l .Vki  % %  The 1949 ReflectorThe 1949 Reflector Volume Thirty-three Published by the Senior ClassDedication To Mr. Anthony Paulekas, whom we have always admired and respected during our four years of high school, we, the Class of 1949, dedicate our yearbook. Through his fine football squads, his championship wrestling teams, his excellent teaching of character and citizenship, and his active participation in our school and our class activities, Mr. Paulekas, our teacher, coach, and friend, has brought many honors to our school and to our community. May our yearbook, long after we have been graduated from Farrell Senior High School, recall many happy memories to him. The Class of 1949Dedication MR. ANTHONY PAULEKAS Alma Mater Hail to the Blue and Gold, Hail ever hail! Thy sons with voices bold Thee ever hail. Our hearts will always be Loyal and true. Hail ever hail to thee, Our Gold and Blue.MR. JOHN HETRA, Superintendent of the Farrell Public Schools AdministrationBoard of Education Anthony C. Tortorete President Michael Stepanish Vice President Samuel Magnotto Treasurer Harry C. Tennant George J. Wetherstein Secretary Thomas Armstrong School Solicitor 8JOHN HETRA Superintendent of the Farrell Public Schools A. B., Westminster College, M. Ed., University of PittsburghFarrell School System School systems in the State of Pennsylvania have been classified as 8-4 plans— eight years of elementary and four years of high school; 6-6 plans—six years of elementary and six years of high school; 6-3-3 plans—six years of elementary, three years of Junior High School, and three years of Senior High School. Where plant facilities and equipment permit and can be provided, the plan usually recommended and suggested is the 6-3-3 plan. The Farrell School District, through the vision and planning of those in charge of the education of this community, has provided adequately two fine high school buildings, necessary for the institution of the elementary, junior high school, senior high school plan of progressive education. In essence, and in addition to the elementary program, we have two high schools. The curriculum and the activities of each high school are planned according to the requirements of these two levels of secondary education. The program of studies, generally speaking, follows in accordance with the philosophy of the School District which expresses the needs of the greatest number of children and which philosophy comes from the teachers, through the administration, and finally through the action of the Board of School Directors. This philosophy and these policies are guided and directed by the Department of Public Instruction. In the case of secondary schools, junior and senior high school plans are under the direct supervision of the Office of the Chief of Secondary Education, Department of Public Instruction. After one year of study and preparation by the Board of Education, Dr. Edwin W. Cruttenden, Chief of Secondary Education, following an inspection of the junior high school in November, approved both the junior high school as a secondary school and the Farrell School system as a 6-3-3 plan. In addition to a complete program of regular subjects, the Chief of Secondary Education approved the newly organized and equipped Industrial Shop for the seventh, eighth and ninth grade boys, and the adequately furnished and renovated Home Economics Department of four rooms for the seventh, eighth and ninth grade girls. Library facilities were expanded and the supply of books, both for fiction and curricular uses, was increased. The Art and the Music Departments were approved as being above standard. A necessary guidance function and department were added and approved also. The work completed in the Farrell School District, including the reorganization of the general plan of the Farrell School system, a state appraisal of the Vocational Industrial Department, and the appraisal and reorganization of other departments, has been done objectively toward having our schools accredited with the Commission on Secondary Schools by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Preliminary steps have been taken in this direction and application forms have been received by the Farrell School District from the Middle States Association. The following standards for secondary schools will be the basis of the appraisal: the philosophy of the school, the educational program of the school, program of studies, pupil activity program, guidance service, library, staff of the school, school plant, administration, school and community relations.

