Men's Basketball: Highline Topples Olympic College

Dec. 16:  Showing little effect from playing its fourth game in five days, Highline used a first half run to get a working lead over the Olympic College Rangers and extended it throughout the game for a 96-74 win (stats).  Ben Tucakovic’s 23 points and 11 rebounds led the Thunderbirds.  Olympic was led by Gavin Peppers with 27 points and 7 rebounds.

It was Highline shooting 53% for the game, including a blistering 15-24 (62.5%) in the second half, which proved the biggest difference in the game. The Thunderbirds were able to control the tempo of the game, controlling the boards 43-33 and getting easy baskets off of 18 Ranger turnovers.

In addition to Tucakovic with 23 points, other Thunderbirds scoring in double-figures included Madison McCaffrey (18 points), Isom Brown (15 points, 6 rebounds), Harold Lee (11 points), and Jimmy Keum (10 points, 7 assists).

The Thunderbirds get little rest as the squad travels to Oregon for the Clackamas Crossover Tournament on Dec. 18-20. Other colleges participating are Spokane, Chemeketa, Clark, Clackamas, Olympic, Skagit Valley, and Treasure Valley. Highline (7-2) opens with Treasure Valley (1-6) on Dec. 18.

Men's Wrestling
Highline Falls to #12 Southwestern Oregon

Dec. 14 (report from Head Coach Scott Norton) :  This past Sunday we had a golden opportunity to knock of #12 Southwestern Oregon Community College.  Unfortunately, we let the opportunity slip right through our hands.  Our downfall began when Brad Reddaway missed weight at 133 lbs. and we had a forfeit at 149.  In addition, we have a few weights that have really struggled through the first half of the season.  On a brighter note, Erick Garcia knocked off a very good wrestler in #10 Walker Damewood.  What was more impressive was the fact that Erick had sub-locked his shoulder two days earlier, and turned around and added a major upset.  Garcia scored a near fall on Walker Damewood on two different occasions.
