6E THE TENHESSEAN TfwwhyMAV 23, 1985 Raleigh-Egypt to Invade McGavock in A AA 4, Semifinals Lipscomb, Marshall Co. Rained Out, Will Try Again This Afternoon By CINDY SMITH Imagine the frustration of last year's Memphis Raleigh-Egypt baseball team. The Pharaohs had upset archrival Germantown and hosted the McGavock Raiders in Memphis for the TSSAA Class AAA state semifinals. It was the perfect setting for the Raleigh-Egypt squad to earn a berth in the state finals but fate, in the form of super pitcher Dan Eskew, prevailed. Eskew hurled a no-hitter, and McGavock went on to win the state AAA title. Tonight, the Raleigh-Egypt Pharaohs have a chance to avenge last year's 6-0 whipping at the hands of McGavock. The Memphis squad will invade McGavock at 7 p.m. as once again the two teams meet in the AAA state baseball semifinals. "If I were a member of their team, I'd have more on my mind than the no-hitter," said McGavock third baseman Jeff Abner. "I'm not thinking about them. I'm thinking about how I'm going to hit and whether or not I make any errors throwing to f irsL" The Pharaohs also won't have to think about Eskew, he graduated last spring. Preps The Midstate area is well-represented in the state semifinals in both baseball and Softball. In Class AAA, Columbia with a 26-5 overall record is taking the long trip to Sullivan North in Kingsport for the upper bracket semis. Sullivan North, the defending AAA state runnerup last season, has a 27-8 record. Class AAA Softball features the Overton Bobkit-tens, 26-2, on the road at Germantown, 23-7. In the opposite bracket Chattanooga Red Bank, 23-2, hosts Maryville William Blount, 23-8. The one problem game statewide is the yet-to-be-played David Lipscomb at Marshall County AA quarterfinal. Rained out since Monday, the two schools will try again today at 4 p.m. to determine which squad advances to the semifinal round against Decatur County Riverside. "They'll just have to try and play the Lipscomb-Marshall County game when they can and .then play the semifinals as soon as possible, probably this weekend," said Gil Gideon, executive director of the TSSAA. The Lipscomb-Marshall County game is tied at 3-all after three and a half innings. In the AA upper bracket, unbeaten Unicoi County hosts Chattanooga Central. In AA sofball, the Cinderella Madison Ramettes will play in Memphis against Memphis Catholic tomorrow at 4 p.ra Madison is 13-10 while Catholic has a 28-5 overall mark. The Class A division features Summertown hosting Memphis Skyview and Knoxville Webb hosting Upperman in baseball. The Softball semis find Culleoka at Memphis Skyview and Lookout Valley at Westmoreland. Yesterday, the rain chased the McGavock Raiders indoors to practice, not head coach Mel Brown's first choice. The players agreed that if they were in Raleigh-Egypt's shoes, they'd be looking for revenge. "We know that they've got a good team, one that's tough to beat," said Tommy Randolph, starting ace lefthander with a 12-0 record. A 4 .J ' . ' tWW Itfttfl ittipiliplli mm A 1 V&h Jeff Abner Voices Concerns Tommy Randolph Gets the Nod Steroid Crackdown Urged (From First Sports Page) "The responsibility is ours, and I plan to do all within my power in the next few months to get this message across to the leaders of our intercollegiate programs," Murphy said. Murphy said a recent study conducted by Michigan State discloses "an alarming growth" in the number of college athletes using anabolic steroids. The Michigan State study covered 11 schools in all three Divisions of the NCAA. "The Michigan State research also determined that many anabolic steroid users went undetected because the tests now utilized fail to pick up the drug after a six to eight week period. This is one of the reasons it is so very important that university officials working with student-athletes must accept the responsibility for pointing out the dangers of the drug, and forbidding its usage," Murphy said. Murphy also echoes the sentiments of many other physicians who, in recent months, have disclosed that more and more high school athletes are becoming involved with anabolic steroids. "I suppose I'm now averaging at least one call per week from high school and college coaches, parents and athletes asking for a guidance program to use anabolic steroids," Murphy said. "I make every effort to discourage them, and I will not prescribe the drug. Nor do I believe any conscientious physician should prescribe or condone this group of drugs. "Put as simply as I know how to say it, there is no reason for any person to use these drugs for the purpose of improving athletic performance. "Quite frankly, I don't believe a testing program implemented by the NCAA is the answer to this problem. It must be conducted at the individual college level. "I'm not sure, either, just how far I will get with the BiglO or the NCAA in my proposals to order stringent penalties. But for the next several months, I'm going to do everything possible to help curtail this problem which I consider to be the most serious threat of all to the health of our college and high school athletes." Carrier Heads LPGA CORNING, N.Y. (AP) Joanne Carner says she has finally beaten the influenza and bronchial asthma that plagued her for months and is ready to defend her title in this weekend's $250,000 LPGA Corning Classic. Carner started the Ladies Professional Golf Association season right with a victory at the Elizabeth Arden Classic in early February, but it was downhill from there. Her lung ailment left her tired and wheezing, and some of the medications she took blurred her vision and made her hands shake something a golfer cannot afford. "I never get sick, so you think it's going to go away," she said. She played sick for five tournaments, took a break and then returned in late April for the S&H Golf Classic, where she holed 20 birdies but managed to end up only 3 strokes under par for the tournament. Since then she has rested for three more weekends, spending eight days sailing to the Bahamas with her husband. "I feel good," she said yesterday, apologizing for an especially raspy voice that she blamed on smoking, not illness. Carner won by 4 shots last year over Ayako Okamoto with a 7-under-par 281 on four circuits of the 6,050-yard, par-72 Corning Country Club course. The prize pool last year was $150,000. This year it was increased to $250,000. The field of 135 golfers this year includes 16 of the tour's top 25 money-winners and six of the top 10: Alice Miller, Patty Sheehan, Pat Bradley, Jan Stephenson, Betsy King and Beth Daniel. Nancy Lopez, who won last weekend's Chrysler Plymouth Classic, is skipping he tournament All the past Corning champions are entered: Carner (1984), Sheehan (1983), Sandra Spuzich (1982), Kathy Hite (1981), Donna Caponi (1980) and Penny Pulz (1979).

