The Adams County Record Wednesday, December 26, 2012 Council Lumberjacks lose 2 but show signs of improvement BY RODD BAXTER (Editor's note: This report is late in comin~ but we include it .for those who are interested.) The Council girls' basketball team took on Cascade Friday night (Dec. 14) and showed in the first half that they are heading in the right direction. The Lumberjacks were down 17 to 10 in the first quarter, and then only down 25 to 17 at the half. Last year they were down 55 to 7 at the half. Balanced scoring in the First Half helped the Lumberjacks as Suzy Meza led the way with 5 points; Taylor Cole and Sierra Schmeckpeper each had 4 a piece. The 3rd Quarter was not a good one, as the Lumberjacks were only able to make 2 Field Goals. Going into the 4th quarter, Council was down 35 to 24 but better pressure led to quick baskets and saw the lead trimmed to 6 points. Cascade was able to hold on for a 55 to 41 win, but the zmprovement and competitiveness is there. Council lost last year's contest to Cascade 85 to 25. Hayley Flynn led the scoring attack with 14 points, with 10 of those coming in the 4th Quarter. Suzy Meza had 8, Zoe Wessels 7, Taylor Cole 4, Sierra Schmeckpeper 4, Hannah Bryson 2 and Brittany Armistead 2. Council won the Junior Varsity game against Cascade 50 to 31. Council was led in scoring by Beauleen Soumwei with 13, Jasmine Gibleau 10, Brittany Armistead 8, Melyssa Goetling 8, Hannah Bryson 5, Tessa Shepard 4 and Lacie Anderson with 2. Horseshoe Bend On Saturday the girls traveled to Horseshoe Bend. The Lumberjacks went back and forth in the 1st Quarter with Horseshoe Bend taking the lead at the end of the quarter 12 to 10. The 2nd Quarter was the same, as both teams were only able to make 1 basket a piece with the other points coming from the Free Throw Line. At the half, Horseshoe Bend led 16 to 14. A low scoring 3rd Quarter for the Lumberjacks put them behind 27 to 20 going into the 4th. Although the Lumberjacks were able to outscore Horseshoe Bend in the 4th quarter, it just was not enough, and they ended up losing 36 to 32. Free Throws were the key in this game, and Council was not able to take advantage. Council ended up Organizations / Boards Cambridge Senior Chatter by ]anice One more week to go before 2012 is history and we begin anew. I know that we don't really start over, but we humans have made a tradition of wiping our slates clean at the end of the old year and hope the New Year brings us better health, fortunes and circumstances. Who ever invented this New Year time thing really did us all a favor m my opinion. It gives us a chance to set new goals and/or renew old ones. If we've had a bad year, we can believe that next year things will turn around, and if we have had a great year we can see things continuing. We have "hope" that our lives will be better, that we can put away our past failings and start over. I'm looking forward to the New Year and all the possibilities that are before me. Please join Candy and I as our quest for a happier and healthier New Year by beginning walking with us on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays at 9:00 AM. Physical activity is the one sure way to cure most of our physical and psychological ills. It helps our bodies to release endorphins m our brains that give us a sense of well-being. Plus, physical activity while it tires us out momentarily, actually gives us more energy in the Silver & Gold Page 5 9 for 24 from the Line. Last year's contest had Horseshoe Bend winning 52 to 18. Council was led in Scoring by Zoe Wessels with 12, Suzy Meza 7, Brandy Gibleau 5, Hayley Flynn 3, Brittany Armistead 3 and Hannah Bryson 2. The kids are learning what it takes to be competitive and they are making the strides everyday in practice. With a little more dedication and effort these young ladies are going to be successful. Council won the Iunior Varsity game 37 to 28.

If you are interested in being on the board, please come to the center and we have a nomination box you can put your name in. It would be nice to have some new faces and new ideas to make the center better. A special "thank you" to the girls from Ms. Cook's class. They came and decorated our Christmas tree. And the first, second and third graders came and sang for us last Wednesday. Wtiat a great job they did. I didn't know there were that many children in Council. A special "thank you" to the teachers and helpers who saw that the kids got where they were going and then back to the school. And last but not least, a real big "thank you" to the city of Council for that wonderful cash donation. It will sure be put to good use. May you have a Blessed Holiday and be safe.
