THE BAYTOWN SUN SPORTS •Lee, Sterling spring football begin*, 2-C •Rockets handle Nugget* again, 3-C •Little League roundup, 3-C By ED CAMPBELL HOUSTON - While they finished a whopping 67 strokes behind Houston Eisenhower, the Ross S. Sterling girls golf team will gladly take the trip to Austin. Despite finishing second to the Eagles in the Region III girls golf tournament at Clear Lake Golf Club Tuesday, the Rangers are happy. After all, the rules state that the first two teams in the region will go to the state event. Eisenhower turned in a truly dominating performance, as the highest score among its five girls was a 91. The Eagles' final score was 703, compared to 770 for the Rangers. Houston Lee took third place at 831, or 61 strokes behind Sterling. West Orange-Stark finished fourth with a total of 836. The hosting Clear Lake Falcons were fifth with a score of 856, while Port Neches- Groves pulled into the clubhouse sixth at 875. Robert E. Lee's 877 was good for seventh, while Houston Memorial was eighth with 944. Individually, crimson-haried Michelle Baker took home the medalist honors. Baker led Elsenhower with a 42-40 for a glittering 82 total. Sterling's Kara Poling was second, with a 49 on the front nine but a blistering 38 on the back nine for an 87. Elsenhower's Shanna RSS girls earn third straight Austin trip Dinwiddie also fired an 87, with a 46 on the front nine and a 41 on the back nine. Eisenhower and Sterling will represent Region III in the state tournament, to be held on Autin's Jimmy Clay Golf Course on May 15-16. The trip will mark the Rangers' second straight appearance in the state tourney. The Rangers finished third a year ago behind eventual winner Palestine Westwood. After Baker's 82 and Dinwiddie's 87, the other Eisenhower scores reflected the Eagles' domination over the rest of the field. Carol Roundtree had the third-lowest score with a 43-46 day of 89. Kristy Broome was the "straggler," with a 47 on the front nine and a 43 on the back nine for a 90. Sharon Walker's low round of 91 was still the highest of the Eagles, and was dropped. Still, Sterling's scores weren't exactly embarrassing. Poling's 38 on the back nine was the lowest nine-hole round of the day. Melissa Hullum fired a 49 on the front nine, but trimmed four strokes off on the back nine for a 94. Kelly McQueen struggled early, with a 55 on the front nine. But McQueen, too, shaved two strokes off down the stretch to finish with a 108. Tracy Brodlne fired a respectable 51-52 total of 103.

(Sun staff photo by Vince Golle) "We wanted to catch up to Eisenhower, sure," said Sterling Coach Martha Marti. "But we're certainly happy with where we finished. We had a few difficult times today. We didn't play our best golf, and the winds didn't help much. "Of course, Kara and Melissa played great golf anyway. Kelly was disappointed, she wanted to do so much better than she did. That 10th hole killed her again today." Hullum's round was the seventh-best Tuesday. The Ganders finished only a little more the worse for wear after the second round than they did after the first round. Lee shot a combined 428 after the first 18 holes, but added 21 strokes to that for a 449 total on Tuesday. Andrea Taylor again led the way for Lee, with a 48 on the front nine and a 49 on the back for a 97. That score was the ninth-best of the day. Dee Dee Balcerak shot a 52 on the front and a 59 on the back for a 111 total and Pam Doolin had a 56-60 for a 116. Kathy Tilton fired a 60 on the front and a 65 oh the back for a 125. "We had a rougher day today than we did after the first round," said Lee Coach Mary Taylor. "But Andrea turned in two days of great golf. Dee Dee had a tough time putting today, which was just the reverse of the first day. Pam was very, very consistent. She hasn't wavered much all year. Kathy didn't do a bad job at all. She's learned a lot. "The wind didn't affect Pam and Kathy as much as it did Andrea and Dee Dee. The last drives of the day were tough. They were almost directly Into that strong headwind. That was the most frustrating thing for the girls.. In all, they did a fine job." Trade winds blow during first day of NFL draft NEW YORK (AP) — The trade winds at Draft Day '86 proved successful for the Dallas Cowboys. The defending NFC East champions thought the New York Giants would grab UCLA wide receiver Mike Sherrard when their first-round turn came. So, the Cowboys made their move. They swapped first-round positions with San Francisco, moving up from 20th to 18th, ahead of the Giants' 19th pick and grabbed Sherrard themselves. "Something finally worked out right for us," said Tex Schramm, the Cowboys president, who could only watch last year as San Francisco jumped In front of the Cowboys and drafted wide receiver Jerry Rice. There