Fort Riley soldiers appreciate K-State The athletes and base personnel have formed a bond. ■

BY KELLIS ROBINETT The Wichita Eagle

MANHATTAN — Robert Ricks is an Army major stationed at Fort Riley. He is the operations officer for the First Battalion, 18th Infantry Regiment, and he has seen action in almost every recent war the U.S. military has been a part of. He was there for Desert Storm, he’s been to Iraq three times and he served in Afghanistan. He loves his job and the service he provides his country. But not every day is perfect. Like everyone who works for a living, he sometimes needs a pick-me-up. One thing that provides motivation: Kansas State athletics. A short drive to Manhattan, or turning on the TV for a K-State basketball game and seeing the crest of his fellow soldiers on the Wildcats’ jerseys, is all it takes. “It’s awesome to see those guys on the field and on the court are playing with a part of you and your unit on their uniform,” Ricks said. “It pumps you up. It makes you feel good about what you do and it gives you more incentive to go out there and work as hard as you can.” Lt. Col. Scott Nolan has

Hein goes out a 3-time winner BY TONY ADAME The Wichita Eagle

SALINA — Andale-Garden Plain softball coach Doris Hein stood to the side of the ponytailed, crying mass of players she’d guided to another state title on Saturday and dipped her head when she smiled, as if to hide her joy. To not be blatant about how she felt about all the things happening around her. Her face, kissed from the sun of her final spring as a coach, hid mostly behind a

large pair of sunglasses and a ballcap as she talked about how the Indians had won their third straight state championship, this one a 3-1 Class 4A victory over DeSoto. Aware of what would now ultimately define her career — a dynasty built on the right arm of star pitcher Sydnee Eck — she admitted what she knew in her heart. “I wanted this just as bad as any of them,” Hein said. “For the end of me as a coach … for the end of my career this is a great way to go out. I wouldn’t have been disappointed if we’d have lost two times today, but this is special.”

After rallying to beat undefeated Labette County 5-2 in Saturday’s semifinal, Andale-Garden Plain trotted Eck out for the third time in two days to face DeSoto. “I was a little worried that last game about her,” Hein said. “But I’d hate take the ball out of her hands. Not now.” Eck, with a heavily taped right forearm from stress fractures, got an early lead in the second inning thanks to an RBI double from fellow senior Bailey VenJohn and an RBI single from Julie Lies. “It’s hard to explain how we

Andretti aims to win wide-open Indy 500 The driver from a racing family wants to make his mark. ■

BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Marco Andretti knows how much heartache his family has suffered at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He needs no reminders that IndyCar could use an American superstar, and with his famous last name, he is quite aware of the hope that maybe he can be the one to elevate this attentionstarved series. Andretti None of that matters to Andretti as he heads into the Indianapolis 500. He believes he can win today’s race – “it’s going to be our race to lose,” he said – and he wants it, badly. But Andretti wants it for himself, for his own career, and not because of what it would mean to his family or for IndyCar. Mario Andretti won in 1969, and no Andretti has done it again in 65 starts and many of those races were devastating near-misses. “That’s not my approach to the event. My approach is I want to win our Super Bowl,” Andretti said. “I put that pressure on myself. I don’t want to do it because he did it and my dad didn’t, that’s all bonus. Do I think we can?

La’tiyera Yeargin feels like a different person when she’s on a track.

championships. The Newton sophomore won her first state titles, taking home the Class 5A 100-meter dash and then anchoring the winning leg on the Railroaders’ 400 relay team. She also took third in the 200. “This just feels amazing,” Yeargin said. “It’s like all your hard work finally pays off and it makes you want to work for it even more next year.” But it’s when she thinks about next year when the other side of Yeargin is exposed. She’s never had a foundation in her home life. Year-

gin’s relationship with her mother, who lives in Topeka, is strained. That’s why she moved in with her grandmother in Newton at the start of high school. But even that didn’t work out, leading to a brief stay with Ted Remsberg, her track coach at Newton, and ultimately into the house of All Nations Pentecostal Church pastor Larry Lee for this past semester. That’s why Yeargin never wants to leave the track. It’s the only place she knows

Djokovic bids for fourth straight Slam BY HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press

PARIS — As daylight disappeared and wind whipped loose dirt around the court, Novak Djokovic watched one last ace fly off Roger Federer’s racket and end their thrill-a-minute semifinal at the 2011 French Open. It’s been nearly a year since that evening, and Djokovic hasn’t lost a Grand Slam match since. He’s won 21 in a row, earning championships at Wimbledon in July, the U.S. Open in September, and the Australian Open in January. If Djokovic can prolong that run on the red clay of Roland Garros over the next two weeks, he will become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win four consecutive major tennis tournaments.

ing not to expend too much energy pondering before the French Open, which starts today. “It would definitely mean the world to me … but I haven’t thought about that too much, because I do not want to put too much pressure on myself,” the No. 1-ranked Djokovic said, then added with a laugh: “Pressure that I don’t need at this moment, because I already have enough.” He insists he wants to view this tournament the way he would any year. Federer’s take? Essentially: Good luck with that, pal. “The hard part is (the) same for everyone: Every point you play, every game you play, the pressure you face, and just answering the questions time and time again,” said Federer, who twice fell one match shy of four Grand Slam titles in a row, losing in the French Open final to Rafael Nadal in 2006 and 2007.

A recipe to make IndyCar relevant BY PAUL NEWBERRY Associated Press

NDIANAPOLIS — James Hinchcliffe can’t understand it. In this sports-crazed nation, there are skilled athletes who willingly get behind the wheel of exotic-looking race cars and risk their lives at more than 200 mph, yet the interest level in what they’re doing 364 days out of the year can be measured on a scale that starts at Zero, goes up to Negligible and roughly peaks out at Where’s Danica. “IndyCar is the best-kept series in sports,” Hinchcliffe moaned Thursday from the infield at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “It’s infuriating.” For a few hours today, he and 32 other drivers will get a sense of what it’s like to be part of an actual, big-time sport. The stands will be (mostly) filled with real, live people, hundreds of thousands of them, in fact. The television ratings will be measured in whole numbers instead of fractions. And the one who crosses the line first at the Indy 500 will get a bit of the Kardashian treatment – or at least hear his or her name uttered on SportsCenter. Then comes Monday, when IndyCar racing slinks back to a not-so-appealing club, the one it shares with other fading sports genres. The America’s Cup. Baseball’s All-Star Game. The Penn Relays. Heavyweight title fights. The Cotton Bowl. You know, games and events that fans once paid attention to, but are now on a path carved out by the dodo bird. “If people would just come to a race,” pleaded Hinchcliffe, who might very well be on his way to stardom if only he could dribble a basketball or throw a football as well as he drives a high-powered machine. “It’s such a cool product.” To be truly cool, there’s got to be some people who care. (Sit down, gearheads, we’re not talking to you.) For IndyCar to regain anything resembling the gravitas it had during that glorious era when icons such as A.J. Foyt and Mario Andretti reigned over the Brickyard, there must be some serious changes. So, we went to the ones who have more of a vested

