Injuries Plague Spikemen; Several School Marks Fall
In spite of injuries to several key runners and lack of depth in several events, Mayfair's track team has made a good showing in their meets with Paramount, Long Beach Jordan, Los Altos, and Duarte high schools.
Sprinter Bob Geilhausen, who last year posted times of 10.3 and 22.5 for the sprints, pulled up in the Paramount meet with a pulled muscle in his leg. Hurdler Gary Nance also sustained a leg injury in the same meet. Nance last year breezed over the 180 lows in a very swift 20.5 clocking Because of the injuries, neither Nance or Geilhausen have achieved their last year's best times.
Best Times
Outstanding times thus far have been a 2.08 clocking in the 880 by Larry Weidner.
Al Webber, competing for the 'B' team, ran a 10.5 in the century. Webber has also been running as anchor man in the relays.
Heavy-weight Bob Kempton is rounding into shape in the shot put. He tossed the 16 pounder 48'2" against Duarte. Big Bob is expected to take all comers this year in his specialty and go to the C.I.F. finals for the second year in a row.
Dominguez Relays
Carl Allen, Cee high jumper, led the Cee high jump team to a first place victory at Compton High School in the Dominguez Relays. Carl has a jump of 5'7" to his credit and has four years of competition ahead of him.
Mayfair's Bee pole vaulters also took first place at the relays.
Strong Points
Gary Johnson, senior high jumper and broad jumper, is picking up the points. Teamed with Gary Nance, they formed a big twosome in the broad jump. Bob Kempton is always tough in the shot put and Bob Geilhausen in sprits is a point getter for Coach Street.
