Moser, Wyatt, and Dryden, members of the State and National Championship Relay Team of last year. were among the veterans, also Cogdell. a dash man of last season. The 1933 squad appeared to be a cinder team, as there were very few field aspirants. Having worked out for nearly a month, the Eagles entered the Lubbock Invitation Tournament on April 1. Coach Mayhew took five of his choice track men. Willard Moser was the big attraction of the meet, winning the 100-yard dash in 10 flat, and the 440 in 53.6. He also ran the anchor lap on the winning relay team. Cogdell ran third in the 100 and Wyatt finished third in the 440. to give the Eagles a total of 19 points. While these five men were at Lubbock. the rest of the Eagles entered an invitation meet held at Abilene Christian College, and placed third. Austin was the only Eagle to get a first place, winning the 880. MCDBHTIHHH was the high scorer, making 6 points, while the rest of the Eagles raised the total to 19 3-4-.
