Welco proposes to CHSAA reduction in athletic events Wed., March 10,1976 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE 39 By HANDY BANOERT Tribune Spurts Writer In an effort to shorten overlapping sports seasons, the Welco Assn. principals IZZ "^''"'te^fc'IfehSchool Activities Assn. (CHSAA) fir a redurtion in the number of contests in some sports and the clanging of seasons in . mit ' and whal TMW f * is a " ov«" emphasis on athletics, the principals hope to reduce the number of contests and also umit sports activities to Thursday through Saturday. Monday through Wednesday would be left open for academic pursuits Bill Hupp, principal at Platle Valley High School, said the implications of the proposals are many. "Timewise, we are almost all in agreement that the monster (athletics) may rise upaml devour the academic program," he said. "Facilities are being taxed to the limit, and the energy problems we face demand some response on our part." The solutions which the Welco propose include a reduction in the number of gymnastics meets, volleyball matches; swim meets, basketball games wrestling matches and baseball games. It also includes changing the seasons in girl's gymnastics, girl'sswimmingand baseball. Also, the Welco recommends that golf be dropped as a competitive sport. Last year the Welco Assn. made similar proposals to the CHSAA, but was told the proposals had been made too late. When the Welco protested the CHSAA changed its story, saying that other leagues had made similar suggestions The CHSAA never did act on the Wclco's proposals. Rupp admitted that the "problems in cutting back are compounded by some rather vocal demands on the part of many people. It's hard to speculate on our chances in getting these proposals accepted," Rupp said. If the proposals are rejected, the Welco may still make the reductions, or at least some of them, within the league. Keith Neal, Highland High School principal, said, "I imagine that the Welco will cut some programs whether the state does or not. We, of course, will have to stay in line with the state playoff system, so we couldn't change the season on baseball, for example." Kish, Baldwin eye nationals By UNC NEWS SERVICE Heavyweight. Jim Risk and 190-pounder Bill Baldwin carry the hopes of University of Northern Colorado wrestling with them this week as they head for the national Division 1 championships. The two qualified for the nationals by virtue of their finishes in the Western Regional Independent tournament held two weeks ago at UNC. National tournament action gets underway in Tucson, Ariz., Thursday and continues through Saturday. In order to qualify, major college independents had to have 1 wrestlers finish first or second in the Western Regional. Kish won his second regional title in three years at the tournament by virtue of a pin of Drake's Jerry Anderson in the finals. Kish won the regional crown two years ago, then missed competition last season with a knee injury. Heading into the tournament, Kish has an 18-4-1 record for the year with 10 falls to his credit. An honorable mention A!l- Amcrican, Kish has lost only to defending champion Greg Gibson of Oregon and Colorado Slate's Tom Burns. Baldwin, meanwhile, has put together a 23-8 record with seven pins en route to his qualification effort. The junior reached the finals of tb.e .Western Regional tourney, but 'fell to Cal Poly's Chris Anaya. Kish and Baldwin are the only UNC wrestlers to qualify for the tournament. Pioneers face Michigan Tech By The Associated Press Western Collegiate Hockey' Association teams begin (wo rounds of playoff action tonight, with eight clubs vying for two berths in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) championships in Denver two weeks away. WCHA regular-season titlist Michigan Tech plays host to eight-place Denver and runner- up Michigan State hosts Wisconsin. The surprising Badgers puttered around the cellar most of the season but climbed into seventh place on the last weekend of action to clinch a playoff berth. The Badgers aren't as bad as their record indicates, and neither is anybody else, says Minnesota Coach Herb Brooks, whose third-place Gophers will be at home against sixth-place Colorado College. "This might be the year of the upset," said Brooks, "and you couldn't even call them upsets." The other playoff matches fifth-place Notre Dame at fourth-place Michigan. The playoffs consist of two games, tonight and Thursday night, with the winner determined by total goals scored both nights. Thus, a team could lose 1-0 the first night but win 4-2 the second, finishing with a 4-3 goals-scored advantage. The winners of this week's first round will be matched against each other Saturday and Sunday, and two teams will emerge to represent the WCHA in the NCAA championships, where the WCHA has traditionally been dominant.' Michigan Tech, the defending NCAA champion, won the conference this year with a bulge of eight points, surprising most everybody. Tech did this despite losing goalie Jim Warden to the U.S. Olympic team. Denver will have tough going there. Michigan State has been passed by its power play and faces.a tough test from Wisconsin. Colorado College has one of the league's toughest goalies in Ed Mio, and hold several scoring threats as well. Satellite betting parlors challenged by kennel club COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (DPI) - Officials of the Rocky Mountain Kennel Club say they will ask the Colorado Racing Commission for a legal ruling on the legality of satellite betting parlors in the slate. "What we want to find out is if the present statutes will allow us to open a satellite parlor a branch office, to to speak -- in. say, Denver," said Donald L. Cloud, secretary- treasurer of the Colorado Springs greyhound track. "We are not seeking a ruling on the legality of off-track betting. We're making a sharp distinction between satellite Neal also speculated that at least parts of the proposals will be accepted by the CHSAA. "The people are ready for it now. With the increase in girl's sports and the amount of travel involved, I think some cuts may go through." Neal said the CHSAA Board of Control will make a decision on the Welco's proposals in early April. The total number of changes proposed by the Welco are 13, which includes the limiting of athletic events toThursday through Saturday. The others are: -Changing girl's gymnastics from a fall to a spring sport so that both sexes could travel and hold meets together (but score them separately). --Limiting the number of boy's and girl's gymnastics meets to 10, compared to the current limit of 12, exclusive of qualifying or state championships. --Girl's gymnastics practice may commence Sept. 1, with the competitive season beginning on March 1. --Volleyball teams would be limited to 16 matches, compared with the current IB, exclusive of qualifying and state tournament meets. --Change girl's swimming to a winter sport, again so that boy's and girl's meets could be held together, but scored separately. --Limit boy's swim teams to 12 meets, excluding qualifying and state tournaments, compared to the current limit of 14. - Drop the CHSAA sanction on golf as a competitivesport. --Limit the number of basketball games, both boy's and girl's, to 16 games a year, excluding sub-district, district and state tournament games. (The Northeastern League currently has this same limit, and Brush has fielded com petitive basketball teams year after year). --Limit the number of wrestling dates by a team to 14 and wrestling matches by an individual to 18, excluding district and state competition. The current limit is no more than 22 individual matches, except for district and state, with no more than four in one day. Begin baseball practice on March 15, with the competitive season to start April 9. Currently, baseball practice starts on March I and games start March 10. --Limit the number of baseball games to 1C, excluding qualifying and state tournaments, compared to the current limit of 18.
