WAG- QIIIIIIIIIIIIMWZ-fz ge FLASHLIGI-IT 5Zl. . IIIIIlIlIIlIlL X L Mugs Basket Ball The first game of the season was played with Clyde. As the first games of the season us- ually end, we lost, due to the lack of practice and confidence. The game was full of clean playing on both sides which offset the defeat. ' The second team of the A. H. S. played the A. C. C. five, and won a victory over them. The game was very easy and all sixteen of our men were used. The third game was played with the Army team which was playing in the interest of re- cruiting. The game wasn't as easily won as the soldiers had anticipated, for our boys fought hard during the game and made their opponents work hard for all the points they got. Our boys made a trip to Potosi to play that bunch of corn-fed huskies and had a good time even if the game was lost. The A. H. S. team was playing against odds but showed excellent form despite this fact. A return game with Clyde was arranged and the consequence was that Clyde lost. This made the victories equal, and the tie had to be played off On the same day that the second game with Clyde was played another team of the A. H. S. players defeated a team from Caps. After Caps' weak spot was found, the victory was compara- tively easy. A game was arranged with Clyde to play off the tie between the two schools and the result was a victory for Clyde. Our boys fought hard but could not win. The Clyde team won fairly, and we do not begrudge them the victory, although it hurt us to lose the game. The second team of the A. H. S. again played the A. C. C. team and again defeated them. gfhe coach used a large part of the squad in this game, as there was at no time any danger of de- Cal. The Merkel five came down to Abilene with rooters galore to win from us, and they did win by a small margin of three points. Although our boys fought like demons the game was lost. At the end of the first half the score looked favorable for us, but the second half told a different story. , A. H. S. boys rode to Clyde for a final game with them and were defeated-in score. They are resolved to win next year. The final game of the season was played with the Tuscola High and lost by three points. The game was full of pep from the first whistle to the last. This ended what is considered as a very excellent season. Girlz Basket Ball 'l he first game of the season was played with North Park on February the second. The A. H. S. girls showed much pep and fight throughout the game but their lack of practice told on them and they were defeated in points but not in spirit. The A. H. S. girls played the Clyde High at Clyde in the second game of the season. The game was characterized by hard playing on both sides and individual stars were lacking as the whole team starred in the game. Much to the delight of the A. H. S. fans, we won. For the third game of the season, the Clyde girls came to Abilene with blood in their eyes to wipe away the stain of defeat that was left by our girls in the previous game. The plays were fast and furious and the whistle blew frequently. At the end of the allotted time the girls of the A. H. S. had added another 'victory to their string. Elrark Due to the early completion of this book, the track and baseball games were ommitted with the exception of the annual class track meet, the winner of which has the privilege of engraving the class name on the Campbell Trophy Cup. There was much interest shown in the contest, and rivalry ran high between the classes. The athletes were well matched and the championship swayed back and forth until the close of the last day of the meet. The Seniors finally won the meet with a total of forty-nine and a half points. The .luniors ran a close second with a total of forty-eight points. The Sophomores took third place and the Freshmen took fourth place. This is the third successive year that the Seniors have taken the meet. Who will get it next year? Let us watch, and wait, and see. up X Q2 fl' "et J g , .t lIIIIlIIIIlII Q6 jjfi 3 - ZIIIIIIIIIIII H . 'VX T 'Ck -,N
