Losing Trying . . . Winning . . . Trying First Row, Left to Right; Kenny Norton, Hugh Gorst, Donald Maxey, Paul Bayse, Arnold Barr. Second Row: Penn Whitescarver, Maurice Hancock, Larry Desper, Ashton Lough. Third Row; Paul Henson, Jim Brightwell, Glenn Parr, David Ames, Verl Mershon, Captain. The Wolverines opened the ’55 season with a win over Halifax of South Boston; the final tally was 70-55. After a loss to the Typhoons of New¬ port News they entered the winning column again by beating the Alumni. The next two games were losses to our city rivals, Fleming and Jefferson. Center Glenn Parr was high scorer for Andrew Lewis with 22 points in a win over Byrd. In the next contest George Washing¬ ton of Danville turned back the Lewis quintet. Lewis next romped over the Cougars of Coving¬ ton with Verl Mershon high with 17 points and Desper and Parr each getting 13 points. A. L. then whipped the Indians of Blacksburg. After that, three of the next four games were losses to Fleming, Glass, and Jefferson. We won the Byrd game 61-49 and the Covington game 54-30. After a loss to Halifax, we won the last three games with “sudden death’’ period. Leaving Mr. Harless’ team this year will be Verl Mershon, the past captain, Glenn Parr, Hugh Garst, Jim Brightwell, Penn Whitescarver, and Maurice Hancock. The Wolverines won ten games and lost nine games this season; this was doing exceptionally well considering the inexperienced team that opened with Halifax. “Greatness need not be described in short words or long ones, In many words or in few. If a man has it, you’ll know; In the competition of sports a person’s actions will speak. If he can be last man in, and not be bitter, If, as a winner, he can cheer the loser, and as a loser, congratulate the winner sincerely, Then, he has won the right to be called vic¬ torious, even in defeat.’’ Coach Harless 4 77
