-3 '---' ----- - - --l 43 as ---------- - '--- -- E Track Bexley has the best track team it has ever had in thc years preceeding. Its strength is due to the fact that it is well balanced, for, "A team is just as strong as its weakest player." Last year with only six men on the team, Bexley captured third place in the meet at Ohio lVesleyan. Now what are the possibilities of the same team with all this extra strength added this year? Six Seniors on the team will graduate this year and their leaving will be felt deeply when Coach Smith starts molding the team into shape next year. They are as follows: Capt. Heil, Davis, Busch, Brown, Sheatsley, and Klopfer. The team consists of Capt. Heil, hurdles, high jump, javelin and discusg Edward Klop- fer, shot put and discusg Irving Brown, 100- yard dash, 220-yard dash and 440-yard dash3 Tom Davis, javelin, and broad jumpg Henry Busch, 100-yard dash and 4-4-0-yard dashg Bowles Ford, 100-yard dash and 220-yard dash3 Lewis Russell, high jump, hurdles and 220-yard d8SllQ Jack Ross, hurdles, mile and half mile3 Howard Anthony, mile and high jumpg Clarence Sheatsley, 220-yard dash and 4140-yard dash. Arch Houstle, 220-yard dash and 440-yard dash. This team should win all its meets and the much coveted, Central District Sectional State Meet at Ohio XVesleyan this year bc- cause of its enormous strength. Boys' Basket Ball Basketball has been Bexley's favorite sport for many years. The reason for this is that we always have good teams and the reason why we have good teams is because we have a coach who knows basketball. Carlton Smith. This year Bexley had a Championship team, winning 13 out of 1-1- games during the regular playing season. Our only loss was to Xenia, a Class A school, who nosed us out by a two-point margin. All the other games were easy victories for Bexley. 'We defeated all the outstanding Class B teams in Colum- bus, Franklin County and the vicinity. The complete scores of the season of 1927 are as follows: Bexley, 3453 Capital Academy, 8. Bexley, 293 East, 25. Bexley, 303 St. lifarys, 8. Bexley, 235 Arlington, 18. Bexley, 533 Groveport, 19. Bexley, 303 St. Charles, 9. Bexley, 303 London, 8. Bexley, 4-23 Capital Freshmen, 25. Bexley, 213 Aquinas, 17. Bexley, 3413 Columbus Academy, 20. Bexley, 215 Canal Vvinchester, 13. Bexley, 28, St. Charles, 21. Bexley, 253 Xenia, 27. Bexley, 273 Grandview, 13. At the end of the season, Bexley entered the Delaware Tournament, where they went through two rounds, easily defeating Bell Point, and Magnetic Springs. Bexley was put out of the running by Arlington, whom we had defeated earlier in the season. The tournament was very hard on our team, play- ing two games a day, and some of the players driving to and from Columbus before and after each game. . . The team was captained by Lewis Russell, our excellent forward, whose flashy playing and superb guidance led the team through this successful season and result of whichhe was re-elected captain. "Bill" Bailey, our stellar forward and high point scorer, played a steady game through- out the season. "Bud" Sheatsley, center, was an excellent floor man and also very good on the offense. He will be a great loss to the squad next year. "Ed" Klopfer, back guard, in his last game made a basket for Bexley, this was the first and only one l1e made in his four years of basketball at Bexley, but "Eddie" always made up for them in his perfect defensive work. A ' "Tom" Davis, also a Senior, played run- ning guard. 'fTom" made his share of the points and was always fine on the defense. Sixty-five a K ,Sify 'Qt

Stewart played run- ning guard when necessary this year and will be our running guard next year. - Burton Elder, forward, played very well for his first year in basketball. Burton is a Sophomore and has a very promising future on the team. "Dave" Davis, back guard, will' take Ed- ward Klopfcr's place next year. Dave is a good shot and very good on the defense. N Other players on the squad are: Uhlartyj' Heil, Harry Parsons, Paul Sterner, "Bill,' Deihl, "Bob" Palmer, "Little Tom" Davisi, Jack Ross, Robert Dickey, Don Morris. Due to the fine record of the team this year they were given a dinner by Mrs. Russell and a swimming party by llirs. Hirsch and Blr. Davis. Bexley expects the team of 1928 to go one better and not lose a game. E L l 1 1 Baseball The baseball team of 1927 is expected to win most of its games if not all, because of the way in which Coach Smith and his assist- ant coach, Mr. Dieterich, has gotten the team into shape. lNIr. Smith has been working with the same team for the past two years and its hitting power and fielding ability has developed greatly. The team is made up of Tom Davis, John Petrie, "Bill" Barrett, Stewart Hirsch, Paul Sixty-sim and Reed Davidson, Robert Dickey, Henr Seibert, Paul Sterner, Francis Lauffer, Cai Obenland, Lawrence Moyer, "Bill" Bailey, Harold Marsh, Dave Davis, llflarion Secke Ralph Linscott, Francis Rowlands and Lew Russell. This year we have a very strenuous sche - ule, playing eight games altogether. We d - feated Columbus Academy, our annual rival., 10 to 4 in a practice game. l., is
