TranscriptSIU Trackmen to Vie Saturday Against Kansas State, Sooners

Two Big Eight Conference track teams will challenge SIU in a triangular meet Saturday at Manhattan, Kan.
Kansas State University, the host team, will have two indoor NCAA champions competing, miler Conrad Nightengale, and 440-yard dasher Don Payne.
Payne tied for first in his speciality with Oklahoma University's Bill Calhoun the last time they competed. Oklahoma is the third school entered.
Coach Lew Hartzog predicts an extremely close meet, depending on the availability of his long and triple jumpers, who should determine where the Salukis finish in the three team battle.
John Vernon, a sophomore from Nottingham, England, will definitely compete Saturday despite a slight muscle pull. He should win in the triple jump and place in the long jump if he's healthy.
Vernon has consistently gone over the 50-foot mark in triple jump, and set a 50 feet, 3 1/2 inch mark there last week in a triangular meet against the Saluki Track Club and Southeast Missouri State.
Vernon's roommate, Australian Ian Sharpe, may not be able to compete, because he is nursing a pulled leg muscle.
Sharpe, if he goes, could win the long jump and place in the triple jump.
Darrell Stein, Centralia, also has a pulled leg muscle, and may not be able to compete in the triple and long jumps.
Hartzog said he will decide this morning before the team leaves if Sharpe and Stein are able to go.
"I feel that with these boys healthy we'd have a good chance to win, " said Hartzog, "but regardless it will still be a great meet."
Other SIU competitors will be George Woods, who put the shot last week at McAndrew Stadium over the 60 foot mark, and Oscar Moore, who set a new mark in the 2-mile run with a clocking of 8:59.5 at the stadium.
After this week's competition, SIU will be back on the realy circuit again on April 29-30, for the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa.
The Saluki mile relayers are Robin Coventry, Ross MacKenzie, Jerry Fendrich and Gary Carr.
They set a time of 3:21.5 in last week's competition with the Saluki Track Club and Southeast Missouri.
