As it was, the victorv by Web Mayne of
Illinois over Kevin S-nich in the Number

otherwise perfect Wolterine record. Michigan
picked up 158 points en route to the title.

Nobody likes to come in second place. Just
ask the San Francisco Giants of the Middle
Sixties how wonderftl it was to finish second
best in the National League every year. But
don't ask the Michigan Track team-they
think it's great.
The Wolverine cindermen, picked to finish
somewhere in the middle of the pack in the
Big Ten Track Meet last weekend at Ferry
Field, delighted the home fans by edging out
MSU and Wisconsin for second.
INDIANA, OF COURSE, ran away with first
place honors with 150 points, 76 more than
Michigan. The Hoosiers had individual stars
like six-miler Pat Mandera and high jumper
Dennis Adama, but it was the endless pro-
cession of seconds, thirds, and fourths in all
but three events that enabled Indiana to amass
their awesome score.
But everybody knew Indiana had the title
in the bag once they arrived safely from
Bloomington so the real excitement was
Michigan's performance, especially freshman
Greg Meyer's picture book finish in the 3000-
The steeplechase is always an exciting race
because of the watertraps and 35 hurdles that
seem to get higher and higher as the nearly
two mile race drones on. Minnesota's Steve
Holl, leading the pack for most of the way,
tripped on the last hurdle and Meyer revved
up the afterburners to pass Holl and three
other competitors to win the race in 8:57.1,
a Ferry Field record.
WITH THE CROWD wailing with delight,
retiring Coach Dixon Farmer threatened Ivory
Crockett's record in the 100, dashing over to
greet his champion, who was grinning from
ear to ear.
three-mile run. Unfortunately, Keith's lead did not last long,,
as he finished seventh in that event. But he and his team-
mates did well enough for a second place finish, a suitable
parting gift for their soon-to-be ex-coach, Dixon Farmer.
