experience. However, this deficiency was made up for in lighting spirit. The greater number
of games were not chalked up as victories for Gilbert, but the team never once lost that
all-important trait of teamwork. Too much credit cannot be given to the players for the
undaunted way in which they have upheld the school tradition of clean sportsmanship.
