In a sport domi- nated in the past by Harlan Community and Elk Horn-Kimballton in the area, Tri- Center makes a leap to the top of the heap. The Trojans place four among the area dozen honored as the best track athletes in the area. That equals the total from HCHS and is double the number from any other school. The best track season ever at Tri-Center was a result of balance. That shows in the four selected as all-area members. Two are sprinters, one a distance man and the other competed in the weight events. Leading off for T-C is state discus champion Tom Schneckloth, one of the three contenders for Area Track Athlete of the Year. Schneckloth surprised a lot of people when he won the discus title in Class 2A last week. Appropriately, he credited teammate Bill Jennings with showing him the technique of the event and the 161'1" winning throw. Schneckloth also led the area in the shot put (51 '1/2"). The sprinters from T-C are Joe Vetro and Scott Johnsen. The pair hold school records for the 200 and 100 respectively. Johnsen's :11.1 in the f00 was tops in the area this spring. Rounding out the Trojan honorees is Rob Larsen. The junior distance runner qualified for state in both distance events and is the area's best cross country runner as well. The Harlan Community Cyclone track team was dominated by sprint and hurdle people. Despite that, they had one distance runner among the all-area picks - junior Scott Arkfeld. He led the area in both 8130 and 1600-meter times. Two other HCHS runners joined T-C's Schneckloth as contenders for the top track athlete award - Curt Schulte and Todd Hansen. Hansen and another teammate honored, Jason Moore, were both sprinters for HCHS and are listed among the area leaders in the 100, 200 and 400. It comes as little surprise that Schulte is not only on the all-area team but is the 1989 Track Athlete of the Year for the Harlan Newspapers. Schulte broke school records in both the 110 and 400-meter hurdles and placed second and fifth respectively in Class 4A at the state meet. Elk Hom-Kimballton didn't have the depth of previous years but were able to come up with an impressive quartet of runners for relay competition. Two of those relay runners axe honored on the all- area team - Dennis Haas and Josh Nelsen. Joel Birks. Gibson led the area in the high Haas handled sprint distances and Nelsen jump and was also a key member of the top the mid-distances in relays. The two were 3200-meter relay squad. Birks was among on both third place relays in the state meet the leaders in both the 100 and 200. last week. Several athletes were near misses when The other two athletes honored as tops, the selections were made. Those who in the area are Shelby-Tennant-AvoHa's couldn't quite crack the all-area elite were Jim Gibson and Irwin-Kirkman-Manilla's Tri-Center's Bill Jennings; Harlan Corn- munity's Todd Gross and Kenyon DeHaan; I-K-M's Jay Birks, EH-K's Joel Juelsgaard, Mark Hansen and Jay Johnson; and Walnut's Marty Brunsmann. 1989 HARLAN NEWSPAPER ALL-AREA BOYS' TRACK TEAM Scott Arkfeld, Harlan Community (distances) Joel Birks, Irwin-Kirkman-Manilla (sprints) Jim Gibson, Shelby-Tennant-AvoHa (distances, Runner of the Year - J:ew hurdles can slow Schulte t i AvoHa is fifth in 1A competition- Curt Schulte, Harlan Community Cyclones 1989 Harlan Newsoapers Track Athlete of the Year by Lonnie Guinn ... sports editor It comes as little surprise thatCurt Schulte is one of the top athletes in the area. After all, he comes from a very athletic family that lives in a very athletic community (Westph- alia). After being named the 1989 Har- lan Newspaper Track Athlete of the Year, he commented, "My family is real sports-oriented. My dad always reminds me of his old days. He al- ways says how important academics are but I know how much athletics mean to him. My mom stresses the academics. "In Westphalia, they're all ath- letes. Everywhere you go it's a com- pliment. That feels good." Schulte wrote his name into the HCHS record books this season on several occasions. His :14.9 in the 110-meter high hurdles and :54.63 in the 400 lows are both at the top of the Cyclone charts. Surprisingly, he came within .1 second of breaking the 400-meter dash mark as well. But the hurdles are his forte. The Cyclones compete in the largest class in the state during track. That makes it tough to qualify for the state track meet and even tougher to earn a medal. Schulte proved up to the challenge though. After a disap- pointing appearance in the state meet his junior year, he came back with a vengeance this year. "Last year helped me a lot," said Curt Schulte Continued on Page 10A Daberkow is 4th in 2A state golf OTTUMVdA - Jana Daberkow ended her high school golf season with a good showing in the girls' state golf meeL The junior from Harlan Community finished 13th among 18 golfers in medalist compe- tition at the meet at the Otmmwa Golf and Country Club this week. "Jana was disappointed a little in her finish but she handled herself pretty well I thought," said HCHS Coach Rich Byg- heSS. "She golfed well under some.tough conditions. She had a lot of nervous energy on Tuesday." Daberkow golfed nine-hole rounds of 47 and45 on Tuesday when hot, humid and windy conditions prevailed. It was almost the opposite on Wednesday when she had .rounds of 46 and 47 in a consistent rain. Daberkow's 36-hole round of 185 placed her fourth in Class 2A medafist competition. Gina Della Vedova of Albia led with a 168. In addition, Daberkow had the 16th best score of the 100 competitors (both team and medalis0 in the state meet. The score was the best among southwest Iowa qualifiers which included the Allan, . tic and AvoHa teams. "It was a great experience for player and coach," said Bygness. "The course in Ottumwa is a beautiful course and it was challenging. Some of the high scores in the tournament weren't because of bad golf- ing."

Humboldt, 194 AvoHa girls finish fifth in Class 1A state golf meet OTTUMWA - The AvoHa Vikettes f'mished fifth in the Class 1A state golf meet held at the Ottumwa Golf and Coun- try Club Tuesday and Wednesday. The Vikettes carded a 36-hole total of 886 over the two days to edge Galva-Holstein by 10 strokes for fifth place among the six quail- tiers. After the first day of competiton, the Vikettes found themselves in last place but they improved 16 strokes over the opening day to edge G-H and nearly catch fourth place Greene (880). Denver took the title by beating Aurelia in a three-hole playoff. Karlin Sedlacek had a two-day total of 187, the fourth best score among the 30 girls competing in team comptition in Class 1A. She had a sparkling 42 on the par-35 front nine on Tuesday. She finished with rounds of 47, 52 and 46. Other Vikette scores were Kellie Maas- sen 59-54-50-50, 213; Angle Kubik 59-60- 55-61,235; Kaycee Grebe 68-66-52-69, 255; and Kelley Piittmann 61-69-74-60, 264.

The Cyclones were scheduled to open against Tri-Center on Monday evening but wet grounds forced postponement of that game. That left TJ as the opener for HCHS, traditionally a southwest Iowa power- house. Schulte's pitching performance was just what the Cyclones had hoped for this year. Coming into the season, Coach Jim Bruck was unsure of the team's pitching staff but Schulte certainly showed poten- tial. In seven innings he struck out seven, walked none and gave up just one hit. In fact, the Yellowjackets had just three base- runners all night and Schulte retired the first 11 batters he faced. "That's about as good a game as I could expect from Corby," said Coach Bruck. "Don Allmon played a super third base as well. He handled some tough chances." The Cyclones didn't wait long to get on the scoreboard as they scored three runs in the opening frame. Duane Brus had the only hit as an error, hit batter and two passed balls aided the Cyclone cause. TJ's lone run came in the fifth frame when a single by Darren Almond was followed by a two-base error. He then scored on a passed ball.
