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.
