Varsity Trackmen Tie For Seventh Place
The varsity track team tied for seventh in the IC4A championships Saturday night in New York's Madison Square Garden. Stan Doten and Ted Bailey finished two-three in the 35-lb. weight throw, and captain Fred Howard took fifth in the 1000 to account for the Crimson's eight-point total.
Howard tied the University record in the 1000 with a 2:13.8 clocking in the finals. Even though he was fifth, his time will be certified. Jud Sage of Navy got off a 63 ft., 4 1/4 in. heave to defeat Doten (61-1 3/4) in the weight. Bailey threw 59 ft., 7 in.
In the 600, Don Kirkland finished out of the money in sixth place, but ran 1:13.4. Kirkland turned in a 1:13.0 in his trial heat, and Dave Nawi had a 1:14.9 in the preliminaries.
Yale took the team title with 30 points, one more than Villanova.
