Jaycee baseball tempo up All junior college baseball teams get back in the thick of the state race next week, with both Glendale Community and Mesa Community attempting to flag down high-flying Phoenix College. Glendale, defending national juco baseball champ, was expected to be in the thick of the race while the talent-laden HoKams of Mesa were pegged as the team to beat. Neither has shown up to form in conference play, with the Pug Marich-coached PC squad leading the pack with an 8-2 record. Glendale is third in the standings with a 6-4 mark while Mesa is fourth at 4-3-1. Yuma's Arizona Western is second at 5-3. PC swept a twin bill from Mesa and has split with both Western and the Gauchos. Glendale, which won the California Easter Tournament Thursday, owns a 19-4 record—all four setbacks in league play. In the California tourney, Glendale centerfielder Otis McCowan ripped pitchers almost at will, getting seven hits in 15 at bats while driving in four runs. The series upped the sophomore's batting average from .356 to .380, putting^ him in the team lead. His four RBIs hiked his total to 19, also leading the squad. Next week, Western and Mesa meet in a two-game series Monday and Tuesday, with Glendale and Mesa engaging in a two-game set Friday and Saturday. Phoenix entertains Eastern in a doubleheader Saturday while Cochise hosts Western in a league twin bill the same afternoon. Cochise and Eastern round out the six-team league in the standings with 3-6-1 and 1-9 records, respectively.

Mesa Community again ranks as probably the most powerful junior college contingent in the nation but Dick Fuenning's Glendale bunch is making great strides to stay close to their cross-town rivals. . . KLr CITY Sat., April 5, 1969 Sun Devils take golf title SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - Arizona State University's golfers, with Don Powers setting the pace, won the Far Western Intercollegiate tournament here yesterday.

Next were San Jose State 921, San Diego State 923, Brig- Jamaicans run at UofA OTIS McCOWAN Gets MVP Award Devil spikers meet San Jose SAN JOSE, Calif. Though host San Jose State figures to have too much overall strength for injury- riddled Arizona State, several hot individual duels should spice their track meet here today. One of the best should be the 440-yard dash, which features San Jose's Lee Evans and Arizona State's Ron Freeman. Evans holds the world record in the open 400-meters and Freeman has run the fastest 400-meter relay leg in history. In the sprints, ASU offers Jerry Bright to challenge the Spartans' fleet stable of John Carlos, Ronnie Ray Smith and Sam Davis. The two-mile shapes up as another close event. ASU's Jerry Jobski and Manuel Quintinar have done 8:52.4 and 8:53.1 respectively this year and the Spartans' Ray Gomez has clocked 8:57.6. TUCSON — Two members of the Jamaican Olympic track team and now members of the Nebraska track team will be the top performers in the quadrangular meet to be held in Arizona Stadium tonight. The meet will have teams from Nebraska, Iowa, California State at Long Beach and Arizona competing. Field events begin at 7:30 p.m. and running events at 8. The Olympians are Clifton Forbes, who will run the 100 and 220-yard dashes, and with the 440-yard and mile relay teams and Lennox Burgher in the triple jump. Forbes has an all-time best of :45.7 in the 400 meter dash, and placed second in the 220 in the Big-8 meet last year and fifth in the 100 yard dash. Burgher is the NCAA champion in the triple jump with a best of 53-l J /4. Arizona's best hopes are in the high jump with Lorenzo Allen and John Wedel, both with bests of 7-0; Roy Waddell in the javelin with a best of 235-3 and Tim Kearin in the shot with a best of the year at 56-5.
