Transcript The Cougar trackmen, behind the expert coaching of Jack Patterson, placed second to Oklahoma A&M in the Missouri Valley Conference and ranked very high across the nation in sprints and relays. This may not sound too amazing, except when you consider the U of H track squad was only fifteen strong. They say solid competition is a great thing for perfection, and five times Coach Patterson had to watch his relay teams run second to the great Texas Longhorn teams. Four times, Texas had to establish new records to edge the frustrated Cougars. Coach Patterson is fast developing into one of the great track coaches. He has probably done more with less than any other coach. Working with a very thin squad, he molded runners into events they had never run before. Larry McBride ran the low hurdles for the first time this year and by the end of the year had developed into one of the top hurdlers in the Southwest. Our hats are off to a great coach and team who gave it all they had, but could not quite attain victory. As Harv Boughton, sports editor put it, "It's like climbing an unsealed mountain only to find somebody selling hot dogs on top." Kneeling and sitting: Cooper, Petkovsek, Clement, Richers, Boone. Standing, left to right: Spillios, Stegall, Jones, Fowler, Pruitt, McBride, Grainger, Mcllroy, Armstrong, Jett, Coach Patterson.