BURNS, School Nurse RALPH MILLER, Attendance Officer 19Our Democracy and Education The theme of the democracies of the world today is: “Preserve the democratic way of life.” The best way to preserve democracy is to provide the means by which our children may be well-educated. An opportunity for education for all our youth is America’s noblest contribution to civilization, and no parent should allow the opportunity for education of his children to pass by—for no man can ever leave a richer legacy to the world than a well-educated family. Our schools teach the significance of democracy, its importance, and the reason for requiring that each citizen take his part in the life and work of our country. As citizens of a democratic society, we must be committed to the theory that education pays, that it is vital to industrial and economic sufficiency, that it is an important factor in personal satisfaction and enjoyment, and that it is basic for democratic citizenship. All capable youth, therefore, must be encouraged to obtain a certain degree of educational proficiency. Education today is more than a study of the classics and ologies. It is fundamentally the teaching of youth and the motivation of their desires for the better things in life, and the aid in developing the skills and abilities to attain, use, and enjoy these better things in life. Here in Farrell Senior High School by a wide selection of courses, we offer the youth of our community the basic education for that adequacy which will enable them to live a full life. The Academic Course is planned for college preparation; the Commercial Course for training accountants, stenographers, bookkeepers and clerks; the Vocational-Industrial Course for developing salable skills and those understandings and attitudes that make a worker an intelligent and productive participant in economic life; the Vocational Beauty Culture Course for a career as a skilled beauty technician; the Vocational Home Economics Course for training for the pursuits and occupations connected with the home; and the General Course for providing a broad civic, scientific, and cultural training for a life of intelligent, active citizenship. To these present courses we will add Driver Education, to make our citizens more efficient and safe drivers of motor vehicles, and Distributive Education to prepare young people to participate in the retail selling phase of our economic life, to broadeo their opportunities for employment, to make them better consumers. In addition to the regular courses of study, a guidance counseling program is offered that functions through the office of the guidance director in collaboration with the testing director, the faculty, and the administration. The purpose of this program is to offer through personal interview's, group and individual tests, and group lectures, a means of discovering something about the abilities, interest and needs of our students, and using the knowledge gained for their benefit. Our aim is to develop an enlightened citizenry, for we believe that the ultimate strength of our democracy lies in the minds of its citizens. ANTHONY J.

We were Freshmen then, when everything seemed new and different to us. However, it wasn’t long before we became accustomed to senior high school. Within less than a month’s time, under the direction of Mr. Stephan Marin, we elected our class officers, Alfred Paulekas, president; Michael Sabo, vice-president; and Theresa Sed, secretary. We sponsored two dances that year, a Fall Festival and a Spring Frolic. While still Freshmen, many members of our class became active in the band, the chorus, and in all fields of sports that the school had to offer. All too soon, our first year of high school came to an end, and we looked forward to a successful Sophomore year. In September, 1946, we returned to school full of spirit. As Sophomores, under the guidance of our class advisor, Miss Margaret Roux, we elected our class officers: Samuel Nicastro, president; Alfred Paulekas, vice-president; and Theresa Sed, secretary. This year, just as before, we took part in all extra-curricular activities existing in the school. We sold play tickets, attended all sports events, and supported all the clubs in which we were enrolled. To terminate this year, we held a Spring Frolic with the Freshman Class. The gym was gaily decorated for this affair. Each class had nearly a perfect attendance. Soon our Junior year came. Since we all knew the importance of this year, we tried our best to make it successful. With our class advisor, Mrs. Julia Wallace Jenkins, we elected our officers: Walter Kaletka, president; Joseph Mirizio, vice-president; and Theresa Sed, secretary. To attend the Senior Homecoming Queen, we chose Mildred Dudash. At last, time came for the biggest and best dance of the year—the Junior-Senior Prom. Under the supervision of Mr. Paul Komar and with much enthusiasm on the part of every member of the class, we turned the gymnasium into an elaborate setting resembling a flower garden. All our efforts brought results, for the prom was a highly successful social event. Then came the long awaited senior year. Under the direction of our class advisor, Miss Esther Zentz, we were destined to make this, our last year, a year long to be remembered. We elected Lee Pritz, class president; Joseph Yazvac, vice-president; and Theresa Sed, secretary. We sponsored our first dance, ‘‘The Homecoming Dance,” with Doris Miles, reigning queen, and Shirley Bastide and Phyllis Kretchek her attendants. It was a colorful event as football Co-captains Samuel Nicastro and George Keryan crowned the queen at the beginning of the Farrell-Rochester football game. At our second class meeting, we chose “Progressive Always,” for our class motto; Royal Blue and Gray, for our class colors; and the Yellow Rose, for our class flower. We soon began to publish the Reflector. Later we ordered our calling cards, memory books, and invitations. As the year began to end, we were guests of the Juniors at the Junior-Senior Prom. On May 23, we held our Class Breakfast and the Farewell Assembly after which we left for a thrill packed Class Day, at Idora Park. On May 29, we donned our caps and gowns to attend Baccalaureate Services. On June 1, we wore our caps and gowns for the last time as we attended our Commencement Exercises. We left our dear Alma Mater to go into a new and different world of tomorrow. May God be with us!

