Ir .j ATHLETICS Athletics at Muskegon Heights High was dealt a severe blow in 1951 with the announcement that the Southwest- ern Athletic Conference was to be disbanded at the end of the 1951-52 season.

RESERVE FOOTBALL The Reserve team, under the coaching of David McKenzie and Larry Schaude, had a good year, winning 5, tying 2, and losing one which "ended them up" in second place in the Conference. linxed by Mus- kegon for the past four years, it was Mus- kegon again who tied the Little Tigers, and kept them from first place honors.

Catholic 14 The Tigers showed great strength against a powerful Grand Rapids eleven which went on to overpower all its opponents. Winicki scored the Tiger touchdown early in the first quarter when the Tiger line nailed the Catholic punter on the goal line. Catholic was named the best team in the state for l952 by one of the leading newspapers, Tigers 27. G. R. Creston 13 The Tigers bounced back after a tough first half to overpower the Polar Bears in a hard fought, hard won victory. Bernie Winicki was the Tiger standout, lashing into the Creston line for three touchdowns. Tigers 0, Holland 0 The Tigers showed a complete reversal of form in this battle with twice beaten Holland. Although Bernie Winicki twice led the Tigers deep in Dutch territory, the Orange and Black didn't seem to have the scoring punch neces- sary for winning. Winicki, who handled the ball over 40 times for 150 yards was the standout player on the field. Tigers 26, Union 6 The Tigers of Okie Iohnson pulled off one of the State's biggest upsets by blasting a fourth-rated Union team 26 to 6, Keith Pohl scored twice, and Winicki and Phillips each collected one for the Tigers. Tigers 6, Kalamazoo 7 The Tigers faced the invasion of a strong, determined Kalamazoo team and lost by the score of 7 to 6. After trailing at the half, the Tigers ended a 60 yard third period drive with Winiclci scoring. Pohl, Winicki and Marion led the Tigers.

Bernie Winicki tallied twice for the Tigers, one with only 45 seconds left in the game, as he sped 47 yards with the pigskin on the game's last play. The Tigers had another tally which was called back on a penalty. Tigers 0, Benton Harbor 0 By holding the fast Benton Harbor outfit to a scoreless deadlock the Tigers not only Won a big moral victory, but also proved they had a strong defensive team. Winicki and Marion stood out for the Heights in this second scoreless deadlock for these old rivals in the last 4 encounters. Tigers 25, Hazel Park 6 Playing under the most adverse conditions imaginable, the snarling proteges of "Okie" Iohnson racked up their fourth victory of the season by smashing the Detroit team 25 to 6. Despite the blizzard, Murray, Winicki, Marion, and Ken Plichta all scored for the Tigers. The game was marked with the presenta- tion of Silver Anniversary gifts to "Okie" and "Mac." Tigers 6, Muskegon 26 Our Tigers became the only team in the Southwestern Conference to score against the Muskegon Big Reds. Despite this fact, the Tigers were outclassed by the resulting Associated Press State Champions 26-6. Bernie Winicki scored the only Tiger touchdown which was set up by a blocked punt. Out- standing for the Tigers in this Conference game were Murray, Wright, Marion, Strah, and Winicki, ' gunna Senior All-Slufd 2nd - Senior -99- VARSITY BASKETBALL Knoph, Mgr., lones, MacMurray, Wright, Macintosh, Murray, Iohnson, Williams, Ridge- way, Coach Iohnson.

Most games had fans and coaches alike off their seats during the entire contest: battles with Grand Haven, Holland, Benton Harbor, and Ottawa were all of this type. The squad, however, put on some of their best shows of the year in the Regional Tourna- rnent. After crushing Ottawa and Grand Haven, the team was edged by highly favored Muske- gon in the final.
