6-DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEVVfrHERALD, Tuesday. April 20. 1971 | i , i i texxxfxxt^^ i Idea ts, Mustangs Rated Even Today j By CARL GUYS Big Friendly Fry A glance at the records registered by the two Queen City high school Glass AAA baseball teams rate the Del Rio Wildcats and the San Felipe Mustangs "fairly even." The two teams meet for the first time in District 14-AAA West Zone action on Wildcat Field at 4:15 this afternoon. The host Wildcats are 0-2 and the visiting Mustangs are 1-1. Del Rio dropped a one-run 5-4 decision to Kerrville Tivy and San Felipe fell 2-0 to the Antlers, the only common opponent faced by the two schools this season. Against Uvalde the Herd hammered out its lone zone win 8-5 and the Wildcats fell 5-2 to Crystal City. This afternoon's .league meeting will feature the ? itching of Ceasar Sotelo for Del Rio and Wayne Benson ar San Felipe. Both are owners of lively fast balls and pretty good curves. Sotelo may have an edge in the control department but Benson appears to. have a corner in over-powering the batters. Behind the plate the Herd has experienced David Moncibais and the Cats have Mario Hernandez who recently moved in to replace Gary Rodriguez. The latter went to third base, the position that Tony Lomas plays for the Mustang. Lomas is also a 'convert, coming rrom an outfield post. At shortstop San Felipe has talented two-way Gene Flores, the sensational sophomore who may be the best glove and stick youngster in the area. Del Rio has Keith Wilcox, a senior who has the versatility of playing several positions well but who is in a current batting slump. The second base slot for the host Wildcats is in the able hands of Mike McDonald, a serious, hardworking youngster who earned the spot after two years or understudy work. For the Herd at the keystone sack there's Jerry Fay, a fine Slovenian but weak with his throws and just so-so with the stick. 1 J On first base the Wildcats will have the extreme edge today with pitcher-intielder Jerry Lee. Lee is a lopg ball threat and has home runs in the team's two district tilts. His Mustang counterpart, Glenn .Benson is a good stretching first baseman but lacks confidence at the plate. In the outer garden both teams are questionable since Del Rio Coach Bob Denison and San Felipe Coach Red Soto are' making changes for today's contest. Only veteran Rob Henderson, a hitting threat for the Cats and the Herd's Leon Best are assured of starting roles at press time. The balance of Del Rio's outer defense will .come from a quartet that includes Fred Stevens. George Flynn, Bobby Garza and Felix Garcia. At San Felipe, the left and center field slots will have "new" faces in 1970 veterans Frank Guzman and Joe "Lefty" Garcla;.bqth in their first 197,1 starting roles. ; Gates to Compete in Regional Wildcat Linksman Going to Corpus NHL Results :%:S : #^ Scoreboard * IMITATOR—Using a Threadfin Shad lure to imitate the natural and abundant food shad in Amistad Lake Fred Galbiati of Arlington produced 15 black bass this morning.

Cy Cates, Del Rio High School's lone survivor of the 1971 golf crew, will compete in the Regional golf tournament Friday and Saturday on the Pharoah Country Club course in Corpus Christi. Cates won the right to play in the Regional classic by taking the medalist honors at KerrvUle two weeks ago. Cates will compete with as few as 41 and possible with as many as 47 qualified Class AAA high school golfers. The Regional field is composed of the first and second - place finishers of each of the four districts, 13 through 16 and the first and second medalists. In one case a Kerrville Tivy district competitor, playing apart from either , of the Antlers' two teams, won the runnerup spot behind Cates to become eligible for the Regional meet. This unique occurance gives Kerrville 11 chances at medalist honors at Pharoah Friday and Saturday since the Tivy No. 1 and No. 2 teams finished in the title and runnerup spots at the district meet. Cates, the lone Queen City courser, will be accompanied by golf coach Joe Brown. The Cat coach ...told ... the News-Herald this "niorning that 1 "Cates was shooting ' well ' hi practice rounds this week ana has been blessed with a wind benefit." Brown explained that the Corpus courses are "almost always windblown to make playing conditions quite different from normal weather conditions found in Del Rio." Brown added, "The recent Influx of blustery winds here has helped Cates adjust his game. In fact we are playing at the Laughlin course to expose his game to additonal wind. At the base there are less trees to block the wind and the course is set up on a flat top quite similar to what we expect down at the coast." Brown also said that he and his medalist Cates will be making their first appearance Diane Koch Awaits Region BRACKETTVILLE-Diane Koch will represent the Brackett High School in the Regional tennis tournament Thursday in Brenham. The Tigerette netter won the District 32-B title last Friday at the Southwest Texas Junior College courts defeating her Leakey finalist 6-3 and 6-0. The Brackett senior will begin play at 3' p.m. in Brenham with an opponent to be selected by the tourney committee. at the Pharoah CC course although Del Rio golf teams have played orr other Corpus Christi golf courses many times. "All we know is where it is. We feel, however, it is sure to have the same windy character as the rest of the Gulf Coast courses. That's why we appreciate the wind coming up here the past week." Brown and Cates will leave the Queen City on Thursday and Cates will play 18 holes on Friday and another 18 on Saturday. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Monday's Results No games scheduled.

