FROSH BASEBALL SCOREBOARD
SEASON RECORD 5 2
Page 116 text:
1972 was a season of prospective outlooks as the frosh
baseball squad showed many factors toward the oncoming
years at Tech. Tim Gleason lead the team in batting with a
.423 batting average. McGee. Dodd. Spencer and Gleason
were all recommended for their good sound batting by the
freshmen coach Mr. Vern Melvin. Craig Howe and the other
preceeding three freshmen maintained a solid .350 or better.
As a whole the frosh batters achieved a .297 average. The
freshmen also had sound fielders and should supply the J.V.
and varsity program with continued fine material.

The 1973 Varsity track season was very remarkable. Yet
there was a problem of getting the returning Iettermen out.
Dispite these difficulties, the Tech team won the West Division
The weight men and the pole vault were a little unsturdy,
but improvements were made. New poles and a new javelin
were purchased in the latter part of the season.
There were exceptional performances from the distance
runners. Dan Fulton acquired the city title in the two mile for
the second straight time. Paul Durant, a high jumper, cleared
6'7 M" for the city record. These two were classified as the
most outstanding trackmen for the '73 season. Bob Cervenka
also won the javelin in the city meet throwing it 188 feet.
These three men qualified for the state meet at the University
Unfortunately, the top three West Division teams tied at the
end of the season for first place. A runoff was made and
Benson came out on top winning with 71 points to Lincoln's
65 and Jackson's 34.
The Tech track members met Marshall for the city dual meet
title two days later. The results were slim. Racing two days
after a tough meet against Lincoln and Jackson, many runners
were in a slump and many didn't want to race. Marshall did
take the city title from Benson, but Tech held it close to the
Head coach Floyd Simmons and assistant coaches McNeil
and White helped keep the team on the pace.
