Grant Hall Two Seconds A Year Means Big Improvement In 880 As a sophomore at Fayetteville High School in 1971, Tracy Bramlett ran the 880 in 1:59. As a junior, he did a 1:57. Last year he got down to 1:55 and was generally regarded as the best half-miler in the state. So what time did he run in his freshman year at State College of Arkansas? You guessed it. In the AIC meet, Tracy placed third with a time of 1:53.2. He fully intends to keep paring two seconds a year off his time while at SCA. "And if I ever get to where I can run l:47s and 1.48s consistently, I'll keep running after college," he said. At the recent NAIA meet in Arkadelphia, he got to see what sub-l:50 880s looked like. "In one semifinal heat, there were five guys under 1:50," he said. "It was beautiful." In his own heat, Bramlclt ran against world-class half-miler Mike Boit of Eastern New Mexico, via Kenya. "He's unbelievable," said Tracy. "B'or most of the race, he was looking back over his shoulder at us. Then he said 'see ya later' and took off." That's the kind of runner Tracy would like to be. He can think of at least three reasons why he might get there. One is his coach, Bill Stephens. "He takes a sincere interest in me, and not just as a runner," said Tracy. "He's like Scott Van Hoose, my high school coach, in that he makes me work." The second reason is that he plans to take better advantage of the cross country season from now on: "I realize now that cross country can make me as a half- miler. Last year I didn't work as hard as I could have at it. This summer I'll get ready for cross country by running 70 or 80 miles a week before school starts." Third, and most important to Tracy, is his fiancee, Becky Williams. "She's my inspiration," he says. Such an inspiration, in fact, that he's working two jobs in preparation for an August 9 wedding date. Becky is soon to be a Licensed Practicing Nurse. When the three of us met for a quick lunch at the Washington Regional Medical Center cafeteria this week, Tracy informed Becky that he was being interviewed for a sports column. "What did you do?" she asked mischievously. Turning to me, he said, "That's what I like about her." One He'll Never Live Down Tracy has run a 4:25 mile and thinks he could do a 48-second quarter, but figures the 880 is his best race. Still, he hasn't mastered the pacing of the race yet. At SCA, he'll never live down one race in which he ran the opening quarter in 51 seconds and the second 440 in 67 seconds. "The coach told me to set the pace, and boy, did I set the pace," he recalled. "When I heard the guy announce 51 seconds as the split, I said, 'Oh, no 1 ' My time was 1:20 at the 660 mark, but it was all over then." He limped the final 220 in 38 seconds, practically walking at the end. "I really freaked everybody out," he concluded. Joining Bramlett at SCA this fall will be Robert Beith of West Memphis, the 880 winner in the Meet of Champions (he past two years. Tracy defeated Beith last year, but fell victim to a questionable lane infraction. Beith ran a 1:54.3 this year. "I'm glad he's coming," said Tracy. "We should be able to help each other. That's one good thing abo-Jt SCA -- all the alhletes pull for each other and respect each other. For instance, the football players wouldn't think of getting on the track while we're practicing." This fall, one of those footba'll players will be Tracy's brother Barry, a 6-1, 170-pound' prospective cornerback. At 6-1 and 165, Tracy would like to play football too, but the overlapping cross country season and his pre-med studies prevent it. That hardly dampens his infectious enthusiasm, though. As he says, "I'm 18, and most middle distance runners don't mature until they reach (heir twenties These next few years should be my host." Trio Treks To Wichita University of Arkansas three-milcr Steve Houk met the NCAA qualifying standard of 13:50 this year with his school-record time of 13:49.8, but he won't run in the national meet at Austin this week. "He Â· has an Achilles tendon injury," explained Razorback distance coach John McDonnell. "If he were to rupture it, he could be out all next year." With Houk out, it was left' to teammates Randy Meiancon, Tom Aspol and Niall O'Shaughnessy to trv to qualify for the NCAAs at the U.S. Track and Field Federation meet in Wichita over the weekend. Meian- con carried with him the confidence of his school- record 4:04.8 mile at the Memphis Cup Invitational mnel on May 25. Randy actually ran an unattached 4:03.3 last year between seasons at Southwestern Louisiana and Arkansas. The NCAA has a rule that you have fo complete 24 hours afler you transfer'before you can compete" he explained. The transfer cost'him no loss m eligibility -- he'll have (wo more years to compete at Arkansas. *n-i If Â» l V;r- f 'l i ', cd to mcct the l"alif.ving standard of 4:04 at Wichita, Meiancon planned to try the three- mile run Saturday night.

Not only was Hoard's score 1 .he best on the tour this season, so was the over-all scoring. The ligh man in the field for three rounds had a 215 total, one under par. It was the first time in ma ny yea rs--pe rha ps e ver-- .hat the entire field sporte'd mb-par figures. Bob Menne, who hasn't made expenses in. the last couple of fears and has just enough lankrbll for gas money to the next stop, tied Trevino for second place in the chase for the 5[),OW first prize in this "cJesig- Â·latci! tournament." one of ;hree events on the schedule .his year in which leading players are required to compete. Trevino, who had set the course record with a 64 iti Friday's second round, went to a 69 and a 203 total. Menne had a steady 67 in which he didn't make a bogey and didn't miss a. green. Billy Casper, Hubert Green and J.C. Snead were another shot back at 204. Casper had a J7 he said he didn't deserve-"I'm playing just terrible," he said. "I shouldn't even have made the cut,"--Green had a 68 and Snead a 69 in the hot, muggy, almost windless weather. At 205 were Gibby Gilbert, Ray Floyd and Bert Yancey. Ftoyd and Yancey matched 66s, Gilbert had a 70. Young Tom Kite, a tour soph omore and the first man off the tec, matched Trevino's course record at 64 and moved into a large group at- 206, 10 under par. That put 14 players locked with in six strokes going into today's last round. "The way they're playing the course,'' Heard observed "I'm a long way from being safe. I've got a good chance, of course, but a lot depends on how I get started tomorrow." Australian Bruce Cramplon was seven shots out with a 69-207 with most of, the rest of the game's great names spaced out still further back. Jack Nicklaus had another 69 and was eight strokes behind at Johnny .Miller, a five-time winner this season, matched par 72 for 210. Masters cham- )ion Gary Player also had a 72 and, at 214, led only two men in the final field of 72. Arnold Palmer and Tom Weiskopf failed to survive the cut for the final two rounds. Heard, 27, in his si\th year on the tour, one-putted 10 times on the massive, carpet-smooth greens that have hetped produce the exceptionally low scor- " g . Heard, who usually whistles softly to himself as he strolls down. the fairway, took command with a 31 on the back nine, five uticJci par. That broke up a massive logjam in which seven players had led or shared the lead at one time or another. He'd holed a pair of birdie putts of 20-25 feet or the f r o n t nine, then bolted into the lead with his string of four consecutive birdies beginning on the 10th hole. He wedged up to 10 feet there, stroked a beautiful five- iron to within two feet of the flag on the next hole, scorec from 20 feet on the next ant made it from eight feet on the next. Heard, who, like Player, raises quarter-horses as a side line, pumped a six-iron shot lo within about eight feet on the last hole and made the putt lo say three in front of Trevino.
