Weekend Speedboat Racers Like Thrill of Competition Gq [jssbu Rf 9 i ste r -Mo i I, Ggjejbiirg, If I, ' Monday, June 4 t 1 9J§ 19 By LARRY ANDERSON (Stall Writer) Hbe speedboat racers who gaiMiercd at Oak Run Sunday afternoon came seeking competition, and they were willing to sacrifice to find it. Approximately 60 boats, a combination of hydroplanes and runabouts, participated in the races on the lake at Oak Run, The event was sponsored by the Hawkeye Stock Outboard Association, an affiliate o<£ the Gophi American Power Boat Association. The two types of boats In the event were different construction-wise but had speed as a common characteristic. Hydroplanes are smiaM, flat-appearing boats which run on foils, while runabouts have a more conventional "V" bottom. At full speed, only the back two feet of the bottom of the boats touch the water to give the appearance of floating on air. Horsepower capability divides the boats into four classifications: Class A for V/2 hp., B for 20 hp., C for 30 hp. and D for 40 hp. Sluggish at the start, once the boats pick up speed they skim across the water with a hlghr pitched hum. Roostertails, water sprayed into the air by the engine, trail the boats. The drivers, who absorb the shock of the boats hitting the water, lean forward and inward in turns in order to stay upright. The racers — young and old and of both sexes — were will- iers Edge Southern 7-6 In NCAA District Playoffs By GREG GORDON MINNEAPOLIS (UPI)- Minnesota Baseball Coach Dick Siebert figured Dennis Allar was "out by 10 feet." But Allar wasn't about to give up so easy in the 14th in ning of the District 4 NCAA playoffs in Carbondale, 111., Sunday. He barreled into Sotuhern Illinois catcher Larry Calufetti, jarring the ball loose in a wild pileup at the plate. Gopher pitcher Allar did a cartwheel over Calufetti and the plate, then dived back and tagged it to give the Gophers a 7-6 victory over the nation's No. 4- ranked team. Big Teh champion Minnesota Moorehead In Bass Fishing Tourney Win KENTUCKY LAKE, KY. (UPI) — Charles Moorehead, Paducah, Ky., Sunday beat out Joe Verbeck of Belleville, 111., to win' the' 1973 $10,000 Kentucky Lake Invitational bass fishing tournament. Moorehead swept the Bass Caster's Association sponsored event using a Big B plug and a Tom Mann blue worm. His 34 pounds of fish taken in the two-day tournament beat out a stringer of 33 pounds 1 ounce brought in by Verbeck. In addition to second place, Verbeck also won the tournaments Big Bass award with a 6-pound 12-ounce lunker. Jim Crowell, Lexington, Ky., was third with 30 pounds 10 ounces, and Bill Cretsinger, of Marion, Ind., took fourth place with 27 pounds 15 ounces. UTUS RENEW YOUR SHAVER SHAVER REPAIR SERVICE ROSS Shaver & Typewrite! Ph. 343-7917 112 E. MAIN ST. will meet Oklahoma Friday night in the first round of the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Allar described the play that gave them that chance from his campus apartment later Sunday night. "I was on third base and Bruce Nordquist was on second after he doubled," he said. "There was one out, and we were instructed by Coach Siebert to try and score from third with less than two 'outs. "Joe Comer hit a hard ground ball to the shortstop (Stan Mann), and he made a good throw home on it. The catcher had the ball about three feet in front of the p|ate, and he was on his knees blocking the plate. "I hit him in the head with my knee. There was blood. I don't know if I hurt him, and really, I didn't bother to ask. v. Sixth Graders Compete In Track Events Six records were broken in the third annual Lincoln Middle School sports festival Thursday. Sixth grade boys and girls competed in the meet. Individual records were set by Terri McWilliams, Greg Schluter (two records), Bruce Strohmaier and Tom Southwell. The 600-yard baton relay team of Jenny Doores, Peggy Miller, Schluter and Don Simmons also set a new record.

All I remember is that I did a cartwheel in the air." Siebert said it appeared from the dugout that Allar was "out probably by 10 feet." "Evidently, Altar's knee hit the catcher's glove and jarred the ball loose," Seiebert said. "He landed six feet behind the plate. We were all afraid Allar was knocked out. Everybody was yelling, 'Tag the plate Tag the plate.'" Allar said he "may have been stunned," but he said he noticed quickly that Calufetti had dropped the ball. A&W, Club 19 Winners In Babe Ruth There were two Babe Ruth games played at H. T. Custer Park Sunday night with A&W defeating Dom's 5-1 in the opener and Club 19 slipping by Hertenstein 2-1 in the nightcap. Wayne Weedwian was winning pitcher in the first game, and Dave Aldrich took the loss A&W got eight base hits in 24 trips to the p 1 a t e as Bill Camper, Weedman and Jay Stone contributed ifcwo hits apiece. Dom's managed only two hits in 21 times at bat. Club 19 scored the go-ahead run in the top of the fourth inning and held it for the win in the other game of the night. Two hits each by Dave Me Kie and Bruce Seiler accounted for four of Club 19's six hits in 25 at bats, while Hertenstein knocked out three hits in 23 trips to the plate. Club 19's Scott Kimble was credited with the victory as Seiler recorded a save. Loser Dom's A&W ibi h B. Camper 3 2 2 Stevens 3 0 0 Weedman 2 12 J. Stone 3 12 T.

T £N HIGH iTR AlQn 'r 6OUII00 Ing to spend their weekend driving themselves and their families several hundred miles for an afternoon on the water with these machines. And it is every weekend during the summer season. But it is the desire for competition that keeps the drivers on the road each weekend. Jim McCarty, assistant to driver Peter Mersberger, perhaps explained it best by saying, "It's not a money race; it's just for the sport." Money certainly isn't a motive as prize money is small. "If you win every race every weekend, you don't pay all your expenses," remarked one pit crew member. Bach driver, of course, has a different story. Mersberger, row living in Davenport, is a case in point with a background in a different kind of racing. I used to race grand prix cars for a living, but a friend got me started in hydros," ex- 1 "j pliains Mersberger. Mersberger was rookie of the year in Wisconsin hydro racing last year. He was ranked ninth nationally in "D" hydro class. Unlike Mersberger, who has been racing for only two years, Phil Howard is considered a "pro." Howard, who lived in Galesburg as a child, has been racing 16 years and has went to the national championships at DePew the last eight years. When asked why he stayed in racing for so many years, he replied simply, "It's fun to compete." Al Becherini,' 24-year old from Waukegan, agreed with Howard. Once you get started it's hard to stop- because it's fun," he said. Another racer, Gary Anderson from Hampton, was introduced to the sport by his father, and he has stayed with it. The course for the race was a % mile oval. Although the usual size is VA miles, the shorter course allows for closer bunching and therefore better races, according to refereee and driver Joe Schultz. Only older outboard motors are used on the boats. These older models have shorter shafts allowing the boats to Me more even in the water. Speed propellers are used to provide power for the boats and are especially important. Propellers may cost 'as much as $200, while .the larger size boats may reach $1000. Most of the divisions run on straight gas. However, "B" class burns alcohol with castor oil miked in for lubrication. These machines can reach speeds of 85 miles per hour. The racing season opened at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last weekend, and the next race is at Sabula, Iowa, this weekend. You can bet the Hawkeye Association and 0thisrs will be there for their weekend sport. Except, that is, for Howard, who is travelling all the way to Hot Springs, Ark. for his race.)
