Just three little words
from Husker assistant coach
Ike Hanscom summed up the
track meet from the Husker
standpoint: "It's all over.''
It may be all over for the
indoor season, but the Husker
tracksters still have the fight
ing spirit and the cry is now
"Wait 'till the outdoor meet "
After all 11-12 of a point
isn't as large a victory as
the long-dominant Jayhawks
of Kansas would have liked.

the officials had been a little
more on the ball, the o u t
