Aquaducks Wallop OSC
72-12 in Last Dual Meet
Last Saturday afternoon in the
Oregon State College men’s pool
this year's edition of the Oregon
Aquaducks wound up their dual
meet competition with a fine 72-12
trouncing of the Oregon State
swimming team. They had earlier
beaten the Beavers 74-10.
ALTHOUGH THE POINT totals
show the victory to have been an
easy one for the Ducks it does not
show that the varsity was definite
ly off. Coach John Borchardt will
have plenty to say about that this
week in the men’s pool as the team
prepares for Friday’s and Satur
day’s Northern Division champion
LEADING THE Dueks were
Louis Santos and Earl Walter. San
tos was high point man winning
the 220-yd. freestyle, the 100-ycl.
freestyle and anchoring the final
winning relay team.
Walter came through with a fine
leg on the winning relay team, a
second in the 150-yd. backstroke,
and a record smashing effort in the
final event of the day.
It was in the 200-yd. individual
medley that Walter set another
record which has become one of the
bywords of this year’s team. He
easily broke the existing stand
ard' of Hannnla from WSC by ten
