FORTY-FIVE Football Season Andrew Lewis 25—Lynchburg 8 After their two defeats, the Wolverines came back and easily defeated a heavy Lynchburg team. Dave Miller scored two touchdowns—one on a pass and the other on an end-around play. Frank Shelor scored on another end-around, and Guy Spruhan ran the fourth touchdown over. Lynch¬ burg scored on a long pass and a safety but were never really in the game as the Lewis line was vastly superior to the Hilltoppers. Andrew Lewis o—Danville 14 This was another close, hard-fought game. George Washington, who tied for the State Championship, scored one touchdown in each half while Salem’s greatest threat was in the second quarter. They drove deep into Danville territory, but a pass interception, as the half was ending, stopped the Wolverines. This was the last game at Andrew Lewis for about twelve of the players. Although they would have liked to win, they had nothing to be ashamed of in the out¬ come.

THE PIONEER Football Season Andrew Lewis o—Portsmouth 6 When the Wolverines went on the Portsmouth field for this game, they were clearly the under¬ dogs; but when they came off, they had won a moral victory. Afost of the playing was in mid- field or better, and several times Salem drove deep into Woodrow Wilson territory only to lose the ball on downs or pass interceptions. Ports¬ mouth scored in the first half on a series of long runs; but after this, the game turned into a de¬ fensive battle. The entire team, especially Dave Miller and Spruhan looked great during this game which was easily the hardest fought and best game Salem played all year. Andrew Lewis 7—Jefferson 21 The score of this game tells the story. Salem fought hard, but Roanoke’s power and reserves were too much for the Wolverines. Andrew Lewis used all their plays and ability but could only score on a screen pass from Guy Spruhan to Bill Shaw, who ran about fifty yards for the touch¬ down. Salem completed some other nice passes but could not threaten Jefferson too seriously while sheer magician manpower rolled to three touchdowns. Andrew Lewis played good ball, but it was the same old story of too much Roanoke experience and reserve strength for the Wolve¬ rines. Guy Spruhan Back Ira Feazell Tackle Bill Kinzie Tackle H. R.

THE PIONEER Basket Ball " Ty " Miller “Gus” Spruhan ' Beetle” Shaw The 1945 Basket Ball season was the most successful one a Salem team has had in many years. Andrew Lewis won twelve games and lost only three during the regular season but were defeated in the state Class A semi-finals at Alexandria—35-30. The other losses were to Army reservists at V. M. I., George Washington High of Dan¬ ville, and Thomas Jefferson of Richmond. However, all of these losses were away from home and each of these teams was soundly defeated in Salem. Led in scoring by Dave Miller with 273 points and Guy Spruhan with 227, the high scoring Wolverines, who set a new Salem record with 602 points, won both the Class A Western District and the Roanoke City-County Championships. The only loss in district games was a very close 36-35 defeat in Danville. However, the Danville team was easily beaten in a return game 62-44 while both Roanoke and Lynchburg were defeated twice. The City-County Championship was easier to win as Jefferson was defeated twice, and William Byrd and William Fleming were both easy prey for the high-stepping Wolverines. In the game at Vinton, Andrew Lewis had a field day and ran up their largest score of the season, winning 72-19. The climax of the season was the second Roanoke game which decided the District Championship. Before the largest crowd ever to see a game in the Lewis gym, the Wolverines defeated the Jeffs 45-30 and proved that their previous victory in Roanoke had not been a mistake. 4 66
