Cyclone Welghtman To Be Feature Attraction Northw*** Arkanw. TIMES, Thunday, April 29, 1974 ·) FAYITTIVILLI, ARKANSAS FHS Plans Coup In AAA Meet By GRANT IIALI, TIMES Sports Editor Paul White of Kuasellvllle will again bo the main attraction wnen tlio six AAA-West track tennis vie for the conference chnmplqnshlp at Harmon Field here Friday. White put the shot 64-11 % here nine days ago for the best nigli school throw in the country this year. He will assuredly win that event, a n d probably the discus, His presence makes Russellville the favorite to win the event, but Fayetteville Coach Scott Van Hoose isn't conceding anything. "Russellville has beaten us every time we've faced them this year," he said, "but we'll have an advantage Friday. "Erie Schluter of Hogers and David Jamcll of Fort Smith Southsldu figure to lake poltns nway from Russellville In the sprints, and that's where we've been hurt." Schluter has the league's best time in both the 100- and 220- yard dashes. 10.1 and 23.0. Jamell Is just a step or two behind. · · Van Hoose also gives Conway a chance to contend for the title: "They had 18 points to our 15 Saturday night at the Arkansas Tech Relays, but our edge in depth may be more of a factor in this meet." Fayetteville is strongest in the 880-yard and mile runs, the 120-yard high and 180-yard low hurdles, and the 880 and mile relays. In the 880, Clark Lewis has run a 2:01.8,,Keith SlriegeJ a 2:02.4, Howard P h e 1 ps a 2:04.1 and Barry Bramlett a 2:06. Ricky Griffin of Conway has run the mile in 4:38, but Lewis has run a 4::38.5 an dLee Stubblefield a 4:::41. Also for clocked 4:48 and Dune Dunn run the mile in 4:38, hut Lewis has run a 4:38.5 and Lee Slubblcflcld a 4:41. A l s o for I"ayetlevllle, Slrleglcr h a s 4:49. TAYLOR BEST HURDLER Rick Taylor of the Bulldogs has t h c cbst time In the low nurdles, 20.4, and Is second in the highs at 15.6. Fred Jackson of Conway has run a 15.4. Fayetteville has depth in the lows, where Rick Falres and Rick Karnbach have each run 21.1 and Eddie Jones 21.2. The Bulldog foursome of Chuck Smith, Dennis Dahler, Jeems Love and Faires has the best time in the 880-yard relay, 1:32.8. Lcs Ledbetler replaces Love on the mile relay team, which has run 3:28. Russellville sports the sixth best time in the state i nthat event, 3:26.0 Conway has the best performance in the 440-yard relay, 44.1. Fayetteville's best time there has been 45.5 Larry Bunting of the Wampus Cats is easily the class of the quarter-rollers with a 50.1 time. For Fayetteville, Dahler has run 53.0, Love 53.2, Tony Treat 53.9 and Ledbclter 54.1. Chasing Schluter and Jamcll n the 100 and 220 for the Bull- dogn will be Falres, Dahler and e, Falrcs has run 10.4 and !3,8, Love 10.7 and 23.5, and Dahler 10.6 and 24.1. Also en- erod are Brian Lachowsky, with a 10.7 In the 100, and Smith, with a 23.9 in the 220. Van Hoose noted that David Oatcs of Russcllvllle has a chance to belter the high jump record of 6-4 s e t by Fayetteville's Brian Kcllar In 1966. Oates has matched that height this year. The Bulldog's best hope Is Trey Trumbo, who has cleared 5-8. Don Bohannon's pole vault mark of 13-8 may also be challenged. Larry Anderson of Russellville has cleared 13-6. Dohannon set his record in 1970 f o r Fayetteville. Clayton Hughes at 12-6 and Steve Steward at 11-6 are the best Bulldog vaulters this year. WHITE CONFIDENT S p r i n g d a l e , Rogers a n d Southside will probably land in the second division, but Buz? Bowell should give Springdale a ribbon in the long jump where he has gone 21-10. For 'ayettcviile in that event, Cecil Honley has Jumped 20-7, Jim X 1 m I) r o u g h 30-3'/4, Lawson Ofiburn 20-1 and Taylor 20-0. Trying for needed points In field events for the Bulldogs will be Richard Hammons and Strlegler in the shot and Larry Atha and Billy Harrison in the discus. White said last week that he loped to throw the shot 68 feet in the conference meet and 70 feet in the Meet of Champions. The national high school record is 72-3'4, set by Sam Walker of Houston. White has been working on his spring by slamming two- handed dunks through a 10 foot, six inch basket. "I can't limit what I can do in the shot," he said. "That 64-9 throw in Little . Rock took all the pressure -off of me. I'm reaxed and confident now -- I get out there and goof around." He also said it was no accident that his 64-9 and 64-11 efforts came on his last throw. "That's the way I want it," he said. "I point for the last throw." · - . RICK FAIRES .. .will be the busiest B»!J- dog runner. "I was going to run in seven races," he said, "until i«e found out they were all in a row. Now I'm just running six" RICK TAYLOR .. .is expected to contend strongly in both trie ISO yard low hurdles and the 120-yard highs for Fayetteville Hog Cinder Team To Enter SMS Relays Coach Ed Renfrew's Arkansas track team enters the S o u t h w e s t Missouri State Relays Saturday at Springfield. "We always look forward to this meet," said Renfrew. "Usually. 16 or 17 teams run and the competition is always tough-" Arkansas will enter nine individual and eight relay events. Individual entries include Arthur Ezell in the high, long and triple jumps; Danny Hill and Daryle Revelle in the pole vault, Bob Craig in the 100-yard dash; Rex G u y n n and Todd Walker in the 120-yard Hurdles; Stuart Penn in the three-mile run; and Tom Aspel and Derek Reilly in the one- mile run.

The Razorbacks reached the NCAA playoffs last year in Bulldog Golf-Net Units Defend Titles The FHS golf and tennis teams will be out to defend their AAA-West titles h e r e Friday, with Fort Smith Southside plotting the stiffest opposition in both sports. Southside would have to be made the favorite in golf, having beaten the Bulldogs three times in three meetings this year. The Rebels won 328 to 333 at Hardscrabble, 307 to 331 at Ben Geren and 298 to 312 Tuesday at Fayetteville Country Club. Friday's 36-hole tournament will also be held at FCC, with the first 18 holes starting at 8:30 am. and the final round beginning at 2 p.m. Southside's strength is the consistency provided by Johnny Williams, Bill Henson, Rick Srygley and Kevin Phillips, all of whom shot in the 70s Tuesday. Fayetteville is led by Greg Hays, a senior who was conference champion us a sophomore and junior. Hayj also won the state AAA title last year. Jack Owen, Brown Pendleton and Read Hudson complete the Bulldog team Owen has been medalist twice this year, but Pendleton and Hudson have been inconsistent. Both played well Tuesday, however.

Play will begin at 9 a.m. Park and continue until around 5 p.m. Finals ir the singles should begin between 3 and 3:30. Mark Rom 01 Fayetteville will likely be the number one singles seed, and Curt Rom and Carl Imhoff are expected to be the : top seed in doubles.
