Lubbock High school will be try-
ing for a district win this year in
track with five returning lettermen
and a full string of likely prospects.
Daily practice sessions are held
each afternoon at Chapman field.
The boys jog a couple of laps to
loosen up their leg and stomach
muscles and then get down to bus-
iness with 50- and 100- yard sprints,
broad jumps, high-jumps, discus
throwing, shot-put, 440-yard relay,

The recent Golden Gloves tourna-
ment, held at the Tech gym last
week, provided plenty of thrills.
Wayne Raney, a Lubbock High
school lad, was defeated in his sec-
ond fight but proved to be a major
threat. Joey Music, another light
heavyweight from Lubbock, won
all his fights, making him eligible
to compete at the Fort Worth
tournament next week. Mark Dick-
inson, also from L.PLS., though de-
feated in his second fight, proved
his ability as a boxer.
Mike Sellen, local track pros-
pect, has accepted a job of help-
ing the stranglers across the
finish line. Mike thinks that
since he is always last he might
as well help the others.
