O Bmlkcerfs lDDevellcoUD lfiiancsiimmg llvllcotiilliifgv Due in part to the success of the motion picture Breaking Away cycling has emerged as a competitive, high-speed sport in the United States. MacArthur students Brian Windsor and Mike Cardwell worked out two to three hours per day. Each rode 12 speeds up hills in Irving, and on rollers. Windsor stated, "The most important thing in racing are RPM's, often reaching as high as 90." Lightweight jackets with large pockets in the back for storing various items such as mini-repair kits, food, and drink were required for competitive racing. Gloves which covered the palms and the base of the fingers were worn as protection from blisters and cuts received occasionally from falling. Exclusively manufactured shoes with a cleat which hooked on to the pedals for support were worn as well as black shorts extending almost to the knee, which were designed for comfort. Racing bicycles were constructed of durable, lightweight materials. Thus, the smaller frame and trimmer wheels cost anywhere from S400 to S2000 for the ten and twelve speed bikes. Bansscelballlll Enters SQDEQKEDEQUU League By participating in the Mens' Minor Softball League, 12 members of the Varsity Baseball Team kept in shape for the upcoming season. Lonnie Sturdy coached the team, as UIL rules prohibited Coach Roy Kinnan from coaching. Kinnan suggested the team play in the league for the purpose of strengthening unity, and helping the team work together in hopes of a successful season in the spring. Having never played the game on a competitive basis, the Cardinals found the going rough as they were only able to win two games. Jeff Williams explained, "The larger ball is harder to play with, both hitting and catching. It helps improve our throwing form a lot." Along with the larger ball, several differences the game of softball has from it's parent baseball include four outfielders instead of three. Also, the bases are a shorter distance apart, and the pitching speed is slow-with no lead offs. Due to heavy rains in the early season, games were postponed and the team did not play for weeks. Workouts, however, continued during sixth period until October 29. 1' ,ff 623 v-v nv X Top Left: Sophomore Mike Cardwell engages in a two- hour cycling workout.
