    avelin throwerwins; baseball team loses lead
By Scott Jones
Scott Sorchik, Husker
javilin thrower, won his event
for the second consecutive
week Friday duplicating his
Kansas Relays victory at the
Drake Relays.
Although the Sussex, N J.,
sophomore beat his nearest
rival by 18 feet, his 226 ft. 6
in. toss wasn't equal to his
winning heave of 239 ft. at
Kansas a week earlier.
Sorchik won the javelin at
the Big 8 meet last year with
an effort of 243 ft. 7 in., and
will defend his title at this
year's meet in Norman, Okla.,
May 16 and 17.
Offensive weak spots
worry Husker coach
By Pete Wegman
Following Saturday
afternoon's football
scrimmage, the, last full-scale
session before the annual
Red-White game next
Saturday, head football coach
Tom Osborne expressed
concern about the depth on his
Cornhusker squad.
"Sometimes you're no
better than your second string.
I think we've got to develop a
little depth," Osbome said.
"We appear to have 22 to 25
good football players out
Osborne said he especially
was concerned about the
Huskers' offensive line, where
the team lost four of last
season's five starters through
"On defense you can hide
some weak spots, but
particularly on that offensive
line, the weak spots show up so
quickly," he said.
Two touchdowns
However, the line did
manage to open some holes for
the Husker backfield Saturday,
although only two touchdowns
were scored in the two and
one-half hour scrimmage.
On Saturday's first series
the number one offensive, with
Bob Lingenfelter, Dan
Schmidt, Rik Bonness, Nick
Zanetich and Greg Hoins
anchoring the line, moved 60
yards for a touchdown against
the number two defense.
The thirteen-play drive was
engineered by quarterback
Terry Luck and included six
carries in a row by freshman
Mor.te Anthony, a 13-yard run
by Tony Davis and a one-yard
sneak for the touchdown by
I .tick.
Luck, Vince Ferragamo and
Tony Sorley shared most of
the quarterbacking duties with
the top offensive units. Luck
was three of four for 20 yards
in the passing department
while Ferragamo was five of
ten for 99 yards and Sorley
connected on two of four for
Picture clearer
Osborne said the
quarterback picture looks
clearer now since Luck,
Ferragamo and Sorley have
moved ahead of Randy Garcia
and Ed Burns.
"Wc have to arrive at two
or three quarterbacks for next
fall," Osborne said.
Garcia, who was red-shifted
last fail, was responsible for the
other touchdown of the
afternoon. Near the end of the
scrimmege, Garda threw to
wingeack Bill Kraft for a

Chuck Malito continued to
improve in the 440-yard
intermediate hurdles at the
relay meet. In his third outing
in the event, Malito ran 51.4,
good for third place and a
qualifying spot in the NCAA
meet June 5-7 in Provo, Utah.
Malito ran in an invitational
supplement to the university
440 hurdles race.
A third Husker, Steve
Jepsen, also scored well in the
javelin event. After missing the
Kansas Relays with a hamstring
pull, Jepsen was second at
Drake with a 183 ft. 6 in. toss,
third-best in Nebraska history.
Lost lead
In other sports action this
nine-yard touchdown.
Tight end Brad Jenkins,
who sustained a slight knee
strain, was the only Husker
injured in the scrimmage,
Linebackers Percy Eichelberger
and Jim Belka, wingback Tom
Heiser, middle guard Scott
Hertenstein, tackle Bob Hayes,
defensive back Rod Stovall and
guard Dan Miller missed the
scrimmage because of injuries.
Osborne said the team has
made progress this spring, but
added, "We're still a long way
from playing a football game."
