On May 3rd, at Alexandria, La., the team went to the third S. I. A. A. district meet, where competition was strong. The Choctaws took third place in this meet. Johnson turned in an outstanding ten minute two mile with Nappie White, his running mate, coming in third. Youngblood and Butler scored second and third in a nice mile run. Hester captured third in pole vault. Abernathy took third in the shot put. Holmes and Puckett got third and fourth places in 440 which was run in 51 seconds. High jump went to R. Jones of M. C. Bishop scored third in discus. Thomas took third in the half-mile. Holmes, Puckett, Moorehead, and Flowers won the relay in a sensational fashion. The most outstanding event of the year was when L. Johnson ran the best two miles of any runner of the south at S. I. A. A. track meet at Clinton, South Carolina. He was the only representative M. C. had. He only lacked two-tenths of a second of equalling the old record of 9 minutes and 49.8 seconds. By graduation, the Choctaw team lost some valuable men in Captain Montague, Flowers, Murphree, and Hester. These men, though most valuable men, will be replaced by men in the under classes next year. Much is expected of the track team for the season of 1931. 96
