Article "Father-Son Team Leads to Agnew"

Description

This article highlights the Agnew Award given to the Virginia State University athletic department. A player named Walter L. Lovett Jr. was "in violation of the transfer and the academic requirements." The Trojans had to forfeit the two events Lovett Jr. participated in, which caused them to lose the conference championship. Virginia State was the second college in the Richmond area with eligibility problems. The other team was the University of Richmond Spider track squad. The team's inability to meet academic requirements was keeping athletes out of national competitions, including the track team's Norman Williams, the first black student on the team.
