A. L., 47— William Byrd, 39 The Wolverines met a much scrappier group of William Byrd Terriers than they had in their first meeting with them. The game was a nip and tuck affair, and it wasn’t until that very decisive fourth quarter that the winning points were pushed through the basket. The first period ended 7-7, but at intermission the score read 19-17 for the Wolverines. Then both teams settled down to work, but it was the Wolverines who finally mustered the power for the final winning markers to make the final score read 47-39. Shelor was the sharp-shooter with 19; Firebaugh of Byrd came next with 16; and Peters of the Wolverines was third with 10. A. L., 42—Jefferson, 55 The Wolverines threw a scare into the mighty Jefferson Magicians in a tight game played in the Wolverine gym, although the Magicians did win 55-42. The Wolverines started out fast and the first quarter ended 10-10. Then the Jeffs slowly pulled away to a half-time score of 30-21; but the Wolverines weren’t out of the game yet. They mustered all the strength possible, but it wasn’t enough to subdue the Jeffs who pulled away to a close 55-42 victory. Rudy Lacy of Jefferson was undisputedly high man with 36; Shelor was runner-up with 12; and Thompson and Peters followed with each collecting 10. A. L., 53— William Fleming, 54 This was a game filled with everything that a real basketball game should have. The Colonels of William Fleming for the second time this season won a heartbreaker from the Wolverines by the score of 54-53. The first quarter found Fleming ahead 14-10, but the Wolverines fought back to a 28-25 advantage at intermission. From this time the contest continued to gain speed and it wasn’t until the last seconds that the winner became apparent. James Saul of Fleming walked off with top scoring honors with 19. Shelor and Peters followed with 16 each. A. L., 39—V. P. I. Freshmen, 59 The Wolverines closed out their season by dropping a 59-34 decision to the Freshmen of V. P. I. The Freshmen de¬ veloped a 31-16 half-time lead and never got into trouble. Charles Eaton of V. P. I. took top honors with 15. Thompson paced the Wolverines with 13 and Shelor followed with 11.

Basketball team got off to a good start this year and continued with a very successful season under the excellent supervision of Coach Copenhaver. We. the team, lost only one out of six games, this to Jefferson; but whipping them in the second meeting evened that up. Although a lot of mistakes in playing were made, the boys played as a team and finished with a four game winning streak. 4. L.38—Fleming. 4, L.36—Jefferson A. L.52—Byrd. . . A. L.45—Jefferson A.

GIRLS ' SPORTS What is Physical Education? It is a way of education through activities which are selected and carried on with full regard to value in human growth, development, and behavior. It is a phase of the total educational program that aims for the same general goal that gives purpose to all the other learning experiences of the school—the well-rounded development of all students as responsible citizens in our democratic society. Physical Education provides a wealth of experience which, along with other opportunities in the curriculum, are particularly important in helping each student to develop physical efficiency, useful skills, and to enjoy wholesome recrea¬ tion. It helps people to satisfy age-old needs, both physical and social. The girls’ Physical Education classes started their work early this year. This quotation from the September 16, 1949, edition of the Andrew Lewis News will give you an example of this: “The Odds and Evens are at it again. Monday afternoon, immediately after school, Miss Phyllis Watts and Mrs. Betty Jo Simpson (our new assistant gym teacher) started organizing the volleyball teams of 1949.” Perhaps you are wondering what we mean by the Odds and Evens. For the past two years the girls at Andrew Lewis have been divided into these two teams. The girls who graduate in an odd year are on the Odd team; those who graduate in an even year are on the Even team. These teams compete against each other in all of the major sports. The winning team in each sport receives ten points toward the Color-Cup, a trophy awarded each year to the team receiving the most points in after-school games. The year was started off with volleyball and then came her sister, basketball. Both sports were actively participated in and enjoyed by all. Next came tennis and archery. These classes were conducted both during and after school. Many of the girls loved archery, but we understand most of them got quite bruised up when first learning the techniques. Other popular members of the “Sports” family are badminton, softball, fieldball and soccer. The quieter members of the family, shuffleboard and checkers, don’t seem to want for friends either. It was the purpose of the girls’ Physical Education Department to develop poise and to set up ideals, attitudes, habits, and standards of living which will be beneficial to students as individuals and leaders. We think this has been a very successful year in the realm of girls’ sports due to the capable leadership of our Physical Ed “professors,” Miss Watts and Mrs. Simpson. 4 129 ) NINETEEN FIFTY
