Junior Nine Features Teamwork The opening of the 1954 spring athletic season found a newly formed 6'B,7 baseball team, com- posed entirely of sophomores, striving hard for perfection on the diamond. The coming of a new team brought a new man to join Normandy's fine coaching staff. Mr. Cuffey, physical education teacher from Washington Elementary School, was chosen to guide the junior team. Among the boys who showed special interest and who tried hard to become better players were Don Mahaffey, first baseg Bill Roberts, catcherg ,lim Willenberg. pitcherg and Bob Foster, alternate pitcher and shortstop. At the time the Saga went to press, the "Bw Vik- ings had played five of their ten-game schedule. They had a record of two wins and three losses. They got off to a slow start by losing their first three games-University City, 4-2g John Burroughs, 9-Og and Country Day, 8-6. In the next game, how- ever, they trounced Ladue. I5-l. and then forced Maplewood to bow to them, 8-6. ,L , HH7'f1-lI'iff'l7I!I Tom, is tl crmstmzf threat to his oppon en ts. For the remainder of the season, the Viking HB" team looked forward to many victories. With the experience they gained this year. they should be well prepared to make the 1955 Varsity another top- notch team for Coach Arthur Shipherd.

Although there were few ont- standing players, the boys combined their talents to achieve their desired goal. it Viking is safe as he beats out the throw to first. ln last year's Suburban League play, the Viking nine won 19 of the 23 games they played. Coached by Mr. Arthur Shipherd, the l951l1 team was lcd by Captain Eugene Schwidde. It was very fortunate in having eight returning lettermen---four composed a veteran infield. Hoping to win another state title, the following returned to the team: Schwidde, center fieldg Polkinghorne, left fieldg Thiele, third baseg Pfanstiel, second baseg Sanders. short stopg Johnston, pitcher or first haseg and Mc- Grath, catcher. Many non-lettermen bolstered the team and gained experienee for next year. A MBT team was formed to give more material for future varsity teams. ln the Suburban League the top teams for 1954 were Vlfebster, Maplewood, U. City and Ritenour. As the Saga went to press, a strong Normandy team. filled with a fighting spirit, prepared to bring home top honors. Puqe Sixty-Six

RN' Nailing orer the top, Ilzlke sets ll nerr record. HE l954f Varsity Track team had the misfor- tune of not having enough hoys participating to take care of their events. The opening of the spring training season, howcvcr. found Coach Mel Sheehanis team working hard and practicing long industrious Ci hours to make up for the lack of men out for track. Although the group did not elect a captain, the boys cooperated well with each other and their very fine coach. Coach Sheehan made it his policy not to assign any certain amount of workout. He allowed the team members to decide how much they needed each night and how many laps they must run in order to warm up. The Normandy team had completed two meets of their current season when the Saga went to press. They were unsuccessful in both. C.B.C., the first school, as usual, had a very powerful team. Then the Vikings lost to Kirkwood, another tough op- ponent. The Varsity team was invited to participate in the Maplewood Relays. There they made a very fine showing. The two-mile relay team placed sec- ond in its event. Members of the team were Don THIRD ROW: Cheiry, Ervin, Stroud, Picket, Henderson, Hughes, Nuesse, Sittner, Lduenstein, Misrtl.
