Rudich wins All-
Services golf playoff

Marcie Rudich defeated Mona Kim in a sudden-death playoff to win the All-Services Women's Golf Invitational at the Hickam Malamala Course in windy conditions yesterday.

Rudich, a semifinalist in last year's Hawaii State Women's Golf Association match play championship, shot a final-round 76 to tie first-round leader Kim with a 36-hole score of 157.

UNLV tops Hawaii Pacific

Home runs by Ryan Ludwick in a three-run first inning and Jesse Pryor in the second helped the Nevada-Las Vegas baseball team defeat Hawaii Pacific, 7-4, yesterday at Hans L'Orange Park.

UNLV (16-20) sealed the victory with three more runs in the seventh.

Deric Yanagisawa had two hits and Shane Lyons two RBIs for the Sea Warriors (30-10).

Vulcans swept on road

Kevin Reese went 3-for-4 in the first game and homered in the second as San Diego swept a baseball doubleheader from visiting Hawaii-Hilo, 15-6 and 6-5, yesterday.

Joe Lima had three hits, including a two-run homer, in the nightcap for the Toreros (19-13). The Vulcans fell to 6-28.

Dorian wins Rip Curl heat

Shane Dorian, a finalist in last year's event, was the only heat winner from Hawaii in yesterday's first round of the Australian Rip Curl Pro surfing meet at Winkipop near Bells Beach.

Hawaii's John Shimooka and Sunny Garcia were second in their three-man heats.

Kaipo Jaquias, Ross Williams, Andy Irons, Pancho Sullivan and Kalani Robb settled for thirds. Andy Irons was a first-round no-show because of flight complications.

Australian Luke Egan paced the field by scoring 23.95 points out of 30 in winning his heat.
