TIPTE TCBRCIT -'
Bexley Girls' Basketball Team of '26 was
by far the best Bexley has ever had. The
squad was large, containing many excellent
veteran players and quite a number of prom-
ising new ones. The team went through the
season undefeated and were runner's up in
the Franklin County Tournament. The six
girls comprising the first team have gone
through their second successful season under
the captaincy of Norma Hieronymus. The
loss of four Senior members will be felt next
year. Lucille Kruckeberg has been elected
captain for 1927. Letters were awarded
this year to Norma Hieronymus, Charlotte
Kruckeberg, Caroline S a n f o r d, Lucille
Kruckeberg, Frances Holtzman, Josephine
Manly, Laura Reed, Marcella Bailey, Irma
Hale, Edythe Manly, Louise Miller.
Special mention should be made of the
six girls who formed the regular lineup,
Norma Hieronymus who has had a brilliant
career of basketball at Bexley. She was the
high scorer of the team and led it to victory.
Her loss in the future will mark a great
Bexley has had good basketball teams for
many years. VVhenever the word Bexley
is mentioned one immediately thinks of bas-
betball, the County and "Little Three"
Bexley's team this year was very success-
ful. It is true we did not win either of the
championships, but we can't expect that all
the time. VVe are satisfied with eight wins
and six defeats this season.
Our team got off to a fine' start this year.
We had little trouble in defeating St.
Charles 28 to 6. The game with Hilliards
was a thriller but we "took them in" for a
9 to 8 count.
The following Friday the team was in a
terrible slump. lve let VVorthington beat us
20 to 17.
Once again we won from St. Charles. We
defeated the East Broad St. school by a 19
to 8 score. The game with Capital Academy
ended in another victory for the blue and
white. lVc copped a 22 to 12 win from
The game with Canal VVinchester was
Charlotte Kruckeberg, forward, who has
played for four years with Bexley, running
up many high scores. Charlotte's ready eye
and accurate aim could always be relied on.
She was chosen as all-county forward. Her
place will be hard to fill.
Caroline Sanford, center, who has jumped
two years for Bexley. Caroline's ability to
pass and her all around good sportsmanship
were important factors on the team. She
too is lost to the team through graduation.
Frances Holtzman, guard, who has played
consistently and well for two years. Danny's
smile and her fighting spirit has held down
many a score of the opponents. Bexley
looses a good guard in loosing her.
Lucille Kruckeberg, running center, a fine
player, clean athlete and a fighter. "Lack"
fought her way to many glories. She made
all-county center in the tournament. "Lack"
is next year's captain.
Josephine Manly, guard, who has played
two years and has one more. Jo is a fighter
and a keen sport. She too was chosen guard
in the all-county team.
fast and furious but we downed the "corn
fed" boys by an 18 to 15 score.
The first step toward the "Little Three"
championship came when we defeated the
fast Grandview quintet 16 to 13.
Then a defeat by Xenia, 31 to 17, and
another by the O. S. Orphan Home quelled
the high hopes some, but we did very well
considering the fact that we played a Class
The season ended in a defeat at the hands
of the Columbus Academy. They won the
"Little Three" pennant by a 25 to 11 score.
The season as a whole was a success.
The team developed into a well balanced
scoring machine with Davis, Storer and Rus-
sel as leading scorers. Hayes and Klopfer
did their share, but while they lacked an
eagle eye for the basket, they always kept
fighting until the last whistle.
To pick a "star" would be going too far.
There was no one individual who deserves
that honor. Had it not been for the fine
team spirit which was displayed all season
and the sheer determination to win, Bexley
might have lost several more games.
