Captain Elect Bob Osgood an artist at the hurdles. -An asset to any relay team and Versatility Watson, a high and broad jumper of note, holds Big Ten shot put record. OUTDOOR TRACK 1936 MICHIGAN ' S thinclads terminated the outdoor track season last year in a position second only to a veteran Indiana squad. Coach Hoyt ' s 15 man team initiated the campaign by an excellent showing in the Penn Re- lays, placing in every event in which they were entered. Two quartets Aikens, Patton, Osgood, and Birleson in the one mile relay and Stone, Fink, Stahle, and Brelsford in the four mile relay won their event. Walter Stone, participating in the 3000 meter steeplechase for the first time, came from behind to win this entry. Second places were annexed by John Town- send in the shot put and Sam Stoller in the 100 meter dash and broadjump. Next week, Michigan opened the Big Ten season with Ohio State. Led by Jesse Owens, Ohio State won 12 I / 2 -53 I /2- This defeat by the Buckeyes, the second such result in the history of track competition between the two schools, came despite the supreme efforts of Stoller and Osgood. In the next meet Michigan turned the tables and won an overwhelming victory over Illinois. Led by Osgood, who turned in a 14.3 in the high hurdles to set a National Intercollegiate record, the Maize and Blue won 79^-46^. In doing this Michigan won nine first places and registered five slams. Sam Stoller turned in two excellent performances in the next meet with Indiana. In addition Michigan won nine firsts but they were unable to overcome Don Lash and the remaining Hoosiers. The latter squeezed out a 67*/- 63^2 victory. Two weeks later Michigan ' s 30 man track team journeyed to Columbus with hopes of winning their 1 5th Big Ten Crown. They fin- ished in a tie for second place with Ohio State, trailing Indiana. Led by the stellar Don Lash, Indiana amassed a total of 47 points to Michigan ' s 39. The outstanding performer of the afternoon, Jesse Owens, won four events the broadjump, 100 yard dash, 220 yard dash, and the 220 low hurdles. Michigan won only two events Etchells at the shot and Osgood at the high hurdles. In winning the high hurdles, Bob Osgood broke Percy Beard ' s world record by traversing the distance in 14.2 seconds. 292
