He was a graduate assistant for two years, offensive line coach for five years ...and also running game coordinator last season. ; "Dana has moved steadily through the Kansas State program ""and has been a tremendous asset at jpvery level," Snyder said. "His tal- ^Jit and loyalty make him very deserving of the promotion." Kramer, a former All-America lineman at Nebraska, spent the last 12 seasons at Emporia State. He replaces Rod Humenik, who resigned last week for a job with Winnipeg of the Canadian Football League.

Cline won a three-way playoff for sixth, topping McPherson's Jeff Pankewich and Great Bend's Rollie Anderson with a par on the first hole. "Matt has come a long way with his game and I'm proud of him," said Central coach Chris Crank. "He's accomplished a lot and not jnst with his golf game. He's matured and become a great leader and great example." Central finished fifth in the team race with a 355 total, while Salina South was eighth with 379. Mustang sophomore Tony Alt followed Cline with an 86, while South's top score came from junior Greg Ewy with a 92. Royals place Gordon ; on disabled list ; KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals put right; handed pitcher Tom Gordon on I the 15-day disabled list Monday ; because of surgery to remove | wisdom teeth. The move was retroactive to May 8, four days before Gordon had the surgery to remove four Ir'teeth. £;|; Gordon, 27, is 1-1 with a 7.43 T ERA in three starts. \ The move leaves the Royals • with 11 pitchers on their 25-man '. roster. i Gordon joins outfielders Phil ; Hiatt and Chris James on the dis- • abled list. The Royals also reached their ! roster limit of 25 when they tossed ! three players completely out of the ' organization. Outfielder Felix Jose • was released and infielders Keith ! Miller and Russ McGinnis were ; placed on unconditional release • waivers. , ; Jose was just 4-for-30 with no ' homers and one RBI. Miller was 5• for-15 and McGinnis was O-for-5. • In another move Monday, the ' Royals accepted the return of 1 left-hander Chris Eddy from the '-- Oakland Athletics. Eddy, 25, was taken by the A's in the minor- league draft in December. The Athletics were required to return him to the Royals because he was not kept in the majors for one year after being acquired. Eddy had no record and a 7.36 ERA in six appearances with Oakland. He was to be assigned to the Royals' Triple-A club in Omaha, Neb. Two SHHS golfers qualify for state meet HALSTEAD — Sacred Heart missed qualifying its golf team to next week's Class 2-1A State Tournament by one stroke Monday. But the Knights did qualify two individuals from the Burrton Regional: freshmen Cain Frazier and Ryan Prickett. Frazier took third, shooting an 81 on the Wedgewood Golf Course. Prickett shot an 87, losing a playoff for the 10th medal but still qualifying for state. Sacred Heart and Quivira Heights tied for third place in the team standings with 357 scores, but Quivira Heights won the fifth-man tiebreaker by one shot. "Our fifth man (Chris Ash) usually shoots around 88, but he shot a 100 today," said Sacred Heart coach Tim Orth. "If he had shot around his average, our team would have qualified. But I thought we played well overall," Orth said. "We're awful young." Kevin Evel shot