7th-8th Graders Small But Spirited By CONRAD DOWNING Ottawa's fiery seventh and eighth grade coach, Don Kornhaus, looked a little wearied by the grind of a basketball campaign, especially since he started the 1962-63 trip without an experienced player and prospects were dim. However, the veteran mentor reached down in his sachel of samples and came up with S victories and 3 losses along with a surprising band of players. Kornhaus confessed that his basketeers probably were the smallest team in the area as its starting five averaged 5-4, but he placed a lot of stock in a necessary commodity — team pride. Coach Kornhaus came to Ottawa five campaigns ago and for the, last four years compiled a winning record of 31 wins and 11 losses. Of the current crop of ball hawks, he praised each as he said their lack of experience had him worried at the outset The season progressed and so did the Ottawans. "Our top player was Dean Ban-," said Kornhaus. "He was the.team leader and usually the way he played seemed to be the way we played. He's one of the better kids we've had," stated Korhnaus. Hhat covers a lot of room as one of the Kornahu • nen, Ronnie Mendel!, now holds down a starting berth on the high school squad as a sophomore. Mendell was a standout performer in his 7th and 8th grade seasons. Kornhaus continued to praise his shorties: "Two other boys really came along and played. I don't know what we'd have done without the trio (Barr, Alan Buck and Madison Stein). They were some of the best for control of the boards. They got in there and dished it out," grinned Don. Later on, he brought in his two guards, Dennis Wieneke and Dan Seymour. "Seymour and Wieneke teamed well at guards, and Bob Hardage came through as a fine relief man." Kornhaus selected three games as memorable: "The Lawrence Central game WINNING WHIRLWINDS — These Ottawa Junior High 7th and 8th graders have closed basketball season with -win. 3-loss record. First row, from left: Chuck Waymire, Robert Meyers, Dennis Wieneke. Second row, from left, Danny Seymour, Jake Heck, Bob Hardage, Teddy Haworth and Tom Drake. Third row, from left: Doug Underwood, Joe Moody, Alan Buck, Madison Stein, Dean Barr and Johnny Wilson. (Ottawa High Photo). probably was one of our most outstanding games as we tied the contest 20-20, coming from behind, and won it in an overtime 21-20." (Madieson Stein hit a free throw in the overtime for that victory.) His second choice was the avenging of a 2-point loss to Lawrence West with a 42-15 trouncing on the Ottawa hardwoods. Reeling off Iiis third choice, the Rosedale tilt, Kornhaus proclaimed it as "Our best game and one of the finest junior high games I've ever seen." Ottawa downed the Rosedale five, 37-28. Next year's team probably will be built around his returning starters, Barr and Wieneke, along with Doug Underwood, a reserve who logged a lot of playing time. Church league and the recreation program will nourish the team with interested players who developed enough to make next year's traveling squad. This season's scoring punch came from Dean Barr who scored 115 points for a 10.5 average. Dennis Wieneke, 4-10, chucked in 72 for a 6.5 average while Madison Stein connected for 65 and a 5.9 average. Alan Buck scored 49 points for a 4.9 average while the other regular, Danny Seymour, didn't score big this year but was a good floor man and ball handler. Kornhaus, an ex-marine, passed on the winning temperment to his tough little "leathernecks," a spirit which prompted the coach to exclaim after his boys knocked off Lawrence West to avenge an earlier loss, "We beat them 27 points and I'm just sorry it wasn't 28."

Overbrook took the lead early in the game and was ahead, 31-24, at halftime. The Orioles forged ahead in the third quarter with 14 points and tied the game, 3838. In the final period Overbrook broke the tie, scoring 22 points to Princeton's 9. Jim Hepner was second high scorer for Overbrook Coach Richard Snell's Gophers with 12 points. Francis Wiederholt was top man for Princeton Coach Jim Pollom with 12 points. Princeton will host Fontana next. Overbrook will play Melvern for the Osage County League championship Friday night.

Finishing the season with a 56 record, the Drakemen ready themselves for an attack on the EKL tournament crown to match that of their older brothers-in- Red, the Cyclones. Ottawa will meet Olathe at 6:30 on Thursday with the other first round game between Bonner Springs and Turner. The Whirlwinds have been depending upon the shots of Dale Spears as the lean eager has tallied 100 points over the 11-game route for a 9.0 average. Spears gives the Reds a potent scorer when he's right. His high for the season was two 17-point outbursts Left - hander Scott Killough ranks second among the Ottawa scorers as he is clipping along with a 6.9 mark for 11 bouts. Scott tallied 76 points during the regular season. Ronnie Lloyd, 6-2 and the top rebounder for the Reds, scored 71 points for a 6.4 clip. Lloyd works out of the center slot and is a pivotal point for dominance of the boards. Ron Boyer, 4.3 average with 48 points, and Dale Dietrich, 3.7 on 41 counters, provide the Whirlwinds with two more big men at the guard and forward position. Top reserve Morris Bennett clicked for 19 points and a 2.1 average for the season. Ottawa combined to knock off Olathe 29-25 and 40-30 as well as whipping Bonner Springs 3418 for the only EKL victories to date. The Reds dropped bouts to Turner, 30-21 and 36-29; Argentine 34-29; Rosedale 38-31 for a 3-4 record against East Kansas opponents and 2-3 in league play. Against outside competition, the Whirlwinds whipped Lawrence Central 24-21 and Lawrence West 58-48 but ran aground of West 56-40 the second time around as well as Central 63-28. Their final record was 5-6. The dates for the tournament are Feb. 7-14-16, said Coach Drake. "Our chances are pretty good as we've knocked off Olathe before. If the kids play ball we could win."
