More Sports THE DAILY GLOBE, Ironwood. Ml — Saturday, June 27, 1998 Page 10 Innes succeeds her coach at MTU helm HOUGHTON — Darla Innes feels she has the overall basketball background to successfully succeed Kevin Borseth at the helm of the Michigan Tech women's basketball program. Of course, what makes the transition from an assistant coach at Nebraska-Omaha, a member of the tough North Central Conference, a fairly smooth one ia the fact that Innes attended Michigan Tech and played basketball for Borseth for five years. She was red-shirted six games into her frosh season due to a stress fracture in her left tibia. "Having attended the school, I am familiar with the college, the community and the faculty," she said. "In addition, I know a little about the conference (Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic At Wimbledon Ron Trethewey ' Globe Correspondent Conference) because we played some of those teams'when-I was -there: We were in the conference. "Now, getting to play for Kevin was moat important. Having played for him, I know what it takes in all facets of the game in order to win," she added. "It's a great opportunity for me to get to succeed him. Kevin has done a tremendous job improving, the program and I have a ton of respect for leading the program in the right direction." According to Innes, a Saxon native, she'll take in to the program a philosophy shaped by what's she's learned from three coaches — Hurley High School coach Harold Torro, Bessemer, native Borseth, and Sherri Mankenberg, who she coached under at'Ne- braska-Omnha. "1 will definitely use some of Kevin's defensive system," she said. "He was a great defensive coach: We will play an intense man-to-man pressure defense similar to Kevin's. A lot of our offense will be created off the defensive end. "Mr. Torro had a tremendous influence on me,7 she said, "Tie taught me about life and stressed the importance of team cohesiveness and respect for each other." In her two seasons under Meeken berg, who has spent 22 years DARLA INNES at the school, Innes also has picked up a few things. The past two years, she haa also coached in what ia the tougheat basketball conference, the North Central. "In aix of the last seven years, one of the teams from our confer. ence has won the NCAA Division II national title, but it's been among only three schools, North Dakota, North Dakota State and South Dakota. We've got some great teams here.." Innes feels Borseth has left the cupboard almost full for her. "He lost only one senior from a team that made it to the Sweet 16 this past year," she said. One of those players is Ewen- Trout Creek's Allison Bailey. "I've never seen her play a college game, but I've seen her play at camps and in Gogebic (Com- munity College's) Last Chance Tourney. Shea' a talented ball player." In recruiting, Innes said she will look close to home First when it comes to recruiting, "With the location of MTU, we definitely will took at the U.P. hard," she said, "and then we will go to Wisconsin and the rest of Michigan." Recently, her folks, Mr. and Mrs. Robert- Innes, of Saxon, moved to Cold Springs, Minn.", to •bo noar her sister, Tammie, and son-in-law Colin Botten, leaving them a long drive to Houghton, but Darla isn't worried, "They're farther away now, but they are very important to me and if I know them, they will take in the games." Editor's note: Trethewey is former Daily Globe sports editor. Graf By STEVE WILSTE|N AP Tennis Writer WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Steffi Graf cracked the thinnest of smiles and shed no tears, though the hurt was plain on her face as she weighed whether her loss Friday T- the first in 18 matches against Natasha Zver- eva — marked the end of her luminous Wimbledon career. *I definitely couldn't say, right now," the seven-time champion said after falling 6-4, 7-5 in the third round on an ominously bleak and gusty afternoon that gutted the schedule once again.' No. 2 Lindsay Davenport, the only other women's seed to finish a match, advanced to the fourth round with a 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 victory over Maria Alejandra Vento. Among the men, No. 6 Patrick Rafter reached the round of 16 by beating Magnus Gustafeson in four set*, and No. 14 Goran Ivanisevic completed a four-set, third-round win •5 V ° v * r Andre Medvedev. ; ^ Graf will turn 30 a csuple of weeks before Wimhledot*. next .year, a time in life whether she wanta family. A year from DOW, bar surgically repaired knoe will b* that WS OUt early Daily Crlobe Scoreboard much older, and the new wave of players will se«m that much younger, . "It would be nice to play again and, hopefully, be in different shape and enjoy myself," said Graf, who offered a quick wave with her left hand as she walked off Centrev Court. "But I've learned enough to take what's coming up next (as it comes). So I. don't know," She had come back, she said, for one more bowl of strawberries, one more chance to hold the silver salver aloft as champion. Only two other players have won Wimbledon more — Martina Navratilova (9) and the late : Helen Wills Moody (8) — and Graf knew her time wag running out to catch them. Graf was so emotional over this return that she wept at a news conference after her first match Monday as she recounted how close she had come recently to retiring. She had missed a year and played only four other tournament* this season, but was given a No. 4 seed. Yet no one could discount her chances after seeing her drop only two matches at Wimbledon since 1988. "Fraulein Forehand," as she came to be called here, had been playing Wimbledon nearly half her life since the age of 15, and she knew Centre Court better than anyone. And if anyone was going to run her out, the last person who figured to do it was Zvereva, the zany Belarussian who splashed through the puddles on Centre Court last year, who took doubles more seriously than singles, and who had never forgotten her first humiliation against Graf—6-0, 6-0 in the 1988 French Open final. : Blessed with talent and athleticism, Zvereva is famous for letting her mind and game wander in matches. She doesn't bother with a coach, sticks a few pins in her untamed hair before going out on court, fools around more than she practices, and goes out to have fun. She may be the most popular player on the women's tour, and everyone knows that on any given day she can beat any*" one except Graf. Until now. "I don't know if this was the 18th or 20th or 25th. but Tve done it," Zvereva bubbled. "Wow! I don't know how, but I've done it." Hockey x-Nanr 10 Mam* I 1 Scot! 0 2 4 S 5 4 • 1 . Oakland {Kr^rn 7,1!

