Transcript CROSS COUNTRY TRACK TEAM: Rusty Burger, Bob Gardiner, David Roeber, Leonard Hilton, Terry Sweeney, Scott Clarke and Ben Rosario. Sweeney flies over a 3000-meter steeple chase hurdle, top right. Bottom left, Pickett moves out in the 440-yard dash. 194 Track and Cross Country Teams Record Good Marks Starting with one of the youngest US cross country and track teams ever, Coach Johnny Morriss was very pleased with the teams' season performance. In cross country the perennially strong Coogs started off with a win over the powerful Houston Track Club and ended with an eleventh place finish at the National Federation Meet in Laramie, Wyoming. In between were victories over such notables as Texas A&M and a mighty Army team from Ft. Sam Houston. Through all of the meets, sophomore Leonard Hilton stood out. He closed out the year just missing the All- American team by three seconds. On the track side of the ledger, Houston was strong in the sprints, hurdles and relays, while the city provided rain, wind and cold. The early outdoor season made the Cougars wonder whether they were runners or ducks. One Houston meet was cancelled and many others were frost- biters. Despite these hazzards, Houston speedsters turned in some fine times. Mike Simpson sped to a 9.4 and 21.2 clocking in the 100- and 220- yard dashes. Tony Pickett, Mr. Versi- tle, seemed to pop up everywhere. He made starts from the 440 dash, 120 high hurdles, 440 intermediate hurdles, plus the 440, 880, mile and dis tance relays. Johnny Morriss III also made the rounds, running the 120 high hurdles, 440 hurdles and high jumping. Some of the year's better times were Simpson's 9.4 hundred, Morriss' 13.9 in the highs, Pickett's 52.4 and David Cole's 52.8 in the 440 hurdles. A 4:10.6 mile was run by Scott Clarke and the mile relay time of 3:10.7 goes to the credit of Marvin Mayes, Louis Vicenik, Pat Studdert and Pickett. As the Coogs lose only two seniors —Pickett and Terry Sweenet—Coach Morriss can look forward to another fine track team. 195
