What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
D il l o n T ribune : S ports N ews Page A-15 Wednesday, February 16, 2005 Durham's Dawgs win third straight By J.P. Plutt The UM-Western Bulldogs are streaking again. The team opened conference with five straight wins before falling into a three-game funk. After de feating Montana Tech, 104-99, Friday night in Dillon to retain the \Digger-Dawg Cup, Western improved to 8-3 in league and won their third straight since ending the losing skid. In a second place tie with Lewis-Clark State one game be hind league leaders Carroll Col lege (9-2) and Westminster Col lege (8-2), the Dawgs control their own destiny if the can streak off to four straight wins over #20 Carroll, Rocky, #12 Westminster and #24 L-C State, to end the regular season. Western's win over Tech was not nearly surprising as the high point total. Frontier observers expected Tech to slow the tempo, but they squared off in a shooting contest at Straugh Gym Friday night. \I was glad to see Tech wanted to run up and down with us,\ said UM-Western coach Mark Durham. \I really feel that's our strength, running up and down and scoring baskets.\ For the game, Tech hit 35 of 81 shots from the field while Western was 30-of-68. The dif ference came at the free throw line where Tech canned a re spectable 20-of-29 (69 percent), while Western, the national leader in team free throw per centage, hit 34-of-41 (82.9 per cent). \A lot of teams will not run up and down with us but I guess Tech felt like they had a chance to do that and wanted to open it up,\ said Durham. \They rolled it out there to run up and down and we like that tempo.\ Western placed five players in double digit scoring to reach the century mark, lead by Jeff Feenstra, a 6-6 junior from Bozeman who sat out the previ ous week with an ankle injury. Feenstra scored a team-high 26 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field, including 4-of-5 accu racy from beyond the arc, and 8- of-9 success from the charity stripe. Matt Luedtke, a senior from Ronan, scored 25 to prove he's back on top of his game after struggling through a bout with illness. Luedtke hit five, three- pointers. Bo Segeberg, Western's 6-10 post, hit for 15 points and added a game-high 13 rebounds. Jun ior point guard Derek Hibbert of Missoula just missed a double-double with 14 points and nine rebounds. Tyler Palmer rounded out the top scorers with 12. Senior post Brandon Day continues to contribute where ever the team needs the help. The 6-6 Helena native dished a team-high five assists, scored eight points and grabbed six rebounds. Western built a 45-39 half time lead and then endured a wild second half in which Tech outscored the Dawgs, 60-59. \A pretty fun game to watch, and I'm sure it was a fun game to play in,\ said Durham. \Ob viously, from my standpoint it was fun because we ended up winning.\ MONTANA TKCII W, L’M-WKSTKRN 11)4 Dawg scoring- Brandon Day x.

Plutt photo Low turnout, big fish mark derby By J.P. Plutt The Beaverhead Search & Rescue Stan Shafer Memorial Ice Derby brought more big fish to headquarters than ever before according to one longtime observer, but the turnout was a disappointing all-time low for the service organization’s major fundraising effort. There were as many theories to the low turnout as there were ice holes in Clark Can yon Reservoir. \I've seen this many out here on a Sunday,\ said Joe Kump of Butte, runner-up with a six pound, 12 ounce rainbow. \I'm surprised by the low turnout because the fishing has been good. This ice is good and we've been doing real good this year so I thought there would be a lot more fishermen.\ \I think not being able to to catch any ling ht„ witl Bessie Reeves of Dillon dropped her hook through the ice near the Horse Prairie end of the reservoir and dangled a jig, enticing the winning seven-and-a-half pound trout to chomp down. Reeves, fishing in her third derby, caught her first-ever fish on Sunday to claim the $400 first place check. Reeves donated a portion of her winnings back to the Continued from page A-13 Search & Rescue. Kump has been coming to the Stan Shafer Memorial since the derby started. Fishing on the highway side out about 100 yards from shore, he hooked the six pound, 12 ounce sec ond place fish using jigs, maggots and meal worms. He caught the $200 fish at 1:15 p.m. \I've come close a few times, but this is the first time I've placed,\ said Kump. Dillon’s Don Erfle placed third with a six pound, eight ounce trout caught near the dam. The big fish was still flipping around in the trough at the 4 p.m. deadline as Erfle caught it just 15 minutes before the derby ended. Erfle is a longtime d?rby competitor who has been to nearly every S&R event if not all of them. A few years back he won first place in the ling division. This year, he won $100 for third place. ■ » ,Rick Brpwn of Rigby. Idaho, had no com plaints' hewasnappy.He caught his fourllT place fish near the dam with a worm first thing in the morning. His 450 fish weighed six pounds, five ounces. \Great said Brown of his derby experi ence. \I loved it.\ Neither of the two, $500 tagged fish were caught on derby day. Dick Newton won $210 as the holder of the winning 50/50 ticket. 11/12C girls Twin Bridges completed a 13-1 conference season with a tough win at Sheridan, 51-41. I nonconference action.

Post Jared Haitheox, 6-5, is talented inside, Ernie Delgado is a tough senior defender, and Nate Lester, has found his role working hard inside. Coach Mike Whitesell has done a nice job pulling the pieces tpgether, but Twin Bridges might be a year away from making an impact. Should they upset Shields Valley, they get the honor of playing Gardiner in the semifinal. • 11/12C girls field wide open ■ Unlike the boys, the girls tourney will be wide open with any of the top seven teams likely to be playing Saturday night. Twin Bridges and White Sulphur Springs enter as the favorites, but anything can happen in this talented league. Top-seeded Twin Bridges should cruise past West Yellowstone in their opener, but after that the youthful team will have to remain focused to live up to their record. \We have to maintain our intensity and make sure we re fo cused on what we're supposed to do,\ said Twin coach Rob Dm. Lima rolls in playing well and as the #3 seed gets a tough draw in #6 Harrison. The teams split on the regular season. Lima has good size and must take advantage off the boards. Sophomore Amy Allen and foreign exchange point guard Katharina Hosse are legitimate scorers. Lima has to continue finding a third scorer to enjoy success. #5 seed Sheridan has been inconsistent through the season, looking great one night and weak the next. The swept #4 Shields Valley during the regular season. \You need to be ready to play and you need to be ready to win,\ said Sheridan coach Sarah Norden. \We ll be ready for whoever we face.\ Brokaw was forced to use in jury time to recover from Pierce's relentless style. Brokaw had a much easier time in his title match. Pierce dropped to the conso lation semifinal where he again pressured his opponent into sub mission. Libby's Unger, a Ger man foreign exchange student, bowed out due to \injury\, pro pelling Pierce to the third place match. Pierce cruised to a 7-2 win over Belgrade's Thomas. Jake Peterson, 4th 171 Peterson had been Dillon's senior leader all season and embraced that role at state by leading through example. Peterson won two decisions to get to the semifinal, including an overtime win over Sidney's Larson. In the semi. Peterson fell to Kevin Owen of Poison, one of the tournament's top wrestlers Peterson avenged an early season loss to James Muhlbeier of Hardin with a pin in the con solation semifinal to earn a spot in the consolation final. Havre's Dustin Haukenberry earned a tough decision over Peterson to leave the Beaver in fourth place.
