And Connors' fiancee, Chris Evert, says playing in Denver is much easier than she expected. In fact, she complained that it was too easy after she defeated Kristy Pigeon 6-0, 6-0 in the opening round of a women's pro tennis tournament Connors' agent, Bill Riordan, telephoned tournament director Barry McKay Tuesday night to say Connors would arrive in San Francisco at 1 p.m. and be on hand for his 8 p.m. match with Richard Dell of Bethesda, Md. Aggie 'Backer Voted AP Laurels By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Remember the name Garth TenNapel. It's TenNapel, no space; not Ten Napel. Pretty soon it may be Garth Twenty- Tackle. After all, the Texas AM linebacker has made 20 tackles in each of the Aggies' first two ga-mes. He made 10 solos, as- sisted on 10 others and recovered a fumble to set up the winning touchdown in the 21-14 upset victory over Louisiana State Saturday night. For that performance, the 6- foot-2, 202-pound junior from Euless, Tex., has been named National College Lineman of the Week by The Associated Press. "It was the greatest game Garth ever played," said linebacker coacli John Paul Young, aware that TenNapel also made 20 tackles against Clemson a week earlier.

He was named Defensive Player of lite Week by the AP jor his play in AM's 21-14 win over LSU ,, pa: years have gone to Ed Simpn- ini, a second team All-America selection last fall. So it was ironic that TenNapel had to move over to Simonini's strong- side position Saturday night when Simonini was knocked unconscious in the third quarter. "It bugs me sometimes that Ed gets all the publicity," Ten- Napel says, "but as long as the school gets recognition it's okay." "Defensive coordinator Melvin Robertson had our boys ready." said Head Coach Emory Bellard. "When you can hold an outstanding team like LSU, you are doing pretty good." Despite Ten Nap el's efforts the Aggies were locked in a 14-0 .ball game until TenNapel recovered an LSU fumble at the los ers' 37-yard line in the fourtl period. Six plays later, AM had the winning touchdown. But LSU wasn't through. The Tigers drove to a third-and-two on the Aggies' 28 with just ove a minute left. "They were in the triple op tion and I didn't think they would hand off to the dive back," TenNapel said. "So I just went ahead and took the quarterback. I fast-played him instead of slow-playing him like you usually do on the option." TenNapel nailed the quarterback for a sizable loss. A fourth-down pass was broken up and the Aggies ran out the clock. In winning Lineman of the Week honors, TenNapel beat out Navy rover Chet Moeller. who made 13 tackles in a 7-6 upset over Penn State, and Miami of Florida middle guard Rubin Carter, who was in on 16 tackles as the Hurricanes beat Houston 20-3. After winning the $16,000 first prize in the Pacific Southwest Open at Los Angeles Monday night, Connors told newsmen lie intended to skip the tournament here where he is seeded No. 1 because he had a sore toe. Stan Smith of Sea Pines, S.C., seeded No. 2, won his opening match Tuesday night over John Holladay of Los Angeles, 6-4, 64. . I'd expected the altitude to bother me more, but it was really no problem," said the top-seeded Miss Evert, who is the current holder of the Wim- bleton, Italian and French championships. "It would be better to get a few more tougher matches in,' she said. "I really feel bad for Kristy because she really hac eated Wendy Overtoil, 6-2, C-3 Tuesday night. Fifth-seeded Julie Heldman had a tougher time, but was a l s o viclorous, defeating Jianne'Fromholtz 7-5, 6-7, 6-4. ; roblems erself." . she really wasn' P hi The top live seeds in the tour nament, including Miss Evert advanced to the second round Second-seeded Nancy Guntei and third-seeded Evonne Goola gong won opening roujid match es Monday.
