Vllll Ill m PICAYUNE m at the half standing 16 to 8. Catlin was not to be outdone and came back strong and played H. H. S. to a stand still, but when the final gun sounded the score showed that Catlin was nosed out by a one point margin. Hoopeston's superior playing in the first half had won them victory. H. H. S., 243 Oakwood, 10 Our second game was with Oak- wood and again H. H. S. proved su- perior. Oakwood played a hard game the first half and it ended 9 to 2 in favor of Hoopeston. The hard after- noon game began to tell on Oakwood and Coach Brasel's cage squad piled up a large score. This allowed him to remove some of his regulars and give them a good rest for the next game. By winning this game we entered the semi-finals, our opponent being the strong East Lynn five. H. H. S., 263 East Lynn, 17 Hoopeston had been beaten by this team three times this season, but Coach Brasel's team was now work- ing to perfection, and needed this game to enter the finals. The game started fast with Hoopeston sinking the first basket. Hoopeston was then never headed and held the lead throughout the game. From the start until the finish Hoopeston took East Lynn by surprise, and our players were always breaking up East Lynn's plays before they got under way. The Hoopeston players came back on the fioor in the second half determined to hold the lead and, with each member of the squad playing his best game of the season, ended the winning streak of the county champs. This was one of the cleanest and best played games of the tournament. H. H. S., 83 Danville, 8 Danville was doped to win the tour- nament and they had little difficulty in defeating our worn out team. The Hoopeston players seemed tired from the afternoon's game with East Lynn and were unable to hit their usual stride. Danville took the lead from the start and held it throughout. Hoopeston's plucky little five, know- ing they were playing against odds, came back in the second half deter- mined to fight. Hoopeston fought an uphill battle throughout, but the scrappy little players always had the old H. H. S. fighting spirit. Coach Brasel used several formations to win, but Danville's lead was too great.

S. are looking forward to a successful season in all branches of athletics. We should have one of the most sucessful seasons in years be- cause in all branches of athletics there is a complete squad of letter men left. The basketball squad seems to have the best chance for a cham- pionship team, only two regulars be- ing lost. Other schools in the county lose a number of star performers, and, while new teams are being formed at these schools, our coach will have prkactically his same basketball team e t. The football team should do won- ders again next season, there being eleven letteri men left. Captain Bell and Cardiff will be the only men left in the backfield and around these an- other backfield will have to be formed. Captain Bell plays a halfback posi- tion and is one of the best backsin the county, while Cardiff will handle the team at the quarter position. Nelson and Duley have been devel- oped -into a great pair of fiankmen Page Thirty-Nine Llml lmm

HJ IND E E ter ruling, he was ineligible at the end of the first semester and his absence somewhat weakened the team for the tournaments. Glenn Bell-Guard Bell, playing his second year of basketball, p l a y e d sensationally throughout the season. His close guarding was a feature in most of the games played. He proved his ability in guarding when he held players of the opposing teams from scoring as much as they usually did. He played a good brand of ball in both tourna- ments and was a main factor in the team's success. He is only a junior and will be back again next year to help put the fighting spirit into the squad. Tate Duley-Center Tate is captain of next year's five, and was one of the outstanding play- ers in the county. His height makes him an ideal player to break up the opposing team's formations and he proved this in many games this sea- son. His all-around playing in the district tournament won him a posi- tion on the first all-district team. He is fast and has a good eye for basket shooting, which will make him a very valuable man next year. He will make an ideal leader and with a complete team of experienced men should come through with a first class team. Scott In gle-Forward "Scottie" played an evenly balanced game throughout the season. He was our main scoring threat, always get- ting his share of the points. He played good ball in both tournaments and scored heavily against the strong- est teams. He was lightning fast, could dribble, pivot and shoot with the same ability. He was another of the squad that was named on the all- district team. He is a senior and his loss will be felt when next year's squad starts practice. ' Raymond Cooper-Forward "Bill" also is only a junior and will Page Thirty-Eight be with the team again next year. He played regularly during the second semester and proved he was a basket- ball star. The game was not new to him either, because he had been on the squad the year before. He is small but has the speed and ability to evade the best of guards. He is a point getter and always had several baskets to his credit when the game was over. The Subs Robert Welty-Center "Bob" played in several games dur- ing the season and showed his "stuff" He is fast and has a good eye for shooting, which will make him a valuable man next year. In several of the games he played, a large share of the scoring was done by him. He knows the game and will see more service on the hard Wood next season. Harold Davis-Guard Davis, a sophomore, saw service in several games and was developed in- to a good player. He has the speed and size and a fairly good eye for shooting. He also will be a valuable man to have next season. Buryl Cardiff-Forward Buryl, another sophomore, played in enough games to win a letter. He is a player determined to win, and puts the fight into the team. With a little more weight he should have a good season next year. ' "A good substitute is as valuable as a regular."-Brasel. THE DISTRICT TOURNAMENT H. H. S., 22g Catlin, 21 Hoopeston played the strong Catlin five in her first game of the tourna- ment. The Catlin team had made a strong bid for supremacy in the coun- ty, but dope was now favoring H. H. S. The game started fast with Hoopeston taking an early lead. It looked as if Hoopeston would have an easy time defeating them, the score Ull nmim-L21

