The l945 Lebanon High School football team again proved
to be one of the best in the Willamette Valley and gained state'
wide recognition for its prowess, The Warriors placed second in Tri-
County League competition and completed the season with 6 wins,
and 2 losses. This year's team played before the largest crowds
ever gathered on Newport Field and the wide open style of play
displayed by the crimson and blue was definitely a crowd pleaser.
Starting out with only 9 lettermen, Coach Bud Page molded
together a team that could be ci credit to any school. Led by ver'
satile Jess Ingram, captain and left halfback, and aided by the
capable blocking and passing of Ron Cox, leftvhanded passer de
p ,,, luxe, and powered by a strong line, the Warriors gave a display
of football that left many opponents on the short end of the score after 48 minutes of
play. The line was anchored by big George Fowler, 235-pound center, and he was
aided on each side by Bud Goold, watch-charm guard, and Denny Marvin, the hard-
hitting line backer who gave so many opposing ball carriers a rough time with his vicious
tackling. Lonnie Davis at one tackle, gave a good account of himself for his first year
of football, and his teammate, Gay Baldwin, at the other tackle position, proved to be
one of the most aggressive tackles in the Tri-County League. Lebanon had two ends
who were without a peer in the Tri-County League. Kenny Houghton opened the way
for many a touchdown gallop with his blocking ability, and at the other end Lynn
Hamilton gained outstanding recognition for his consistent defensive work as well as
handling all the punting for the team. Dick Hobbs gave Aa good account of himself at
the quarterback position in his first year at that spot and Bob Downing, a newcomer at
the fullback iob, showed that he could handle the position very capably.
Reserve backfield men who gained outstanding recognition included, Paul Alley,
swivel-hipped halfback who saw almost as much action as the regulars and was a con-

Lebanon High School turned out one of the best basketball teams during the l945-
'46 season that the school has ever seen. For the second consecutive year the crimson
and blue won the District 7 championship and then went on to place 4th in the state
tournament held in Salem. For this achievement, the high school has another trophy
to add to the trophy case and it is one the school is iustly proud to claim. Many coaches
and critics claimed the Warriors to be the best basketball team in the state playoffs,
and a few breaks the right way would undoubtedly have seen Lebanon in the champion-
To start the season Coach Bud Page had five lettermen on hand including Lynn
Hamilton, Ron Cox, Gay Baldwin, Kenny Haughton and Dick Hewett, plus letterman
transfer Orbra Abbott from Sweet Home. Brought up from last year's "B" squad were
Paul Alley, Elmer Fields and Bob Ackeret, all promising hoopsters. Jerry Toole, a
transfer from Eugene, joined the squad at mid-season and completed the champion
ship IO-man squad.
In pre-season play the Warriors seemed off stride and won only three out of eight
games played. However, as soon as league play started after the first of the year,
the boys began their winning ways and proved beyond a doubt that they were going
to be heard from before the season ended. On the night of March l the Warriors
downed the Sweet Home Huskies 37 to 25 and won the right to represent District 7 in
the state tournament. lt was a goal the hard working squad had set their eyes on
early in the year, and when the honor was achieved there were many happy and ioyful
