Springstead questioned only one pitch, in the eighth inning By Jack Ogden Executive Sports Editor Prairie girls track coach, Sharon Cole, is optimistic and hopeful as her squad heads into its opening competition this week, but she isn't being fooled by an impressive list of 14 re- turning letter winners.

Some of the standout retur- nees include Jodey Lefebure who just missed a state trip by one tenth of a second a year ago. Another is Jo Erase, just a soph who consistently throws over 200 feet in the softballj throw. I Cathy Zalesky, another veter- an, has been 11.6 in the 100 and her best a year ago was .12.4; Carol Wilcox, also a letterwin- ner, has done 28 seconds in the 220 and Wendy Johnson, just a freshman, has already cut her mile time down to "We are hurting a little in the distance con- cedes Sharon, "largely be- cause we didn't have cross country. But we should be strong in the sprints and we are hopeful that two or three of the freshmen and sopho- mores will come along fast to give us more depth and help us in the relays." "The other letterwinners on hand here include Debbie Hurt. Emma Fairlie, Carol Wilcox Lynetta Ziskovsky, Sue Wodstr- chill, Debbie Klein, Debbie Waid, Lisa Nelson, Kim Aldrich. Debbie Whalen, Brenda Mc- Gurk and Cindy Cisar. "Last year we did pretty well in dual meets, but we couldn't quite get in among the leaders in the big events.

That was in contrast to (he opener when Perry said, that being the first game of the sea- son for him and Scringstead. "we were both a little rusty and had poor games." Meanwhile, in other Ameri- can League games Friday, the Baltimore Orioles downed the Milwaukee Brewers 5-3, the California 'Angels massacred the Chicago White Sox 15-1, the Boston Red Sox beat the De- troit Tigers 6-3, and the Kansas City at Minnesota game was postponed because of wei grounds. The Yanks, however, were not convinced of Perry's in- nocence, charging that he stil was delivering illegal pitches.

By The Associated Press Time just ran out on Buffalo Coach' Jack Ramsay's 4-year- ild child. Or did it? Ramsay, acting the part of a disappointed parent, fussed and umed, then filed an official protest Friday after the Braves vere apparently eliminated rom the National Basketball Association playoffs by Boston 06-104. The Celtics, who are lied to move on to the Eastern Conference finals against New York Sunday, won the game when Jo Jo White connected on two free throws, standing by himself on the court and no time left on the clock. Ramsay Profesfs "You don't end a playoff series on a foul like Ramsay said after the game and before he'd seen the video tapes. Then, after Ramsay checked the tapes, a Braves' Jeff's Baseball Vets Photo by John Mclvor Pitcher Bruce Barber (left) shows other Jefferson high ,'ettermen how he grips a baseball. The others are Jeff Doonan, Gary Kohl, Dave Gaskill and Guy Stoecker. By AI Miller Gaiettc Sports Writer Jefferson high's baseball tearr isn't blessed with a lot of vcter ans, but that doesn't seem to bother Coach Vern Bredeson. "That's typical for Bre- deson said of the lack of experi- ence. "We seem lo lose quite a few players each year. "But the problem is picking a starting team; we haven't been able (o get in a lot of practice time." Bredeson wouldn't if something else this season is The other Icttermcn are Jeff Gaskill; first base-Sioecker Al typical" of past j-Hawk clubs. spokesman said a telegram was sent to NBA headquarters pro- testing Ihe game. "There was a gap of about two seconds after the alleged foul when time was allowed to run Ramsay be- lieve the game should be re- started with two seconds re- maining.'1 New York clinched its berth in the Eastern Conference fi- nals by beating the Capital Bul- lets 91-88 in a series that had gone down to its seventh game. Indiana also clinched a West Division final berth in the American Basketball Associ- ation Friday by beating the San Antonio Spurs 86-79. Indiana will travel to Utah today to be gin the division finals. In other games today, the Kenlucky Colonels and New York Nets open their ABA Easi Division finals in New. York and Detroit and Chicago decide the winner of then- NBA West- ern Conference semifinal series at Chicago. McAdoo Fouls After Bob McAdoo's two bas- kets vaulted the Braves into a 104-104 tie, the Celtics in- wunded to John Havlicek, whose shot in the lane was blocked by McAdoo. White re- rieved the loose ball and tfcAdoo grabbed him on the eft arm as he went up for a shot. White went down and ref- eree Darrell Garretlson blew his whistle to signal a foul. "If a foul is called, time should be Ramsay said. But the foul ocouiTed eithe'- al zero on the clock or after time lad run out. "In my judgment there were wo seconds left when the al-, eged foul by McAdoo was com- miled." Havlicek led Ihe Celtics with 0 points, and McAdoo, the j league's leading scorer, had 40. Knicks 91, Bullets SS Earl Monroe had a season- high 30 points ant1, sparked a third-period surge that kept the Knicks out of trouble in their which moved to within four at 81-77 with four iminutes left. Capital's Elvin Hayes, who played only 37 minutes and took himself out of the game at one point in exhaustion, scored just 12 points. Pacers 86, Spurs 79 Roger Brown's 28 point sparked defending champior Indiana, which had to rallj from a 15-point deficit in thi third quarter.

Jeff returns five lettermcn from last year's club which posted a 28-9 record for the spring and summer. Bredeson said, "we don't have anybody back who vas a starter, iarbcr, Gary Stoecker started a few games." although Bruce Kohl and Guy Doonan and Dave Gaskill Barber was 4-0 as a pitcher in 1973 and Bredeson thinks he should be "outstanding" this year. Stoecker and Dave Al berls will join Bruce as the mainstays of the mound corps. The Jeff coach says there is plenty of competition for start- ing jobs "and lhat should make us a better team." At this point, the positions or sattles belong lo: catcher Selinger; second base Doon- an; shortstop r- Randy Jacob- son; third base Russ Smith, Mike Trosky, Mark Rodemeycr; left field Kohl, Kevin Schirm; center John Mueller, Fred Stoekcr, Terry Earnest; right Tony Moyer.
