Traek Sirivee For Excellence
The Benson Varsity Track team, according to Mr. Merlin
White, had a fairly good season this year. Even though the
team had a 3 win, 4 loss record, every team member had
better timing over last year.
This year the team had meets on two sunny days, the
rest of the time they had to compete in their events in cool
and rainy weather.
Twenty-six letters were awarded to the Varsity team
members at the end of the season. Nine of the team
members qualified for the City Meet which is State quali-
fying. Mr. White stated that Bob Fulton and Tim Tyler were
the best for State competition.
To help pole vaulters increase their skills the school
received over S500 worth of new pale vaulting equip-

received eventually so all members of track will have up-

Grade School Skills
Despite early morning practices, four weeks of rained
out games, seventy per cent of the practices held indoors,
and some minor iniuries - Benson's Frosh Baseball Team
achieved a 5 win, 2 loss record.
The enthusiasm and desire to play ball was at a high
level most ofthe season after an opening loss to Madison.
Tim Taylor, the team's Most Valuable Player, led the team
offensively, while Steve Nakata and Mike Hoglund made
key plays defensively.
The pitching was paced by Scott Brusse's winning T3-Ol
fast ball. Bob Ventrella, John Tercek, Jerry Beal, and Neal
Hoisington also contributed key plays throughout the
season. With the continued hustle and desire of this
season, this team has a bright future ahead.
