This year's team will long be remembered as
the team that picked itself up off the floor
and fought its way back to the League Cham-
pionship. Not since they went undefeated in
'56 had the Bulldogs had a winning season.
This year faithful fans of Bentley were re-
warded for their perseverance.
After Bentley lost its first two games, how-
ever, many fans began to wonder if the Bull-
dogs weren't destined to have another medi-
ocre season. One of these losses was to our
arch-rival, Plymouth. Some unseen power
seemed to be against the Bulldogs, and in
order to get a share of the Suburban Six
title, they would have to win all four of their
remaining league games and someone would
have to beat Plymouth. Lady Luck arrived,
though, and with an assist from Trenton,
which beat Plymouth, Bentley wound up the
season sharing the title with those two teams.
