Tribune . f ; Sports Pages, Marcus Newton, Editor; Steve Bauer, Assistant The University of Northern Colorado track team enters this Saturday's Southern Colorado nvitational meet in the role f favorite. Meet time is 12:30 at Centennial Field in Pueblo. Eleven colleges will be repre- ;enled. Of those, the Bears have lefealed five in earlier en- jountefs -- Southern Colorado, Adams Slate, Colorado Mines, Melro Slate and Regis. UNC will be led by triple umper Hugo Jacobsmeyer, who irabbcd a sixth-place finish in ast weekend's Kansas Relays, facobsmeyer soared 48-2 and vas Ihe lone Bear placewinner. The triple jump will be a livolal event in determining the "inal outcome of the invila- ional. Bolh Jacobsmeyer and Veslern Stale's ' Aubrey Tale lave jumped over 48 feet this spring. Tate has a 49-514 leap 'o bis credit. Both SCSC and Adams Stale ·ate as strong challengers to JNC, although the Bears do ! ealed both squads in a Iriangu- ar at Jackson Field three weeks ago. However, Bear head coach Tom Benich sees a need for lis team to perform well to ake Ibis weekend's meet. "Al .he SCSC Invitational, teams are only allowed two entrants in each event," sand Benich. This may hamper the Bears, who have won many rimes this season on depth. Rockets Sign Claude Terry DENVER (AP) - Stanford Jniversity's greatest basketball aoint-maker, Claude Terry, has signed a contract with the Denver Rockets of the American Basketball Association, club ^resident Alex Hannum an- lounced toriay. Terms of the contract were not released. The 6-foot-o, 195-pound guarc was a top draft choice of the Rockets and was picked in the hird round of the NBA draft by the Phoenix Suns. Terry was a three-year starter wilh Stanford, was an all Pac 8 selection and was named to Ihc All-Coast team. The 100-yard dash, shot put, and discus should produce some narrow victories, wilh a number of competitors showing similar performances. . ' Mick Busch will tangle with Wayne Harris of SCSC in the 100. Both have been clocked at 9.7. In the shot and discuss, six men are within six inches of each other. An interesting battle will take place in the 400 rejay. Both UNC and Southern ..'Colorado's teams should be in the running. UNC has a 42.2 best this year white the Indians own a 43.0 :ime. The Bears narrowly defeated SCSC in their previous meeting. Next week the Bears will host llieir own invitational in a final luneup before Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference regional qualifying meet May 13.
