UW SPORTS BRIEFS Laramie, Wyo., April 20--Wyo- ming spring sport teams gained an even split against Skyline op- ponents over the weekend with the Cowboys' defending confer- ence baseball and tennis squads overpowering Denver's Pioneers and Poke track and golf entries falling to strong opposition. The tally for the first full spring weekend was as follows: Baseball Wyoming 20, Denver 6. Wyoming 9, Denver 7. Tennis Wyoming 8, Denver I. Wyoming 7, Denver 2. Track Wyoming 55, Colorado A & M 76. Golf Wyoming 0, Denver 6. During a week's respite from conference campaigning the Diam- ond Nine will engage in a home: and-home series with the tough Colorado State Bears, playing host in their first home tilt of the sea- son here Friday at 2:30 p.m. Then traveling to Greeley for a Satur- day tussle. The tennis sextet has the weekend off, the golf team en- tertains the Colorado College four- some Saturday at Warren AFB in Cheyenne and the Poke cinder squad travels to Fort Carson for a Saturday dual meet at Colorado Springs. Sport by sport here are the high- lights of the past week's play and competition. It was a short home season for the Wyoming track team which made its only Laramie appearance of the year at Corhett field against always - tough Colorado A & M. The Cowboys made it rough all the way but sweeps in the low hurdles, pole vault and victory in the mile relay by the Rams turn- ed the tide. Wyoming showed greater balance than for some sea- sons and in the weight events sur- prisingly outscored the usually dominant Rams, 20-7. Jim Elder beat the Pokes' de- fending mile champ, Louis Mad- rid, and in so doing smashedthe Corbett field mark for the distance. The sorrel-topped Cheyenne junior ran 4:32.3s to best team mate Mad- rid's 4:35.9 standard of 1953. Grid wingback, John Watts, won both 100 and 220-yard sprints with ease, but Coach Wiles Hallock's forces will have to do without the Mississippi speedster this weekend against Fort Carson because of conflict with spring football. The same will go for Butch Wilson of Ethete, second in the 440, and sophomore Merle Worden, second in the discus. Additional top Cowboy point- getters were Ken Moore, discus Winner and shot runnerup; Wally Averett, javelin winner; Jerry Nash, high jump runnerup; and Jordan Smith, second in the 880. Wyoming's top tennis stars, Jim Herd and Carlton Doe, kept their season records unblemished against the Pioneers, but the Poke num- ber two doubles combination of Bill Sagin and John Watts fell by the wayside. Herd, Skyline singles titlist eas- ily won both individual assign- ments and teamed with Doe for a pair of doubles victories. Doe, Sagin, Watts and Chuck Van Blair all went unbeaten in their singles matches both Friday ad Saturday. Dee Dirmelly, Laramie senior playing the Cowboys' number stroked his first singles triumph of the season and with Van Blair teamed to win an initial doubles match the first day, then lost on Saturday in both singles and doubles. Sagin and Watts met their first doubles defeat Friday. After this week's layoff the Cow- boys swing into Skyline action Ap- ril 29 and 30, against Colorado A & M at Fort Collins. Lew Lepore and Bob Knox, the Yokes top golfers, waged a good fight aaginst the Pioneers terrific twosome Skid Plrtle and Frank Van Meter, hut when they lost a one up decision to this pair, all hopes of scoring a point againt the potent Pioneers went flying. Gaylord  Pearson and Pete Schunk were the other Wyoming victims, losing to Tom Carson and Glen Baxtrom respectively. Coach Jack Alford's foursome is expecting much better things in its first home match of the sea- son Saturday morning against Colorado College at Warren Air Force Base. With the conference season one- third finished the Cowboys' 1955 baseball team held a comfortable lead over its three eastern division rivals on the way to what Coach Bud I)aniels hopes will be a see- Local PTA Sale Brings In $165 The Sundance Parent-Teachers Association raised $165.09 from its rummage sale, PTA Presi- dent Bernice Williams said this week.

I/'qkllllllll for Gillette It's much too early to be count-] ing pennants before they're i With a break from the unpredict- stitched but the Cowboys' oppn-fable spring weather, Coach Bill ents are helping things too, by splitting their conference clashes with each other. The Pokes have yet to play a home game and yet have dispatch- ed safely two of their three rivals --Denver and New Mexico---twice away from home and have nearly two weeks to get ready for Colo- rado A & M at Fort Collins. Here's the way the eastern division stand- ings look at present: Teams W. L. Pet. Wyoming ............... 4 0 1.000 Colorado A & M .... 1 I .500 New Mexico .......... 2 4 .333 Denver ................... 1 3 .250 Utah seems to be shaping up as the team to beat in the Western Division, but Daniel isn't worrying about that race yet despite the fact that the Redskins are un- beaten. The Pokes continued to belt the ball an an unmerciful clip against the Pioneers--particularly short- stop Bob Jingling, all Skyline and second All America of 1954. The slender sticker tagged the seed 8 times in 11 at bats against the Pioneer and holds an even .500 hitting average on the season. He's the coleader in home runs, 'and is also setting the pace in RBIs and total bases. Erstwhile pitcher Ed Litecky is now hitting .353 from his right field spot; Ron Drost the Cowboys' capable catcher is .353, centerfield- er Don Napierkowski is .351 and third baseman Gerry Nagle is .326. Only all conference first sacker, Steve Knezevich, is slumping with .268 and left field Fritz Heiss has fallen off the team leading pre- centage pace last year and is now only .250. Bob Villasenor and Ralph Vaughn, Wyoming's top right band- ers, each earned a verdict over Denver. The Virginian junior who racked up his third straight ver- dict without a defeat, was a bit wilder than Villasenor who even- ed his season record at 2 wins against a pair of losses. Schmidt's Sundance track team will leave for Gillette Friday and the conference track meet. All preliminary field events will be run off starting at 10 a.m. at Gillette Friday with the finals set for the afternoon. Schmidt's track squad, hamper- ed by bad weather which prevented much outside practice, limped in third in the triangular meet held at Newcastle last Friday. Newcastle won the meet easily with 165 points. Upton placed second with 68 points and Sun- dance had 19. Bert Fall scored the Bulldog's only first place points when he threw the discus 111 feet. Fall also finished third in the shotput. William Reed finished fourth in the mile run, which was won by Pearson of Newcastle in 5:25.4. The final Sundance points wl'e recorded when the 880 relay team and the 440 relay team both finish- ed third. Schmidt also released the lineup he'll use at the Gillette conference meet. In the 100-yard dash are Beagle, Bennick and Shewey with Jensen, Bennick and Shewey entered in the 200-yard dash.
