Geraghty resigns at Lakeview High Lakeview High School Board of Education Friday night accepted the resignation of boys basketball coach Dennis P. Geraghty. Geraghty has been at the rural Platte County school for four years, after two years at Preston, la., and one year as junior varsity coach at North Dakota State. His career coaching record is 71-53 with his best year at Lakeview coming in his first season, 16-6, the best mark in the school's history. DENNIS GERAGHTY Geraghty credited his first year success to "super in- dividual talent - Jim PUlen, Steve Goering, Rick Thomas, Darrel Rickert. We had the talent but ran out of people like that after that season." His final two campaigns at Lakeview cut into what would have been an excellent career record. His Vikings finished 4- 14 in 19776 and 2-17 this year. "I can't say this year was disappointing, we played with four underclassmen," he commented today. "They have the foundation for next year with the top four scorers back." Geraghty said he has been blessed with two "great" assistant coaches during his tenure at Lakeview. Ron Greenwall aided him his first two years with Columbus High graduate Bob Hopp taking over the final two years. Hopp worked with Geraghty all four years, the first as a graduate assistant and the second with the fresh- men. Geraghty said he doesn't ' have any definite plans but does hope to get back to Iowa where he started his coaching career and where he attended college. He is a 1969 graduate of St. Ambrose College. He does plan to stay in coaching. Geraghty's wife Julie is a girls' coach at Lakeview. Mondoy. March 21, 1977 UN STADIUM Columbus, Nebraska Columbus Telegram--7 8,000 new seats planned LINCOLN." Neb. The University of Nebraska- Lincoln has devised a plan to finance an 8,000-seat ex- pansion at Memorial Stadium, but implementation of the plan and stadium construction depend on fan support. The NU Board of Regents Saturday accepted the stadium expansion plan, which calls for "testing the market" by giving Nebraskans less than a month to pre-order season football tickets for the 1978 season. Although current plans are for an 8,000-seat expansion, UNL Chancellor Roy Young said the number of seats could be increased if more than 8,000 Nebraskans order season tickets. Persons who currently hold season tickets, which are renewed annually, will not have to make special orders for 1978 season tickets, UNL officials said. "The cost of the (ad- ditional) seats will be paid for by applying one-half the in- come from those seats and by a surcharge on all tickets sold until any debt has been retired," Young said. Young estimated it would take seven or eight years to retire" debts incurred by the stadium expansion. He also said the surcharge must be approved by the Big Eight Conference before it is im- plemented. UNL said all orders for tickets, which cost $55.50 plus 50 cents for handling, must be received by April 16, at which time the board will decide whether to proceed with the expansion project. The board said the decision must be made in April to insure completion of the project by the 1978 season. UNL Athletic Director Bob Devaney said the response to the advance ticket sale will be a good guage of whether there is enough fan support to warrant the stadium ex- pansion. "This is the best way of taking a survey and being accurate," Devaney said. Several regents asked De- vaney what would happen if the Big Eight denied Nebraska's request to pay for the additional seats with a surcharge on tickets. "I think there's a very good chance that it will be allowed," Devaney said. Wilber Regent Robert Prokop last month suggested the regents consider pulling out of the Big Eight because he said Nebraska loses a lot of money by splitting its revenue with the conference. Prokop said again Saturday that there is a possibility Nebraska would withdraw from the league, but he said that determination probably will be made after the Big Eight votes on the proposed ticket surcharge.
