Lee's swimmers | triumph over pre-season favori! travel to Freeport Thursday for Pasadena Rayburn, while the what they hope will be a favorable preview for next week's district swimming meet. This clash between the aquatic powers of 12-tA has been shaping up all year with both teams compiling undefeated records against district opponents heading into the contest. The Exporters have only one blemish on an otherwise perfect record and that blemish came at the hands of Houston Westbury who squeezed out a two point victory over Brazos- port. That loss, however has been offset somewhat with a surprising Brazosport win over the Rice freshman team. The Exporters head into the Ganders were resting their fins after five consecutive weeks of competition. Manpower is Brazosport's main problem having only 10 men on the team and further hindered by the injury of one of their stalwarts, Randy Crosley. Crosley is ailing with a food injury suffered against Texas City and though he will probably complete against the Gangers, his performance is not expected to be up to its usual winning level. The dual meet will get under way at 6 p.m. in the Brazosport ryout Dates Set : or Baytown LL baseball Program Two dates have been set for the 1966 Baytown Little League tryouts, along with three differ ent locations for tryouts.

Lee Relays, set for Saturday in' Baytown, is also one of the smoothest operating. This well-known fact can be attributed to the large staff of co - operative personnel that shares a hand in running it off. This year REL track Coach Beverly Rockhold has 129 volunteers, counting 70 student helpers, working as one unit in running off the meet in various capacities. "The staff of help is something that makes the meet go." Rockhold said. "Like Woodrow Whatley." Rockhold continued. "He's probably the best starter in the state. And people like Roy Elms and John Sylves[ter have helped me since the imeet started. I "I would just like to thank everybody that used their own time to help us make the Lee Relays one of the best," Rockhold said.
