Southwestern Life Wrapup Of Weekend Sports Disappointment, Rejuvenation The past weekend was one of disappointment and rejuvenation for Texas Agg-ie athletes. Disappointments happened at: Kyle Field, where the Aggie baseballers needed to win a two- game series with Baylor to stay in title contention but had to set tle for a split and virtual elimi nation from the Southwest Con ference race. Austin, where three Aggies had a chance to take SWC titles in golf and tennis, but had to strug gle to gain seconds. Rejuvenation happened at: Des Moines, Iowa, site of the Drake Relays, where Randy Mat- son regained his old form and won both the discus and shot put with excellent performances. It will now take a miracle for the Aggies, once the No. 2 team in the nation, to win the SWC baseball title and a spot in the NCAA Tournament. The Aggies, now 7-5 in confer ence play, will have to wait until the outcome of the Texas Chris- tian-University of Texas series before they will know if the SWC title is out of reach or if they still have a chance. TCU and Texas will play this week and if Texas beats TCU in the two-game series then the Ag gies are still alive, but . . . In the Baylor series, the Bears rallied for three runs in the ninth inning of the first game to beat the Cadets, 12-9, but A&M came back in the second game, 7-5. A&M took a three-run lead in the initial inning of the first game only to see Baylor explode for five runs in the third to take the lead. The Aggies rallied for three and two runs in the fifth and sixth, respectively, before Baylor tied the count in the sev enth and scored the winning runs in the last frame. Alan Koonce paced the Aggie attack in the first game with two home runs, one a tape measure job in the third. In the second game, Billy John son got revenge for the treatment the Bears gave him during the first game. Johnson, who started the first game, left the game after the Bears had bombed him for the five runs in the third. But in the second game, Johnson re lieved starter Steve Hillhouse and put out the Bears to preserve the victory. Lou Camilli’s single, Lance Cobb’s double, Rick Schwartz’s double and Joe Staples’ single gave the Aggies three runs in the sixth inning of the second game and the margin of victory. For the Aggie baseballers, it will take help from their friends at the forty acres or the SWC title is out of the question. One member of the forty-acre squad was not too friendly this past weekend. Mason Adkins fired closing rounds of 73 and 74 to beat Aggie Lee McDowell in the SWC golf championship. Mc Dowell finished one stroke be hind Adkins who fired a 295. McDowell said after the final round he would file a written protest to the conference because of what he considered an unfair drop given Adkins on the next to the last hole, which Adkins bird ied to win the match. While McDowell was fighting a bad round and meet officials, Aggie netters Richard Barker and Luis Rojas couldn’t solve the combination of Rice’s Butch See- wagen and Chip Travis. Rojas and Barker had won the title in 1964 and were trying to get their second trophy in three years, but the Rice duo had other ideas. Barker and Rojas, both also playing in the single tournament, were eliminated before the finals. While Aggie athletes were try ing to stay alive in Texas, Randy Matson was reborn in the middle of the nation’s corn belt. The Aggie giant, who has been fight ing knee injuries, lack of weight and fatigue all season, put togeth er one of the nation’s top “weight doubles” of the year. Matson flung the discus 185- SVz and putted the shot 65-3% to break his own record. A&M also had a fourth in the 440 relay, but were disqualified for running out of the lane. The team members were Gilbert Smith, Billy Schmidt, Arnie Britt and Gary Abernathy.