a 92 and Chris Mergen a 97 to round out Sacred Heart's team. The Knights' sixth man, Ben Breault, fired a 108. Ness City won the meet with a 346, one shot better than runner-up Kinsley. Remington's Travis Roth took individual honors with a 76. Lincoln stays alive in 3-2-1A regional LINCOLN — Lincoln ended Ell- Saline's baseball season with a 53 victory in the Sacred Heart Class 3-2-1A regional. The victory moved Lincoln (87) into the semifinal round against Southeast of Saline on Wednesday at 3 p.m. at Salina's Dean Evans Stadium. Ell-Saline ended its first year of baseball at 0-9. Lincoln pulled away from Ell- Saline with two runs in the sixth inning. Jay Horting tripled leading off the inning. Ryan Obermueller walked and Kourtney Kobbeman singled home Horting. Josh Biggs then singled home Obermueller. Belleville girls edge SE-Saline in NCAA meet MINNEAPOLIS — Belleville's girls edged Southeast of Saline by two points for the North Central Activities Association track and field title Monday night. Southeast led by two points heading into the final event — the 1,600- meter relay — but Belleville earned eight points with a first- place finish, while Southeast got four points for third. The Trojans finished first in five events as Jami Davis and Janelle Lund each won twice. Davis claimed the 100-meter hurdles (16.05 seconds) and 300 hurdles (48.0), while Lund finished first in the 1,600-meter run (5:56.74) and 3,200 run (13:26.93. Becky Keeler of Southeast also won the high jump with a leap of 5-6. In the boys division, Beloit rolled to the team title with 166 points — 65 more than second-place Belleville. Robbie Gaut of Southeast won both hurdle races — 14.64 seconds in the 110 and 40.27 in the 300. Jay Heidrick of Beloit went 23- OVz in the long jump — the best mark on the area honor roll this season — and Travis Litton of the Trojans tied his area-best mark in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.92. Nebraska long jumper proves comeback AMES, Iowa — There should no longer be any doubts. Nebraska long jumper Robert Thomas is back. Thomas, a three-time conference champion who didn't .compete last season, won the Big Eight outdoor long jump title Monday with a leap of 27 feet, VA inches — the second- best effort by a collegian this season. It also bettered the Big Eight record of 26-6 Vz set by Kansas State's Kenny Harrison in 1986, but the jump was wind aided so Harrison's mark still stands. That didn't bother Thomas, whose previous best this year was 25-8 V4. "Some people coming into the meet wondered if I still had it because I took a year off," said Thomas, who has won two Big Eight indoor titles in the long jump and one in the triple jump. "I guess I answered that." Thomas' effort helped Nebraska to second place in the first-day team standings behind Iowa State. ISU compiled 54 points through five events. Nebraska, the pre-meet favorite, had 32 points and Kansas State was next with 28. The meet concludes today. • From Staff and Wir* Reports Baseball 0000 Major Boston New York Toronto Detroit Baltimore Cleveland Milwaukee Kansas City Chicago Minnesota California Seattle Oakland Texas league standings By The Associated Prats AMERICAN LEAGUE East Division W L Pet GB L10 Streak 11 5 .688 — z-7-3 Won 2 10 7 .588 1V4 z-5-5 Lost Z 9 9 .500 3 4-6 Lost 1 7 10 .412 4<A z-5-5 Won 1 6 10 .375 5 4-6 Lost 1 Central Division W L Pet GB L10 Streak 11 5 .688 — 7-3 Won 1 10 7 .588 1% 4-6 Lost Z 7 9 .438 4 z-4-6 Lost 1 6 10 .375 5 5-5 Won 1 5 12 .294 6V4 2-8 Lost 2 West Division W L Pet GB L10 Streak 10 7 .588 — 6-4 Won 1 9 7 .563 </i z-4-6 Lost 1 9 9 .500 1V4 6-4 Won 2 8 11 .421 3 z-5-5 Won 1 Home Awsy 7-2 4-3 5- 3 6- 5 1- 5 4- 5 5- 4 3- 4 6- 5 Z- 5 Home Away 5- 1 5- 5 3- 4 4- 3 4- 6 6- 4 5- 2 4- 5 2- 7 1- 6 Philadelphia Montreal Atlanta New York Florida Chicago Houston St. Louis Cincinnati Pittsburgh Colorado Los Angeles San Francisco San Olego W L 13 5 11 8 9 9 7 11 5 13 NATIONAL LEAGUE East Division Pet GB L10 .722 .579 .500 .389 .278 — z-8-2 2% 6-4 4 3-7 6 z-4-6 8 z-3-7 W 11 9 9 8 Central Division Pet GB L10 4 12 W L 12 6 9 8 10 9 7 11 .647 .529 .500 .471 .250 — z-7-3 2 z-5-5 2'/i 5-5 3 7-3 6% 2-8 West Division Pet GB L10 .667 — 5-5 .529 Z'/2 z-6-4 .526 2% z-5-5 .389 5 3-7 Streak Lost 1 Lost 1 Won 1 Won 1 Won 1 Streak Won 1 Lost 3 Won 2 Won 1 Lost 2 Streak Lost 1 Lost 2 Lost 1 Won 1 Home Away 5-5 5-2 5-2 4-5 4-3 5-6 4-7 4-4 Home Away 3- 2 10- 3 4-3 7-5 4-6 5-3 5-5 2-6 2-9 3-4 Home Away 4-4 7-2 1-5 8-3 6-6 3-3 3-5 5-4 1-7 3-5 Home Away 8-3 4-3 2-4 7-4 6-4 4-5 6-6 1-5 z-denotes first game was a win AMERICAN LEAGUE Sunday's Games BoslonS, New York 2 Cleveland 3, Baltimore 1 Oakland 12, Minnesota 3 Toronto 8, Milwaukee 3 California 8, Kansas City 1 Detroit 8, Texas 3 Chicago 10, Seattle 2 Monday's Games Texas 12, Toronto 4 California at Minnesota, (n) Tuesday's Games Detroit (Bergman 1-3) at Baltimore (McDonald 0-0), 6:35 p.m. Cleveland (Nagy 1-0) at New York (Key 1-1), 6:35 p.m. Toronto (Leiter 1-1) at Texas (Rogers 22), 7:05 p.m. Seattle (Fleming 1-2) at Kansas City (Haney 0-0), 7:05 p.m. California (Bielecki 0-0) at Minnesota (Robertson 0-0), 7:05 p.m. Oakland (Ontlveros 2-1) at Chicago (Bere 0-1 ),7:05 p.m. Boston (Hanson 2-0) at Milwaukee (Scanlan 1-0), 7:05 p.m. NATIONAL LEAGUE Sunday's Games Cincinnati 5, Atlanta 3,10 Innings San Diego 9, Chicago 7 Philadelphia 5, Houston 2 St. Louis 6, Los Angeles 5,11 innings San Francisco 2, Pittsburgh 1,10 Innings Colorado 6, Florida 3 Montreal 3, New York 2,13 innings Monday's Games Chicago 6, San Francisco 1 Florida 9, Philadelphia 1 Atlanta 4, Colorado 0 New York 5, Montreal 3 Pittsburgh at Los Angeles, (n) St. Louis at San Diego, (n) Tuesday's Games Chicago (Navarre 3-0) at San Francisco (Mulholland 2-2), 2:35 p.m. Philadelphia (Mlmbs 1-1) at Florida (Weathers 1-0), 6:05 p.m. Cincinnati (Jarvls 1-0) at Montreal (Perez 1-0), 6:35 p.m. Colorado (Acevedo 1-t) at Atlanta (Smoltz 1-2), 7:40 p.m. New York (Jones 2-1) at Houston (Reynolds 1-1), 8:05 p.m. Pittsburgh (Neagle 1-1) at Los Angeles (Valdes 0-0), 9:05 p.m. St. Louis (Urbanl 1-1) at San Diego (Benes 0-3), 9:05 p.m. American League RANGERS 12, BLUE JAYS 4 TORONTO TEXAS abrhbl abrhbl White cf 5021 Nixon cf 6321 Cedeno ss 5 2 3 0 Frye 2b 4120 Molltordh 3021 WCIarklb 3200 Dlgado dh 1000 Tttlelon dh 4234 Carterll 3000 Palmer3b 3111 Mldndolf 1000 McLmrlf 3122 Olerudtb 4111 Greerrf 4010 RAImr2b 4011 Vallec 4110 Green rf 4000 Gil ss 5121 Sprgue 3b 4130 Knorrc 4000 Totals 384124 Totals 3612149 Toronto 100 002 001— 4 Texas 331 122 OOx—12 E—Knorr (2).