Under the guidance of Head Coach Anthony Paulekas, and his Assistants Felix Bonadio, Charles Hennen, and John Popadak, the boys worked to form the squad that represented their school. During the second week of training, Coach Paulekas named George Ker-yan and Samuel Nicastro Co-Captains. Coach Anthony Paulekas Co-Captains George Keryan—Samuel Nicastro 62The 1948 Football Season SEPTEMBER 11 WESLEYVILLE 0-19 By defeating Wesleyville 19-0, the Night Riders opened their 1948 season with a bang. Keryan entered the scoring column first on a 65-yard jaunt to paydirt, followed by hard-charging Herbert Williams, who scored on a 22-yard off-tackle play. After a 46 yard drive, Keryan flipped a quick pastf to DeLise, who snagged it in the end zone for the third score. Alfred Paulekas’ placement made it 19-0. SEPTEMBER 17 MEADVILLE 0-38 Out to avenge last year’s 7-7 tie, the Paulekasmen turned in a sterling performance against Meadville High School. Samuel Nicastro, 1948 W. P. I. A. L. all-star, showed his colors when he scored twice, once on a blocked punt, and once on an interception. Co-Captain George Keryan sparked the Night Riders offense with two scores, 35 and 45-yard runs, passing to DeLise and Songa for two more. Alfred Paulekas kicked two points, making the score 38-0. Due to the defensive play of Wojtanoski, Abate, Lichvar, and Missory, backed by Nicastro, the Bulldogs penetrated only to the Farrell 30-yard line. SEPTEMBER 24 VANDERGRIFT 0-21 In a hard fought game, Vandergrift became victim number three. Edward Bruno, driving fullback, entered the scoring column on a 3-yard plunge. George Keryan added a 35-yard touchdown jaunt and DeLise, glue-fingered end, scored his third tally on a 17-yard pass from Keryan. Three placements by Paulekas made the 21-0 victory complete. Special recognition goes to Jerry Staul, whose fine running and blocking aided in the triumph. The alert forward wall allowed a penetration only to their own 35-yard line. OCTOBER 1 YOUNGSTOWN RAYEN 6-32 The Farrell High Night Riders bit their fourth piece of the victory pie with a 32-6 triumph over Rayen. George Keryan, running wild, scored three times and flipped a lone one to DeLise for another. After the 24-0 margin was attained, Bill Burney, Rayen fullback, took off on an 18-yard jaunt for the first score against the Night Riders. Joe Mirizio, hard-running back, came back for Farrell and scored on a 15-yard off-tackle play. Jerry Missory made the score 32-6 by tackling Burney in his own end zone, scoring a safety. OCTOBER 8 CAMPBELL MEMORIAL 0-19 To beat Campbell Memorial High School, the out-weighed Night Riders, playing on a sloppy field, had to show their superiority. A scoreless first quarter gave the game a dull start, but early in the second quarter, Bruno, after a 92-yard sustained drive, plunged over for the score to put Farrell ahead 6-0. After a fumble in the third quarter, Keryan fired a quick pass to DeLise in the end zone for another score. Paulekas’ boot made it 13-0. The final marker came when Sonoga intercepted a pass and, behind beautiful blocking, dashed 60 yards for the score. OCTOBER 15 NEW CASTLE 33-0 New Castle’s Red Hurricane, 1948 W. P. I. A. L. Champions, out-weighed and out-classed the Night Riders in their grid battle. After a scoreless first quarter, Paolone, Ne-Ca-Hi fullback, drove over for a score. Farrell came back to the two