.324 seconds, winning the Crocker Cars Classic Sportsman Trophy Dash was J.J. Irvine from Lebanon, and heat race winners were Lebanon's Michael Byram and David Cronk of Portland. Scott Lehman brought his Mini Truck back into victory lane and earned his fourth win of the season. Lehman's main event vic- tory would cap off a night of domi- nance as he earned yet another clean sweep. Second place in the main event went to Banks driver Jeremy Stinnett and finishing in third was Mark Vonsild of Scio. The fin- ishing order was completed with teenagers Pete Haag of Alvadore in fourth and Jefferson's Jennifer Robbins in fifth. The Willamette Speedway continues with action on Sunday night with the finale for the Bill Workman Memorial. Late Mod~ els will be in action alongside the American Sprint Car Series-North- west Region and Interstate Sprint Car Series taking on one another.
