BOATING—No one was any finer than 58-foot DYNA in the Annapolis-to-Newport race. Clayton Ewing's aluminum-hulled yawl, which once raced 1,000 miles without a rudder, completed the 468-mile course in 66:18:42 to win the event for the second time.
After the fourth day and the 44th race on Lake St. Claire, the UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND was declared the North American collegiate sailing champion. San Diego State finished second.
FENCING—ALEX ORBAN won the national amateur saber title and led the NEW YORK ATHLETIC CLUB to the team championship at UCLA. JOE ELLIOTT of Los Angeles won the �p�e and ROBERT RUSSELL, a New York garment cutter, took the foil. JANICE LEE ROMARY repeated as the women's foil champion, and the SALLE SANTELLI fencers—two New Jersey school teachers and two secretaries—won the women's team trophy.
FOOTBALL—The EAST beat the West 34-14 in the All-America game in Buffalo as San Francisco 49er rookie Ken Willard ( North Carolina), voted the Most Valuable Player, gained 133 yards in 18 carries and New York Jet $200,000 Quarterback John Huarte (Notre Dame) threw two TD passes and scored once (page 16).
GOLF—Fun-loving RAYMOND FLOYD shot rounds of 66-70-65-69 to win the $100,000 St. Paul Open with a 14-under-par 270, four strokes ahead of second-round leader Tommy Aaron and Gene Littler. It was the third time in 13 weeks that Aaron, who has never won a tournament, blew an early-round lead. His explanation: "My game isn't good. That makes it hard to hold on for four days."
South African COBIE LeGRANGE shot a nine-under-par 279 in wild and woolly weather to win the Pringle of Scotland tournament at Barnton. Bernard Hunt was second, three shots back, and a tired Kel Nagle, runner-up in the U.S. Open a week earlier, staggered in 15 strokes behind LeGrange.
The hotshots of college golf made a mighty splash in the NCAA championships at Knoxville's Holston Hills Country Club as they came up with two holes in one, 10 eagles, 41 subpar rounds and, along the way, a ball hit into the swimming pool. Team winner, for the ninth time in 10 years: the UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON. Individual winner: Houston's MARTY FLECKMAN, with a seven-under-par 67-68-72-74—281.
At last, precocious, six-time Pee Wee champion ROBERTA ALBERS has a title to talk about. The Floridian, now 18 and a freshman at the University of Miami, won the women's collegiate championship by defeating Rhonda Glenn 12 and 11 in the 36-hole final played in Gainesville, Fla.
Blonde CAROL MANN (6-foot-2, eyes of blue), shooting a 211, finished three strokes ahead of Marlene Hagge (5-foot-2, eyes of brown) to win the 54-hole Lady Carting Open in Ellicott City, Md. French Amateur titlist Catherine Lacoste, playing in her first U.S. tournament, finished ninth with a 223.
HARNESS RACING—Happy in the worn leather hopples he raced in at home, New Zealand-bred ORETI ($4.70) outlasted fast-moving Cold Front in Roosevelt's $25,000 Duane Hanover Pace to win by a neck. In his previous U.S. race the homely-looking gelding had performed badly in plastic American hopples.
