Autumn leaves blow as tennis balls are aimed at strategic points on a court during a tight match. Who else but these active, young, athletes would enjoy the fervor and excite¬ ment of tennis for six weeks in the fall? When spring birds return, they find once again the school courts bustling with activity. The spring season starts early to shape up rusty wrists and unused muscles for a new, competitive slate of matches. Mrs. Brent instructs Koren Kromer and Patty Greene os to the proper manner to hold a racket, in on eorly season practice session.

Boys and Girls Golf Teams Prime For Spring Duals Girls ' Golf is one of the younger sports at Rock Island. The " ladies of the links " have met competition for only the past two years. Because there is no regular coach, Mr. Almquist, Athletic Director and head Football coach, instructs the squad. Although the sport is only two years old, the young ladies have compiled an outstand¬ ing record. Last season they retained their Quad-City championship, captured two years ago, and finished the year undefeated. In fact, the girls ' golf squad is the only team at Rock Island never having suffered defeat. Last year Kathy Pickron, Rosemary Weh- king, and Sue Temple played important roles in the team ' s success. They will form the nucleus of this year ' s squad. Seated: Christien Strutz. Standing: Ina Karish, Kathy Pickron, Rosemary Wehking. The Rock Island male sod-busters, under the leadership of coach Lyle For¬ ward, swept to a Quad Cities champion¬ ship, the first for Rocky linksters for many seasons. The Rocks ' front line offense is built around four returning lettermen; Bill Walker, Dan Stevenson, Bob Lowitz, and John Allen. Others who saw action during the brief fall schedule and who will be counted on for support in the Spring are; seniors Steve Walgren and Bill Fitzsimmons and junior Tom Brown. The Rocks ' whose fall action was limited to local competition will take on a number of non conference rivals plus Mississippi Valley and Quad City clashes. The Islanders who have been peren¬ nial push-overs will try to establish them¬ selves as powers of the golf links and will try to repeat as Quad City champions in the spring.
