SPORTS/2 }ages Fri. ATHLETIC Gun Club members compete at state CEDAR FALLS - Three members of the Harlan Gun Club had impressive showings at the Iowa State Shoot here last week- end.

Cyclonette swim team to meet Jennifer Peters Continued from Page 7A Her statistics over the past two seasons are truly amazing. She struck out only twice and committed a single error this season. She remembers that error very vividly. "Last year, I felt some pressure at the end of the season when I found out about the streaks," she said. "I got it over with quickly this year. In a way it was a relief because you can't expect to go forever without striking ouL I can remember the error because it was so stupid. It was an easy throw to second after I fielded a ball. I remember thinking, 'You dummy. Why'd you throw the bali so hard?'" Peters was a catcher and shortstop her freshman season.

Softball has provided some great moments for Peters and her teammates. The squad has finished third in the state the last two seasons. The team's accomplish- ments this year really haven't fully sunk in yet, according to Peters. She commented, "You look at the final ratings in Class 2A and there's Charles City and Boone No. 1 and No.2. We beat both of those teams in tournaments. When the season was over, it was rmlly an upper because of what we had done." The current season opened with plenty of apprehension. The Cyclonettes were losing four of five positions up the middle - catcher, shortstop, pitcher and second base. The only middle player returning was Peters in center field. It took awhile but the team steadily began to see they were good enough to return to state. "We started to realize how good we were after we had won the Hawkeye Eight with a 14-0 record. Beating Ames and Boone were big games, too," she said. Peters also excelled in three other sports. She averaged 18.3 points for the girls' basketball team that finished 18-2 overall and was rated among the top five all season long. She was also one of the area's top hurdlers in track competition. She said of the other three sports, "I love to hurdle. That's why I went out for track. It was fun this year because we put together some good relay teams, too. I really enjoyed my senior track season the most. "I was happy with our basketball sea- son. It was disappointing to lose (to Atlan- tic) in tournaments, but you can't expect to go to state all the time. The softball season really helped get over that. "Volleyball is fun because it's so dif- ferent from the other sports. It's really fun when you can beat teams like Atlantic or Lewis Central because they're so tough in every sport." But Peters' allegiance keeps returning to softball. She's headed for the University of Northern Iowa this fall where she re- ceived a scholarship for softball. She plans on majoring in elementary education. Peters is the first Cyclonette to win the Harlan Newspaper Softball Player of the Year award. Interestingly, a Cyclone base- ball player is honored as the area's top player this season, too. Jennifer is the daughter of Carl and Judy Peters of rural Harlan.
