Cats 2nd, Spartans 4th At Longmont Relay Meet LONGMONT - Northern Conference track fans got a good preview of the Northern Conference meet at the annual Longmont Relays here Friday. As expected, Greelcy Central's sprinters put the Wildcats high in (he standings. In fact, if Central's 880-yard relay (earn hadn't -been disqualified, the Wildcats would have won the meet. Korl Collins emerged the meet champion with 44 points. Central and Longmont tied lor second with 30 points each. Poudre and Sterling were next with 18 points each. Greeley West had 16. Loveland and Fort Morgan had 12 points each. Though West finished low in the relay meet standings, two Spartans were standouts in individual competition. Senior Doug Fanning won the long jump with a leap of 20 feet'11 inches. Russ Overbeck of West won the high jump.going 6 feet 2 inches to beat Central's Lee DcBoer. Jay Anderson, Larry Gehring, Bob Cowles and Zack Ferrier learned for Central in three relay races and had the fastest times in all three. Central won the mile medley wilh a time of 3:46.8, and the Mile relay with a time of 3:35.1. The fast foursome was timed at 1:33.4 in the 880-yard relay and would have won the race and the meet if (he disqualification hadn't occurred. On the last exchange, the field judge ruled that the exchange was too soon. In the mile relay, a Longmonl runner fell, interferring with Cowles. So Longmont's team was disqualified in that race, enabling Central to gain a tie tor second in the final standings. West and Central were to go to the Aurora Relays today.