All 33 of them were available for a couple of hours Thursday, the perfect time to get their take on curing the ills of IndyCar before the sport flat-lines altogether. The ideas ranged from piein-the-sky (several suggested putting all the races on national TV, which IndyCar would surely agree to if there was a major network that actually thought it would attract more viewers than poker) to those who feel better merchandising is the key (”I want to go in Toys `R’ Us and be able to buy a toy Indy car,” rookie driver Josef Newgarten said.) We took the best of what was offered and threw in a proposal of our own, all with the idea of turning IndyCar into a major player instead of just a niche: ■ Speed, speed, speed. This one seems the most obvious, but the latest generation of cars introduced this year are plodding around the 2 1⁄2 -mile oval at slightly slower speeds than the clunky relics they replaced. While NASCAR has always been about rubbin’ and racin’, Indy was built on going faster than ever before. With an increased emphasis on safety, series officials began applying the brakes when qualifying speeds crept into 235-mph range. Well, it’s time to give `em the

gas again. “More speed. That’s all we need,” Townsend Bell said. “You can’t do anything else until you improve the product.” ■ Take the gloves off, or at least the muzzles. While no sports league tolerates open criticism of its officials, IndyCar would be well served to give its drivers a little more leeway with their lips. There’s some intriguing personalities in the garage, from the social media-savvy Hinchcliffe to three-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves (yes, he’s won something beyond a televised dance competition). Let’s hear what these guys have to say, really have to say, even if does leave some bigwigs a bit red in the face. ■ See you next week at this same time. There’s absolutely no consistency to the start times on this year’s schedule. The gamut runs from 11 a.m. ET (when the green flag drops at Indy) to 11:55 p.m. (when, because of the time difference, a new street race in China begins for its TV audience in the States). In all, there are eight different start times for the 16 races, which makes it tough for those at home to keep up, even if they could find the NBC Sports Network on their dials. “The key is to make it easier to follow,” Justin Wilson said. ■ Expansion, please.

Everyone knows that 16 races are not enough, which is why IndyCar officials are actively pursuing more events. They’ve already announced a new street race in Houston for 2013 and are downright desperate to get more ovals on the schedule. “We’re out of the public’s eye too much,” second-generation driver Graham Rahal complained. Also, there are just five oval events this season, which has left an unacceptable tilt in favor of road and street courses. That must be addressed, taking into account the kind of ovals that are courted. Tony Kanaan has the right idea when he said there should be more mile-and-under tracks, where the best racers can really shine. “On the big tracks, it’s just flat out all the time,” he said. “You don’t need any talent for that.” And here’s one idea from the reporter’s notebook: ■ Lure a big-name driver away from NASCAR. While money is certainly tight, IndyCar would be wellserved to pool its resources and try to raid one of the good ol’ boys. No, we’re not talking about trying to bring back Danica Patrick. That ship has sailed. And a megastar along the lines of Jimmie Johnson or Dale Earnhardt Jr. is aiming way too high. But maybe someone such as Kurt Busch, who took a lesser ride after he was let go by Penske Racing

SUNDAY, MAY 27, 2012 ■ THE WICHITA EAGLE 3D

Kemnitz believes in NCAA shot M ost seasons, the baseball power rankings (RPI) hate Wichita State. The Shockers are used to being the team with a lot of wins and a weak RPI. The situation is reversed this season. After years of getting hammered by the RPI, it is hard to blame WSU pitching coach Brent Kemnitz for arguing the Shockers are due for some help. “We went out and did all the things we were told to do,” Kemnitz said. “We got key wins. The Valley’s the best it’s been. We have a good RPI. I think we should be in.” The WSU profile is more like a middle-of-the-road team from a power conference than a top team in a lesser conference. WSU is 35-25 and it finished third in the Missouri Valley Conference. Its RPI ranking of No. 44, entering the weekend, and its strength of schedule ranking No. 40 puts the Shockers in a group that often earns NCAA at-large bids. The MVC is ranked No. 6 nationally. In 2010, WSU went 41-19 and shared the Missouri Valley Conference title. Its RPI ranked No. 63 and it stayed home. Last season, WSU went 39-26, finished second in the MVC and second in the conference tournament. An RPI ranked No. 73 doomed post-season chances. For two seasons, the RPI went against WSU. It appears to work for the Shockers this season, although it is impossible to know how significantly. “We’re the team that we hated the last two years,” Kemnitz said. “We need to be that team that gets in and

PAUL SUELLENTROP WSU NOTES they’re looking at us and saying ‘I hate Wichita State.’ That was us in 2010 and 2011.” The Shockers didn’t help their case with an uninspiring 0-2 performance last week in the MVC Tournament. On Wednesday, after a 7-0 loss to Missouri State, nobody wanted to talk about at-large chances. After a few days, the big picture began to emerge. No. 47 College of Charleston went 0-2 in the Southern Conference. No. 48 Texas went 0-2 in the Big 12. No. 42 Louisville went 1-2 in the Big East. Some conference tournament results will help WSU. Some will hurt, if teams with better resumes are upset and hand automatic bids to weaker teams. The MVC didn’t help itself last week with Creighton and Southern Illinois making it more difficult for WSU and Indiana State to grab one of the 34 at-large spots. However, WSU’s resume is more than two losses at Hammons Field. Kemnitz knows WSU missed a chance to make a stronger statement last week. He is also right to say WSU’s RPI is worthy of consideration. Last season, five teams with RPI ranked between Nos. 43-54 earned at-large bids. Three teams

between 40-50 did not, all three with losing conference records in a power conference. Since 2007, 24 teams with RPI ranks between 40-54 made it. Five of those teams went winless in their conference tournaments. The Shockers will practice today and get ready for Monday’s selection show (11 a.m., ESPNU). “I know what we’re up against,” Kemnitz said. “I don’t know why everybody just rolls over and acts like it’s over.”

Take another shot — The consensus around Hammons Field last week was that the MVC would be crazy to pass on Dallas Baptist a second time as an affiliate member. The MVC is at a high point with its baseball power ranking and could get as many as two or three at-large teams in the NCAA regionals, in part thanks to 21 games against Dallas Baptist. Athletic directors recommended that conference presidents discuss the matter during their meetings in June. Dallas Baptist, an independent, played seven MVC schools this season as part of a trial period set up to give both parties a chance to consider membership. Last fall, however, Dallas Baptist jumped at a chance to join the Western Athletic Conference, which offered immediate membership and better travel. This spring, Texas State, Texas-Arlington and Texas-San Antonio announced plans to leave the WAC after the 2012-13 school year, likely putting Dallas Baptist back on the market for a baseball home. “We’re in favor of including Dallas Baptist,” Indiana State athletic director Ron

He said he’s been faster at nearly every track he’s gone to this season and doesn’t expect that to change in Charlotte. Hendrick teammate Jeff Gordon has seen things building with Earnhardt’s team. A year ago, Earnhardt came close to winning because of fuel mileage strategy, Gordon said. This time, Earnhardt’s got one of the fastest, most consistent cars in the garage and is capable of outrunning anyone. “All that builds confidence,” Gordon said. “And it just makes your team that much stronger and allows you to go to the next race with a shot at winning,” Gordon said. That could apply to all Hendrick Motorsports teams. The longtime Sprint Cup program has been on a major roll the past few weeks. Five-time champion Jimmie Johnson won owner Rick Hendrick’s 200th race at Darlington two weeks ago. Johnson followed that with a win in the All-Star race here last Saturday night. Even Earnhardt picked up a trophy last week, winning the Sprint Showdown to get into the All-Star race.

six of the full-time entries were from Penske and Andretti Autosport. Then came Carb Day, and the Hondas came to life. Chip Ganassi teammates Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon led the leaderboard, with Andretti landing third on the final speed chart as the fastest Chevy driver. “Maybe some sandbagging?” Franchitti wondered as Andretti slid into the seat next to him following their final on-track session before the race. “Do you really think we’re all going to show what we can do?” The return of Chevrolet and addition to Lotus has renewed rivalries this season in IndyCar, and the fight between Chevy and Honda has been on display since the track opened May 9. Chevy lost two appeals in its fight to prevent Honda from getting a new compressor cover for its turbocharger, and the final decision came the day before practice officially opened.

