The opening of fhe baskefball season I947-48 was greefed wifh
enfhusiasm by fhe sfudenfs of Arnold College. Approximafely one hun-
dred eager baskefball players were on hand for fhe screening fesfs.
H' was fhe difficulf faslc of our new coach, Mr. Dwighf Burr, fo decide
who were 'I'he oufsfanding afhlefes and who were nof.
Affer fhe smoke had cleared, we found fhe following boys compos-
ing fhe feam for dear old Arnold:
Sawyer, Capfaing Brown, Ryan, Korszybslci, Amafo, Keefe, Sfafhis,
Morrow, Saplco, Richiedei, Gosfyla, Hannigan, Kul, DeLuca, Mariano,
Wifh fhe excepfion of Kul and DeLuca, who are iuniors, fhe re-
mainder of fhe squad was composed of freshmen and sophomores.
Thus, affer pracfice and more pracfice, fhe Arnold squad mer fheir
firsf opponenf, Siena College. This feam was rafed as one of fhe beffer
quinfefs in fhe nafion. The Terriers surprised fhe Albany crowd by giving
favored Siena a genuine scare.

Af fhe fime fhe Yearbook wenf fo press fhe Terrier diamond array
was enjoying a fine six and fwo record. According fo Coach Ray
Sfoviak a "preffy good season" is expecfed and his prophecy seems
fo be well founded in fhaf fhe feam's hiffing is improving and fhe
excepfionally fine mound sfaff can hold ifs own againsf mosf comers.
In fhe eighf games fo dafe only fwo of fhe sfarfing fwirlers have
been removed which indicafes fhaf Arnold is "forfunafe in having
a good mound sfaff." Claude Phillipps, Mike Hannigan, Ted Scribner,
Bob Shambreskis, and Bill Kelley form fhe backbone of fhe mound corps.
Phillipps and Kelley fhrow from fhe porfside while fhe remaining frio foss
from fhe fhird base side of fhe diamond.
Af fhe plafe Harry Falcigno and Andy Robusfelli lead fhe fhumpers
wifh fimely hifs and occasional exfra-base knocks. Harry's average is up
in fhe sfrafospheric four-hundreds while Andy's big hunk of lumber has
broken up several ball games. Mosf nofable was his firsf of fhe ninfh
home run wifh fwo mafes on fhaf spelled defeaf for Wesleyan in fhe
Chunky Eddie Mariano behind fhe plafe, wifh Reardon on 'rhe inifial
sack, and Ernie Lindner af shorf have provided fhe much needed de-
fensive spark for fhe Red and Whife. Lindner is "as good a college
shorfsfop as you will see all season and when his hiffing sfarfs fo improve
fhen wafch ou'I'."
Coach Sfoviak's biggesf problem has been fo find a capable pivof
man fo hold down second base. Five candidafes have been baffling for
fhe posifion all season wifh Joe Silva, lasf season's incumbenf, leading
wifh fhe sfick and Carmine Tosches' playing well afield.
The golf feam was organized in I947 fhrough fhe efforfs of William
Fleming. This season Vicfor Raponi has guided if info ifs righfful place
on our varsify sporfs program. Many experienced players have ioined
fhe squad fhis year insuring fhe feam a successful season. Mr. Tamashu-
nas, fhe feam's advisor, has arranged a schedule of mafches. Team mem-
bers are V. Raponi, J. Raponi, Fleming, Wagner, Virgilio, Cedio, Parks,
Donahue, Jerebek, McNulfy, Dunn and Flahive.

er was a major upsef. The hoopsfers of Arnold ran up one of fhe high-
esf collegiafe scores of fhe year when fhey dusfed Farmingfon I08 fo
