as Poor- Season
The '72 season was a real test for the Tech frosh, since the
majority of the runners had no previous experience in running
cross country. They had a disappointing season losing every
race but one. Due to lack of publication or lack of interest
among the incoming frosh, the turn out was very small. The
frosh were led by Tom Wylam who finished fourth in the city
meet. Dennis Crombie, coming late to the team, also showed
well placing twentieth.

Benson's 1972 swim team produced a carbon copy
performance of last year's results by finishing off the season
with a four win two loss record, losing once again only to
Lincoln and powerful Wilson. Senior Clark Luse, juniors Rob
Wilson and Jeff Luse, and sophomore Bob Fleming were cited
for outstanding achievement. Some factors which made it hard
on this year's team were the absence of a pool for the team to
work out in and the loss ofjunior letterman Russ Fleming who
injured his foot while running for Tech's cross country team.
The only Tech swimmers to qualify for the P.l.L. city meet were
brothers, Clark and Jeff Luse. Clark qualified in the 100 yard
breaststroke and finished a strong fourth, while Jeff competed
in the 100 yard butterfly and also came in fourth. Another high
point for the Tech swimmers was when Rob Wilson came
within seven tenths of a second from the city record in the 50
yard freestyle at the first meet of the season against Roosevelt.
The team is looking forward to another winning season and
another shot at the city title.
