into the program should show results too, as early as next year.
Practically all the 'top swimmers the Longhorns have are
either freshmen or sophomores. Dick Worrell is probably the
best of these second year men. Worrell swims in all three of
the longest freestyle races and may be able to give the Blue boys
some competition in a couple of them. His best time in the
200 yarder, 1:45.06, is very close to what Michigan's Mark
Anderson has been swimming. In the 500 yard event Worrell's
best is only four seconds behind Tom Szuba's record breaking
pace of 4:42.28.
Another sophomore, Terry Strawn, swims in the shorter
freestyle events. Strawn has recorded a 22.1 in the 50 and has
gone 100 yards in almost 50 seconds. Other competent per-
formers on the team are sophomores Will Reeves, Terry Strawn,
Bob Rachner, and Bill Burns, and freshmen Bobbie Londrigan
and Jamie Baird.
It will take a year or so until most of these performers can
threaten the efforts of the tankers. As Texas has only one
able diver, Donnie Vick, who should do no better than third,
the meet will be little more than a warm-up for tomorrow's
clash with SMU.;
