Mullin's Marks Lead Trackmen To Victory Over Indians, Bruins

By Michael S. Lottman

In one of his finest performances, captain Mark Mullin led the varsity track team to victory over Dartmouth and Brown Saturday in a triangular meet at Hanover. The Crimson, boosted over the top by a surprise sweep in the javelin, had 92 1/2 points, to Dartmouth's 32 and Brown's 9 1/2.

Mullin set two Dartmouth stadium records as he covered three and one-half miles for the day. In the mile, he fought off a last-lap challenge by Indian Tom Laris and won in 4:09.6. Although the mile time set a record, it might have been a great deal faster.

As Mullin passed the half-mile post in 1:59.6, he somehow heard his time as 2:05, and figured the hell with it, more or less. If Mullin had known where he stood, he might have set a few more records.

Later, Mullin led a Crimson sweep in the 880 in the record time of 1:58,8. Harry Rich was second in 1:52,8, and Eddie Meehan third in 1:53.6. Finally Mullin ran a 9:29 two-mile to take third as Laris edged out the varsity's Ed Hamlin in a ding-dong 9:20.3 battle.

Besides turning in his best 330 clocking, Meehan ran a 4:15.0 mile behind Mullin (another best), and anchored the second-place mile relay unit with a 51.3 440-all in all, an astonishing display of versatility.

The varsity was still in danger when Pete Kelley of Dartmouth threw the javelin 186 ft., 10 1/2 in. to move into first place late in the meet. But then three Crimson performers-Hobie Armstrong (206 ft., 1 in.), Hank Hatch (199-1/2), and Tom Holcombe 192-10 1/2)--came through to finish one-two-three and ice the meet.

Rick DeLone was a double winner for the Varsity, capturing the shot at 53 ft., 8 1/4 in, and the discus at 151 ft., 10 1/2 in. Sid Marland, with 22 ft., 2 1/2 in, in the broad jump; Ted Bailey, with 192 ft., 2 in. In the hammer; and Marty Beckwith, with 6 ft., 2 in. in the high jump (tie) also contributed firsts.

Gerry Ashworth of Dartmouth won the 100 in 9.7 and the 220 in 21.5.
