Based on this season's 16 meet winning streak, Arizona's Ed Caruthers is the overwhelming favorite in the high jump. He clears 7-1, but loses on misses to Ed Brown of Idaho who is experiencing his first season in track and field. Brown is a basketball player who prepped in New York.
Coach Doug McFarland suggested he fill his spring with track after seeing him jump 6-6 on his first day out. Dick Fosbury from Oregon State “thrilled the crowd with his unique backwards roll style” in placing fifth at 6-10.
Ed Brown and Coach McFarland?
Except for fifth place finisher Art Patera of BYU, the hammer throw could have been held in a time zone two hours earlier, as the other nine placers are all from New Jersey, New York or New England. Rhode Island's Bob Narcessian takes the gold at 197-0.
If you think genetics and upbringing are not important in passing down some tradition and abilities, see below. Bob Narcessian's father was also a very good hammer thrower.
Bits and pieces: If you want to see both next year's national collegiate championships, the NCAA and the college division meet, you won't have far to go. The NCAA meet will be in Berkeley while the college meet will be half an hour south at Hayward State (currently the laboriously designated California State University, East Bay). Just to make certain the Bay Area is the center of US track, next year's AAU indoor nationals will be held in Oakland.
.....Evidence of how we have evolved socially comes from Dick Drake's "On Your Marks" column. “Of the 50 finalists in the 100, 220, 440, high hurdles, long jump and high jump, 43 were Negro – once again indicating the strength of this race in these events.”......As long as he is on the race subject, Drake points out that Sam Perry, who equalled the WR in the 60 while a Fordam student in 1965 has become the youngest member ever of the Passiac, NJ city council at 22, also the first Negro. note: a quick check of Wikipedia reveals that Sam graduated from Columbia Law School and had a lengthy career as an attorney, dying in 2000.)Sam Perry's Obituary from the IAAF website.
....Jim Grelle is certain he will be going to Mexico City Olympics next year. He is signed up as a tour leader......Oh, remember that apparent 39.0 world record run by USC in the San Diego Invitational? Well, it hasn't been submitted as a WR because it was run against a “makeshift team”. Apparently competing against a bunch of bozos can make you faster. This is made academic by Trojan's 38.6 at the NCAA, but still.
