Local star helps team in playoffs

Former Mount Si star Pam Lovely, now a junior at Western

Washington University, played a role in propelling the team into the elite eight of

the NCAA Division II playoffs. The Vikings defeated Cal State of

Pomona, 84-66 to earn a second seed position from the Western region. The

triumph means the Vikings, 26-3 overall and ranked NO. 13 in the NCAA

II coaches poll, move on to a national quarterfinal at Pine Bluff, Ark.,

on March 22 against Slippery Rock University, the East regional champion.

Cal Poly Pomona, ranked No. 10 nationally and the region's No. 1

seed, completed its season 26-3 and had a 17-game winning streak snapped,

as well as a 22-game home court string that began early in the 1998-99


Lovely, a 1997 graduate of Mount Si and guard for the Vikings, had

three points in the game as well as four rebounds.
