THE SALINA JOURNAL SPORTS SATURDAY, MAY 30, 1998 BB& T HIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS M V Central's Newman second in long jump Mustang senior takes aim at three more medals today in sprints By ARNE GnfcEN The Salina Journal Holloway wins twice ; WICHITA — Salina Central's Terence Newman picked up his first medal Friday with the promise of more to come at the State Track and Field Champi- oiiships. I'Newman placed second in the Idm^ jump despite skipping all three attempts in the finals, and topp'ed his day off by winning his qualifying heats in all three sprints. "I just wanted to come out and get the fastest (qualifying times) so I'll get the best lanes tomorrow;" said Newman, who had big epough leads to coast home in the 100-', 200- and 400-meter dashes. "tt was a long day — too long, if ybu j ask me, and too short of time (between events). I've got between two and three hours tomorrow between each event and that's a lot better on the body." ..The most difficult time came when Newman bOyS was called > away from the long jump finals to run the 400. He was in second place with a jump o'f 23 feet, trailing Liberal's Melyin Sanders by 7Vi inches. ; "They wanted me to jump right after the 400 and I couldn't even see straight," Newman said. ; "If I could have jumped before the 4001 might have done better. I kind of got my confidence before that. My last prelim jump really felt good. ; "Ifwalked over there, but I didn't have the breath in me. They said. I had to jump now and I just couldn't do it." Newman not only won his heats in the sprints, but had the fastest time in each one. He ran the 100 in 10.8 seconds, the 200 in 21,88 and the 400 in 49.53. ! "They went pretty well," Newman said. "This was kind of a warmup for tomorrow. Tomorrow's for the show." Central, which has its sights set oh a possible second-place team finish — Liberal is the prohibitive favorite to win — did not trip up on the first day. In addition to Newman's performance, A.J. Young qualified for today's finals in the 300-meter hurdles. Young, a relative novice in the hurdles, was second in his heat at 41.32 seconds, giving him the third-fastest overall prelim time. • "I felt pretty good, but that was the first time I had run in lane one,," Young said. "It's only the fourth time I've run it at all. • "It's still a little new to me, but it came to me pretty naturally. My distance running (background) helped me out." Young also will run on Central's 3,200-meter relay team today. South relay teams advance Salina South qualified a pair of relay teams for today's finals but did riot fare as well in individual eyents. '. The 400-meter relay team of Rob Rominger, Ronnie Jackson, Chris Young and Luke Ross finished second to Liberal in the first heat and had the second-fastest time overall at 43.65 seconds. Liberal ran a 43.21. "We're sitting second going into the .finals and our heat had the four'fastest times, so we feel pretty good," Rominger said. "Our handoffs were pretty smooth, but I feel we can pick up a little bit on Liberal. Hopefully tomorrow we can put everything together." •i The Cougars' 1,600-meter relay tea^h of Rominger, Brandon Ebert, Jeff Haas and Young finished fourth in its heat and qlaimed the seventh and last finals spot with a time of 3:29.59. ' "We came in wanting to medal in both relays and I think we have a chance to do that," Rominger s&id. 1 Rominger also ran the open 400, iriissing the finals by one spot. Young was a non-qualifier in the 100 'and 200 while Ross finished qighth in the javelin. Southeast's Dickson to finals ! Southeast of Saline's Jon Dick- s'on had a good afternoon on the track, winning his 100 and 200 heats and placing third in the 400 in Class 3A. Dickson ran 11.38 in the 100, the second-fastest time. His 200 time of 22.4 also placed him second overall. His 400 time was 50.61. Josh Betts hit a hurdle and fell in his 110-meter hurdle heat and then did not compete in the 300 hurdles. Russell senior never lost in shot put, discus at state meet By LARRY MORITZ Tlte Salina Journal WICHITA — There have been two givens at the Kansas State Track and Field Championships over the last four years, and both revolve around Andrea Holloway. The first was that Holloway, the Russell High School standout, was going to win the Class 4A shot put and discus. Four years, eight gold medals in those two events. The second was that Holloway would bring one of the biggest cheering sections with her into Cessna Stadium. "My sister and brother and cousin are here," Holloway said, "and my aunt, my grandma, my mom, my other cousins, my teachers and my counselor. They are all here." Friday that fan club watched Holloway .