Big-School Washington Looms as Tourney Favorite DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)Predicting which team will win the Iowa Girls' State High School Basketball Tournamerityis like winking at a girl in the aark. The guy making the prediction knows what he's doing, but nobody else really cares. The five-day, 57th annual tournament got under way here Tuesday with what appeared to be one of the most balanced fields in recent years. But a couple of teams flexed their muscles, and their showings considerably reduced the Sweet Sixteen field of championship prospects. On the basis of Tuesday's results, with only half of the teams competing, big-school Cedar Rapids Washington (271) loomed as a strong favorite. But there was no crystal ball — just a crazy basketball — Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednetday, March 10, 1976 15 and the seers and sages, spo'rtswriters N 'and fansi experts and non-experts, had a variety of predictions.' One observer originally picked fifth-rated Cedar Rapids Washington to defeat No. 6 Manilla (27-0) by six points in the title game. After the Warriors trounced No. 17 Belmond 86-65 in opening round play, he strangely reduced his victory margin .prediction to three points. And Manilla hadn't even played yet. Manilla is making its eighth tourney appearance, is the 1975 runnerup and has three starters from that team. There were even those who just mumbled when asked to speculate on a title winner. Unheard of. And there were others who, nodding knowingly, observed that if Cedar Rapids or Manilla didn't claim the crown, then it would be defending champion Lake View-Auburn (25-3) Or maybe it would be No. 3 Aplington (26-0), which had yet to play but has the state's highest scoring average. 93.4 points a game, and the third-leading scorer in LeeAnn Uhlenhopp, averaging 44.5. Another said the strong second-half showing by Ankeny (26-2) in stopping Ackley-Geneva 74-48 shouldn't be discounted. Mike Henderson of the Iowa Girls' High School Athletic Union said "the thinking on press row" is that Cedar Rapids Washington "can indeed take the whole tournament. 3 DAYS ONLY Driving — -Statt Photo WARDS CARRIES ALL PAINTS IN STOCK Black Hawkette JoAnn Tjaden drives around 6-1 sophomore Karry Crafton of West Burlington in opening round of girls' state play Tuesday night in Des Moines. Tjaden scored 12 points to help lead the defending champs to 44-41 victory before 6,457 fans. LV-A's record is 25-3 with a 15-game winning streak. Sport Glances Entered Some 1,020 girls from 122 high schools are entered in the 12th annual United States Track and Field Federation Iowa division girls' indoor championships. The meet will be held Saturday at Drake University Fieldhouse. Woodbine, the defending champion and winner of three straight state high school titles, is the team favorite, but the Tigers are missing Debbie Esser, the all-time Iowa girls' record holder in five individual events. Washington, Ames, Pleasant Valley and West Union North finished behind Woodbine last year in the indoor champions and all are strong again this season. Lays Claim A college wrestler laid claim to a world record by doing 120 sit-ups in two minutes Tuesday. Louis Yanniello, 18, surpassed the old mark in the Guiness Book of World Records by 13. The Atlantic Community College freshman did 65 sit-ups in the first 60 seconds.
