OR the past three years Tech has held the supremacy of the cinder
Nw paths. With this showing as an incentive, the team has been striv-
ing to set a record-breaking pace for the other schools to follow.
With the new Tech and its fine athletic field fast becoming a reality,
it is hard to predict whether or not the future teams Will surpass those
that have been before. To train under the extreme difficulties that are
now encountered seems to build up a determination to win in each and
every contest. One of the chief worries of Tech's personnel seems to be
whether the traditional Tech spirit will or will not die at the birth of the
Greater Tech. If the life of this prominent factor can be insured, then
our school may well be certain of a championship team in at least one or
more of the branches of athletics.
Although, only Captain Blackistone and a hurdler, Blandford, remain
from last year's team, judging by the performance up to date, we are con-
fident of having another championship team..
Every day we may see Coach Hardell putting his charges through
their respective paces. He does this with a sureness and precision only
acquired through deep and thoughtful study of athletics and the athlete.
So when such a combination of fine coaching and good material is found,
we may rest assured that, barring accidents, a championship team will be
the resu t.

HE team of 1926 was decidedly victorious and is to be commended
,WA for its fighting spirit, teamwork, and clean, hard playing. Some of
' the handicaps which the team has had to undergo in the past years
were removed when, through the kindness of the Washington Baseball
Club, the team was granted the use of the Griffith Stadium for training
Although the first two practice games were lost to Episcopal High
School and Baltimore City College, it was there that the "Tech fighting
spirit" was fully aroused. This traditional Tech quality enabled the team
to crash through the inter-scholastic series without a defeat on its record.
Our able football mentors, "Hap" Hardell and his assistant, Warren
Spencer, cannot be praised too much for their untiring efforts, patience,
and strategy throughout the football season. We are proud to state that
Coach Hardell's teams have lost only one inter-high game during his entire
period of coaching at Tech. We sincerely hope that his record will con-
tinue without another blemish during the coming seasons.
In tying for the championship with Western High School, the team
won two games and tied two of the total series games. Tech scored more
points than all the other High Schools combined.

out for a month and fast progiess had been made toward the team
co-ordination. For the first time in years a captain had to be chosen
by the coach, due to the graduation of all the letter men of last year's team.
Chester Mills, a promising player of last season's nine, was selected to
bear this responsibility. In the primary practices and games, Coach Glenn
was systematically building up the weak points in his slugging nine. In
this work Mr. Glenn is well fitted, having been a star in the minor leagues
for a considerable time. This valuable and practical training has fully
established his ability as a producer of winning teams.
At first sight it appeared that the coach had lacked experienced play-
ers, however, he had a wealth of material from which he selected his
choices, since no less than sixty candidates, aspiring for berths on the
varsity team came out for the early spring training. There was such
keen competition for these places that the last cut in the squad was no
Manager Georgens arranged a schedule of thirteen games with local
freshmen and prep school teams by which our nine can get in shape for
the inter-scholastic series.
