PG East: Thursday, July 13, 1989 9 TALK OF THE TOWMEAST He's a President Off to eollega: Brandon Schaa-far, who helped lead the Hempllald High boys basketball team to a 24-5 record last season, will play college basketball at Washington and Jefferson under Coach John Unice. Sense-fer, a 6-3, 200-pound forward, wasthe Spartans' leading scorer, averaging 17.8 points per game. He scored 515 as a senior, and 1,141 In his career. The Presidents were 1 2-10 overall last year and second In the Presidents Athletic Conference with an 8-4 record. Both of W&J's forwards Dave Branchen (18 points, 9.2 rebounds) and Buddy Quertinmont (12.3 points, 6.8 rebounds) return next season, which means Schaefer probably won't start as a freshman. "Each person coming In has different strengths," said Unice. " Schaefer is unique. He is strong, has the ability to shoot the ball, and we see him as being very versatile. And he can play around the basket . . . Sure, we have veterans coming back. But we make it a point that all players compete for their positions. With freshmen, they progress at their own rate. College is a big adjustment for anyone." Making waves: The Eastern Swim Association of Pittsburgh will hold its Division I championships July 22 at Forest Hills. Ten teams, representing Monroeville, Murrysville, Forest Hills, Penn Hills, Edgewood, Plum, Highlands and Verona, will compete. The meet will be held on a short course, measured In yards, and will feature age-group competition for swimmers 8-17. About 500 swimmers are expected to compete, said meet director Terry Michaels. There will be 30 events, including three mixed relays, which will be open to swimmers of all ages. Preliminaries will start at 9 a.m., with finals at 1 p.m. The meet will not be sanctioned by U.S. Swimming, the national governing body. "We're in our 26th year," said Michaels. "Our organization provides a fun way for swimmers to oompete while they stay in shape for U.S. Swim meets." Perfect start: First-year team St. John Fisher of the Pittsburgh Catholic Youth Ministry Co-Ed Softball League has an 8-0 record after defeating St. Athanesus of West View Sunday, 19-5. The Churchill-based team consists of players aged 14-18 and league rules call for each team to field five boys and fivegirls at all times. St. John Fisher has scored at least 10 runs in every game this season and a league championship would mean a trip to the state tournament. Now half-way through the season, St. John Fisher meets St. Matthews on Sunday at West Woodland Hills Junior High at 3 p.m. Smorgaaports: Norwin High School's Dan Tomko has been named a recipient of a Big 33 $500 scholarship. The Big 33 football game will be played July 29 at Hershey Stadium . . . Central Catholic has an opening for a boys' varsity swim coach for the 1989-90 school year. Those interested should call the school's athletic director's office at 621-8189. . DO YOU REMEMBER?

Tuesday, Pollack lost to Israel's Shachar Perkis, 7-5, 6-0. Hitting for the cycle: Allderdice's Kan Vuettnar hit for the cycle and led his Greenfield "B" team to a 16-10 victory Tuesday over Garfield in an Allegheny Baseball League Pony League game. Vuettner was 5-for-5 in the game and had seven RBI. He is the team's leading hitter this season with a .645 average. Greenfield is 3-8. On ice: Greensburg's Jack Williams is currently attending USA Hockey's Select 17 camp at the U.S. Olympic Training Center In Colorado Springs, Colo. The camp, which is for the nation's top 17-year-old hockey players, began last Thursday and runs through Sunday. Williams, who spent the last two seasons playing for the Chicago Young Americans midget (16-17 year-old) team, will compete for the Kitchener, Ont., Rangers Major Jr. 'A' team this winter. He is projected as a first- or second-round NHL draft choice In 1990.