l lllEiCg..LflllDim lH and, with Welty capable of handling either end, this department will not be weak. A good pair of guards have been developed from Reed and Stan- ley and both will be a great aid to the team next season. The Davis brothers are capable of handling the tackle positions, or either can be moved to the backfield if this depart- ment is weak. Endsley played in several games and he will hold down the center position. Merritt was used in the line in several games this season, and probably will be used there again next season. There were other men that looked promising and several of them will be seen in action. The cage squad will be a strong contender for honors next season, only two regulars being lost by grad- uation. Nelson, captain of this year's team, will be back again at his favor- ite position, and should have another successful season. Duley, the lanky center, also has played two seasons on the squad and around him a great number of the plays Will start. Bell has played a steady game the past two years and, with him back, the old fighting spirit will not be lacking. Cooper, the fourth of the two-year letter men, should also have another succesful season. He is small, but his speed, along with his basket shoot- ing, has made him a valuable man. Welty, Cardif, and Davis played enough games to win a letter and each will be a valuable man next sea- son. A number of the above mentioned athletes are capable of winning a position on the track squad, and sev- eral will be working for honors along this line. More interest is being taken in track each season and H. H. S. will win honors in this sport as in others. l SENIOR LETTER MEN The athletes in the class of '26 are the first that have been four years under the coaching of Glenn D. Brasel. Now he sees several athletes that he has started taken from him by graduation. Each year there are athletes lost by graduation and this breaks up many a good team. This year not as many athletes are lost as in the past few years, but still they all played important parts in ath- letics. There will be seven letter men lost this year. Some of these men probably have finished their athletics and will start work, while others will undoubtedly participate in different branches of college athletics. Those who will be taken by grad- uation are: Creamer, captain of the 1925 gridironers, who played a back- field position, guard on the cage squad and dashman on track team, Ingle, quarterback, forward on cage squad, captain of 1926 track team, Leach, guard on football squad, dashman on track team, Musson, tackle on foot- ball squad, Vines, center position on football squad, Carlson, sub tackle, and Prickett, track squad. These are athletes whose places will be hard to fill next year and they will be greatly missed. We hope their places will be filled with men of the same caliber, and that the same coach who has developed so many stars at Hoopeston will be with them. TRACK The county track meet was held at Georgetown May 1 with eleven schools fighting for honors. Westville won the meet after a hard battle with Georgetown and East Lynn. Hoopes- ton did not score the points that were expected, but showed strength in the relay, placing second. Members of the squad who won places are: 100 yd. Dash .................... Welty, third Page Forty 50 yd. Dash ..................... Welty, third 880 yd. Dash ..................... Reed, third Pole Vault ................. Capt. Ingle, first High Jump ..... .. Capt. Ingle tied for third 220 yd. Hurdles ................ Vines, fourth The relay team with Leach, Reed, Daughters and Welty running true to form, took second honors after a hard race with Westville. The record that was established in 1925 was not equal- ed or broken in this year's race. -l lt' lr--4' il" Iii'- iff ry! :Lv I 1 IE? lil ' Tj i iz Cr . ,fa 'ii' . l fi ELS ul?
