Grant Generals. Benson won 4-1, Krueger pitched a four-

The first game was a clear cut Benson victory i5 to 2I as
Krueger pitched o seven hitter, however, they were all
scattered and Grant could not make a rally.
The second game was all Grant as Ted Notos, a
sophomore at Grant, held Tech to iust one hit. The defense
for Tech also went astray as Grant scored nine runs, to
even the series.
Rain postponed the third game for one day, the rest
gave both teams a break.
Coach Bill Ranta commented, "We've had a break in
the weather all year, everybody knows it. I feel I've really
been fortunate to be able to coach this team. They are a
group of fine atheletesf'
Depth and poise was maintained by every member of
the team. This year a 17 win, 1 loss record was compiled
during the regular season.
First team All-Stars for the PIL included Krueger C9-1 pit-

To Remember For Grade
"Looking To The Future" was the theme for the 1976
Senior Prom. Senior Class Officers headed by John Gian-
nakis spearheaded the plans for the Prom. Jerry Clark, in
charge of the committee to obtain the band, scheduled
"Prism", a popular group.
Again this year the Jantzen Beach Thunderbird Hotel
was selected as the site for the special event. The River-
view Room has excellent facilities and enables prom at-
tenders to take a leisurely walk while viewing the lights
reflecting off the water of the Columbia River.
Dinner was included in the 515.00 per couple ticket and
was served 7:30. Dancing took place from 8:30 to 12:00.
Even though formal wear was not required, a suit or
sport iacket was. Many students dressed their finest and
fanciest for the occasion.
