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
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.