Honda then dominated on the track, particularly Josef Newgarden and Bryan Clauson, the two young American drivers for Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing. But there was skepticism that the Chevy teams were simply holding back, and that sure seemed to be the case after qualifying. There’s been no speculation whatsoever about the two Lotus entries, which have been so far off the pace there have been calls for IndyCar to park Simona de Silvestro and Jean Alesi after the start. The engine is a tremendous handicap to Alesi, the 47-year-old former Formula One driver who has never before raced an IndyCar, never raced on an oval and has been only sporadically racing in anything at all the last several years. On Friday, his last day in the car before the race, Alesi was clocked at 204.452 mph – almost 10 miles slower than the last non-Lotus car, and a long way off Franchitti’s 222.360.

INDY From Page 1D race in a very long time. Engine competition for the first time in six years and the introduction of a new car has widened the pool of potential winners, and there’s no clear favorite. “I think we’re going to see the best race we’ve had in at least a decade,” said Roger Penske, winner of 15 Indy 500s and the team owner of pole-sitter Ryan Briscoe. Penske is undefeated this season, as Helio Castroneves and points leader Will Power have combined to win the first four races. And with Chevrolet power, Penske drivers have swept all five poles so far this season. So it seemed to be business as usual on pole day, when Chevrolet clearly had the edge. The team put nine drivers inside the top 10, and all

Prettyman said. “They’ve proven their value with their high RPI.” Dallas Baptist, which played in a super regional last season, is regarded as a lock for an at-large bid. Its RPI rank of No. 25 would be the highest in the MVC. The addition of a ninth team would also help scheduling by filling another weekend and giving every team four home and four road series. “I think you try to add quality to the league,” Creighton athletic director Bruce Rasmussen said. “We’ve had this year 21 games against a top-25 RPI team, and that’s helped our league immensely. That’s been Dallas Baptist over the years.”

Royals pull out of latest tailspin BY BOB DUTTON Kansas City Star

BALTIMORE — This stops the bleeding a little and, just maybe, offers a sign of better times ahead. Eric Hosmer had three hits Saturday afternoon, including a tie-breaking RBI single in the eighth inning that enabled the Royals to ROYALS 4 complete a 4-3 comeback victory ORIOLES 3 over the Baltimore Orioles. “It’s something beautiful to see,” third baseman Mike Moustakas said, “when Hos is driving in runs.” Hosmer’s started the comeback with an RBI single in the fifth and scored the tying run in the seventh. His big day vaulted him past the dreaded .200 Mendoza Line for the first time since April 26. He’s now at .206. “Yeah,” Hosmer said. “We’re not going back under (the line).” Jonathan Broxton closed out the victory by capping a run of 32⁄3 scoreless innings by four relievers after Felipe Paulino gave up three runs in 51⁄3 innings. Greg Holland (1-2) got the victory. Broxton got his ninth save in 11 chances and a little payback for blowing a two-run lead to the Orioles in the ninth inning on May 16 at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals eventually lost that game 4-3 in 15 innings, and it started a skid of seven losses in nine games, including a miserable 8-2 effort Friday in the series opener that prompted a bluntly colorful postgame scolding from manager Ned Yost. “That’s the most I’ve ever been yelled at,” one player said, “and we deserved it. It was important to come back today with a better effort.” Still, the victory didn’t come easily. Robert Andino started the Orioles’ ninth with a single to right, and the Royals settled for just one out — a force at second — when second baseman Johnny Giavotella bobbled Xavier Avery’s potential double-play grounder. The Royals got another out — another force at second — on J.J. Hardy’s slow grounder to short. And it was Hosmer, fittingly, who gloved Nick Markakis’ sharp grounder to first and turned it into the final out. “It was better,” Yost said. “It hasn’t been easy for us. We’re still grinding out Ws when we win — like today.” Moustakas started the winning rally with a sharp single that beat the infield shift. Moustakas went to second when pitcher Pedro Strop (3-2) bobbled Jeff Francoeur’s potential double-play hopper and had to settle for an out at first. Strop walked Alex Gordon before Giavotella loaded the bases with a single through the right side. Hosmer delivered the go-ahead run with a slicing bloop to left for his third hit of the game.

scratch as he continues to struggle with his vision while wearing contacts. Espinosa doubled off Mike Minor to lead off the game and scored on Adam LaRoche’s fly ball. Espinosa pushed the lead to 4-0 with his three-run homer off Minor in the second.

Rondo leads Celtics victory BY JIMMY GOLEN Associated Press

BOSTON — To Doug Collins, Boston’s Big Three is already a memory. “I don’t look at them as the Big Three. I 76ERS 75 look at them CELTICS 85 as the Championship Four,” the Philadelphia coach said. “Because if you’re going to leave Rondo out, you’re making a huge mistake.” Rajon Rondo helped his aging teammates keep their season going Saturday night, finishing with 18 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds in Game 7 against the 76ers to lead Boston to an 85-75 victory and into an Eastern Conference finals matchup with the Miami Heat. The Celtics will open the third round of the NBA playoffs in Miami on Monday night. “I’ve already packed,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “We’ll be ready. It’s going to

We’ll be ready on Monday.” Bouncing back from his worst game of the playoffs – and snapping out of a 32-minute slump in which he

had just two assists and five points – Rondo scored nine straight Boston points after Paul Pierce fouled out to help the Celtics turn a three-point edge into a double-digit lead. Rondo had 11 points in the

fourth quarter, including his first three-pointer in five games, made all four of his free throws down the stretch and grabbed his 10th rebound in the final minute – chucking it over his head into the frontcourt to help the Celtics run down the clock. “He really came through,” Sixers guard Jrue Holiday said. “He put the team on his back.” Andre Iguodala scored 18 points, and Holiday and Elton Brand had 15 apiece for the 76ers, who eliminated the top-seeded Chicago Bulls in the first round but couldn’t do the same with the Celtics. Kevin Garnett had 18 points and 13 rebounds for Boston, and Ray Allen hit a pair of fourth-quarter threepointers after missing his first five attempts. “Ray is the ultimate gunslinger,” Rivers said. “That’s what makes great players great. I was a basketball player someday, and I would have never taken that shot.”

