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.

Foggin was beaten out of the spot on the varsity squad in the race prior to the UM Invitational , but Hill said that she ran that race sick. Foggin will return to the varsity team for the city meet. Hellgate ' s girls cross country team is looking for a possible city championship . when they _ take on the teams from Big Sky and Sentinel in a triangular meet at Greenough Park tomorrow . Head coach Shirley Hill ex- Hill said she was happy with the Knights sixth place finish in the UM Invitational last Satur- day . ' I am really pleased with the finish , but I kind of wish I would have run Terese ( Foggin ) on varsity ,\ said Hill . • pects the meet to be a two-team battle between Hellgate and Big Sky . \ It should be very close . We have a really good chance to win it ,\ said Hill . Hellgate Girls Varsity Kendra Borgmann led the Knights in the Invitational. · She edged out her sister by .4 sec- onds in a time of 13 : 44 for 13th place in the 109 runner field. Freshman Joanne Reiter was eight seconds back earning her 16th place . Another freshman , Beth Colbo , running with a cold, finished in 23rd place with a time of 14 : 01.3 .

It has been brought to my attention that I offended several of the Hell- gate football players with certain parts of my last two columns . The jokes concerning the football team were meant to be taken humorously. My in- tentions were only to provide some comic relief from the disappointing season, not to offend the players . I am still one of the most avid fans of the Knights . So whoever is sending me the special de- liveries of Extra Strength Tylenol can stop . This column is directed to those non-athletes who wish they were athletes . Anyone can trick most people into believing that he or she is an athlete just by the use of one simple element : sports jargon . Using the proper terms can be very convincing. For example : Which sounds like it came from the mouth of an all-start baseball pitcher? \ I applied saliva to the ball, \ or \ I threw the spitter . \ The answer is fairly obvious. Every sport is riddled with its individual vocab- ulary . I will cover only a few . Football. When you hear the pla y er s on the sidelines yelling , \ nice stick ,\ they are not refer- ring to an injured players crutches but to a violent tackle . A \ wounded duck \ is a pass that is not quite up to par ( see golf jargon ). These wobbly throws often result in another form of football jargon the pickoff . Basketball is probably one of the easiest sports to find jargon . Words such as swish , brick , slam , and face come to mind . A swish and a brick rep- resent opposite ends on the basketball A brick is very similar to a wounded duck in foot- ball. Those who are persistent in throwing up bricks, such as myself , are known as bricklayers . Slam , short for slam dunk , is probably the most widely understood term. Face, whittled down from the original form, \in your face, \ is new to the sports linguist. This is a very vigorously blocked shot. Probably ' the toughest sport to gain complete control of the vocabularly is golf . The problem with golf is that the , words don't represent the definitions at all. If two under par is an eagle, and one under is a birdie, then why is one over par called a bogey? Shouldn ' t it be called a magpie or a yellow-bellied sapsucker? And, of course , if you don ' t know what par is you are probably in a state of total confusion . When the less proficient golfer swings , he or she often dislodges a clump of grass from the ground . This clump is called a divot. Why it ' s called that I don ' t know . If I had been in charge of naming , I would have called it something origi- nal like a \ grassclump .\ On the golf course this summer , I heard a fellow linkster ( golfer ) ex - claim, \ I hooked my tee shot O . B. , hit an iron into the bunker and then three-putted to a triple bogey seven. \ Wanting to sound professional Ire- plied , \ Me , too .\ ' Now I can ' t guarantee that my tips will propel y ou to the ranks of living legends , but drop a few choice tidbits here and there , and you might wit- ne s s some surprising results. Then again , you might not. Next issue .. . an exciting and deliciou s low cal recipe for stuffed pigskin . Stop in at 3310 Brooks Missoula best races but still did well . \ She ' s usually battling it out with Joanne ( Reiter ), but she ran sick and by no means had a bad race .\ Robinson , came in over a minute behind Colbo, placing 88th overall . Mary Wadington . and Lisa Moser rounded out the Hellgate runners finishing 89th and 105th respectively . Jean Robinson pushes to the · tlnleh In the UM Bob LaCasse photo Invitational. Robinson finished 88th In the meet and helped the Knights capture sixth In the team scores. Service Center 6th & Higgins Across from the Roxy
