Head track coach Don Hunt described it aptly when he said near the season ' s end, " We ' ve been trying to put it together all season, and I believe we now have. " The culmination of the rise of Mississippi State track fortunes came in the 1974 Southeastern Conference track meet in Gainsville, Fla. Highlighting the Bulldogs ' fifth-place finish (55 points) behind NCAA-Champion-to-be-Tennessee (207 points) was a conference record triple jump by sophomore Seigha Porbeni. The native of Warri, Nigeria, soared 51-feet, 4- inches to nab first place in record style. There were other promising signs in the meet, however. Junior sprinter Tim Bates grabbed third in the 220-yard dash with a 21.0 seconds clocking and placed fifth in the 100 with a 9.6 time. The Bulldogs ' 440 and mile relay out- fits also managed third spot in each event. In fact, two weeks prior to the SEC finals, the State 440- yard relay quarter, composed of Vernon White, Tim Bates, Ruks, Bazunu, and Steve Jones zipped to the fourth fastest timing in SEC history with a 40.2 seconds run in a triangu- lar meet in Baton Rouge, La. Miler Chuck Burdine a sophomore from Biloxi, and sophomore Leslie Whitehead also peaked in their special- ties near the final stages of 1974. Burdine broke the mile run record of 4:06.2 in the final meet of the year. White- head, a 5-10 high jumper from Pascagoula, reached the 7-0 mark in both the last regular-season meet and in the Con- ference meet. Other new team marks were established by Keith Thornhill (52.3 in the 440 intermediate hurdles) and David Johnson (1:515.4 in the 880 run). Bates tied Frank Dowsing ' s school standard of 21.0 in the 220 during the spring, 1974, outing. With every member of the 1974 squad returning, pro- spects that the 1975 squad will " put it all together " seem brighter than ever. 212
