Although their first season of competition in swimming proved to be a
rather dismal one for Bentley's tank-men, they salvaged some glory
by taking fourth place in the Suburban 6-A League tournament. Five
members of the team earned the right to participate in the finals. Of
these, John Tresh placed first and Ron Omar sixth in diving, Ron
McKinnon third in the 50 and l00 yard freestyle events, Phil Prong,
fourth in the 200 yard freestyle, and Charles Whiteside sixth in the
400 yard freestyle. Coach Joiner is optimistic for next year, all but
three letter-men will return.

Cross Country routes were rough this year.
Fall of '58 was a bad one for the Cross Country team, which
lost every meet in which the boys participated. ln the Thurston
Invitational, Bentley runners placed eighth out of fourteen and
in the Clarenceville Invitational they placed eighth out of ten.
Endurance practice required the boys to run four to six miles
each week, wind sprints helped build up speed, and loads of
calisthenics added to the boys' general physical conditioning.
ln spite of these preparations, Coach Fred McGlone explained
that the Bentleyites iust didn't come up to par in principles of
running, they needed more experience in learning howto pace
themselves for distance running both for over-all speed and

Bentley's wrestlers were the first school team to earn a i958-59
trophy to add to the athletic showcase. Ably guided by Mr. Peter
Kokenakes and his assistant, Mr. Dan Webster, the matmen went to
work early in the season and never let up. They also initiated the
uninitiated by staging the league championship bout before a large
representation of Bentleyites and explaining the mysteries of the sport
as the meet progressed.
