Y' 4 Qofts and Qgoltettes Sports here at Bentley? You het your life! Why ever since we were way hack in the ninth grade we,ve, always liked our sports fast and furious. The sportshighlight of that year was our first foothau game with Walden. We won that 18-12. b The tenth grade was our Brooklyn year, our "wait till nextn year. We didnat play many games hut we got in a lot of good practice that was to stand us in good stead during the coming seasons. We got a shot in the arm when Charley Hoher and Newt Catteu came to us in the eleventh grade. Although we got oft to a poor start hy dropping a foothau game to Xvalden, we came hack in the winter with a prolific haslcet- hau' schedule of eight games that showed the Fighting spirit and determination of the Bolts of Bentley. Seniors now'-hig deal. The football teamgunder- the direction of Charley Hoher missed the First part of the year, this waseidue to the tack of inten- sive team practice. It was a grand season, though, and our good showing- was due to perfect teamwork. . The Boitettes came into heing last year and the girls, haslcethan team quicldy hecame an exciting part of Bentley. We played a numher of games last year, winning a victory over Little Red Schoolhouse, and this year have played one game with Dalton, so far. Q ' Intramurals kept us pretty husy last season and now we are in the midst of a ping-pong tournament. Yvhen we aren,t playing haslcethau, we,re work- ing hard at voueyhau, soccer, or softhan, and in the spring tennis. Swimming is a year-round sport at the NYU, and hygiene classes add to our physical edu- cation course. Horsehacic riding is availahie for those who wish it. Sports have done something for us. We have come to realize the value of teamwork and the dangers of putting individuality hefore co-operation. XVe,ve learned how to accept 'losses with as much grace as victories, and we,ve found a common interest and enjoyment in healthy competition. 46
