Flathead coaches proud of teams' track effort By GEORGE CE1SE Inter Lake Sports Editor MISSOULA - Flathead High track teams finished seventh and ninth Saturday in the annual Class AA state track and field meet, but both coaches were proud of their squads. "You bet we're glad to get 13 points," said Dan Hodge of his seventh-place Braves. "We only figured to get points out of Hunter and we had two other placers." Hunter ran third in the 100 and second in the 220 for seven points. Bob Peters provided the big surprise with a second in the discus. The 440 relay squad of freshmen Justin Boylan and Jeff O'Brien, senior Jim Gibson and Hunter ran 44.4 for fourth. "We've got a lot of kids coming back, and we improved from I'i. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^£^£w:·^^^:·^:·:·:·; Braves golfers are third at state prep tournament LAUREL - Flathead High's boys golf team fashioned consistent 18-hoIe scores of 320 and 321 here over the weekend to tie for second place in the state high school golf tournament played at Laurel Country Club. The Braves total of 641 was nine behind the host Laurel team. Flathead tied Billings West for second but the Eastern Division school won the second place trophy on the first hole of a sudden death playoff. Maltbie scrambles to Memorial lead DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) -RogerMaltbie,occasionally tip-toeing gingerly in his bare feet from knee-deep rough, scrambled out of assorted problems and perils with a hard-won 70 that enabled him to establish a two stroke lead Saturday in the third round of the new, $200,000 Memorial Golf Tournament. Maltbie, a 25-year-old tour sophomore, survived the menacing monster that is Muirfield despite his intimate acquaintance with the woods and water, traps and trees that characterize the 7,072 yards of Ohio countryside that Jack Nicklaus designed and constructed into the Muirfield Village Golf Club course. The mustachioed Maltbie, a two-time winner as the 1975 rookie of the year, broke into a happy, high- stepping victory dance after his minor miracle of a par on the tough 18th hole put him through three rounds with a 212 total, four under par on what has proved to be the most difficult, most treacherous course the touring pros encounter all year. It wasn't easy. He had it four under par for the day at one point- then bogeyed three in a row. He lost three shots to Rod Funseth on the 15th hole. But he came right back with a birdie on the 17th then contrived a bare-toot par on the 18th. His tee shot got into knee-deep weeds in the creek. He shed shoes and socks, went after it on tiptoes, played his next down the fairway, chipped on and dropped a 10-foot putt for par that left him in command. Burfeindt shoots par, paces LPGA tournament BALTIMORE (AP) - Betty Burfeindt, the third- leading money winner of 1976 who has not scored a tournament victory in three years, shot a par 73 under miserable playing conditions and took the third-round lead Saturday in the Ladies Professional Golf Association Championship. The 30-year-old Miss Burfeindt said she was lucky with her par round because of the high winds and rain, which caused her to lose the ctub out of her hands on one swing. Going into Sunday's final round and a chance for the 18,000 first prize, she had a 54-hole total of 216, three- under-par and one stroke ahead of Judy Hankin, the leading money winner on the tour who has won three tournaments this season. "We played very well both days, but we choked a little during the playoff," reported coach Dick Schlatter. "It was a very good showing because not too many people expected us to finish this high." Consistency proved the Braves' main weapon. Hugh Paris, the team's lone senior, led scoring with 77-78155. Phil Schlatter was next with 81-78-159, followed by Cub Schlatter with a pair of 81s for 162, Mike Parker with 81-84-165 and Dave Breeder with 85-88-171. Breeder's score didn't count either day. Libby finished fourth in team play and Bob Olson of the Loggers was tied for fifth overall with a pair of 76s for 152. He also lost a playoff for fifth place medal. Butte Central's Jerry Lyons had rounds of 74-72 for 146 for individual medalist honors, followed by Butte's Fred Zemliak with 71-76-147 over the par-72 course. Steve Laux of Hamilton was third with 150, followed by Sid Meld of Dillon with 151 and Olson and Garry Burke of Laurel at 152. In K'rls play, Great Falls led with 359 followed by Billings Central with 367. Cathy Studer of Billings Central had 86-83-169 to edge Kerri Cook of Great Falls by one shot. The Flathead girls finished ninth out of 12 schools, after being in last place after 18 holes. Top player Barb Muller had an off tournament with scores of 106 and 99 but No. 2 player Vickie Herbold did well, shooting H3 and 104 for two of her better scores of the season. KERR IS BIGGER 'N BETTER Tune 1070 For A Fi*« Trial JACK 13th to seventh place in one year," Hodge said. Bravettes mentor Joe McKay said he "kind of anticipated" the team scoring only 8V4 points to finish ninth. "All of the point-winners were freshmen and sophomores, and you can't expect much more of young kids," Joe said. Debbie Hollklay was third in both the shot and discus and Lexie Miller tied for fourth in the high jump on Friday. Sharrie Shelton was fifth with a fast 11.1 time in the 80 hurdles Saturday. Miller just missed places in both hurdles Saturday, running 11.2 in the 80s and 15-flat in the llfls. ·;:; "We've got the nucleus of an ·:; excellent team coming back," g: McKay said. "We did very well % for a young team this year and 8 we'll be better next season." '$ t^xwwwKWftsassrSissssftJ: Sfafe record on fhe way Merna Jacobsen unloads a toss classic in Missoula.

