flOA-DEL RIQ (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD. Sunday, April 18. 1971 Wildcat Sprinters Three Events SAN ANTONIO-A quartet of Southwest Texas sprinters swept into San Antonio like the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and rode off with first place wins in the only three events it was permitted to participate. The four fleet dashmen were Del Rio High School's regionally qualified Dennis Rowland, Albert Garcia, Gerald Land and Tommy Ratliff who collaborated to win the 440-yard sprint relay event in 42.8 on a strip left soggy and slow by Friday's rainfall. In posting victory the dazzling Del Rioans beat out AAAA teams which had come to Alamo Stadium with such fear-inspiring records as 42.1, 42.5 and 42.5 as their calling cards. One of the visiting Del Rioans, Kowland, who is billed as The Queen City Comet dashed his way to twin wins in the 100-yard and 220-yard events to help his team pile up 50 points in just three of the feature events. Rowland skimmed over the soggy turf to a 9.7 century drawing teammate Gerald Land with him for a second place mark of 9.8. The Comet lived up to his track nome de plume by taking VIES FOR TITLE TODAY Poole Seeks to Take Trophy Home for Good If ever the third time is to be the charm, O.B. "Bob" Poole, Del Rio Independent School District superintendent and one of the area's finest golfers, hopes it will happen Sunday. Poole, who has two legitimate notches on his golfing belt as Club Champ, will seek permanent possession of the San Felipe Country Club's "Rotating Trophy* when he faces another formidable golfing veteran, Red Bradley, at 1 p.m. Richie Brotherton, .consolation semi-finalist who was forced to forfeit his Saturday match with Carlos Garcia because of a shearing session on his ranch, told the Saturday , night "both Poole and Bradley News-Herald that are extra fine golfers with smooth, professional-type swings." : The sheep rancher from Comstock added that "I feel that Poole and Bradley will go right down to the final hole Sunday afternoon in their championship match. Both of them are seasoned players and the pressure of playing for the title should have little or no effect on either of them." Poole, who once entertained thoughts of joining the PGA tour, has his name inscribed twice on the coveted rotating trophy. Permanent possession Eagle Pass Raps Memorial, 4-2 SAN ANTONIO-The Eagle Pass Eagles, led by Ronnie Acosta and Jaime Chahin, eased into a second place tie in District 32-AAAA baseball Saturday after halting the Memorial Minutemen at Kennedy Field 4-2. Acosta, the Eagles hard-hitting left fielder, had a perfect four-for-four at the plate and Chahin, the Border Bandit stole pitching honors with a seven inning relief stint that bristled with a lone Memorial hit and no earned runs. : save Chahin contest. for next Friday's becomes possible when a player wins it three times. Garcia, who took the forfeit from Brotherton, meets Hiram Johnson who also was the beneficiary of a forfeit when Eagle Pass hotelman Milton Ricks found he could not keep his Saturday date. Flight Consolation: In the First Flight championship Noble Taylor meets Jimmy Sellers, nephew of SFCC professional and in the First Flight consolation Bob Virgil Cauthorn plays Vernon Call. In the Second Flight championship John Hunnicutt meets Louy Younts and in the Second Flight consolation Lyster Brumley meets Raymond Morgan. Brotherton also stated that "despite the hail storm the course was in good shape." He said Professional Jack Sellers and the ground crew "worked feverishly" to get the hail dents leveled out for Saturday's play and "have the course in fine state for Sunday's finals." BUCCANEER BOUND-Det Rio High School's sensational sprint relay team of Tommy Ratliff, Albert Garcia, Gerald Land and Dennis Rowland prepped for the Region IV meet at Buccaneer Stadium, Corpus Christi, with a winning effort Saturday in the San Antonio "intersecttonal" meet at Alamo Stadium. Competing with AAAA schools the Wildcat unit won the 440-yard relay event in 42.8 over a soggy track slowed by Friday's rain. Rowland added honors to the Queen City crew of four by winning both the 100 and 220 yard dashes at San Antonio. (News-Herald Photo} Rams Host Piedras Negras Sunday The independent Del Rio Rams will host the Club Parrita baseball team of Piedras Negras Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. in Roosevelt Park for a single game. Pablo Rodriguez, Ram manager, told the News-Herald Saturday night that he will start ex-semi-pro, current LAFB GI Kenny Hough on the mound with Manny Mellodes Guajardo as the backup pitcher. The Rams will have the sevices of Ranger Junior' Collegians Freddie Mireles behind the plate and Roddy Felan in right field.

