Minus the dynamic strength that usually accompanies a Brackenridge track team, the Eagle tracksters did, to a cer- tain degree, relinquish their, heretofore, firm hold on the track crown. Finishing fourth in the Border Olympics, the Brack- enridge cinder pounders an- nexed nine points. ln the Alamo Heights Invitation Track Meet the Eagles were led by galloping Tommy Tope as they racked up 40 points, placing second be- hind the Ieff Nags who had 53 points. Iames Strong and lack Daniels both turned in sparkling performances. Em- met Howe was spectacular because of the fact that he consistently broke the record in the mile run in every meet he entered. ,,......----- 1"""" Q. .xii sa, Looming large and favor- ably as they entered the City Meet the Eagle squad lashed out with astonishing and tell- ing effect. The Birds fell in line, however, behind the great running machine of the lefferson Mustangs as they finished second in this meet. Of notable importance this year was the lack of capable sprinters which was costly to the struggling Birds. Tommy Tope, however, proved his worth as a hustling hoofster by grab- bing three first places, the high and low hurdles and the high jump, enabling him to finish as individual high scorer. Charles Seidemann, Iohn Cullen, and Leslie Ger- mer were instrumental in the Eagles' gallant attempt to gain track supremacy. -Pat Maloney 8 fe ' TOP TRACK TEAM Ilzleift, Pgatt, I-lifcgldvegai seated: Smppenbqckl I3 P f Brackenridge dis- tance runners.
