Transcript Cross-Country Squad Hero Of UH Track And Field Season Saving the UH track and field season from a bad case of the "blahs", the cross-country squad proved to be one of the best teams in the nation. Johnny Morriss' team of cross-country runners started the season successfully by capturing five of six triangular and quadrangular meets. The Cougar harriers lost their first meet at South McGregor Hills to Abilene Christian but came back to edge ACC in the Texas Invitational. The regular track season started successfully as Tony Pickett, one of the two Aussies on the squad, took first in the 300-yard run at the Will Rogers Indoor Track Meet and set a new school record of 21.2. Pickett came back in the Houston Invitational at Butler Stadium to win the 440-hurdles for UH. Doug Mathews proved to be the surprise of the Cougar-captured meet as he won first in the javelin throw. Things slowed down for the Cougars at the Border Olympics where they had to settle for run- nerup again and at the Texas Relays in Austin where UH put on a weak showing. At Austin the best UH could do was a second in the 440-yard relay run by the team of Warren McVea, Gary Friend, Pickett and Mike Simpson. Simpson starred again in the Mexico City Invitational as he grabbed firsts in the 100 mete!" and 200 meter springs. UH athletes operating under the Houston Track Club banner won the meet. Individual stars Pickett and Dave Cole stood out during the season and went on to enter the NCAA championship meet. Howie Ryan takes the baton, and the lead, from Scott Clark in the distance medley in the Houston Invitational at Butler Stadium.
