Hays girls streak past Salina South ByTIMHOSTETTER Sports Writer HAYS — Despite a 24-point, 13- rebound performance from Chris Armour, Salina South's girls again fell victim to poor shooting and too many turnovers Tuesday night in a 69-44 loss to Hays. Armour, a 5-9 junior, hit 8 of 14 field goals and 8 of 9 from the free throw line in her game-high performance. "We've been waiting for Chris to break out and start playing like she's capable of doing," said Salina South head coach Dave Butler. "That was by far her best game of the year. She shot well from the outside tonight." Hays High junior Kim Engel was just as rough on the Cougars, canning 8 of 12 shots in a 22-point night. Team shooting percentages weren't alike, however. Hays sizzled from the field all night, hitting 26 of 43 fielders for 60 percent. South hit just 15 of 45 shots for 33 percent. South's 37 turnovers were just as punishing as its poor shooting. The winless Cougars turned the ball over 20 times in the first half and fell behind, 32-16. South then self-destructed in the first five minutes of the second half, scoring just two points (from the free throw line) and committing nine turnovers. "The turnovers are just stupid," Butler said. "But we are young. We've been finding the people who can play for us. I think we're going to get better. We have to do a better job of getting back on defense, though." The Indians took full advantage of South's mistakes, building a 44-18 lead. Hays hit 10 of 13 from the field in the period to take a 60-22 lead into the fourth quarter. Brenda Bruggeman, the Indians' inside threat, scored 12 points despite foul trouble most of the game.

Viking girls beat Southeast GYPSUM — Smoky Valley gained control in the second quarter and went on to record a 38-23 victory over Southeast of Saline in an NCAA girls' basketball game Tuesday night. Southeast was ahead 8-4 two minutes into the second period, but over the next six minutes Smoky Valley ran off 11 unanswered points to take a 15-8 halftlme lead. Southeast narrowed the score to 1814 with 1:52 remaining in the third period, but the quarter ended with the Vikings on top, 20-14. Southeast scored the first basket of the second half to cut the lead to four points, but the Trojans could get no closer. Diane Ahlstedt scored 9 points to lead Smoky Valley, which evened its NCAA record at 1-1. The Vikings are 4-2 overall. Laura Riblett paced Southeast, 0-2 and 3-3, with 5 points.

(AP) — Forward Muhammad Akbar, Oklahoma State University's leading scorer through 11 games of the basketball season, has been declared academically ineligible and has left school, officials said Tuesday. Akbar, a 6-6 junior college transfer from Oklahoma City, did not pass enough hours in the fall semester, said sports information director Steve Buzzard. Buzzard said he did not know what Akbar's plans were, but said Akbar had left Oklahoma State and Stillwater. Coach Paul Hansen said the registrar told him Akbar, who was averaging 17.3 points per game and 7.6 rebounds, would not be eligible for the second semester. Clark gives SHHS last-second win By STEPHEN WHITE Sports Writer BELOIT — Terri Clark polished off the best game of her career in fitting fashion Tuesday night at Beloit as the 54 sophomore took a full-court pass, spun and tossed in the game-winning shot as Sacred Heart trimmed Beloit, 45-43, in NCAA girls'basketball. Clark sank seven of nine shots from the floor and finished with 20 points as the Knights won their second straight game. The victory left Sacred Heart 2-1 in the North Central Activities Association and 2-4 overall. Beloit, which dipped to 1-3 overall and 1-1 in the NCAA, countered with a 19-point, 12-rebound effort from Rhonda Dietz. The 5-6 Trojan senior scored 16 of her points in the second half, but with the game on the line the Trojans couldn't work to ball inside to her in the final 1:12, as Beloit played for the final shot. Senior guard Gretchen Klenda wound up taking that shot, driving the right side of the lane. But Sacred Heart's Terry Cook rejected it with four seconds remaining. It was Cook's sixth blocked shot of the contest. Sacred Heart's other pivot player, Renee Bellerive, corraled the rebound and whipped it the length of the floor, where Clark caught it 15 feet from the basket. "I don't think it was a lucky shot," said Sacred Heart coach John Laird. "It's not like she threw it over her shoulder. She turned and faced the basket and shot it." It was a dramatically appropriate conclusion to a see-saw contest in which the lead switched hands throughout the final three quarters. Cook added 12 points to her six blocks, and senior guard Theresa Vance contributed four steals and eight points. SACRED HEART (45) Clark 7-96-1420, Cook 6-100-3 12, Martin 0-5 0-0 0. Vance 3-6 2-5 8.

