now Federal Judge Urbina (ret'd.)
Lou Scott and Gerry Lindgren break away from the field in the three mile. With two laps left, Scott holds a five yard lead. Lindgren, who won the three and six in last week's NCAA meet, has been having stomach problems for some time but he closes at the gun and runs 58.8 on the final go round to win in 13:10.6. Scott is second in 13:12.4 and Van Nelson third in 13:16.8.
