Coach E. I.okhkek
THE Peru Bobcats, under the coaching of Ernest “Dutch” Lorbcer, won the N. I. A. A. championship for the first time. Last year this championship was copped by the Kearney Antelopes. The season started rather slow for the Cats with two reverses at Hays Teachers, the first 24-20 and the second 20-16, but in the next game on the same trip Krejci, Captain W'asley, Railsback, and Brockman were hitting from all angles and the Portis dynamo quintet went down to a 43-31 defeat.
An independent team from Northboro, Iowa, held Peru to a 37-34 victory in the first home game for the Bobcats since the arrival of Coach Lorbeer. Wasley and Krejci were again the big guns in Peru’s attack with Hertz standing out on the defense.

Captain Russell Wasley, Bobcat guard, completed his fourth year of collegiate basket ball by leading his team to a state championship. “Russ” was placed on all-state-selections several times because of his ability both to guard and to score from long range. In 1929, he was one of the high-scoring guards in the conference, amassing 40 field goals and 19 free throws for a total of 99 points.
The squad next embarked on a southern invasion and came out on top with two victories, the first over the fast St. Benedict cagers at Atchison 27-23, and the second over the St. Joe Cardinals 30-26. Krejci and Hertz were outstanding in both games; the big boy from Plattsmouth tallied four times from the floor in the first and sunk seven counters in the second victory.
Bobcats On to Victory!
