6 Section 3 Chicago Tribune, Saturday, May 19. 1990 PREPS PLUS Honor roll Third baseman Burgess Watts of the College of Du Page was named the North Central Community College Conference Player of the Year in baseball this spring. Du Page coach Steve Kranz was named the league's Coach of the Year. Streaking D Going into this weekend, the East St. Louis Lincoln girls, track team has won eight straight Class AA titles, and 11 of the last 12. The last time the Tigers didn't win was in 1981, when South Shore took the title with 52 points to Lincoln's runner-up 48. Upcoming . The boys state track meet at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston and the boys state tennis finals at Hersey High School in Arlington Heights are next weekend. History lesson D 20 years ago: Prosser won the Public League bowling title May 16 with a team score of 2,688. High man for Prosser was Stan Boczar with a 564 series, including a tournament-high game of 236. Chicago Christian in good position By Barry Temkin and Reid Hanley Chicago Tribune CHARLESTON, III. Chicago Christian, which didn't finish in the top 10 during the 1980s at the Class A girls state track meet, is in position to win the first title of the new decade. The Knights had the most qualifiers in Friday's preliminaries, sending five individuals and two relays on to the finals Saturday at Eastern Illinois University. Laura Erffmeyer and Amy Kuipers led the way for Chicago Christian, qualifying in the 800- and 1 ,600-meter runs and run- State meet notes ning legs on the qualifying 1,600 and 3,200 relays. Niaya Howard was the Knight's other qualifier, advancing in the 100 dash. Howard and Kuipers are sophomores, and Erffmeyer is a junior. So if the Knights don't win it all Saturday, there's always next year. Princeton was second in qualifying with three individuals and two relays. Kaneland was among four teams with four qualifiers. B There was a time when a qualifying heat would have been no big deal for Erin Boland. But the McHenry junior was smiling with relief after advancing to the 1 ,600 final by placing third in her heat in 5:09.0. - ' v rr- ' - " "i : - - - " xv ' Track Tribune photo by John Kunt2 Homewood-Flossmoor's Annatte Finley protect themselves from the Thomas (left) and Proviso West's Judy sun at Friday's preliminaries. "It's big because I know I can run now," she said. "My times have not been close to what they the state's other top runners have been doing. This helps my confidence." Boland won the Class AA cross-country title as a sophomore, but finished back in the pack last fall because of injury. In last year's state track meet, she failed to qualify in the 1,600 and scratched from the 3,200. Boland acknowledged that those disappointments have given her an extra incentive to run well Saturday, when she will run the 3,200 and the 1,600. H Edwardsville's Christina Perozzi had more that just qualifying on her mind in the Class AA 300-meter low hurdles. She was aiming to break the meet record of 43.56 she set last year, but had to settle for a 44.37, the day's top time. Besides winning the 300 hurdles last year, Perozzi placed second in the 100 high hurdles. She hopes to win both Saturday but knows it will be tough to beat Evanston's Renee Murphy, who set a meet record of 14.39 Friday. Perozzi was second in her heat in 15.23. "I'd really like to win both," said Perozzi, who will attend Indiana. "But I won't be devastated if I don't because there are a lot of great hurdlers here." B Former East St. Louis Lincoln standout Carmelita Williams is out of track. Williams, who won seven individual sprint titles for the Tigers, attended Missouri Baptist last fall before dropping out. B Evanston's Natalie Douglas has signed a letter of intent to attend Florida State next fall. Teammate Amy Ellis will go to Michigan on an academic scholarship, and Patriece Gayle has signed a letter of intent to attend Indiana State. Jackie Brown and Abby Atkinson are undecided. Continued from page 8 14.55 set last year by Joliet Central's Sharon Evans. "She looked great," said Wildkit coach Fred Spence. "That was one of her better races. If she runs any better than that, I'm scared. She got off to a good start and attacked those hurdles." The Wildkits' Natalie Douglas qualified in the 100 and 200 and will be joined in the 200 by Maubra Foster. Jackie Brown was the leading qualifier in the 400 with a 56.8 and will be in the finals with teammate Patriece Gayle. Brown also qualified for the long jump at 18-0. Abby Atkinson gave Evanston the high-jump leader. "Things are going according to plan," said Spence. "It's going to be a dogfight. We're just focused on doing the very best we can. It's exciting. Everyone would like to be in this position." Defending Class AA shot put champion Heather Nelson of Belvidere came through with the third all-time best effort in Illinois, a 46-4'i throw. In the discus, Nelson's 122-9 trails the 136-9 best by East St. Louis Lincoln's Duncan. Wheaton North sophomore Carrie Pollock had a busy afternoon, qualifying in three events. She won her heat of the 100-meter hurdles in 14.84, was third in her semi heat of the 200 in 25.5 and qualified in the long jump at 17-1034. She also anchored the Falcons' 800 relay team to second in their heat, but their 1:44.84 wasn't good enough to make the finals. "It was tough," she said, trying to catch her breath after the 200 semis. "I went from the hurdles to the long jump, and right after the long jump, I went to the relay with no break. I guess there will be more of a break tomorrow. I hope so." Highlights Driscoll Class A regional St. Benedict (15-3) scored two unearned runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to nudge Ridgewood 10-9 and move into Saturday's semifinals against Montini. Harlan 5, Simeon 4 Harlan "squeezed" its way to the Public League Southwest Section title Friday by edging defending champion Simeon, avenging a 5-4 loss to Simeon on Monday. Harlan (21-6, 12-1) broke a 4-4 deadlock in the bottom of the seventh inning when Edward Hampton walked, stole second, took third on a wild pitch and scored on a squeeze bunt by winning pitcher James Powell (6-1), who went the distance while giving up five hits and six walks. Glenn Evans belted his 18th homer of the season and Terrell Williams was 2 for 3 and drove in a run to lead Harlan's offense. The loss snapped a string of nine straight Southwest Section titles for No. 7 Simeon (21-4, 11-2). Thomwood 18, H-F 2 Cliff Floyd (2 for 3, four RBIs) cracked a three-run homer to cap an eight-run fourth inning and Ed Young (4 for 4, five RBIs) and Kenny House (3 for 3, two RBIs) also crushed home runs as No. 1 Thornwood (21-2, 11-0) clinched the SICA East title.

