Transcript Track Led by such outstanding field and track men as Al Lawrence, John Macy, Ollan Cassell, Pat Clohessy, and Barrie Almond to mention a few, it is no wonder that Coach John W. Morriss" team won track meets, was named the outstanding team at the Texas Relays, and had track members place in meets throughout the country. Probably the best showing of the season by the Cougar trackmen was at the Border Olympics, where U. of H. won second place in one of the most competitive track and field events in the nation. Fielding one of the best cross-country teams in the history of the school, the Cougars captured several first places in meets all over the country. The cross-country team was always sure to place at least two runners in the first five spots of the event. Up to this year, the Cougar cindermen could not boast of having won a first at the Texas Relays, but the jinx was broken this year as Macy won the 5000 meter event in a new collegiate record of 14:36.3. Adding a terrific amount of fame and prestige to the team was Lawrence, who won a berth representing Australia on the Olympic Team. His versatility ranged from running cross-country to holding the American national indoor two and three mile records. Living up to the title of "Outstanding Team" given to them by sportswriters at the Texas Relays, they captured more than half of the 16 events in the Missouri Valley Conference Relays to win the conference by a decisive margin. 334
