* 1976 -- Richland's cheerleaders may have switched their usual green and gold for green and red in honor of Christmas, but that's about as far as the holiday spirit went as the Bombers boys basketball team wore -- and showed -- its true colors in a 93-50 rout of Kennewick at Art Dawald Gym. Richland senior guard Dave Tuttel had his biggest offensive showing of the year with 18 points.
