At the St. John's Invitational he finished fourth and Rick Brandl, a junior from Flushing, N.Y., finished 19th in a field of 200 runners. Mutschelknaus won the Bemidji State Invitational, setting a record for the five-mile course of 24:34. Brandl finished seventh with what was the winning time the previous year. In the conference meet, the Cobbers made their best showmg ever with a fourth-place finish. The team came in eighth of 20 at the regional competition in Rock Island, Ill. There Mutschelknaus finished sixth, which qualified him for the NCAA Division Ill event.