IOCS p.m. Sorenstam, four others share early lead in LPGA tournament By RON SIRAK AP Golf Writer ABSECON, NJ. (AP) — Annika Sorenstam, Alicia Dibo«, Tina Barrett, Caroline McMillan and Moira Dunn dodged the thunderstorms on the Bay Course at the Seaview Marriott Resort on Friday and shot 5-under-par 66s to share the first- round lead in the ShopRite LPGA Classic. Sorenstam, who had played 15 holes when play was suspended the first time, tapped in the putt finishing her round just seconds before the alarm sounded for the second weather delay. A little more than half the field had finished play before the second delay. Play eventually resumed and Dunn, in the final group', finished just as daylight was disappearing. . "It's very important to get off to a good start in a 54-hole tournament," Sorenstam said. "When we came out after the delay, it was a totally different golf . course." Juli Inkater, Rosie Jones, Betsy King, Tammie Green, Lutiana ANNIKA SORENSTAM Bcmvenuti and Smriti Mehra were one stroke off the lead. Several players were bunched at 68, including Donna Andrews, the leading money winner on tour who has finished second in her last four starts. She bogeyed the final hole. Those with morning starting times not only had the advantage of getting their rounds in before the storm hit, but also were able to escape the worst of shirt-soaking humidity on a day when the temperature climbed into the 90s. "I'm just really glad to shoot the number I did playing in the afternoon," Sorenstam said. "I putted really well," she said. "I was just comfortable today." Barrett got her round going with a chip-in for birdie on No. 10 — her first hole of the day — and followed that with a 4-iron to 15 feet on the 187-yard llth for another birdie. : . She could have had the lead outright but three-putted from 30 feet on the final hole for a bogey. "I misread the first putt and just didn't hit .the second one," she said. McMillan — who was Carolyn Pierce when she won the JAL LPGA Classic in 1996 — also started her round on No. 10 and also got her round off the ground with a chip-in, hers coming on No. 13 from 20 feet.

(AP) — The Detroit Red Wings lost won of the key ingredients to their back-to- back Stanley Cup title* when the Nashville Predators picked Doug Brown in the NHL expansion draft on Friday. .Brown, 34, is coming off a ca- reer-betit scanon with 19 goals, finishing fourth in goals on the Wings. He saw more playing time this season because of the contract holdout by Sergei Fedorov. Brown, who scored two goals in the Stanley Cup-clinching game, also plays on the power-play and penalty-killing units and is- a good influence in the lockerroom. He was the only American on the Red Wings roster. The Wings were hoping the Predators would select goalie Kevin Hpdson, whom they likely will have to expose in the waiver draft before the start of next season anyway. The Wings also have goalie Norm Maracle waiting in the Wings. Instead, the Predators picked goalies Mike Richter of the New York Rangers, Mikhail Shtalk- enov of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Mike Dunham of the New Jersey Devils, Toman Vokoun of the Montreal Canadians and Frt>- dcric Chnbot of th«; Lo*i Angeles Kings, Register no'w for our July 4th g in^ camping gear giveaway, and you could be the winner of great prize pacbge incluJing an OU Town canoe or a Jayco Eagle 12 pop-up camping tr.nlcr and much more!
