Michigain Cross-Country Aggregation
Ends Race In Tie With Indiana
For Eighth Position
Led by their individual star, Capt.
John Zola, Coach Tom Jones' veteran
and well balanced Wisconsin harrier
team repeated its victory of last sea-
son by capturing the Conference cross
country title for the third consecutive
time with 31 points yesterday morning
over the new Wolverine course.
The Badger victory was won by a
m(uch narrower margin than that at-
tained at Minneapolis a year ago, how-
ever, as Coach Harry Gill's veteran
Illinois aggregation nearly made good
in their attempt to break the Cardi-

ries, pressing the winners all the way

second place with 57 points, just six
behind the Jones-coached team.
