Tech Varsity Reigns
Varsity football roared to a fantastic regular season
of nine wins and zero losses. The season was Coach
Dressel's first perfect record since coming to Benson
and the team's first perfect season since 1928.
The only loss came in a playoff game against
Columbia High School. Columbia's only score came
on a 97 yard punt return. The techman played good
defense but were unable to hold on - to the ball
offensively in a game that was played in pouring rain.
The final score was 3-7 Columbia.

BenSon's Fall Rally
S Very Rewarding
Benson's Fall Rally was very busy last year, doing
everything from inspiring loyal Benson fans to selling
the near famous Flapper-clappers. While the rally was
cheering the football team onto a perfect season, they
were also selling ribbons, megaphones, and much
more cheering paraphernalia. The Fall Rally also
participated in the Thunderbird dance and drill
competition, doing very well there.
The rally made their entrance at the Football
Jamboree in a big way, riding the Peateor's Engine
House Pizza fire truck into the Civic Stadium. With only
one Pep assembly last year the rally did not have much
chance to teach the student body their cheers but the
spirit buses the school provided, gave the rally
members a chance to teach the cheers to the students
who rode the buses, and they told them to the other
students at the games.
"Being on the rally was a very exciting experience
and I feel everyone should try it: You make so many
friends with great people, it is wonderful," said Becky
Hall 1111, cheerleader.
