Transcript TRACK Cougar Stars Shine At Major Track Meets The track team followed the lead of the so-called major sports in 1952, entering and making respectable showings in a number of important meets. At the Fort Worth Relays on March 14, for example, the Cougars came in second to S.M.U., easily beating out Arkansas and Baylor. The Border Relays, the Kansas Relays, and the famed Drake Relays were also on the Cougar schedule. It was the first year for the Cougars in these latter two meets—two of the big annual national events in track. Nick Spillios, shot put artist, speedster Larry McBride, and the 440, 880, and mile relay teams were always up there among the top entries against the nation's best. In the Missouri Valley Oudoor Track and Field Tournament at Stillwater, Oklahoma, Houston placed second in the conference with 65 points. The Cougars lost to Oklahoma A&M. Six firsts, five second places, three third places, one fourth, and two fifth places accounted for the Cougar points. First row, left to right: Tim Gentry, Larry McBride, Charles Petkovsek, Don Tomasco, Kirby Jett, James Skaines. Second row: Danny Boone, Frank Green, Nick Spillios, Jerry Lust, Wes Richers, Bob Moore. Third row: Dick Scott, Gerald Wright, Victor Treat, George Armstrong, Sammie Adams, Allen Brown, George Slade. Fourth row: Elton Cotton, Coach Jack Patterson. WESLEY RICHERS, 440-yd Dash
