D4 SUNDAY. OCTOBER 6, 1996 SPORTS THE SALINA JOURNAL V COLLEGE CROSS COUNTRY Cloud County wins KW meet Bradshaw, Maritim win individual as T-Birds defend team titles By LARRY MORITZ The Salina Journal Their cross country backgrounds vary greatly, but Sarah Bradshaw and Jerry Maritim both produced similar results at Saturday's Kansas Wesleyan Invitational. The Cloud County team members swept the individual titles and helped the Thunderbirds take both the men's and women's team championships for the second straight year. Maritim, winner of the National Junior College Division II cross country title in 1995, repeated as individual champion at the Wesleyan meet. His time of 25:04 over the five-mile course was nearly two-and-a-half minutes better than his nearest competitor. He also cut 52 seconds off his winning time from a year ago. "My goal was to break the 25- minute barrier but I didn't," Maritim said. "But that's OK." Maritim led by 21 seconds after the first mile and had a 1:35 cushion at the three-mile mark. Tabor's Jeremy Jost finished second with a time of 27:32, followed by Highland's David Nuss (27:44) and Cloud County's Eric Meyer (28:06). Bradshaw also led for most of her race, but her margin of victory was only nine seconds over Bethany's Jamey Thomas. "This course is pretty flat except for one hill," Bradshaw said of the 3.1-mile run through Bill Burke and Indian Rock parks. "I went out fast at the beginning and kept going. I felt good today and kept pushing myself. The first-place finish was the first of Bradshaw's college career. The freshman from McPherson ran a 20:08, Thomas came in at 20:17 and Cloud County's Janet McAsey (20:24) and Melody Underwood (21:04) finished third and fourth, respectively. Underwood is running cross country for the first time after competing in track at White Rock High School. "It was a great day all around," Cloud County coach Harry Kitchener said. "We've got a young group of kids and we've got a lot of freshmen from Kansas on the girls team that are really starting to come around." Wesleyan had fifth-place finishes in both the men's and women's races. The Coyotes Rebekah Erickson was her team's top finisher and helped the Wesleyan women to a second-place finish in the team race. Cloud County won with 30 points, followed by the host team BRIEFLY Wesleyan soccer team suffers its first loss NORTH NEWTON — Kansas Wesleyan first-year men's soccer program suffered its first loss of the season Saturday, falling to Bethel 4-1. Wesleyan had opened its inaugural season with six victories. Bethel led 2-1 at halftime and tacked on two more goals in the second half. Mike Dibbini scored Wesleyan's lone goal at the 42-minutes mark on an assist from Mark Chaney. "This has put everything back into perspective," Wesleyan coach Brian Berner said. "They were beating us to the ball. We lost in our failure to prepare. I didn't get the team ready to play. "Halloween will roll around and we will be prepared to play them again. Thursday starts everything. We play for real (in the Kansas Conference) when we go to McPherson." Wesleyan outshot Bethel 8-6. Bethel improves to 6-3. Bethel hammered the Wesleyan women 11-0. Bethel outshot Wesleyan 32-2. Salina Catbackers to meet Wednesday The Salina Area Catbackers will meet at noon Wednesday at Kansas State-Salina. Guest speakers will be KSAL sports director Bruce Steinbrock and K-State associate athletic director Matt McMillen. Central, South compete at McPherson meet McPHERSON — Salina Central placed sixth and Salina South eighth at Saturday's 13-team McPherson Invitational tennis tournament. Host McPherson topped the field with 87 points, followed by runner- up Garden City (82) and Great Bend (80). In a tune-up for the Class 5A regional meet (all the regional teams with the exception of Hays were on hand) Central finished with 60 points. The Mustangs' top finish was the third-place doubles showing by Sydney Moshier and Ashley Wilson. After losing in the semifinals, the tandem rebounded with an 8-2 victory in the consolation finals. In singles, Central's Laura Seaton and Amanda Garlow placed 12th and 22nd, respectively. "We got the competition we wanted to see where we stood going into regionals," Central coach Jim LoVullo said. "We just need to be more consistent. A lot of points were on our racket, but we didn't convert. "We're going to have to step it up if we expect to compete better at regional." Salina South coach Cindy Meek was encouraged by the performance of her Cougars, who generated 51 points.

