Il .'l4ETIl ll A gil-45 Back row: Donavon Schlegel Vincent Scallon Keith Knoll, Jerry Thaden, Merlin Janssen Gordon Sietsema Gene Scallon, Kenneth Muller Don Johnson, Jack Groker, Eugene Bevlng. Front rows Mr. Engel, David Kaus, Lee Fisher, Glenn Boheman, Russell Richtsmeier, Darrell Dass, Joe Oppold, Darwin Wiarda, Darold Sprain, Mr. Bowen. Merlin Janssen, Glenn Boheman, Darrell Dass, Gene Scallon and Gordon Sietsema had the task of carrying the burden of Ackley's basketball season. Ackley played a lot of good ball for a young, inexperienced team. The lack of material proved to be the big factor in Ackley's unsuccessful season--one vic- tory and fourteen losses. Darrell Dass at 6' 3U was the tallest man on the squad. He favored pass- ing the ball instead of shooting, had a deadly long set shot for a center, and rebounded well under both baskets. His best game was against Eldora. Merlin Janssen was the blond forward who had lots of ability to score. His specialty of one hand push shots from far out helped Ackley along when the chips were down. Gene Scallon maintained a 7.2 point average for the season to lead all scorers. He proved himself a reliable ball handler who had plenty of speed to match. Glenn Boheman was the sophomore lad who was tough under both boards with his rebounding power. Glenn hit his scoring stride against La Porte City with a total of 18 points. Gordon Sietsema was the freshman guard who played like a veteran in every respect. His scoring punch and ball handling was a decisive factor at times when Ackley needed a boost. Keith Knoll proved to be a dependable substitute. His ball hawking and rebounding kept the Raiders rolling.
