Decatur, Illinois, Tuesday, September 6, 1977 DECATUR HERALD I5 Briefly Speaking ... In Sports tr r Wm 11 m Holiis Stacy is obviously happy with 271 scoro AP Loserphot. Stacy Sets Record in Rail Golf Springfield (AP) Holiis Stacy posted a closing 69 Monday for a record-shatier-ing 72-hole total of 17-under-par 271 to win the $100,000 Rail Muscular Dystrophy Golf Classic by eight strokes over Betty Burfeindt. Stacy, 23. from Savannah, picked up a $15,000 check and a third tournament victory. She previously won the U.S. Open and the Tara Open in her home state. Her pa r-battering four rounds over the 6,135-yard, par 36-36-72 Rail Golf Course broke by two strokes the scoring record set for 72 holes by Kathy Whitworth in the Milwaukee Open in 1966. Stacy, on the tour since 1974, fired birdies on the fourth, 10th and 16th holes in her final round of the rain-delayed tournament in shooting her fourth round in the 60s. She had only one bogey in the 72 holes. That was on the 10th hole in Saturday's round. Miss Burfeindt gained one stroke on par in the final round to finish nine under for the tournament at 279. Jane Bla-lock, with a closing 69, bogeyed the 18th and wound up with a 280. Sandra Post made the big move, coming from even par at the end of the third round with a 67 to finish with 283 to tie for fourth with Laura Baugh.

Tom Hostetler Jr., the second-round leader, slipped to 32 to finish at 232 for runnerup honors. Bcb Smith, who shot a final round 74, and Dave Miller, who bad 77, finished in a tie for third at 233. Rick Locke, who led after the first round on a par 72, then soared to an 83, rebounded with 79 to finish fourth at 234. In a separate Labor Day tournament, .Bob Smith took honors for the low gross score with 74. Phil Sharkey was runnerup with 75. Forest Wikoff won low net competition with 89-2564. Three others tied for second. Al Frick shot 79-1366, Bob Bo-yer 89-2366 and Darrell Ryan 85-1966.

Casey Nips St. Louis In Final Casey Nate Middleton singled in the winning run in the ninth inning to give the Casey Truckers a 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Bombers Monday for the championship of the 22-team Amateur Softball Association Class A National Invitation tournament. John Bright went all the way for Casey, striking out six and walking one while yielding six i hits. Lenny Isles cracked a two-run homer for Casey in the fourth inning. Mark Kusterman singled in the tying run in the sixth. Middletons winning hit brought home Steve Voris, who reached on a single and advanced on a fielder's choice. Earlier, St. Louis defeated Sadorus, III., 6-5 to reach the championship game. Middleton, who stroked 12 hits in 25 at bats, was named the tournament's most valuable player. Casey's ace pitcher Denny Throneburg, who won three games on a no-hitter, a one-hitter and a three-hitter, was joined on the tournament all-tar team by Sadorus pitcher Butch Clark and St. Louis pit-. cher Ed Branoff. Jeff Wagley of Indianapolis Karma Records, Phil Sherwood of Casey and 'Clarene Wilson of Pleasant Grove, Utah, were named all-tournament catchers. Voted all-tournament infiel-ders were Speedy Cole, Indianapolis Renners first baseman; Larry Ring, Sadorus second baseman; Mike Webster, Casey third baseman; and John Marker, Sadorus shortstop. Selected all-tournament outfielders were Larry Sappington of Casey, Tom Pryor of St. Louis, and Bucky Piatt of Pleasant Grove, Utah, in addition to Casey's Middleton. Casey finished with a 78-30 record. HAVIG SIGNS WITH PACKERS Guard Dennis Havig, formerly of the Atlanta Falcons and Houston Oilers, has signed with the Green Bay Packers as a free agent. Havig, 28, a .6-foot-3, 250 pounder, is a seven-year National Football League veteran from the University of Colorado. MUNSON JOINS CHARGERS Quarterback Bill Munson, waived by Seattle after playing for the Los Angeles Rams and Detroit Lions, is joining the San Diego Chargers. The 13 - year National Football League veteran was signed a week after he became a free agent. Munson apparently replaces Clint Longley as backup to James Harris. Long-ley, whom the Chargers obtained from Dallas, has stayed out of training and apparently is being traded or waived. SHERK SIDELINED WITH KNEE INJURY Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Jerry Sherk's knee injury will keep him sidelined for up to six weeks but won't require surgery. Sherk suffered the strained ligaments in his left knee in the third quarter of the Browns' 19-14 victory over Green Bay Saturday. MULDOWNEY WINS POINTS CHAMPIONSHIP Shirley Muldowney, upset in the first round of Top Fuel eliminations on Sunday, still clinched the world points championship Monday when her nearest challenger, Frank Bradley, was beaten in the quarter-finals of the U.S. National Drag Races. Bradley, the only driver with a mathematical chance of catching .Muldowney, would have had to win here and in the final two races of the season to earn the world championship. AMATEUR WINNER WANTS PRO STATUS "I am going to turn pro," Lakeview Cross Country Improved Lakeview High School's cross country fortunes appear to be heading upward. "I have my largest squad," said Coach Steve Davis. The squad numbers nine, including two lettermen Randy West and Randy Marucco. Both are juniors. West was Lakeview's No. 1 runner last fall. He was 12th in the city meet. Marucco was the No. 2 runner. . They will be joined by seniors Dan Reynolds, Jeff Budds and Malcom Morgan, junior Mark Bodine and sophomores Mike Makowicz. Also out are two freshmen, Kurt Norvill and Gary Hartwell. Lakeview won a mere two meets last season and was fifth in the Apollo Conference meet and last in the district meet. Lakeview opens today at home against Argenta-Oreana.

