Transcript Ralph Miller, voted the Cougar's outstanding senior trackman, fires off the starting blocks in the 880-yard relay. Rich Levy hands the baton to Ralph Miller in the sprint medley relay as the Cougars break from even with Kansas State. Relays Spark Cougar Trackmen With only eight returning lettermen, Coach Johnny Morriss faced a severe manpower handicap for this season's track team. But the ever resourceful Morriss combined his meager squad into several relay teams, got good performances from some upcoming sophomores, and managed a highly respectable campaign. The sprint medley relay of Rich Levy, Ralph Miller, Victor Lopez, and Howie Ryan, and the distance medley of Miller, Terry Sweeney, Levy, and Ryan placed in almost all the meets. A four-mile squad of Ryan, Levy, Sweeney, and Faustin Baron managed a fine third at the Drake relays. Miller, named outstanding senior trackman, gave yeoman duty in numerous relays in addition to placing in many sprint contests. Ryan and Sweeny gave the Cougars strong contenders in the two and three mile runs, with Ryan recording a season best of 14.09 in the three-mile. Sparkling performances by sophomores Tony Pickett and Johnny Morriss III highlighted the cinder season. Pickett won his specialty, the 440-yard hurdles, at the mammoth Drake Relays, and recorded a 50.8 best in that event, making one of the nation's finer times. Morriss gained several first places'in the high jump and stopped the watches in a solid 14.0 for a high hurdles victory in his final meet. A complete absence of UH competitors in the weight events and scant participation in .the field contests kept the Cougars from placing higher in meets throughout the season, the exchange dead on lys. ck- 177
