Last spring the Husker track team traveled to the
University of Wisconsin for an indoor meet. In that meet,
Husker Lynn Hall ran a 4:06.3 mile, setting a UNL record
in that event. In another race the same day, Hall ran two
miles in 8:48.9, the second fastest time in Husker history.
Only Bob Unger, with a time of 8:47.6, has run that race
That outstanding double performance has helped
establish Hall as one of the best distance runners in the Big
8. He solidified that reputation by winning the mile in his
outdoor debut at the Oklahoma Invitational April 6.
This weekend Hall wili turn his attention to the 4-mile
run and probably the distance medley relays, according to
Coach Frank Sevigne. The Huksers will hit the second leg of
the relay curcuit by traveling to Lawrence for tht Kansas
Relays Friday and Saturday.
Hall said he has no specific goals this season, although
the elusive 4-minute mile is one feat that he wouldn't mind
"I'm just thinking about doing a lot of running., I'm
taking it week to week," he said. "I'm going to try to get as
close to four as I can."
His previous best mile outdoors is a 4:03.8, which he ran
against the University of Missouri (MU) in 1972. That time
puts him second on the all-time outdoor list. A
sub-4-minute mile would vault him past Greg Carlberg into
Sevigne believes Hall can achieve that feat. He places
Hall in the same category as Charlie McMullen of MU, Jeff
Schernmel of Kansas State University and Mike Manke of
Oklahoma State University, the better milers in the
Hall said he intends to run more during practice to help
bring his time down. Ha also said he might have to change
in his strategy for the mile. In earlier meets this year, he has
laid back and tried to catch the leaders toward the end of
Hall still holds the Nebraska high school record for the
mile, set while he was a senior at Grand Island High School.
His time in the state meet was 4:16, 110 of a second faster
than Dan Speck, now his roommate and Husker teammate.
When asked about his biggest thrill in track. Hall didn't
mention the high school race or his double in Wisconsin. In
fact, he didn't mention any specific race at all.
"Any time you run the best time you've ever had, you
feel pretty good," he said.

attract 2,000 'sports'
With the coming of spring, an avalanche of intramural
recreational activities are available to UNL students. Currently,
Phil Sienna, coordinator of men's intra murals, is supervising
tennis doubles; golf doubles; horseshoe doubles; one-on-one NBA
(a basketball event pitting two people against each other); soccer;
outdoor track and field; and softball.
"Without a doubt spring is our most hectic time of the year.
Our sports must be completed before dead week. With in excess
of 2,000 students participating in our various outdoor programs
we become very dependent on the weather," Sienna said.
Soccer is making its debut on the spring schedule. Ten teams
have been fielded for two divisions. No more than two members
from the UNL Soccer Club are sRowed to compete on any ona
team, Sienna said. "The Soccer Club members add stability to the
teams and hopefully can teach novices something of the intricacy
of the sport."
This year an organization or living unit was limited to entering
one softball team, either a fast pitch or slow pitch squad. These
measures were necessary in order to decrease the number of
"Softball is a very frustrating sport to run in the intramural
program. We have a very good participation rate among the
students and weather becomes an all-important factor, it is really
difficult to find diamonds where rescheduled games may be
played. We just don't have enough time to do the sport justice,"
Sienna said. i
Now completing his third year at UNL, Sienna reports the
recently completed wrestling tournament was among one of the
smoothest ran events he has yet supervised.
"I owe a great deal of thanks to varsity wrestler Tony Jennings
who for the past two years has volunteered and. given
uncountable help in supervising the affair. Our level of
competition this year was very good."
Sienna offers softball as the perfect example of UNL's
increased interest in intramural?. "We have as many softball teams
this year as last, even with out new restriction."
