Page 14 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Thursday, March 17, 1988 Sports Sports Challenge Idaville's Jim Hunt Repeats As Top Sectional Predictor For the second straight year, Jim Hunt, of Idaville, has won the Pharos-Tribune's Sectional Sports Challenge. Hunt, manager of the Hanenkratt Grain Idaville elevator, correctly picked 42 out of 64 sectional champions. As his prize, Hunt will receive two tickets to see the Indiana-Kentucky All-Star Games in Indianapolis on June 25 in Market Square Arena. This is only the second year he has entered the contest. He also selected 42 of the 1987 champions to win last year's contest. Hunt has also entered twice — and won twice — in a similar contest in the Monticello Herald Journal, the past two years. "That's a pretty good winning percentage," Hunt quipped, after learning of his accomplishment, "That's better than Purdue or Indiana or anybody." Hunt tried to downplay his skill at picking the winners, saying "Everybody has to get lucky sometime." Hunt said his methods are no secret. He studies the records of teams and uses the computer rankings of teams, published in the Bloomington Herald-Telephone. He said he usually goes with one of the top three computer-ranked teams, although his selection is also based on site and hunch. Among the area sectionals, Hunt correctly picked Logansport, Tri-County and Kokomo to win their own tournaments and Oregon-Davis to win the North Judson sectional. He missed at Lafayette, picking Harrison instead of Jefferson and at Triton, where he selected Warsaw instead of winner Tippecanoe Valley. Hunt's nearest competitor, among the 49 entrants, was Logansport Schools Superintendent Steve Kain, who picked 39 correct sectional champs. John Westfall of Monticello and Todd Boldry, a freshman basketball player for Caston High School, from Macy, tied for third, with 38 right picks. Jim Hunt wins second sectional contest Moss Leads Four Lewis Cass Players On All-Conference Lewis Cass High School had three boys and one girl mentioned in voting for the All-Mid- Indiana Conference basketball teams. Senior Brad Moss made the boys' first team, while Dave Collins earned second-team recognition and Rick Mosby received honorable mention. Angie Cree, a freshman on the Kings' all-underclassman varsity team, was voted to the girls' all-conference second team. Lewis Cass' boys finished in a three-way tie for the MIC championship, as the Kings, Western and Eastbrook all finished with 4-2 league records. Maconaquah won the girls MIC title, with a 6-0 mark. Lewis Cass placed sixth. Below are final standings and all-conference team selections from the Mid-Indiana Conference.