Photo by George Geise THE SPOBTSMJltf Brings You. · -2SS-, V Dr. H.W ·- 1 - ..·· UHDE FOR REPRESENTATIVE '76 . .. This column sbooM have known better than to predict fair and sunny weekend weather for the area's outdoorsmen. There was just enoogn clouds and scattered showers to make the columnist a poor prognosticate* but not enough nasty weather to seriously interfere with outdoor activities. Those who were looking for an alibi to not mow the lawn or not weed the garden or not get out on the lake had enough (7) alibi to snooze in the easy chair, ff the weekends this summer present no more of a problem than last weekend there is no problem. Prediction for the long Memorial Day weekend-. Bright and sunny. And remember -- the proper time to go fishing is when you have a chance. The crowds of Canadians in campgrounds in the Valley ol Shining Mountains fast weekend was unbelievable, fn spite of this your columnist was fortunate in securing a spot in Wayfarer's State Recreation Area near the mouth of the Swan Hiver at Bigfork. Although the number of camping spots necessary to meet the demand is sadly lacking those spots available are well separated from each otijer and offer a degree of privacy not found in some campgrounds. It is really stretching the word to call this type o! activity camping. The modem trailers and pkkup campers available merely transfer the luxury of home living to spot in the outdoors. It is fun. this writer enjoys it, but it does seem to be stretching the meaning of the word camping. Even the modern tents and all of the paraphernalia that go with them furnish a bit of luxury. About the only real camping lelt is the backpacker. He (or she) carry it all on their back and this strictly limits the paraphernalia. However, here too there have been strides in lightweight waterproof material for tents that breathe and do-not bathe the camper in his own moisture, lightweight one burner stoves, down sleeping bags, and many others. Camping as it was known by Lewis and Clark is a thing o( the past. It was fortunate to find a camping spot the Canadians had not annexed. A large number of boats were anchored off the mouth ol ihe Swan River about even with the Wayfarer boat ramp and all were bait fishing while at anchor. Observation and questioning revealed that basically a few fish were being taken bu[ most were bulls under the 18 inch limit. Hwaslhesameoki story: yesterday... this morning... Bill Yeats of Whitefish, Bob Osier of Fortine, and Scott DeShazer of Eureka had laken several with the largest going 3!i pounds. Most were under the size limit. Bill bad seen bulls weighing 13 and rjne pounds taken Saturday morning trolling. Doc had been unable to go fishing until Saturday afternoon. There were gtowing reports of fishing here a week earlier. On Friday Yeats had fished Blanchard Lake near Whitefish and taken four medium size bass. The water had warmed sufficiently that the linesides werehittingonthesurface.Healsonotedhehad sighted four "big" northern pike but they saw him too and wouldn't bit. Northern pike are now well established in the Stil- Iwater River drainage. A landowner near Radnor tells of anglers taking pike weighing 15 and six pounds. Another boat toad of anglers from Eureka caught 22 bull trout with only a pair exceeding the II inch »iie limit and that was just barely. FG biologists are considering removing the size limit on boll troot (Dolly Varden) completely in the Klathead drainage neit year. Then some folks will be eating cigars instead of smoking cigars They reported doing belter the previous weekend with one bull gcing nine pounds. Three days earlieroneofthcEurekafolkshadgone down to the Tooacco River after work and landed three balls with the largesl going five pounds, one "good" rainbow, one smaller one, and a pair of cutthroat. Sext evening the same water yielded only one. Doc