KSHSAA suspends 2 Kapaun cagers The Salina Journal Friday, January 24,1986 Page 15 TOPEKA (AP) - The executive board of the Kansas State High School Activities Association ruled Thursday that two members of the Wichita Kapaun-Mt. Carmel High School basketball team are ineligible for the remainder of their senior years because they received improper tuition assistance. The ruling by the nine-member board, which followed a hearing, means the high school careers of Chris Fox and Rod Redo are ended. The players were suspended Dec. 13 after officials of the school and the Catholic Diocese of Wichita discovered the pair had, received tuition assistance from one or more outside sources. Both were starters on the Crusaders' basketball team, which was ranked No. 1 in Class 5A in the Associated Press consensus rankings at the start of the season, but began losing games after the players were suspended. Steve Buek, head basketball coach at Kapaun-Mt Carmel, also was suspended by the school and diocese officials because he allegedly knew of the assistance. The KSHSAA executive committee decided Thursday to continue Buck's suspension, pending an investigation Two share lead in LPGA event BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — Betsy King and Judy Dickinson scored 4-under par 68s Thursday to tie for the first- round lead in the $200,000 Mazda Classic, the opening tournament on the LPGA's 1986 schedule. King and Dickinson were one stroke ahead of veteran Beth Daniel and two young players who have yet to win an event, Australian Jane Crafter and rookie Tammy Frederickson. Dickinson started on the back nine and was 3-under at the turn on the new Stonebridge Golf and Country Club's 6,368-yard, par-72 course. She said she got a lift at the start of her round when she scored birdies on the first two holes with putts of 30 and 25 feet. "I've been improving steadily since last year," she said. "My short game is coming together and I'm putting a lot better." She really saved her round, however, on the final hole. Her drive at No. 9 stopped four feet behind a tree. Although she says she doesn't slice the ball well, she decided against trying to hook it around the tree. Her sliced 7- iron shot around the other side of the tree reached the green of the 355-yard hole, and she holed a 25-foot birdie putt. King, also starting on the back nine, gained her share of the lead with a birdie 2 at the seventh hole, where she sank an 8-foot putt. Big Apple NET revises format NEW YORK (AP) — The Big Apple National Invitation Tournament, played this season for the first time, will have a new format next tune, Pete Carlesimo, executive director of the college basketball event, has announced. Instead of playing doubleheaders in four neutral arenas, eight seeded teams will be chosen and awarded the game either at home or a nearby major arena, Carlesimo said. The other eight teams in the 16-team tournament will be chosen at a later date, and the entire field will be seeded and paired. Second-round home games will be awarded to the higher seeded team with the best attendance record or to a team that travelled in the first round. After the first round, teams will be re-seeded and sites will be chosen for the regional finals. The semifinals and championship doubleheaders will be played at New York's Madison Square Garden. Rod Redo (left) and Chris Fox await the ruling on their basketball eligibility during Thursday's hearing hi Topeka. by the activities association of his role in the matter. Kapaun-Mt. Carmel is one of eight teams competing in the Salina Invitational Tournament this week. The Crusaders won their first-round game Wednesday against Russell and will play Salina Central tonight at 6:45 in a semifinal game. Nelson Hartman, KSHSAA execu- tive secretary, said an internal audit by Kapaun-Mt. Carmel also revealed a third athlete may have had his tuition paid by a source other than his parents. A hearing was scheduled for Feb. 13 to hear the case of the third student, who Hartman said will not be publicly identified until a decision is rendered. Fox and Redo were present for Thursday's hearing at KSHSAA headquarters here. The executive board met in private to Ynake its decisions. It ruled the two youths had violated KSHSAA rules by allowing someone other than their parents or guardians to pay their tuition to attend Wichita's largest parochial high school. Technically, the board held the two players would be ineligible for as many of Kapaun's future games as they played while ineligible, which Hartman said covered a 2%-year period. The practical effect, the executive secretary said, was to make Fox and Redo ineligible for further competition because both are seniors. Hartman said the executive board instructed him to conduct an investigation into "issues that were not all that clear today" as far as Buck's involvement. Buek remains suspended until that probe is finished, he said. The third, unnamed Kapaun-Mt. Carmel player whose tuition payments were identified in the school's own audit as having been paid by someone else was asked to appear with his parents at the hearing which will start at 11 a.m. on Feb. 13.

Green grabs Phoenix Open lead PHOENIX (AP) - PGA champion Hubert Green birdied his last hole for an 8-under-par 63 and a one-stroke lead in the first round Thursday of the $500,000 Phoenix Open Golf Tournament. "A fun round of golf," said the 39- year-old veteran, who scored his 19th career victory in the 1985 PGA national championship. "I'm close to doing it the way I want to." Green scattered nine birdies across his card, including a 20-footer on his last hole at the Phoenix Country Club that gave him sole possession of the top spot- Green A single stroke back at 64 was a starry group made up of the defending title-holder, Calvin Peete, former PGA champ Hal Sutton, the white-haired Australian Greg Norman and Larry Mize. "A marvelous day," said Peete, who scored a runaway victory in the Tournament of Champions two weeks ago, "It seemed like I couldn't do anything wrong." Norman, the massive hitter who has come to be known as the "Great White Shark," couldn't say the same. He inadvertently violated a standard of golf etiquette when he drove the green on a par-4 hole, hitting into a crouched JackNicklaus. Nicklaus was hunkered over a birdie putt when Norman's drive trickled across the green on the 320-yard hole. "I saw the ball out of the corner of my eye, and stepped back from the putt. It was no big deal," said Nicklaus. After a moment he returned to the putt and made it, for one of the few birdies he was able to convert on the bright, warm, sunny day. Nicklaus, 46, opened the 25th PGA Tour season of his matchless career with a 72. Tom Watson recorded the same total for his first round of the year, a 1-over-par effort that left him well back in the pack. Tied at 65 on the friendly little Phoenix Country Club course that yielded subpar scores to more than half the field of 144 were Jeff Sluman, Barry Jaeckel and Jack Renner. British Open champion Sandy Lyle of Scotland led the big group at 66 that also included George Archer, Andy Bean, David Graham, Mike McCullough, Ronnie Black, Jeff Grygiel, Joe Inman, T.C. Chen and Tom Sieckmann. Green, who started his day's play from the 10th tee, lofted short irons inside of three feet on the llth and 12th and then dropped his longest putt of the day, a 25-footer, for a third consecutive birdie on the 13th. He had to hit a shot left-handed from beneath a tree on he 16th and made his only bogey, then opened a string of four consecutive birdies on the 17th. Three came on iron shots close to the hole and the other was a 2-putt birdie-4. The Competition Just Doesn't Stack Up! jj Product . quality, in_ , . p_Ji stallation knowhow.
