6— Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah, Calif. Thursday, July 11, 1974 Soroptlmlsf swim win GARY PLAYER'S GOLF CLASS: Choose the right clujfr ins really came through! By GLENN EJRICKSON In retrospect, the Ukiah Dolphins II narrow and exciting come-from-behind victory in the 1974 Ukiah Soroptimist Gub Invitational Championships was no accident and no fluke. Coach George Sutton's youngsters in Division II amassed points to touchout strong Eureka Redwood Swim Gub for the team title. The Dolphins III, the youngsters helped now by assistant coaches, Cathy Davis and Rick Geland, two former Dolphin stars, scored 33 points against stronger swimmers, and also came through magnificently both Saturday and Sunday. We have just received a final "print out," actually a hand- typed, "human-computerized summary of the top six place winners and their times in each of the, 72 swimming events held over two fantastic days of aquatic action. Making allowances . for our own mathematical meanderings, we calculate that there were "A" times swum for 182 youngsters; 10 swam "AA" times and 18 new Ukiah pool records were shattered —that's a new pool record made in one out of every four events, not exactly a snail's pace. Every Point Countes We also figure that the Dolphins II and III combined for 20 first places, eight seconds, nine thirds,' seven fourths, and 12 fifths and 12 sixths in individual races. And don't knock those fifth and sixth places worked for so hard. If just two of those sixths had gone elsewhere and Redwoods had not goofed a freestyle relay with an early start off the blocks, the Dolphins II would not have been able to edge Redwoods for the title. If 18 of those fifth and 6th place points —half of the 36 fifth and sixth points — had not been won the Dolphins two would not have won. In relays the Dolphins came through tremendously winning four freestyle and two medley relays; taking second in five medley and three freestyle foursome races; picking up two medley thirds and a freestyle third — and for good and winning measure picking off two freestyle fourths and a medley fifth by Division II swimmers. And Division III youngsters helped by taking away four relay fifths and two relay sixths which might have gone to rival Redwoods or the six other top outstanding teams entered! It was a total Dolphins team effort! Swim Here Tonite Incidentally, those hungry and now more confident Dolphins III youngsters are diving back into the pool at Ukiah Swim Center tonight at 6:00 p.m. or 6:30 to swim against the Santa Rosa Swim Gub's strong team, which was due to host Ukiah but couldn't find a pool so are holding their meet in our pool! There were more "A" times madeinbreaststrokeevents, 43, than in any other stroke. There were 41 in freestyle, 37 in backstroke; 33 in individual medley, and 28 in butterfly individual races. We didn't calculate any relay "A" or "AA" times but there were six relay pool records. Four of the 10 "AA" times were in breaststroke; two-each in "Fly" and freestyle, and an "AA" time swum once each in back and IM. Three pool records each were set in IM and breaststroke; two-each in free, "Fly" and free relays! Following are the Dolphins' place winners among the. top six swimmers in each of the 72 events after hundreds of sizzling heat race timings.

AFTER THOUGHTS — In a meet as close as the Soroptimist Championships every naked point counts; thus though a boy or girl may not take first or set a , record, and even if he or she swims an "A" time and doesn't even place in the top six, that girl or boy may make contributions in relays; or, more importantly, through con- Sacramentobound Colt All-Stars open Satu Giants win, Dodger ace loses MONTREAL (UPI) — San Francisco pitcher Jim Ban- gave up 10 hits but still managed to come away with a win when errors by Steve Renko and Barry Foote enabled the Giants to score four runs and defeat Montreal Expos, 4-2, Wednesday night. The Giants scored three runs in the third inning with the aid of a wild throw by Renko and they added their final run in the sixth when Foote dropped a throw to the plate, enabling Gary Matthews to score. Dave came through in two clutch situations Wednesday night, driving in the tying runs in the seventh and then , the winning run with a single off relief ace Mike Marshall in the ninth to give the Phillies a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Phillies picked up a full game on the Cardinals, who lost their' fifth straight decision. . The loss was the fourth against 11 wins for Marshall and marked the second straight time he was hit hard. Lopes and Joe Ferguson homered for the Dodgers while Del Unser connected for the Phillies. Cash is now batting .320. The Houston Astros defeated the Cardinals, 3-2, the Sah Diego Padres whipped the New York Mets, 8-1, the San Francisco Giants beat the Montreal Expos, 4-2, the Atlanta Braves downed the Pittsburgh Pireates, 10-5, and the Chicago Cubs drubbed the Cincinnati Reds, 11-3, in other NL games. tinuing improvment in practice, thus pushing his own time and those of a teammate down. Several Dolphins moved up into a higher age group recently, partially accounting for a derth of points in 11-12 girls, 8-under girls and 9-10 girls and in a few boys' events as well. All Contribute Without the teamwork and "gutsy'' efforts of many Dolphins II and particularly Dolphins III swimmers who didn't place in individual events, though sometimes knocking 26 seconds from their previous best time, the Dolphins would have been "dead" in the relays where points count double. Thus medley and-or freestyle relayists