yard line, but the attack was halted, and the half ended 6-0. In the second half. Paolone scored his second, Keyes scored two more, and Sallie scored once and kicked three points making the final score 33-0.The 1948 Football Season OCTOBER 22 BEAVER FALLS 19-6 Sparked by Lou D’Achille, 1948 W. P. I. A. L. allrstar, the Beavner Fallsmen defeated the Night Riders in a close game. Midon scored first for Beaver Falls, with D’Achille scoring and kicking the point for a 13-0 lead. On a long pass from Keryan, DeLise dashed 40-yards to make the halftime score 13-6. Warstler, Beaver back, scored their third and final marker to end the game 19-6 in favor, of Beaver Falls. OCTOBER 29 ROCHESTER 14-26 Making the “Homecoming Game” a success the Night Riders, sparked again by Keryan, who passed for three scores and ran the fourth, took an early lead to win 26-14. In the first quarter, Keryan passed to Missory, DeLise, and Mancino for scores, adding an extra point to make the score 19-0. Chambers did all the scoring for the Rams on two touchdowns and two extra point plunges. After the Rams made the score 19-14, Keryan ran 30 yards to put the game on. Paulekas’ extra point made the score 26-14. Although unnoticed, the success really came from the con-sistant play of the line in blocking offensively and throwing the Rams defensively. NOVEMBER 12 SHARON 0-31 Running wild in their final game, the Night Riders posted an impressive 31-0 victory over Sharon, their traditional rivals. Keryan accounted for four of the five markers on a 20-yard dash, two plunges, and a 37-yard punt return. Patsy Abate, alert tackle, intercepted a Sharon screen pass and dashed 45 yards for the fourth touchdown. Paulekas’ point made the score 31-0. Sharon’s deepest penetration was to the Farrell 35-yard line. This victory gave the Night Riders a record of seven wins and two losses. Special recognition goes to Samuel Nicastro, Robert Lichvar, Alfred Paulekas, Donald Wojtanoski, Patsy Abate, Paul Amico, Edward Bruno, Jerry Staul, Herbert Williams, Joseph Mirizio, Frank Napolitan, Joseph DeLise, and Jerry Missory, who although outshined, played brilliant ball in the 1948 season. Terminating the season the Optimist Club honored the squad with a banquet at which Samuel Nicastro, George Keryan, and Joseph Mirizio received first, second, and third awards respectively. The Hi-Y Club also honored the squad with their annual affair by paying tribute to the squad for their fine record. John Williams of the University of Pittsburgh gave a stirring address on the “Value of Education in Relation to Athletics.” This marked the climax for the following seniors: Joseph Mirizio, George Keryan, Samuel Nicastro, Paul S. Amico, George Connor, Frank Napolitan, Edmund Sonoga, David James, Alfred Paulekas, Albert Rococi, Jerry Staul and Patsy Abate, who ended their careers with flying colors. 1948 FOOTBALL RECORD September 11 Wesleyville 0 Farrell 19 September 17 Meadville 0 Farrell 38 September 24 Vandergrift 0 Farrell 21 October 1 Youngstown Rayen 6 Farrell 32 October 8 Campbell Memorial 0 Farrell 19 October 15 New Castle 33 Farrell 0 October 22 Beaver Falls 19 Farrell 6 October 29 Rochester 14 Farrell 26 November 12 Sharon 0 Farrell 31Football First Team Line: Frank Napolitan, Donald Wojtanoski, Paul Amico, Alfred Paulekas, Co-Captain Samuel Nicastro, Robert Lichvar, Edmund Sonoga, Joseph DeLise.