__,_ _|_|_ compete at Area gins sta te for the final time, following the script she has written in each of her three previous trips. She won both her events, winning the discus and shot put by comfortable margins. Holloway broke her own 4A state record in the discus on her final attempt, throwing 149 feet, 8 inches to top her 1997 mark of 1428. It was her very first attempt in the shot put that proved to be the winner, going 46-0 to set the 4A record for a third year in a row. Despite wrapping up her events early Friday, Holloway, an Oklahoma State signee, will stick around to watch her teammates in action today. "I've got nothing (today)," Holloway said. "I finished all my events and I'm glad I'm done. Now I have time to relax, because I know when I get to Oklahoma, I'm going to have to work hard. And I want to support my teammates because I didn't get to watch much today." • While Holloway's double victory came as no surprise to anyone, Kayla Gassmann's first- place finish in the 2A javelin could go down as the biggest surprise of the meet's opening day. Gassmann, a freshman from Hoxie, placed fourth at last week's loaded Hill City regional and her goal coming into state was to throw beyond 120 feet for the first time this season. She will set her goals higher next year. Gassmann had three throws better than 120 feet on Friday, including the winning effort of 128-4. "I'm very surprised, mostly because I hadn't thrown 120 feet all FRIDAY'S RESULTS KELLY PRESNELL/The Salina Journal Sophomore Lindsay Eck of St. John's-Beloit sails to victory in the 1A long jump with a leap of 18-3% Friday. year," Gassmann said. "I thought I would have to throw 130 feet to have a chance to win, but I think the wind may have helped me today. The way I throw the javelin, it was catching the wind just right and helping me, and I think it could have been hurting some of the others." The three girls who finished in front of Gassmann at regional — Plainville's Brianne Comeau, Osborne's Stephanie Corwin and Victoria's Sarah Wasinger — each finished in the top five and medaled. "Comeau beat me by three inches at regional and she finished second today, so it was a real tough regional," Gassmann said. • St. John's of Beloit sophomore Lindsay Eck began what could be a big weekend for her with a first-place finish in the 1A long jump. Eck went a season-best 18-3 % on her second jump in the preliminaries to move into the lead for good. As if to prove that winning leap was no fluke, Eck jumped the exact same distance on her next attempt. "I was jumping against a lot of very talented athletes," Eck said. "I was pleased with that jump but I also really wanted to hit 19 feet. I guess I still have two more years to make that." Tipton's Kala Adam was a surprise second-place finisher, jumping a personal record 18-0 V* to edge Grinnell's Mary Teeter in third at 17-11. Eck also had the best times in her preliminary heats of the 100 hurdles and 200 dash. • Only three inches separated the top three finishers in the 2A discus, where Clifton-Clyde's Tammy McCarren edged Twin Valley League rival Lacey Palmateer of Valley Heights for first place. McCarren threw 113-3, topping Palmateer by one inch and Olpe's Jennifer Bolinger at 113-0. • The finals of the 1A 300 hurdles could be a battle between Western Kansas Liberty League foes. Grinnell's Crystal Heinrich and Triplains' Ashley Latham won their preliminary heats and their winning times were less than a tenth of a second apart. • Smoky Valley's Mary Ruggiero and Abilene's Abbey Ferris had solid outings in the 4A hurdle prelims. Ruggiero won her heat in both the 100 and 300 hurdles and had the low qualifying time in both events. Ferris won her heat in the 100 and finished second to Ruggiero in their 300 heat. • Smith Center's Erica Kuhn won her 3A preliminary heat in both the 100 and 200 dashes. Kuhn had the fastest time in the 100 at 12.70, and the second best time in Southeast's Ade wins 3A discus By LARRY MORITZ The Salina Journal WICHITA — Jody Ade came to the Kansas State Track and Field Championships wanting to win a state title. Having accomplished that during the opening day of competition at Cessna Stadium, Ade will start all over _ . again today. Comity fllrtS The Southeast of