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.

Glenn Parr and a Glass player leap high in order to get the benefit of the toss while Luther Garrett, and Verl Mershon wait anxiously for the tip. Alert eyes follow the ball as the referee tosses it into the air. Luther Garrett knocks the ball away from Danville as Jimmy Candler runs down the court for a pass. An excited crowd cheers the home team in a basketball game between Andrew Lewis and Danville. J. W. Chapman takes a rebound from the board and looks for someone to pass to. During the George Washington game, basketball turns into a free-for- all. Jesse Chapman retains the ball as Jimmy Candler struggles to his feet. { 89 }■
