Lyle Shelton, a commercial airlines pilot from Granada Hills, Calif., won the unlimited class at the National Championship Air Races at Reno, flying an 8F8 Bearcat at a record speed of 429.916 mph. He bettered his own 1973 record by almost two mph.

Chuck Larriviere, 14, of Broussard, La., won world age-group (13-14) titles in trampoline and double mini-tramp at the World Age-Group Championships in Toronto. Chuck practices with the University of Southwestern Louisiana trampoline team.

Lawrence Reid, a 6'2", 210-pound senior halfback who plays for Philadelphia's Cardinal Dougherty High School, rushed 38 times for 384 yards and five touchdowns against Bishop Egan. Despite his heroics, Cardinal Dougherty was tied 41-41.

Grant and Mickey Anderson, of Portland, Ore., scored back-to-back holes in one playing the par-3 14th hole at the Waverley Country Club. Mickey, 55, who carries a 20-stroke handicap, used a five-wood for her 120-yard shot from the ladies' tee, from which the green cannot be seen. Grant, 65, a 13-handicapper, then hit a six-iron from the men's tee, 146 yards away. Unaware of their achievement until they reached the green. Grant and Mickey found an excited group of players who, from a nearby tee, had watched both balls drop into the cup.
