ANDREW LEWIS GIRLS 1. Rachel Light— Forward —Rachel came to us this year from Back Creek, and we know that their loss was our gain. She is our best forward and was awarded a place on the All-County Team. Rachel is a Junior and we hope she will be back next year playing for Andrew Lewis. 2. Mary Elizabeth Hale— Captain-Guard — Andrew Lewis will lose one of the best players by graduation this year. Mary Elizabeth is a grand sport, dependable, in fact, everything a good cap¬ tain must be to her team. We’re sorry to see her go and wish her the best of luck. 3. Mary Agnes Plybon— Forward —Although this is Mary’s first year out for varsity, she played an outstanding game. During the season she showed more improvement than any other player on the team. Mary will be back next year winning more honors for Andrew Lewis. 4. Jean Ann Wilfong— Center-Side Center — Although Jean Ann was originally a side center she played almost every position on the team, and did it well. She is one of our best and most depend¬ able players. Jean Ann made the All-County Team and played an excellent game. Great things are expected of her next year. 5. Ruby Horne— Side Center — Ruby is the smallest player on the team, but that isn’t a liability by any means. Greased lightning would be the best thing to describe her. Good luck next year, Ruby! 6. Mary Lofland— Forward — Although she was smaller than most of the girls who guarded her she played a good game. Mary did her part in scoring and put up a good defense. The team will lose a good sport and one of its best players through Mary’s graduation. 7. Eleanor Waddell— Guard —Eleanor is an¬ other of our players who will graduate this year. She is one of our best and most dependable guards. We’ll miss you next year, Eleanor. 8. Eileen Sale— Guard — Although Sale didn’t see much action this year, she could always be depended upon to do her part; Andrew Lewis will lose a fine sport by her graduating. 9. Frances Harrison— Center — Here’s to the girl who held down the pivot position of the team so capably. Frances is a good center; also a good side center, forward, and guard. She, too. is graduat¬ ing this year. 10. Myra Bunting — Manager —Myra has been our manager for two years, and we can but echo what was said about her last year. She is patient, dependable, and thoughtful. Thanks, Mymie, for all your help.

Hale W. Wilson F. Gearheart O. Hall J. T. Agee W. Stuart Faced with the problem of no field and lack of material on the mound, Coach Denton started the task of building a ball team on the little field at the side of the school. After much hard practice he finally brought forth his team. But all our hopes were shattered about six days before the first game. Coach Denton was taken ill and removed to the hospital. Then we suddenly remembered Mr. Jim Peters, the football star from Wake Forest. Mr. Peters gladly consented to step in and relieve us of our misfortune. He started the boys back to the grind after losing only one day of practice. The schedule calls for a number of games, many of which will be played away from home due to the fact that our field will not be ready until the middle of the season. Now as The Pioneer goes to press, we wish to thank Mr. Peters and the boys on the ball diamond for showing their respect and loyalty in carrying on in the absence of Coach Denton. We feel sure that he will be back soon to help finish the season with Andrew Lewis on top where she always has been.
