Ole frosh win telegraphic
Author: Paul Feroe
With a freshman cross country team capable of beating any varsity squad in the Midwest Conference, combined with six returning lettermen, St. Olaf coach Ory Bies has reason to be optimistic, "I think we'll be pretty strong."
The freshman team, which was undefeated this season, lived up to its expectations in the recent freshman telegraphic as they captured five out of the top seven places. In the telegraphic, each school runs three miles against the clock and then submits their times for comparison with other teams.
Mike Martin, who consistently finished among the leaders when running along in varsity meets, came in first with a time of 15:08. A Monmouth runner was second followed by Stuart Braem, Gary Olmstead, and Wallace Milbrandt of St. Olaf. In taking 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th positions, the Oles compiled 20 points to finish ahead of Monmouth 48, Carleton 72, Grinnell 104, and Knox 120. Cornell, Coe, and Ripon had five entries between them and Lawrence and Beloit did not enter.
Dave Peck finished first for the Carls in ninth place. Other Carleton runners were Dick Cureton, 16, Dave Pengelly, 18, and Dan Boubjerg, 19.
