Malin Makes Date with Disc Downstate


Byline: Daily Herald Reports

A very bizarre season for the Wheeling track team became even more strange during Friday's Class AA Glenbrook South sectional. With just minutes remaining before the start of the discus, Wheeling's Don Malin was nowhere to be found.

It wasn't Malin's fault. Partly because of a new class schedule at Wheeling, Malin arrived just moments before he was supposed to throw in the competition.

Without taking even a practice throw, he entered the ring and threw over the state standard with a 154-11 to earn a spot in next weekend's state meet in Charleston.

"We kind of felt that both our throwers could qualify," said Wheeling coach Kip North. "Don's throw was incredible. We thought we could be good, but we never thought we could finish 1-2."

Malin's teammate Matt Streich was expected to qualify and did so. His toss of 157-7 won the sectional and earned Streich a return trip downstate.

Wheeling completed its meet with 59 1/2 points, just 1 point behind New Trier (60.5) and perennial sectional champion Evanston (107). The team scores were not complete; the pole vault still needs to be held today.

Duane Stone of Evanston was the meet's top individual qualifier. Stone won both the 100 dash and the 300 hurdles. He also helped anchor Evanston's 1,600 relay to victory.

The weather was a big part of the day, but it certainly didn't seem to affect Eduardo Torres of Wheeling. Gunning for his first-ever state title, Torres won the 1600 and 3200 easily.

In the 1600, Torres' teammate Erik Schroll also earned a trip downstate by placing fourth and finishing under the standard.

The Wildcats' other qualifier almost was a sectional champion in the process. Sheldon Patrick placed second in the 200, just an eyelash behind Loyola's P.J. Collins.

"We did about as well as we expected," North said. "It's a shame to get to the biggest meet of the season and have the weather like this."

Stevenson managed only one qualifier out of the sectional and it came in the 3200. Steve Traphagen placed a distant second to Torres but his time was good enough to make the cut. Traphagen was one out of six that made it in that event.

"We had a lot of guys with personal bests today," said Stevenson coach Don Proft. "A lot of guys competed today at a very high level despite the weather."

The most noticeable drop came in the mile, where sophomore Ian Cronin ran a time of 4:29.9, narrowly missing the state cut.

at Prospect

For all Hersey, Buffalo Grove, Maine West and Rolling Meadows knew, the conditions were perfect at the Class AA Hersey sectional at Prospect on Friday night.

Hersey led second place Oak Park-River Forest 87-64.5 with only the postponed discus, shot put and pole vault events left and qualified two relays and four individuals for the state meet next weekend.

Buffalo Grove sat in third (58.5), also with two relays and four individuals heading down state.

Maine West (42.5) got an 18-second drop out of its second-place 3200 relay and added three individual qualifiers.

Finally, Rolling Meadows (38) advanced one relay and two individuals. …
