THE SALINA JOURNAL SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 11,1997 Pjj T HIGH SCHOOL SWIMMING Coellner leads Salina swimmers at 1-70 By The Journal Staff MANHATTAN — Eight Salina athletes collected a total of 16 medals at the annual 1-70 League Swimming and Diving Championships Friday night at the Kansas State University natatorium. Salina South senior Kelly Coellner collected the lone gold medals for the Salina swimmers, winning the 50 and 100-yard freestyle events. Medals were awarded for top-three finishes. Manhattan repeated as team champion with 427 points, topping Topeka West in second at 339. South finished third with 240 points, while Salina Central — hampered by the disqualification of two relay squads — was last, six points behind fifth-place Junction City. A South school record did fall for the second time in eight days. Coellner, Megan Weaver, Amanda Lampe and Mica Zier combined to finish third in the 200 medley relay, but their time of 2:01.94 broke the record they established last week by one-twentieth of a second. The same four swimmers represented South in the 200 freestyle BRIEFLY relay and placed second in that event, swimming a 1:47.52. In addition to Coellner's wins in the freestyle sprints, Lampe had South's only other individual medal with a second-place finish in the 100 butterfly (1:06.93). Salina Central's Abby Porter, the Mustangs' lone state qualifier next week, finished second in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:06.80. Porter also swam with Karyn Brown, Sarah Franklin and Sadie Weis on the Central 400 freestyle relay squad, placing third in that event with a time of 4:19.93. "We were a little disappointed in Central's finish, because we thought we would be looking at Topeka High in fourth place," Salina coach Keith Smith said. "But the meet was fun because South had a lot of freshmen who didn't even know at one time that they would be swimming in the I- 70 League meet. "The dropped time and scored some points. And I don't think they were prepared to walk into the league championships and score points, but they did because they swam faster." South freshmen Bethany John- son and Becky Glower finished fifth and sixth, respectively, in the diving competition, while freshman Jennifer Durst was sixth in the 100 backstroke. The Cougars also had fourth- place finishes from Lampe in the 50 freestyle (26.46), Zier in the 500 freestyle (6:10.78) and Weaver in the 100 breaststroke (1:19.90). Several Salina athletes will swim in the same pool next weekend at the Kansas State Swimming and Diving Championships, marking the finale of the 1997 season. Friday's league meet wrapped up the year for non state qualifiers. HEART OF AMERICA SPORTS CAMPS KANSAS PREMIER CAMPS BOYS & GIRLS AGES (9-17) SIGN UP TODAY!

KS 67402-1096 "THE TRADITION CONTINUES" Central baseball team takes second at Hays HAYS — Salina Central's baseball team emerged from the Western Plains Diamond Classic with a 3-1 record and second-place finish after winning twice Saturday. Following Friday's loss to eventual tournament champion Hays, the Mustangs rebounded by defeating Ulysses 10-5 and Derby 6-3. "It was a good tournament for us," said Central coach Bill Bartow, whose club climbed to 8-10 on the season. "We played four real good games. Even in the Hays loss we were in the ballgame the entire way, but just didn't get the hits when we needed them." Against Ulysses, the Mustangs gained control when they sent 13 batters to the plate during a nine• run second inning. Ulysses helped Central's cause by committing five of its six errors during the inning and the Mustangs did their part by rapping out six hits. Todd Just delivered the key blow, a two-run double. . Bobby Bartow led the Mustangs' nine-hit attack with a double and two singles. Another big inning benefited Central against Derby. The Mustangs broke a scoreless tie in the fourth inning by scoring five times with two outs. That was more than enough cushion for Just (3-0), who scattered five hits and struck out six. "He was pretty much in command of his pitches the entire game," Bartow said. Just, Dan Divilbiss, Brian Lamone, Brian Gary (three-run homer) and Parker Wallace (two- run double) each had two hits to lead the way for Central. Stroer stays unbeaten, wins at Manhattan MANHATTAN — Pete Stroer raised his season's record to 26-0 and the