cross-country teamtcapped the an-
nual,, triangular meet between
Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio yes-
terday morning by keeping their
total number of points down to 24.

l than 64.
Three Buckeye harriers, Wots-
chak, Heintz, and Hanover were
deadlocked for first place after the
five mile grind and crossed the
finish line at the University golf
course 27:03 minutes after they
started on Ferry Field.
Ten yards behind the leaders in
fourth place was Fitzgibbons, Mich-
igan sophomore, with the time of
27:07 1-2, while his teammate Aus-
tin easily took fifth by traversing
the course in 27:22.

Fitgibbons pushed the loaders

at the finish. Although this meet
was his first Conference compe-
tition, the diminutive Wolverine

Coach Farrell's squad. Austin show-
I ed good form in placing fifth in the
fast field, while Wolfe of Michigan
beat one Evans of Illinois by a few
yards for eighth position. '
Aubrey and Lowmaster, both of
Michigan staged a battle for tenth
place with Aubrey copping the hon-

Tockstein of Illinois while Kennedy
came in nineteenth.
Illini Much Weaker.
Maceever was the first Illinois
man to cross the finish, doing no
better than seventh while the next
