Rangers Swept by Bellevue
Firepower - or lack of it - was the main issue Wednesday night as both the Olympic College men and women fell to Bellevue at the Bremer Student Center Gym. The OC women (3-13 overall, 2-10 conference) continued to play without their leading scorer, sophomore Jodi Mitchell, and her absence was noticeable as the Rangers shot a frigid 15 percent while losing to Bellevue.

Women Fall to Seattle
The OC women's basketball team fell to the Seattle Storm 66-53. The OC women are now 3-7 overall, 2-4 in the NWAACC Northern Division.

Helwig Ready to Rebuild at OC

The Rangers go to work for real on Saturday when they make their season debut at South Puget Sound. Game time is 4:00 p.m. "We can't go into any game thinking we are going to lose," Helwig said. (more>>)

OC Basketball Just Another Challenge for Tammy Helwig
The odds are against new Olympic College women's basketball coach Tammy Helwig that she can resurrect a program that has had just two coaches produce winning seasons in its 31 years of mostly being a NWAACC bottom feeder. There have been 13 coaches before her and only Dave Sturgeon, who had a good six-year run (1992-98, 108-57 record) before deciding it was more profitable to get into the lawn-cutting business
