On the night following the Bethany game the Peru team traveled to Lamed. Kansas to meet the Lamed Athletic Club, an amateur team composed of former college stars from Kansas University. Emporia Teachers. Oklahoma University and other leading Universities. Lamed presented a wonderful team and gave the Bobcats a sound drubbing to the tune of 39 to 10. Hays State Teachers College is Coach Lorbeer's Alma Mater and so the Hays game is always a highlight in the Peru schedule. This year the Hays team was especially strong and so the Peruvians encountered much difficulty although it was a hard fought battle. The game ended with Hays on the long end of a 32 to 24 score.
After the Kansas trip came a group of home games. Of the five games played on the home court, three were conference games. The first game at home was a return with the Bethany "Swedes'" who came to Peru to revenge the defeat administered upon them by the Bobcats at Lindsburg. They certainly must have gone back into Kansas satisfied for they won a 51 to 16 victory. Chadron. Peru’s keenest rival, came to Peru for a two game series. The Bobcats were pitched up for these two games and emerged victorious from both battles, the first 37 to 29 and the second 34 to 33.

SOUTH END OF GYMNASIUM
THE 1931-1932 Bobcat basketball team played one of the most difficult X schedules in the history of basketball at Peru. Not only did the schedule include superior teams but also long hard trips. Taking everything into consideration the season was very successful.
Coach "Dutch " Lorbeer always starts the season out with a trip into Kansas where the Bobcats tackle the best basketball teams in the midwest. This year the trip included the fast Bethany College quintet at Lindsburg. Kansas. Bethany was the runner up in the 1931 National A. A. U. Tournament at Kansas City. With a team of veterans, including Larson. all-American center in 1931, the Bethany " Swedes" were a formidable foe. The Bobcats however were not daunted by the high standing of their foe and fought their way to a 2 1 to 22 victory.
Head Basketball Coach Ernest E. Lorbeer has finished his fourth year as basketball mentor at Peru. During these four years "Dutch has developed teams which have ranked right up with the best. His teams have placed first, second, and third in the conference but no matter where they placed they were excellent teams coached by an excellent coach. "Dutch" is a great athlete in his own right and so has that something to give, that instills pep and fire into his teams. Such players as Krejci. Hertz. Wasley. Hurst. Korber. Hatcher, and Groothius have been developed by Lorbeer while he has been at Peru and he bids fair to develop more men of this same calibre. His teams have beaten such nationally known teams as the Hillyards and Bethany. Peru has a right to be proud of her basketball teams and of her coach.

The Chadron series was followed by a hard fought conference battle with Wayne. The Wildcats came to Peru with exactly the same team that they brought last year and consequently were no set-up. The game was very close from the opening whistle until the last. It finally ended Peru 35 and Wayne 33.
Kearney was the next foe to invade the Bobcat haunts. They proved to be too much for the Peruvians and so returned to central Nebraska with another victory added to their list.
Again the Peru Bobcats took to the road for a fifteen hundred mile trip which included seven games. Norfolk team was met first and disposed of easily, the Bobcats winning 51 to 21. From Norfolk the team moved to Wayne and met the Wildcats on their home floor. This time the Wayne team was hitting its full stride and so downed Peru 33 to 21. The conference champion. Omaha University, was next on the list. Peru always gets the same reception at Omaha and was not disappointed this time. The game was played on the Benson High School court to a good crowd of Omahans who were well pleased, for the Cardinals were victorious.
