The Nebraska baseball team
climbed out of the Big Eight
cellar this weekend as they
captured two of three games
against Missouri at Columbia.
The Huskers won Friday's
opener 13-2 with 15 hits,
including a three-run homer by
second-baseman Sam Sharpe
and four hits in five attempts by
center fielder Gene Stohs.
Missouri came back in Friday's

The Nebraska defense put
on a show of strength during
Saturday's scrimmage as the
Husker football team ended its
second week of spring practice.
The aggressive defense took
its toll. Second-string
quarterback Steve Runty
suffered what was believed to
be strained shoulder muscles
when he was tackled following
a 15-yard 3in, the longest run
in the scrimmage.
While last Satuday's
scrimmage produced 14
offensive touchdowns, only six
scores were made
Saturday-including only two
by the first two offensive units.

When Saturday's dual track meet with
Oregon ended, most people went away
talking about two-miler Steve Prefontaine
and his 8:35.2 solo effort. True, Prefontaine
is in a class by himself as the premier
distance runner in America.
But Horace Levy and Leighton Priestley,
a pair of Jamaicans running for Nebraska,
also had good performances in the Huskers'
105-40 loss to powerful Oregon.
Levy was the meet's only double winner,
taking the 100-yard dash and the 220. Levy,
completing his first year in medical school at
Omaha, trains by himself and only sees the
Husker track team at meets. So far the
arrangement hasn't hurt him.
"It's different with a sprinter," he
explains. "We don't have that much training
to do. My studies haven't been much of a
Running with the wind Saturday in the
100, Levy clocked 9.5, one-tenth slower
than his personal best In the 220 Levy ran
21.8 to nip Oregon's Al Hearvey.
With Garth Case out of the meet with a
pulled muscle, Nebraska looked vulnerable in
the 440. No problem. Leighton Priestley
ripped off a 46.6 to win the event.
"I felt bad before the race," Priestley
said. "I thought it would be about 47.3 or
47.4. I tied up a little about 25 yards from
the finish, but that was because of the cold
Priestley's best time this year came two
weeks ago at a dual with the University of
Texas at El Paso. He ran 4S.2 there and has
been running consistently lower times this
season than last.
"Cross country work last fall helped a
lot," he said. "I ran miles and half-miles in
Pioneers Park. I'm also working with weights
now and doing something extra every day
besides what the coach gives us for a

past two years, Priestley is making people
notice him this year. He says it's possible
that he and Case could go 1-2 at the Big
Eight meet in May.
Travis Newsome from Oklahoma and
Mike Norman from Missouri will be tough,"
Priestley came to Nebraska after being
recruited by former Husker stars Lynn
Headley and Ray Harvey, both of Jamaica.
He is now one of four runners from

With a best freshman time of 47.3 and

hoping for a clocking of 45.5 this year. If he
gets that low by NCAA time he'll be