The Salina Journal Wednesday, January 8,1986 Page 20 Wesleyan cagers face St. Mary of the Plains Central, South swimmers notch victories Salina Central and Salina South each posted easy dual victories over Wichita South Tuesday afternoon in high school swimming action at the Salina South pool. Central had five individual champions in a 104-66 victory which improved the Mustangs to 5-0 in dual meets this season. South won six individual events to win by a 115-54 score. South is 4-1 in dual competition. Central's five winners were Dave Evans in the 200-freestyle, Andy Bedinger in the 200-I.M., Shawn Van Meter in the 100-fly, Kevin Burt in the 500-freestyle and Chad Wolf in the 100-backstroke. Van Meter also swam on the winning 200-medley relay team and Bedinger and Evans were members of the victorious 400- freestyle relay team. The Mustangs also received a freshman-record performance from Scott Davidson. Davidson placed second in the 100-freestyle with a frosh school record of 55.48 seconds. Will Robertson of South was the lone two-time winner in individual events as the Cougar senior won the 50-freestyle and 500-freestyle. Robertson's time of 23.81 in the 50-free also qualified him for the state meet next month in Lawrence. Other winners for South were Tim Stocker in the 200-freestyle, Sean Mead in the 200-I.M., Tony Hoffman in the one-meter diving, Kenny Esson in the 100-fly and Joel Grimmett in the 100-backstroke. Grimmett and Esson were also members of the winning 200-medley relay team and Mead, Stocker and Robertson were part of the first- place 400-f reestyle relay team. Results of Tuesday's meet are in the Scoreboard, Page 19. Kansas Wesleyan basketball teams resume their chase for Kansas Conference titles tonight. St. Mary of the Plains will be the opposition at Muir Gymnasium as the Coyote teams end a 24-day layoff. The women's game will tip off at 6 p.m. with the men's contest scheduled to start at 8 p.m. Tonight's games begin a busy stretch for the Wesleyan teams, who will play seven games apiece during the next two weeks. And bpth KW teams will attempt to keep alive the winning formula they established the first two months of the season when they combined to win 12 of 13 outings. Wesleyan's men have a 3-0 record in the KCAC — second only to Friends' 4-0 mark entering Tuesday's contest with Tabor. The Coyotes, 6-1 overall, have posted easy wins over Southwestern, McPherson and Tabor in their first three KCAC outings. Balance has been KW's watchword as only swingmen David Frederick (14.3) and Gus Deering (12.0) have double-figure scoring averages. But seven other Coyotes are averaging McPherson coach resigns McPHERSON (AP) — Steve Phipps, who struggled to a 2-16 record in two seasons as head football coach, has resigned the post at McPherson College. Phipps, 41, had back-to-back 1-8 seasons at the Kansas Conference school after leaving private business to coach the Bulldogs. 4.5 points or better. That depth should prove beneficial to KW during the next two weeks. "It's not going to bother us," said KW coach Jerry Jones of the Coyotes' busy two-week stretch. "In fact, most of the guys like it because they know they're gonna get to play more." Wesleyan will have the services tonight of sophomore forward Jeff Tillman, who started the first three games this season before being sidelined by an ankle injury. Tillman has "looked great" in practice, Jones said, but he will not start. Neither will Deering, a two-year starter who has been slowed by illness since the holidays. Jones said the Coyotes have had excellent practices since their mini- vacation. "We've had better practices than ever before," the KW coach said. "They're anticipating and understanding what we're doing so well." KW's women, off to their best start in school history with a 6-0 record, will likely face their stiffest test of the season tonight against St. Mary. The Saints, the defending NAIA District 10 champs, bring a 3-1 conference record and 7-3 overall mark into tonight's game.
