Close Fight Expected In NCAA Track Meet AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) - The talent is so good among the United States' swiftest and strongest college track athletes that only three of the six- defending NCAA champions are rated the best in their events this year for the 53rd annual NCAA track and field meets. They are Doug Brown of Tennessee in the steeplechase, Hans Hoglund of Texas-El Paso in the shot put and Robert Primeaux of Texas in the 440 hurdles. The 53rd a n n u a l N C A A track and field championships are scheduled here Tuesday through Saturday, beginning with the decathlon. But with that exception the finals will be run Friday and Saturday evenings to avoid temperatures which most likely will be in the 90s.

In the second echelon are Oregon State, North Carolina Central, San Diego State, host Texas, Oregon, B r i g h a m Young University, Colorado and Washington State. It is the first time since 1957 that the NCAA championships have been held in Memorial Stadium, but four stadium records set at the NCAA meet on a cinder track that year are still intact. The stadium now has an artificial track. Bobby Morrow of Abilene Christian College sped the 100 in 9.3 seconds; Lee Calhoun of North Carolina College ran the" 120 hurdles in 13.6, Don Bowden of California ran the 880 in 1:47.2; and Angel Robinson of Fresno State, in an event that has been discontin- Blalock To Join Male Pros NEW YORK (AP) - Jane Blalock, one of the leading money winners on the women's professional golf tour, will join 15 male athletes in the annual Sports Celebrity Tennis Tournament starting Monday in Las Vegas. Sponsors announced Saturday in New York that Miss Blalock would become the first woman competitor in the event. She specialized in tennis and golf at Rollins College. Leading pro athletes compete in doubles in the two-day event. Competitors include football stars 0. J. Simpson, Deacon Jones and Jim Kiick, basketball players Gail Goodrich and Rick Barry and the 62-year-old former home run hitter of the Detroit Tigers, Hank Greenberg. Past competitors have included Satchel Paige, Bobby Fischer of chess fame and the world's leading jockey, Bill Shoemaker. Two M. H. Netters In NAIA Two Morris Harvey College tennis players, Dan Logan and John Sciara, will represent the West Virginia Intercolle- tiate Athletic Conference in the NAIA National Tennis Tournament which begins Monday in Kansas City, Mo. Logan and Sciara qualified by winning the WVIAC championship in doubles but they will also play singles in the tournament. Logan, a senior from Harrisonburg, Va., compiled a 13-6 record playing first singles. Sciara, a freshman from West Babylon, N.Y., played second singles and compiled a 19-5 record. ued. was clocked in 22.2 for the 220 hurdles. Near Record This year, the individual attracting the most attention of the 1,200 entries is miler Tony Waltirop of North Carolina, who has run 3:53.2, a few quick steps off Jim Ryun's world record of 3:51.1. Waldrop ran second last year to Olympic 800-meter champion Dave Wottle and had run 11 consecutive sub- four minute miles before slowing down in a recent race at Modesto, Calif. Four other milers who have run under four minutes will test W a l d r o p . a 6 - f o o t , 145-pound senior. Villanova Coach Jumbo Elliot says Waldrop will "run past 3:50 like it's not there." UCLA, which has won three straight NCAA team titles, will be seeking a sixth consecutive NCAA victory in the mile relay. Its best time this year is 3:07.7, but the Bruins appear capable of running faster. UCLA also has the most versatile athlete in the meet in Rory Kotinek who, in a single meet this spring, cleared 7-0% in the high jump and 25-5 in the long jump and heaved the javelin 253-8. The winner of the 26-mile Boston Marathon, Irish Olympian Neil Cusack of East Tennessee State, will run the three and six-mile races. Other 1973 defending champions who have qualified this year are Marshall Dill of Michigan State in the 220, Charlie Maguire of Penn State in the six-mile and Jacques Accambray of Kent State in the hammer throw. 318 State High School Players To Begin Tournament Monday Some 318 high school tennis players from throughout the state begin play at 8:15 a.m. Monday in the annual West Virginia State High School Tennis Tournament at Watt Powell Annex, Morris Harvey, and Horace Mann Junior High School.

Hatfield (CM vs. Harmon (N), Hatten (HE) vs. Evert Advances To Rome Finals ROME (AP) -- Top-seeded Chris Evert, playing see-saw tennis, advanced to the worn- en's singles final Saturday while Stan Smith powered his way into a men's singles semifinal showdown against top- seeded Hie Nastase in the $134,000 Rome Open. Miss Evert beat fourth- seeded Olga Morozova of the Soviet Union 6-1, 1-6, 6-0 and will play in Sunday's sinal againstlS-yeotthyarie Navrati- lova of Czechoslovakia, a 6-4, 6-1 winner over South African Pat Pretorius. Smith beat fellow American Brian Gottfried 6-3, 6-4, while Nastase eliminated Russian Alex Metroveli 6-1, 7-5. The other men's semifinal will pit Swedish star Bjorn Borg against Guillermo Villas of Argentina. Borg beat Manuel Orantes of Spain 6-2, 7-4, and Vilas ousted Steve Krulevitz of Baltimore 6-0, 6-1. Miss Evert hardly missed a point in the first set, playing methodically from the baseline and passing Miss Morozo- va down the sidelines every time the Russian moved to the net. But in the second set, Miss Evert began missing the corners and putting her passing shots in the corridors, and after the American won a game to trail 2-1, Miss Morozova won four straight games and the set. Dominated Miss Evert was back on her game in the third set and yielded just four points in the first five games as she dominated the set. Gottfried, from Miss Evert's hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., took a 3-0 lead in the first set against Smith, but then the fourth-seeded Smith won six straight games and the set with bullet serves and mastery at the net. Gottfried broke Smith's service for a 2-1 lead in the second set. Smith then broke right back for a tie and, with the score 4-4, Smith broke Gottfried again to set up his victory. The 23-year-old Krulevitz looked tired and never really was in his match against Vilas, who was playing at his best. Neither player was seeded. Borg, seeded third, used steady baseline play in beating Orantes, who was forced into numerous mistakes. In the women's doubles semifinals Miss Evert and Miss Morozova beat Linky Boshoff and Miss Pretorius 6-3. 6-4, and Helga Masthoff and Heide Orth of West Germany beat Lany Kaligis and Lita Sugiarto of Indonesia 6-1. 6-7. 6-4. In the men's doubles quarterfinals Tom Gorman of Seattle and Marty Riessen, of Amelia Island, Fla., beat Charles Pasarell of Puerto Rico, and Erik van Dillen, of Aptos, Calif., 6-3, 6-4; Hans Pohmann and Jurgen Fassbender, West Germany, beat Sherwood Stewart, Goose Creek, Tex., and Dick Dell, Bethseda, Md., 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, and Raul Ramirez, Mexico, and Brian Gottfried, Ft.
