Although failing to win a meet, the 1955 cross-country team gained a great deal of
experience which should prove invaluable in the years to come.
Made up almost entirely of underclassmen, Coach Farnum's team loses only
three harriers via graduation: Jerry Light, Pat Aviles, and Gary Musser.
The 1955 golf team, under new coach Mr. Frank Learn, enjoyed its most successful
season in recent years by winning eight out of eleven meets.
Paced by Don Virkus, who tied for second, the golfers finished in a tie for third
in the regional meet.
