Page 16 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Wednesday, March 23, 1988 Sports Evans Reclaims World Record 16-year-old swims fastest 800 meters for second time ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - At 5-foot-3 and 99 pounds, Janet Evans is becoming a giant in the swimming pool. Evans, 16, of Placentia, Calif., set a world record in the 800- meter freestyle Tuesday in the first event of the U.S. Swimming indoor national championships. Evans was timed in eight minutes, 17.12 seconds and now holds world records in the 400, 800 and 1,500-meter freestyles, the most by any American woman since Debbie Meyer in 1968. East Germany's Cornelia Ender held three world records simultaneously in 1976. The women's 800 freestyle world record has now changed hands three times in the past nine months after standing un- touched from 1978 to 1987. Evans was the first to break the mark last July with a time of 8:22.44 at the U.S. Swimming Long Course National Championships. East Germany's Anke Mohring swam the race in 8:19.53 a month after Evans broke the record swim and held the mark until Tuesday. "This was more important than my other records, because I had the record, then lost it, then got it back." Evans said. The world record of 8:24.62 was held by Australia's Tracey Wickham from of 1978 until 1987. "The race wasn't tough except the last 25 meters," Evans said. "I felt lactic acid in my arms, and I was saying to myself, 'Help. Get me out of this. I want NIT Associated Press Janet Evans (R) celebrates new world record to be done.'" Evans pushed hard from the start of the race. She was only two seconds slower than her world record for the 400 halfway through the event and won by 35 meters over Debbie Babashoff of Fountain Valley, Calif., who was timed in 8:38.17. Evans said she wasn't concerned at all when Mohring beat her 800 record last August. "I read it in the paper," Evans said. "I was going to Disneyland with friends that day. I wasn't mad. I went to Disneyland and had fun." The meet continues the rest of the week, with Evans hoping to set marks in the 400 and 1500 freestyle and the 400 individual medley. » Meanwhile, away from the pool, the New York Times reported Wednesday that three- time 1984 Olympic gold medalist Rowdy Gaines was ruled ineligible to compete in Friday's 400-meter freestyle relay unless he puts all money he has earned in endorsements and appearances since 1984 in a trust fund. Fans: Bearcat Tourney Luck Rubs Off MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - Wesley and Peggy Strauch have had such good luck recently they feel certain it's tied in with Muncie Central's success in the high school basketball tournament. On Sunday, Strauch won a Lincoln automobile, one day after the Bearcats captured the Indianapolis semistate to reach the final four. The $28,000 car isn't the only evidence of Bearcat magic. Mrs. Strauch came into an unexpected $2,000 inheritance. Then the couple won $75 in the Ohio lottery. Strauch, owner of a carpet firm, won the car at an Indi- anapolis trade show he attended only because he was in town for the semistate game. Strauch had bought enough commercial carpet padding at the trade show to get two chances in the drawing for the car. Steve Strauch, the couple's son, was so confident his parents' winning streak would continue he stayed in Indianapolis after the game Saturday just so he could drive their old car home when they won the new one. When the family entered the room where the winning ticket would be drawn, they saw sev- Football Coaches Name Association Officers INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Bob Gaddis of Danville High School has been elected president of the Indiana Football Coaches Association for 1988-89.

And a promotional sign on the car was painted in purple. One hundred tickets were drawn, and Strauch's was the last selected. "Steve walked out of the room when we got down to 98. He couldn't take it any more. He knew there were only two names left. It was just too much," Strauch said, "It was quite a weekend," the 1950 Central graduate added. The Strauchs decorated their new car with purple and white streamers for the drive home. "Purple and white. It was just meant to be," Strauch said. "I don't think we would have been there if the Bearcats hadn't been there." Strauch said he will drive his lucky car to Market Square Arena Saturday to watch his the Bearcats play for what he hopes will be Muncie Central's eighth state championship. "We're going to take the car back this week and come home with number eight," he said. Soviets To Tour Vs.

I9B8 JCPennwy Company, fnc JG Penney Logansport Mall Continued from page 13 The Indians, who trailed by as many as seven points in the second half, held the ball for the final 42 seconds. Johnson took a pass on the right baseline and was fouled by Stanford's Howard Wright with the clock at :00 but before the buzzer sounded. After Stanford called two timeouts trying to rattle the reserve guard, he calmly sank the first of two shots with a standing-room-only crowd screaming. "I was just looking down the floor and did not look at anybody — not the crowd, not my teammates, not my coach," Johnson said. "On the bench (during a timeout), the coach said whether I made the free throws or not, we had had a great year. But I thought, 'Wait a minute, the year's not over yet.'" It is for Stanford, appearing in its first postseason tournament since winning the NCAAs in 1942. in deep foul trouble, Anderson was limited to 18 points, but got 16 of them in the second half. "We knew Baynham was a good player and he proved it tonight. We didn't do a good job on him," Bulldogs Coach Hugh Durham said. "We didn't guard him and he stuck it in the hole.'' Ohio St. 86, Cleveland St. 80 Ohio State, which trailed by by 10 points midway through the second half, rallied to take its own 10-point lead with less than four minutes remaining. The Vikings, 22-8, couldn't catch up, despite 32 points from Ken McFadden. Jay Burson led host Ohio State with 22 points, while Jerry Francis had 21. the Buckeyes, 18-12, won the NIT two years ago. "It's an in-state game, so it's an emotional situation," Buckeyes Coach Gary Williams said. "Tonight was like another Big Ten game. Cleveland State wants to play Ohio State badly." Middle Tenn. St. 69, Georgia 59 Ty Baynham's 24 points paced host MTSU, an Ohio Valley member which beat an SEC foe for the second straight round. Earlier, the Blue Raiders ousted Tennessee from the tournament. Baynham not only scored 13 points in the first half, he helped put Georgia star Willie Anderson Colorado State 71, Houston 61 Pat Durham scored 25 points and David Turcotte added 21 at Colorado State, where the Rams shot 57 percent. CSU, 20-12, reached 20 victories for only the second time in its history. Houston, led by center Rolando Ferreira's 21 points, finished the year 18-13. Houston rallied for a 53-52 lead on Horace Chaney's fifth 3- pointer of the game with 4:53 remaining. But the Rams reclaimed the lead for good less than a minute later. Trent Shippen's steal set up a layup by Turcotte. He was fouled and missed the free throw, but Eric Friehauf tipped it in for a 56-53 lead with 4:06 left. New Mexico 78, Oregon 59 At Albuquerque, freshman Rob Robbins scored 23 points and New Mexico hit 33 of 47 free throws. New Mexico steadily pulled away from a 29-26 halftime lead and outscored the Ducks 12-3 over the final four minutes. Oregon, which got a 30-point effort from senior guard Anthony Taylor, was whistled for 33 fouls. Starters Randy Grant, Brett Coffey and Keith Balderson fouled out, while the other two starters, Tailor and guard Frank Johnson, finished with four fouls each. "I just don't think we got a chance to play. By this time, you should get a chance do play," Oregon Coach Don Monson said.
