Clackamas Community
College’s men’s track team
showed the big daddies of
track and field just how tough
they are in a select invitational
at Oregon State University last
weekend.
Competing against the
host school, two track clubs
from the Northwest, a Korean
national team and several
unattached tracksters, the
Cougars gave several outstan­
ding performances.
Topping Assistant Coach
Kelly Sullivan’s list was Brian
Abshire’s performance in the
1500 meters. Abshire’s time
and teammate Matt Parker’s
time were at the bottom of the
pack, but the Clackamas
distance ace was barely edged
out for second place with a
3:47.78 time. Parker placed
sixth with a personal best time
of 3:49.6.
Yul Provancha missed the
school record in the 800 meters
as he placed fifth in a field of
world class runners with a
1:51.3 clocking.
In the open 1500, the
Cougars were well represented
by a third, sixth and eighth
finish from Rob Durkee, Rob
Conner and Jeff Franklin. In
the sprints, Les Taylor placed
third in the 100-meter dash
with a time of 11.0. The
Cougars’ 400 relay squad plac­
ed second.
“It was really warm so we
got a lot of good times out of
the team. Also, competing at
this high of level is good for
us,” Sullivan said.
After a four-year absence
from competition Al Taylor
cleared 6’-8” in the high jump.
In this, only his second meet
of the season, Taylor missed
national qualifying by one
inch.
Sullivan also sent a group
of tracksters to another open
invitational at Linfield Col­
lege, where several Oregon
state colleges battled it out.
In the 800, Rob Roley
crossed the tape second with a
1:56.1 time for Clackamas. In
the same event, Scott Issaac
ran a personal best of two
minutes, good enough to earn
him fourth place. In the 5000,
Bill Bailey represented the
Cougs with a second place
finish, in a personal best of
15:48.
Ahead for Sullivan’s team
is a very prestigous invita­
tional at the University of
Washington. Nine Cougars
have been invited to the meet,
and Sullivan is looking for­
ward to it with dignity.
“This is probably the
number-one track event in the
Northwest. We are going to
have nine guys going, so we
will have one of the larger
teams there. We are really
pleased with that.”

The meet will take place
Friday and Saturday, and
features the best from around
the country.
“It is a fortunate oppor­
tunity for these guys. They are
going to be competing against
the premier runners in the na­
tion. But they wouldn’t have
been invited if they weren’t of
this caliber,” Sullivan said.
Track sponsors dance for funds
The men’s track team, in
a fund raising effort to cover
the expenses of travel to the
national track meet, will spon­
sor a dance to be held this Fri­
day from 9 p.m. to midnight
in the school’s community
center.
All of Clackamas County
is invited. There is a $3.00
cover charge.
