M SOFTBALL TEAM Row One, L. to R.-B. Cooper, T. Leedom, N. Edgington, E. Dumm, L. Uhrig, M Mendenhall, D. Robinson, W. Shull. Row Two-C. Alexander, K. Ralston, T. Depugh, B. Johnson, B. McCarty, N. Uhrig R. Kellough, J. Darst, Mr. Hurd, coach. SOFTBALL 1953-54 When the call for softball was given in the fall, forty-two boys turned out. The squad was divided and Mr. Orr assisted Mr. Hurd by taking the underclassmen in a separate group. The infield developed rapidly, and with an experienced outfield and excellent pitching, the flow of operation became very simple. Our task was to develop a defensive ball club and work every spare moment on developing the batting eyes once the defense was set. As a tribute to the efforts of the group, in four consecutive league games, only seven runs were scored against us, the highlight being a shutout of Buckskin. Neil Uhrig, sophomore, did a beautiful pitching job every game. He had three two-hitters and one one-hit game. Johnson caught well his first year and Captain Ernie Dumm was a tower of strength at shortstop and at the plate. Ernie's position will be hard to fill, as will be the positions vacated by seniors McCarty in center and Kellough in left. Burns, Robin- son, and Ralston also will be missed. During the season we had six double plays, a fine defensive display. Southeastern, with a three year veteran team, beat us in the finals by close scores. We took second place and won a swell trophy. The names are engraved on it in the trophy case. Having filled most key positions with underclassmen, Huntington should win FIRST place in 1954. Congratulations, Boys!

The Junior High Basketball Team ended the season with a 9-5 record. They met Centralia in the play-off game to decide the county champs. After winning this game they won over Beaver but lost by one point to Circleville in the West Fifth Tournament. We are proud of the Ross County Champions and we expect great things from them in the coming years.

Row One, L. to R.-B. Johnson, N. Uhrig, Mr. Hurd, coach, N. Edgington, R. McCarty. Row Two-T. Depugh, B. Burns, D. Robinson, E. Taylor, L. Uhrig, M. Davidson. BASKETBALL 1953-54 No team probably ever played as many close games in one season and lost, as Huntington did this year. This was to be expected in view of the fact that seven county clubs were studded with seniors of two or three years experience. Huntington had only two regulars from the previous season, McCarty and Robinson. Underclassmen were selected mainly who offered to have possibilities of bringing outstanding basketball to Hunt- ington by another season, if not right now. Lacking height for backboard control, the boys had to be developed in man-for-man defense and press at half court to steal the ball rather than wait and get it off the board. Hours of practice were spent mainly developing defensive technique to tie into a fast break. Though the record doesn't show it, every game played this season was a thriller except the first game with Centralia and the first half with Clarksburg. Who can forget the night we scored 14 points the first half against Clarksburg and 56 the second half? Someone, shall we say, "Teed Off?" At any rate, the man-for-man and fast break boosted our average points per game to 58. This is really nice going. Mainly contributing to this offensive record was Neil Uhrig, who was, believe it or not, high point man in the county with 230 points. Congratulations Neil for that and also for making the first all county team selections. May your next two years, as well as other sophomore and junior regulars, be even better. Seniors Robinson and McCarty will definitely be missed. These boys were hard workers, good sports, and played for the love of the game. Bob McCarty was honored for his sportsmanship, when he received the award for Huntington at the tournament. Burns also opened the stops on the floor. Thanks, fellows, for some real thrilling basketball at Huntington this year. C. O. Hurd, Coach
