Domination Continues, Capture QC Crown CHAMPS AGAIN, THE Rocks ' tennis team and coaches are, STANDING: Ass ' t. Coach James Jae¬ ger, Duane Stevens, Jim Brenneke, and Coach Robert Motz. KNEELING: Bill Martin, DeArmond Briggs, and Steve Flack. BOB HOTLE Senior JOHN MORDHORST Senior For the tenth consecutive year Coach Bob AAotz produced a fall tennis squad that captured the Quad-City title. The team, consisting of mostly lettermen, continued to be tops in the area posting a 5-0 record In doubles competition and a 4-0-1 slate In singles. The only blemish on the Rocks ' record was 3-3 tie against the AAoline AAaroons. Junior DeArmond Briggs continued in the number one position, while John AAordhorst provided a good backup man in the number two slot. Other members of the varsity squad who contributed to the fine season were seniors Bob Hotle, Bill Martin, Jim Brenneke, Duane Stevens, and junior Steve Flack. In singles competition this fall the Rocks recorded four shutouts and the tie with Moline. In doubles play the Rocks shutout Alleman, East Mo¬ line, and Davenport West. To com¬ plete their undefeated season the Rocks stopped Moline and Daven¬ port Central by a score of 2-1. At the Quad-city Conference match held at Rocky, John Mordhorst walked off with the singles ' title to add more glitter to a very successful season. Coach Motz ' s spring squad of 1967 was perhaps the strongest in recent years, as i t compiled a per¬ fect record in dual competition, with a 17-0 slate. The ' 67 netsters were again led by Briggs and Mordhorst but Tom LaDage, a senior, was at the top most of the season giving assistance to the top two. Senior Tom Conrad also helped the squad In the number six slot. Hotle and Martin were also instrumental in preserving the perfect record. This edition of the Rocky tennis team captured the Mississippi Valley crown, the Quad-City title, and first in district competition. They went on to cop a fifth place finish in the state meet held at Champaign in May. The strength of this squad is unquestionable due to the fact that of their seventeen victories, thirteen were shutouts. Their domination over their opponents is evident in that they defeated Moline, East Moline, Rock Island Alleman, Davenport West, and Davenport Central each twice. Both the fall and spring squads of 1967 were highly success¬ ful with a total record of an as¬ tounding 26-0-1. 216
