BASKETBALL Basketball as well as football showed a great improvement over former years. The complete record for the season show- ed fifteen victories and six defeats. Credit must be given to Harold Cummings, form- er coach, and Kenneth MacKenzie, who guided the boys throughout most of the season. Most of the defeats came from Class B and very strong C-D teams. Only twice was Berlin defeated by teams in their own class. Members of the team were Captain Domkowski, Callahan, Cugno, Orrechio, Knope, Gardner, Ai vano, Gelmini, Sadey, and Rusczyk. FOOTBALL For the first time in the history of Berlin High School the football team got started and lost but two times during the whole season. Seniors occupied varsity line except for one end. Patterson was elected Captain and, when he was put out of the game because of injury, Scagliotti was chosen as co-captain. Lettermen were: Patterson, Scagliotti, Callahan, Sadey, Burwell, Dodson, Derlaga, Motyka, Cugno, Benson, Mc- Queeney, O’Brien, Lemieux, Orrechio, Baearro, and Bighinnatli.
