  25. 25. 1968 BOYS TRACK TEAM WINS STATE! <ul><li>Tom Likens increased West's scoring total, tying for second place in the pole vault. Proviso West clinched the team title when Vallicelli won the 200-yard dash, running the long straight-away at Champaign's Memorial Stadium in 21.9 seconds. </li></ul><ul><li>When the final points were tallied, Proviso West stood atop the team scores with 20 1/2 points, 4 1/2 points ahead of state runner-up East St. Louis Lincoln. The long campaign to secure the first-place trophy was finally realized in a true team effort. </li></ul>
  26. 26.
