Leslie Ringrose and Karen Heath, of Edmonton, put on a dazzling performance and captured the synchronized swimming duet title before a capacity crowd at Stan Siwik Pool Thursday night. Miss Ringrose, 18, and Miss Heath, 17, who have been swimming as a team for just three years, were simply out- standing in. their successful bid for a gold medal. The young Edmontonians scored 82.40 points out of a possible 100 points in their quest for the duet title. The B2.40 points were an ac- cumulation of 40.40 paints for execution (technical) and 42.00 points for composition (with "I'm really happy we won the commented Miss Ringrose, who had calmed down somewhat after receiv- ing the gold medallion.

Mary Jane Ling, who earn- ed a silver medal in the solo competition Wednesday night, teamed with Jo-Anne Garner to land a silver medal for On- tario, while Barbara Arnold and Janet McCusker joined forces to give B.C a bronze medal. The two gals from Ontario picked up 40.00 points for execution and 39.60 points for composition while the B.C. duo registered 39.40 for execu- tion and 40 points for com- position.

By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer A spectacular dismount in- volving a double somersault and a full twist climaxed a near-perfect performance on the horizontal bar for Quebec's Jean Choquette in the gymnastics competitions at the Exhibition Pavilion Thursday night. Choquette's demonstration brought a prolonged roar of approval from a sell-out crowd of 2600, and earned him a 9.10 out of ten from the judges. The only other score as high all day was another 9.10 by Choquette in the vaulting event earlier. His two winning perfor- mances highlighted the action as the second day of preliminaries saw four men's and women's qualifying events run off. The finals, featuring the top six finishers in each preliminary event, are set to go beginning at 7 p.m. tonight at the Exhibition Pavilion. Choquette earlier won the pommel horse event, finished second in floor exercise, and fourth in parallel bars, giving him a chance to go home with six medals after tonight's events. The 18-year-old Montreal athlete has already wrapped up the men's all- round gold medal, and he stands to pick up five medals in the event finals. As a team, the Quebec men, along with Ontario com- petitors, continued their dominance of the sport. The two eastern provinces earned 21 of 24 berths in the event finals for which preliminaries were run off Thursday. It was much the same story in the women's preliminaries, as Quebec alone grabbed eight of twelve positions in two events. Tanya Mayne of Quebec won the women's all-round gold medal after earning final berths in both of her events Thursday. The capacity crowd caught on quickly, and all eyes were usually on Quebec's com- petitors when they were in ac- tion. At the end of virtually every Quebec performance, a rousing burst of applause demonstrated the throng's appreciation. An unfortunate accident clouded the proceedings momentarily in the afternoon Alberta basketballers have bad day By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer The Alberta men's basket- ball team finds itself squarely behind the proverbial eight- ball after two days of basket- ball action in the Canada Winter Games.' Alberta's 80-74 loss to Nova Scotia Thursday night leaves them with a 1-1 record in the competition. In order to make it into the finals, where the top two teams in the A and B divisions will compete for the gold medal, Alberta must now defeat Quebec and also pull for Nova Scotia to upend Quebec as well. Quebec remained unbeaten after two games Thursday as they easily chalked up their second win 140-65 over Prince Edward Island. Besides having to beat the lough Quebec squad, Alberta also has to get by the other two teams in the A division, Prince Edward Island and the Northwest Territories. Neither team should pose much of a problem, however, for the Alberta represen- tatives from Mount Royal College. Thursday night at Magrath Alberta was on the verge of taking over their game with Nova Scotia with only remaining to play when they knotted the score at 64-64 after trailing by nine points only minutes earlier. As suddenly as the momen- tum had swung in Alberta's favor it swung back to the eastern team through a couple of bad Alberta passes and bad shooting. From that point on Alberta was scrambling in order to stay close. Kevin Kelly was top point getter for Nova Scotia with 22 and Donald Robertson chipped in with 16. Slu Bauck led the Alberta scoring parade with 16 points, and joe Shemanski, celebrating his 20th birthday during the game, rang up 14 points. Big Jim Anderson was a power on the boards with 14 rebounds as well as chipping in with 12 points for Mount Royal. Varouj Guranulian once again topped the Quebec scorers as he came up with 33 points in their win over P.E.I. That gives him a total of 67 points in the two games he's played. Gordon MacKay had 13 points in a losing cause for the Islanders in the one-sided game played at Magrath. Ontario dropped New- foundland '80-58 in another game played at Magrath. David Kirychuk was tops for the winners with 16 points and both Pete Short and Leo Buckle had 12 apiece for the losers. Saskatchewan just failed to make the century mark as they bested the Northwest Territories 97-31 at Magrath. Three Saskatchewan players, Ron McKay, Glen Novak and Dick Weir, all had 18 points for the winners. In a game played at the University at Lethbridge New Brunswick, led by Blair MacDonald with 30 points, defeated the Yukon 120-58. Robert Morrell had 20 for the losers. British Columbia upended Manitoba 62-48 at the U of L behind the 15 point attack of Dave Kirzinger. Brian Rumsey was tops for Manitoba with 20 points. The Alberta women lost their second consecutive game Thursday as they, dropped a 61-48 decision to New Brunswick at the Sportsplex. Joyce Douthwright and Kim Hansen scored 14 points each for the winners while Nora Way chipped in with 14 for Alberta. Jane Estrom scored 20 points to lead Manitoba to a 108-25 win over the Northwest Territories in a game at the Sporlsplex. In Raymond Cynthia Dean scored 14 points for Nova Scotia which defeated the Yukon 96-18. Ontario bested New- foundland 71-46 at the Sportsplex behind the 14 point outing of Jeannie Tuomi. In two other games at Raymond, British Columbia received 16 points from Deva Bland to help upend Prince Edward Island 92-21 and Quebec dropped Saskatchewan 74-48 on the strength of Sylvia Sweeney's 17 point performance.

