"The leadership that Cal and Tony have given to

Gregory and Lee Harris, but they really have picked
up the slack and done and outstanding overall job for
us the past three years."

you know it is capable of upsetting anyone."

against the Tigers.
Fort has 368 points, the third highest rookie total

Fresh from their second straight Big Eight Conference
championship, the Nebraska indoor track team goes after the
NCAA indoor crown today at Cobo Arena in Detroit.
Coach Frank Sevigne will take 16 trackmen to Detroit in an
attempt to capture the national championship that has eluded
his during his 1 7 years at Nebraska.
The usually conservative Sevigne admits that this year's
Husker squad has a good chance to win the cahmpionship if
they can get some breaks.
"It usually only takes around twenty points to win a
national meet," Sevigne said. "And I think we should get some
solid performances in a couple of relays and open events."
Sevigne, whose highest previous finish in the national indoor
was third in 1966, said he expects Manhattan College of New
York, Big Ten Champion Indiana and Southern Cal to be some
of the top teams in the meet.
The Husker coach will be hoping for top individual
performances from three men, Bob Unger, Ron Childs and
Childs will be competing in the long jump after placing
second in the Big Eight with an NU record-breaking leap of
Webb, who finished second to Steve Pettes in the 60-yard
dash at the Big Eight meet, said he is looking forward to
another crack at the Oklahoma speedster.
"There is nothing I can do about the way the Big Eight race
came out because the judges have decided that," Webb said.
"But I'm getting a second chance in the national, and I'm
going into it confident I can win."
Unger, the Cornhuskers' distance ace, will be running in the
open two-mile run against John Halberstadt of Oklahoma
State, the man who beat him for the Big Eight gold medal.
In the Big Eight two-mile race some felt that Unger may
have won had the officials waved off the slovyer runners who
got in Ungers' way during his stretch run against Halberstadt.
Nebraska could also score well in the hurdle races with
Huskers Gary Gressett and Ralph Fisher. Both placed well in
the Big . Eight, scoring 14 points toward the team
Although Sevigne has other persons entered in individual
events, he is expected to pull them out of their specialties to
load-up his relay teams.
This means Big Eight champions Roger Chadwick in the
880-yard run and co-captain Jim Hawkins in the 1,000-yard
run, will by nnss a chance for individual national
championships to concentrate on helping the squad's chances
at the title.
Preliminary events will be run this afternoon and evening,
with finals Saturday afternoon.
