11-5 Record Achieved
By Fresh BB Team
This year's Freshmen Basketball Team, although
hampered by sickness, combined their talents to end up
the year with an I I win, 5 loss record.
Coach Hugh Pennington's team, one with "many
talented pIayers," was led by Most Valuable Players
Ernest Holden and Steven Gallahan.
Lack of depth in some cases and absence due to illness
prevented the team from making "a season with only one
loss." Two players were moved up to Junior Varsity level
for several games.

Practice Vital Pe: Excellence
What kind of practicing does a Cross Country team do?
During nice weather the team ran up and down stairways and
hills, practiced using the stopwatch, ran long and short
distances. If it was raining, the team worked out indoors by
lifting weights or workingvon their strong or weak areas as a
The team made use of several city parks for practice. These
parks were Laurelhurst, and Washington. Of course, Benson's
track was always available.

Mr. Merlin White, coach, Ben Choy, Randall Gray, Stan Hill,
Mike Weber, and Jim Egger, all iuniors. Sophomores with that

Mr. White was asked what the main difference between
freshmen and junior varsity cross country is, and he replied, 'IThe
course distance the freshmen will run is less or half the distance
that what the J.V.'s are running."

Varsity Basketball Team
Has Thi: Season
The Varsity Basketball team had a fair season with a
record of 2 and 2 for pre-season, and 13 and 5 for the
season. They finished second in their division. The
outstanding players were Terence Burns and Steve Suche
but the whole team played hard. '
The team started the season with four easy wins: over
Roosevelt, Lincoln, Washington, and Jefferson. But then
they suffered losses to Wilson and Grant. With renewed
enthusiasm they came back with a win over Marshall, but
were later upset by Adams. Then they stunned Madigan
and won-all the rest except their all-important loss to
Wilson. This was an extreme disappointment to Mr. Gray
the coach. '
