Girls' Basketball was a fine combination of
good playing and sportsmanship this year. It is
not without a feeling of regret that we realize
that we will not have basketball for girls in
this county next year. The standing of the
highest teams was doubtful until the last game
of tournament, when Alexandria triumphed to be-
come Champions, putting Hebron in second place,
Toboso in third, and Summit finishing fourth.

Football was again up to its high level as a
major sport in Licking County this year. Six
schools were contending for the Licking County
Championship, and two other schools were par-
ticipating, one of them for the first time.
The Granville Blue Aces won the championship
by the Dickinson Rating System. Granville had a
large and fast-team and lost only two games all
season: the opening game to an out-of-the-county
school, Mechanicsville, by a lg-7 score, and to
Alexandria by a 9-15 score. 'Granville averaged
better than 20 points per game while holding
their opponents to less than six.
Johnstown had the same ranking as Granville,
but lost out on the championship by losing to
Granville by the score of 19-O. Johnstown later
defeated Alexandria, who gave Granville their
only defeat in the county. Johnstown defeated
Pataskala during the season, but Pataskala was
not contending for the championship, because they
did not play every other school in the county.
Alexandria, the only team to defeat Granville
ended up in third place by losing to Johnstown
and being tied by Hartford.
Hartford had a very large and powerful team,
but seemed to lack the necessary drive when need-

Utica had a season record of one victory and
four defeats. From a victory point of view Utica
did not have a very successful season, but great
things can be expected from them for next year.
Hebron, the smallest school in the county
which was contending for the championship, ended
the season with five official defeats. They are
to be congratulated in carrying on through out
the year and playing their full schedule.
ataskala played six games this year, winning
two, losing three and tying one. But they did not
figure in the championship because they did not
play Granville. Next year they will be back with
an improved team.
Hanover inaugurated football for the first
time this year. They only played two games, both
of which were with the Reserve team of Hartford.
with a year or so of experience it looks like
Hanover might become a potent factor in Licking

'GRANVILLE - CHAIPIONS
This season found the tournament returned to
Denison University where it was originated by
Walter J. Livingston in 1922. While the attend-
ance fell off thus reducing receipts, yet all
were pleased with the courtesy extended the
participating teams by the University. An East-
West series of games following the tournament
helped to fill our depleted coffers.
Using the Dickinson System to determine the
county championship, Granville won with ease
turning in an index number of 26.36. Granville
also made a good record in the District tournament.
Summit took second place with an index number of
21.25, while Johnstown and Utica tied for third
place with 20.58 each. A11 four teams represented
the county in the District.
