School picture. The tie does NOT go with that shirt!
Wayland Cross-Country team freshman year.
That's the entire track team freshman year.
My first Cross-Country race freshman year ahead of a local boy who went to another college.
Sophomore year cross-country with new coach. When I coached track ten years later I followed my distance runners on a scooter just like he did. We went to nationals and I was in the top 300 out of over a thousand runners.
Me running at Eastern New Mexico meet. The course was half-way between Clovis and Portales. Before the race they picked up all the rattle snakes they could find, then fired the gun.
Cross-country team junior year. My best racing condition. Finished 150 out or over a thousand runners at nationals.
Plainview paper ran some nice articles and pictures about our team. Domingo Martinez was a good runner.
Texas Tech relays. I was final leg of 4X 1 mile relay. We came in third. The award was a Texas Tech sport bag. At least it was useful after I took off the TT decals.
After a good cross-country season I was looking forward to an even better track season. I twisted my knee in practice before national indoor meet and my running days were over.
These are great pictures. Thanks for posting!
Glad you liked them, Berthold.
