rated. The Techmen were denied victory on three occasions as
they lost to Wilson, Grant and Roosevelt.
The laurels of victory came to Benson when they defeated
Lincoln in their opener, dumped Adams and trounced
Becoming less consistent towards the end of the season,
the gymnasts failed to place well in city or state, taking third at
the city meet.
At the district meet Benson unleashed the potential power
they had held all season long and placed fourth with 97 points.
Benson sent one of the city's best gymnasts, Gary
Cleveland, to the State Gymnastics Championship meet. Gary
has been to State four times.
The "Fantastic Frosh" placed eighth in the parallel bars and
seventh in the high bar competition his first trip to state. Gary
showed improvement as a sophomore and proved it by
winning sixth place in the "All?around catagory. A repeat
placing in the "All-around" and a seventh in the parallel bars
summed up Gary's junior year. Gary brought home another
seventh in parallel bars and an eight in vaulting competion as a
senior. Gary Cleveland has been the lVlost Valuable Gymnast
all four years he has been at Benson.