Saline senior won the Class 3A discus Friday for her first state gold, and will be among the favorites to medal in the javelin at 8 a.m. today. "I've already accomplished something, but I want to put that back in a corner for now and think about the javelin," Ade said. "When I go into that event, I want to be calm and cool. I don't want to be tight like I was today." Ade was in second place in the discus after her three preliminary throws. She took the lead on her second throw in the finals and sealed the gold with a heave of 124-1 on her final try. "I felt more pressure in the preliminaries than I did in the finals," Ade said. "I had to tell myself to relax because I was too tight. I needed to sit down a little bit and get in the shade. With the heat and everything I was a little bit fatigued, but I sat down and got a little rest and was ready to go." That heat may have played a factor when Ade competed in the shot put two hours later. She was the seventh and last qualifier for the finals after she threw 35-11/2 in the prelims, but could not move up with her last three throws. "I think I could have done better but the heat got to me," Ade said. "I tried to stay out of the sun but the humidity was still bad. But I'm happy I made the finals because I didn't know if I would even do that." The Salina Central girls had two medal winners Friday with junior Honesty Powell and sophomore Tammy Williams. Powell reached the finals of the 5A discus and placed sixth. Her top throw of 116-11 came in the preliminaries and she was unable to top 110 feet on her three attempts in the finals. Williams will compete in the long jump at noon today after placing fourth in Friday's triple jump. Her top jump of 35-9 1/4 was only inches shy of the personal best 36-0 she went last week to win the regional title. Central's Christina Frost and Jessica Williams both qualified for today's finals on the track, Frost in the 200-meter dash and Williams in the 400. The Mustangs also qualified their 400 and 1,600 relay teams. Salina South's only competitor Friday was junior Hallee Chronister in the 100 hurdle preliminaries. Chronister finished with the eighth-best time (16.79) and failed to qualify for the finals.

'S'-J T HIGH SCHOOL SORBALL: CLASS 5A, 4A Great Bend, Maize ,[',: to play in semifinals! qualifying first in the 110 hurdles (15.3), 300 hurdles (38.99), open 400 (49.39) and 1,600 relay (3:26.5). Winning his 110 hurdles heat was important, said Carter, who never looked back. "It helped me realize what I could do here," said Carter, a senior, whose previous best state finish was fourth in the 300 hurdles last year. "I was pretty nervous before that. "I think I'm pretty confident after today." Cullens triple-jumps to gold Sharon Springs' Jarrett Cullens got off to a rough start when he fell in the 110 hurdles and did not post a time in the 300 hurdles. The senior did come back to win the triple jump with a leap of 45- 2'/2. Manwarren tosses five-hitter as Panthers turn back Ark City 4-1 By The Journal Staff Great Bend pitcher Cortney Manwarren won't overpower very many batters. But she's a tough customer on the mound, nonetheless. Manwarren struck one batter, but allowed just five hits to lead Great Bend to a 4-1 victory over Arkansas City in a quarterfinal game Friday in the Class 5A state softball tournament at the East Crawford Recreation Complex. "Cortney threw a great game," Great Bend coach Chuck Tracy said. "She hit the spots and changed speeds real well. "They were getting squeezed on the strike zone, but she still put it where they couldn't hit it. She won't blow the ball by people, but she keeps them off stride." Great Bend took advantage of two Ark City errors, a run-scoring sacrifice bunt by Kelly Miller and an RBI single by Tony Schartz during a three-run third inning. Great Bend managed four hits. "We played pretty solid defensively," Tracy said. Great Bend plays second-seeded Maize at 11 a.m., today in the semifinals. Maize 12, Aquinas 2 Maize (21-2) made sure there would be a new state champion. Maize broke open a close game with seven runs in the fifth inning, taking advantage of six walks, three hits and two errors. Mandy Frasco was the winning pitcher. Amanda Eshelbrenne'r' took the loss. Leah Mountain had;', two hits for Maize and Amy Chris-' tiansen two for Aquinas (16-7). »••/ Shawnee Heights 4, Carroll O'" P Dana Martin handcuff Carroll" on three hits and Heights took ad-' vantage of four hits in its victorjr.
