ln a tremendous season, highlighted by Tech's third straight
City Relays championship in as many years, the Benson frosh
continued to uphold this school's recognized quality as a
perennial track and field powerhouse. Spurred on by four first
place finishes at the relays and three first place finishes at the
city championship, the rookie spikers strode through a 6 win 1
loss season and claimed third place at the championship meet.
The relay title was made possible by an all-around team effort
with first places coming in both the sprints, distances. and
jumping events. The team opened with a victory in the distance
medley, came back right afterwards with a victory in the 880
relay. and then turned around with an unbelievable third
consecutive victory with a first place in the two mile relay. Off
the track a group of three Tech long jumpers claimed first in
the long jump relay. At the City Championship meet on
Jackson High's all weather rubber asphalt track the frosh
thinclads were hampered by the loss of leading point getter
Spence Gerber who acquired the flu bug a day before the
qualifying meet. But true to form. the Tech frosh still managed
to maintain a respectable third place finish with first place
points in the 440 yard relay, mile run, and 100 yard dash. The
sprint relay team of Keep, Burns, Farrell, and Roots ripped the
field in a blazing 47 seconds flat to garner 10 first place points
in that event. Rookie distance runner Bob Fulton claimed an
expected mile victory with a school record 4.37.6. and the
Tech sprint duo of Terry Burns and Jeff Roots went 1-2
respectively in the 100 yard dash.

The 1973 Tennis season was one of enthusiasm. Although
Benson's team was young and inexperienced they played their
best and proved themselves worthy opponents. A young team
lacks the knowledge and experience in tournament play, but
Benson learned some lessons from the strong teams in the
P.l.L. Wilson, an all senior team, scored a 5-O victory and
Lincoln, a young seasoned team, beat Tech 4-1 , with Ron Woo
the only Benson winner. Benson turned the wins to its side and
defeated Jefferson and Roosevelt 4-1, 4-1, respectively.