fished a couple of hours Saturday afternoon and about four boors tt» wit day. Three bulls were hooked temporarily. None TM rarara«n»«««M ton »· "»· « » H w e j Dr. H.W.C. N«wb«rry ^ -, was landed. Two were heavy fish a nd the third was r.ot so big. They just wouldn't slay hooked. Unfortunately this lure used did not have Muggs Huff's hooks. The lure was a U20 flathfish. Ken Lee landed a nine pound bull trotf but this writer knows none of the details. Flalhead River is still too high and muddy for plug fishing. Bait fishermen are doing a Jot of fishing but not too much catching. Ed McCulloch fished several hours Tuesday to no avail. Paul Atkinson also fished the river Tuesday morning but didn't have a bite in four hours of fishing..Over the weekend he did a bit better by taking a limit ol 12-14 inch cutthroat from Hungry Horse Reservoir in the Emery Bay area. The fish were laying about 100 yards oul from shore. Dale Mansfield and Mike Newberry of Libby fished McGregor Lake last weekend for six hours last without a strike. They were rigged for mackinaw, About 20 miles down Thompson River Cliff Porteous took a "few" brookJes but ifoOiing spectacular. The river is just now gel- ting within its banks and the water is still colored. It was too soupy tor flies. Cliff heard of an angeir in Fishtrafv-Lake who had. taken good messes of pansiters. There have been unconfirmed reports of bass in Lower Thompson I-ake becoming active and also of good trout catches from Bilterroot Creek below Bitterroot Lake. Outdoors With Doc has no details. Lee Heinrickson look a few kokanee from Bitterroot Lake but they were very stow. His daughter landed a three and a half pound cutthroat which should qualify her for Fisherman of the Week. Marshall Smith tried Bitterroot Lake last weekend to no avail. The water temperature was a chilly 42 degrees. Jerry Belstad and partners fished Lonepine (Dry Forks] Reservoir recently and took 22 pike in the two to three pound class. Weeds are now so thick and the water has gone down a bit making fishing difficult. The fish are still there. The Whitefish Lake macks are hitting for Dallas Eklund who landed six in a three hour stint last week. Xone were over 20 pounds. He kepi a pair in the 12 pound class to smoke. Smoking the extra grease out of these big fish is a real problem. Montana Fish and Game Department Region One Fisherie Management has been "experimenting" with the fishtrie (or lack of it) in Little Bilterroot lake for the past dozen years or so. They have succeeded in establishing a population of smallish kokanee. The iroul fisherie is a sad. sad story. Nothing tried s«ms to have worked. Oae fact is well known to anglers using the lake and familiar with it; there has not been a decent trout fisherie in Little Bitlerrool Lake since FG stooped planting calchable size rainbow trout in the early sixties Nothing else has worked. Perhaps some day they will do a bit rrvore experimenting with a previously known winner. Almost anyone else wo'-ild have dor.e it long ago Several years ago a petition was circulated in the area which collected a goodly r.umber of signatures requesting a study be made of ihis defunct fisherie and mearjres taken lo improve it The petition was sent to Helena F4-G by Don Sc^ir-aidi. K was acknowledged and he rKeived a letter telling him he would be kept informed. That was the lasi he heard. Outdoors with Doc asked Helen Bergan how she did on her iast outing to Bilterrooi Lake. "I think I had two bites but I couldn't tell for sure I got caught on the bottom a J«." she replied. Doc has had the san-.e fuck the past dozen years except for Die kokanee To IracJe kokanee for trout (especially when the kokane* are plentiful in other area Lakes) is a toifhty poor deal. Keep your line lighl. your hooks sharp, and %isit The Sportsman once a week. You'll be glad you did. * o« Trx :
