Southern Sweeps Track Meet, Three Stadium Records Fall

Southern's track team literally ran away from its competitors in the triangular meet against Southeast Missouri and the Saluki Track Club.
Southern tallied 100 points
compared to 51 for Soutneast and 27 for the track club. Despite the cool temperatures and threatening skies, three McAndrew Stadium records fell in the Friday meet.
SIU's Oscar Moore set a new mark in the two-mile run with a clocking of 8:59.5. The old mark of 8:59.6 was set three years ago by Bill Silverberg of Kansas.
Moore turned in a much better time for the event during the recent Florida Relays when he turned the course in 8:41.9.
John Vernon, a sophomore from Nottingham, England, cracked another mark with a leap of 50 feet 3 1/2 inches in the triple jump. He had held the former stadium record of 48 feet 1/2 inch. The other mark to tumble came in the broad jump when SIU freshman Roger Phillips competing for the Saluki Track Club, leaped 23 feet 2 1/2 inches.
