4EXTR AWest THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Friday, October 4, 1991 SPORTS Musketeers fired up New coach Hermans changes XU's attitude With 802 Weisbrod he's back series, proves on a roll Ml 1 ' mer (1990)," he said. "I needed a break. It's been a grind. I need to get my confidence back and get some competition." By cutting back this year, s, 'A ( level, and he's coached in Europe. He has (the experience, and he's able to relay it to us." The Musketeers finished the 1990 season with a 5-15-1 mark, but after nine games this season they are 3-4-2. Junior midfielder Kyle Shertzer, a graduate of Anderson High School, said Hermans' mark can be seen in the Muskies' style of play . "This is a much faster team than before, more aggressive, and that's what (Hermans) wants," said Shertzer. One of the Musketeers' top defenders is Delhi Township native Dennis Fehr, a graduate of Elder High School. Fehr, Greater Cincinnati League most valuable player two years ago, started all 21 games last season as a freshman. "There's a lot more chemistry on the team this year, and lot of that has to do with (Hermans)," said Fehr. Xavier has attracted some of the best high school players in the Cincinnati area recently. A prime example is freshman Bryan Reinhart, a graduate of Roger Bacon High School. Reinhart, The Enquirer's player of the year last year, was named all-Midwest and all-state and led the Spartans to state soccer titles in 1989 and 1990. He had 30 goals and 31 assists in his varsity high school career. "I think the team this year is better than anyone thought it would be," the Colerain Township resident said. Reinhart is glad to be part of Hermans' first season. "We're going to be tough, and most of that will be because of coach Hermans." BY TERRY FLYNN The Cincinnati Enquirer Senior co-captain Jeff Betz has seen a dramatic change in the Xavier University men's soccer team from a season ago. "The attitude on the team is much more positive this year," the defender from Turpin High School said. "There's an upbeat feeling that wasn't here before." Other members of the Musketeer soccer squad echo Betz's remarks. And all agree on the source of the positive attitude: new head coach Jack Hermans. "We're having more fun this year, regardless of the record," said Betz. "You don't have to worry about making a mistake on the field and being pulled out. (Hermans) knows there are going to be mistakes, but he wants us to keep trying. We don't get down on ourselves." Hermans, 37, who took over this year after two years as assistant to former coach Vince Pecoraro, carries some prestigious credentials. A native of The Netherlands, he played professional soccer there until an injury ended his career. Then he turned to coaching, first in Holland, then in the United States. He began coaching in Cincinnati at Purcell Marian High School in 1980, earning Greater Cincinnati League coach of the year honors. He moved to Anderson High School in 1984 and was The Enquirer's coach of the year in 1985. "We've learned a lot from him," said Betz. "He's played the game at the professional k -'i ,v. J0 BY STEVE HOFFMAN The Cincinnati Enquirer Professional bowler Tim Weisbrod decided this year to try to get his confidence back by reducing his tournament road activities and staying close to his home in Delhi Township. It didn't take him long. In a recent match against Cincinnati Hall of Famer Steve Fehr, Weisbrod rolled an 802 series to Fehr's 795 in the Three-Man Major at Walt's Center Lanes, Newport, Ky. He has six 800 series. In posting the area's top three-game series since the season started Aug. 1, Weisbrod had 28 strikes (36 possible). His games were 278, 266 and 258. Weisbrod's performance did not surprise Fehr. "He got pumped up bowling against our Browning Pon-tiac national champions (1982). He was keyed up and he had his concentration." Fehr, who also lives in Delhi Township, said it is reasonable to expect Weisbrod to score well on his hometown lanes. "He's got a tremendous edge coming off the road," he said. "It's easier to bowl at home after bowling week after week under strange conditions in strange places." Weisbrod, 30, opened his first game against Fehr's team with eight straight strikes and his second with nine in a row. In the third game, he started with a strike and spare, then rolled seven strikes. During his seven years on the Professional Bowlers Association tour, Weisbrod usually traveled to 30 cities a year, driving about 50,000 miles. This year, he cut it to 11 cities. "I just got tired of traveling and the guy I was rooming with, Jim Miller, of Phoenix, quit last sum- The Cincinnati EnquirerErnest Coleman Sophomore Dennis Fehr of Delhi Township says there is "a lot more chemistry" on the Xavier soccer team this year. Tim Weisbrod Weisbrod said he is eligible to bowl as an amateur in the Hoinke Super Classic Thanksgiving weekend at Western Bowl, and the High Rollers tournament in Las Vegas. He is bowling in three local leagues a week this fall. Besides Walt's Center Lanes, he is in Western Bowl's Hoinke Memorial Classic Tuesdays, and Western's Friday night Social League. Weisbrod got hooked on bowling 18 months after he graduated from Oak Hills High School in 1979, his second year of bowling in adult leagues. He won $41,500 in the 1981 Hoinke Classic singles, and doubles at Western Bowl. "That changed my whole life," he said. He quit UC, where he was studying business administration. He began the right way: In October, 1984, he opened with a 300 game at Mason City, Iowa. "What a way to start off a career," Weisbrod said. Later that month, he won the $2,500 first prize in a Marion, Ohio, tournament. Weisbrod earned $14,000 in 1990, including $6,000 for finishing fifth at Grand Prairie, Texas. He plans to spend at least two more years on the pro tour. He expects a good year next year. "I learned a lot this year by not touring, by stepping back and looking at things in a different way, by not getting burned out on the road," he said. -COUPON' When you want your funeral home to understand and respect your religious beliefs, there's one firm you can depend on... trusted by families of all faiths.
