1975 Dual Meet TR-HF, start of the 2 Mile. Zapchenk, Duncker, Wagner (l-r) in front, Midtlyng, Youga (l-r) in back. The Wales Wonder (Mike Prizy) is not shown, Lane 1.  I believe Priz won the race. It was a frigid day, Zapchenk was trying to show some Senior leadership and ran without gloves or hat, nobody followed which was typical...  J.Z.

Wags update...: Regarding the picture of the start of the 2 mile against H-F, I won the varsity race and Jim Galen won the the frosh/soph race.  Both races were run at the same time, Jim Galen and I ran together the whole way, Galen sprinted to cross the finish line first.  It was my first ever varsity dual meet win, even though Galen beat me to the finish line to claim the frosh/soph win.  J.W.
