4-C THE ABILENE REPORTER-NEWS Abiknt.T«j«.S«t. Morn..July 23.1977 Sports in Brief Bulls Face Elimination LUBBOCK -- The Salta Bulls ol Abilene return to action in the double-elimination semi-pro region baseball tournament at 5:30 Saturday on Lowry Field In Lubbock, facing a must- win situation from here on. The Bulls played twice in tournament openers last weekend and won once while losing one. The tournament champion gains a berth at the state semipro level at La Grange next month. The Lubbock Z's arc undefeated in region thus far. Driskill Shares Honors RUIDOSO DOWNS, N.M. -- E. Jolly Driskill shared trainer-of-the-week honors at Ruidoso Downs last week with Bub Arnett and continued to lead all trainers in win percentage. The Buffalo Gap horse rancher-trainer had 13 of his charges make the attempt and came home with four wins, two places and four shows. Arnett had four winners and two thirds out of 10 starters. Going into this weekend's races, Driskill had 87 starts thus far and has won 23 of them, a total second only to H.C. Werner Jr. who has 148 starts and 24 wins. A percentage of 26.4 of Driskill's starts were winners up'to this weekend. Fifth- three of his 87 starts have finished in the top three. Tec? Constanzo Due Surgery AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) - Longhorn quarterback Ted Constanzo will have knee surgery in San Antonio Saturday for a cartilage torn playing racquetball Thursday. Constanzo started several games.for Texas last year but played second string to freshman Mark McBath, 5-11,185, the final four games. Pressed into duty against TCU late in 1975 when Marty Akins hurt his knee, Constanzo had difficulty handling the Wishbone-T offense. Constanzo's departure leaves Jon Aune, Mike Cordaro and Randy McEachern as returning quarterbacks to contest McBath. Aune, 6-1, 200, and two freshmen, Sanford Coggins, 6-3,180, LaVerne, Calif., and Sam Ansley, 6-0, 175, Houston Cypress- Fairbanks, are considered the most likely to push McBath in the Longhorns 1 new veer attack under Fred Alters. Another freshman quarterback, Les Koenning, 5-9, 180, is "a winner," according to Akers, but because of his size is considered by some as likely to be converted into a defensive back. Frenchman Upsets Nastase PARIS (AP) -- Francois Jauffret came from two sets down to post a stunning five-set victory over Ilie Nastase Friday and help France to a 2-0 lead over Romania in the oest-of- fivc European Zone Davis Cup final. Jauffret beat Nastase 3-«, 0-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-1 in the opening match of the series. Patrick Proisy then made it 2-0 by beating Dimitru Haradau in the second singles match 6-2, 64, 84. ********** *****************. :!SCRATC1 I AND J DENT * BRAND NEW * QUALITY HOTPO * APPLIANCES!! ^9GP J * ALL FULLY GUARANTEED!!"^ * {SCRATCHED* DENTED MERCHANDISED 'SAVES YOU BIG $$S MOMENT OF TRIUMPH . .Hollii Stacy en route to 73 Stacy Still in First * BEAUTIFUL COLORS TO CHOOSE FROM SAVE ON THESE ITEMS CHASKA, Minn. (AP) Georgian Hollis Stacy scrambled with a one-over-par 73 Friday and maintained her lead in the U.S. Women's Open golf tournament with a one-under 143 total after two rounds of the 72-hole event. The 23-year-old Miss Stacy had four bogeys and two birdies on an erratic back nine. She birdied No. 13 with a wedge shot from a bunker and b i r d i e d the 16th before bogeying the final two holes of the day. Miss Stacy, who won her first Ladies Professional Golf Association tour event The Fan Strikes Back Pony Manager Backed To The Editor and Sports Writer: As a single parent of one of the baseball players that Glen Altman coached and to all the other viewers, 1 was very hurt and disappointed when the (Abilene Pony League tournament) article came on Saturday (July 16), about how Glen wasn't thanked for all his time and patience he gave to our boys and how proud he was of all of them. Instead he was put down and criticized for leaving (Bobby) Tyree on as pitcher and we lost the tournament. It was his decision not yours to judge. By the way who are you to judge? As far as the so-called committee who kick you in the back for not making the right or wrong decision? I for one could have screamed discrimination but I didn't because this game belongs to the boys not to selfish people that give so little of themselves. As for Glen Altman thank (him) for all the patience and time (he) gave to my son which I am very proud of. Congratulations on second place. A: f-cr as I am concerned (Altman's) boys are still first place. NELLIE ELPATRICK 4618 Edgemont · Abilene, Texas 79605 P.S. What would you have done if you had been in Glen Altman's place? Maybe you should try being a coach for once. Point, Counterpoint Dear Mr. Lawler: I read your article "Abilene Running A Discount Athletic Program," with great interest agreeing with its con- gratulatory commending message; the good job our school athletic administration is achieving. I disagree with just one point which seemed to me to run counter to your point. First; let me say I'd like to see the best equipment for developing our students, and I believe a new indoor pool should be in Abilene's future. The article states the school must "lean" on the YMCA for its swimming pool facilities. Speaking for the YMCA, it does not feel imposed upon. From the purchase of service service point of view, it's probably the greatest return on the dollar the school spends in its athletic program. The YMCA derives its benefits not from the pool rental which is nominal but the opportunity to serve high school youth and acquaint them with the "Y" facilities. Beverly Ball, who is known throughout the state for her coaching ability and dedication, is another bonus the YMCA derives, for. she coaches the YMCA swim team, the future high school varsity swimmers. No doubt a new high school pool would be nice, but any cost study would show it to be a high cost area of operation and maintenance. There have been a good many individual state swimming champions developed through the current program and at least one YMCA state championship team, a tribute to Beverly Ball. I submit this as part of how "Shorty" (Abilene ISD Athletic Director Shorty Lawson) stretches those dollars, perhaps one of the best examples. Sincerely, BOB BENDER Executive Director, YMCA just two months ago, also bogeyed the 10th and 15th holes. Nancy Lopez, the 20-year-old rookie from Roswell, N.M., who is making her LPGA debut in the Open, moved into second place at 145, one stroke ahead of defending champion JoAnne Garner. Miss Lopez, who came within four shots of winning the Open two years ago as an amateur, and Mrs. Garner each shot par 72. Jan Stephenson, who was bunched with Jane Blalock, Amy Alcott and Joyce Kazmierski in a second-place tie, two strokes behind Stacy at the beginning of the day, dropped four strokes back at 147 after a three-over 75. Cathy Mant of Ml/ Pleasant, S.C. fired a two-under 70 to match the best round of the t o u r n e y a n d j o i n e d P a t Bradley, Para Higgins, Debbie Austin and Alcott at 149. Blalock slipped to a six-over 78 and is tied at 150 with veteran 'Kathy Whitworth and Peggy Conley. Betty Lou Crocker and Michelc Walker are at 151 and the IPGA's leading money winner this season, Judy Rankin, is at 152 with Carol Mann. Rankin, who has never won the open, shot a 77 Friday. Kazmierski ballooned to an 83 and a 155 total. ?
