FGGTBALL ASIDE FROM the year 1928. when Abington was undefeated and unscored upon, eleven boys have never been welded into such a perfect unit as those that played throughout the 1937 season. Speed. power. stamina. and strategy-they had them all. Much credit should go to Head Coach Glenn R. Snodgrass. his assistant coaches. lirb and Seltzer, and Doctor Beale for keeping the team in such excellent shape that the same eleven boys started in every league game. For years, Lower Merion had proved a stumbling block, but this did not fazc the '37 team. They galloped past the astonished Merionites I5-0 and continued full blast until a tough little Radnor eleven combined with Old Man VVeather's best rain to set them back 20-13. From that defeat, the Ghosts rebounded to crush Cheltenham 46-0. All 1937 Abington rooters will long remember: Bill Bates, the greatest end Abington ever producedg Harvey Lcldy, tough tacklerg Dune Wuzxmz and Milqf Pcneazle, hard work- ing guardsg Bob Dorn and Bill Mooney, twin centers equally capable: Sam Clayton, 6 feet 5 inches of a taekler nobody could block: Bill Sullivan, hard-Fighting endman: George O'Brien, one of the greatest Maroon Held generals: Howzird Cmznifzglmm, a passing, run- ning, punting, line-bucking back extraordinaryg Mitchell Whltz1'nglzam, built for beautiful open Held runningg and Frank Zenzer, the boy who lived the phrase whit that line." 53 HCDCKEY Last fall's hockey team with Ethel Iohnson, Betsy McEwan, Gratha Zwart, Betty Brown, Beth Ferris, and Eva Zackey, forwards, Helen Weisser protecting the cageg and Mary Pfieifer, Betty Whitley, Marjorie Donavan, Madelyn Braccio, Carolyn Fritz, Marion Bisbee, guards, finished the season with three victories, two ties, and three defeats. After losing their first game to Doylestown, they came back with a victory over Olney, however, their luck did not hold, for Ienkintown defeated them. Abingtonls eleven then rebounded to defeat Hatboro and Upper Moreland. Having tied Upper Merion and Springfield, the girls fought a nerve-racking game with Cheltenham but lost by the close score of 2-1. SOCCER Although the soccer team closed its 1937 season rather unsuccessful in comparison with last year's record, their five ties kept them from a low position in suburban ranking. After being beaten at Haverford 4-I, the booters staged a comeback on the homefield by tying Haverford 0-0. In this game, the hackheld, consisting of goalie Donato, Hamlin and Michel on the second line of defense, and Captain Bitman, Worrall, and Clark, at halfback, showed championship caliber. Although lack of ex- perience handicapped the forward line, they played well in defeating Landsdowne and Berwyn. This forward line consisted of Reibsamen, the only experienced player, Curran, H. Kelly, Van Gaasbeek, and Reilly. The team was defeated twice by Lower Merion, and once by Upper Darby, Haverford, and Olney. 54 NWRESTLHQG With three veterans remaining from last year, the wrestling team was able to build up a rather good combination to represent the high school. They hnished the season with at .goo average, defeating Lower Merion 23-18, Lansdowne 25-6, and Haverford 19-12. Defeat came at the hands of Cheltenham zo-9, Upper Merion I9-14, and Upper Darby 17-14. In the District 1 P.l.A.A. championship meet, the Ghost grapplers tied with Lower Merion for third place. Harvey Leidy, undefeated, ended the season with the district heavyweight championship. Two others, Dick Crnuthamel at 125 lb. and Roy Zackey, IOS lb., were also undefeated. Zackey was runner-up in the championship meet. Norman Kelly, 135 lb., and Albert VVacker, 85 lb., both lost in the finals. GULF Composed of last year's championship players except for Tom Hynd- man, the golfers opened their season with a victory over Reading High School and, to follow up this triumph. defeated Berwyn by the perfect score of I5-0. The next victims were Landsdowne. who lost 14-1, and Lower Merion, who dropped two successive matches by one-sided scores. A second defeat of Berwyn, 142 - Vi, extended the string of victories to six. Coach E. A. Brunner has selected Tom Hyndman for number one playerg Natal Delia, two, Nick Penecale, Bill Coyle, Tony Falbo, Clem Undeck, Alfred Lizzio, and Ed Singley taking turns at number three, four, and five positions. 55 GIRLS, BASKETBALL After having coached girls' backetball for ten years at Abington, Miss Gertrude E. Herzog turned over her responsibilities to capable Miss Helen M. Baker of the English department, who guided the bas- keteers to one of the most successful seasons in years. Ending the season with a record of eight wins and three defeats, the girls won their most decisive victories over their keenest rivals, Springfield and Ienkintown, the latter for the first time in four years. Although mid-year graduation caused the loss of Beth Ferris and Betty Whitley, the reorganized team of Eva Zackey, Ethel Iohnson, Betty Brown, and Mary Reilly as forwards and Captain Medelyn Braccio, Marion Bright, and Carolyn Fritz, guards, continued to play outstanding basketball. BUYS' BASKETBALL After pulling through an unsuccessful season, the courtsmen sur- prised the suburban district by upsetting the previously undefeated Ienkintown team on the losers' floor. Drawing the hardest teams when the former suburban league was split up into two parts, the Maroons defeated Olney, Ienkintown, and Cheltenham, and lost to Lower Merion, Norristown, and Radnor, the Suburban I league champions, The two Mike Penecales and Schueneman did the major scoring, while Sullivan, O'Brien, and Cunningham handled the defense work. Valuable sub- stitutes included Kertis, O'Hara, and Bickel. Since this year's gradu- ation takes only M. C. Penecale and Sullivan, Coach Erb has encourag- ing prospects for the future. 