THE PIONEER A Resume of Baseball Year after year Andrew Lewis High has had a winning baseball team. These crack “nines” have never received their justifiable plaudits in this yearbook, because it always went to the press before the season had started. So The Pioneer, standing for under-grads and grads alike, takes this opportunity to pay a tribute to Coach Denton and his long line of excellent ball clubs. Delving into the records of the Wolverine “sluggers,” we offer these statistics, which demonstrate the capability of Salem ball players and of Mr. Denton. Last year a total of 14 games were played; only two games were lost. During the years from 1932-1935, 63 out of the 72 games played were won by the Wolverine “sluggers.” In 1928 and 1929, “Ducky’s” charges, led by the Crosswhite battery, were the State Champions, and other Lewis teams would have been, had not the title been destroyed by State officials. We point with pride to the record of our baseball teams, and we know that the success of these teams is due, in no small way, to Mr. Denton, who, regardless of the scarcity of material, has always produced a winning team.

of 193 7 Resume of Girls’ Basket Ball T HE Girls ' Varsity Basket Ball team completed its fourth successful session with the record of one defeat and one tie out of fourteen games. They were the county champions for their fourth year. There were three members of the team who w T ere placed on the All-County team, two receiving positions on the first team, and one on the second. The team scored 309 points to 259 for their opponents. High scorers for the season were Colleen Sanford, with the total of 149 points, and Beulah Grant runner-up, with a total of 117 points. Andrew Lewis will lose one of her best teams this year, for all six of the players graduate. We, of Andrew Lewis, wish success to each member of the team for her excellent sportsman¬ ship and teamwork. Varsity Beulah Grant Forward —117. All-County team, ’35-’36. Beulah has shown real sportsmanship during her three years on the Lewis court, and her loss will be greatly noticed. Edythe Davis Side Center. We, of A. L. H., hope that Edythe may meet through life with a great success like that which she has attained getting around on the hardwood. Colleen Sanford Forward —-149. Colleen has demonstrated remarkable prowess in her keenness of eye for the basket. All her friends and admirers will miss her greatly. Elizabeth Higginbotham Forward—Jump Center. Jump center on All-County team, ’36- ' 37. Elizabeth has proved her ability as a player in two import¬ ant positions and greatly deserves all the credit she receives. Nancy Pierpont Jump Center. Nancy has proved the age- old saying—A clear head is a great benefit to a team. Margaret Parker Guard and Captain. Guard on All-County team, ’36-’37. “Lefty” has proved that a good sport is something that every team needs and we athletes, as well as spectators, wish her a successful future. Caroline Maxwell Guard. Guard on second All-County team, ' 36-’37. That which Caroline lacks in height she makes up in her ability as a player. We are sure that she will continue her success to a higher goal. Junior Varsity and Subs Guards Centers Forwards J. Hudgins H. Grubb J. Maxwell E. J. Doughman N. White (J. C.) J. A. WlLFONG (S. C.)

Under the supervision of Asbury Maury and of Coach Denton the team developed rapidly and has finished the season with a creditable record. Four meets were held; the Wolverines were victorious in two of these; the other two were lost by scanty margins. The County Meet was decisively won by Andrew Lewis. Outstanding among the Track-performers were Johnson with 64 y 2 points; Hurdle with 30 points; Keith and Lee with 24 points each; Ednie with 21 points; and Spiggle and McGhee with 16 points each. Next year, with such a firm foundation laid, Andrew Lewis should have a track team that should rank among the state’s best. 1 71 1
