  • Who Am I ? # 4

    In 1958, I was really trying to help my team win the NCAA, but we lost, although we did quite well. I did ok in my best event, I suppose, but I only got 8th in this other event. Who am I ? Hint: I was pretty good in my best event.

    While looking up the places (not names) of the 6 '56 Gold Medalists to answer your other question on the '58 NCAA Championships, I found that Al Oerter finished 8th in the shot put at 54' 1/2" that year.

    His school, Kansas, took second in the team score with 40 3/4. USC won with 48 6/7, Villanova was third with 33 3/4.

    Oerter put the shot regularly for Kansas, reaching a best of 56' 11' that year.

      EastBay, you surely, surely are today's top man. You got it. I guess was hoping he could get a point or two for the Jayhawks.

        Eleven years later there was a similar story. Van Reenan won the DT but fared worse than expected in the SP, think he scored, but can't remember off the top of my head. Wazoo lost by a point to USC. Lingren had his usual good meet.
