'37 TRACK SEASON FAIR
Peru closed the 1937 track season with few regrets, and ranked third in the N. I. A. A.
Wayne Riggs of Shubert was the man of the season, scoring thirteen points in the N. I. A. A. tournament. He trailed Bradford of Wayne for individual honors. Other lettermen were: Hall, Omaha; Lytton, Fairbury; Hoban, Kansas; Greathouse, Ord; Bailey, DcWitt; McCormick, Syracuse; Stark, Bedford, Iowa; Shafer, Auburn; Mosely, Ong; and Turner, DuBois.
The first meet of the year was a dual meet with Maryville, Missouri, and Peru failed to match the flying heels of the brawny men from the south. The final score was 94 to 40. The meet was featured by a dual botween Neil of Maryville (national hop-step-jump contender) and Riggs of Peru. They both stretched out over 24 feet in the broad jump.
The next meet was with Tarkio, Missouri, and the Cats again lost. The contest was close, the score being 73-62. Riggs, Platenburg, Stark, and Ludington all won firsts. However, team power gathered too many points for Tarkio.
The Bobcat delegation at the Hastings Invitational found Riggs the only man to place. He gathered a second in the 100-yard dash.
