T. l l out of bad situations and their errorless playing has been largely responsible for the victories registered so far. The veteran Art Cobb, behind the plate, has proven himself to be one of the best catchers in this district and his skill in handling the pitchers has been an important factor in the team's winning ways. - On first base, tall Lynn Hamilton is working like an old timer although this is his first year at the initial sack. His errorless playing afield and good hitting at bat marks him as a player who will bear watching in the future. Ced Wallace, the talkative second baseman, is one of the most improved players on the team and his leadership in the infield keeps the boys constantly playing heads-up ball. T The third base duties are shared by two boys. Joe Elkins handles the hot corner while not on the mound, and when Joe makes a throw to first after scooping up a hot grounder, it always gets to Lynn's mitt with plenty. of gusto. The other boy playing third is Willis Moody, a transfer from Newport. Willis is coming along nicely and has shown himself to be a capable replacement when Elkins takes the mound. At short-stop, red-headed Jess Ingram struts his stuff and there is not a faster in- fielder in this district. Jess covers lots of ground from his position and has robbed many teams of sure hits because of this speed. ' ln the outfield, sophomore Paul Alley holds down the left field garden spot and due to his promising playing this year both in the field and at bat, he is labeled as a boy to watch in the next two years. The center field spot is patrolled by Ray Ayers, a fast fielding, hard-hitting senior letterman. Ray has one of the strongest throwing arms seen on any fielder this year and very few teams try to get extra bases when Ray has the ball. The right field iob is handled by three boys-Don Ellis, Tony Solberg, and Dick Hewett. Because of his power at bat, Don plays in right field when not pitching, but when he is on the mound, the right field iob is capably take care of by Tony and Joe. Both are equal in playing ability and although this is the first year of varsity baseball for both boys, they are doing a swell iob. A Other boys who have seen action but are not necessarily starters as yet are Denny Canny, reserve catcher and outfielder, Ron Cox, reserve outfielder, Don Brown, reserve outfielder, and Elmer Fields, reserve infielder. The Lebanon Warriors rank as one of the leading teams in the state and at the present time are on top in district play and should they finish the seasorf in this po- sition it will be the third district championship annexed by Coach Bud Page's boys this year. The scores of games already played and the remaining season's schedule is as follows: Lebanon 5 - Dallas O Lebanon I7 -Junction City O Lebanon 25 - Junction City O May l l - Albany at Lebanon May l5 - Dallas at Dallas May l8 - Sweet Home at Lebanon May 22 - Albany at Lebanon Lebanon 8 - Corvallis' 2 Lebanon 3 - Corvallis l Lebanon 9 - Eugene l If yi Lebanon 7 - Sweet Home 2 May 25 - Eugene at Eugene My X' , ' .bij - E Alffiib- : I L L L 1---4 X--- 'Z-if ZTLLYIIQLL .- - il X J Lx V Xe, " .L -VY -""" E 'if L :I It ,X 'X ,-in ,six .Vi -:qu-lik ..,?.l 7 Y -id--J. jj '- -,....-1 , L ll BEN if C s YK- . fr ' --. li..-----U - -- A- 332 - f- L i L - .....-.---- ff--

The i945 edition of the Lebanon High baseball team is one of the best that has been seen around here in recent years, At the time of this writing, although the War- riors still have five scheduled games to play, the team is undefeated, having won seven consecutive 'games A highlight of the season has been the superlative pitching of veteran Don Ellis, and Joe Elkins, ace Junior chucker. ln the seven games played thus far this SGGSOH, these two boys have permitted the opposing teams to gather only l6 hits. ln one game against Junction City, which the locals won l7-O, Don and .loe combined their pitching efforts and hurled a no-hit, no-run game, an achievement rarely accomplished in base- ball. A total of 85 opposing batters have gone down swinging at the curves and fast balls of Lebanon's two pitchers and this mark should go well over lOO before the com' pletion of the season. Both boys are also heavy hitters and lead the Warriors in this department of the game, Although Lebanon's pitchers have done an excellent iob on the mound, they have received wonderful support from their teammates both in the field and at bat. The snappy, vociferous infield has more than once helped the pitchers

l l Hamilton, Cox, Cobb, Baldwin, Houghton, Wallace, Brown, Ward, Hewett Zmfedall The Lebanon Warriors carried on in basketball where they left off in football, and the hoopsters enioyed as successful a season as did the gridsters who preceded 55 .X-I, at 5 s 2' N x l gf 9 yi l them. The Lebanon team put a stop to the domination of the Corvallis Spartans as I y leaders in-District 7, and the completion of district play found the local boys on top with , the Spartans in second place. In the playoffs with Newberg, district 8 winners, the Q P! , Warriors dropped two games 27 to 35 and 25 to 33 and were thus kept out of the state g l tournament. V Although the Lebanon team did not represent this district in the tournament at Salem, the boys did boast a record comparable to any team at Salem. The Warriors L 'X emerged victorious in 17 games out of a tough 24-game schedule, and scored a total of 884 points to 731 for the opponents. The red clad local team employed a fast breaking style of offense which proved to be both interesting and exciting to watch I from the spectators' viewpoint, and the local gym was always filled to capacity for the rf many thrilling games played at home. " . At the completion of the season, Coach Bud Page awarded the varsity "L" to lO 'l vf, members of this championship ball club and each boy was, in his own right, an asset to , ' 'lf the basketball team. Cedric Wallace, captain and forward, led his team brilliantly l 411, and his steadying influence was an important factor in the team's success. Ced was ' ll truly a fine captain and his always consistent type of play will be sorely missed l pf NJ- 'f'T" t I ales. s if M T --4:-.ba Zi X-'X . , . . 1 XT Ni 'n'7T?1".f5-,,qgsi'm' q':"'q1' Y' ',j3'11lllf - ': i,,,..,Ll. . ,--- A-M" v- I, 1 vu be f s Q a - , e AM, , H ,mike .. il 57 ,il 1 SC .
