Lois Larson, Donna Anderson and Girls start warm- ups, work-outs OHS Girls basketball practice has begun with the team working hard to build their stamina for a last paced game this 'ear. Seniors Lisa Spors and Sarah LaVoi felt that conditioning was going to make all the difference in their team particularly with the emphasis on the fast break and man- to-man defense. "We have a young team, with only two returning seniors," said Coach Sheila Hoernemann, "but this group of girls work well together, and really enjoy playing the game. We'll be a competitive team this year every- where we play." "It will be a lot of fun playing an up-tempo game, but my personal goal is to be less timid under the basket. I'd like to dominate under the basket this year," said Sarah. Lisa said that she was approaching the season with real enthusiasm. "This is a great group of girls. I like being a part of the team, and I'm con- fident that we'll be able to step up our game."

" 00at's entertainment The Matador (Continued from page 1) The couple says they are tbrtunate to have Nikole's family to help them. tier parents, Chuck and Verda Bartz, who operate the Vail Vu Motel, Hiltop's Theatre of Seasons Cafe and Charlie's Lawn Service still have time to lend a hand at the Matador when ever possible. Nikole's aunt and uncle Sherwood and Janice Dove also help tremen- dously whenever there's something to be done. The Matador continues to operate with many of the high standards Bill maintained such as personally greet- ing each customer and stopping by the tables throughout the night to see if there is anything they can do for you. The Kehnles have also brought a few new ideas to the business. They've spruced the entire restaurant up quite a bit. They have much of the same menu featuring steaks, seafood, chicken, ribs, and prime rib on Friday and Saturday. They added a few new items, such as pasta and a new bar menu. They brought back the piano bar on weekends to the lounge. Lucky Lundy takes piano requests and livens up the lounge with favorite melodies and sing along tunes. The supper club has dances every Sunday night featuring 'old time' music in the Matador's 'fiesta room' which has a large dance floor and seats about 250 people. The Kehnles are taking reserva- tions now for Christmas parties. In addition to the fiesta room, the Matador has the 'north room' for par- ties and gatherings, which seats approximately 50 people. The Matador has the area's largest salad bar with more than 14 different salads and each night they serve homemade soup from Bill's favorite recipes. Stop in at the Matador this week and enjoy the dining r)m and lounge specials during their anniversary/cus- tomer appreciation celebration.
