Men' track team win national champion hi If Don Hood had been asked in the fall how the men's track team would have finished the year, he no doubt would have predicted a repeat of the Lone Star Con- ference meet win and an NAIA indoor ti- tle, as would have most track watchers. But instead the season amounted to "a huge disappointment indoorsw Hood said. The team had instance upon instance of bad luck at the February NAIA indoor meet and missed that title by four points. Then in April the men failed to capture the Lone Star Conference title. The loss was a break in four straight titles. However, Hood still was able to call the outdoor season Ha huge thrill" because the Wildcats went on to win two national championships - the NAIA and the NCAA Division II. After winning the NAIA outdoor meet, Hood said, "I've reached one of my life goalsfl The Wildcats hadn't won any na- tional titles since the 1950s when Olympic gold medalist Bobby Morrow was a Wildcat. This year, instead of. Bobby Mor- row, the talk was about Wildcat Billy Olson, a senior from Abilene. Olson, a world-class pole vaulter, set an American indoor record in September with a vault of I8-6Vz at the Olympic Invita- tional meet in East Rutherford, N.J. Olson broke Philadelphia and Kansas'City meet records in January when he vaulted I8-0 in Philadelphia and I8-l in Kansas City. Then, in late January at the Toronto Star Maple Leaf Indoor Games, Olson set an indoor world record with a vault of 18-8M. With his sights set on cracking the 19- foot barrier, Olson upped his world record in February to 18-9M: at the 22nd Portland Federal Mason-Dixon Games in Louisville, Ky. The senior then proceeded to break his record a second time a few weeks later at the Jack-in-th'e-Box Indoor Games in San Diego with a vault of I8-9Wl A few days later Olson soared over th: bar at 18-I0 at the NAIA Indoor Tracl and Field Championships in Kansas City to break the world record he set just day: before. In outdoor competition Olsonls opening vault of 18-3 set a Texas Relays meet ant Memorial Stadium record in early April By the season's end Billy hadn't reachec his goal of 19 feet. He did, however, take his fourth NAIA outdoor title to be the first person ever to win four NAIA indooi and four NAIA outdoor titles.
