Track athletes sweep old marks under the rug By ASSOCIATED Ml ESS After week* of improvioc by tepttt, MooUn»'i ichoolbojr tfalncUtft toned out a raft of new "betU" over the weekend, Improving on eifht of 17 prevtoui top perfomutKet while the (Iris backed off to divisional meets with only (our of 14 event* Improved upon.. The most sensational Individual performances were turned In by Glasgow high jumper Dennis Gay and Bit- lings West's Sally Stenejhem. Gay obliterated the Eastern A meet record with a leap of 6 feet, 8 Inches. Had it come a week later in the state finals, the jump would have been a state record. Stenejhem, only a junior, turned In a 56.6-second quartermlte -- the fastest ever by a Montana schoolgirl, and more than a second under the state record. A boy whose division record also would have qualified as the state standard had it come a week later was Scott Ferda of Great Falls. Kerda lowered the seasonal best In the high hurdles to 14.2 seconds. Ferda's Bison teammate Mike Guon turned In a remarkable 440-yard-dash performance with a 49- second-flal effort in trials and a 48.8 In the finals. Greg Stene of Columbus broke a five-way logjam In the 100 with a 9.8-secood clocking, while Butte's Mike Houlihan established a new season best in the mile by turning four laps in 4:21.0. Ronan's Jim Darlington threw the shot 56-U4 and Ken Smith of Great Falls whipped the javelin 201-10, just 10 inches better than Glasgow's Mike Hagfeldt, who also topped the previous standard. Two mile-relay teams, Anaconda and Butte, pushed each other to exceed one of the oldest marks of the roundup, a 3:28.8 by Billings Senior. Times were close in the half-mile for both boys and girls. Vic Pipinich of Great Falls came within one-tenth second of tying the season best of 1:57.8 by Miles City's Brad Sheldon.

The team leaves Thursday morning for the state tournament in Billings. Photo by George Geise Flathead rated as longshot in state prep golf tourney By GEORGE GEISE Inter Lake Sports Editor Western Divisional boys golf champion Flathead will be a darkhorse candidate'to win the state golf tournament when the annual classic begins Friday at Laurel Country Club. Coach Dick Schlatter predicted Tuesday that the host Laurel and several other Eastern Division schools would be the pre-tonrnament favorite. Laurel fired a twfrday team total of 615 last weekend at the Miles City course to beat'Billings West by 13 shots. By comparision, the Flathead team won the Western Divisional by 11 strokes over Hell gate with a 643 total. Schlatter said Butte from the Southern Division was another likely contender, but he doubted whether any of the Northern Division schools would be a serious threat. Great Falls High won the Northern tourney with a 690 total over the tough Meadowlark Country Club course. Flathead's Western Divisional medalist Phil Schlatter is the only player on the team with a sub-80 average. Phil is averaging 79.4 per round, followed by brother Cub at 82, Mike Parker at .fiSY-'HugJir Paris at 83.8 and Dave Broeder at 84.6. "I doubt whether we can play much better as a team then we did last weekend," Schlatter said. "It was our best-balanced team effort." It may take more than balance to take the title away from the eastern schools. Players shot so much better at Miles City that a score of 158 was good for tenth place. In the Western Divisional, 158 would have placed third in the tournament. In girls competition, Flathead is an extreme longsbot although junior Barb Muller is a good bet to place among the top 10 individuals. She won the Western Divisional by 15 strokes last weekend. Muller, with a stroke average of 98.3, and Vickie Herbold with 121.2 will carry Flathead's hopes in girls play- There will be about 100 boys and 45 girls entered in the tournament. There are 16 full boys teams and 12 full girls teams. The 36-hole meet begins at 8 Friday morning. Other area players entered include the entire Libby boys team, Dave Draeger and Roger Hutchins of Whitefish, Mark Lies of Poison and Bob LeBlanc of Eureka. Suns' Westphal reaching peak BOSTON (AP) - Plunftaf Mo ft* V*l*jr 4 the Sou has helped Paul We*tptal md) kb pMfc is professional basketball. But. oae of the few dwmUllt be hM «- couQtered during his first team with the Phoenix SOTS was last SwMtejr's opotaf fame ol the National BasketbaU Association's nationally televised best-of-ieven championship series against the Boston Celtics. la that game, a 9M7 loss to bis former teammates, W«*tphal, the Suns' leading scorer, bit only four of 17 field goal attempts and scored eight points. Boston Coach Tom Heinsohn, however, is quite cognizant of Westphal's capabilities and doesn't figure the Suns' hard-driving guard to have such a poor showing in Thursday night's Game Two at the Boston Garden. "They'll be looking to go to Westy," said Heinsohn. "He's a big part of their offense. He could break out. He's a good shooter, and he could come back and hit 10 of 17." Heinschn's decision to put Jo Jo White on Westphal was credited with adversely affecting the play of the Suns' backcourtman. During the regular season, Westphal had been guarded by Charlie Scott, the player he had been traded for a year ago. Heinsohn explained that he made the change because he wanted Scott guarding the Phoenix player bringing the ball upcourt, in this case, rookie Ricky Sobers. That job had been Westphal's earlier in the season, but when Dick Van Arsdale suffered a broken bone in his left arm, Sobers took his place in the lineup and has been there ever since. White also had been familiar with Westphal, having played against him during practice for three years. The Suns basically are a pattern offensive team, using a lot of picks and cuts in attempts to set up open shots, and under the system, the quick Westphal is the player they go to most often. Because of his former association with the Celtics, Westphal has been under extreme pressure since it was determined a week ago that it would be a Boston-Phoenix final. "I think there has been a lot of pressure on Paul," said Van Arsdale. "I know I would feel it if I were in bis place." Westphal has been trying to relax and maintain his stamina during the long spell between games by playing tennis. But he still harbors some bitter feelings towards the Celtics and is hoping to make amends for his poor opening game with a better performance Thursday night. : "The Celtics have this provincial attitude," ; said Westphal. "They say, 'We made the kid a ; player.' I resent that a little. : "I definitely feel I didn't have a chance at : Boston, but I don't really blame anybody. They : like to bring guys up slowly."

