VARSITY BASKETBALL g
Starting the season with a team composed of two recruits, Marshall and Pjesky, and three
veterans, Smith, Elsner, and Peckham, the Tigers, under the guidance of their popular coach, Bill
Perigo, opened the season with unimpressive victories over Niles and Dowagiac.
Opening the conference season, the Tigers ran into difficulties in the form of Marcecek,
crack forward of Muskegon Heights, as they took their initial defeat. Peckham kept the Bengals in
the game with thirteen points.
The Big Reds from Muskegon invaded the Harbor gym next with their veteran team to
hang the second loss on the Tigers. Peckham again paced the attack with ten points.
The zone defense of the Grand Haven boys in their "box" gym bottled up Peckham and
Elsner the following week as the Havenites turned on the power in the second half to cinch
Qlimbing back to .500, the Orange and Black took over their rivals from across the river.
The holding of St. Joes ace, Fillbrandt, to one point and Elsner's shooting featured the victory.
Showing the best teamwork of the season, the boys lost a tough one to the rangy Dutch
from Holland. For a time the Tigers led, but the Dutch height proved too much. Elsner shone bril-

Muskegon ws the victim of the team's newffound spirit and took a 33f27 licking for the
Tiger's first conference victory. This was by far the best game of the season from all angles. Peck'
ham turned in twelve points to lead the scoring, but the team as a unit played well.
Meeting a "hot" Grand Haven team, led by DeWitt, the team suffered another setback.
Twentyfone points in the third period put the game on ice for the visitors.
In a rough ball game, the Harbor-ites dropped the Holland boys in a 14 to 13 thriller.
Defense featured this defeat of the conference leaders.
Catastrophe struck the team when "Red" McGrath broke his leg the following week at
Kalamazoo. This greatly dimmed the chances in the regional. Peckham's eleven points featured the
Before the regional the following Friday, Smith injured his knee and the team was
left without experienced guards. With this handicap, the boys succumbed to a Kalamazoo rally in
the second half to drop from the tournaments.
In the inale of the season, the boys came back to take an oftfpostponed St. Joe. game.
The third combination, composed mostly of Juniors, clicked beautifully as Peckham led his mates
with sixteen points.
Though perhaps unsuccessful from the games-wonfand-lost angle, the season can be con-
sidered a success, as Coach Perigo develoed some boys who should do much in future seasons. Peck
ham was highfscorer for the year with 119 points.