were 333 players chosen In Tuesday's NFL draft, from Helsman Trophy-winning running back Bo Jackson of Auburn with the first pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers down through late- evening list of players only scouts and family have heard of. But the most salient feature was an almost endless record series of deals marked by one contender trying to get a small edge on another. A few of the 18 deals through eight rounds Involved significant names — the Giants dealt two-time All-Pro cornerback Mark Haynes to Denver; the San Francisco 49ers sent backup quarterback.Matt Cavanaugh to Philadelphia and then picked up quarterback Jeff Kemp of Los Angeles — provided the Rams can sign him — for two draft choices they acquired from other teams. More Involved the changes of draft position — my seventh pick for your eighth and ninth. San Francisco alone swapped draft positions six times, making three trades and dealing Its way out of a first-round pick. San Diego finally stopped accumulating more wide receivers and running backs and dealt with Minnesota to move up from 14th to eighth in the first round. The Chargers used the pick to take defensive end Leslie O'Neal of Oklahoma State, perhaps the best pure pass rusher available. It was all part of a three-pronged transaction In which the Vikings also picked up a second-round pick from the Chargers that they immediately dealt to the Giants as part of a deal for the rights to offensive lineman Gary Zimmerman, late of the United States Football League's Los Angeles Express. "I was hoping for Leslie O'Neal but 1 didn't No-hitter fired dream we would be able to get him." San Diego Coach Don Coryell said. That also helped the Giants, one of the teams considered a strong challenger to the Bears In the NFC. As a result of the Haynes and Zimmerman deals, they ended up with four choices In the second round, the most In a single round by any team since the Los Angeles Rams had five In 1955. Then the Giants, whose defense was the NFL's second best statistically (the Bears were first) went out and picked four defensive players to go with Eric Dorsey, the Notre Dame defensive end they took with their first choice. The Bears, considering they had last position in the draft, didn't fare too badly either. They used that first-round pick on Florida running back Neal Anderson, who was expected to go much earlier. He will be groomed as the eventual successor to Walter Payton. On the second and third rounds, the Bears picked up possible replacements for wide receiver Dennis McKlnnon and cornerback Leslie Frazler, who are expected to miss all or most of next season with knee Injuries. Their second-round pick was corner- back Vestee Jackson of Washington, one of the higher-rated players at his position and on the Torres nearly perfect as Rangers top Eagles PASADENA - The Ross S. Sterling baseball team got back on the winning track Tuesday night behind pitcher Julio Torres, taking a 3-1 decision from the host Pasadena Eagles. Torres was masterful on the mound, hurling a no-hitter and running his league mark to 3-0. He fanned 11 Eagle batters in seven innings and surrendered only one walk. "Julio had great command of his pitches for the entire game," said Sterling Coach Al Hawthorne. "There was some pretty good defense behind him, too." The Ranger hitting was provided when third baseman David S_alinas and catcher Brad Walsh hit solo homers. Brian Gore's single scored Carlos Lozada from first base in the fourth inning as well. The shutout was lost in the bottom of the seventh when a throw from Walsh on a pickoff throw down to second went wild. Sterling moved to 7-6 in league play with the win. third-round they got All-America wide receiver David Williams of Illinois. AFC champion New England Patriots also had some good fortune. Though well-stocked with running backs, they grabbed Reggie Dupard of Southern Methodist on the 26th pick. Then, with the 15th pick of the second round, the Pats were still able to grab nose tackle Mike Ruthe of Boston College, the Outland Trophy winner. The Philadelphia Eagles and new head coach, Buddy Ryan, had a fascinating draft. Their first pick - the 10th of the draft - was Keith Byars, the Ohio State running back who would have been among the first three taken were It not for a broken foot that makes him a questionable participant in the 1986 season. With the second, the Eagles chose Anthony Toney, a Texas A&M fullback, as insurance. Then, with the third, they took Alonzo Johnson, a Florida linebacker whose agent found It necessary to circulate a letter before the draft volunteering his client for a drug test. The draft was completed in 17 hours, 44 minutes, with defensive back Mike Travis of Georgia Tech the final player chosen, by the San Diego Chargers.
