TranscriptTrackmen to Compete In Central Collegiate

The SIU track squad will compete in the Central Colegiate Championships at Notre Dame today with at least four Salukis having a good chance to win high individual honors.
The Salukis, who have never placed higher than third in previous Central Collegiate meets, have a standout performer in shot put with George Woods, in broad jump with John Vernon, and in high jump with Tom Ashman and Mitch Livingston.
Coach Lew Hartzog is counting on team balance to do well in the other 10 events as well, and said, "This is the first time we've participated in the Central Collegiate with hopes of winning."
Woods has. established meet and field house records in all four of his appearances this season.
He won the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Association open title with a toss of 61 feet, 2.75 inches at Kansas City, Mo. At the Illinois Open, when SIU trackmen swept the field at the University of Illinois Armory, Woods was a keyman for the Salukis with a toss of 60 feet, 3 inches.
In a dual meet at University of Kansas, Woods put the shot 60 feet, 8.5 inches in Allen Field House, and was just one-fourth of an inch short of 61 feet in capturing the Michigan State relays.
High jumpers Livingston and Ashman have been competing neck arid neck all season, with Ashman holding the better mark at 23 feet, 9 inches, compared to Livings- top's 23-3.
Vernon's best effort in dual competition has been a 23 feet, 3.25 inch jump.
