133 The Spvrw Yfear Although at the time the Orenda goes to press our sports parade is not yet completed, Lamar is continuing to bring prestige in every athletic division. Lamar's State Finalist football team, won the City Crown for the third successive year, making Lamar the first school to accomplish this feat. The highly polished Indians battled through eleven games with only a tie marring their record. They met their only defeat in the Big City Finals. Lamar placed four boys on the All-City team. The Indians made a defensive record unequaled this year by any other Houston squad. The offensive prowess and speed will be long remembered by their opponents and fans. At the banquet All-City Bill Chanslor and All-State George Pontikes were elected co-captains of the '48 eleven. The speedy Lamar cagers finished the regular basketball season deadlocked in second place with San Jacinto. They missed the opportunity to represent Houston in the Big City Championship games by losing the play-off series with the Bears. Hardly a game was decided by more than five points. Each was a thriller from the initial jump to the final gun. The highlight of the season was the Jaycees Tournament, which won for Lamar two large trophies. The interesting style demonstrated by the Redskins brought many crowds to the Public School "Gym." George Pontikes and Don Olsen were elected co-captains of the '48-'49 season. Managers Charles Heyer and Porter Johnson were great helpers and an inspiration to the team. Since Spring Sports have just started it will be hard to predict the outcome. The Lamar track team, braced by lettermen Gerhardt Schulte and Sam Hamilton, captains of the '49 squad, will try to make it the third district crown in as many years. Bobby Brodnax, Claude Hooton, Dudley Epps, Benny Hood, George Buckstaff, Richard Black, and other lettermen will attempt to pace the swimming team to the third State Championship. The golfers, stalwarted by Don Addington, Bernard Riviere, Floyd Addington, and Bob Moncrief, are hoping to get past the winner-up spot in state-a spot they reached last year. This season both the tennis team and the baseball team are looking forward to the prospect of adding many laurels to those already won by the Lamar Indians.