FROM PAGE 1 COLLEGES Cubs Continued from page 1 as soon as the ball skipped past Grace. The numbers surrounding Sandbcrg's fielding mastery are amazing: B He went 140 games without a throwing error. B His consecutive-chance record is 103 more than the next-longest streak, 479 by former Phillie Manny Trillo. B His consecutive-game record is 26 more than Jim Davenport's record of 97 by an infiel-der. Sandberg still hasn't committed an error in 75 games in At a glance BIG PLAY: Andre Dawson's first-inning RBI single got the rout rolling. TOUGH DAY: Ryne Sandberg made a bad throw to snap his errorless streak at 123 games and 582 chances. STREAKING: Sandberg's streak was twice as long as his previous best errorless-game streak. QUOTABLE: "I'm sure the record will mean more to me down the road, but for right now, it was just a bad play," Sandberg said. NEXT: Sandberg goes to work on Game 1 of the next streak at 7:05 p.m. Wrigley Field or in 97 games on grass or in 103 day games. So there. Lost in the hollering about Sandberg's blunder was a fine outing by Harkey, who raised his record to a staff-best 4-1 by scattering six hits and three walks over eight innings. Sandberg did plenty to atone at the plate, rapping out two hits to raise his batting average to .306. Sandberg started the mauling with a first-inning double off starter Bill Gullickson (2-3). He came in on a ringing single by Dawson, who later added a two-run double to run his league-leading RBI total to 35. Dawson will finish with 162 if he keeps up this one-a-day pace. The Cubs would score another run in the first, three more in the second and two more in the fifth to give Harkey a cushion he didn't need. Harkey wasn't overpowering, but he made big pitches to keep the Astros off the board despite advancing runners into scoring position four times in the first five innings. Now Sandberg will go to work on another streak. It'll take time. His next-longest errorless streak was 61 games almost exactly half as long as the record-setter. "I'm sure the record will mean more to me down the road, but for right now, it was just a bad play," Sandberg said. Someone asked which of the streak's 582 plays stood out. Sandberg didn't hesitate. "Just this last one," he said. "It's the only one I can think about right now."

The Cubs have assigned a scout to the Rangers this week, but Coolbaugh s value is slipping. He's hitting .176 with two runs batted in. The Cubs sent right-hander Jose Nunez to Triple-A Iowa after Friday's ame and recalled right-hander hawn Boskie, 23, from the same club. Boskie, 4-2 with a 3.18 ERA at Iowa, will start Sunday's game. Ryne Sandberg's errorless streak didn't distract him at the plate. Going Into Friday night, he was hitting .294 with 26 home runs and 63 RBIs since his last error, June 20, 1969. Last year's No. 1 draft pick, Earl Cunningham, is trying to learn left field at Class A Peoria. Cunningham, who still was playing for his high school a year ago this month, had played center field before signing with the Cubs, who appear set at that spot for a few years.

Northern Virginia eyes NL franchise WASHINGTON (AP) Members of an ownership group to bring a National League franchise to the nation's capital area said Friday they eventually would place the team in Northern Virginia. "It's important to realize that the media have been getting after the business community to put up or shut up," said Washington attorney Brad Fisher, one of the principals in Capital Region Baseball. Illinois House OKs bill to pay athletes By Rick Pearson Chicago Tribune SPRINGFIELD A bill that could allow Illinois' public and private universities to pay student athletes and impose courtroom-style due-process rules upon future NCAA investigations, was approved Friday by the Illinois House. On a 71-37 vote, House members sent the Senate a plan enabling schools to pay student scholarship athletes up to $250 a month for incidental living expenses if lawmakers in five other states that are home to Big 10 or Missouri Valley Conference schools also approve a similar stipend plan. Many of this state's major colleges, including the University of Illinois, oppose the bill. The NCAA has threatened to revoke membership of state schools should the bill become law. House approval was secured after its sponsor, Rep. John Cullcrton (D-Chicago), dropped a provision that would have made it a jailable offense to offer a student inducements that are on the NCAA's list of recruiting infractions. 1 1 S Overlooked?: He has been hitting over .500 all season. He hit his 10th homer m I I I '- I i: jaJ Loyola Academy both at the plate and with his leadership. But Ramblers catcher Pat Mahoney, a top All-State candidate, has yet to attract much attention from the scouts. "The scouts are looking for guys with cannons for an arm and lightning speed,'' said Loyola coach John O'Loughlin. "Hell make it, though. He's got that intangible heart, pride and desire.' OToughlin said Mahoney's future may lie at first, third or left field.

S New rules: Now that the IHSA has taken the first step in changing the boys and girls basketball tournaments, with seeding of sectionals and a new date for the Class AA boys finals, Mother McAuley coach Dianne Darrah wants one more "improvement." Namely, the abolishment of the so-called "coaches box." "That would suit me better," said Darrah. "I'm a very active coach, and that takes some of the fun out of it. It's just that some coaches get lost in the game. Camping I: St. Xavier College will hold its summer basketball camp for boys and girls ages 7-17 with the first of three sessions meeting June 1 1.
