Courier Rwri - Saturday, May U, 1MR _ Pagi IT'S ALWAYS an honor to be selected as the Most Valuable Player of any team by your teammates and this trophy being held and admired by Terry Richardson is the one he received for just such'an honor.

(Courier News Photo) Harrison Entrants' Reactions .While his entrant, Billy Coleman, was not among the high finishers in Thursday's Meet of .Champions track meet at Little Rock, Harrison High School track coach Abel White said yesterday that he was very ' pleased he had taken Billy to the meet. Twice postponed by inclement weather, the meet which brought together the top. runners in the 'state, was held at .Quigley Stadium amid rainstorms which slowed down chances for possible record- breaking performances. "Billy came in eighth in the junior division 100-yard dash but all the places from second to eighth were very close," White said. "In the 220-yard dash, Billy finished fifth but it was raining during that run so it slowed all the boys down," the coach added. * * * "Even though we didn't take any prizes, I'm glad that we had a chance to go to the meet, I think it was a real good experience for Billy and myself," White concluded. Coleman is only a ninth-grader and his coach said he is looking forward to even better performances from Billy next season. • Coleman qualified for the Thurday event by taking first place in the 220 and second in the 100 at "'the... earlier..state championships.

(Courier Newti. Photo) Seeking Preakness Associated Press Sports Writer .BALTIMORE (AP) — Dancers Image, disqualified after finishing first in the Kentucky Derby, went after the second jewel of racing's Triple Crown today — the Preakness o£ Pimli- Dancer's Image's CO. Once agin, main adversary was Calumet Farm's Forward Pass, moved to first in the Derby when Peter Fuller's colt was disqualified after a post-race test .disclosed an illegal medication in his system. Completing the field of 10 3- year-olds were Jig Time, Martins Jig, Nodouble, Out of the Way, Ringmaster, Sir Beau, And Tommy Ennis was ready to traditionally recognize the winner with paint. Situated in the track's infield atop a replica of the burned- down members' clubhouse is a weathervane shaped like a jockey on a horse. Each year the racing colors of are painted on the jockey, where they remain until there is a new winner. That is Ennis' job. Post time for today's 93rd running of the 1 3-16 mile, $150,000-added classic was 5:30 p.m., .EOT. Coverage on national television was set from 5-5:45 p.m. and .on radio from 5:205:40 p.m.j both by CBS. Of the 10 3-year-olds entered, only three ran in the Kentucky Derby-Dancer's Image, Forward Pass and Jig Time. The last time as few as three Kentucky Derby starters ran in the Preakness was 1957. Bold Ruler, fourth in the Derby won; Derby winner Iron Leibe was second and Federal Hill, fifth in the Derby, was last in the seven-horse field. Ennis has had seven year's experience at his paint job, which takes about two minutes to complete.
