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

Cross-Country Team The cross-country season started off with more and better material than any other former Choctaw squad can boast of having. Under the. efficient leadership of Captain Nappie White, otherwise known as “Guts,” the men were easily whipped into shape. Nappie, besides being one of the fastest harriers, was truly the outstanding man for captain, as he had the respect of his running mates and was naturally a leader. Nappie was such a good leader that Coach Blaine left most of the training of the team in his hands. Besides White, in Johnson, the South’s fastest two-miler, we had a dependable man. He was one you could depend on for points and an excellent race. Another all- varsity man, a regular from last season’s team, was Puckett, who has shown as much fight and ability as any Choctaw harrier in history. Holmes and Thomas are middle distance men who proved very emphatically that they, too, could run distance with splendid form and time. George Gill has made one of the best cross-country men in the shortest period of any man we can boast of having. Owen Gregory came through for his best performance this season. The new material for this season was unusually good. The team discovered that Dunaway and Montague were very valuable men. We had several intramural meets during the season, but on account of financial de- pression, and a desire of the team to have an additional Spring track meet, we closed the season without an intercollegiate meet. We are all assured our efforts were not in vain this season, because cross-country is one of the biggest assets in training for Spring track. 98
