Sigma Chi Wins IM Track Meet

By Craig Andera
Sigma Chi scored 150.5 points to run away with the first annual Intramural Track meet, held last Sunday. Burton Conner took second place with 132.5 points, while Phi Sigma Kappa was third with 106 points on the day. About 50 people participated in the event.

Competition was fierce for the remaining places, with MacGregor House D Entry claiming 36 points, Hong Kong Students' Society scoring 35, Blitz totaling 34, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon tallying 33. Chi Phi and Alpha Delta Phi each entered a single relay team, scoring 9 and 8 points respectively.

Though there have been intramural meets in the past, Sunday's competition was the first in several years.

Participants competed in seven events: the long jump, the quarter-mile, the mile, the 100-meter dash, the shot put, the 800-meter relay, and the sprint medley relay.

In the women's division, Burton Conner won easily, scoring an impressive 106 points, including a 30 point run in the long jump. PSK dominated the men's competition, scoring 96. But it was Sigma Chi's depth--74.5 points from the men, 76 points from the women--that propelled it to first place in the overall competition.