Blacksher, Hinson an effective combo Since arriving in Wichita, Hinson has exposed a possible mistake made by the Padres, who released Hinson after the 2010 season while he was recovering from an arm injury. Hinson tied for the team lead with 11 wins last season, boasting a 3.35 ERA in 20 starts. It has taken two starts in 2012 for Hinson to display the possibility of improvement upon those numbers. He has 12 strikeouts in 12 1⁄3 innings while surrendering six hits and zero walks, all significantly better than his 2011 rates. His ERA is 0.73, and some in the Wingnuts organization have mentioned the possibility of Hinson returning to affiliated ball. "He’s got good stuff, he’s got good movement," second baseman Jake Kahaulelio said. "Hopefully we’ve got him for the whole season." Blacksher has been arguably the most valuable pitcher in Wingnuts history. He’s

second on the franchise career wins list with 17, he’s 11-0 at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium and he is the only Wingnut to pitch in the 2009 and 2011 postseasons. Blacksher started on opening day this season and earned the victory, but Hinson pitched just as well the following night, cementing his status as co-ace and giving the Wingnuts a pair of pitchers with varying skills but comparable mentalities. "I keep comparing (Hinson) and (Blacksher)," Hooper said. "They’re very similar. I think they’re so locked in at what they’re doing and what they’re trying to achieve that (the score) doesn’t matter."

Mike Morgan, who is to participate in designated military days on campus and the commander of the first combat aviation brigade at interact with players and Fort Riley, regularly interacts coaches regularly. Once a year, each regiment with the K-State volleyball will invite its partnered team team. He is a big fan of coach Suzie Fritz and thinks his to the base and let student-

soldiers can learn as much from student-athletes as they can from other soldiers. He points out that a K-State volleyball player faces a stressful schedule. Not only must they develop their athletic skills, but they have to tackle schoolwork while traveling. “Selflessness, professionalism, loyalty, team unity … they have it all and are at the top of their games,” Morgan said. “We use the same team skills in what we do.” K-State players would laugh at the statement. They each recently toured Fort Riley, and were blown away by what soldiers face. They saw helicopters up close and even got the chance to be a pilot in a flight simulator. “We got to go through the ropes and see how difficult it was to manage those machines,” said Kathleen Ludwig, a K-State junior. “I think I killed us three times. It was terrible, but it really emphasized what they do and how much time and attention it takes to do their job.” “It really put things in perspective,” said Tristan McCarty, a K-State sophomore. “Our lives don’t compare to theirs. Their job is to keep us free. We get to play a sport. We are all so thankful for what they do.” Most universities support the military in some way, but few do so as much as K-State. Both Ludwig and McCarty said they couldn’t have experienced their visit to Fort Riley had they played volleyball elsewhere, and think they will appreciate Memorial Day more than they ever have because of the visit. Still, it took time for Fort Riley and K-State athletics to build the partnerships they have today. Though Fort

he obvious similiarities between Derek Blacksher and Ryan Hinson essentially end after it’s pointed out that both pitch for the Wingnuts. Blacksher is a right-hander, Hinson a lefty. Blacksher is listed generously at 6-foot and Hinson is 6-3. Blacksher has never pitched in affiliated baseball, while Hinson reached high Class-A in the San Diego Padres organization. Even their pitching styles are different — Blacksher frequently challenges hitters with high fastballs and Hinson takes a more scientific approach, setting hitters up with any pitch before retiring them the same way. Blacksher and Hinson don’t blend nicely atop Wichita’s starting rotation just because of their complementary traits, though. They share an intangible quality that Wingnuts manager Kevin Hooper admires even more than their ability to get hitters out. "Those are two guys I never have to worry about," Hooper said. "I know what I’m going to get from them every single night and I don’t have to worry about them. They’re not always going to have a great night, but more often than not they’re going to give themselves a chance to win."

WINGNUTS NOTES

Lineup change — Jared McDonald began the season hitting second in the batting order, an easily defenseable choice because he bats lefthanded and can take advantage of the hole on the right side with a runner on first base. After six games, Hooper moved McDonald to the lower half of the order to insert Kahaulelio in the No. 2 slot. Kahaulelio, a right-handed batter, uses a more patient approach and supplements his bat-handling ability with occasional power. He showed that in a two-homer game

Wednesday against New Jersey. "I’m going to keep him there, I think," Hooper said. "(McDonald) is a little more of a free swinger, and I think he can help us later on in the lineup. In the middle there is where we’ve been struggling." Big league challenge — Angel Berroa returned to Wichita last week for the first time since 2004, when he played with the Wranglers on a rehabilitation assignment from the Kansas City Royals. The previous year, Berroa was the American League Rookie of the Year with the Royals. But he never again reached the heights he attained in 2003, and he struggled to find a permanent home in affiliated ball in recent years before settling in New Jersey this season. Berroa had two hits against Hinson on Wednesday and was 7 for 12 in the series with a home run. "I want to get him out," Hinson said. "He’s a pretty good hitter. He complements their lineup pretty well at the top. Coming into the series, that was one of the guys we talked about. You have to get the leadoff hitter out because he can make it a 2-0 ballgame real quick." Riley is located 12 miles west of campus, and K-State has long shown respect to the military, it wasn’t until the Wildcats men’s basketball team built a relationship with a military unit that the two sides became so close. When Nolan approached Martin about a partnership, the only other such partnership between a regiment and a team existed with football. Now, the practice has become so popular that if a battalion tries to partner with a K-State team, there is little to choose from. Most club teams and cheerleading groups have military partners now. All of the partnerships were initiated by Fort Riley, but K-State is completely receptive. K-State basketball pays for military crests to be sewn on its jerseys, K-State baseball sometimes wears a camouflage uniform to pay respect and coaches and players are often seen wearing military hats and clothing. “They really lean forward to do it right and are so appreciative of the soldiers and the sacrifices they make to provide our country freedom,” Morgan said. Soldiers at Fort Riley respond by wearing K-State apparel whenever they can, both on base and in duty. They are partners, after all. “It is kind of understood that K-State is our team,” Nolan said. “That’s rare. Everyone in the military is from all over the country. The local team is not always the favorite, but everyone around here has taken K-State into their hearts because of this partnership.” Check Kellis Robinett’s K-Stated blog at blogs.kansas.com/kstated.

Himantopus mexicanus Many shorebirds look alike, but it’s difficult to confuse a black-necked stilt with any other species. Its vibrant, super-sized pink legs and black and white body are distinct. Blacknecks are primarily found in central and western Kansas, where they often nest in wetlands. A drive through Quivira and Cheyenne Bottoms usually provides many easy views of the unique birds. Walk within a few yards of a stilt’s nest and they’ll usually create an unforgettable racket. About 100 years ago, the birds were pretty rare because commercial hunters shot them to sell their colorful plumage. Now they’re common.

