2B The Germantown News, Thursday, November 2, 1989 poll ii Chicks owner looking for Triple-A franchise New Memphis Chicks principle owner Mike Nicklous said he will start searching immediately to relocate a Triple-A franchise in Memphis, even though he just purchased the Double-A team already here. "Once I get to the winter meetings (in Nashville in December), then I'll meet with some owners and talk about the prospects of getting affiliated with a Triple-A club and what it would take to bring them here," he said. The sale of the Chicks, the Double-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, was finalized October 16. Nicklous, a New York business man bought the Chicks from Philadelphia real estate developer Craig Stein for more than $3 million. Nicklous and partners Richard Addeo and Alan Bernikow will operate the team through the Nicklous Baseball ClubTennessee Corporation.. :' Nicklous explained that he would have to acquire an existing Triple-A franchise and move it to Memphis, after relocating the existing Double-A team. , Chicks' General Manager Pete Rizzo said the team is committed to the Royals until the 1994 season, but "at any time we can terminate the contract at the end of any season," he said. "Kansas City cannot." Meanwhile, Nicklous will make some changes at Tim McCarver Stadium. Last Wednesday at a press conference the Peabody Hotel, Nicklous presented Bob Brame, director of the Memphis Park Commission, with a $100,000 check for improvements at the Chicks' ballpark. Nicklous also announced that the stadiums concession rights had been awarded to David Sorin, owner of the Public Eye Restaurants, and Mike Garibaldi, owner of Garibaldi's Pizza. "With the Public Eye and Garibaldi's, it upgrades the quality of food at the ballpark," Nicklous said. "Now when you come out to the ballpark, you'll have something good to eat." The Chicks will also retain Dr. Eric Margenau as a consultant. Margenau, owner of three Class A franchises, alerted Nicklous that the Chicks were for sale. Nicklous said that Margenau will act as a liaison between the new owner and the team and will oversee day-to-day operations. 4 J - . New Chicks owner Mike Nicklous at Peabody press conference.

The boys team, coached for the last four years by Sid Witherington; posted a 16-0 regular season record and finished first in Region 6 for the first time in the school's history. The boys team has qualified for the state championship the last three years, finishing 9th in 1986 and '87, and 8th in '88. Their 8th place finish was the highest of any school in West Tennessee that year. Witherington said its hard for a West Tennessee team to finish in the top five at the state meet because they train on mostly flat terrain. "Teams from the east side of the state have a big advantage with the hills and mountains," he said. V - Still, Witherington has high hopes for his team. "If we finish close together, we have a good chance of finishing in the top five," he said. ' Witherington called his team "the best I've ever had here." The team is lead by seniors Chris Smith (2nd in the regional), Chris Clothier (9th), Sean McGowen (10th), Bill McGowen (14th), Kevin Gee, and juniors Lance Anssell (23rd) and Jay Hilderbrandt. Smith has the best chance of finishing well in the individual meet, Witherington said. The girls team finished second in their regional, qualifying for the championship. . Girls coach Betsy Boswell had her two best runners finish first and second in the individual meet. Senior Tiffany Myers was the individual winner, posting a Orgill Park course record of 18.48. It was the same record she had set one week earlier. Senior Kelly Elliott finished second with her personal best time for the season, Boswell said. , Boswell said both Myers and Elliott should finish well at the meet individually, but should also help the team finish in the top half of the field. Other GHS girls runners are juniors Christy Brown", Keri Dorst and Heather Dyck, and sophomores Tara Stuart and Sarah Cloud.
