Central netters place second at McPherson McPHERSON — Boasting doubles champions Ashley Wilson and Sydney Moshier and singles finalist Amanda Garlow, the Salina Central girls tennis team placed second with 101 points at the 14-team McPherson Invitational Saturday. Salina South, led by Julie Mueting's third-place singles finish, placed fourth with 83 points. McPherson's A-team topped the field with 106 points, while Great Bend was third with 89. Besides its two finalists, Central also received a strong finish from its doubles tandem of Shusten Turnquist and Jennifer Mize, who placed fourth. "I was real pleased," Central coach Jim LoVullo said. "It's the highest finish (there) that I can remember. I knew we were capable if we had everyone playing on the same page on the same day." Moshier and Wilson lost just three games in four matches and put an exclamation point on their performance with an 8-0 victory in the finals. "They took care of business," LoVullo said. Meanwhile, Turnquist and Mize won back-to-back tie-breaker matches to spark their top-four doubles finish. "They turned out two important wins," LoVullo said. "It was full of peaks and valleys, but they were good wins." Garlow cruised through her side of the bracket before losing to McPherson's Kristin Bohnenblust in the finals. "Working her way into the finals will build her confidence," LoVullo said. Central's other singles entry, Jenny Collins, lost her opening- round match to Mueting before winning three straight matches and settling for 18th. "She's playing some of her best tennis now," LoVullo said. Beside Mueting, South's other placers included Anna Feyerherm (10th in singles); and Rebecca Dunlap and Becky Day (llth in doubles). Southeast of Saline spikers 1-3 at Concordia CONCORDIA — Competing in a pool that produced the top two finishers, Southeast of Saline's volleyball team finished 1-3 at Saturday's Concordia Invitational. The Trojans opened play with a 15-0,15-10 loss to Belleville. "We didn't go ready to play against Belleville," Southeast coach Bill Gies said. "We didn't play well at the net at all. They're really big — 6-1,5-10 in the middle — and we're 5-8, 5-8. We've got to be awake." Southeast then lost to eventual tournament champion and perennial 4A power Concordia, 15-0,153. "We played a lot better at the net," Gies said. "We had eight stuffed blocks as a team, but we didn't compete. We let them dominate us mentally, which they do to a lot of teams because they're so good." Southeast then responded with a 12-15,15-12,15-8 victory over Beloit, "We had a sophomore hitter really come to the front for us," said Gies, referring to the eight blocks and one stuffed block from Shala Bloomberg, "She hit about 80 percent from the floor and did some good things. "But we made the match way too hard. We had a chance to do some things early and put them away." The Trojans then fell to tournament runner-up Marysville, 15-11, 15-3. On the day, Southeast was led by Crystal Giersch (19 service points, 26 assists), Chelsie Schwarz (12 service points), Jackie Dupes (10 service points) and Heidi Ptacek (7 assists, 7 service points). At the net, Anne Johnson had nine kills and Missy Smith four. From Staff and Wire Reports FALL MEMBERSHIP SPECIAL Join Now & Pay No Monthly Owes 'Til Apr/7 1st, 1998!

Salina native Wells wins KW meet Now with Colby College, Sacred Heart grad wins for first time in Salina By LARRY MORITZ Tlie Salina Journal Sara Wells had to go all the way to Colby before she could finally come home and win a race. The Sacred Heart High School graduate never ran a cross country event in Salina during her years with the Knights' program. Now in her first year at Colby Community College, Wells returned to Salina Saturday for the Kansas Wesleyan Invitational and was the winner of the 3.1-mile women's race in 20:34 at Bill Burke and Indian Rock parks. Wells competed in as many as five sports during her playing days at Sacred Heart, but now focuses primarily on her running at the junior college level. "I think just having a team to run with and having a set thing to do has made a big difference," Wells said. "When you know your running is all you have to work on, you can work harder." Wells trailed by nearly 25 meters as the runners made their way up Indian Rock near the midway point of the race. By the time the competitors came off the Rock, Wells had taken the lead and was able to pull away over the flat portion of the course for a five-second margin of victory over teammate Danielle Nejdl. "Our coach (Kirk Hunter) told us to try as a team at the beginning to get in front and slow the pace down a little," Wells said. "Then at two miles go hard. In the first three minutes of the third mile he wants us to go hard, and if you do that you can usually keep on going all the way in." Colby won the women's team title with 27 points, followed by Cloud County with 59 and Kansas Wesleyan at 92. Cloud County was led by Misty Cole of Washington in seventh (21:06) and McPherson's Sarah Bradshaw in eighth (21:15). Colby made it a clean sweep of the meet's individual and team championships. Freshman Junior Vasquez ran a 28:27 to win the men's race, nine seconds ahead of Tabor's Jeremy Jost in second. The Colby men, with 48 points, topped second-place Highland Community College (78). Tabor had 80. "Coming into the race I had been having trouble with shin splints," Vasquez said. "When you run with an injury like that, the pain starts nagging and nagging and nagging until you have to stop. But today I was fortunate it didn't bother me." Vasquez and Jost were running nearly side by side after they came off Indian Rock for a second time, but Vasquez began to put some distance between his nearest competitor in the final half mile. "Sometimes the kick works and sometimes it doesn't," Vasquez said. "It feels good to win a race and I should thank Wayne Tate and Ron Reed, two good friends who have supported me for a long time." Wesleyan junior Danielle Bornefeld was the top finisher for the Coyotes, placing fourth in the women's race with a time of 20:47, "I was happy with my time and that's what I was aiming for)" Bornefeld said. "I think last week I ran a little bit faster, but there were more hills on this course. , "This is my first year competing again after four years off and we finally have a team here now. When you take four years off, it's hard to remember what it was like and get your racing strategy back right away, but I'm having fun and that's the important thing." The Bethany women placed sixth and the men seventh. The Swedes top finishes came from Casey Belknap in 12th (29:30) and Janell Duryee in 13th (22:00). Eric Meyer of Linn placed fourth (28:51) in the men's race for Cloud County as the Thunderbirds were fifth in the team standings. In addition to Vasquez, Colby had top 10 finishes from Way Ion Lawson (6th, 29:01) and Shane Osterhaus (8th, 29:11). Colby's Amy Aumiller, Catherine Walquist and Michelle Hein placed ninth through llth, respectively.