56 I 1 GIRLS SWIMMING Last year's champions had to he satished with second place this season with four league victories and one defeat, Coatesville was the first team defeated, hut hecause of the illness oi' Marie Glazier, Upper Darby won by a close score. The victory over Haverford preceded triumphs over Norristown and Cheltenham in quick succession. ln L1 post-season meet with Audubon, the girls again came through. Pauline Godman, Ann Hablzegger. Marie Glazier, Agnes Reim. Edith Dinlocker, Helen Earle, Barbara VVoll, Anna Lerlerts. lane Fox, and lane Simon composed the team. BOYS' SWIMMING With inexperienced hut determined strokes. the boys' swimming team splashed their way to two victories out of seven meets. defeating Germantown Academy 39427 and Eddystone 35-24. Although George Stoner, champion diver, was graduated at mid-term, consistent point winners for the Maroons included Captain Summer Peirce and Boh Dippy, 220-yard freestyleg Blanc Ferrell, ioobyard freestyle: Harry Kelly. diverg and Christie Rau and Bill Clayton, hackstroke. The other var' sity swimmers were: Lester Leidy, Bob Delaney, and Bill Kistler. hreasr- strokeg lim Godman, Ioe McKee, Byron Colllesh, and Dick lingard, freestyle. In the District 1 P.I.A.A. meet, Kelly took third place in the diving and Rau third in backstroke. 57 GIRLS' TENNIS Hoping to retain last year's suburban tennis crown, the girls started practice late in the winter on an indoor court, and then moved to Bae- derwood as soon as weather permitted. Again Ethel Iohnson, fifth ranking Eastern States girl player, played first singles with Marion Bright holding second position, and Betsy McEwan, third. From among a promising group of candidates, Barbara F. Smith was selected by Miss Herzog to play fourth singles. Barbara Woll and Mary Ham- lin started as the doubles team, but were replaced by Evelyn -Gracey and Marion Hallinger. The girls began their campaign by defeating Rad- nor 3-2. Lansdowne was overwhelmed 5-0, and Upper Darby lost 3-2 after a long, gruelling match. BOYS' TENNIS The boys' suburban tennis league started off this year with teams more evenly matched than for the past few seasons. Four players on Abington's present squad played on the team that finished fifth last year. Benton Alquist, in his third year of competition, is this sea- son's lead-off man, followed by Douglas Collins, also in his third year. Don Parker has moved up to third, George Copeland holds fourth place, and Lester Leidy and Walter Tornkinson, two new players, make up the doubles team. After an encouraging 4-I victory over Radnor, the boys lost a close match to Lansdowne, 3-2, and bowed to Upper Darby, 4-I. 58 BASEKALL The baseball team opened its defense ot the suburban league crown on April zo with a I-O victory over Lower Merion. After this opening triumph, the boys lost to Simon Uratz 13-5 and Haverford 5-.1 but took their revenge on Bryn Athyn with a 6-2 victory. Norristown nosed the Abingtonians out in the sixth inning to win 3-2. Except for Iohn O'Hara at hrst base and Vllilliam Cousins at third, the team is composed ot veterans. Michael A. Penecale, Howard Cunningham, George Kertis, and Charles Fay reign in the pitcher's box with M. A. Penecale behind the plate. Howard Cunningham, Bill Sullivan, and Hank Keller take turns in covering second base and shortstop positions. George Oiljrien, Dick Carr. and Harvey Leitly are doing an excellent iob in left, center, and right held positions, respectively. TRACK The track enthusiasts, Linder their capable instructor Roland C. Ritchie, have their season well under way. Although the boys lost their First practice meet to Ambler 45-63, they made their best showing since they first competed against this school. In the county meet, the team placed fourth out of six entrants with a total of I4 points. At the Penn Relays, Abington placed fourth in its race. The veteran cincler- men consist ot Frank Zenzer, VVilliam Stahl, George Neilson, and Norman Kelly. These boys, aided by a large number of newcomers, hope for a good season although the team is weak in field competition. 59 CRCDSS-COUNTRY NEVER SINCE Coach Ronald C. Ritchie organized a cross-country team in the fall of 1935 have the Abington harriers suffered defeat in a dual meet. This year the team, led by Norman "Shipwreck" Kelly, sped through another success- ful season, defeating in turn Chester, Upper Darby, Ridley Township, Lansdale, and Ambler, Surprising the local sports fans, the Abington team of 1938 showed that it is possible for a team to come back, for, after taking a disappointing fourth place in the Suburban Championship meet, the team journeyed to the Eastern Regionals at Lafayette College, Easton, and, by defeating the very teams which had outrun the Maroons in the Suburban meet, sprinted to a First place. With reference to the sport which he has coached so successfully, Coach Ritchie says: "Cross-country, under proper guidance, is one of the best body-building activities of the present time. I sincerely hope that more boys, especially boys out for winter and spring sports, will use this fall activity to strengthen themselves for their particular sportf' 60 i""ll ll' RIEWIR 2.
