Transcript Team Ends Sixth Home, home on the range is where the rifle team resides. The sitting, prone and standing men finished number two in the nation in ROTC firing and the varsity team finished sixth. In the National Rifle Association's sectional meet, held at UH, the Cougar rifles finished first, just 13 points below the national record. The Coogs also won the big 4th Army, Southwest Association, Oklahoma Invitational and Central Texas championships. Individually, Jim Fuquay, had the high varsity average, while Jessie Fer- rell was top man on the number one (Post ranked) freshman team. Although this year's team is losing three of its top shooters, replacements should come easily from the fine freshman team. Saunders Award for Outstanding Athlete-Scholar For the second straight year the university's highest athletic award, the Saunders Award, was presented at the baseball banquet in the Astrodome Club. The Saunders Award is presented annually to the UH athlete considered to have excelled most in scholarship, leadership and athletic ability. The recipient, Tom Paciorek, joins such Cougar greats as Danny Boone (track), Ted Luckenbill (basketball) Pat Clohessy (track), Kermit Zarley (golf), Hoist Paul (football) and last year's winner Bo Burris (football and baseball). Paciorek was a three year starter in both football and baseball. He was a baseball All-American and carried a B average through school. As a member of the baseball team, Tom was the man the Cogs looked to for the big hit or the big play. As one pro baseball scout commented, "He can beat you hitting, running, throwing and thinking"—a fitting tribute to a great athlete-scholar. 207
