Runners confident Golf legends start poorly in Masters

ofirs lc finish
by Tom Kent
Daily Sports Writer

So far this year, spring sports
haven't been blessed with the
warmest and driest of days.
But despite the snow in St. Louis
and the rain in Raleigh, the women's
track team has come up with some
shining performances.
Last weekend the team had one
automatic qualifier for the NCAAs,
Julie Victor in the discus, and two
provisional qualifiers in the distance,
Mindy Rowand in the 3000 meters
and Molly McClimon in the 1500
meters.
Provisional qualification is
subject to change every week as new
times and distances are recorded, but
if the NCAAs were held today
Rowand and McClimon would
secure spots in their respective
distances.
The majority of the distance
runners will stay home this weekend
when the team travels to Ohio
University in Athens, Ohio for their
first scored championship meet of
the season - a meet which coach
James Henry expects to run away
with.
"We should win easily," Henry
said. "We're not going out there to
rack up points but when it's all said
and done we should come out with
the championship."
The team performed well last
weekend in Raleigh and had some
strong individual performances, but

Henry did express some doubts.
"I'm a little concerned that my
kids (sprinters and hurdlers) didn't
get the specialty work that they
needed this week in practice because
of the weather," he said. "But as far
as conditioning goes we're in good
shape."
Henry had planned to test the 4 X
100 this weekend inserting Ronda
Ricketts in the relay for the first
time. Unfortunately Ricketts suffered
a slight hamstring pull this week in
practice and will most likely take the
weekend off. Michele Bishop,
Gillian Osborne, Dyan Jenkins, and
Suzette Thweatt are scheduled to run
the relay
"This relay is suspect righi now,"
Henry said. "But we're ahead of our
times from a year ago and do still
have four qualified people to run it."
Others to watch this weekend
will be first year runner Lisa Adams
who will compete in the 400 meter
hurdles, and Julie Victor who will
try to top her performance of a week
ago in the discus.
Competing in the meet will be
Ball State, Kent State, Malone
University, Marshall University,
West Virginia, Miami (OH), and
Ohio University. Henry and the rest
of the team are on their marks for
what they hope will be their first
championship of the outdoor season.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The
longshots left the legends behind at
Augusta National on Thursday.
Mike Donald, playing in his first
Masters, came within a single shot
of the tournament record with a
windblown 64 Thursday and took a
2-shot lead after 18 holes.
"The round of my life," the 34-
year-old journeyman said of the eight
birdie effort that gave him the lead
over another Masters rookie, John
Huston.
The 28-year-old Huston shot an
errorless 66 in earlier, more calm
conditions. He didn't miss a green
and wasn't even close to a bogey.
Meanwhile, some of golf's great
names - Arnold Palmer, Lee
Trevino, Greg Norman and Tom
Watson among them - struggled
and strained in swirling winds.
Veteran Peter Jacobsen's 5-under

67 had him in good position.
Norman, the muscular Australian
who came into these 54th Masters a
favorite, found more trouble than he
could handle. He shot 78. So did
Trevino.
Palmer, 60, was two shots better
at 76.
Watson, like Palmer, had a 40 on
the back nine and struggled home
with a 77.
Paul Azinger, a winner earlier
this season, took a 10 on the 13th
hole and shot 80.
"On the 15th, I threw up wind
four times and it blew in four
different directions," two-time U.S.
Open champion Curtis Strange said.
He then hit his second shot
through the green and had to work
hard to salvage his par-5 on the way
to a 70.

He was tied at that figure with
Billy Glasson and a flock of former
Masters champions: 50-year-old
George Archer; Ray Floyd; Larry
Mize; and West German Bernhard
Langer, who scored best of the
Europeans.
Defending champion Nick Faldo
of England was at 71, as was PGA
title-holder Payne Stewart.
Two-time Masters winner Seve
Ballesteros of Spain went from
woods to water in a 74. Current
British Open champion mark
Calcavecchia had a the same total. It
included a 40 on the back nine
Jack Nicklaus, who became
convinced he would win a seventh
Masters after a victory in his first
start on the Seniors tour last week,
bogeyed his final hole and had to
settle for a par 72.
Donald, who became eligible for

the Masters by scoring his career-
first tour victory last year in
Williamsburg, VA., birdied six of
seven holes at one stretch and came
within one shot of the Masters
record 63 by Nick Price in 1986.
That was one of the 10 years
Donald spent this week in
Hattiesburg, Miss., in a tournament
for Masters non-eligibles.Donald
chipped in once and one-putted 10
times on the glass-slick greens that
are a trademark of Masters play.
"I'm not looking for another 64,"
he said, "but there's no reason I
shouldn't continue to make some
good scores. I might not make as
many putts, but I should make a
few.
"Even if I mess up, maybe
people will remember for a while
that Mike Donald led the first round
of the Masters."

Teen continues terrorizing top-ranked players.
HILTON HEAD (AP) - Jennifer to be ranked, is now 11-2 as a going to be tough. So I had to play an overhead smash.

to the quarterfinals of the Family "I thought this was one of the unforced errors to 18 for her Spanish "

Circle Magazine Cup.
Playing in her third tournament
since turning professional last
month, the 14-year-old Capriati took
just 45 minutes to defeat Sanchez
Vicario, the second seed, 6-1, 6-1 on
the green clay at Sea Pines Racquet
Club.
Capriati, who is not seeded and

Capriati said. "I mean it wasn't so
easy. I had to keep playing well. I
think I just didn't give her a chance
to come back into the match because
I was playing well."
"It showed me that I can be in
there and hang in there with them,"
she said. "First I thought, here I
was playing a top player and it was

"If I was missing them I would
be more patient," Capriati said. "But
since I was making them I said
O.K."
Capriati went up a break in the
fourth game of the first set, then
broke Sanchez Vicario again with a
backhand that landed just inside the
baseline. Capriati won the set with
