JOHN ALIRE
SANTA FE, N. MEX.

This is an article from the March 12, 1979 issue

LEONARD ROYBAL
SANTA FE, N. MEX.

Afire, 45, and Roybal, 38, have coached their respective Santa Fe High teams to a total of seven state championships in the last five years. Alire's boys' cross-country squads have won the title four times since 1974, and his 1978 team took the AAU national age-group championship in Albuquerque. Roybal coached the girls' volleyball squad to the state title this year, the boys' basketball team to the AAAA crown in '78 and the boy golfers to the championship in '76.

MIKE MALISZEWSKI
BUFFALO
Mike, an eighth-grader at Transfiguration Grammar School, scored 79 points in the Tigers' 100-44 basketball win over St. John Kanty. A 5'11" guard with a 38.3-point average, he broke his own league single-game record of 66.

PEGGY ANN CLASEN
ST. PAUL
Peggy Ann, 9, broke the track records for her age group in the four races she entered at the Great Lakes Speedskating Championships in Milwaukee. She won the 200 meters (23.63), 300 (32.15), 400 (44.64) and 500 (57.14).

DARREN DAYE
MISSION HILLS, CALIF.
Darren, a 6'7" forward and perhaps the top schoolboy player in Southern California, averaged 31.4 points and 13.9 rebounds for John F. Kennedy High. A two-time all-Los Angeles selection, he scored 1,837 points in three years.

STEPHEN SLOAN
NEW YORK CITY
Sloan, a 46-year-old real-estate investor, boated the largest billfish ever taken on 30-pound tackle when he caught an 862-pound black marlin off Lizard Island, Australia. He was trolling with rigged mackerel and battled the fish for 37 minutes.
