He could do better, but he never had enough hurdles hurdles to practice with. His school didn’t even have a track. When he competed, competed, the extra hurdles ruined his times. So Perkiomen Valley coach Conrad Wiser employed an ash can and a wagon to replace the missing hurdles. On Saturday, Calkins finished second in the Class AA district 330s, clocking 41.8. And his teammates placed in 12 of 17 other events and rang up 88 points to win the District One championship championship at North Penn. Lower Moreland was second with 64, defending champion Upper Perkiomen and Octorara finished tied for third with 55 points, and St. Pius X, another school without a track, finished fifth and got four firsts. Minter turned on to firsts in the 100 (10.3) and 220 (23.1) and helped out on a second place 880 relay team. He and Dave McSurdy, who won the 440 in 51.4, were the only senior winners for the Vikes. McSurdy’s effort broke the school record he almost every time out. He trimmed one-tenth of a second of his most recent record. Joel Derstine borrowed Alan Cartacki’s shoes and broke the school record for a second in the high jump, clearing 6-4 Vz. Derstine held the old record of 6-1. Dominic Martorana threw the discus 136-0 for a second and Bill Neill heaved the javelin 188-7 for another second. “Neill has the best chance in the states,” said Wiser. “He’s been tired lately, but once he’s rested he’s liable to catch one. He’s thrown over 215 feet in practice.” Mike Rogers of St. Pius X took two firsts, hurling the discus 142-6 and the shot 50-6 V4. “Rogers was disappointed disappointed with the distances,” said Pius coach Ed Dobry. “He’s a competitor, he just throws it better than the other guy, no matter what the distance is. He might bring home a state title.” Rick Fontaine won the 330 hurldes, clocking 40.1 to break his own school record of 40.3. He also anchored a winning 880 relay team, which also broke a school record while clocking 1:33.09. Mike Lack, Bill Gibbs, Joe Kushnerick, and Fontaine had become a unit only recently. Upper Perkiomen’s Alan Treffinger won the mile (4:26.4) and the two mile (10:11.2), teammate Jay Yarnall got a second in the shot and the Indians’ Indians’ Mike Duka nabbed second in the 440. Upper Perk won the two mile relay in 8:15.6. Treffinger’s mile time broke the record (4:28.0) set by Owen J. Roberts’ Bruce Skiles in 1971. For Pottsgrove, Steve Ferenz got a third in the mile, Jeff Starr finished fourth in the discus, and Marvin Goggins notched a fifth in the high jump. • • • Pottstown’s Ron Gumbarge threw a personal best 142-9 for a third place finish in the discus in Class AAA competition at North Penn. Trojan Dave Reidenouer got a fifth in the discus with a 177-4 toss, which beat his own school record, 177-0.
