Lancaster feels that it will be a good way to get info
out to many of her teammates and women athletes as well.
They need to know for example that they are eligible for
O club rings. In their early days they didn't get them.
of you may be able to upgrade the old records for English
distances. A lot of that is missing for the indoor and outdoor
all time lists. Mike Hewitt wants to believe that he is
still school record holder of the seldom run 330 yard intermediate
hurdles. It was a transitional distance when the NCAA or
the Big 8 decided to drop the 220 yard hurdles and go toward
the 440 yard hurdles. We'll humor Mike if we can.
, Sooners, this is the start of the short awaited website
which has been consecrated (Sooner Tracks). If you are wondering
how this got started, it began the first weekend of May,
2004 while a number of us were sitting and freezing our
tails at Jacobs Field during the Big 12 Meet. Many of us
hadn't seen or heard from each other in 40 years and even
met some older alums who were legends before we got to Norman.
I met Dee Givens for the first time and Hial Genert who
had known a mutual friend when he was playing baseball in
the army at Ft. Quachuca. So a lot of these little stories
started coming out and Walt Mizell, Mike Hewitt, and Carl
Pellegrini thought a website where we could keep the past
alive might be a good idea. Somehow the task was dumped
on me and here we are.
I hope that you will give us some biographic material. Don't
be shy about your accomplishments. We've had a lot of years
of experience and I'm sure our lives will be an inspiration
to many of the younger athletes. these kids running now
for OU could just about be our grandchildren.
hoping too that a lot of you will send reminiscences of
your days at OU. We know there are many, many Jake stories
as well as Bill and J.D.
Keith is another old friend of the guys up to about 1970
and a lot could be written about him.
this is a start , but the future of the site is up to
you . What you want to do with it, what you think it should
be. I'll try to respond to please as many of you and as
many age groups as possible.
Dick Neff, Tonni Coane, Tim Leonard, Walt Mizell, and
Tim Resinger start the 880 OU-KU Dual.
Finish line - Womens 4x100 at Big 12 meet.