Starting, the team found themselves with the first game jitters. Trying in desperation to overcome this, they fought gallantly, but the Glassers, who never relinquished defeat, held us to a single point in the third quarter. In the last quarter, the Steel era tried hard to recover but just couldn’t put in enough points to subdue the Glassers. The half time score was 16-11 in favor of the Steelers. Williams was high with nine points. Warren 31-Farrell 28:—The Farrell High Steelers seeking their first victory of the season ran into a tough quintet from Warren, Ohio. Showing much improvement over the first game, the Steelers led throughout the ball game until the last minutes of play when the Presidents came to life to score three consecutive field goals to edge the Steelers. Farrell again led at half time 11-9, but just couldn’t hold out until the final gun. Showing some wonderfully executed back court shots, Williams was high with nine points. Jeannette 33-Farrell 42:—The Farrell High Cagers, in presenting their first victory to their new Coach, Edward McCluskey, did it in a very impressive way, coming back in the second half to defeat the down staters. The Jayhawks led at half time by a score of 21-17, but the Steelers scored ten points in the third quarter to take a 27-26 lead. Delise, who captained this game, had a field day, taking high scoring honors with 17 points. “Merk” Mercurio played an excellent floor game scoring 12 points. Midland 28-Farrell 24:—After showing great finesse against the Jeannette passers, the Steelers just couldn’t find the hoops against the Middies, who were previously coached by Mr. McCluskey. But, the Middies had to go a bit to defeat the aggressive Steelers and did beat them only in the last few minutes. Har-Brac 46-Farrell 45:—Traveling to Har-Brac High School, the Steelers again showed promise for league play, but it seemed as though they couldn’t shake off their last minute “jinx”. The half time score was 21-21. The Har-Brac Five tallied with seconds remaining to defeat a highly spirited team from Farrell. Delise was high for Farrell. Youngstown 29-Farrell 38:—The unpredictable Farrell High passers, converted into a smooth moving machine, laced South High School of Youngstown before 1500 home fans. Showing no respect for a decided height advantage, the Steelers coasted through the first three quarters. The quarter scores were Farrell 12-4, 22-11, 35-15 and 38-29. Joseph Delise and Robert Juback were high scorers, scoring fourteen and twelve points respectively. Donora 40-Farrell 28:—Traveling away from home for the second time of the season, the Farrell High cagers ran into a smooth, aggressive, fast moving machine from Donora. The Dragons held the edge throughout the ball game, and the Steelers never threatened. The half ended in favor of the Dragons 21-15. Even though losing the game, the team had high spirits. New Kensington 43-Farrell 36:—The Steelers came within two and a half minutes of winning their third game of the season and stopping New Kensingston’s six game winning streak. The Steelers kept right with the down-staters, but just seemed to wilt in the last quarter when the Kensters scored 22 points. The Steelers led at half 20-15. The team was led by Joseph Delise, who scored 21 points. Duquesne 56-Farrell 27:—Showing no respect for the small squad from Farrell, the “Dukes” poured it on. The “Dukes” had a much decided height advantage and at the end of the first half, the Steelers found themselves on the short end of a 22-10 score. Though they were out-played and out-scored, the Farrell boys never gave up, even if they did end up on the short end of a 56-27 score. Joseph Delise was high for Farrell with nine points. Coach Edward McCluskeyVarsity Basketball Ellwood City 46-Farrell 44:—Ellvvood City’s fighting Wolverines uncorded a story book ending to ruin Farrell’s debut in Section III. The contest went into an overtime period with Farrell coming out on the short end. The ball game was rough throughout, with the Steelers losing three men via foul line. The half ended in our favor 20-15. The third period was still ours 33-23 and the regulation fourth period ended 41-41. At the end of the fourth quarter, a Wolverine basket, which tied the game, was protested, and the game was delayed. High for Farrell was Joseph Delise with 13 points and behind him were Edmund Sonoga and Joseph Yazvac with 9 and 7 respectively. Ambridge 46-Farrell 32:—The Bridgers dealt the Steelers their second straight defeat in a very fashionable way. The Steelers just couldn’t find the hoops against the Bridgers. The one thing they never lost was their team spirit, for they kept plugging away at the Bridgers and never lost heart. The half ended with the Bridgers away out front with a 26-11 score. Delise again was high for Farrell scoring 18 points. Beaver Fall 43-FarrelI 35:—The Farrell High Cagers tried to make a last quarter comeback on the Tiger’s court but just couldn’t make it. The Steelers were losing 35-20 at the end of the third quarter and outscored the Beaver Falls Quintet 15-8 from the floor in the last period. The half time score was 27-17 in favor of the Tribesmen. Delise was high for Farrell with 9 points followed closely by Juback with 8. Aliquippa 42-Farrell 35:—The Indians, who almost found their undefeated string of games broken, had to come back in the last quarter to beat a fighting Farrell High