FACES IN THE CROWD

Author:

LARRY, MIKE AND CARIE MAXWELL
SALT LAKE CITY
Larry, 43, coached Highland High to the Utah 4-A basketball championship, and his star player was son Mike, a 6'1" senior guard who averaged 30.5 points to lead the state in scoring. A onetime all-state player himself, Maxwell has coached Highland to three Utah titles and an 18-year record of 291-121. Mike, who made the all-state team three times, is the first Utah schoolboy to score 2,000 points. Twelve-year-old Carie, Larry's daughter, is the only girl on the Upland Terrace Elementary School team. She is also a national finalist in the Pepsi Hot Shots competition, having won the city, state and Western titles. Two other Maxwells play basketball: Brent is a junior guard on his father's team, while 15-year-old Robert averaged 17 points in a youth league.

TIM GRENFELL
ALBUQUERQUE
Tim, a senior at Cibola High, won the New Mexico 145-pound wrestling championship and has now won titles in three different states. In 1977 he was the 138-pound champ in Montana, and in 1978 he was Arizona's 138-pound titlist.

BETTY CONSTABLE
PRINCETON, N.J.
Constable has coached the Princeton women's squash racquets team to six national collegiate titles, including the 1979 Howe Cup. A five-time U.S. champion as a player, Constable, 54, has an 89-7 record in eight seasons at Princeton.

NEIL SIMONS
SILVER SPRING, MD.
Simons, 20, paced Clemson to a 41-9 victory over North Carolina State by driving in 10 runs and hitting three homers, including a grand slam. An All-ACC outfielder the past two seasons, he is batting .323, with nine homers and 36 RBIs in 35 games.
