Transcript CROSS COUNTRY TEAM WINS NATIONAL HONORS The distance runners for the University of Houston brought home the National Championships from both the NCAA and AAU Cross-country meets. This marks only the third time in track history that one team has won both titles within a year. It was the thin Australian, Al Lawrence, who paced the torrid distances in both meets to net first places for Houston. First, at the NCAA Meet on November 21, at Michigan State University, Lawrence toured the four-mile course in the creditable time of 19:28.2 minutes. Placing second was teammate John Macy, with a 19:44 clocking. Macy's second place made it a decisive victory for Houston. Other Cougars to place in the meet were: Barry Almond, 8th; Pat Clohessy. 11th; and George Rankin, 50th. ^ AL LAWRENCE BREAKS THE TAPE in East Lansing, Michigan, to set a new course record and win the NCAA Cross-Country Championship. The University's cross-country team then journeyed to Louisville for the AAU Meet on Thanksgiving Day. In this meet, Lawrence ran each mile in the six-and-a-quarter mile run in a little over five minutes to win the endurance race with a 31:20.8 minute time. Teammates to place at this meet were: John Macy, 6th; Barry Almond, 9th; Geoff Walker, 15th and Pat Clohessy, 18th. Although this marks the first time that Houston has won both meets, it was a repeat performance for Al Lawrence, who won these contests last year. TRODDING THROUGH THE WOODS is outstanding cross-country runner John Macy. 322