Compiled by Dann Palmer Expert Insulation Full Factory Warranties .twill H EH DD mnm Beard grows into By Dejan Kovacevic Garrett Beard moved from the Penn Hills area to South Carolina after his sophomore year of high school, and Penn Hills High coach Bill Groff knew he was losing someone special. "You could see it even when he was that young," Groff said. "This kid had a swing that was so sweet. Boy, do I wish he would have been around for his last couple of years here." These days, Beard is swinging the bat and playing third base for the Salem (Ore.) Dodgers in the short-season Class A Northwest League. And he is doing quite well in his first professional season. Through 22 games, Beard leads the league with 25 RBI. "It was hard for me to think when I was back at Penn Hills that I would be doing something like this now," Beard said. "But it's always been my goal to play pro ball and I'm having so much fun now. It's a great experience and something I always wanted." After he graduated from high school in South Carolina, Beard, 21, Fulton demoted by Yankees By Dave Assad Two years ago, Bill Fulton pitched briefly in Yankee Stadium. But since appearing in games against Boston and Toronto in September 1987, Fulton has not been back. The Penn Hills High School graduate recently changed uniforms in the Yankee organization. Geographically, Fulton is closer to Yankee Stadium. However, pitching in the Bronx seems to be further from his grasp. Fulton was demoted last week from the Class AAA Columbus Clippers of the International League to Class AA Albany (N.Y.) of the Eastern League. The 25-year-old righthander had not been pitching well. His earned run average in Columbus jumped from 1.76 May 20 to 4.41 July 3, when he was demoted. The change made room for former Pirate left-hander Hipolito Pena, a three-year major league .LUUnJINJCAnRtzJio' OIL CHANGE j I MOST CARS I I I UP TO SOT OF MUITI WEIGHT MOTOR OIL NEW FILTER CHASSIS IUBI !front"v7h"eel" i ALIGNMENT a ADJUST CASTER.

He spent the past two years at Spartanburg Methodist Junior College in South Carolina. "I was lucky. Our coach down there had some connections with Dodger scouts and got them to take a look at me," Beard said. What the scouts saw was a player who hit .343 and slugged nine home runs at Spartanburg. It was enough for the Dodgers to select Beard in the 48th round of the 1988 amateur veteran who is recovering from a wrist injury. Also added to the Columbus roster recently was pitcher Jimmy Jones, who has 18 major league victories in his career. "It's a Darwin-like atmosphere in the minors, especially in the higher classifications like triple A" said Peter Jameson, New York assistant director of player development. "It's the survival of the fittest and if someone in the organization feels we can get a player who can do a better job, someone is going to be squeezed out. I think that's what happened to Bill Fulton. "He's done a serviceable job for the past two or three years in triple A but we want to give others an opportunity." Jameson indicated the Yankees are giving Fulton an opportunity to be a starting pitcher in Albany. Of Fulton's 26 appearances this season in Columbus, 25 were in relief.

Beard elected to wait a year and fulfill his requirements at Spartanburg before he signed with the Dodgers in May. So far, Beard has not been a disappointment. In addition to his league-leading RBI total, he has a .303 batting average (27-87), five doubles, two home runs, and two stolen bases for Salem (14-11), the league's second-place team. "Garrett has shown great bat control with men on base and it 2-2. He had six saves but none since May 23. George loses Chris George of Plum saw his record drop to 2-5 Saturday when the Stockton, Calif, relief ace lost to San Bernardino, 2-1, in 14 innings. George pitched four of the five extra innings, giving up only three hits and a walk while striking out two. George, who pitches in the Milwaukee Brewers farm system, is second in saves in the California League with 18. McDowell wins Augusta, Ga. Pirates pitcher Tim McDowell, a Monroeville resident, struck out 10 batters while recording his fifth victory in nine decisions last Thursday. McDowell gave up only six hits and one run in 7Vi innings as Augusta defeated the Myrtle Beach Blue Jays, 2-1 in a Class A South Atlantic League game.

"Our team doesn't have a lot of power so we use him in the cleanup spot because we need him to produce runs for us. "He hits the ball very hard and goes with the pitch, which is something we usually have a hard time teaching the younger players. He is a terrific line drive hitter. Garrett's defensive play is sound, too, but he still has to work on learning some of the Dodgers' way of doing things." Like any minor leaguer, Beard hopes to get a shot at moving up through the Dodger system. Ford said Beard's position might help his chances. "Being a third baseman, your chances of moving up are going to increase," Ford said. "I think if Garrett can keep hitting the way he is, that he has a good chance of moving up. The Dodgers really haven't had a pure third baseman come through the ranks since Jeff Hamilton. Who knows? Garrett might be the next one." Beard is trying, however, to keep things in perspective. "I think if I play the way I can, I'll play for a full season Class A team next year and hopefully keep improving," Beard said. "But yeah, I think about Los Angeles a lot. At Penn Hills that was just a dream, but the closer it gets the better it looks.", "FTTSSjgBgSJSBjrft -fSJdBjff 1 7jf3Pr - 9mBltmnmIWmff1thl AUTO APPEARANCI CINTER RT. 286 MONROEVILLE HOURS: MON.
