University opens season this weekend GARY PAYNTON PHIL LETHAM RICHARD FOGGO JOEY SHACKLEFORD BRENT BURTON Patrol sponsoring Ski Swap The Canadian Ski Patrol, a volunteer public service organization, will be holding a Ski Swap in the College Mall Thursday, Friday and Satur- day The Ski Swap will give the person who wants to sell his used skiing paraphernalia a place to exhibit it. The Patrol will be charging fifty cents for each item brought in and will take a 15% commission on each sale. The sale will give the Patrol, who are a vital part of the ski scene, some money to offset the cost of the first aid equipment they must purchase out of their own pockets. The Ski Swap will be open from 6-9 p.m. Thursday and Friday but will run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Those bringing items in for sale over the three days are reminded to pick up any un- sold items by 6 p.m. on Satur- day. Curling Season is Hera! Come In and See Our Large Selection of CURLING SHOES NOW AT: JOE GREEN'S SHOES Downtown On Sixth Street Pronghorn backcourt ranks with best By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer It's anybody's guess right now as to how the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns will fare in the Canada Wjsst University Athletic Association, but one thing is certain they won't be hurting in the backcourt. The Pronghorns can boast a set of guards which ranks with any in the six team league, so much so that coach Robin Fry may wind up play- ing two of them at the forward position much of the time. Newcomers Gary Paynton, Joey Shackleford and Brent Burton are strictly guards this year, but all star returnee Phil Letham and young Richard Foggo should see quite a bit of action in the corners. Paynton is a 5 ft. 10 in. native of Salmon Arm, B.C. in his first year with the Pronghorns. But he is no newcomer to the game of basketball. While playing for Calgary's Mount Royal College Cougars, he was twice an Alberta College Athletic Conference All Star before spending the last two years in a senior men's league. Most of the ballhandling chores this season will fall upon the speedy redhead. "We'll rely heavily on Gary to bring the ball up the says Fry. "And that is no easy job when you consider the defence they play in this league." Guards play a bigger role on a Fry team than on most clubs, as they form the front line on the full court press, and spearhead a fast breaking attack whenever possible. No one knows that better than Letham, another Salmon Arm native who won a pair of All Star trophies at Mount Royal. Letham averaged 15.7 points per game for the Pronghorns last season, and should do even better this year. He fired in 49 points in two games with Regina over the weekend and his deadly shooting and aggressive defence fit right in with Fry's concept of the game. At 6 ft. 3 in., Letham split his time between forward and guard last season, but the added strength he picked up in a rigorous off season training program may insure that he sees even more time in the corner this time around. While Letham is making the transition from guard to forward, 19 year old Richard Foggo is making the opposite switch. Foggo ranks as perhaps the finest high school ballplayer ever to join the Pronghorns, and his outstanding leaping ability and quickness should provide local fans with some real excitement this season. The 6'0" foot youngster from Bowness High School in Calgary scored 18 points from the forward position against Simon Fraser Clansmen in his first collegiate game, but his ball handling ability makes Fry think he should be spending more time in the backcourt. A pair of exceptionally quick newcomers round out Fry's choices for the guard position. Joey Shackleford was an all star with the LCI Rams in high school, and is now with the Pronghorns after a year with Doug's in the Chinook League. According to Fry, Shackleford is very steady and mature for his 19 years, and gives attacking guards fits with his hard nosed defence. "For a first year player, it's amazing how few mistakes he makes out says Fry. Brent Burton comes to the U of L after playing with the Medicine Hat College Antelopes of the ACAC last season The 21 year old Foremost native is one of the fastest players on the team and excels on defence. These five give Fry a backcourt that will pre- sent lots of problems for opposing clubs throughout the CWUAA season, which opens this weekend when the Pronghorns host the UBC Thunderbirds in a pair of games at the U of L gymnasium. The T-Birds have always been strong at the guard position as well, but they should have their hands full with the Pronghorn press Friday and Saturday. Locals dominate in racquetball Lethbridge is virtually the racquetball capital of Canada. The Lethbridge YMCA Racquetball Club travelled to Montreal for the Canadian Racquetball Championships last Thursday through Sunday and came home with four major championships. Jodie Fry captured the women's singles championship while Wayne Bowes picked up his second consecutive Canadian men's singles title. Bowes teamed with Bob Daku to capture the men's doubles title and another Lethbridge pair, Tim Filuk and Logan Tait, won the senior men's championship. Filuk placed second in the senior men's singles, losing out to George Morfitt of Vancouver. All the championship games were on the best two out of three basis and the Lethbridge club's victories were all in the Canadian closed division. Steve Keeley took the Canadian open title, defeating fellow San Diego player Steve Strandemo The YMCA club will be hosting the closed city cham- pionships this weekend, slated for Friday, Saturday and Sun- day. Oakland A's divide in Series cash NEW YORK (AP) Winn- ing the World Series was worth to each member of Oakland A's who were voted a full share, baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn said Monday. The A's, American League penant winners, divided a record team share of If you can't beat them-r-then WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (CP) Little League authorities have prohibited all foreign teams, including Canadian, from com- peting in the Little League world series. It means that for only the second time in seven series, a U.S. team will win in 1975. In Taipei. a spokesman for the Taiwanese Little League, which has won five of the last six little league world series, ex- pressed "deep regret" over the decision. Hsieh Kuo-cheng, chairman of the Taiwan Baseball Association, chided the Little League for poor sportsmanship. "If they have decided to bar foreign teams from the world series for the purpose of letting American boys win the championship, it would be a regret- table he said. "By denying them (Taiwan boys) the chance to distinguish themselves at William- sport will certainly dampen their en- thusiasm in the sport to a great extent." A Little League spokesman in William- sport cited travel costs for foreign entries and the nationalistic approach to baseball taken abroad Authorities said regional championship series will be continued in Canada, the Far East, Europe and Latin America. for their five-game victory over Los Angeles Dodgers and voted 31 full shares. Fifteen of those shares went to players who were also among Oakland's 1973 and 1972 world cham- pions. For those 15 players, Oak- land's three world champion- ships have been worth a total payoff of The payoff for 1974 was the second highest in baseball history, about less than the A's shares in 1973. That year, Oakland players voted 27 full shares compared with 31 for 1974. Among the full shares voted by the A's were three to non- uniformed personnel, their trainer, equipment manager and travelling secretary. The A's voted half-shares to coaches Bobby Winkles and Bobby Hofman, who joined the team in mid-season. Irv Noren and Vern Hoscheit, the coaches they replaced, each got The losing Dodgers received a record each with 32 full shares. Baltimore Orioles and Pitts- burgh Pirates, championship series losers to the A's and Dodgers, received almost identical payoffs. The Orioles voted 30 full shares of each and the 31 full Pirate shares were worth apiece. The second and third place finishers in each of baseball's four divisions also shared in the richest World Series payoff ever. The total player purse was topp- ing last year's mark of Canadians near-perfect NEW YORK
