NINTH GRADE HHHBAH This year's ninth grade football team nearly tied the per- fect record that only two other Abbott freshmen teams have set. It completed the season undefeated and unscored upon. The team, under the supervision of Coach Frank Myers and the leadership of Captain Don Toppel, went for five wins, no lose ses, and one 0-0 tie. The total number of points made by Ab- bott was 101 to their opponents 0. The Abbott freshmen teams from 1933 to 1949 have succeeded in winning 82 per cent of their games.

HBHIH GRAIN HHHBAH The Abbott eighth grade football team this year numbered thirty-three boys who were full of team spirit. The boys turned out well for practices and gave every opposing team a good fight. The team was coached by Mr. Carl Summers and the acting captain was Barry Puklin. Outstanding play- ing was done by Bud Wells, Barry Puklin, Wayne Larson, Bob Gillam, Dave Fields, Frank Sterba, and Harold Leonard The two managers were Steve Mengler and John Baylor. The team completed the season with two ties, one win, and one loss. Coac In some respects this was a rather disappointing season. Although this was one of the largest seventh grades ever en- rolled at Abbott, there were only about thirty boys who actively participated in football. The poor record of no wins and four losses, however, should not be over-emphasized, as this group of boys showed considerable improvement through hard work and a good team spirit. We can look forward to better things to come during the remainder of their stay at Abbott School. , '60 Fuuback SEVENIH GRADE HHHBAH h Hulmes FIRST ROWeBob Katy, Garry Warren, ErI Runge, Bill Stall, Bill Gieske, John Dibb.

Fifteen of the members were eligible for awards. .39 m-daec-ew mF-ze-a WINNIE SPIJIHS The girls' gym classes, under the di- rection of Miss Sorby, have participated in a number of activities during the year. Some of the popular sports were hockey, basketball, modern dancing, volley ball, and softball. The seventh grade rhythms program was a feature of the Christmas cantata. In the Spring the classes enjoyed tennis and bowling. HHEKEY Field hockey is played by all classes in the fall. In seventh and eighth grades, the girls learn the fun- damentals of the game, and ninth graders are de- veloping the speed, agility, endurance, and coor- dination necessary for good hockey playing. Highly competitive games are played after school on our fulI-size hockey field. BASKETBAll We always look forward to the basketball season for the seventh graders are anxious to learn how to play the game, and the ninth graders are learning more of the rules and officiating tech- niques. lnter-class tournaments are held at the end of the season among the seventh, eighth, and ninth grade classes.

The interest and attendance of the boys was very good throughout the season At the end of a series of 7 games the Zephyrs were placed in the championship bracket for playoffs.

SEVENTH BHHDE BHSHETBHLL The forty-three seventh grade boys who reported for basket ball were split up into four teams which participated in the city basket ball conference. The fourteen teams in the 7th grade con- ference were split into two leagues with two Abbott teams being placed in each league. At the close of the regular schedule, the four top teams in each league entered the championship bracket and the other teams were placed in the lower bracket. Three of the four Abbott teams qualified for the championship bracket and made a very good account of themselves against strong opposition. Mr. Mades took charge of the coaching of the Panthers and Lions while Mr. Hulmes coached the Bears and Tigers. While no championships can be claimed by the Abbott teams, the steady improvement of the teams throughout the season was very en- couraging.