All set for channel catfish ■ Spring Hill man devises system for setting lines. BY MICHAEL PEARCE The Wichita Eagle

L DORADO — Fishing is full of good top-water bites. Nothing is as classic as a bass or trout rising to take a fly or floating lure. Few things are as exciting as tossing a cigar-sized popper into a school of huge wipers. Steve Green prefers his big flathead and channel catfish on the surface, too. “It’s all about when they hear that bait splashing on the surface,” said Green, of Spring Hill. “They can’t resist it.” Green’s records going into a recent Check out a photo gallery at fishing trip at El Dorado Kansas.com Reservoir were impressive. Nine trips this spring totaled about 722 pounds of fish. A week earlier he caught flatheads of 16, 26 and 51 pounds one night at Hillsdale Reservoir, a few miles from his home. He credits a good knowledge of catfish, and using Topcats, a set line system he’s designed and markets. Topcats are a combination of a strap-on mounting bracket, a yard-long composite pole, some line of near towtruck proportions, a big hook (for channel cat), another big hook (for flatheads) and thick rubber strapping to tire fish the size of St. Bernards. “My biggest on a Topcat is 67 pounds, but a customer caught one that was 70,” Green said as he boated across the reservoir. “I know they’ll handle even bigger fish.” It’s been about 10 years since Green got the idea of portable limb lines, when “there never seemed to be a limb where I needed one.” After a few years of trial and error, he began selling Topcats online in 2010. Prices range from a single set for $35 to about $250 for a dozen. Green also does some guiding with his set-lines and he welcomes the chance to take his show on the road. “Wherever somebody wants to fish, I’ll pretty much go there,” he said. “I know I can go to about any lake and catch top-water fish, not just the lake that’s closest to my house.” The recent trip was his second time on El Dorado, but he instantly went to the lake’s upper end. He explained that flatheads were probably moving from the main lake up connecting rivers and streams for the spawn. That evening, Green checked eight lines he’d set earlier for himself, adding bait if needed. Further up the lake he helped a guest make eight more sets. The chore has gotten tougher since recent regulations prohibit anglers from catching and transporting green sunfish, Green’s favorite bait. He’d been forced to drive about 50 miles out of his way to spend about $70 at a commercial bait dealer. Many of the fish were too small and bluegill. “See that?” he said holding

SETTING LINES FOR FLATHEADS Steve Green offers advice for those wanting to set lines for big flathead catfish. ■ Now is the time. Warm water temperatures this spring have the fish ahead of schedule for their annual spawn movements. ■ Reservoirs offer great chances at really huge fish. Green thinks many Kansas lakes could have fish over 100 pounds. ■ The best place to set lines is in “the transition zone,” where the lake narrows before it meets a river or creek. ■ Most fish are caught in water 10 feet deep or less. “Three to seven feet seem to be like magic,” he said. “I don’t catch many outside that range.” ■ Big channel cat are often caught on sets near a lot of flooded brush. Big flatheads

prefer places like big log jams or undercut banks, where they can find places to spawn. ■ His best sets are not far Topcats. Nervousness was on from an original river or creek channel. He really does wellface as usually upbeat Green’s two channels meet. to where guest’s lines began his ■ Think big for big fish. His up empty. come Topcats come with a 14⁄0 circle cook for flatheads and he’ll often bait one with a 10-inch green sunfish, carp or drum. ■ He often mixes big and small baits while guiding to insure some kind of action for clients. In July, when the flathead bite is largely over, he’ll go to three-inch long baits for high success on channel cats. ■ Ideal times are when the lake is rising, a slight breeze is blowing and it is the dark phase of the moon. High winds are about all that will keep him home.

Finally one the last rods up a six-inch bluegill. “A fivepound flathead can easily eat held a five-pound flathead. “That puts my streak of 70 that, man. I like big baits for big flatheads but now you just in a row without going fishtake what you can get.” Heading to the ramp at dusk, Green was met by rising waves that didn’t help his confidence. “The wind is my nemesis, dude,” he said. “If there’s a lot of noise on the surface the fish can’t hear my baits.” He shook his head in disgust when he awoke in the middle of the night and winds were still strong. At dawn, Green met up with Darrell and Chris Conrade, a pair of Topcat customers from Newton. Russ Vanover was with them. Green followed them to where they’d set top-water baits the day before. Three flatheads were amid their combined 24 lines. The biggest was about 12 pounds. No catfish were waiting when Green checked his eight

some big fish up here.” Two days later the winds finally laid to a whisper. The following morning, in the same basic area, Chris Conrade found a 45-pound flathead thrashing and waiting at the end of one of his Topcat sets.

Dufner has 1-stroke lead over Johnson at Colonial feet from the flag. Johnson, within a stroke of the lead after a 17-foot birdie at the par-3 16th, followed Dufner at No. 17 with a shot to the same spot – his ball up and stopped against the one already on the green. After a rules official sorted out the marks, Johnson curled in a birdie putt. Dufner then did the same to keep his lead. When his final tee shot of the day went way left, closer to the 10th fairway than the 18th, Dufner got his next shot on the green and two-putted from 68 feet to save par. Dufner has led or shared the lead after 12 of his last 35 rounds, including five of the last seven. Before winning at New Orleans on April 29, the 35-year-old Dufner was winless in his previous 163 PGA Tour starts. He then took a week off to get married, returned to play at The Players Championship before winning the Nelson.

Jason Dufner matched playing partner Zach Johnson’s birdie putt on the 17th hole Saturday, then overcame a wayward final tee shot to save par and keep the lead at the Colonial. Slowed by two late bogeys, Dufner shot a 4-under 66 in the third round for a 15-under 195 total. That put him a stroke ahead of Johnson, who shot 65 to set up what could basically be a match-play final group today for the winner’s plaid jacket. Tom Gillis was a distant third at 7 under after a 69. Dufner, the winner last week in the Byron Nelson Championship about 30 miles away, is trying to win for the third time in five weeks. He also is trying to do something only Ben Hogan has done. Hogan, Dufner’s hero, is the only player to win both PGA Tour events in the Dallas-Fort

Zach Johnson blasts out of a bunker on the eighth hole during the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth on Saturday. Worth area in the same year. When he did it in 1946, they weren’t played in consecutive weeks. The last player to win in consecutive weeks on the PGA

Tour was Tiger Woods in 2009. Nobody won more than two tournaments last season. After bogeys at Nos. 14 and 16, Dufner’s approach at the 379-yard 17th rolled about 8

Bo Van Pelt had his streak of 13 consecutive sub-par rounds at Hogan’s Alley end with a 71. But he was fourth at 204. Johnson wore a plaid-collared shirt for the third round. The last of his seven PGA Tour victories came two years ago when he slipped on a plaid jacket at Colonial. When Dufner and Johnson completed their first nine holes Saturday, they were tied at 13 under and had a fivestroke lead on the rest of the field. Dufner then had three straight birdies. Dufner made a 20-foot birdie putt at the 386-yard 10th hole, where Johnson had his first two-putt of the round – from nearly 51 feet – to save par. At the straight 630-yard 11th, Dufner hit an approach from 108 yards inside 5 feet for a birdie. Johnson twoputted from 7 feet for par. Johnson drove into a fairway bunker at No. 12 but saved par with pitch shot

inside 2 feet. Dufner got a break when his tee shot rolled through a bunker there and his approach to 4 feet for birdie to get to 16 under. Senior PGA Championship – Roger Chapman shot a 7-under 64 to take a five-stroke lead into the final round in Benton Harbor, Mich. Chapman finished the day at 14-under par. John Cook began the round tied with Chapman for the lead, but couldn’t keep pace with the Englishman and settled for a 69 to drop into second place at Harbor Shores. Chapman’s 54-hole score of 199 tied the tournament record set by Sam Snead in 1973, although Snead was 17 under when he set the mark. Steve Pate had a 67 to join 66-year-old Hale Irwin at 7 under. Irwin made a triple bogey on the par-3 fourth, but played well on the back nine and shot 69.

