Sandra Post Takes Medina Open Lead MEDINA, Ohio (AP) -- Sandra Post, the 1968 LPGA champion, battled miserable elements for a one-undcr-par 71. Saturday's only sub-par effort, to seize the 36-hole lead in the $42,500 Medina Open. The 25-year-old Canadian !.,,- twe survived winds gusting to 30 miles per hour, thunder, lightning and heavy rain for a :ar race. The graying, 143 total over the «,200-yard Weymouth Country Club course. Thunder and lightning pended play for nearly soggy Valley sus- \A hours with all of the leaders still on the course. Gloria Ehret, 32-year-old veteran from Dallas, swept into second place, fashioning a 73 for a 144 total. Pam Barnett. 30, from Charlotte, N.C.. was third at 145, shooting 74.

Mrs. Carner, winner of three of the last four tour stops, had a 76--her highest score in weeks. Miss Haynie had a 74. Miss Post's was the lone sub- par total in the field of 66 professionals and six amateurs. It took a score of 162 or lower to make the cut to the final round Sunday. Miss Post, who has won less than $14,000 in 1974, rammed in birdies on three, five and 18 to offset bogeys at seven and nine. No one else could even match par under the horrible weather conditions. Miss Post said she didn't let the wind bother her. "I just avoided any trouble and putted well." said the blonde, who now lives in Bovnton Beach. Fla.

Pearson won the Motor State in 1972 and 1973 and the Yankee 400 oh the same track in 1972. If he wins again Sunday, his 1974 record would be four victories, two seconds, a third and two dropouts.

Pearson won last year's Motor City 400 at an average speed of 153.485 m.p.h. The unusually high average resulted from a caution-free 200 laps. Sunday's race was cut from 400 miles to 360 because of the gasoline situation. It will go 180 laps, instead ol the usual 200.

Last season the right-hander Frazier And Quarry Ready For 12-Round Bout Monday NEW YORK (AP) -- Joe _'razier and Jerry Quarry, two heavyweights at the crossroads of their careers, will meet in a 2-round heavyweight fight Monday night at Madison Square Garden. Another man on the spot will e former champion Joe Louis, scheduled to be the referee. The choice of Louis as referee has been a subject of con- .roversy ever since it was announced iresirient Teddy Brenner, Madison Square Jardcn Boxing, Inc. Some critics have questioned .he CD-year-old Brown Bomber's ability to handle a big light, but the New York State Athletic Corn-mission has given its approval and both fight camps have said Louis is acceptable to them. The winner of this fight, the first half of a closed-circuit television douhleheader, will be the top challenger lo the winner of the African adventure between champion George Foreman and Muhammad AH in September. "My next step is 'going back to the championship," said Fra zicr. But a defeat, which would be his third in four fights, probably will end the 30-year-old ex- champ's fighting career. A defeat wouldn't necessarily derail Quarry's drive to the top, but it would underscore his nability to "win the big ones." :t also would damage his bar- iaining power for big purses. LOST TO ELLIS Quarry lost to Jimmy Ellis i 1968 in a bid for the World Box- ng Association title, was stopped by Frazier in seven rounds in 1969 when Frazier was recognized as champion by six states, and was stopped ,wice by AH. The fight is scheduled to start at 10 p.m., EDT. and will be ollowed by Bob Foster's light h e a v y w e i g h t title defense against Jorge Ahumada at Albuquerque, N.M. The crowds at each fight see the other rout on television. Frazier is guaranteed $400,000 against 40 per cent of all income. Quarry is guaranteed $225,000 against 2211 per cent. Brenner has estimated a Garden crowd of 15,000 and a live gate of SBOD.OOO. Both fights will be seen at 188 closed-circuit locations in the United States and Canada and live in Argentina, Venezuela Brazil, Peru. Mexico, Co lomhia, Japan, Korea and th Philippines and on tape in several other countries, according to Bob Arum, president of Top Rank, Inc., which handles the ancillary rights.

(AP) -- The U.S. Open players who complain t h a t Lawrence of Arabia would be In his element with the myriad bunkers of Winged Foot Golf Club might try Alan Shepard's l u n a r golf club. "The moon is one great big sand rtap," the Apollo 14 astronaut said Saturday at Winged Foot after presenting the club to the U.S. Golf Association for its museum. Shepard made the six-iron from an aluminum and teflon "contingency sample handle," used for collecting moon dust, and a specially-fitted head and used it on the lunar surface during the February 1971 Apollo space mission. Although all the balls he hit sailed into eternity on the moon more than three years ago. Shepard confirmed he was in as much trouble as some of the players at Winged Foot. "The first one went about 200 yards," he said. "The second one I shanked and il went about 40 or 50 yards." Not bad for a one-handed swing, since he couldn't get both hands on the club because of his inflated pressure suit. But he spoiled the image by pointing out to everyone that by earth standards, the 200-yard shot would he a piddling 33 yards. Even then he didn't recover the golf balls. By now he figures they've disintegrated because of the extreme temperatures. "Hopefully they have," Shepard said. "No one knows Ina trade name of them, not even my wife. It's a secret 1 plan to take to my grave."
