State Indoor Track Champions Cross Country Team
Typhoons Win Indoor Title

The TYPHOONS regained their title at Lexington by defeating Indoor State Track Champions, Washington and Lee of Arlington, for the State Indoor Track Championship.
Sparked by all-around standout Fred Anspach, and pole vaulter-hurdler Harry Barritt, the TYPHOONS placed in six events.  Fred Anspach took a first in the broad jump and a second in the 400 yard run, while Harry Barritt had a first in the pole vault and a second in the 70 yard high hurdles.  The TYPHOONS were also helped by a second, third, and a fourth place finish in the shot put by Jimmy Bull, Joe Wingo, and John Todd, respectively.  Other places won by Newport News were a fourth place in the pole vault and a second place in the mile relay.

Harriers Have Disappointing Season

The N.N.H.S. Harriers led by Jim Moore, captain, Mike Burns, and Steven Smith, won three meets and lost five.  They finished ninth in the Portsmouth J.C. Invitational Meet held at Frederick College, and seventh in the Eastern District Meet.  Next year, Coach Conn will have returning to the squad Steven Smith, Ken Taylor, Charles Shields, Larry Mercer, and George Fenigsohn.

   Running Scared 

(Roy Orbison)

  Just running scared, each place we go.
 So afraid that he might show.
 Yeah, running scared, what would I do
 If he came back, and wanted you?
 Just running scared, feeling low.
 Running scared. You loved him so.
 Just running scared, afraid to lose.
 If he came back, which one would you choose?
 Then, all at once, he was standing there.
 So sure of himself, his head in the air.
 My heart was breaking. Which one would it be?
 You turned around and walked away with me.
