W A JOHN MACY, PAT CLOHESSY, BARRY ALMOND receive trophy for first place in the four mile relay from Texas Relays' Queen, Nancy Ellen Thompson. UH RELAY TEAMS EXCEL The UH thinclads, already nationally known, added to their reputation by setting new meet marks across the nation. It was especially the relay teams that shined. In almost every relay entered, they took one of the first three places. FOUR-MILE RELAY The four-mile relay team, composed of Al Lawrence, John Macy, Barry Almond and Pat Clohessy, set a new school record. Going into the West Coast Relays they were ranked second in the nation, and it was there the foursome ran the four miles in 16:57.6 to set the new mark. Members of this versatile team did well in the open mile as well as the half mile, two mile, and three mile runs. In the mile this season Almond led the foursome with a 4:07.8 clocking followed by Clohessy (4:09.7), Macy (4:13.4), and Lawrence (4:17.2). Almond and Clohessy ran the 880 in 1 :52.8 and 1:55.8 respectively. Clohessy, Lawrence and Macy competed in the two mile run. and each covered the distance in less than nine minutes. Macy participated in the three mile run with an excellent 13:54.9 clocking to hold the best time in the nation. MILE RELAY The foursome of Earl Harlan, Bob Waterman, Andy Anderson and Ollan Cassell recorded one of the nation's best times in the mile relay. The clocking of 3:10 was set in the Kansas Relays and was the third best in the nation. This team was spearheaded by speedy Ollan Cassell, who clocked a 47.4 in the 440 dash this season—one and two tenths off his all time best of 46.2. Cassell had times of 9.7 and 21.0 in the 100 and 220. Teammates Anderson and Harlan recorded 21.4 in the 220 while Waterman had a 53.8 in the 440 hurdles. 440 RELAY In the 440 relay the quartet of Joe Dow, Jim Parkhurst, Andy Anderson, and Ollan Cassell recorded another top time in the nation.