The 17-year-old athlete evidently went into his dis- mount while the rings were swinging outwards, and as a result, landed near the edge of the mat. His momentum carried him backwards otf the mat, and he struck the back of his head on the floor. He was rushed to St. Michael's hospital, but was later reported resting comfor- tably at the Infirmary in Game's Village. The accident cost Bibby a chance to compete in the finals of the men's floor exer- cise tonight. He qualified by finishing sixth in the preliminary Wednesday, but became ineligible when the in- jury forced him to miss his final event. Andre Vallerand of Quebec had the day's third-highest score with a 9.00 to win the parallel bars event. He also won the silver medal in the all-round event, while another Quebecer, Jacques Pannitti, took the bronze. Catherine Corns of Manitoba and Ontario's Merrie-Ellen Wilcox broke the Quebec dominance of all- round medals by earning the silver and bronzeTespectively in women's events. Alberta will have one gym- nast in the finals tonight. Janie Fleming recorded a score of 8.00 to earn a spot in the finals of the women's balance beam. All-round medals Men Choquette, Que. Vallerand.

Wilcox, Onl. gold silver bronze gold silver bronze Wrestling field trimmed CARDSTON (Special) Hundreds of people from this southern Alberta town that calls itself Canada's "Temple City" gave wrestlers com- peting in the Canada Winter Games Thursday one of the warmest receptions seen since the Games began Tues- day night. More than 700 people crowd- ed the gymnasium for brief opening ceremonies and hundreds more watched various stages of the day-long wrestling competition which trimmed the bulky field of competitors to a handful in each of 10 weight divisions. A member of the Cardston co-ordinating committee for the Games said wrestling has a unique status in the town! Cardston High School has the only school wrestling club in the region, and one of the Alberta team members is from the club. David Lowry, 17, of Cardston was eliminated from competition in the 154-pound weight class, but the standing- room-only crowd still gave him a standing ovation each time he wrestled. Lowry was Alberta bantam champion in 1973 and Alberta High School, junior and junior Olympic champion in 1974. British Columbia and On- tario each had 10 wrestlers in the second day of wrestling today, while Quebec had nine and Alberta and Nova Scotia qualified eight each. Saskatchewan and Manitoba each had seven wrestlers con- tinuing. Newfoundland had six wrestlers still in contention while Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick had four each, the Yukon two and the Northwest Territories one. Eight Ontario wrestlers breezed through four matches without a loss Thursday, while five B.C. wrestlers went un- defeated. Four Quebec grapplers won all their matches. Most of the other qualifiers lost fewer than five "bad points" in their matches. Curling Ontario women unbeaten Alberta men share lead 0 2 0 By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Calling a cool, calculated game Kim Clark and her Ontario quartet ran their record to six wins and no losses as day two of the curl- ing competition at the 1975 Canada Winter Games became history. Clark, with almost machine-like precision, continued to roll over her opposition and became the only unbeaten rink, in both the men's and women's competition. "It's nice to be said Miss Clark. But she realizes she has some tough games com- ing up. Clark and her red-shirted mates chalked up three more wins Thursday and appear to be in the driver's seat in the chase for the gold medal. In the meantime, an upset 10-9 win by British Columbia over previously unbeaten Manitoba in the men's section has thrown the race into a battle of three western powers. Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., are all deadlocked at five wins and one loss each. Clark, whose only close game Wednesday was a 12-9 win over Alberta's Joan Phillips, had her hands full on more than one occasion Thursday. She gave up two on the final end against Newfoundland but still left the ice a 12-9 vic- tor. In the afternoon draw she met Prince Edward Island and was victorious to the tune of 9-7. Her sixth straight triumph came at the expense of Colleen Williamson of British Columbia, a 10-7 win that was almost decided on the first end when Clark scored five. Clark rales as a solid favorite to win the gold medal as her nearest rivals are 4-2, and include Alberta, Manitoba and Prince Edward Island. Sandy Lusby, the Nova Scotia skip, saw her attempt at being the Cinderella rink of the competition fall completely apart as she dropped three straight games after surpris- ing everyone with three wins Wednesday. Alberta, skipped by Joan Phillips of Calgary, ran away from New Brunswick 16-2 in the morning draw, then lost a tough 9-8 decision to Quebec before coming back (or a decisive 10-4 win over Saskatchewan. A.possible Key to the final outcome of the men's section will be this evening's game between Alberta and Manitoba, at 8 o'clock at the Lethbridge Curling Club. Dale Duguid, the Manitoba skip, will be thinking about his game with B.C. for some time to come. Leading 9-5 heading home, Duguid gave up a big four counters in the 10th and then saw B.C.'s Larry Davis steal a single in the extra end for the win. Duguid complained about the condition of the ice after his loss saying that it was "so heavy you had to almost throw overhand." His complaint was not singular as a number of skips found the Lethbridge Curling Club ice to be heavy. Meanwhile, Dave Cruickshank's Alberta foursome slipped past New Brunswick 7-6 in the morning draw, but were upset 8-6 by Jim Hill's Saskatchewan quartet in the afternoon. Cruickshank got back into contention with yet another narrow win, 8-7, over New- foundland in the evening. Cruickshank, in winning the game with Newfoundland, was forced to score two on the final end for the win. B.C., before coming up with its win over Manitoba, got past Yukon 9-6 and the Northwest Territories 8-3. Curling continues today at Lethbridge, Fort Macleod and Coaldale setting the stage for Saturday's finals. STANDINGS Alberta B.C. Manitoba P.E.I. Quebec Nova Scotia Onlario Saskatchewan N.W.T.
