Cross Country For the first time in several years Alton High has again entered cross country competition. Cross country was added to the school's sports calendar in an effort to condition basketball players and de- velop distance men for track. Completing the year's schedule for five cross- ccuntry meets the Alton Harriers ran up a record of a first, a third, two fourths, and an eighth. Since this is the first year that Alton High athletes have participated in this sport, their record is a reasonably good one. Coach Halt's hill and dale team consists of Leslie Hale, lack Hill, Dick Phelps, Richard Mc- Ferrin, and Roland Banks. From this group only lack Hill will graduate, indicating that Alton High can expect a good team of two-milers for next fall. Golf Golf, like cross-country is another one of the newer sports at Alton High. Last year's golf team entered in two main meets. The district golf meet in Belleville was won by the Redbirds, which gave them an opportunity to go to Champaign for the State meets. Larry Beckert, Bill Malson and the Lawson brothers, Ken and Ron, returned from the Belleville district meet with a first place plaque. ln taking first place, the team had a low of 340. VVhen the team traveled to the State Tourna- ment they failed to qualify for the' final rounds. Cross Country: Upper Group: Iack Hill, Leslie Hale, Roland Banks, Richard McFerrin, Dick Phelps. Golf Team: Lower Group: Larry Beckett, Ronnie Lawson, Bill Maison, and Ed Hummel,
