1' f if 4 -. 9 BASEBALL Repeating their performance of 1936, the Leopard baseball team came through a hard regular schedule and a championship playoff series to win their second city base- ball championship in a row. The Leopards, coached by W. P. Durrett, led by Captain G. W. Chandler, and with a "never say die spirit," made the grade when the situation looked the darkest. The 1937 team was the hardest fighting and hardest hitting club to represent Adamson in many years. The moundstaff was composed of the three ace pitchers in the city, Lou "Lefty" Goldman, Woodrow "Chuck" Hunt, and E. Averea. Ray Niblo, catcherg Doug Rawlins, first baseg George Phillips, second baseg Captain G. W. Chandler, short stopg and George Patterson, third baseg hustlers to the last man, made up an infield that could not be beaten. The big bats of Elmer Durrett, Pete Layden, and W. L. Patrick, outfielders, played a prominent part in bringing the city championship to Adamson. As the Oak goes to press the Leopards are favored in the State playoff. Page Om: Hundred Twenty-Eight

JAMES CHRISTE Christe, with his 6' SH and remarkable work in getting rebounds kept the Leopards in many a ball game. "Moose-nose" con- trolled the tip off in every game, and was unanimously chosen for the center post on the "All Cityv team. 1 NORMAN "DUKE" WATSON Captain Watson playing his second year with the Leopards showed plenty of ability to hit the basket. His leadership was without a doubt one of the contrib- uting factors in the success of the team. G. W. CHANDLER Chandler was the fastest man on the Squad, and seemed to be everywhere on the floor at once. G. W. was unusually adept getting in the open, and the opposi- tion were--hard-V pressed to find someone that could keep up with him. t Q ROBERT HUNTER Robert well kept up the pace set for him by his brother Clifton on the '36 team.