Jesse Suarez at the 220-yard heat in 22.5 while Land wound up fourth in 22.9. Del Rio's other competitor was long jumper John Spears who leaped 19' 9" for seventh place despite an ailing foot. Del Rio, the sole Class AAA team at Alamo Stadium for the "intersectional" meet sponsored by the San Antonio Independent School District for regional qualifiers, also took third place in the team results behind winner Sam Houston of San Antonio and runnerup Seguin. The Alamo City school totaled 80 points to 77 for Seguin. Athletes From the three first place finishers competed with contestants from San Antonio's Class AAAA schools and with 4-A regional-bound competitors from New Braunfels, Laredo Martin, Laredo Nixon and Pleasantpn. Most of the same cast in the Alamo Stadium "intersectional" meet will be back in action next weekend at Corpus Christi for the Region IV meet, where they will be joined by top cindermen from the Austin, Coastal and Valley areas to determine who will go to the state meet at the University of Texas Memorial Stadium May 7-8. Shotgun Albarado Scores Decision G . i Chahin got out of a bases loaded jam in the Memorial half of the fourth inning when he came on the pitching scene in relief of starter Robert Krezdorn. The latter went three shutout innings before running into control trouble and with the added plague of a couple of Eagle errors the Memorials loaded the bases with none out in the bottom of the fourth. Chahin got the call and answered by allowing one of Krezdorn's free-loaders to come home, then went on to give up the second unearned run in the top of the seventh when the host Minutemen tied the count at 2-2. In the extra innings Chahin was in control and the Minutemen were looking for added life as he shut them out three extra frames in a row. Eagle receiver Mario Trevino joined Chahin as one of the batting heroes with two hits good for a pair of rbi's as the relief hurler also drove in a run with a single. But it was Acosta's fourth hit in as many times at bat in the top of the tenth that put the Eagle Pass brood in scoring position. Roberto Manzo tripled Acosta home and Trevino in turn got his second single and second rbi. The victory knocked Memorial out of first place in the district race and tied them at 6-2 with Saturday's heroes ffom the border city of Eagle Pass. Eagle Pass booked four runs on eight hits and committed two Dobbles. Memorial collected two runs on four hits and made a lone miscue. '• Eagle Pass will host Laredo Martin in 32-AAAA baseball business Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Fort Duncan Park. Eagle Coach Polo Moncada may very well come back with Krezdorn against Martin and Special to the News-Herald SAN ANTONIO-Sweet- •unching Oscar Albarado, ~oney Capital welterweight from nearby Uvalde, pounded out a 10-round unanimous decision over high-regarded Franke Lewis at the San Antonio Municipal Auditorium Friday night. Albarado, known as "Shotgun" because of his double-barreled attack, staggered his cat-like opponent in the ninth round but failed to put Lewis down for the count. The Honey Capital clouter got off to a slow start as Lewis, quick as a cat, won the first three rounds. Albarado began to pick up steam during th<> middle stanzas after a thin round cut over his left ey closed. 'The Uvalde weltc* picked up speed to win the final three stanzas. Judges Mel Stein had Albarado ahead 97-95, Lou Johnson had it all even at 97-97 while referee Royal Valle voted for Shotgun 96-95. Albarado who has offers to move and train in California is currently being promoted by Uvalde's Enrique Vasquez, Honey Capital restaurantuer. Vasquez is in the process of promoting first class training facilities for his fighter and the stable of youngsters who work in Albarado's boxing club at Uvalde. The UvaM* 1 w«ltr'r,vcight is gain! . • . .:rity in ; i-hts present champ and Percy Pugh, who is also on Albarado's fight plan, has beaten Baccus twice. Another formidable fighter in Shotgun's future is Adolph Pruitt, a former junior welter who has moved up to the welterweight class and who owns a kayo over Pugh. Albarado has trained alternately in San Antonio and Mexico City; although he lives and owns a business in the Honey Capital. Press releases from Uvaide cite the lack of facilities regarding first rate sparring partners and all necessary gym equipment but hint of a municiple backing which could alter the situation.
