Monday At Austin
A&M’s undefeated cross country team looks toward
Austin Monday and its battle with Texas, SMU and Arkansas
for the Southwest Conference crown.
Th£ Aggies have swept through five meets so far this
season, downing each of their SWC opponents at least once.
Rice, TCU and Baylor do not send full teams to the confer
ence meet, but may send a 4
runner or two each.
A year ago the A&M har
riers were at this same stage
of the game, undefeated in all
pre-conference meets, but Texas
edged the Aggies by two points as
Verlon Westmoreland, who hadn’t
placed below second all year, be
came ill and finished tenth.
“We ai'e as good this year as
last,” said head track coach Frank
Andei'son, “and barring injuries or
sickness, should win.”
Team Captain Bill Cocke, senior
letterman from Lake Charles, Loui
siana, has paced A&M as he fin
ished first in every meet but one—
that against Arkansas, the only
team to push the Aggies, where he
placed second.
In the season opener A&M scored
a one-sided victory over Oklahoma
and Texas, 28-44-48, with Cocke
and Bob Boles taking the first two

Cocke ran second for the only
time against Arkansas in Fayette
ville, but the Aggies won their
closest margin, 24-31, on the Razor-
back hills. Boles took a close third
behind Cocke with Ed Blake, Carl
Wilmsen and Don Carver finishing
fifth, sixth and seventh.
“Arkansas has a good team,”
said Coach Anderson. “Our score
against them shows better than the
actual race because our boys just
beat theirs by a matter of feet.”
Against the SMU harriers the
Aggies swept the first five places
for the minimum 15 points. Cocke
and Boles again finished one-two
with Wilmsen, Blake and Carver
behind them.
Last week Cocke and Boles tied
for first in Austin as A&M downed
the Texas Longhorns, 17-42. Fi-
dell Rul, a junior letterman who
had been injured, captured fifth
followed by Wilmsen and Blake,
sixth and seventh.
“We’ve done better up to this
time than we ever have,” said coach
Anderson. “We’ve *von by larger
margins than any other year, but,
then, the SWC is weaker than ever
before, too.”
A&M will be in for a strong fight
from Arkansas and Texas, with the
home ground favoring the Long
horns. SMU is not in contention
for the title, but one or two of their
runners could take enough points
to keep the Aggies out.
“Texas will give us a good battle
and has improved tremendously.
Much more than we have,” said
BILL COCKE has led the Aggie cross country team
through an undefeated season so far. The senior distance
man is captain of the team, and has placed first in all but
one meet this year.
