YOU 3UME THIS WiLL WORK ? th | All stud for the these v\ the act dures f in4p.n; REQU \ GAME r GAME CDC pc 3 cue; dp / 9 BO Women’s track team competing in Denton By JON HEIDKE Sports Staff The Texas A&M Univ ersity women’s track team travels to De nton to participate in the Texas Woman’s Univerisity Invitational track meet today and Saturday. The meet, one of the strongest of the young outdoor season, will fea ture the University of Texas-El Paso, the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. The Universi ty ofTexas and TWU, both ranked in the top 10, will also be there. Head coach Bill Nix’s Aggie Ladies will also take a shot at the team title. The Aggies are particular ly strong in the field events and long distances. Shot putter Iris Tipton and high jumper Jan Chesbro were both first place winners at last week’s Texas Southern Univerisity Relays, and they will anchor the field events. The Aggies are likely to score points in the long distances, espe cially in the 1,500-, 3,000- and 5,000- meters. Sandra Brown set a new school record in the 3,000-meter race with a time of 9:58.3 even though it was the first time she had ever run that distance in competi tion. Lorie Scott and Barbara Col- linsworth are both entered in the 3,000 and 5,000 meters, and both should be high finishers. Nix was pleased with last week’s performances in the TSU Relays, but did say work was needed with the sprinters. “With more work the times will start coming down,’’ said Nix, “and we will be more competitive in that area.” Ellen and Evelyn Smith, along with Paula Lake, are the Aggies’ top sprinters. The Aggies will take 20 women to Denton this weekend, but will be without the services of Early Doug las. Douglas, who throws the shot put and discus, injured her throwing arm three weeks ago. She will sit out this week in the hopes of being at full strengh at next week’s Texas Relays in Austin. Nix said that the loss of Douglas would probably cost the Aggies about five points in the race for the team championship.

The upstart Aggies, considered by Chandler to be in a rebuilding sea son, will enter the series with a 22-4 overall record, which includes a 9-3 mark in Southwest Conference play. This puts them a game and a half behind the 9-0 University of Texas Longhorns. The Aggies made their first conference sweep of the season last weekend against the Texas Tech Red Raiders. While the Aggies have been a pleasant surprise, the Razorbacks have started slowly, and are still looking for a conference series sweep. Arkansas, which played in the College World Series finals last year, is 24-11 overall and 5-4 in SWC play, good for third place. The Razorbacks are still looking for a third starting pitcher to join Steve Krueger and Scott Tabor in their rotation. Krueger, a senior left hander, has a 6-0 record so far, and Tabor is 4-2. Krueger was last season’s new comer of the year in the SWC. Arkansas is not sure who will start in the third game. Chandler said he thinks Arkansas, which was on a 12-game winning streak until defeated by the Univer sity of Houston Saturday, is one of the teams to beat in the SWC. He said he plans to start three freshmen pitchers this weekend, with either David Flores or Jack Mis- ka in the opener, followed by Robert Slavens and Rick Luecken. Both Slavens and Luecken have been no thing less than sensational so far, each sporting 6-0 season records.

The win was the 599th career vic tory for coach Enos Semore, who was denied a chance to gain No. 600 the same day because rain forced cancel lation of the second game. Sooner hatting ace Frank Merez hit his sixth home run of the season to lead off the fifth inning and open the Sooner scoring. Merez doubled in the sixth and scored on a single by Bryan Stafford.
