ole vault, rela teams strong Olson wasn't the pole vault's only strength, however. After vaulting all over Europe in the summer, senior Brad Pursley continually scored points for the Wildcats. Besides his vaulting victories Pursley near- ly won the South Plains Community Col- lege Decathlon at Texas Tech in November with 7,115 points. His score, only 32 points behind the winning score, set a school record.

In the pole vault Pursley set an indoor personal record of 18-OW in January at the Times-Herald Invitational Track Meet in Dallas. His outdoor best was 17-9. In Toronto, Pursley cleared 18 feet by several inches to take second place, just behind Olson. "Brad made the best jump I've ever seen him make in his life," said Olson. Other ACU vaulters were sophomore Bobby Williams, freshman Dale Jenkins and junior Tim Bright. Jenkins has an im- pressive personal best of 18-OW which he set at a practice meet in Abilene. Wildcat pole vaulters scored 1-2-3-4 at the NAIA outdoor meet and 1-2-3 or first and second on numerous occasions, making the pole vault a tremendous strength for the Wildcats. "Strength" also was a very appropriate word when describing senior Steve Parker. Parker ran his first race of the year in Kansas City against some world-class competition to win the 60-meter hurdles and tie the meet record with a time of 7.22 seconds. Parker won the 60-meter hurdles again at the Albuquerque Jaycee Indoor Meet with a time of 7.22 seconds, although he had set a personal record of 7.10 earlier in Dallas, the second best collegiate time in 1982. Although his team finished third in the NAIA Indoor Track and Field Champion- ships in Kansas City, Parker won the 60- yard hurdles in a meet record time of 7.19 seconds to capture his fourth NAIA in- dividual title. At the 55th annual Texas Relays, Parker exploded out of the blocks in first place and led the competition all the way through the tape in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 13.85. At Eastern New Mexico University, Parker set a school record in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 13.6. Actually, he did it twice W once in the preliminaries and again in the finals, running into a slight breeze. The powerful relay teams were a great asset to the menls track team, and senior Kriss Brooks was a great asset to the relay teams. Brooks was without injury for the first time since his freshman year. sl 'Mi Men's Track
