Two SIU trackman placed second Saturday in individual events at the Texas Relays in Austin.
George Woods made the best mark of his career in shop- put with a 62 feet, 1/2 inch throw, but that wasn't enough to take Texas A&M's Randy Matson, who had a , 65 feet, 4 1/2 inch throw.
Matson has put the shot over 70 feet before, and is the world champion. |
Oscar Moore, SIU's sophomore runner, placed second in the 3-mile event at Texas with a time of 13:39.7.
Malcolm Robertson of Southwestern Louisiana was first, with a 13:27.3.
Both times bettered the Relays record set in 1959 by Miles Eisenman of Oklahoma State University, 13:50.'9.
The resit of the SIU squad did not qualify, and a spokesĀ¬ man at the Arena said Coach Lew Hartzog was disappointed in this.
Hartzog had hopes of winning the distance medley, but Abilene Christian won that event.
There were 17 meet records broken at the Relays, in which only individual scores are kept, with no overall team winner.
SIU competes in the university division of the Relays, which is the first of the three most important relay meets in the outdoor track season.
The trackman will compete in the Kansas Relays on April 22-23, and in the Drake Relays April 29-30.
On Friday, the squad will host a quadrangular meet, with the SIU Track Club, the University of Chicago Track Club and DePaul competing against the SIU varsity.
