Although the men’s track
managed to capture first-
place wins in seven different
events during their tri-meet last
week, the squad still came up
4.5 points short of victorious
Linn-Benton and had to settle
for second place.
Coach Buck Monroe com­
mented, “We won seven dif­
ferent events and probably
would have won the match if
Ousterhout could have run.”
Both were side-lined with in­
juries which prevented them
from competing.
Jeff Forrell captured three
individual first place spots, all in
the field events. Forrell won the
triple jump with a leap of 41’ 8-
3A.” He also won the long
jump with a 20’ 1 Vi” effort and
tied Rich Ferguson for a share
of first place in the high jump.
Ferguson also gained multiple
¡wins during the afternoon as he
tossed the javelin 172’ 2” to
take first in that event.

a time 43.6 to win that race.
John Martin took home the
gold in the 100-meter with an
11.2 time. Bob Judd won the
400-meter intermediate hur­
dles with a time of 58.9.
Coach Monroe offered these
comments on the match, “I feel
that Linn-Benton and our­
selves are pretty evenly mat­
ched and that if we would have
been at 100 percent we could
have beaten them.”
The tracksters will be back in
action this week as they host
