SGPHOMORE TEAM WINS GILLESPIE TOURNEY
Sophomore basketball this season gave evidence
that basketball at Alton High is on an upward swing
The tall, fast team has proved its strength by
winning 17 of their 23 games. They lost to Collins-
ville, Wcod River, Gillespie, Granite City, East Side
and Roxana. Scoring a total of 1,320 points. this team
has left their opponents who scored 943 points, far
behind them in totals,
In a somewhat similar manner to the varsity
team, this sophomore crew could have won three
more of the 6 games they lost if the games could
have been called at the half. They seem to lack the
ability to withstand the pressure that comes in the
Don Utley holds the honor of out-scoring his
teammates, pounding the nets for 268 points. Four
other boys scored over 150 points in the season's
Climaxing the season the sophomores came home
with two trophies from the 16-team Gillespie Fresh-
man-Sophomore Basketball Tournament. Alton won
easily their first two games over Carlinville 65-17,
and Gillespie 62-48.
The last two games toughened up a bit, but
they moved past Edwardsville 57-45 and then went
into the final against Hillsboro.
Edwardsville led at the half 28-28, but Alton
with the help of Eddie Hill, who scored 18 points,
moved on to win.
Ironically the sophomores ended their season by
defeating the same team they beat in the opening
game of the season - Hillsboro. This victory en-
abled the Iunior Birds to capture the tournament
and bring home two trophies.
A combination of throws by Rabbit lun and
Wayne Inlow spelled victory in. the "sudden death"
second overtime 66-64.

Alton Redbirds Break
The most amazing record of all 51-52 Allen High
sports was established last season by the Redbifd base-
ball squad. Only an eight-run first inning at Tom Connor
field in Peoria against Pekin kept Alton from coming home
as Illinois' number 1 prep baseball team.
Although the Redbirds won 19 games and lost only
two. they were unable to capture the Southwestern crown.
Battling all the way, Alton fought its way through the
district and sectional, right up to the State. Fine pitching
performances were turned in all season. by Mille Farley,
Dan Pelhank, Iohn Ward', and Carl lones.
In the heartbreaking final game 3,500 fans saw the
Redbirds go down 11-5 to the Pekin Chinks. In the first
game of the State Tournament against LaSz1l'e-vPeru the
Birds established 4 new state records:
l. Most runs by a team in one inning, tlll
2, Most hits in one game H75 fcr the most bases. 1291
3, Most runs by a team in one game. tl6l
4. Largest winning margin. U61
Graduation has taken a large number of last year's
squad, especially from the pitching staff. If these openings
can be filled this season, perhaps our number 2 ranking
ball club will be No, 1.
