Benson's 1972 swim team produced a carbon copy
performance of last year's results by finishing off the season
with a four win two loss record, losing once again only to
Lincoln and powerful Wilson. Senior Clark Luse, juniors Rob
Wilson and Jeff Luse, and sophomore Bob Fleming were cited
for outstanding achievement. Some factors which made it hard
on this year's team were the absence of a pool for the team to
work out in and the loss ofjunior letterman Russ Fleming who
injured his foot while running for Tech's cross country team.
The only Tech swimmers to qualify for the P.l.L. city meet were
brothers, Clark and Jeff Luse. Clark qualified in the 100 yard
breaststroke and finished a strong fourth, while Jeff competed
in the 100 yard butterfly and also came in fourth. Another high
point for the Tech swimmers was when Rob Wilson came
within seven tenths of a second from the city record in the 50
yard freestyle at the first meet of the season against Roosevelt.
The team is looking forward to another winning season and
another shot at the city title.

The Benson Tech basketball team. rated the state's number
one, opened up with it's big guns and when the smoke had
cleared all their pre-season opponents were laid out on the
court, rubbing burnt eyes. With 7'O All-American Richard
Washington and 6'6 Ricky Lee leading the charge, the
Techmen outscored their opponents by an average of 17.5
points. After Washington had scored 30 points in the first
game a lot of people cried, "get rid of Richard and the
Techmen will be nothing!" But the very next night Washington
and Fort Vancouver's Craig Pierce were ejected for fighting. It
looked bad for the Techmen. Their big man was out of the
game! The game ended with a dream shattered, that is the
dream that "if-you-get-rid-of-Richard-Washington-you-will-
beat-the-Techmen." The rest of the team out-scored, out-
rebounded, ripped off, and checked the Trappers to the tune of
62 to 29. The team then defeated Wilco champion Reynolds
and P.l.L. Grant to win the Reynolds invitational Jamboree and
end their pre-season schedule undefeated.