Five. The Steelers looked like a new ball club on the cage floor and Coach McCluskey almost had his first league win of the season along with it, but the “jinx” continued to follow the team and they faltered in the last few minutes. The Farrell High team led throughout the ball game, until the last few minutes of play. The half ended in our favor by a 21-18 score. New Castle 43-Farrell 37:—Still seeking their first Section III win of the season, the Steelers’ “jinx” continued to follow them as in the previous games. The last quarter again proved fatal to the Steelers. After maintaining a 35-28 score at the end of the third quarter, the Steelers were held to one field goal in the last quarter. The Steelers led at the half 18-17 after overcoming a first period 10-9 deficit. Delise was high for Farrell with 15 points and Reed of New Castle had 19 points. Louis Mercurio played a very good floor game. Sharon 38-Farrell 22:—The battling Bengals carved an impressive win in their traditional rivalry as they outspeeded and outsteadied the Steelers. The faulty play of both teams made the game rather slow and caused many fouls. From the start of the game, fouls seemed to come consistantly and handicapped the Steelers. All five of the starters had four personal fouls on them. Bob Juback, who was high for Farrell with 10 points, kept the team in the game in the first half, scoring four of the six points. The half ended 18-6. The third quarter opened with a bang with both teams showing speed, but this slackened off with the calling of numerous fouls. The third quarter ended 30-16 in favor of Sharon. As the final buzzer sounded, the Steelers found themselves on the short end of a 38-22 score. Monaca 43-Farrell 42:—Playing a non-league team, the Steelers stretched their losing streak to 10 straight games as the last quarter “jinx” struck again, after leading at the half, 21-16, and the end of the third quarter by 12 points, by a 37-25 score. The Monacans outscored the Steelers in the last quarter by a 18-5 count. Joe Delise was high for Farrell with 15 points and Bob Juback with 11 points took second place honors. Ellwood City 22-Farrell 44:—Coach Edward McCluskey’s patience in seeking his first W. P. I. A. L. victory as head of the Farrell High Steelers was rewarded with interest as a vengeful quintet took the floor to smother the Wolverines by a 44-22 score. The game snapped a 10 game losing streak for the Steelers, for it seemed to open the eyes of the team, and their spirit rose to great heights. Coach McCluskey shifted Marion Lampkins and Steve Butchko into the starting line up. This proved highly successful. The half ended 18-9 in the Steelers’ favor. At the end of the third period the score was 31-11, our favor. Robert Juback, Joseph Delise, Edmund Sonoga, and Steve Butchko scored eight points respectively. 68Varsity Basketball Ambridge 38-Farrell 42:—The mighty Steelers, trying desperately to regain themselves in league play, took a hard fought contest from the Bridgers. The score changed hands many times during the contest, but our boys came up on top. In the dying seconds of the regulation fourth period, it was Sonoga who scored the tying bucket to make it 37-37. In the extra period, the Steelers scored five points to the Bridgers one. Beaver Fall 41-Farrell 43:—Entertaining the Tigers, coached by former Farrell High Star Joseph Hetra, the Steelers looked as if they were finally finding themselves after a faulty first half. The Steelers gave the Fallsmen more than their share as they beat them in a double over time game. In winning this game the Steelers stretched their winning streak to three straight. The regulation four periods ended 37-37. Aliquippa 48-Farrell 25:—Coach Samuel Milanovich’s Aliquippa High School passers clinched the title of Section III of W. P. I. A. L. This was the Quips twenty-first straight win of the season. Again Mike Zernich of Aliquippa scored 20 points to take high scoring honors for the night. The first period went to Aliquippa 10-8. In the second period, the “Quips” found themselves well out in front with a commanding 21-12 lead. In the third period the “Quips” scored sixteen points to lead 37-17. Butchko again led the scoring of the Farrell cagers with nine points. New Castle 47-Farrell 63:—Led by Robert Juback, who scored 25 points, the Steelers had their best offensive night of the season. Together that night they made highest team and individual scores of the season. The first quarter score was 12-10 in favor of Farrell. The half time score was Farrell 27-21. The game was marred by numerous fouls of which Farrell took 39 treeks to the line, and New Castle took 34 for an amassed total of 73 fouls. The McCluskey men, in the last half, scored eighteen points in each period, making the third period score 45-37.

Sharon 42-Farrell 28:—Ringing down the curtain on the 1948-49 season, the Steelers found themselves in fourth place of the Sectional W. P. I. A. L. race. The opening period ended in a 12-5 score with the Tigers on the wrong side. In the second period the Steelers were held to three points. The third period followed the first game's pattern with the Farrell Cagers trying desperately to catch up. The third period ended 31-21. Joseph Delise was high man with 12 points. In their last game of the season for the Steelers, Edmund Sonoga and Louis Mercurio played a good game scoring 6 and 4 points respectively.

