Lingo Decker Kennedy Burgess Stone OUTZ McCuLLOUGH Harris Majors Krentel Beasley bowerman Morse huddleston Lewis ' .-i rtK: «V .a8- " icj, ' .-- " i.i )« Baseball Thrust into the very midst of spring football training season with only a week ' s practice to their credit and with icy March winds howling around the diamond, the Centenary Gentlemen fell far short of their records made on the gridiron and hardwood court. In spite of expert instruction by Coach Elmer Smith, it was their lack of hitting power coupled with ragged fielding that caused most of the defeats suffered at the hands of their opponents. Out of ten scheduled games, the baseball nine turned in only two victories for the glory of their Alma Mater. The first of a two-game series with Illinois Wesleyan found the Gents on the short end of the 5-4 decision, and in the second meeting between the two teams, a number of errors and failure to hit in the pinches by Centenary gave the victory to the visitors. Games with Louisiana Tech and other state teams were lost by close scores. ,J Elmer Smith Baseball Coach Page 134 •

Managed capably, for the second time, by Ashley Sibley, who kept the tiny spark of tennis fever aglow through all of the rain and fog of the winter months, the team was unquestionably made up of the best " racket weild- ers " in the college, for prior to the choosing of the Centenary representatives in tennis, an elimination tournament was held in which approximately 30 interested athletes took part. Its conclusion found the 1937 team playing in the following positions: Philip Stagg, No. 1; Jud Chidlow, No. 2; Tom Richard- son, No. 3; Ed Railsback, No. 4, and C. E. Ewing, No. 5. Stagg and Railsback were also on the 1936 roster. Local and out of town matches were held with Louisiana State Normal, Louisiana College, Marshall College and Stephen F. Austin State Teachers College. A good deal of credit for the large number of tennis enthusiasts should be given to the athletic depart- ment, through whose co-operation more appropriations were made for games and facilities than ever before. In addition to renewing old nets and lines, two brand new tennis courts were constructed, which afforded a great deal of enjoyment to the general student body during the spring months. • Page 133 •

Purdue University came down from the frozen North and reveUing in our wintry weather which had the Southerners shivering in their dugout, defeated Centenary in a double-header by scores of 6-4 and 8-2. Confronted with their perrenial rivals, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, the Gents again bit the dust in two close games, 9-6 and 5-3. Good pitching and few errors accounted for Stephen F. Austin being the first victims of the Maroon and White, but in the next game with the same opponents, the Gents were again all thumbs and booted the boys from Nacadoches into the winning column, 13-3. The last games of the season were again played with La. Tech. In the first, jittery nerves handed the ball game to the wearers of the Blue and Red 8-2, but Stone and the Gents came back magnificently to end the season with a Centenary victory, 9-2.
