That evening the baseball SIU records number 11 at NCAA Southern Illinois University swimming coach Bob Steele will spend the week rearranging his record board following the Salukis' performance at the NCAA swimming championships. The eight-man squad broke 11 SIU records in scoring 25 points and placing 16th last weekend in what Steele called, "the greatest national meet ever." Mike Salerno turned in a 51.2 to place sixth in the 100-yard backstroke following his school record time of 51.1 in the preliminaries. Salerno later finished 2.1 seconds under his SIU record in the 200-back, but placed a non-scoring 15th in 1:52.7. A slightly disappointed Jorge Delgado came in sixth in his Olympic specialty, the 200-yard butterfly, where he qualified second with a lifetime best of 1:49.2. ' "Delgado was ready and swam well in the race," said Steele, "but he swam some hard races previously and his legs gave out in the final 50 yards." Saluki captain Dave Swenson cut eight seconds from his previous best in the 1650-yard -freestyle placing him seventh in 16:34.3. On the way, Swenson smashed the '1,000-yard record in 9:28.1. "We're not. at all disappointed with our finish," said STeele, "We broke records by seconds, not tenths, and our performances were great under a lot of pressure." It was just an unbelievably fast meet." The Salukis' next travel to the NAAU and Pan American trials at Cincinnati, Ohio, Wednesday through Saturday.

By Jimmy Dean Of The Southern Illinoisan Don Coryell has been called honest, hard-working, dedicated and many other well deserving names.

Logan C o ll'e ge Foundation's Spring Banquet on the campus of John A. Logan College in Carterville. Coryell, who was named Coach of the Year this season, talked on his experiences with the junior college programs and touched on many phases of the juco system. "To a football coach, football comes first. Only the family and a few other things come ahead of it.

Coaches champs 1: sm iillpll Ki "I once had a college instructor ask me what I wanted to be, and when I told him a football coach he just laughed. But that was always my ambition, to become a coach and help kids go to school and get an education," Coryell said. "I'm here tonight because I'm in love with junior colleges and how they work. Kids that never did anything in high school come to a junior college and do so many things not only in athletics, but more important, in furthering their education. "I'm very proud of my first batch of recruits at San Diego State. All 17 were junior college transfers and all 17 graduated. This makes me feel very, very highly of junior colleges."

His biggest success came at San Diego State where he guided the Aztecs to three unbeaten seasons and had winning streaks of 25 and 31 straight games. "One of the things that sticks out in my mind when I was coaching in college was once having a president of the school n j0fl sity meet were: Marion 71, Harrisburg 54' and Meridian 50.

Bill Meade promised that his Southern Illinois University gymnasts would beat somebody at the NCAA championships this weekend at Indiana State University. In the process of beating somebody, the Salukis surprised everyone by joining California and Louisiana State as qualifiers for the team finals. California led entering the final round Saturday afternoon with 217.15. LSU is second at 215.40 and the Salukis had 214.10. "If we had Jim Ivicek, there is no doubt we would be leading right now," Meade said. "After Jim was hurt, I said we would be happy just to beat somebody although we knew we wouldn't finish last." Included amon? the teams Meade's crew beat out was the host Indiana State squad which won the NCAA Eastern Regional a the SIU. Arena two weeks ago. The Sycamores, telling me not to win too many games. Just about 51 per cent. That way no one gets upset about losing and no one puts pressure on you to keep on winning if you win too many," said the coach who was named NCAA District College Division Coach of the 'Year four times and also had his San Diego State team ranked as the nation's top .college division team in 1966-67 by both wire services. Coryell didn't fail to talk about his current job as head coach , of the Cardinals, a job he took over in 1973. "There's not a bit of difference," said Coryell when asked about the difference between coaching at a college level compared to the professional ranks.

On Hart, the soft-spoken Coryell had nothing but praise for' the Southern Illinois University graduate who guided the Cardinals to a 10-4 record this season and was named Player of the Year. "Jim Hart is a great one. If he hadn't been in there, we'd been in trouble. He really helped to 'make us a winner this year," Coryell said in a question and .answer session following the two-and-a-half hour banquet.

Among the teams the 'Breds have defeated have been Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee, Austin Peay, Iowa State, Southern Illinois (Carbondale), Illinois, Rutgers, North Dakota Brown, Providence and Purdue.

Pearson is sporting a 3-0 record in this, his sophomore season, and has an earned run average of less than 1.00. His best games this year were a 4-1 three-hit win over Iowa State and a 9-1 four-hit win over Providence.

The 19-year-old physical education major, who played both basketball and baseball at Cobden, has a career mark of . 6-1 at Murray State. He may start Monday against the Salukis. When asked about Coryell's decision about calling th plays rather than the quarterback he said, "Jim doesn't likeus calling the plays at all." "All quarterbacks like to call their own game but we feel the quarterback has a tremendous amount of pressure and we have two men up on top that are away from the; confusion and can see where the defense is breaking down." "Most important about us calling the plays is we know what is going to be called. We can see how the defense has been reacting and what spots we want to go after. Coryell drew much praise from his peers this year by being named NFL Coach Of the Year by the Associated Press, the Sporting News, United Press International and Pro Football Weekly.
