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,
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
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.

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
"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.

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
Bexley expects the team of 1928 to go one
better and not lose a game. E
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