ANDALE From Page 1D approach (championships),” VenJohn said. “The best way I could put it is we always play like champions. We play like we’ve already won.” DeSoto answered back in the third with an RBI double from Cassidy Berry. “We just couldn’t string together hits when we needed to,” DeSoto coach Junelle Woolery said. “(Andale) is just a great team with a great pitcher.” Andale scored the game’s final run in the fifth when Hein’s daughter, Molly, led off with a single and scored on a fielder’s choice. “I’m happy for my daughter, of course,” Hein said. “But when they’re on the ballfield, I feel like they all classify as my kids.” Eck closed out the title in the seventh with a pair of a strikeouts and a groundout. And as Hein’s career came to a close, Eck admitted to a change of heart when it came to her career — she’d previously stated that she didn’t want to play softball in college. The weekend run to the state title, however, may have sparked something. “It does make me feel differently … it makes me want

games leading up to the championship, the effort from Weber went a long way into preserving a championship. “She’s a tough kid and just a freshman,” Sinclair said. “I guess I never lost any doubts in her. She was throwing hard and tried to keep them off balance by going on corners and mixing pitches. They had some really good hitters, so we had to be careful with what she’d throw.” Weber says she began to tire a little bit toward the end, but the intensity of the game and trusting in her older teammates’ ability to make a play gave her the proper mindset. “I was getting a little tired toward the end, but the adrenaline helped a lot,” Weber said. “It was hard to keep going, but I just knew all the seniors had been here before and they were going to help get us a win.” The group of five seniors leaves Hillsboro with four

state tournament appearances and Sanders says to cap it off with a championship is a definite highlight. “This feels great,” Sanders said. “Us seniors have played together probably since we were 4 years old and to go out with a win like this is an incredible feeling.” Hillsboro 3, Rock Creek 2 (13)

OVERLAND PARK — One hit away. That’s how Maize senior Peyton Jones will remember the 2012 season. And you know what — she’s OK with that. Maize was eliminated from the Class 6A softball tournament in the semifinals Saturday, suffering a 5-3 loss to Olathe South. The Eagles began the day with a 8-6 victory against Shawnee Mission East. They trailed Olathe South 4-0 before clawing their way back with a three-run sixth inning, leaving the tying run on third base. "If we come up with one more hit there, we’re playing for a state championship instead of them," Jones said. "Not many teams can say that. We were that close." Jones hit a key double in the three-run sixth for Maize,

St. James pounds Concordia; Mulvane fourth BY TONY ADAME The Wichita Eagle

SALINA — The numbers don’t quite do St. James Academy justice. On the way to a second straight Class 4A baseball title it was the Thunder and then it was everybody else, up to and including Saturday’s 17-0 runrule win over Concordia in a championship game that lasted three innings. “Our pitching has been great all year, but our bats

really came alive the last two weeks or so,” St. James coach Brian Bucklin said. “I’m as surprised as anybody that we were able to win like we did.” St. James outscored its three opponents 36-2 and was never more dominating than in the championship, when the Thunder ran Wichita State signee Garrett Brummett in one inning as Brummett gave up four hits and four runs. “We haven’t had these kind of spreads where we’re winning by this much until we got (to Salina),” Bucklin said. “It was a pleasant surprise to see us start hitting the ball like we did.

Third baseman Alex King led the Thunder in the championship, going 2 for 3 with three RBIs and two runs. King’s first inning RBI double started the scoring. Christian Bednar picked up the win for the Thunder. St. James, which opened in 2005, finished the season 19-6.

Myears didn’t want to blame the pitching or the hitting or the defense – nothing worked. More than that, however, Myears refused to take anything away from the two teams that routed the Wildcats (21-5). “Sometimes they scorched it, sometimes they dinked it, but no matter what the other team was hitting the ball,” Myears said. Mulvane takes fourth – “We had struggles at the plate, Mulvane coach Daniel Myears tried to spread the blame around too, but once the other team gets after falling twice on Saturday – on a roll hitting the ball it’s cona 10-2 semifinal loss to St. James tagious.” followed by a 24-9 third-place Against St. James, Mulvane loss to Ottawa. fell behind 10-0 before avoid-

5A BASEBALL From Page 1D intense for Seth Holman as he recalled the childhood pickup games in which he faced the bases-loaded, twoout situation frequently in his mind. That did nothing for the well-being of his dad, though. "Honestly, he’s probably a bit more nervous than I am," Seth Holman said. "He’s taught me everything, I’ve got to give it all to him. He probably can’t teach me those pressure situations, but you’ve just got to throw strikes." Holman retired Devuyst on a grounder to second base, indirectly arranging a touching moment in the midst of jubilant raw emotion that comes with state championship celebrations. As Carroll players were receiving commendations from well wishers, Taylor Sanagorski, still wearing his chest protector and shin guards, approached his dad and offered a long hug. Paul Sanagorski, the former longtime Newman coach and professional scout, stood away from the gathering and calmly wiped away tears. "I even shed a couple when

We knew what each other was thinking, but it was the ’I love you’s, the ’Great game’s and it was just an unbelievable season." Seth Holman, who pitched the final two innings to earn the save, was also thankful to share a crowning achievement with his dad, finding perspective in a family event that many teenagers may not appreciate. The Eagles got contributions from many players during its first championship season in 2005, and many played important roles in Saturday’s win. But for two families, the title was doubly

special. "We’ve got two very proud dads on this coaching staff," Carroll coach Charlie Ebright said. "I’m so happy for their families. They’re great coaches, great individuals, and their sons are really good ballplayers." Topeka Seaman 3, Goddard 2 — Trailing by three runs entering the seventh inning, Goddard quickly found itself under the best conditions for a third-place rally. A leadoff walk and two singles loaded the bases, and a fielder’s choice grounder by Austin White turned into two runs when Seaman shortstop Ryan Colombo made a wild

After taking ball one, Nevil lined McPherson’s second offering to center. But it didn’t drift beyond Tyler Bushnell, who hauled it in to end the game and give the Vikings third place. Goddard trailed after two batters, when Bushnell drove home Butch Rea after Rea’s leadoff triple. Seaman scored two more in the fifth on a single by Taylor Czjakowski. The Lions nearly broke through in the sixth, but Warren David’s soft liner that appeared to hit the line was called foul. Davis went on to strike out, delaying Goddard’s rally that stalled a batter too soon. Carroll 4, Blue Valley 3 Blue Valley Carroll

