Rowan The Albion college Britons, playing their second season under the direc- tion of Coach Del Anderson, chalked up a record of two wins and one tie against six losses during the 1949 campaign. Opening their nine-game season a week earlier than usual, the Britons smothered the Defiance Ohio I col- lege team, 30-7, on the turf at Alumni field. The Albion eleven then drew one of the toughest assignments of the year when they entertained the Wabash Cavemen from Crawfordsville, Ind. A see-saw battle ended in a 19-19 tie. The Britons took the longest road trip of the season the first week in October to Carroll col!ege. Waukesha, Wis., where they dropped the tilt 17-7. Opening MIAA grid warfare, the Britons went to Adrian and clashed with the Bulldogs, losing 26-7. The succeeding week, the Kalmazoo Horn- ets came to Alumni field for the Homecoming c ' ay game. They left with a 21 -7 victory. The Purple and Cold gridsters ac- counted for their second win by whipping the Olivet Comets, 12-6; on the last Saturday in October the Britons bowed to the Alma Scots, 14- 6. They closed 1 heir home season losing to Hope college, 21-6. In the finale of the year, the Hiibdale Dales won out 21 -7. Although the Albion team went victorless in MIAA competition, the Briton ' s Ed Madjeski was honored by being selected as a guard on the AM - Star first team.

Maas rry, Frost, Clark, Mohl, Allen, Forter The Britons wrote into the score books a record of 10 wins against 15 losses for the 1949- ' 50 basketball season ending the MIAA conference race in a three-way tie for third place and capturing the first MIAA round-robin tournament. Vince Sigren, who was co-winner of the tournament ' s most valuable player award, was chosen the most valuable player for the season by his teammates. Max Berry was elected honorary captain. In their seasonal excursions, the Britons did not fair too well. In their swing to the east, they downed Toronto university and lost to Buffalo State Teachers college. During the Christmas holidays and the Ohio road trip, Albion was credited with four losses; however, two of them by three points or less. The In- diana trip was none too successful for the Britons lost to Wabash and Tri-State. After dropping their first three MIAA games, the Britons came back to chalk up thei r initial league win over Hope. They followed it up with wins over Adrian and Hillsdale, and topped it off by handing the Kalamazoo Hornets their first and only league loss. They closed their court warfare by whipping Adrian fnr the second time.

Haas, Hagan nfelter, Davis, Van Schoi ck, Trombley Perkins. Brown, Briggs, Eggleston The Briton trackmen under the guidance of Coach Walter B. Sprandel won their fourth consecutive post-war track crown by downing Adrian in the MIAA track meet at Kalamazoo on May 20, 1949. The Britons lost only one meet out of eight during the outdoor season and that was to Adrian. However, in the league meet, Albion came back to score 76 Vz points to 56-1 3 for the second place Adrian. In the MIAA meet, the thinclads took six firsts and showed strong bal- ance in retaining their crown. Max Polley was a double winner for the Britons when he broke the tape in the 100 and 220-yard dash. Jerry Trombley won the quarter-mile and Ted Hagadone won the mile run. In the field events, John Haas took the disc title. Albion ' s other first came in the mile relay. Don Vandivort, Bill Shenefelt, Bill Van Schoick and Trombley were clocked in 3:30.4 to set a new MIAA mark for that event. The team elected Trombley as the most valuable Briton runner and also chose Polley to captain the team dur- ing the 1950 season. For the third consecutive year, Albion col- lege ' s cross country team annexed the MIAA cross country title, as Ted Hagadone success- fully defended his individual runner ' s title for the second straight year. The Britons in the last three years have dropped only one race each season, but in MIAA league competition, the Albion runners ' records remain clean. Albion opened its season at the University of Illinois, Chicago branch, and won 20-35. Running at Bowling Green university the Britons dropped their only race of the year 34-23. Against MIAA foes, the Purple-and-Cold thin- clads downed Adrian, 20-43, and Kalamazoo, 15-48. In a tri-angular race, the Britons totaled 26 points to best Central Michigan college, who had 37, and Toledo university with 70 points. Coach Dale Sprankle ' s charges easily bypassed Alma 15-50 and ended their dual meets topp- ling Hope 17-44. The Britons concluded their season running in the Central Collegiate Cross Country race at Ypsilanti. Here Hagadone placed twenty- first in a field of over a hundred runners and the Albion team ninth against such powers as Notre Dame, Purdue and Michigan State.

Mr. Ande First row: Joranko, Wilcox. Crostic. Scofield, Ballard, Berry, Hoover, Clendenning Coach Del Anderson ' s baseball team finished in second pl ace over the shortened MIAA 1948 league season. The Britons ' record of three wins against two losses in league play placed them behind only Hillsdale who did not lose an MIAA game. Adrian, Alma and Hope finished in a three- way tie for third place with records of two wins and three losses. Kala- mazoo was the cellar club and won only one game in five league starts. The championship play-offs were scheduled for May 19 at Kalamazoo with the four top teams competing. Hope lost the drawing to break the three-way tie and thus Hillsdale was to have played Adrian and Albion was to meet Alma. The winners and losers were scheduled to meet but rain can- celled all four games and it was de- cided by the league officials to count the pre-play-off standings for the all-sports points. The Albion team thus finished its season with a record of 1 1 wins in 14 starts. Fred McKimball and Clark Wurm were the Britons ' leading pitchers while Max Berry, Marv Cros- tic and Bill Scofield lead the batsmen. The golf and tennis teams of Albion college each had successful seasons during 1949. Under Coach E. Maynard Aris the golfers finished the year with a record of nine wins and two losses. The tennis team led by Mr. Ralph M. Powers ended the year with an eight wins against four losses record. The golfers lost only one MIAA match and thus finished the season in a three-way tie for first place with Alma and Hillsdale. In the league tournament which counts 50 per- cent of the championship, the Britons held a three stroke edge after the first 18 holes. Alma and Hillsdale followed the Britons in that order. On the second round Albion slipped to third place and lost the championship to Alma by a seven-stroke margin. The tennis team went into the tournament in third place and slipped a position during the field-day play. Alma, by winning two important matches from the Britons on the last day of the tournament, edged by the Britons to finish in third position behind Kalamazoo and Hope. In the golf tournament, freshman Chuck Mohl was the medal winner for the Britons with a 76-81 — 157. Mohl was nominated as the most valuable man on the Albion team for his play throughout the season. Bill Casteel won the same honor from the tennis team. French, Hadden, Kasler, Calbreath, Wagner, Mr. An Second row: Mr. Powers, Kehe, Fiske.
