PAGE 32 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1976- Tucson sportlight Polintan rolls 300 Alfred Polintan vowed that next season the Philippine- American Club he bowls in will be sanctioned by the American Bowling Congress. But for Polintan that may be too late. Polin- tan became the eighth Tucson bowler during the 1975-76 league that has rolled a 300 game. It was Polintan's first perfect game in more than 20 years of bowling, but unfortunately it wasn't sanctioned. Well maybe he can do it again next year, when the league is approved.

Spurts Capsules jets to name Holtz -· NEW YORK (AP) -- Lou Holtz, who rejuvenated North Carolina State's football program almost overnight, has been chosen as the new head coach of the National Football League's New York Jets, The Associated Press learned last night. The Jets, it was learned from sources close to the team, will hold a news conference later today to make the selection official. A spokesman for the Jets declined to confirm the report. Earlier in the day Holtz cancelled a speaking engagement in Charlotte and flew to New York for talks with Al Ward, the Jets' general manager. Shaw awarded Sullivan LOS ANGELES (AP) -- World record swimmer Tim Shaw, an 18-year-old from Long Beach, Calif., yesterday became the 46th winner of the James E. Sullivan Memorial Trophy as the Amateur Athletic Union's outstanding competitor of 1975. Shaw, who holds records in the 400, 800, and 1,500-meter freestyle events beat out two other Californians for the national honors. Bruce Jenner, 26, of San Jose, Calif., who holds the world decathlon record, placed second and Shirley Babashoff, 18, star woman freestyle swimmer from Mission Viejo, Calif., finished third. 3OO ivorth $210,000 WINDSOR LOCKS.

Joe Antenora, PBA executive director, said three perfect games have been rolled on the Pro Bowlers tour since it began its regular Saturday afternoon telecasts 15 years ago. Midas International Corp., sponsor of the Midas Open here at Bradley Bowl, is contributing $200,000 and ABC-TV is chipping in $10,000. First place prize in the tournament is $14,000. Goolagong tops list NEW YORK (AP) -- Evonne Goolagong, who became the first woman to post two victories on the women's pro tennis circuit when she beat Virginia Wade 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 in the final of the tour's Akron, Ohio stop last weekend, leads the 1976 earnings list with $31,525. Miss Wade, who has finished second in each of the three events in which she has competed, is next with $29,600, according to the weekly figures released yesterday. Tucson hosts Amphi West race still scramble Pro Basketball NBA EASTERN CONFERENCE Atlantic Division Total fouls: Kansas City 21, Houston 23. Technicals Kansas Cllv Coach Johnson. A: 3.5fi8, Cage Scores By STEVE CHANDLER Citizen Sportswriter When George Genung says he's never seen a Southern AAA West League race as tight and balanced as this season's, it's no casual observation. Genung has seen a lot of races in his 29 years as head basketball coach at Amphi High School, and this year's conference scramble delights him. "It's great to have it this way," said Genung. "I've never seen the league quite like this, where everybody is capable of beating everybody else. It's the way high school athletics should always be." Genung's Panthers meet Tucson High at Rincon tonight at 7 p.m. in another important West League contest. Amphi is in sixth with a 3-5 league record and Tucson is tied for fourth with Cholla -- both teams have 4-4 marks. The Southern AAA West is a seven-team league out of which only the top four finishers advance to the divisional tournaments at the end of February. Currently Salpointe leads the West with a 7-2 mark and is only one game away from insuring a playoff spot. After Salpointe, five teams are locked in a remarkably tight struggle for the remaining three playoff positions. Those five teams -- Sunnyside, Pueblo, Tucson, Cholla and Amphi -- will battle it out over the next 10 days for a chance at the divisional. The divisional tournament, to be held Feb. 26, 27 28, will decide which two from the Southern Division's eight finalists (four West and four East teams) will play in the state tournament to be held in Tempe the first -week in March. "The talent seems so evenly matched at this point it will be the team with the most pride, the most desire and the most interest in being a contender that succeeds," said Genung of the West League stretch drive. Tonight's contest will be played at Rincon High School and is considered a home game for the Tucson Badgers. Tucson's gym is being rebuilt, and Charlie Cook's team has not played a real home game all season. Despite that, the Badgers have the fourth-best overall record in the city (12-7) and are the only team in the state this year to have beaten Rincon. Tucson is led by sophomore center-forward David Vann, who is averaging 21.5 points a game (fourth among city's scorers). Vann's one-hand, fade-away jump shot from any distance has given opponents fits. "That rascal is awful to guard!" exclaimed Genung. "I've never seen a player use David Tucson threat Figueroas have Rillito favorite The father-son team of Manny and Louie Figueroa will be sending the favorite to the post in tomorrow's featured thoroughbred allowance at Rillito Race Track. The F i g u e r o a - t r a i n e d Dreamolark will be ridden in the f o u r - f u r l o n g race by Louie, a leading jockey at the track. Dreamolark placed second in her last two outs after a slow start. The six-year-old mare will carry only 113 Ibs in the $650 eighth race.

Here is a summary of the other Tucson-area games being played tonight: Canyon del Oro (53, 9-9) ;it Flawing Weils (J-5, 5-12): A month ago this wouldn't have- been considered much of a contest, but Flowing Wells has come on strong lately. Rincon (7-0, 18-1) at Sahuaro (5-3, 10-9): Rincon solidly trounced the Cougars twice this season but Sahuaro displayed the type of fierce inside aggressiveness against Sabino last week that could make things closer this time. Salpoinle (7-2, 14-4) at Cholla (4-4, 7-12): The Lancers can sew up a playoff berth with u victory tonight. A loss would be a big setback to the Chargers' hopes. Santa Rita (0-7, 4-15) at Palo Verde (3-4, 8-II): The Eagles are in the role of spoilers in the East now that they've been eliminated from the playoff race. Sunnyside (6-3, 12-6) at Catalina (1-8, 3-15): Catalina's Dave Westenburg scored 35 last week against Tucson High to boost the junior forward to the No. 2 spot in the city in scoring. The Trojans are already out of the West League race and Sunnyside is in second place.
