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.

Last season the Lady Bulldogs had a tough beginning winning only four out of sixteen matches in the first month. With a big win over Lewis- Clark State College, they began to make a comeback. That win lead them to a 10-4 league record and a third place finish in the Frontier Confer­ ence. The season ended with a heart­ breaking loss to MSU-Northem in the first round o f the league playoffs, leav­ ing them a 16-16 overall season record. Hopes are high for this season’s young team.