In defense of the W. P. I. A. L. crown, the team was built around Bencivengo, W. P. I. A. L. champion; Springer, DeVito, and Paulekas. After three weeks of rugged training, Springer and A1 Paulekas were chosen co-captains to lead the Blue and Gold grapplers against the sternest competition in VV. P. I. A. L. circles. Even though experience was lacking, the boys were more than willing to put their abilities against a seven meet mat schedule. East Liverpool 8, Farrell 26:—The Steeler matmen opened their 1949 season in an impressive fashion by topping the Potters to a tune of 26-8. Decisions were scored by Steiner, Thompson, Wedlake, Bencivengo, Springer, Vasile, Bauer, Stefanak, and Gregoroff. Paulekas registered the only fall of the meet in the 165 pound class. East Liverpool 10, Farrell 30:—Again the Steeler matmen tangled with the Potters and again emerged triumphant. Exhibitionists Steiner, Squatrito and Thompson were victors over their opponents. Wedlake, Bencivengo and Paulekas registered falls with Springer, Vasile, Bauer, Stefanak, and Kustron winning by decisions. Shady Side Academy 14, Farrell 23:—Scoring two falls and four decisions, the Farrell Grapplers won their third consecutive match over the undefeated Academy wrestlers. Bencivengo, and Paulekas pinned their men, while Wedlake, Springer, DeVito and Stefanak won by decisions. Steiner and Squatrito scored impressive victories in the exhibition matches. Charticrs 14, Farrell 30:—Winning a majority of the bouts in the lower classes enabled the F. H. S. matmen to win their first W. P. I. A. L. match of the season. Bencivengo and DeVito registered falls with Steiner, Squatrito, Wedlake, Springer and Bauer winning decisions. Paulekas, leading by a score of 3-0, won by default when Cimino, state champion, injured his ankle during the second period. Dormont 21, Farrell 22:—Traveling to Dormont the Farrell matmen eked out a 22-21 victory over Dormont. Winners were Wedlake, Bencivengo, Springer, Devito, Bauer and Paulekas. This victory gave Farrell their second W. P. I. A. L. victory and fifth straight victory of the season. Cannonsburg 39, Farrell 12:—The injury riddled Farrell High mat team had its long string of tw'enty-four victories come to an end wrhen they were unable to overcome an eighteen point deficit due to forfeits. This meet also marked the first loss at home over a period of eight years. The victors were Bencivengo, Springer, DeVito, and Kustron. Steiner, Wedlake, and Paulekas were unable to wrestle. Waynesburg 35, Farrell 17:—The Waynesburg High wrestlers proved too much for the Steelers. Farrell winners were Squatrito, Springer, DeVito, and Paulekas. Wedlake’s draw’ made Farrell’s total 17 against 35 for Waynesburg. This match terminated the 1949 season leaving Farrell with five wins and two losses. W. P. I. A. L. Tournament:—Farrell High School entered the District 7 W. P. I. A. L. tournament with nine wrestlers. Bencivengo and Steiner were unable to wrestle due to injuries. Taylor and Squatrito lost in the quarter-tfinals wThile Wedlake, Springer, DeVito, Bauer, Stefanak, Kustron, and Paulekas continued to the semi-finals. Four boys entered the finals. Of these boys Springer and Wedlake won W. P. I. A. L. championships, while DeVito and Paulekas were defeated. The team ended in third place with 20 points. P. I. A. A. State Tournament:—Thomas Springer and Russell Wedlake were the qualified wrestlers to represent Farrell in the state tournament. Both boys won victories in the quarter-finals, moving to the semi-finals of the tourney. Springer defeated Senft of West York by a score of 7-1 in a very hard fought match. Wedlake forfeited his match to Cassell of Hershey, thus dropping out of tournament action. In the most exciting match of the state tournament, Springer fought as a true champion in defeating Hoover of Tyrone by a score of 10-7. This championship made it possible for Farrell to share the state title with ten other schools. Due to the stiff competition it was the first time in state tourney wrestling that the eleven champions came from eleven different schools.
