The teams open at Glenwood Tuesday. State meet, Larsen have Tri-Center harriers excited about '89 season NEOLA - The Tri-Center cross coun- try program lost an enthusiastic coach but they haven't lost their enthusiasm. Coach Pat Dalton takes over for John Brooke, who left T-C for an administrative job in Nebraska. The position won't be unfamiliar to Dalton however. He coached the team in the early 1980s when Tri-Center finished 13th in the girls' state cross country meet. Although the program dimished tremen- dously in the next few campaigns after that finish, Brooke was able to revitalize the program the last couple of years. The Tri-Center boys finished 15th in the state cross country meet last year. In addition, Rob Larsen was 10th among 126 varsity runners in the Class 1A competi- tion while Helena Rieber was 12th in the girls' competition. The program looks to he nothing but stronger this year, too. Five of the seven boys who qualified for the state meet are back while only one girl graduated. Dalton will have 13 boys (including seven sen- iors) and eight girls to pick from. Larsen should be one of the top runners in southwest Iowa this fall. He consistenly placed among the top five in meets last season and many of his closest competitors have graduated. He is also a big reason that the T-C program continues to survive at its present level. "The key part of all of this has been Rob Larsen," said Dalton. "He has kept the enthusiasm going. He's the best recruiter for the program. Plus, going to state last year hasn't hurt the interest. Unless I screw it up, we should be tough again."

Two freshmen are expected to make up for Wamer's loss - Wendy Martin and JoAnn McDermott.

Missouri Valkzj Invitational 50 points will be limit - Prep foo tba I I use blowou t NOTE: The following is a story that appeared in the Council Bluffs Nonpareil and was written by the Associated Press. DES MOINES - The Iowa High School Athletic Association has borrowed a page from the baseball rule book to spare football players physical as well as emo- tional anguish. Starting this fall, high school football in Iowa will be played under a 50-point rule that will end one-sided games early. Once a team gets ahead of another by 50 points at halftime or during the secondhalf, the game is stopped. That's similar to the 10-run rule in high school baseball. A baseball game is ended ifa team gets a 10-run lead after the other team has had five turns at bat. "It's all in the interest of safety," said Dave Harty, assistant executive secretary of the Iowa High School Athletic Associa- tion. "It keeps the kids from getting injured unnecessarily." Under the rule, if a 50-point margin is achieved any time in the second half, the game is stopped immediately. If a team builds a 50-point lead in the first half, the .game would he stopped when the first half s complete. ber 1 (today) and 4A playoff vember 17. (The other 10-11.)

That was to comply rule stating that a injury that requires a the following play. FEWER BIG SCORES The rule means there will be far fewer scores of 60-0 or 72-0. Such scores are still possible, but all of the points would have to be scored in the first half. "There's no sense playing a football game when a team is that far out in front," Harty said. "You don't accomplish any- thing anyway." The rules committee of the National Federation of High School Associations gave the state governing boards the option of setting a point differential for ending football games early. (According to USA Today, Iowa is the only state to implement the new rule this fall.) The IHSAA surveyed its member schools on the issue, found that such a rule would be acceptable and decided on the 50-point margin. "A lot of states are going to this," Harty said. "Each state could decide whatever it feels is a reasonable point differential." Provisions for ending games early have been in effect previously. A game can be stopped if both sides agree to end it, or the two sides can agree to shorten the quarters, which normally are 12 minutes. However, there had been nothing to end a game when a certain score is reached.

CYCLONE SENIORS - Playing their final football season in a Cyclone uniform this fall will be, front, from left: Ryan l_owe, Jamle Petsche, Corey Sprague, Dale Schmltz, Brad Schwery, Tim Miller, Kev'In Schechinger; Middle: Lance Grummert, Cohen Johnson, Cory Carter, Scott Schlitz, Paul Kenkel, Troy Bruck, Jerrad Popp; Back: Jason Pauley, Jeff Sonderman, Scott Arkfeld, John Larsen, Randy Ztmrnerman, Jeff Bladt, Steve Kiuemer and Troy Schulte. Whether a weekend athlete or a dedicated member of a school team, no one wants to be sidelined by a sports injury. Dr. Daniel l_arose, sports medicine physician and orthopaedic surgeon, understands the psychology of competition and the desire to compete. His goal is to return injured athletes to the playing field as quickly and safely as possible, using advanced orthopaedic treat" ment modalities. Beginning in September, Dr. Larose will hold a free Saturday morning sports injury evalua" tion clinic in our offices. The clinic will be open from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. No appointment is necessary. Physical therapy members of the Sports Specialty Team at Jennie Edmundson Hospital will also be available during the clinic to provide on-site exercise instruction. Dr. Larose is the Medical Coordinator of the Sports Specialty Team at Jennie Edmundson Hospital. 201 Ridge Street Doctors Building, Suite 307 Council Bluffs, Iowa 51503 712/323/5333 ffg/00 Orthopaedic Affiliates, P.C.
