After serving one year as junior
varsity coach, Mr. Hanks stepped into
the varsity position. Coach Hanks
brought with him a fine record of the
previous season. After coaching the
up and coming varsity players, he was
better equipped to serve as the varsity
coach. In his first season, Mr. Hanks
has retained the basketball rank of
the school by Winning the Pontiac
Tournament and the Hillsboro Tourn-

birds were able to finish third in one
of the State's toughest conferences.
Mr. Hanks is a good example of the
fine coaching staff of Alton High.

be sorely missed. Charles Glaeser, one
of the mainstays of last season, will be
remembered as an outstanding and
hard-working team member,
Last season's track squad was
made up of sophomores and juniors.
Only a few senior lettermen returned.
Lack of experienced runners greatly
hampered the squad's chances. The
Redbirds were strongest in the distance
events with milers Charles Kidwell,
Tom Monical, and Ronnie Dunbar.
Lack of experience, especially in the
short runs, proved to be too much to
This season the squad appears to
be of much better quality. There are
many promising sophomores, and last