The g members will eat 'era. . :•:• Roy Musquiz, tourney chairman, told me that the :* organization will have a fish fry on Sunday. Musquiz g also forwards the club's appreciation to White Auto 8 Store, J and J Tackle Co.,.Mike's Tackle Shop and g Church's Fried Chicken stand for their prize awardance &x&®^&wte^^ Sunday. The recently organized bass club will also initiate a big bass of the month project for members beginning with May. Registration for this phase is set until April 30 at Calderon Automotive Supply headquarters. Test Today Tom Porter, the entertaining angler-Zebco rep, is testing today on Amistad Lake. Porter, who can spin colorful outdoor tales about hunting and fishing with the best of 'em is taking Jim Cooper and Joe Morgan out on Big Friendly to try out some new Zebco bass gear. Porter is a bug on conversation but will gear his talks to conservation on the drop of a fisherman's cap. He .has addressed many organizations on the subject of pollution and littering and he has a firm stand against both of these nasty habits. He also said that friend Jim Thomas opened his new TV Panhandle Outdoor News show on March 29. Glad to hear it and hope Thomas comes to Big Friendly one of these days to film the purtiest body of water on either side of the Mississippi. Let's keep Amistad Lake that way by packing off our litter. Sure would hate to see the day come when Big Friendly's referral changed from "Pretty" to "Putrid." Leave us^all join the Pollution Revolution to keep Amistad as pretty as the Lord intended it to be. Use it but don't abuse it and join the Anti-pollution evolution in your own quiet way of picking up after the careless ones . . . your kids and their's will appreciate it in years to come. Sportsmen's Club Sgt. R.R. Harrison announced a heavy black bass tourney for Laughlin Sportsmen's Club members for April 25. Registration is deadlined 9 p.m., April 24. The winner^will receive an ice chest and five dollars; second prize is a smaller ice chest but a similar five-dollar bill; and, third prize is a Cool Keg combo seat and cooker plus a fin. Harrison pointed out that a "booby" prize for the lightest fish (in weight) of 14 inches or over will be a surprise. For this tourney rod and reel with live or phoney bait is allpwable. Dependents of the members can enter the tourney for half of the $2 member entry fee. Friday Takeoff The Del Rio thinclads, trimmed down to six youngsters, will leave the Queen City Friday morning for Carpus Christi and the Region IV track and field meet, at Buccaneer Stadium. Head Coach Walter Levermann told me this morning that the sprint relay team is "building up its head of steam" for the regional run. He said the workouts have been good and the handoffs are "pretty smooth." With Tommy Ratliff and Gerald Land running the curves and Albert Garcia and Dennis Rowland running the straights the sprint relay unit has to keep sharp but smooth. The alternate, Russell Murgatroyd gets in daily practice at all four positions to keep him on "Systems go" in case any one of the foursome has to be scratched. We asked Levermann about the class of competition expected at the Pirate Plant and he answered, "Well, I don't rightly know of any exceptionally fast times run by any of the other three district sprinters we'll meet at Corpus. However, all of the 13, 15 and 16 district contestants are regionally qualified just like we are for District 14 so we expect stiff competition in all of the events." Levermann, without mentioning any individuals, pointed out that "Sinton always produces good dashmen." Del Rip's sprinters will face runners from the three other districts which cover areas from Austin, Robstown and the Rio Grande Valley. Wildcat thinclads will find themselves treading on familiar ground since Buccaneer Stadium has the same Red Dog Cinder surface that Wildcat Stadium has. The Regionals open on Friday with the field events and some qualifying heats for the huge field. Del Rio's long jumper John Spears will compete Friday night while the sprint relay team and Rowland run their three events Saturday night.