SATURDAY’S BOYS STATE TRACK NOTES Going for the win … and the record – Bishop Carroll senior David Thor and his teammates, Gage Garcia and Nick Martin set out at a brisk pace in the Class 5A 1600. Thor’s goal was clear: he not only wanted to win the 1600 for the second straight season, he wanted the 5A record. He got it, winning in 4:15.43, beating the previous record of 4:16.6, set in 1986 by Salina South’s Jason Goertzen. “I’ve been shooting for a really good time this year,” Thor said. “I’ve been coming up short the last few years in my goal. This time I finally did it. I pushed through that pain barrier. I finally got it. “… I was glad to win, but that record was kind of icing on the cake. Turning around and seeing my other teammates, especially a sophomore (Martin) playing up there in the top five with us, that was awesome.” Thor, who won the 3200 on Friday, won the 800 at 5A for the first time, finishing in 1:56.64. There was some concern early in the race, though, when he got boxed in. He raced around the outside and took the lead in the final 100 meters of the first lap. “I got boxed pretty bad, but it kind of worked out in my favor just because I went out about the 200, about 28 seconds, that’s what we were planning on me to hit,” he said. “I think that was probably a good thing. I didn’t really like the boxing, though.” Thor was also a part of Carroll’s second-place 1600 relay team as he helped Carroll finish second to Hays in the team race.

me first.” Wilkey also won the 300 hurdles in 39.45. A tough crowd – Augusta’s Zach Budda knew he was going to have a tough time winning the Class 4A high jump. He’d been through an extremely tough regional just to get to state. “I knew at our regional, we were going to be the top three,” said Budda, who will compete for Wichita State next year. They got two, with Budda winning with a height of 6-8 and Andale’s Garrison LeRock taking third. “It prepared us a lot,” Budda said of his regional competition last week. “We knew what it was going to come down to. We thought it was going to come down to scratches. It did until I made 6-8. I didn’t miss until 6-8.”

“It’s just a great feeling to finally win something as a team,” senior Steven Calloway said. “Southeast has more talent as a school, and we can make something out of it.”

First time, a title – Andale junior Jake May has run the hurdles since seventh grade, but this is the first season he’s made it to the state meet. He won the Class 4A 110 hurdles Saturday morning in 14.68. He was hindered as a sophomore by a hip flexor issue in his lead leg. But even if he had been healthy and qualified for state, he doesn’t think he would have reached this level. “I wasn’t running like this year,” he said. “I wasn’t anywhere as fast. I changed my mind, said I was going to make it this year. I worked hard. Hurdles every day, technique. I started out slow, then eventually, hard, hard, hard.”

Repeat — South Haven’s Blake Wilkey repeated in the Class 1A 110 hurdles, winning in 14.77. There was plenty of pressure on him, but he shrugged it off. “You come out and you perform the best you can that day,” he said. “Whatever happens, happens.” He didn’t get the start he wanted, too, though. “I was last coming out of the blocks, I was last to the first hurdle, actually,” he said. “I just ran my race like I run it.

through the season. “That was the meet w here we loaded him up in four events. He had some success, and that’s what he needed. He needed success, and things went from there.” Northwest’s duo of Franklin and Thompson had outstanding seasons. While Thompson has battled a hip flexor injury, Franklin’s times late in the season were worthy of a state title. “We really thought we could possibly go 1-2 (in the 100),” Northwest coach Ron Russell said. “But I’m not unhappy at all. They’re competitive kids, great to be around.” The sprinters agreed on that. Gatson noted how this group, despite being at different schools, pushed each other, never bickering. Calloway called this group humble and hard working guys who aren’t arrogant. “We’re confident,” Franklin said with a smile. “We’re not cocky.” And while they got along

through the season, through the competitions, they made each other better with their intense races. South’s Harris is one who benefited. He’s had a good year, but his finishing third in the 100 is a tribute to a strong, improved finish to his season. “I get to run with all those guys all through the years, so I know exactly where I needed to be and I know exactly where they are and I know where I need to compete and need to push at the end,” Harris said. The best thing for Harris? “It’s a really good group of guys and the best thing is we get to run against each other all throughout the year,” Harris said. “And at state, we still get to run against each other.”

lot and she’s been so mature about it all. I think we’re all proud of what she’s been able to do.” In the 100, Yeargin’s victory wasn’t secure until the results flashed on the JumboTron. After a quick start, Yeargin maintained her pace and crossed the finish line in 11.96 seconds — one-hundredth of a second faster than Emporia’s Oasis Hernandez. It was the fastest girls 100 time of all the classes. “I was going to break down and start crying if I lost that,” Yeargin said. “But once I saw my name come up first on the screen, I was filled with so much joy. It just felt like it was time to win one. I’ve been looking forward to this since Day 1.” But Yeargin’s greatest pleasure was in bringing joy to her teammates by coming up with

the 400 relay victory. When Rangel handed off to Yeargin, she was in third place. It didn’t take long for her to make up the distance and give Newton the title in a seasonbest time of 49.43. “As soon as I handed it off to her, I knew she had it,” Rangel said. “Lati doesn’t really get to see the back of people’s jerseys very often. We had all the confidence in her to bring that home and she did.” Yeargin wanted the day to last forever. She hopes she’s able to keep the feeling of what she felt on Saturday with her. She’s going to need it to get through the summer. “Track is my getaway,” Yeargin said. “I’m going to miss this because whenever I’m running that’s when I’m at my happiest. I know I’m going to remember this day forever.”

Experienced winner — Douglass’ Avery McNelly repeated in the Class 3A 400, winning in 49.40 seconds. But coming in, he didn’t have the relaxed feeling that sometimes comes when one has been there before. “I was a little nervous about how hard these guys can push,” he said. “I know they’re good competitors.”

Worth noting — Medicine Lodge’s Lakin Liebst won the Class 2A triple jump at 42-9¾. He edged Berean Academy’s Loren Pearce, who jumped 42-7¾.… Berean’s Daniel Claassen won the Class 2A 1600 meters in 4:32.02, more than three faster than second place.… Smoky Valley’s Nick Deterding won the Class 4A 200 in 22.79 and won the 400 in 48.88.

SATURDAY’S GIRLS STATE TRACK NOTES Klaver comeback — Going to track meets last spring brought Norwich’s Kenzie Klaver to tears. She would watch her races, the sprints and the hurdles, and break down when it hit her that a knee injury suffered during basketball season would keep her out of track her whole sophomore year. The tears almost came back on Saturday, but for a different reason. This time it was from joy after Klaver came away with three Class 1A titles in the 100 (12.47 seconds), 100 hurdles (15.25) and 300 hurdles (45.41). She also finished second in the 200. “I feel so thankful that God has blessed me with great talent and I was able to use it this way,” Klaver said. “I know people are going to say I would be disappointed with a second, but I’m really not. I’m so happy to just be here and have this much success.” After rehabbing the entire offseason, Klaver returned this season and saw immediate success in her races. Competing against higher classes all season was what Klaver gave credit to her victories. Quarter love — The secret to succeeding in the 400, Derby’s Alyxis Bowens will tell you, is to accept it for what it is: a tough race. It’s OK not to like it, but it will grow on you. “I used to hate it because it was such a hard race,” Bowens said. “But the more you do it, the more you get used to running it and you start to like it a little bit. There’s nothing that gives you more of a sense of accomplishment than finishing a 400 race.” It’s even better in victory, as Bowens found out when she won the Class 6A 400 race in a time of 57.40. After placing third last season, Bowens had hopes of a title. “I knew I could have did better last season,” Bowens said. “I think it was the hunger to get that first place that pushed me through. I think I realized how much I wanted to win.” Redemption run — Taylor Chandler would not be denied one last time. Her first three seasons at Heights produced quality seasons in the sprints, but never an individual state title. After placing second in the 100 and fourth in the long

