The dynasty fCont.j showed the first glimmer of a potential national championship team. In the role vault, Dale jenkins elevated his way past the 18-foot narrier to go 18-4 and win the college division. In the 400- neter dash, Phillips broke the 46-second barrier. He had run under 46 seconds in every race since. For the third year in a ow, the Wildcats were invited to the 7-11 Invitational, eaturing Texas-El Paso, Southern Methodist CNCAA indoor ,nd outdoor championsj, Southern California and Angelo State, At that point in the season, Hood was getting an idea if how strong his squad actually was. When asked whether re felt honored to compete with such NCAA giants as SMU .nd USC, Hood said, "I think it's an honor for them to have is come. Where else do you have such great athletes like enkins, Pursley, Phillips and the rest ofthem?" joel Hood, manager of the team, said SMU track coach vlonty Stratton wasn't all that excited. "He was an ACU graduate," said the younger Hood. "He doesn't like to lose to us. He didn't enter an event that he knew we would win." SMU didn't enter the 400-meter relay, but ACU still had UTEP and powerful USC to contend with. The race proved the Wildcats' prowess: Tommy Thompson pulled away from the USC anchorman to give ACU the victory. After competing successfully at the Mount San Antonio College Relays in Walnut, Calif., the Wildcats received a major setback at the LSC meet in San Marcos. Needing a win in the mile relay to win the conference championship, ACU got two strong final legs to win the event and the meet. Or so they thought. Meet officials ruled that when Witherspoon cut in front of ASU's runner on the third leg, he didn't give him enough room. ACU was disqualified, thus losing the conference championship. "It was all a bunch of nonsense," said a frustrated Hood. "You could see he gave him plenty of room." Lett: Shotputtsr David Simmons grimacos as he throws the shot in Gray Stadium. Flight: Danny Kittley and Matt Minson had only each other to contend with down to the tap. .L .mas -s-W , ' V Meds Track! 199
