Winningham Tosses 232-8
Johnson Wins Two For Hood
Scoring points in every event except two Brooke Army Medical
Center athletes warmed up for next week's Fourth Army champion
ships by walking off with Fort Hood Invitational Track and Field
Meet last Saturday.
The Comets were as relentless as the howling southerly winds
that swept across Highway 190 and helped account for the wealth of
fast times in the short races.
The Brookemen scored 94 points failing to get on the scoreboard
only in the hop-step-and-jump and the hammer throw. Fort Sill fol
lowed with 63% and host Fort Hood was third with 42%.
Larry Wilson a pint-sized sprinter with a quart-sized stride
flew to victories in the 100 and 220 dashes and ran anchor legs
on Brooke's winning 440 and 880 relays to earn the meet's out
standing athlete award.
The ex-Morgan State flash clocked 9.5 in the century and 21.1
not quite as fast as his

Fort Hood's rollicking Tankers
entertain Kelly Air Force Base
this weekend in a couple of base
ball games at Red Lindsey Field.
The Tankers winners of five
straight have been hitting like a
bunch of Ruths and pitching like
The leg muscle injury to ace
hurler Ken Travis which had
Coach Rock Snyder worried has
healed faster than expected. Trav
is threw batting practice on the
road trip to Houston and was
slated to start last night against
the Waco Air Force Jets.
Results of last night's game
were unavailable at press time.
So far this year the Tankers
are 3-0 against Air Force
teams having previously de
feated Carswell AFB twice and
the Jets once.
The two games against Kelly
are slated for tomorrow evening
at 8 p.m. and Sunday afternoon
at 2 p.m.
More Air Force opposition is on
tap next week when the Tankers
hike down to Bergstrom in Austin
for a twosome on Wednesday and

Glenn Winningham Brooke's explosive javelinist didn't improve
on his nation-leading throw of 246-10 but got off a prodigious toss
of 232-8 and outdistanced Mike Morando of Webb second at 213-1.
The Comets received a 10 point offering from Rich Sullivan who
used his bulk for firsts in the shot put and discus and his speed for
a leg on the 440 relay.
Sullivan was the fastest man on the Brooke football team
last year and he teamed up with Wilson Dave Hammie and Sam
Murphy to clock a speedy 42.7 in the quarter-mile relay.
Fort Hood's Ted Johnson a personnel clerk from Hq. Co. 6th
Infantry left all opposition in the dust and won the mile and three
mile runs in easy lopes of 4:44.9 and 16:07.
Johnson was never headed in either race and his only adversary
was the southerly wind* he had to buck for half a lap. He's a good
bet to repeat at Fort Sill next Tuesday in the Fourth Army meet.
Two other Tankers emerged with blue ribbons. Hubert White
from Btry. A 6th Artillery running in his first stepplechase race
took the water jump and hurdles like a veteran stayed dry-spiked
and sprinted home to win in 12:02.6.
Ronald Dexter from Co. C 6th Infantry twirled the hammer
121-1 to lead Fort Hood's best showing in any one event. Sid
Vanderhorst finished third and Don Rathert fourth.
Dyess' Toby Roberts who runs over the high hurdles as if they*
aren't there captured the 120 sticks in excellent 14.5 time took a
second in the 220 at 21.3 and stretched out for a third in the 440
Fort Sill Larry McCarty proved himself even more versatile
winning the quarter-mile in 49.5 the hop-step-and jump with a 43-8*
leap a fourth-place 20-10 mark in the broad jump and a blazing
anchor lap on the victorious Sill mile relay team.
