Rock Island High School produced one of the finest sophomore track teams in recent years. Coach lundeen ' s sophomore squad compiled an impres¬ sive 6-1 dual meet record. Excellent depth and several star performers enabled the Pebbles to snare the soph¬ omore Quad-City championship. The Lit¬ tle Rocks also were able to capture the Mississippi Valley championship, which is possibly some of the toughest compe¬ tition found in the Midwest. Outstanding sophomore trackmen, who on several occasions helped the Varsity squad, were Kevin O ' Hern and Larry Begyn, distance runners; Frank Riley, who backed up Don Allbritton and Mike Chaney in the pole vault; Marc Gilliam, sprinter; and Ken John¬ son, high and low hurdles. These ath¬ letes and many other Sophs will help the varsity squad in the upcoming sea¬ son. 242

Rocks Set Three Standards in Spring The Rock Island Varsity Track team of 1967-68 strove to improve on the " 66-67 season when they began their season with indoor track in March. The track team of 1966-67 completed a highly successful season in May when thy finished 16th in state competition. Last year, 150 boys turned out to try their hand at track and field events. Of the 150, seventy boys remained on the squad for the rest of the season. The squad, helped by the early practice, sported an excellent 9-1 dual record with the only loss coming at the hands of the mighty Moline Maroons. The Maroons were powered by their fantastic sprinters, Steve Williams and Curt Anders, as they edged out the Rocks by only 18 points, 110-92. In Indoor dual competition Rocky cindermen handily trounced three of their Quad-City counterparts. The Rocks waltzed by Davenport West by a score of 90-31, while they downed Davenport Central by a count of 77- 41. Their third victory in indoor competition came against the East Moline Panthers by a 79-33 score. In outdoor track meets tKe Rocks compiled a 6-1 record registering two massive victories. The first came against Alleman by a score of 159-40; while the second came against Davenport West when the Rocks scored an Impressive win by a 152-50 margin. Their other victories, however, were much harder to come by as some went down to the final event. The Rocks battled to a second place finish in the Mississippi Valley Conference Indoor meet, a third in Dis¬ trict competition, and a 16th place finish at state. The Rocks ended their spring season with the Mississippi Val¬ ley Outdoor meet in which they finished third. Three new school records were set during the sea¬ son. Rich Hansen smashed the 880 yd. run record by 3 seconds in a time of 1:53.9. Bob Sager raised the shot record by some 5 inches. The third was set by Don All¬ britton as he pole vaulted 14 " i i " to best his own record. 241