The NHL's Board of Governors "served notice" Tuesday that the team's franchise would be terminated if an acceptable arrangement to keep hockey in Kansas City is not submitted before the board's June 7 meeting in Montreal. NHL President Clarence Campbell said the Scouts had received a complaint note from the league informing the club that it had failed to pay dues and also had failed to repay a $300,000 loan secured from the league to complete the 1975-75 season. Campbell said that while the franchise was "technically" terminated Tuesday, official termination "presumably" would take place in Montreal if the team is not sold. The NHL official said Kansas City owner Edwin Thompson had told the league that the Scouts' present ownership is "unable to continue operations and that it has no desire to try to reorganize its finances." Campbell added that the league had no intention of assuming opera- lion of the Scouts. Discussion of the Kansas City situation and of the proposed sale of the California Golden Seals were the chief items on the board of governors' agenda. Campbell said Seals' owner Me! Swig has informed the league of his intentions either to sell the club or to move it from Oakland, but that the Ward receives Daws on award GLEND1VK - Shawn Ward of Bigfork was named the most improved basketball player at Dawson College recently. He is the first player since 1970 to receive that honor. status of his negotiations remains uncertain. The Seals have had money problems under several owners since the team was admitted to the league in 1967. The 10-day, extension was granted to Kansas City Mayor Charles Wheeler and five other members of a six-man delegation who attended the board session to "express their desire to keep the team in Kansas City," Campbell said. Campbell said Wheeler told the NHL that he is "interested in taking whatever action is necessary to help to retain the club. · "He didn't say he and his staff would be successful, but he said he felt the people of Kansas City want hockey." Wheeler told reporters that he was pleased to receive the extension and expressed confidence that the franchise could be saved. The league had been expected to terminate the franchise after the Kansas City Kings of the National Basketball Association withdrew an offer to purchase the Scouts.

Roundup, the last small school to win any type of state title in head-to- head competition with Class AA and Class A teams, finished fourth in the Eastern Division playoffs last week, exactly where 1975 boys champion Missoula Sentinel wound up in the Western Division. The top four boys teams and the top three girls teams qualified from each division. However, Lynn Wall and Carol Ask of last year's championship Roundup team qualified among the lop individuals. Favored for the boys cro'^n this year in the two-day, 36-hole finals is perennial contender Laurel. The host team won the title in 1974 and looks to Jeff Pacot and Gary Burke to lead the Locomotives to glory again. Pacot shot a 151 in the divisional tournament, losing medalist honors to Billings West sophomore Rick Kloepfer by one stroke. But Burke h a d 1 5 2 a n d t h e f o u r - m a n Locomotive team easily outscored West 615-622 playing in Miles City. By comparison, other division team champions scored as follows: Flathead, 643; Butte 552, and Great Falls, 690. On its home course, Laurel presents a formidable obstacle. Kloepfer's 150 was the best 36-hole score posted during divisional tournaments. Flathead's Phil Schlatter posted a 151 in claiming medalist honors of his tournament, but the Eastern Division generally produced the lowest scores. Pat Bishop of Miles City had 154 and Mark Starkweather of West 155, while two players were tied at 156. Butte's Fred Zemijak won individual honors of the Southern Division with 155 strokes, while Steve Bracewell of Great Falls was the medalist in the North with 161. Billings Central, which nipped Laurel 370-377 in girls play at Miles City, looms as a favorite on the distaff links. Cathy Studer led the Central girls with a score of 170. seven strokes ahead of Laurel's Claudia Fadness. But Helena Capital's Linda Raunig is a definite threat in the race for girls individual honors. Raunig posted a 172 in her divisional. Korri Cook, who led Great Falls to a state championship in 1974. played 36 holes in 180 whacks to emerge as Northern Division medalist. Boston 2. Detroit 0 , Cleveland 3.
