Rochat, Mendoza take singles titles in Hondo Tennis Tourney
Boldly sporting a cap that pro-
claimed him an “ACE", Hondo junior
Jeff Rochat volleyed, smashed,
lobbed and aced his way to the boys
singles championship in the Hondo
Tennis Tournament last Friday and
While Rochat breezed through his
four matches, another Owl, senior
Debra Mendoza, had just as easy of a
time taking the girls singles title,
concluding her play with a 6-0,6-0 win
in the finals over Melissa Dunford of
Devine. Mendoza had defeated an-
other Arabian, Keri Crouch, in the
semifinals, 6-2, 6-2, but she had her
toughest match in the quarterfinals,
when she downed Cathy Hernandez
of DHanis, 6-3, 6-2. Mendoza opened
her title quest with a 6-0,6-1 win over
Tanya Sanchez of Southwest
Rochat’s scores were even more
one-sided. He opened with a 6-0, 6-0
win over Kevin Rohrbach of CHanis,
and followed that with a second-
round 6-2,6-1 win over Travis Rowell
of Stockdale. In the semis, he blanked
Wes Woods of Southwest. 6-0, 6-0,
before trouncing Rick Moreno of
Devine, 6-1, 6-0, in the finals.
Ben Lindsay of Hondo fell to
Moreno in the first round, 6-4, 6-0,
while Ophie Trevino lost a close girls’
opening-round match, 7-6, 5-7, 7-6 to
Kami Keller of Medina Valley.
In girls doubles play, the team of
Jana Muennink and Shelly Bragg won
twice, but eventually lost in the semis
to Yapp and McClure of Jourdanton
by a score of 6-7, 7-6, 64 They had
opened with a 6-4, 6-4 win over the
Stockdale team of Mamer and
Villarreal, and in the second round,
they disposed of Miskelly and
Ahmann from Randolph, 6-1, 64
Julie Keath and Melinda Meyer lost
an opening-round match, to Lopez
and Paniagua from Pleasanton, the
team which eventually took the
doubles title, by a score of 5-7, 6-4,

A Big East Party
Just like ESPN commentator and college hoop know-it-all
Dick Vitale has said for several years: “Ya cin’t beet Beeg
Or translated from Damn Yankee into English, ‘‘You
can’t beat Big East basketball!”
But you have to admit, he, seems to know what he’s
talking about. When three of the final four teams in the
64-team tournament come from the same conference, there
must be something good to be said about that loop. Luck, in
other words, had very little to do with it.
It should be a super Final Four in Lexington, Kentucky,
when defending national champion Georgetown locks
Hoyas with the St. John’s Redmen for the fourth time this
season, and in the other contest, the upstart of the bunch,
the Villanova Wildcats, will meet the “outsiders” from the
Metro Conference, the Memphis State Tigers.
Heck, if it weren’t for those party-crashing Tigers, it
could just as easily be the Big East Tournament. Just bring
in Syracuse or B.C.
What makes the accomplishment of the Big East teams
so impressive is the fact the all three, to advance the last
step to the Final Four, defeated teams from the conference
long-associated with everything that is good about
basketball, the Atlantic Coast Conference. And surprising-
ly, it was Georgetown that had the most difficulty, as they
got past a previously little-known (for basketball, anyway)
ACC school, Georgia Tech, 60-54.
St. John’s had a fairly easy time with 1983 champ North
Carolina State, 69-60, but the biggest margin belonged to
Villanova, which shot a torrid 76 percent in the second half,
and blew away 1982 kingpin North Carolina, 56 44. Not to be
overlooked, Memphis State did us all a favor by eliminating
What we have in the Final Four are some great teams.
Georgetown, of course, has Patrick Ewing, the All-World
big man, who will certainly be a very wealthy fellow in the
NBA a year from now. But the other three also have some
pretty good talent in the center with Ed Pinckney (VU),
Bill Wennington (SJ) and from MSU, two big, physical
dudes in the form of Keith Lee and William Redford.
oi. John’s, ot course, has in its told Chris Mullen and
Walter Berry, Georgetown adds Ralph*Dalton and Reggie
Williams, the Wildcats can claim the McClains, and the
Tigers possess “Mr. 0:01”, Andre Turner.
A lot of big guys and big names will be in the tournament,
but no matter who comes out on top, this year’s
aggregation will have some classic names floating about:
Georgetown has superstars Michael Jackson and Bill
Martin (which is Billy Joel’s real name), while Villanova
boasts of (and let’s all say it together) Dwaaaayyyynnnne
McClaaaainnnn None of these however, can hold a candle
to possibly the top name of the year, Memphis State’s
All name-dropping aside, this would be one of the best
tourneys ever assembled if Georgetown didn’t already have
it sewn up. But you never know, “Uncle Mo” just might
catch up with one of the other three.
Dick Vitale will eniov it.
Batot and Shahriyar Saremi were
defeated by Bronstad and Netardus
from Jourdanton, 6-3, 6-1.
Several entries in the tourney from
DTtanis fared pretty well. Vincent
Callieoatte made it to the semisfinals
in boys singles, after a 6-0, 6-2 win
over Darren Masters of M V, and a
6-3, 6-3 triumph over Owen Zeger
from Southwest He was then
defeated by Moreno. 6-1, 6-0
Two boys doubles teams from
DHanis reached the semisfinals
Rudy Hernandez and Troy Langfeld

THE CAP SAYS IT ALL.., "Ace" Jeff Rochat sailed through

round match, the left-handed Owl junior returns a backhand
