Andrew Lewis o—Lynchburg 12 After a week of rest, the Wolverines went to the Hill City to meet the Glass eleven. This big, husky team, led by its All-State Captain Otey Merriwether, pushed across two markers to top the Salem squad. This was a very hard-plaved game with both sides doing great offensive and defensive work. The power and weight of the Hill- toppers told on the light Wolverines who put up a mag¬ nificent battle against the Lynchburg aggregation. Andrew Lewis 6—Danville 6 This was the first and only game of the year in which Andrew Lewis was equal in weight to her opponents. Salem started off well and played better football all the way through than George Washington High did. The first half saw Salem take the lead, but after the rest period, the Danville squad connected with a pass which made the tying score. This wound up a season that had taught the players much and that they had enjoyed to the utmost. (All the boys played well in these games and had upheld the name of Andrew Lewis wherever they played.) [ 95 ]

Andrew Lewis 7—Galax o In the opening game of the 1945 football season the Wolverines were pushed hard to top a heavier Galax eleven. Play¬ ing on even terms during the greater part of the contest, it was a last quarter touchdown by Andrew Lewis which gave Salem the victory. This was a good test for the light and inexperienced team which was to represent Andrew Lewis this year and the showing made was good indeed. Andrew Lewis 44—Bedford 6 The Bedford aggregation was easily outclassed in this tilt. Although heavier, the Otters were no match for the fast¬ scoring boys from Andrew Lewis. Markers were pushed across from all over the field and to lead the scoring parade, Dickie Bunting, the only hold-over from last year’s squad, personally accounted for twenty-six points (during the fray). The experience gained in this game helped as the season progressed, for much stiffer opposition would be met from other schools on the schedule. Andrew Lewis 12—William Byrd 7 Played in a drenching rain and featured by many slips and fumbles, the Blue and White triumphed over the heavier boys from Vinton in the third game of the season. The two teams were very evenly matched and it was a sparkling run- back of an intercepted pass by Vance Cannaday which decided the outcome. The boys played good offensive and defensive ball and the spectators were very well pleased with their showing. Andrew Lewis o—William Fleming 14 Coming back from the past year’s defeat at the hands of Andrew Lewis, the Colonels gained .the decision over an outweighed and less experienced ball club from Salem. Playing what was easily their best game of the year, the Wolverines went down fighting and gained praise from all sides for the great battle they put up. This was the first setback for Salem, but the game was hard-fought and everyone had given a good account of himself and his school on the field. Andrew Lewis 13—Charlottesville 14 Traveling to Charlottesville for the first daylight game of the year, the Blue and White led its opponents in all but the scoring column. The squad from Lane High was definitely outplayed and the score does not tell the true story of the contest. Keeping its opponents on the defensive most of the time, Andrew Lewis played hard and well. This was a hard loss to take, but all the boys had done their best and each deserved praise. Andrew Lewis o—Jefferson 25 Jefferson High won the annual football tilt from Salem by sheer power and experience. The Wolverines held fast when pushed close to their goal, but allowed the Magicians to cross the last stripe from far out. Andrew Lewis never threatened seriously, although she did push fairly deep into Roanoke territory where Jefferson would then take over the ball. The team tried hard, but could not overcome the power and strength of the Roanoke eleven. I 94 1

BASKETBALL Guy Spruhan. Coach Keith Edmunds. Captain Winning eight games and dropping six—the Andrew Lewis five had a good season. The Wolverines earned second place in the city-county games and placed two men on the All City- County squad. With all of the boys playing excellent ball, Andrew Lewis was ably represented on the hardwood during the 1945-1946 basketball season. Taking the first four games, the Blue and White team was off to a very good start, but dropped its first game to Hampton in a contest that was undecided until the final whistle. In the win column, Salem twice defeated the two Class “B” teams of the county, William Fleming and William Byrd. Along with these, the Alumni, Covington and Radford fell prey to the Wolverines, with Danville losing the decision in Salem. Jefferson High, runners-up in state competition, tapped Andrew Lewis twice with Glass High of Lynchburg doing the same. Hampton won from Salem, also, as did Danville when the team traveled there. Led by the two hold-overs from last year, Team Captain Charlie Webber and Dickie Bunting, and paced in the point-getting department by Keith Edmunds, the Wolverines did a very good job on the court. Ballard Wood, Jimmie Robertson, and Donald Young shared in the work with James Wilbourne, Brewster Robertson and George St. John adding much to the game. We hope to see most of the boys back next year to play the game for Salem, and to those leaving, we extend our best wishes for the futui re.
