Trackmen Break 16
School Records
  Wisconsin's 1970 indoor and
outdoor track teams combined to
set a total of 16 new school records
and equal one other in competition
through the Big Ten meet on
May 15.
  Competition for the Badgers still
lay ahead as the national USTFF,
NCAA, and National AAU meets
are slated for this month.
  Indoors, the Badgers set ten rec-
ords and tied one. Outdoors there
were six new marks set.
  Wisconsin's two mile and distance
medley relay teams competed in the
national USTFF indoor meet in the
Houston Astrodome in February
and turned in times that broke the
cld world record for the events,
even though not winning either race.
The two mile relay team of Chuck
Baker, John Cordes, Don Vandrey,
and Mark Winzenried was clocked
in 7:22.7-the old world mark was
7:22.8-in placing second to Kan-
sas State which won in 7:22.3.
  The distance medley relay team
of Baker, Cordes, Vandrey and
Winzenried was third in 9:36.0 be-
hind Houston and Villanova with
all three schools breaking the old
world mark of 9:44.6.
  Greg Johnson, outstanding per-
former from East St. Louis, Ill.,
established all-time bests in the long
jump both indoors (25-4) and
outdoors (25 feet ¾  inch), and
turned in the fastest time ever by a
Badger in the 60 yard high hurdles
at 7.1 seconds. He also tied the 60
yard dash mark at 6.2 seconds.
  Pat Matzdorf, Sheboygan sopho-
more, also set new high jump marks
indoors. (7-1¼) and outdoors
(6-11), while junior Mark Winz-
enried-who with Johnson won
three Big Ten titles-set a new 880
mark in 1:49.8 and the mile run
mark at 4:01.9, both all-time bests
by a conference performer for in-
door competition.
  Junior Mike Kane, La Crosse, set
a new three-mile mark outdoors at
13:58.6; freshman Glenn Herold
ran the two-mile indoors in 8:47.6,
and junior Fred Lands turned in
the best ever 3,000 meter Steeple-
chase time of 8:55.0. 0
