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.

6 December 8, 2004 Sports The Wescolite Student Newspaper Rodeo leads Big Sky Region in points Western Football ends successful season By Deanna Levine The UM-Western men’s team is currently leading the nation in the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association and the Big Sky Region in total points following the fall season. The Western women’s team, Bryant Worthen, Maquel Fleming, Michelle Wock, and Krystal Roberts, finished second last year in the nation behind Panhandle State University and are currently sitting second in the Big Sky Region standings. Bryant Worthen finished second in the nation in the breakaway roping and Maquel Fleming finished fifth in the breakaway roping. Olie Else, the 2004 National Rodeo Coach of the Year, is ecstatic with the talent on both the men’s and women’s teams. “Both teams have the depth to win it all at the CNFR. Our strength on both teams is a wealth of experience in the arena and some talented transfers and new freshmen.” The Erickson brothers, Mac and Chase, have stood out as All Around point winners. Shawn Downing, senior team captain, is leading the steer wres­ tling event. Downing has qualified for the Montana Pro Rodeo Finals and is headed back again this year. Tate Dempewolf teamed up with National Finals Rodeo Competitor, Matt Robinson, to dominate the heading and the heeling in the Team Roping event. “Western women have everything to gain in the spring season. I am very proud of all of my girls and any one of them could win in their respective events.” The team hopes to start prac­ tice in February and be ready for the spring season and the CNFR. The rodeo team is expected to have a great spring. With a positive coach and a willing team, great things are going to happen S w e e t w a t e r C o f f e e By Jon Currier The Western football team went 2 and 1 in their final three games of the season to finish with a 7-4 overall record. Their final loss of the season was to NCAA I-AA Southern Utah 34-0. The Dawgs then turned around and beat MSU- Northern 34-7 at home on parent’s day. The last game of the year for the team was senior day, against Eastern Oregon. The Dawgs played hard and won a tight 17-14 victory, to send Coach Tommy Lee’s first recruiting class out as winners. The senior leaders on offense were Josh Shrum at running back, Mike Schmidt and Ben Snipes on the offen­ sive-line, T Artis, Cory Chreighton, Dallas Mock and Kyle Hannah as re­ ceivers, Eric Zahler, kicker/punter. The senior leaders on defense were Enoch McKeague, Shawn Stennerson, Jake Shrum, defensive backs, Guy Silvemale, Nik Rewerts, Jereme Hess, Ruley Stingley, and Jason Wedel, de­ fensive-line, and linebackers Bryan Amston and Zach Tune. These guys and the team as a whole fought hard all season and ended the season in a three-way tie for the cham­ pionship. Congratulations on a great season goes out to the players and coaches of the University of Montana- Western football program. Mitchell Drug One Hour Photo 125 E.
