Practicing in the gym after school it's a free throw for everybody.
Boy's Fizzie Ed..
Une of the outstanding features of our school
curriculum is the athletic department, which has
one of the best physical education programs in
the state. NVirh the opening of school, classes
were held on the athletic field where tag football
predominated. Daily calisthenies were a regular
part of the program to build the body physically
as well as mentally.
As the weather grew colder, the classes moved
inside, where basketball was the chief interest,
along with wrestling, boxing, tumbling, and gym
ln the spring, things really began to roll with
softball and tennis in the spotlight. Also on the
program were field and track events, and volley-
'lihe capable co-ordinator of this program was
Coach Tony Simeon, athletic director and coach
of football and basketball.
Lqft: Looks like a looper. Right: Boy,s gym class and a pigskin make for a fast game of tag football.

with six victories while taking nine setbacks
against top flight teams.
The two successful games against Burlington
and R. j. Reynolds were followed by two de-
feats to Mt. Airy and Burlington. jimmy
Riclcert pitched a no-hitter against Salisbury, but
lost, however, on an unearned run in the last
Representing High Point on the North Caro-
lina All-Star team was Nelvin Cooper, who with
Don Huber, jack Wfhite, Don Hooper, and Bob

sisted by james Thomas and Rodney Vlfblls.