"As much as I would like to stay an amateur, it's a nice way to go out. If I could afford it, I'd stay an amateur all my life," added the 23-year-old Fought, who took the lead on the sixth hole of the 36-hole final for America's top amateur golf prize and never looked back. METS GET PITCHER IN GROTE TRADE Righthanded pitcher Dan Smith has been acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers as part of the Jerry Grore deal, the New York Mets said. Smith, who was 8-2 with a 2.79 earned run average with San Antonio of the Texas League, was assigned to the Mets' Tidewater club of the International League. The Mets also received an undisclosed amount of cash and an additional player to be named later.

(AP) David Hobbs, driving his Tur-bocharged McLaren BMW 320T, won the Camel GT 100-mile race at Road Atlanta Monday, setting a course record with an average speed of 103.070 miles an hour. Wm. "Bill" Sigmon SAYS - I would like to let all my Friends and Neighbors know I'm Back in the Car Business. I'm inviting everyone to come to FEHRENBACH CHEVROLET in Decatur. Ill Let me help you buy or trade anything New or Used, Cars or Trucks. Come in and ask for "Willie". PH. 663-2253 or 877-4440 East Rutherford, N.J. (AP) He is a running back with the National Football League statistics to prove it. But Larry Csonka is not running anymore and the New York Giants fullback doesn't like the situation. Csonka played one quarter and carried the ball once for four yards in Sunday's 10-0 loss to the New York Jets. A week ago, against Buffalo, the numbers were four carries for six yards for the man who has gained 6.469 yards in his career, more than any other active runner in the National Conference. "I guess I have a long way to go," said Csonka, coming back from knee surgery. He was hurt in the 11th game last season but he insists that he has recovered totally from the injury. "My knee is healed," he said. "I believe it is even stronger now than it was before. I don't think the blow that injured me would hurt it now." But the Giants, a team in desperate need of some offense, have preferred to go agonizingly slowly with Csonka. And he seems annoyed with that arrangement. "My job is to run the football," he said. "I would have liked to play more and carry more. That might get me back to par. But they decided I would be more helpful as a blocker." Coach John McVay would say only: "Csonka is hurting. We planned to play him only one quarter and that's what we did." fibir only $155.26 a mnioinitlhu Whether you need $3,500 or $10,000 get it from the people who lend millions. Commercial Credit.
