Friday, March 12,1976 -y.A-3 DENNIS R ASMUSSEN, ROB BLAINE COULD REST EASY AGAINST MOSCOW ... wmk early (23 poinls combined) as Warners rolled, 70-44 RAS LETS FIRE OVER 6-FOOT-7 WAYNE SPROUSE OF BEARS . . . PMOS by VK Da,ei.port Sprouse put heary pressure on, forced miss in lirsthall NNC tries for 2 school track bests N'AMPA -- Northwest Nnzarap.e goes after a pair of school records Saturday at (tic Oregon Relays in Salon. EX-COUGAR TIM GILBERT. Dashman for NNC Irackstc/s The NNC track team figures it has a good chance to set new marks in the distance and sprint medleys, and assistant coach Roger Schmidt figures the team is right. The meet, strictly relays, is an afternoon affair at the Willamette University track. NAIA national mile placer Steve Kills will be perhaps the busiest Crusader, with runs in the distance medley, 880 relay, and mile relay. He's anchoring them all, and running a rare 220 split in the 880 relay. "One thing we're trying to work on with Sieve is speed work," said Schmidt Thursday. "We're trying to change his workouts a little bit. and kind of save that mile for when the weather gels nicer and the lough competition is around. One thing's for sure -- he's getting enough work in the relays." Tim Gilbert, the multiple-event niun from Caldwell High, started his collegiate career with some fast limes at the Boise All-Comers meet, and the Crusaders will use him in four different evcnls. including the mile relay. Gilherl clocked 10.1 in the 100 -- just a tenth off his lifetime best as a prep -- and lhat kind of speed is being used at anchor in the 440 event al Salem. The sprint medley mark that NNC goes after is the 3:34.5. set in the 1974 season by Dave Streighl, Bob Jackson, Rex Rosenbaum. and Randy Fox. Just last week, N'NC lowered the school 440 relay record a tenth, wiping the old mark of 43.7 off the books that was set in 1972 by Dave Mangum. Sieve Wolfe. Jeans, and Bob Jackson.

"And where our players have the proper respecl for them and recognize what they must do lo win, Ihe same is true for St. John's."

"I'd like to gel al Indiana as soon as possible," said Marqueile coach Al McGuire. "The sooner the better. Too many things can happen in a lournamenl if you're looking ahead. "Indiana's been close to getting lo gelling heal a few limes and I Ihink they can be lightening some." As for the game against Western Kentucky, which posted a 20-8 record, McGuire said, "We don't think it's a piece of cake. We know Western Kentucky is a great ballclub."
