1941- marked a big year, with a capital li , for
our Pioneer tracksters. Few years in East's history
have been marked hy such overwhelming superiority
upon the cinder paths. Although competing with an
extremely small squad. East was able to walk off with
laurels galore. They started their trophy quest hy
taking the Class B Regional crown, then added the
State Meet the following week. and walked off with
the Grand Valley Conference championship in their
third hig week-end.
Our opening triumph in the regionals gave definite
indication that East would he a strong force in the
state track meet. Victory. however. was not easily
achieved. as we barely nosed out Hastings.
The highlight of the regionals was the exceptional
performance turned in hy lloh Swain. who walked
off with three hrsts and ran anchor on the winning
relay team. His time of l0.ll flat in the century
shaved .2 of a second off the existing state record.
A good share of firsts and seconds was also turned
in hy other lvoys,
Winning the state meet was a real feat. for our
l'ioneers were up against the licst competition in
Nliehigan, Swain again showed his heels to his
competitors in lnoth the ltltl and 220. taking lvoth
races and also l2 xalualile points, ,lim 'lliller placed
third in the llill-yard dash. and liud Poisson tied for
fourth in the pole-vault to round out our scoring
upon the field.
Behind 5 19 'ol points as the meet swung into the
last event. lfast pulled victory out of the hag hy
winning the relay in fine fashion. By doing so. East
was able to nose out Ypsilanti Central. hy l5f6-l
of a point. The winning relay team was composed
of Jim Miller. Don Kranenberg. Tim Gilmore. and
The season was climaxed the following week hy
our taking a second straight Grand Valley cup. .-is
state champions. we were expected to walk away
with the meet. This. however, was not true. for
Wyoming Park came within a few points of upsetting
East hcgan the l945
season with a nearly
nnlreatalrle track team
- -nearly all our point-
winners returning from
last season. Among
these lwoys were Holi