UT Vol Network Will Raise Fees KNOXVILLE (UPI) The University of Tennessee is raising the fee it charges Knoxville radio stations to carry Big Orange football games on the Vol Network, station managers said yesterday. Vol Network football broadcasts were carried by 135 stations last fall, but only stations in Knoxville pay a fee to the university. The per-game fee will increase from $500 to $900 next season. The university does not sell football broadcast rights to a single, highest-bidding station in the Knoxville market Instead, the school sells the broadcast to any Knoxville station willing to pay the fee four stations last fall. Some Knoxville stations had hoped Athletics Director Bob Woodruff would put the Knoxville broadcast rights up for bids, which would bring the university more money. But Woodruff said he wanted several stations carrying the Vols. "We're interested in coverage as well as income. We'll continue what we've been doing," Woodruff said. Tennessee basketball games are carried by 55 stations on the Vol Network. Decathlon Starts Today at AABA McGavock's Sadler Awaiting Girls' Pentathlon Tomorrow By CINDY SMITH Walking on the track for her leg of the 1600 meter relay, McGavock's Jan Sadler was one tired young lady. It had been a long and fairly successful day in the TSSAA Class AAA state track meet at Montgomery Bell Academy for the Lady Raider senior. She had placed second in the long jump and second in both the low and intermediate hurdle races. Sadler's only real disappointment was in the high jump in which she did not place, and although she gave her best, the McGavock team did not win a medal in the 1600 meter relay. But, three seconds in the state meet ought to be good enough for anyone, right? Not for Sadler a winner if ever there was one. And, she should be the big winner at MBA in the girls' pentathlon. The decathlon for boys, a two-day event, opens today at 9:30 am and continues tomorrow. The pentathlon for girls, a one-day event, is held tomorrow only with a 9:30 am starting time. "Being in five events is tiring, but it's a good warm-up for the pentathlon," said Sadler. "You have to be in the best shape to be in the pentathlon or you're in trouble." In previous years, the TSSAA has sponsored a regional and a state two- Prep Track O day decathlon and pentathlon. This year, there was a decision to have the state only. It is open to all athletes across the state. "By having the state only, they'll be able to gauge the interest in the event," said Mike Drake, Montgomery Bell Academy assistant headmaster who runs the event and knows as much about the in-coming talent as anyone. "Jan Sadler is clearly the class of the field of the entries I've received so far," said Drake. "I could still hear from Memphis Prep's Elizabeth Peek or Linda Gartner of Collierville who could both do well." Drake said that he had received 36 entries for the boys and 17 for the girls. The first day of the decathlon consists of the 100 meter dash, the shot put, the long jump, high jump and the 400 meter dash. On the second day, the boys compete in the hurdles, the pole vault, the triple jump, discus and the 1600 meter run. The girls compete today in the hurdles, the shot put, the long jump, the high jump and the 800 meter run. Sadler would win the hurdles, long jump and high jump as well as picking up bonus points for her performance in those events. The defending girls' champ, Terk-eler Shegog has graduated as has the defending decathlon champion, McCallie's Peter Hunt. "The favorite this year ought to be Memphis Mitchell's Nico Perkins," said Drake. In the state track meet, Perkins won both hurdle races. Perkins placed third overall in the decathlon last year. His top competition should come from two locals, Montgomery Bell Academy's Steve Rollins and Brentwood High's Scott Hartman. If Overton's Chuck Sorrow has recovered from knee surgery, he'll be a threat Without a regional competition, the locals will be going head-to-head, and it should be a good fight Both Rollins and Hartman are in top-notch shape. Hartman won the Class A-AA pole vault last weekend and placed second in the discus with a throw of 154-5. His vault was 12-6. Rollins, a state wrestling champion, has spent a good deal of time concentrating on the decathlon. His best event is the hurdles, but he can turn in consistent performances in all of the 10 events. Rollins and Hartman have the stamina to do well over the long haul.
