SPORTS Kuemper Rally Falls Short; Finishes 4th By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) DBS MOINES — Heelan of Sioux City won the rubber game against Kuemper here Saturday afternoon, 58-54, to take the Class 3A state consolation title. The Crusaders and Knights met twice during the season with Heelan winning the first game, 58-57, and the Knights taking the second meeting, 65-60. A four-minute dry spell by the Knights midway through the third quarter hurt them as Heelan broke away from a 30-30 tie and moved out to a commanding 40-30 bulge before the Knights battled back to within six, 42-36, heading into the final eight minutes. That brief dry spell was enough for Heelan to keep their lead in the final stages as they opened up a 49-38 margin with 6:24 remaining before Kuemper made a comeback behind Bob Kelly, Rick Friedman and Tom Schenkelberg to close to within 56-52 with 2:31 left. Heelan then wrapped up the contest with free throws by Mark Beam and Jeff Ingrum to finish their season at 19-6. Kuemper finished at 18-4, one of the best records in the school's history. . The Sioux City school fell behind 6-2 in the early going, but behind Al "Too Tall" Jones, Dick Collins' team gained a 13-10 first quarter lead. Jones made it 20-13 with 5:20 left in the second quarter before the Knights stormed into a 20-20 tie on two straight Friedman baskets. Both clubs traded baskets and it was 24-24 at intermission. Kuemper Head Coach Wayne Chandlee said afterwards, "we had a great season and we were very happy to get this far." That was his only comment. Collins felt the turning point, in the game came midway through the third quarter. "We called a timeout and and I told our players that you have only half a game left. In the second half I was very Tlmet Herald, Carroll, la. -y Monday, March 22, 1976 / <*fMMMni|||mMMMMMM*M**»MMMIIIt»l<IMIi pleased with our enthusiasm," he continued) "We started to play tougher defense, rebound better and get down the floor," added Collins. "Also, we were able to capitalize on Kuemper-'s turnovers down the stretch." The six-foot, eight inch Jones was the only Heelan player in double figures as he finished with 19. The game's top scorer was Bob Kelly who closed out his career with 23 points. Teammate Friedman was next in scoring with 16. In the statistical department, Heelan shot 47 per cent from the field to Kuemper's 41.4. Heelan won the board battle, 39 to 35, as 6-4 junior John Harty had 10 and Jones seven. Friedman led the Knights with eight. In the turnover department, Heelan committed 16 mistakes to only Kuemper's 13. Box Score: Kuemper FG T.

Champion Ames Ends Kuemper Bid, 56-39 By Dennis O'Grady Sports Editor) DBS MOINES — Ames showed why they're the state's best Class 3A team today as the unbeaten, top-rated Little Cyclones whipped Kuemper here Friday afternoon 56-39, before 10,100 fans in a semi-final round clash. Ames, like Kuemper, which has prided itself on defense in rolling to 24 victories, had too much of it for the Knights. The Little Cyclones' Chuck Harmison, a 6-8 all-state center and Mr. Intimidator, led coach Arnie Zediker's defensive effort as he blocked six shots and grabbed 14 rebounds to go along with 15 points. • "They put a tremendous amount of pressure on us," commented Knight head coach Wayne Chandlee. "When he did get the good shots, Harmison was there to blocked them," continued Chandlee. The Knights had one of their poorest shooting games of the season, 15 of 51 for 29 per cent. Part of that percentage was due to Ames' pressure defense which had yielded only an average of 53 points a game. Kuemper's failure to score early also killed them. Ames jumped out to a 7-0 lead and it wasn't until 3:37 remained in the first quarter did Kuemper score on a 15-foot jumper by Tom Kelly. The Little Cyclones built their lead to 15-8 at the quarter mark and then scored 14 straight points to lead 29-8 late in the first half. ? The Knights' finally got their first points of the second quarter with 1:22 left on a field goal by Rick Friedman. Ames took a 31-17 lead into halftime and Kuemper came out and narrowed the deficit to 32-21 with 6:49 left in the third period. But that was the,closet Kuemper could come as Ames pulled out to a 40-25 third quarter bulge and led by as many as 23 points on several occasions in the final quarter. Defensively, we did a great job on them," Chandlee related. "I thought if we held them in the 50s, we'd have a shot." "They're a good defensive club," continued the Knight head man, "But we didn't play smart offensively." Chandlee added that "Ames was by far the best team his club had played all season." Ames, which shot 47 per cent from the field, was led by Harmison's 15 points. Forward Bob Klingseis added 14. Kuemper's only player in double figures was Friedman with 10 points. Bob Kelly added eight. Ames won the board battle, 44 to 36, with Harmison leading the way. Friedman led Kuemper with seven. In the turnover department, Ames committed 15 mistakes to Kuemper's 17.

Mine It With A Classified! Goblirsch One of the new records set in 1975 leaves an Illinois farmer deserving a tip of the hat. Herman Warsaw of McLean County, Illinois, closed out last year's harvest with a measured acre yield of just over 338 bushels of corn . . . about ten per cent above the old record of 306 bushels (set in 1973 by Michigan farmer, Orville Montri). Producing the new record was land which has been planted to corn for the past 14 years. Warsaw says the stand on the measured acre was 33-thousand plants sowed in 28-inch rows. Rainfall on the crop was just over 24-inches. Fertilizer on the crop included 400 pounds of nitrogen, 228 pounds of phosphate and 290 pounds of potash. Giving lion's share of the credit to more than average sunlight, Warsaw points to an above average kernel size and high quality of'the ears as evidence of effectiveness of the sun's rays. Corn growers all over the country have a new target to shoot for. this year.