jump, Chandler was in danger of finishing her career without a title. But in her final race, Chandler finally broke through her mental barrier to win the 6A 200 championship in a time of 25.69. “It would have hurt a lot,” Chandler said. “I like the 200 better than the 100 and I work harder at it, so I would have been hard to take. I knew I had to win it this year, so it feels like the monkey is off my back. Chandler also teamed with Loni Fowler, Krystal Iheme and Rianne Richard to form the winning 400 relay team for Heights, producing a season-best time of 48.19. Acceptable trade-off — Hurdles are the sole reason Conway Springs’ Emily Doffing does track. She had to leave this weekend with one title, but she wasn’t expecting it to be in the 300 hurdles. But when Doffing took second in the 100 hurdles, which she won last season, she turned her attention to her final hope. “I was really disappointed after I got second place in the 100 hurdles,” Doffing said. “When they introduced me, they said, ‘Reigning champion’ and I didn’t defend that. So that was a letdown. But I knew I had to come back.” Doffing narrowly came away with victory, winning in two-hundredths of a second over Rossville’s Mindy Wilson in the 300 hurdles with a time of 45.58. “It makes my day so much better,” Doffing said. “At least I got one. I was disappointed earlier, but now I realized I’ve medaled in four individual events and that’s just phenomenal.” Two-for-two — Coming back to the state meet as a defending champion, Cheney sophomore Taylor Needham felt the pressure of repeating. She channeled that pressure into her performance, coming through with a season-best time of 57.46 in the 400 to win the 4A title again. “I feel like it was my determination to come back here and do it again,” Needham said. “Last year I had no expectations, but this time I felt like I had to come back and defend my title.” — Taylor Eldridge

Calloway leads City League sprint show BY JOANNA CHADWICK The Wichita Eagle

The attention Southeast senior Steven Calloway draws is initially because of his hair. He’s got a high fade, in a Kid ’n’ Play style. He’s added a dash of bleached blonde across the front middle, drawing even more looks. Calloway, who has a quiet demeanor and soft voice, brought more attention to himself by winning the 200 and 400 meters in Class 6A

and was part of the winning 400 relay and 1600 relay teams at Cessna Stadium during Saturday’s final day of the state track and field meet. “It’s outstanding,” Southeast coach Mark Lamb said of Calloway’s wins. “… He’s done everything we asked him to do, and he’s worked hard.” Calloway wasn’t the only City League sprinter drawing attention to himself. The City League dominated the Class 6A sprints. Behind Calloway’s winning 200 of 22.15, Heights senior Skylarr Gatson finished sec-

ond in 22.18. South’s Davonte Harris (22.75) was third, Northwest’s Zach Franklin (22.76) sixth. And behind Calloway’s winning time in the 400 (48.26), teammate Bradan Smith (49.10) finished fourth to help Southeast to a thirdplace team finish. Behind Calloway’s anchor leg of the 400 relay win (42.74), Heights (42.78) was second, Northwest (43.11) fourth. In the 100 meters, six of the top eight were from the City

Northwest’s Zach Franklin, Heights’ Skylarr Gatson and Southeast’s Steven Calloway anchor their team’s 400 relays Saturday at Cessna Stadium. Southeast won the race. Fernando Salazar/ The Wichita Eagle

CARROLL VS. ST. THOMAS AQUINAS

Carroll wins again

■ Medicine Lodge tops Sedan, wins as low seed. BY PAIGE FEIKERT Eagle correspondent

EMPORIA — Medicine Lodge’s appearance at the Class 2-1A baseball tournament Friday and Saturday could be summed up in one word: upsets. The Indians began the tournament as the sixth seed and beat Little River (third seed) and St. Paul (second) to reach the championship game. When Medicine Lodge faced Sedan — top seed and defending champion — for the championship, its streak of upsets did not end, defeating the Blue Devils 11-2. “We play a lot of big 3A and 4A teams throughout the year, we just know our competition that we play has really reflected on the way that we’ve played in the state tournament, it really prepared us,” Medicine Lodge coach Chuck Dirks said. The first inning began with Medicine Lodge’s Scott Beecher striking out, but a passed ball on the final strike led to Beecher advancing to first base. A passed ball and a sacrifice fly scored two runs. With the bases loaded, another sacrifice brought in a run for Medicine Lodge to give it a 3-0 lead – the smallest lead the Indians had throughout the game. The offense didn’t stop for Medicine Lodge, scoring runs in four of the remaining six innings. “That’s always been a strength for us. All nine of them are able to hit the ball,” Dirks said. “They’re all patient hitters, they know what they want and they hit just what they want to hit.” Sedan scored its runs in the fifth inning. Shon Pinard singled to center field, followed by a Medicine Lodge error, putting two runners on base. Trae Smith singled to center field to bring in one run, and a passed ball scored another. “I knew they were the team to beat, that’s how it worked out this year,” Sedan coach Rick Chrisman said. “We were the top seed, and it got us to the final, but I’ve got to give them all the credit.” Medicine Lodge pitcher Zachary Larkin pitched five innings, finishing with 11

Eagles beat Aquinas for second straight 5A softball title BY BRANDON DROGE Eagle correspondent

ith the bottom of the order coming up in the fifth inning of a scoreless state softball championship game, Bishop Carroll coach Angie Dal Pozzo had a short visit with her players. “I told the girls to jump on the first good pitch they saw,” Dal Pozzo said. The Eagles took it to heart, getting an RBI single from Morgan Balderas and two-run homer from nine-hole hitter Shelby Craig that led to a 4-1 victory over St. Thomas Aquinas at Two Rivers Youth Club. It gave Carroll (23-2) its second straight Class 5A championships and 10th title overall.

Bishop Carroll pitcher Jessica Haffner throws in the 5A title game against St. Thomas Aquinas on Saturday. Carroll won the title with a 4-1 victory. “That’s huge to have the bottom of the lineup be able to step up like they did today,” Dal Pozzo said. “I love our lineup because anybody

can make something happen.” Carroll’s three-run fifth inning broke open a tight game hours after the Eagles had run-ruled Topeka

Seaman 10-0 in the semifinals. Balderas, a sophomore, drove in Mary Jo Peter for the first run. She scored on Craig’s homer to center field. The three runs were more than enough for Carroll pitchers Jessica Haffner and Katelynn Smith. Haffner, the starter, limiting Aquinas’ potent offense to four hits over five innings while striking out four. Smith earned the save by recording the final six outs, surrendering one run on two hits over two innings. Dal Pozzo said that she was proud of the way her team competed throughout the game. “It feels great to end the season on top,” she said. “The girls worked so hard all year to get to this point, and that work paid off today. It’s just amazing.” Aquinas cut the Carroll lead to 3-1 with a solo homer by freshman Casey Campbell in the sixth inning, Please see 5A SOFTBALL, Page 13D
