Simmons leaves
track leacy

Daily sports writer
Women's track and cross-country
coach Ken "Red" Simmons, a
prominent figure in Michigan women's
track since the early 60's, has retired
from the helm of Michigan's program,
but his legacy will remain intact with
the appointment of Francea Kraker
Goodridge to replace him.
Goodridge, a member of the U.S.
Olympic team in 1968 and 1972, was one
of the first athletes Simmons coached
when he became actively involved with
women's track in the Ann Arbor area in
standing eompetitive record during her
career, winning numerous national
championships and setting a world
record for the 600-yard run. She shared
the spotlight with Francie Larrieu and
Doris Brown Heritage as one of the
United States' premier middle distance
runners during the late 60's and early
A coach of proven abilities,
Goodridge most recently coached the
East Lansing High School girl's track

team (which won the Capitol Area Con-
ference meet and the regional cham-
pionship) and has been serving as the
assistant cross-country coach at
Michigan State.
Many of the women's track and cross-
country programs in the state today
owe much to Simmons, whose
pioneering efforts spanned two
decades. Simmons' Michigammes club
produced many nationally ranked
competitors, and his efforts on behalf of
the sport had much to do with the adop-
tion of women's track asa varsity sport
at many Michigan high schools and at
the University.
It seems fitting that Simmons' last
'season as a U-M coach should see
discus thrower Penny Neer become
Michigan's first woman track All-
American, as she finished fifth at the
AIAW national meet. Neer and two
other Michigan athletes coached by
Simmons - 10,000 meter runner
Melanie Weaver and javelin thrower
Debbie Williams - will be par-
ticipating in the Track Athletics
Congress (TAC) championship meet at
Sacramento, California this weekend.
