Why, they ask, must teams play six months to determine playoff representatives? I guess it's for the same reason that high schools like Robert E. Lee and Ross S. Sterling must pass a 14-game test to prove themselves. That's just the nature of the sport. Baseball champions have always been ones who are able to survive the long run. The same is true for basketball and football. There are no one-day tests for teams in these sports. They must prove themselves over a certain period of time, before they are allowed to continue. In stark contrast to those athletic endeavors is track and field. This, my friends, is a once-in-a- season situation. Runners and jumpers either make the grade on a particular day, or they move to the sideline and contemplate next season. Talk about pressure. While teams in baseball and football have time to recover from slumps, and then make their surge to the playoffs, the same can't be said for track and field athletes. If they happen to have a bad day. there is no recovery period. Last week's District 23-5A meet was the testing ground for boys and girls learns from the eight league schools. All of their meets in previous weeks were mere warm-ups for the main event. Obviously, Lee and Sterling prepared well. For when it came time for their final examination Friday night, there were few failures. The region meet May 2-3 at San Jacinto College Central will feature 15 individuals and six relay teams from Baytown. That's quite good, considering the other six schools will send 21 total of 24 individuals and four relays. Talk about domination. Not only did Sterling's boys and girls teams earn varsity district championships, but its freshman boys also placed first. Lee's junior varsity boys David Berkowitz By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS .As a "role player," John Barrett is thoroughly enjoying his part with the Washington Capitals these days. "It's nice to be in a situation that's positive, where everyone is looking ahead," says Barrett, a low-profile but high-intensity player for the Capitals in their NHL playoff series with the New York Rangers. Not normally accustomed to scoring goals from his defensive position, Barrett had two in Monday night's 6-3 victory that gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven Patrick Division final. Game 4 will be played tonight in Madison Square Garden, one of two Stanley Cup playoff games on tap. In the other, Montreal plays at Hartford holding a 2-1 lead in the Adams Division final. In action Tuesday night, Calgary defeated Edmonton 3-2 to take a 2-1 lead in their Smythe Division final and Toronto beat SI. Louis 5-2 to take a 2-1 advantage in the Morris Division. Just last month, Barrett was in a "depressed situation" as a member of the Detroit Red Y^ings, a team with the worst record in the league that was obviously going nowhere. But he was acquired by Washington in a trade along with G're'g' Smith that turned his career in a new direction. ' Sirice coming to the Capitals, Barrett has been lauded by General Manager David Poile for his "robust, aggressive style of'play and a lot of enthusiasm both on and off the ice." However, he waited until the Stanley Cup playoffs to score his NHL playoffs first goals for Washington. "I'm not too accustomed to scoring goals," Barrett said. "I'm happy just being a role- player. I like to pass. I don't think I'll change my game at this stage." SMYTHE DIVISION Flames 3, Oilers 2 At Calgary, Joel Otto scored the go-ahead goal at 7:32 of the third period to lead Calgary past Edmonton, the two-time Stanley Cup champion. Otto passed to Jamie Macoun and then took the puck back in front of Edmonton goaitender Grant Fuhr before scoring the game-winner. The Flames began the third period with a 2-1 lead, but lost it when Glenn Anderson's backhand shot beat rookie Calgary goalie Mike Vernon. NORRIS DIVISION Maple Leafs 5, Blues 2 At Toronto, Wendel Clark, Rick Vaive and Russ Courtnall all scored within one minute and 42 seconds late in the third period to lead the Maple Leafs over the Blues. The game was tied l-l after one period on goals by Doug Gilmour for St. Louis and Vaive for Toronto. Greg Paslawski put the Blues on top with the only goal of the second period, then Toronto's Tom Fergus tied it 2-2 with a power-play goal 40 seconds into the third period. Clark then jammed the puck behind Blues goaitender Rick Wamsley at 13:49 of the third period to give the Maple Leafs their first lead of the night. grabbed a district title, as did Lee's girls in the combined JV-freshman meet. What I will remember most from the varsity district meet are the kind words that opposing coaches had for one another. In particular, Sterling's Drew Dunlap and Lee's Gene Bosse couldn't hide their respect for the other guy in town. "Lee deserves a lot of credit," Dunlap said, only minutes after his boys wrapped up their fifth consecutive district championship. "Gene does such a great job of coaching them. He has some good athletes, and he really gets the most out of them." Although Bosse can be a man of few words, his actions often speak loud enough. It wasn't uncommon to see him shake Dunlap's hand or give a Sterling athlete an encouraging pat on the back following a particularly impressive performance in the district meet. Can you imagine football coaches Jim Stroud of Lee and Gaylard Fenley of Sterling race across the field to compliment each other on their first-half touchdowns'? Or how about Sterling's Woody Walker offering an approving nod in the direction of Lee's Jim Ledbetter when the Ganders take a lead in the closing seconds of their basketball game' 1 I guess there is just something different about the sport of track and field. Something that offers non-baseball lovers an alternative.

O'Grady is disciplined HOUSTON (AP) - Steve Novak, the lawyer for pro golfer Mac O'Grady, says his client will appeal a six-tournament suspension and $5,000 fine issued by PGA Tour Commissioner Deane Beman. Beman slapped the penalty on the outspoken O'Grady on Tuesday in response to bitter personal attacks of the commissioner by O'Grady as reported in newspaper interviews. Tuesday's action, issued from the site of this week's tour event, the Houston Open, was the stlf- fest imposed in Beman's 12 years as commissioner. CfeVCR.
