Varsity Girls Strive
To Gain Respect
"Benson Varsity Girls' Basketball team didn't win
many games, but they still had an outstanding
season," stated Tina Powell 1121.
Varsity girls couldn't seem to find the antidote to a
win. During the season Benson's star player, Debbie
Griffith 1121 was out due to an injury.
One of Benson's few wins was against Jefferson
high school. ln that game, Shelli Dishman 1121 seemed
to be the star player since she made eight key points to
help pull the win off. Sheila James 1121, who was the
point guard, ran the show and got the team motivated.
A new addition to the team this year was Tina Powell
1121. She was the power forward who averaged six or
more points per game.

T. West Is Benson's
With 26 Iettermen this year and 21 returning J.V. and
varsity wrestlers Coach Surbrook looks for a team that
will dominate the competition. Next year's team will
receive a lot of help from a frosh team that took third in
their city meet.
Some of the more outstanding performances came
from Travis West 1121 the state champ at 123. Travis
was the first Benson wrestler to take three state titles.
His freshman year he placed fifth in state at 98 pounds
and his sophomore year saw him capture the crown at
98. Grade 11 was another outstanding year for Travis.
As he moved up in grade level he also moved up in the
weight classes and a new title was captured,State
Champ at 106.As Travis continued things started to get
routine. After a giant move up in the weight classes put
him at 123 pounds, Travis went on to post a record of
zero losses, and, of course, a state title at 123 pounds.
Another outstanding wrestler was Carl Waller 1101.
Carl, one of two varsity heavyweights took second in
the district finals. Besides West and Waller five other
wrestlers qualified to go to State. They were Mike
Middlestead 1101 98 pounds, Pat Willis 1101 115
pounds, Scot Thorburn 1113 148 pounds, Robert Meek
1121 168 pounds, and Scott Burke 1121 198 pounds.
Two of the better matches came against Madison
and Franklin. By the time Benson was through with
Madison the Senators were impeached with a 63-3 loss
to the Techmen. The team that placed second in the
city, Franklin, did a little better but the Quakers were
quaking in their boots at the sight of a 40-24 loss to the
North Bend Tournament

JV Girls Reach Out
For Season BB Goal
The J.V. Girl's Basketball team opened the season
with a 47 to 28 loss to Marshall high school.
Throughout the season Benson girls had dry spots as
well as hot spots.
Crystal Hanson 191 was one of the smallest players
on the team but also one of the best players. She was
the point guard on the team and provided incentive by
making the team talk it up. Felicia Kline 191 was also a
key player as the power forward who brought down all
of the rebounds. She performed well enough to play on
the varsity team as well as on the JV team. Michelle
James 191 was a great help to the team with her
consistent jump shot.
In the game against Jefferson high school both
teams struggled until the last minutes when Benson's
team finally started to pull off with a pair of lay-ups by
A. GIRLS' J.V. BASKETBALL TEAM: Diane Paulsen 191, Sonya
Wilson 191, Felicia Kline 191, Coach Ben Markin, Oshannah Gillis 191,'
Rustina Owenby 191, Michelle James 191, and Crystal Hanson 191. B.
