Co-leaders A&M, Arkansas prepare for battle
By TONY GALLUCCI
It seems as if the Aggies will never
find rest; but then champions never
do. Every game looms larger as the
Aggies prepare their next assault on
the way to the lonely top.
This time, it is more than just a hill
the Aggies must conquer. It is THE
hill and it is called Arkansas. With
both teams sporting a spotless 5-0
SWC record the matchup tonight in
G. Rollie White Coliseum has right

Arkansas comes into the game
with a 12-3 record overall and the
Aggies enter at 13-5. A&M, the pre

“They either play a man or 2-3

“They’ll usually play man until they

hurdles, and Kevin Stevenson came
in fifth in the 6-man final.
Kim Scott took second in the shot-
put with a career best throw of 62
feet, Vz inch.
Thomas said the team did well
without the services of four of its top
performers, Curtis Dickey, Jimmy
Howard, Leslie Kerr and Randy
Hall, who were in a meet in Madison
Square Garden in New York.
Thomas also liked footballer John
ny Hector’s performance in the long

he scratched on two tremendous
jumps that would have been around
25 feet,” Thomas said.
