MARK SMITH of Curtis smashed the old Invitational record ar t also placed second in the put. Smith threw the 180'2" for the record. Shelton's Highclimber cindermen showed they are the Black Hills League's power again when they demolished Hoquiam's Grizzlies 97-39 Friday on Loop Field for their seventh dual meet win without a loss. The host Climbers grabbed 12 of 16 first places, took 12 more seconds and swept three events completely. Senior Paul Rogerson and junior Rob Settle were double winners for Shelton. Rogerson won the 100 in 10.7, the 220 in 23.9, and also ran a leg of the winning 880 relay. Settle continued to shine in his specialties, the high hurdles and high jump. He ran the 120 yards of the hurdle race in 15.9 and leaped 6'4" in the high jump. Settle holds the junior class record in the hurdles and is the school record holder in the high jump at 6'6". Rocky Nutt, who was to go on and have a sensational day at the Invitational on Saturday, finished second to Settle in both the highs and high jump. Nutt, a senior, also won the low hurdles in 21.9. Senior George Lemagie glided throhgh the quarter mile in 54.5 to win the 440. He also ran a leg of the victorious mile relay. Junior Mike Hays had his personal best time of 4:48.5 in the mile to win. His team mate, junior Rich James, finished second to Hays in the mile but won the longer race, the two mile. James is the school record holder in the two mile. Friday he paced a 10:41.4 clocking. Jimmy Johnsen went just over 19 feet to win the long jump. The junior's official distance was 19'". Gary Burger didn't have to work hard in the 880 to win. His qualifying time for the Invitational a week ago was 2:02.1, and Burger's time in the race with Hoquiam was 2:08.5. It was his slowest race since the first meet of the year. Now with a perfect 7-0 record for the season, the Highclimbers will try to clinch the Black Hills League championship this Friday in Tumwater when they take on Bill Yandle and company in Tumwater. Yandle was one of the best 100, 220 and broad jump men in the Invitational Saturday. The coach of this undefeated cinder team is Bill Brickert. His assistant is Walt Clayton.

The varsity game will start at 1:00 p.m. on Loop Field and will be followed by a junior varsity game. Either Terry Knight or Kevin Dorcy will be on the mount for the varsity contest, while Dan Bourgault or Ray Krumpols will be starting for the junior varsity. IIIIIIUIilIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlUlIIIIII By CHARLES GAY Six records were broken and two more tied in Shelton's Invitational Saturday as several outstanding athletes completely rewrote the history books of the meet. Shelton's own Highclimbers had one of their finest days and finished in sixth place with 24 points. Lincoln of Tacoma was the winner of the meet. The Abes ran away with the point title, amassing 102 points to their nearest rival's 45. Five firsts and four more seconds accounted for 82 of the winners' points. Wilson of Tacoma was the second place finisher and Mt. Rainier and Port Angeles tied for third with 32 points each. If an "outstanding athlete" award might have been elected after the meet, any one of the record breakers could have been that matt. Jerry Belur of Renton was amazing in the hurdles. He holds the country's best prep time of 19.0 in the 180 lows. Belur set two records in preliminary heats on Saturday afternoon, and capped the day off with victories in both hurdle races that night. He won his heat of the high hurdles on the hot afternoon with a 14.7 second clocking. That broke the one-year old mark of 14.8 set by Tyee's Ken Miller. In the finals, Belur ran a 14.8 to win. Belur's 20.0 time in the low hurdle prelims set the other record that also was only a year old. Saturday night he ran the distance in 20.3 seconds. Wilson Morris of Wilson looked like he was floating or gliding as he set a new meet record in the 220. After he ran away from the field in the prelims in both the 100 and 220, Morris smashed the meets oldest record in the 220 by four tenths of a second Saturday night. His time was 21.8. In both the prelims and finals, he tied the 100 record of 10.0 seconds. Morris joined three other sprinters who have a ten fiat clocking in the meet's history. He also