In 15 Years
pushed Benson away from the win.
GRANT TAKES THE TECHMEN AGAIN
Coming up against Grant for the second time in a row, the
team stood a good chance to take the Generals this time. but
most of the Benson runners had themselves psyched-out. They
ran a terrible race and were walked all over by the Generals
with a score of 23-32. Roosevelt and Washington teams
dropped out at the last moment.
TECH DEFEATED BY JACKSON RAIDERS BY TWO POINTS
Being the last meet of the pre-city playoffs, Tech was still
without runner, Russ Fleming, who was recovering very slowly
from an injury. Benson runners are still depressed about their
last two meets letting Jackson slip by winning with a slim
margin 37-39. Tech runner Dan Fulton, remained undefeated
throughout the season.
TECHMEN GAIN CITY TITLE BY WIDE MARGIN
Benson had not won a city championship in cross country
for fifteen years, so hopes were up for the 1972 city meet. The
Tech team, trying to take revenge on the other teams for their
last four losses, wanted to improve and make a good showing.
Ninety-one runners lined up at the starting line. It was a hard
race, but turning up at the finish was Dan Fulton to take the
individual title and following was the Tech team to take the city
championship by a respectable margin. The 1972 city
championship team: Dan Fulton, Frank Wylam, Bob Fulton,
Russ Fleming, Mark Lasley. Wayne Goldsmith and Ken
Hamilton were proud of their win.
TECH TAKES CHANCE AT STATE
The team thought the city meet was tough, they hadn't seen
anything yet. The state meet was a different story. Teams from
all over the state were trying to do the same thing Benson was
trying to do . . . win. Runners were striding through swamps,
over hills, around lakes, not mentioning the pushing, the
shoving and other slight unseen fouls throughout the race.
Other than that, it was just an everyday cross country race
covering 2.5 miles.
