Congratulations go to Mr. Smolka and his team
for their excellent record this year. Let's hope they
keep up the good work.
Mr. Smolka has the following comments about
the team: 'EThis year's Freshman Basketball team
proved that basketball games can be won by a
team with smaller players than their opposition.
Jefferson played almost every game against
teams superior to them in height, but the desire to
win and good team play brought a winning sea-
son. A team that plays together wins together and
that is what this year's Freshman squad proveclf,

When asked for comments, coach Ron Butcher
replied, "Our record this year was the worst in
four years, but the team improved a lot during the
season. The boys played well on defense, but were
lacking in height for rebounding. Offensively,
the ball handling was good, but the shooting was

boys should make fine Varsity players in the fu-

JLI ICR HIGH BASKETB LL TE
From Eve to seven each evening the gym re-
sounded to the tune of rubber-soled shoes and
bouncing basketballs. The Junior High basketball
team was practicing. This group is composed of
those boys in the seventh and eighth grades who
have a desire to participate in sports.
The object of this team is to promote an inter-
est in basketball and to help these boys learn the
basic fundamentals of the game.
Our Junior High team is not extremely tall but
one of good ability and high potential for the fu-
ture years. Though the team boasts only a Five
win and nine loss record their coach, Mr. Floyd
Proctor states that they played considerably better
than the records show. The team lost many of
their games by only one or two points.
Mr. Proctor has been coaching for Hve years
and has been working with the Junior High team
for the past two years. He is very pleased with the
teamls progress and feels they had a good season.
Future success to this young team and we hope
that they may bring many honors from the realm
of basketball to our school. Congratulations, boys
for a Fine season.
