Transcript The UH cross-country squad got caught with its pants down in the 1968 NCAA meet but the subsequent embarrassment failed to dim what had been a brilliant season. Due to a time mixup, UH harrier Scott Clarke was changing clothes when the starting gun sounded. As a result UH failed to place among the top ten finishers. But the team still finished with a record to be proud of, winning six out of seven regular season meets. The only loss came against SMU in the Texas Invitational. Coach Johnny Morriss shifted gears in December as cross-coun try season faded away and spring brought track and field. Two of Morriss' harriers, Eric Sigmont and Leonard Hilton, won distinction and possible NCAA post-season meet berths in their track roles. Hilton specialized in the mile run, his best time being a 1969 Texas high of 4:05.3. The time was also a UH school record. Hilton received the outstanding performer award at the UH track banquet. Johnny Morriss III also qualified for the NCAA meet with a 13.9 second time in the high hurdles. Harrier's misfortune fails to tarnish season Far left, Scott Clarke battles LSU limner down to the wire. Above left, Leonard Hilton lopes along behind Lamar Tech runner in cross-country competition.