had a part in still another record. Morris ran a 220-yard leg of Wilson's winning 880 relay team that tied the meet's best of 1:31.9. Mark Smith, Curtis' only man in the meet, made all of his team's 18 points that enabled Curtis to tie for ninth. After throwing the discus 185 feet in practice (the record was 167'9"), Smith had an official throw of 180'2" that broke the record by over 12 feet. The one man team also took second in the shot put with a heave of 54'II". The crowd marveled at how Smith's low throws were going 20 feet father than his nearest opponents'. If Smith, Morris and Belur were amazing, then Lincoln's Joel Braggs was both amazing and entertaining. The tall Abe had everyone outclassed in the high jump. The crowd chuckled when he passed until 6'0" and didn't take off his sweats until 6'6", Next he cleared 6'8" (he. was all alone after 6'4"), rolled over 6'10" and just missed 7'0". Braggs had been co-holder of the record at 6'6" when he took second on misses last year. This season he came back and left no doubt who was best and grabbed the record all to himself at 6'I0". The fans that crowded around the pits loved it when he cleared 6'2" by what looked like a foot, and again when he barely kicked the bar on the way down after clearing 7'0". Braggs saved the state's best jump of the season for the Shelton Invitational. Page 10 - Shelton-Mason County Journal - Thursday, May 6, 1971 LEAPING 22 FEET, six inches on the broad jump, North Thurston's Devin Brown won that event and also took second in the triple jump~and third in the pole vault. The relatively new triple jump has a new record distance every year. This time it was Jeff Hill of Washington that smashed the old mark by 11 inches. He hopped, stepped and jumped 44'11". Shelton's Highclimbers had their best score in recent years. Fine individual performances by Rocky Nutt, Rob Settle, George Lemagie and Chris Elmlund, Paul Rogerson, Tracy Armstrong and Lemagie in'the mile relay enabled the Climbers to top 22 other schools, including every school in the Black Hills League. Rocky Nutt qualified for the final heat of the low hurdles by winning his preliminary heat in a school record time of 21.0. In the finals, he finished fourth behind Belur, and broke his four hour old school record with a 20.9 clocking. He was six tenths of a second behind Belur. Nutt not finish in a tie for sixth. S~veral Black Hills League members did well in the meet. Devin Brown, North Thurston's jumper who has been to the nationals in the Jaycee summer program, was first in the long jump, second in the triple jump and third in the pole vault. He earned all but one half of a point of his team's score. Centralia's Toby Robillard was first in the shot with a heave of 56'" and he finished sixth in the discus. Tumwater's Bill Yandle was third in the 220 and tied for sixth in the 100. Mike Filyaw of Hoquiam was second in the discus and third in the shot. Winners not already mentioned were Tony Harvey of Lincoln in the 440 at 51.3; Steve Phillips of Port Angeles in the 880 with a fine time of 1:57.8; Dave Richard of Mt. Tahoma in the only achieved his lifetime best in - mile with a 4:27.8 clocking; Leon the hurdles, but also the high Bombardier of Liricoin with a jump. He cleared 6'2" with his flop style and nabbed fourth. The partisan Shelton fans cheered as Rocky went 5'10", then 6'0" and then 6'2". Rob Settle got the highest individual place for the Highclimbers when he placed second to Braggs in the high jump. Settle, who jumped 6'4", beat Mike Van Tongeren of Mark Morris on misses. The junior holds Shelton's school record of 6'6". He failed to qualify for finals in the high hurdles prelims. Rogerson, Elmlund, Armstrong and Lemagie teamed up to give Shelton second in the mile relay with a new school record time of 3:32.2. They won their heat and finished two seconds behind the winner of the first heat, Lincoln. Lemagie had the fastest time of the 440 qualifiers in the meet, since Eric Iverson of Clover Park ";dn't show. He ran a 52.5 to 9:42.7 in the grueling two mile; and Lincoln's Mike Hilderbrand in thJe pole vault at 14'3". Records were expected to fall at this meeting of the superhuman bodies. Athletes seem to improve and the Invitational's records get better every year.