When you chip shots you don't have to use your feet as much." On one of the first warm days of the spring sports season, Krehbiel earned the regional's top seed, affording him a first-round bye. He then downed South's Matt Toews in the quarterfinals, 6-0, 6-0, and defeated Newcomer in the semis, 6-1, 6-3. Krehbiel's biggest concern was racquet repairs. By the time he completed the title match, he was using his fourth racquet of the day. "That's getting to be kind of typical," Krehbiel said. "I'm going to have to buy a couple more because I'm breaking so many strings it's starting to be a joke." Huseman and Sexton were equally impressive in running their record to 29-1 this season. The Central doubles partners lost only five games in their three matches. Earning a first-round bye as the top seed, Huseman-Sexton dropped Hays High's Tanne Graver and Chris Hauck in the quarterfinals, 6-2, 6-0; blanked Great Bend's Aaron Cross and Terry Delp in the semis, 6-0, 6-0; then rolled past No. 2 seed Ian Mamminga and Matt Balzer of Buhler in the championship, 6-1, 62. "We were really impressive today," Huseman said. "There were times this year when we were winning our matches but we weren't on top of our game. "If we play as well as we did today, I think we'll be ready to compete for a state championship. Earlier in the year I wouldn't have said that." Only the top four regional finishers in singles and doubles qualify for state, so Newcomer was forced to place higher than the No. 5 seed he was awarded to keep his final season alive. He did just that by defeating Great Bend's Bobby Rowe in the opener, 6-4, 6-2; then downing No. 4 seed Bobby Lewis of Buhler in the quarterfinals, 6-4, 6-1. "I came in hoping to get a good seed and win some matches against guys I haven't beaten this year," Newcomer said. "When I won those first two matches, it meant that I had at least qualified for state. But then I started to wear down because it was a long day." After losing to Krehbiel in the semifinals, Newcomer dropped a 6-1, 6-1 decision to No. 3 seed Adam Vincent of McPherson in the third-place match. Newcomer will now face one of the top seeds at the 5A state meet next Monday in Salina. "I know it will be tough since I'll be playing one of the first-seeded players," Newcomer said. "But I have no idea who it will be or what to expect from them, and I feel like I'm at my best when I relax a little bit. And I know I'll be fresh after a week of practice." In addition to qualifying two singles players, McPherson will send doubles partners Chris Johnson and Phil Penner to state after they placed third Monday. "Winning the team title was really nice because everybody contributed today," McPherson coach Doug Gayer said. "Even our other doubles team that didn't qualify for state won a match over Central's No. 2 doubles team, and that's a one-point difference in the standings right there." »>FROM PAGE B1 Big 12 tries to sort out revenue sharing plan from athletic directors and faculty representatives on a variety of transition issues, including the most sensitive and important — revenue sharing. A broad plan for distributing the estimated $40 million that is expected to flow into the Big 12 from all sources has won general and sometimes reluctant majority approval. But it includes a football playoff. And if the presidents do not get a revenue-sharing plan on their desk in time for their long-anticipated June meeting, the new league's entire timetable could fly off track. The Big 12 — the Big Eight plus Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M and Baylor of the Southwest Conference — starts competition in August 1996. It has already signed football television contracts worth more than $100 million. "There are some people here who feel you can't have a revenue distribution plan without a playoff game," said Hatchell, who figures he needs at least six weeks to collect all the information. "We'll just have to get something done. Something's got to go to the presidents." Football coaches voted unanimously in their meeting Sunday to oppose a North-South divisional playoff. They believe that a playoff could knock a team but of a major bowl or a national championship game and that as much or more money could be raised getting a second team into the major bowls every year. Coaches met with athletic directors for about two hours Monday and they agreed they need more facts. Among the schools, Nebraska, the current national champion, seemed the most adamant playoff opponent. With Oklahoma's opposition appearing to weaken, Nebraska might be alone in its opposition. "I don't think anything was resolved," Nebraska coach Tom Osborne said of Monday's meeting. "We discussed it, and everybody agreed we would look at all the options. We're listening, and they're listening." Estimates floating around the Big 12 leading up to these five-day meetings said a playoff could net about $6 million, or $500,000 to $550,000 per school. But playoff opponents were told Monday the $500,000 figure was just the bare minimum, that the real numbers could go much higher. "I do know there's more money out there than what we did with the preliminary estimates," said Hatchell, who until July 1 is still commissioner of a dissolving Southwest Conference that has meetings of its own next week. "We were very conservative on ticket prices for 75,000 people. We didn't put any premiums on to get to $6 million," Hatchell said. Still to be pursued in earnest are television commitments and title sponsors. How much, for example, would General Motors shell out to see it called the Chevrolet Big 12 Championship? "There are several points that are of grave concern to athletic directors and football coaches alike," Missouri athletic director Joe Castiglione said. "Before we make any sort of formal proposal up through our structure we want to make sure we're diligent in researching the issue all the way through. "We don't want the presidents to kick it back to us and say we didn't do our homework." "The question is what are the real numbers," Hatchell said. "The coaches have legitimate concerns. So now you get into the balancing act. What are we really talking about here for the championship game? That was the period at the end of the sentence today." I
