SUMMARY OF THE SEASON
ENTRAL opened the season of '23 with a great deal ot material, both old and new.
After much effort and delay Coach James secured a gym and practice was started
.Then after several weeks of hard practice and rigid training, the team was ready
for its first clash. Stephenville was selected as the victim. lBut Central was not in good
form, winning only one of the two games. Then she beat Airlington Heights, North Side
and Poly ln the approved one, two, three style.
Next came the big time of the season, the time when al team must be selected to go
to the district tournament at Denton. Central had woni the city championship and
expected to go to the meet. But for some unknown reason, the squawking Poly Parrots,
a team which Central had decisively beaten, was selecteid to represent Fort Worth.
Although the morale of the team was somewhat shattered by this injustice, it came
back and won the inter-city championship of Fort Worth and Dallas. Then Central
journeyed to Dallas to attend the A. A. U. meet. '
The boys were off form the first game and this, coupled with much hard luck, caused
them to lose it. But they showed their fight and determiniation by winning the rest of
their games and bringing home the Consolation Cup. By hard work and good coaching,
Central lost only two games throughout the season. Thuls ended the most successful
basketball season Central has ever had. l

A SUMMARY OF THE SEASON
HE baseball season opened this year on the first sunny
day that Old Man Weather permitted. The prospects
for a fine team were brighter than ever before, and
Coach Berry was confident of turning out a championship
team because of the good material he had to choose from.
After several weeks of hard work and practice, the
Panthers ventured forth to Dallas to take on their first
victim. They gave Bryan Street High a hard fight and the
game ended 3 to 3. Next Central beat the Poly Parrots, tied
North Side and then sent the Arlington Heights team back
across the river on the small end of a 24 to 1 score. -
Although the Panther is going to press on the eve of
the North Side series, it wishes the team the best of luck in
the world and is confident that it will win, not only this series,
but also the state championship.

JOHNSON ......,..,.....,.............. ...,,. F orward
"Deadhorse" was the high point man of the
squad. He was a great offensive man. He
was fast on his feet and had a habit of finding
the basket quite often. He is due to have a
great season next year.
STEADMAN .....,............,...,.,..,,..... Forward
When fight was needed "Slim" always cam.-
through with it. He was due for a good sea-
son this year and he surely had it. With his
two years' experience on the team, he will make
a good captain next year.
WOOLDRIDGE ...,,.........,......,....,....... Center
"Tad" hail from Lubbock, Texas. He found
plenty of space to be filled around the center
of the court and, being accustomed to plenty of
room, he surely filled it. Bill James will be
hard pressed to replace this youngster next
FRAZEE ...............,,..,.,................,.,,,,., Guard
No mistake was made when "Don" was se-
lected on the all-city team. He is one of the
best basketball players this city has ever pro-
duced. He is a great defensive man and can
also take the ball down the court.
BAKER .... ,.,.......,........,........, ......, G u ard
"Punk" was the hard-playing guard and cap-
tain who led Centi-al's fighting basketball team
through its most successful season. His skill,
courage and strength allowed him to play a
fast, furious game. Central is losing a wonder-
ful athlete when "Punk" graduates this year.
MOORE .,...........,,...............,..,....,,........ Guard
"Poss" always had an abundance of speed
and when he was in the game he surely dealt
misery to the opposition. "Poss" kept his end
of the court well covered and managed to get
a good share of the goals.
EVANS ...,..,............,..,.........,........,,,,.., Guard
Harold came into our midst at the beginning
of the second term from West Side High. His
wilfingness, hard working, and ability soon
earned him a position on the team. He always
gave his best and it will be Central's loss when
he finishes in June.
NN ..,..,...,......... 1 ...,.....,,..,......,,....,, Forward
Although small in stature, Marvin always
drew a large share of the opposition's atten-
tion. "Chink" was a good floor man and could
advance the ball with the best of them. He
was very accurate at hitting the basket.
