SEMO Track Meet

SEMO track c 1964-1967Like I mentioned in another track story, the boys and girls of spring didn’t get a lot of attention. Their sports usually took place after the yearbooks closed, and they didn’t have the hoopla of basketball, football and even baseball.

I’m pretty sure this shot won some prize or another in a photo contest, but I can’t remember which one. I suspect it was less because it was a great shot (although I do like the falling hurdle), but for the fact that it doesn’t show any wardrobe malfunctions. It’s almost a cliche shot, but one of the reasons that some phrases and photos become cliches is that they tend to work.

  1. I recognize Mike Johnson Central grad, in the long jump and Larry Freeze, Jackson grad, in the hurdles. Probably 1968 season.

  2. On the picture of the long jump, the two men on the right were SEMO football players Curt Wacker and David Pritchard. I was a freshman footballer at SEMO in 1967 and Wacker was a senior and Pritchard was a junior. The coaches made some of the football players help at the track meets. I’m sure that is why they were there.
