DETROIT-The Salukl track
team was caught short on Its
youth and lack of experience
during the NCAA track and
field championships i n the
motor city's Cobo Arena.
Before capacity crowds both
days. SIU's contingent of eight
men including live freshmen
had its share of disappointment, ending the weekend competition with five points and
nineteenth place.
Alan Robinson, the lone
.senior competing for the Salukla In Detroit, stayed in the
pack for tiie first 15 of the
22 laps In the two mile and
then took the lead with three
laps left.
Jerr7 Richey of the University of Pittsburgh caught him
at the wire. Both were timed
in 8:39.2 but Richey waa unquestionably the winner. Both
became All-Americas.
For Robinson it was his last
chance for an NCAA champion-
-ttip.
Sprinter Ivory Crockett
spoke well for both his coach
and his team mates following
his upset In an early elimination heat in the 60-yard dash.
Crockett finished in 6.4 falling
to crack the event's quarterfinal.

. "The whole team gave their
best regardless of what place
we came In/' said the freshman from Webster Groves,
Mo. "I think the whole team did
a good job. 1 was disappointed
because we came so far with
a lot of hopes and dreams
that didn't develop."
Leading off the distance
medley relay with the half-
mile leg, Glenn UJlye fell on
the first turn and the race
was restarted. The Junior from
Canada never cou!d get going
ana SIU placed fifth in the e-
vent which included freshman
Larry Mobley in the 440 leg,
sophomore Ken Nalder In the
3/4 mile leg and Robinson in
the mile anchor leg. SlU'a time
was 10:02.
Obed Gardiner admitted he
couldn't get his steps right
in the triple jump. Gardiner's
best effort was 4S-7 while Don
Miller went 49-2. Both are
freshmen from the Bahamas.
"I shall return." were Gardiner's words as he left Cobo
Arena, echoing the famous
saying from General Mac-
Arthur.
High jumper Mike Bernard,
also a freshman from California, failed to clear the opening
NCAA height of 6-7.
