"10:20. 10:21, 10:22 . . This was the familiar sound that greeted Harlem’s spirited cross country runners as they streaked over the finish line at the end of each grueling two-mile marathon.
Under the capable direction of Coach Delbert Nicklaus, the varsity harriers completed a challenging schedule of 18 meets over a 7-wcek period.
Toward the end of the season, Harlem took sixth place in the City Meet and captured 7th place in the Big Eight Conference. In the Big 8 sophomore competition, Dennis McKinney took individual honors with a time of 10:39.
In dual meets, Harlem won two of eight as the)- outran Beloit at Rock Cut and Belvidcre on the Bucs’ home course. The Belvidcre encounter featured a 1-2 finish by Harlem’s Bob Hinshaw and Dennis McKinney, with times of 10:01 and 10:09 respectively, but it was a team effort that was responsible for the victory.
Prior to most varsity dual contests, a group of Harlem’s 8th through 14th fastest runners competed in a junior varsity meet and compiled a season record of 4 wins and 2 losses.
In the season finale. Bob Hinshaw, who later was elected Most-Valuablc-Playcr by his team-mates, paced the harriers to a 13th place finish in the District Meet at Crystal Lake.
Varsity runners who won major letters in cross country this season included: Bob Hinshaw, Dennis McKinney, Karl Johnson. Dick Hockison. Donald Vaughan, Brad Drake, David McEleney, and Rich Greene. Three others who also ran on the varsity at times were Jay Peterson, George Bachr, and Terry Maddrell.

Sophomore football, "the little game before the main attraction” was well worth the extra hour and a half on Friday nights. The pups’ formidable attack far outclassed that of the other Big Fight sophomore teams, and Harlem won five of their eight games, tying one, and losing to only Guilford and Freeport.
Coaches Phillips and Sundstedt did a fine job with the sophomores this year, as they moulded linemen and backs from three separate Junior Highs into a smooth functioning, hard hitting team.
The highlight of the pups’ season was the game against Harlem’s traditional rival. Harvard, in which the sophomores cheated the Hornets out of any score and defeated them 20 to 0.
Another unforgettable game was against Belvidcrc. The fighting Bucs held our pups scoreless for three quarters, and gained 19 points for themselves. In the fourth, however, the sophs battled their way to a 19-19 tic.
Next year’s Varsity and J.V. teams can expect experienced players.