Following a first-round loss, Feyerherm and Chace closed strong, winning their next three matches to place 17th. "Julie's competition was tremendous," Meek said. "Mason from McPherson had beaten her easily earlier this season and Julie lost to her again this time, but it went to a tie-breaker. Wins are wonderful, but losses also can show improvement. "Anna and Mandi had not really done well as a doubles team prior to today, but they were 3-1.1 was really pleased with those two." Both Central and South now turn their attention toward Tuesday's 1-70 League meet at Topeka's Felker Park. Play begins at 10 a.m. Wesleyan spikers topple McPherson McPHERSON — Kansas Wesleyan rebounded from its loss to Southwestern Thursday by defeating McPherson in a Kansas Conference volleyball match Saturday afternoon. The Coyotes won 15-9,15-6 and 15-7 to improve to 5-8 overall and 4- 2intheKCAC. "We played a lot better than we did on Thursday," Wesleyan coach Tom Hughes said. "There's still things we have to work on, but the kids came out and did a nice job. We were able to spread things around and able to get some kids T BOXING some playing time today." Holly Morris played a key role in Wesleyan's victory. The junior outside hitter finished with 10 kills and also was a factor serving with eight aces. Other top contributors Saturday included Marsha Emmot (three aces, 20 kills), Tabetha Gillespie (seven kills, three solo blocks and seven block assists) and setter Lisa Tripp (35 assists). Wesleyan now gears for a big week in the conference, playing host to unbeaten KCAC leader Friends on Tuesday and visiting Bethany on Thursday. St. Louis standout chooses St. Louis U. ST. LOUIS — Highly recruited point guard Larry Hughes will apparently stay in his hometown to play college basketball. Hughes, who is 6-foot-6, announced Friday that he will attend Saint Louis University and play for the Billikens. The announcement came at a pep rally in the gymnasium of Christian Brothers High School, where Hughes averaged 23.8 points, 5.7 assists and 5.5 steals last season. Hughes said he chose St. Louis over Kansas, Michigan and Syracuse, "because I felt a lot more comfortable there. I know all the players, the coaches, and it's the best situation for me." From Staff Reports Jones willing to accept Bradley's bold challenge IBF super middleweight champ Jones defends title with victory Friday By The Associated Press NEW YORK — Lonnie Bradley appears ready to go where Roy Jones says other fighters fear to tread. Bradley, the WBO middleweight champion, attended the postfight news conference after Jones defended the IBF super middleweight title with a second-round knockout of Bryant Brannon on Friday night. Jones issued a challenge to Bradley, who said, "I'm willing to go against him." "He's a brave young man," said Jones, who boosted his record to 33-0 with his 29th knockout against the overmatched Brannon, who went into the bout with a 16-0 record, with 10 knockouts, and the IBF's No. 1 ranking. The 27-year-old Jones is considered by many people to be the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world, but he is cursed by the lack of quality opponents. Another top fighter, Ike Quartey of Ghana, retained the WBA welterweight title with a decision over Oba Carr in the first half of the HBO-televised doubleheader in The Theater at Madison Square Garden. "Unfortunately, I've never faced adversity," said Jones, who contends that he ig not ducking opponents who might provide a test. Lou DiBella, vice president of Time Warner Sports, operator of HBO, said offers to fight Jones were rejected by super middleweight champions Frank Liles (WBA), Vincenzo Nardiello (WBC) and Steve Collins (WBO). It appeared that IBF middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins would take a rematch with Jones, but Jones said Friday night that Hopkins "turned it down, not enough money." Jones outpointed Hopkins for the vacant IBF middleweight title in 1993, defended it once and then moved up to super middleweight. Jones knocked Brannon down^n the first round and then twice more in the second. "I had him the first round, but my Momma didn't come in (from Pensacola, Fla.) to see one round," Jones said. Jones, however, asked referee Ron Lipton to stop the fight after the first knockdown in the second round. The final knockdown came seconds later, and Lipton didn't even bother to count. Quartey, 33-0 with 29 knockouts, was in charge of his match against the top-ranked Carr from the outset by judge Gonzalo Rivera of Venezuela scored it 112-112.

"I'd have to check to see how long it's been since the girls finished second at a meet. "Some of them were kind of concerned about their times not being as fast as they were last week, but this is a much slower course. I think they are starting to realize that it's position more than time that counts." The Wesleyan men had a pair of top 10 finishes. Chris Sawyer was fifth in 28:24, while teammate Sean Ellett was seventh in 28:30. Brad Druse had a 12th-place finish for the Coyotes, while Trisha Theer was llth and Jessica Wheeler 12th for the Wesleyan women. "The men ran a lot better today, too," Pickens said. "Chris had a good race, Sean ran where he should be running and Brad also did real well." GARY SWARTZENDRFBER For State Representative District 69 Pol. Adv.
