The Pebbles never could find the right combination as they dropped their first four encounters. The Little Rocks were defeated by Quincy, West, Auburn, and East Moline dur¬ ing that stretch. The Sophs then proceeded to down Rockford West handily, 55-39. Three more defeats fol¬ lowed before Iowa City bowed to the Rocks 60-57. An¬ other dry spell set in as the Little Rocks lost five more in a row. At the end of this loss skein the Pebbles put to¬ gether their biggest win streak of the season —2 games. In these two games the Rocks beat the Dubuque Rams by 32 points, 61-29, and nipped Jefferson, 66-63. The Sophs gained their fifth win by downing an inexperi¬ enced all-star team consisting of 9th grade players from the four junior highs. The all-star game was an experi¬ ment that provided the Rocky fans an opportunity to see the future sophomore squad in action. Center Mark Edwards led the Pebbles In scoring and rebounding but Duncan Fallon showed considerable prowess In ball-handling and scoring. Other sophomores who showed good potential were Tom Scott, Lew Mis¬ kowitz, and Doug Stelling. 237 SOPHOMORE SCOREBOARD Rock Island 33 Quincy 57 Rock Island 50 Davenport West 94 Rock Island 31 Rockford Auburn 53 Rock Island 47 East Moline 74 Rock Island 55 Rockford West 39 Rock Island 52 Alleman 67 Rock Island 52 C.R.

DISPLAYING THEIR TROPHIES are members of the boys ' golf team, KNEELING: Greg Stone, Coach Thodeus Crews, and Steve Forward. BACK ROW: Dave Coons, Dave Lofgren, Tom Chappell, GJ. Grevas, and Bob Bailey. BOB BAILEY —Junior Medalist Boys Cop Fall Title; Under the guidance of Coach Thad Crews, the 1967 boys ' golf team captured the fall championship of the Quad-city Con¬ ference. This victory was just one of many that the Rocks have won over the past two years. The Rocks won their first District ti¬ tle in history in 1966 and since that time have gained not only prestige but also a second District crown. The second crown came last spring when the team led by seniors Jim Savage, Dick AAosenfelder, and Jeff AAurphy completed a very successful sea¬ son. The ' 67 title brings the task of making it three in a row to this year ' s team. The loss of last year ' s standouts dimmed the Rocks ' hopes to repeat but Coach Crews came up with another winner as his fall squad took the Quad-City crown by 14 strokes over Central. In winning the team title the Rocks showed unusual balance. This balance was exemplified by the fact that only 3.8 strokes sepa¬ rated the top 7 golfers. Bob Bailey, a junior, was medalist on three occasions and averaged 41.2 strokes throughout the sea¬ son. Steve Forward was next in line with a 41.8 average. Dave Coons, Dave Lofgren, and Tom Chappell each were low for the Rocks on one occasion. 238
