The team is coming off winning the singles and doubles titles of the Sun Bowl Invitational in El Paso. A&M Coach David Kent said he expects a good showing by his team in the tournament, which also in cludes teams from Trinity, TCU and the University of Texas. “It ought to be a pretty tough tournament,” Kent said. “Texas has an outstanding team, probably one of the top seven in the country, but I think we’ll have an outstanding tour nament judging by our workouts and our previous matches this fall.” The Westwood Invitational is an open-format tournament, instead of flighted competition. “This will give some of the No. 4 and 5 players a chance to knock off some of the favorites,” Kent said. Dean Johnson will enter the tour nament as A&M’s top player after capturing the singles title of the Sun Bowl Invitational. Marcel Vos and Dean Goldfine come into the tour nament as the No. 1 doubles team, while Johnson and Brent Haygarth are the No. 2 doubles entry. “Dean Johnson has been playing excellent tennis this fall,” Kent said, “and we have two great doubles teams in the tournament, so hope fully we’ll continue to be successful.” The tournament will conclude Sunday, ending the team’s official fall season. Both the men’s and women’s teams will play an exhibi tion match against UT Nov. 26, the day before the Texas A&M-Texas football game. “It could be a miserable weekend with the cold weather and every thing,” Kent said, “so if we do good, great, but if we mess up, we’ll have no excuses.” Aggies in NCAA cross country qualifying meet The Texas A&M cross country teams head to Georgetown Satur day for the District VI Cross Country Championships.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Former Cy Young Award winner LaMarr Hoyt pleaded guilty Thursday to two mis demeanor drug charges and agreed to serve at least 60 days in a federal prison. Hoyt, a member of the San Diego Padres, told U.S. Magistrate Roger McKee that he understood the plea bargain reached by federal prosecu tors and his attorney. It includes a fine of up to $5,000, five years of probation, submission to regular drug testing and forfeiture of his 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo sports car, valued at $33,000. “Basically for the next five years, his physical condition is going to be monitored by the U.S. probation de partment and if he gets involved with drugs again he can be brought back before Magistrate McKee, and he can be sent back to jail for a year,” assistant U.S. Attorney Pat Swan said. Hoyt, 31, pleaded guilty to misde meanor charges of possessing Va lium, a tranquilizer, and propoxy phene, a painkiller. The plea agreement avoided a criminal indictment on felony charges and penalties of up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for possession of the propoxyphene. Illegal possession of Valium carries a maximum five-year prison term and a $250,000 fine. If McKee approves the agreement at a sentencing hearing Dec. 16, he will order the 60-day prison term on the Valium possession count and a one-year suspended sentence and five years probation on the propoxy phene count. Hoyt’s arrest on Oct. 28 at the San Ysidro Port of Entry was his third this year on drug-related charges. Hoyt was detained after a U.S. Customs Service inspector spotted a bulge in his clothing as Hoyt waited to enter the United States from Mex ico in the pedestrian line at the bor der crossing. A body search revealed two bags containing nearly 500 pills. On Feb. 10, Hoyt was detained at the border crossing and paid a $620 fine after agents confiscated Valium and a small amount of marijuana. Eight days later Hoyt was stopped by San Diego police, who found mari juana and an illegal switchblade knife in his car. Hoyt pleaded guilty to a public nuisance charge and was placed on probation for three years. Four days after spring training began, Hoyt entered a drug rehabili tation center in Minnesota and re joined the Padres in April. He posted an 8-1 1 record last season. Hoyt remains on the Padres’ 40- man roster and is under contract through the 1989 season. In the past, the team has traded players with recurring drug problems.
