THE ISSAQUAH PRESS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11 2009 C3 Basketball FIOM PAGE C1 and 9-of-12 from the line. Pasco, which had lost for the first time the previous day, led 16- 10 at the end of the first. But Is- saquah rallied with an 18-point third period to take control at 41- 38 going into the fourth. Sophomore Maddey Pflaumer added 10 points and six rebounds for the Eagles, who then moved onto a matchup with Auburn Riverside for fourth place in the tournament. Issaquah jumped out to a 12-4 lead at the end of the first period and controlled the game until late. It appeared the Eagles were going to run away with the win at one point in the third period, as they had a 40-25 lead. They still led 43- 33 going into the fourth quarter, when Auburn Riverside turned on the offense and erupted for 24 points to score a come-lYom-behind 57-48 victory, putting Issaquah into seventh place for the tournament. Nicol had a big game for the Ea- gles, knocking down 7-of-17 shots to finish with 15 points. Smith had 11 points and seven rebounds, while Pflaumer added 10 points. Issaquah opened the tournament with a 58-55 win against Jackson. Nicol led all scorers in that one with 18 points, while Smith chipped in 12 and Pflaumer 10. The Eagles trailed, 49-43, going into the fourth quarter, before a stingy defensive effort got them back on top. Two free throws by Pflaumer gave them a 50-49 lead with 5:25 remaining. Jackson had a chance to tie the game in the fi- nal seconds, but missed on a 3- point attempt. After shooting 58 percent from the field in the first half, Jackson was held to just 31 percent in the second half. Smith honored For individual honors, Smith was selected to the all-tournament sec- ond team. She averaged 12.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.8 as- sists. Nicol, who wasn't selected to the all-tournament team averaged 13.5 points and 3.2 rebounds. How- ever, she was selected as KingCo's Most Valuable Player this season.

Leading up to the Paralympics, he will have to keep his competi- tive edge before the U.S. Team Trials, which will decide who represents the U.S. in London. "You have to hone your skills, get as fast and as competitive a team as you can, and it all boils down to one race," he said. "I'm currently ranked second in my class, so I have to get better if I want to boat first." Jones competes in the SKUD- 18 class of sailing, a two-person boat for athletes with disabilities. He has been a paraplegic since a car crash Dec. 5, 1981, took away the use of his legs. Living in Issaquah at the time, he was driving home from a ten- nis tournament when he fell asleep at the wheel and drove over a 30-foot drop. The car landed upside down. His vertebrae smashed into his spinal cord, and doctors gave him a 5-percent chance of walk- ing again. The accident came 90 days af- ter he'd bought his first sailboat, a San Juan 28, and Jones said even in the hospital, faced with the prospect of never walking again, he thought about getting out on the open sea with his boat. "There wasn't any doubt that I would continue sailing when I got out of the hospital," he said. "I hadn't even left the hospital before I went on my first sail." Before his official discharge from the hospital, friends came by and took him on a trip aboard the San Juan 28. An active ath- lete before the accident, sailing would be the only sport Jones would continue afterward. A level playing field Being able to modify a sailboat to adapt to disabilities helps the disabled compete with the able- bodied, said Ken Kelly, a fellow sailor and longtime friend. Kelly, also a paraplegic, has competed with Jones at several regattas. "It's a different sport, because you're able to compete against nondisabled people," he said. "The sailboat levels the playing field." "There wasn't any doubt that I would continue sailing when I got out of the hospi- tal. I hadn't even left the hospital before I went on my first sail:' - Bob Jones lssaqmdt paratympian Kelly participated in the 1995 and 2004 Paralympics represent- ing Canada. In 2005, Jones and he sailed together for a Canadian national championship, which they won, competing against able-bodied people. The Paralympics began in 1960 and are held alongside the Olympics every four years. As a member of the U.S. Sailing Team, made up of both disabled and able-bodied people, Jones gains the training and resources afforded to members of the team, but he is not guaranteed a spot on the Paralympics roster. While anybody may compete at the U.S. Time Trials, held sev- eral months before the Para- lympics, Jones said he would need consistent competition at the international level to be ready, including regattas all over the world. 'Putting In the time' "If things fall into place for him, he finds the right crew, gets the fi- nancing, he should do fine," Kelly said. "The more time that you put in, the better you will do. It's just a matter of putting in the time." Up next for Jones is the U.S. Sailing training camp. He will of- ficially become a member of the team upon gaining a doctor's clearance March 15. From there, he must prepare both physically and financially for the close to 40 competitions he plans to enter in the next three years. "It's not just about jumping in a boat and sailing hard and fast," he said. "It would be nice if I could just forget all that and just compete." Throughout the years, sailing has been the one way he can ex- press his competitive nature, Jones said. On a national stage, in London in 2012, would certainly be the largest competitive event of his life. But no matter what hap- pens, he'll be doing what he loves, riding the fastest current and soaring with the wind on the open sea.