like Jean Carpenter, Stephanie Brown, Marcene Leve, Shannon Ward, Barbara Sutton, Ann de la Pena, Jan Carpenter, Carrie Artihan, Peggy Sutton, Mary King, Mark Drury, Stephen Brown, Steve Weiss, Sheila Gregg, Susan Aldine, Amy Butcher, Sue, Zimmerman, Kevin Nelson, Rollin Stephens, Jeff Waring, Tara Nyborg, Laurette Wright, Cheryl Ray, Leslie Gregg, Denise Pennington, Harbor Williams, Vic Morris, Scotty Miller, Mark Crook, Tonya Engel, Tonya Morton, Kenzie Campbell each contributed fully to the Dolphins II and III successes and points. As we said, there were others, also, who bettered their times by up to half a minute or so, so they, too, contributed a full share of thrills in a truly fantastic Soroptimist meet — the best ever, and the closest in 18 years! Crowds are surprising WFL off to a good start By United Press International The World Football League started off with a bang at the box office in its debut Wednesday night, with over 200,000 fans announcetekas attending the maiden bill of five games, for an average of more than 40,000 per game. Philadelphia led the league with 55,534, and only the Florida Blazers played before an announced crowd of less than 30,000 paying customers; as the WFL proved to the skeptics that they have fan support as well as players. , The upstart league served notice on the National Football League that they are for real, and perhaps added another inducement for the NFL owners and players to settle their 11- day-old strike, which has met with underwhelming fan reac-„ tion! The latest entry in the seemingly never-ending upward spiral of professional sports expansion debuts tonight on national television with the New York Stars facing the Jacksonville Sharks in Florida. A motley group of ex-NFL players, one-time Canadian Football League stars, former minor leaguers, rookies and free agents were the heroes of the WFL's opening card. In Philadelphia, King Corcoran threw two touchdowrf passes and running back John Land rushed for two tallies to spark the Philadelphia Bell to a 33-8 victory over the Portland , Storm before a hometown crowd at John F. Kennedy Stadium, site of the annual Army-Navy game. Corcoran, a former Atlantic Coast League star, completed 21 of 38 passes for 227 yards. He hit Alan Thompson on a 14-yard scoring aerial early in the second quarter, and a few minutes later he hit Cecil Bowens with a 25-yard touchdown toss, giving the Bell a 25-0 halftime lead. Deep in pigskin territory, hometown rookie Steve Williams ran back a pass' interception 50 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to spark the Birmingham Americans to an 11-7 victory over the Southern California Sun. A Legion Field crowd announced at 3,231 watched the match between the two teams, considered among the strongest in the new 12-team league. Ex-NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner George Mira passed to former NFL star running back Paul Robinson for the "action point" to give Birmingham an 8-7 lead and Earl Sark kicked a 26-yard field goal with 1:55 remaining after Southern California failed on a fourth-and-one gamble at its 14- yard line. ~ One of the new WFL rules, which the NFL borrowed heavily from in revising their own rules for this season, makes touchdowns worth 7 points, with points-after-touch­ down worth one point by running or passing. Unlike any other football league, from high school to the NFL, conversions may be not be kicked in the WFL. Jim Strong ran for a touchdown and grabbed an "action play" pass to give the Florida Blazers an 8-7 victory, over the Honolulu Hawaiians in their World Football League debut. But with 2:44 remaining in the third quarter, blitzing tackle Billy Hobbs knocked the yellow football out of the , hands of Hawaii's No. 2 quarterback, Bill Donckers. Tackle Paul Vellano covered it for the Blazers on the 10. Channel 2 has WFL tilt tonite Channel 2, KTVU, Oakland, will carry the first live televised game of the new World Football League to be seen tonight at 6 as the New York Stars challenge the Jacksonville Sharks in Florida. Fans will get a chance to see a seven point touchdown or two; there will be no points after touchdown by kicking, but there will be efforts to pass or run for an extra point. Runbacks will be encouraged by 30-yard-line kickoffs and there will be no fair catches as World Football endeavors to make a hit with fans by a combination of Canadian, NFL and their own rules and innovations. Reliable Pony playoff opener The chips were down Wednesday night, as they will be for sure tonight' at 8 in Anton Stadium, and Chet Crabtree's Reliable Mill Supply downed Fitzgerald's Athletic Supply, 168, in the first of a three-game Pony League championship . series, avenging their only two regular season losses, 5-3 and IT 0, to Fitzgerald's. A third game will be played Friday night, if necessary; and. there will be a Pony East-West . Ukiah doubleheader Saturday starting at 6 p.m. The 15-16-year-old Ukiah- Willits-Lakeport Area Colt League All-Stars are scheduled to open play in District All-Star competition Saturday at 6 p.m. in West Sacramento.

Fort Bragg disposed of host Willits-Laytonville in the Area tourney opener Wednesday night, 6-0, on the two-hit pitching of Russ Dubay, who wasn't fast but was mighty effective, fanning five, walking one. Fort Bragg got only five hits, two by first-baseman Eric Maki. Mendocino Coast got some superlative defensive play by Sam Scoggins, while Willits had five errors. Joining Carr when the South Ukiah Seniors, nine of the total squad veterans of the South Ukiah Little League All-Stars trip to the San.
