I Now own 4-2 SWC mark Page 6 THE BATTALION TUESDAY, MARCH 11, 1975 Ags collect 42 hits in sweeping SMU By DAVID WALKER Staff Sports Writer The Texas Aggie baseball team entered last weekend’s series with SMU needing a sweep of their three game set. That is exactly what it got.' Behind a 42 hit, 28 run attack the Aggies upped their season record to 10-2, with a Southwest Conference mark of 4-2. The Aggies began the weekend with a 6-2 win over the Ponies. A pleasant surprise for the Aggies was the pitching performance of Hous ton Sophomore Jeff Scheumack who came in the game in relief of David Lockett with the bases loaded and only one out. He got the next two batters on a popup and a force out to get out of the inning and then went on to give the Mustangs only five hits in seven innings for his first vic tory of the year. The Aggies swept Saturday’s double header by scores of 6-2, and 16-8. Al Thurmond was the big stick man for the Aggies as he had seven hits in eight trips to the plate. The Aggies won the first game as James “Hoot” Gibson won his sec ond game against no losses. The Aggies went ahead to stay in the fifth inning when Jim Bratsen and Mike Schraeder got on with back to back singles. With two outs Thurmond drove in the first run with a sharp single to left. Rick Crabtree followed with a two run single to give the Aggies a 4-2 lead. They added two insurance runs in the sixth when Bratsen drove in Mike Frazier and Tommy Hawth- JLi orne to give the Aggies their 6-2 first game win. The second game was all for grins as the Aggies bombed the SMU pitching staff for 21 hits and 16 runs on their way to a 16-8 route. David Lockett was the winning pitcher for the Aggies to stretch his season re cord to 3-0. Al Thurmond was once again the big gun for the Aggies as he went four for four.

Point stealing from one school and giving a break to the under-dog, the swim team promoted Tech into fourth place and managed sixth. “You can bet we won’t be taking sixth next year,’ said Coach Dennis Fosdick.

Others breaking school records were Steve Moore with a 1:58.76 in the 200 individual medley and the 400 yd. medley relay team, Don Reeser, Leland, Vanderhurst, and Schueckler, with a 3:33.1. 200 yd. freestyle 100 yd. butterfly 100 yd. backstroke 200 yd.

He set new personal and school records by swimming a 1:00:11 in the 100 yard breast and a 2:12.42 in the 200 yard breast. “The team was exhausted, ” Fos dick said. “They all swam the best times of their lives and you can’t ask more than that from a guy. By the time it got to the relays, some of the guys were swimming their twelth and thirteenth event of the meet. ” “The team was complimented for the show of spirit and determination by the other SWC coaches,” said Fosdick. “Next year we ll have more than that to show.” 400 yd. medley relay Bill Cunningham Mike Vanderhurst Don Reeser Scott Jones Dave Donnell Steve Moore Greg Meek Larry Schueckler, Bobby Leland Don Reeser Bill Cunningham Larry Schueckler Bob Leland Scot Jones Bill Cunningham Don Reeser Bobby Leland Mike Vanderhurst Larry Schueckler 8th 3rd 4th 10th 12th 4th 12th By TONY GALLUCCI Staff Sports Writer The Aggie netters came out even for the weekend taking a narrow 5-4 win over LSU on Friday and losing by the same margin to Rice in the Southwest Conference opener on Monday.

T making; Despi nance, a / RES “We ll take Bobby to NCAA and AAU nationals this year. He’s a year away from being a point getter, but hopefully this will get the newness’ of national competition out of the way,” Fosdick said. Mike Vanderhurst, junior, made his mark in the 100 yard fly by swimming a 52.36. Although not a national qualifying time, Fosdick expects Vanderhurst to hit the mark at a meet to be held March 23 in Austin. This time brought a third to Vanderhurst for conference com petition. Both free relay teams made na tionals times. Swimming the 400 were Larry Schueckler, Leland, Greg Meek, and Bill Cunningham. Several “awfully good” recruits are talking to Fosdick. He says these will fill out the long and middle dis tance free slots and help in the fly department. “There are a couple backstrokers who are turning in 55-second times and one with a 54 without taper,’’ Fosdick said. With the added depth of recruits and returns from the ineligible lists, the Ags should have the depth to “take all those other point-getting places next year,” Fosdick said.
