BASKETBALL When basketball sign-up was held last Decem- ber approximately 75 boys signed up for the four weight teams including the championship H9 teams that graduated in February. These five teams were ably coached by Mr. Corley and Mr. Berry. Garfield ' s teams had an unusual season, but they only won one championship, that which was won by the unlimited team from Willard and Bur- bank. The four Garfield teams ran up a total of 563 points against all opposition. The 95 ' s didn ' t have a particularly successful season in games won and lost, but they had a scrappy team and showed a lot of spirit. The first game which they played, Willard won by a score of 28-7. Then at Garfield, Burbank beat them by 27-13. Willard came up to Garfield to win by 45-3. For the last game of the season our 95 ' s traveled to Burbank to play their best game, even though they were on the short end of the score, 31-20. From the experience they gained they will undoubtedly make fine material for the heavier weight teams next year. The 105 ' s had a good team and a very tough season after losing a couple of very close games that could have gone either way. The first game was the closest game of the season. After the regular playing time had ended the score was 24-24, so overtime had to be played and Willard eked out a 26-24 victory. In the next game played at Burbank, Garfield lost by a score of 22-1 6. Gar- field then traveled to Willard where they lost a well-played game 26-16. In the last game of the season the 1 05 ' s were defeated by Burbank 27- 23. Besides these league games they downed Val- lejo twice by scores of 27-6 and 26-18. The 1 1 5 ' s had a veteran team that couldn ' t seem to break into the win column. Since Burbank was without a 115 team, Willard was the only opposition and they came up with a very strong team. In the first of four games with Willard, Garfield lost a well-played game by a score of 45-34. Garfield was jinxed by Willard this year and lost the remaining three games. They played St. Mary ' s in two very close games and lost by scores of 20-14 and 21-17. The 11 5 ' s also played San Ramon who were beaten soundly by the score of 20-12. The unlimiteds had a highly successful season while following in the footsteps of a strong High Nine team which preceded them. Garfield didn ' t start out so well because they dropped the first game to Willard. Then Burbank was trounced by Garfield 38-25. After a week ' s rest the Garfield quintet got revenge as they took Willard into camp 37-27. Next on the list was another defeat of Burbank on their home court. This threw the league into a tie between Garfield and Willard. So a play-off game was arranged at Burbank. The game was decided in the third quarter when Garfield pulled away, and afterwards became the city champs. Garfield played numerous out- side games, of which they won five out of eight. Among some of the teams they played were Pied- mont B ' s, Herbert Hoover, St. Mary ' s, San Ramon, and Vallejo. Some of the boys on this year ' s team are looking forward to senior high school and in a year or so you will undoubtedly see their names on the Berkeley High varsity. SOFTBALL This year softball got under way as the differ- ent grades selected teams for the grade play-offs. As they did last spring, the present High Nines won over the strong Low Nine team in a couple of hard-fought games. Almost the same High Nine team that won the city championship last year started the play-offs. This team looks much strong- er than at any time earlier. The new and surpris- ingly strong High Eight team has a good chance in the city ' s league. This team is fast moving and hard hitting and could come out on top. Dick Huish. BASEBALL As baseball season opens at Garfield there is a hopeful look on the faces of our two coaches, Mr. Corley and Mr. Berry. They have divided the large turnout of 104 boys into five independent teams each with a chance to capture the cham- pionship of three leagues. VARSITY Everyone on this team has improved consid- erably from last year. The pitchers have good control, and with fielding such as the infield has done at practice, should win a large majority of their games. The hitting and fielding of the out- fielders is steadily improving but they need prac- tice. It looks as though this team, as a whole, is as good, if not better, than last year ' s winning team. JUNIOR VARSITY This team has been divided into two separate squads. Powerful hitters and good fielders are present on both teams. The arms of the pitchers are proving to be fast and should be a great as- set. The outfield is moving faster and should be in good shape by the first league game. MIDGETS The smallest of Garfield ' s baseball teams looks forward to a successful year. The future Varsity always has tough competition, but plenty of fight- ing spirit. Most of these athletes find the baseball diamond too large for their younger arms. Hitting is sure to improve as the season g%ts under way. With the experience these players are to receive this term they ought to develop into next year ' s outstanding players. Dick Huish.