No. 1 doubles team of John Huseman and Jeff Lamb placed third Saturday for Salina Central at the Manhattan Invitational. Stroer won all five of his matches, defeating Michael Bonebrake of Topeka High 8-0 in the championship match. He lost only three games the entire day. Central finished second in the team standings with 44 points. Blue Valley North won the title with 60. Salina South placed sixth with 20 points. Central's Daniel Koeppel placed fourth in No. 2 singles and the team of John O'Hara and Lance Jones took fifth in No. 2 doubles. "Pete wasn't pushed today," Central coach Bob Warkentine said. "He played well. "Huseman and Lamb also played well and so did Daniel. O'Hara and Jones are a new doubles team and did a pretty good job." South was led by Darren Peterson and Steve Horn, who combined to place fifth in No. 1 doubles. Eric Roth placed sixth in No. 1 singles. Central drops softball twinbill to Topeka West TOPEKA — Salina Central dropped two 1-70 League softball games Saturday to Topeka West fall to 8-7 on the season. The Mustangs lost the opener 70 and the second 6-2. Central got two hits in the first game and three in the second, two of the doubles by Ashley Wilson. "Their pitcher did a good job of keeping our hitters off balance and moved the ball around real well," Central coach Jerre Davis said.

(OFFER ENDS 5/25/97^ Smart / South trio good on field, in class FROM PAGE D1 Hamel and Deuth first met Hannebaum when they were all members of the same slow-pitch softball team sponsored by Ted Augustine Furniture. The following summer they joined the Salina Sliders fast-pitch squad, and have been with that team every summer since. The Sliders roster at one time also included Salinans Ginger Brown and Nicole Knipp, Governor's Scholars Award recipients from Sacred Heart. Although Hannebaum, Hamel and Deuth each participates in various school activities and organizations, softball is the one sport in which they all take part. Hamel and Hannebaum form South's starting battery — Hamel at pitcher and Hannebaum catcher — while Deuth is a starter in center field. "All three of us have played together for so long, we have confidence in each other and know what is going to happen when the others are involved in a play or batting," Hamel said. "I credit a lot of what I've done to Karmen. I've pitched to her for so long that we really trust each other out there and a lot of times, she calls the pitch I'm thinking of." According to school officials, South doesn't designate a student as valedictorian and salutatorian each year. Even if such an honor were to be bestowed on only the top two students, it is unlikely that any sort of competition would have developed between the three academic leaders. "In softball we've always played on the same team, so there's not much competition there," Hannebaum said. "But we are all very competitive by nature and being at the top of our class, we look at each other and say 'She's getting her homework in so I need to get mine.' It's never been anything negative though, always positive." Another thing the girls share, according to Hoelting, is a similar well- rounded family environment and the parental support they receive. Nichole is the daughter of Marvin and • Topi Hamel, Karmen the daughter of ; Leon and Judy Hannebaum, and Kelli i the daughter of Tom and Judy Deuth. ! "They have parents that are very supportive," Hoelting said. "In this day and age, kids are products of their environment. I have never • talked to the Hamels or Hannebaums or Deuths when they weren't willing to do anything to help support the activities their child is involved with." Two thirds of the trio will remain together as they begin their college careers next fall. Hamel and Hannebaum will attend Kansas State University — but will not room together — while Deuth will study at the University of Kansas. "We're psyched and excited to get out of school and go on with the rest of our lives," Deuth said. "But we really haven't had a lot of time to talk about it with each other." ,oiTmare Our CD Rates FDIC insured to $100,000 1-year 5.00% s.90% Minimum APY* Interest deposit rate $0,000 3-year 6.25% 6.25% Minimum APY* Interest deposit rate $5,000 5-year e.50% 6.50% Minimum APY* Interest deposit rate $5,000 'Annual Percentage Yield (APY)-lnterest cannot remain on deposit; periodic payout of interest is required.
