It has been your untiring effort and hard work that have developed that winning spirit so essential in this modern world. Seniors, Jimmy, Jesse, Jerry, Bobby, Luther, “Dopey”, John C. and John H., you have been a splendid group to work with. Thanks and best of luck in the future. To the ones who will return next year, good luck and hard work for another good season. SCHEDULE A. L. 34—Newport News A. L. 73—Alumni. A. L. 66—Narrows. A. L. 38—E. C. Glass. . . A. L. 43—Wm.

Even gym classes can have their dreary days. These students in Mrs. Patsel’s Sixth period gym class try hard to answer all the questions on their six weeks’ test. All eyes are on the ball as the team in possession watches anxiously hoping they will win a point. All attention is on the serving corner during a practice of the Evens Volleyball team. The Evens work hard in order to win the Volleyball Tournament, which is played between the Odds and Evens. Girls in the physical education classes at Andrew Lewis learn many things. These girls practice forward rolls as they become skilled in tumbling. The rest of the class await their turn. This ball is the busiest thing on the field as it is kicked back and forth between the two teams, during an exciting soccer game. Miss Martin’s classes play soccer after the correct techniques have been demonstrated. These girls are practicing the correct method of serving a birdie in badminton. This is one of the many things the girls learn in physical education. During the spring session, the girls in the gym classes practice the correct techniques of archery. Here Cynthia Butts, Carol Bowden, Carol Matthews, Nancy Donaldson, and Shelby Lipps carefully sight their target. Modern, ballet, and tap dancing are taught the girls in Mrs. Patsel’s gym classes. Here the girls run through the pliesse of ballet. Shuffleboard, like any other sport, requires practice. Carol Moore, Cynthia Butts, Carol Mathews, Nancy Donaldson, Shelby Lipps, Carol Bowden, and Sally Rife practice during their physical education class. 4 . 86 }

The ball seems to be floating away as John Holliday and Jefferson’s Rosenbaum battle to reach it. Glenn Parr looks as if he is going to dive for it as A. L. takes command in their brilliant victory over Jefferson. A Glass player attempts a field goal but Glenn Parr knocks it down. Jerry Frank takes advantage of the toss over the George Washington players and tips it to a teammate. Though the team of ’54 did not quite live up to its pre-season expectations, the Wolver¬ ines played several outstanding games during the season. Among these was a 76-61 victory over our arch-rival Jefferson, which started a winning streak that extended through half the season. Then hard luck seemed to hit our team and we dropped four of our last six games, among these a 62-61 heartbreaker to Fleming that cost us the City-County championship or even a tie for the honor. Two other games of these last six were nip and tuck affairs also. These were a 38-33 loss to Covington and 39-35 defeat by Danville. Both of these games were decided in the last few minutes of play. The whole team deserves credit for its efforts this year. Every boy tried his best each game. Most of the team will graduate this spring. Leaving school this June will be Captain Jim Candler, Jesse Chapman, Jerry Frank, Bobby Flinchum, Luther Garrett, Billy Jo Johnson, and John Cannaday. Back next year to lead the blue and white will be Glenn Parr, Verl Mershon, Hugh Garst, Penn Whitescarver and Maurice Hancock, who will try to fill the shoes of the departing seniors. We wish to praise Coach Harless for his fine coaching and sportsmanship. Everybody tries to get hold of the ball as it bounces from hand to hand during the Glass game. At half-time, the cheerleaders take time out to pose for our photographer. Even the crowd gets into this game! During the George Washington game, the referee found it hard to distinguish the players from the spectators.
