Track Team Captures " Big Six " Under the head guidance of Coach Duane Bonsall, the 1972 Cross Country team tied for a second spot in the Western Big 6 and captured a second place in District. Although starting the season by losing badly against its first two opponents, the Rocks finally put together some points and matched a quick Davenport West crew, thirty all. Gaining momentum from their hard fought West meet, the Rocks went on to down its next chal¬ lenges to post a final 2-2-1 rec¬ ord. At the closing of the season the Rock Island squad was rated number four in the Quad City Conference. During the ' 72 campaign the Rocks traveled to the Ottawa Invitational where they placed tenth. Ace runner, Steve Wolfe paced the Islanders to a secod spot at District with his first place victory. Following District, Wolfe continued to the Sectional where he placed fifth and on to State where he finished with a 117 position. Coach Bonsall ' s fall track squad turned up a disappointing season winning only one meet. However, the Rocks placed a mile team in the number four spot in the Metro Conference. This spring the Rocks expect of their returning and fresh track and field men a renewal of Rocky ' s past track performances. 1. With powerful strides Dan Clash drives from the starting blocks. 2.
