BOATING Two-man crews of U.S. university students, sailing 12-foot Fireflies for three days on Welsh Harp Lake near London in a best-of-nine-races competition with the British, won the Lipton Cup, 5-1.
Winners of five national championship competitions held in the East and Midwest last week were: BARTON JOHNCKE, who took the International Luders 16 class title in Chicago; JOSEPH C. OLSON, who won a record third consecutive Atlantic class competition off Westport, Conn.; RON DOUGHERTY, who gained the 110 class title in Wilmette, Ill.; GEORGE F. PAGE, who became Rainbow class champion on Lake George, N.Y.; and JOHN MARSHALL, who captured the 5-0-5 class in Larchmont, N.Y.
BOXING—DON FULLMER, brother of former Middleweight Champion Gene, gained a unanimous 12-round decision over Welterweight Champion Emile Griffith in a nontitle fight in Salt Lake City. Outweighing Griffith by seven pounds, Fullmer used a heavy body attack to good advantage as he moved his opponent from one corner to the other to win by a narrow margin.
Olympic heavyweight gold medalist JOE FRAZIER stopped his first professional opponent, Woody Goss, with a series of left hooks at the opening bell in a preliminary bout in Philadelphia. The referee halted the fight after 1:42 of the first round.
CYCLING—SKIP CUTTING of Riverside, Calif. gained the 4,000-meter pursuit title at the National Amateur Track championships in Encino, Calif. when he defeated Doug Burnett of Escondido, Calif. in 5:12.6. In other major events Olympian JACK SIMES III of Closter, N.J. emerged from the match sprint finals as the national all-round titlist, while his Olympic teammate, BILL KUND of Los Angeles, took the 10-mile championship.
FISHING—The International Tuna Cup Match, discontinued in 1958 because of an altered migration pattern among the bluefins and renewed this year now that the fish are back in Nova Scotia waters, was won by the U.S. when, on the last day of the tournament, JAMES HUTTON of Rye, N.Y. brought to gaff a 603-pounder. Hutton's catch gave the Americans 2,107 points to the second-place Caribbean team's 1,165.
GOLF—The USGA Girls' Junior Amateur championship went to GAIL SYKES, 17, of Schenectady, N.Y., when she defeated Mary Louise Pritchett, 16, of Raleigh, N.C. 5 and 4 in the final at the Hiwan course in Evergreen, Colo. (page 16).
HARNESS RACING—BRET HANOVER suffered his first defeat in 36 races when he lost to Adios Vic, in the first heat of the Review Futurity for 3-year-old pacers at Springfield, Ill., by a length and a quarter. Bret came back to win the race, however, with a 1:59[2/5] second heat, leaving Adios Vic behind by a nose.
Race Time, who was such a heavy favorite in the $100,000 Empire Pace at Yonkers that no one was allowed to bet on him, won as expected, by three lengths over Palm Reward ($23.80).
