Rock Island High School produced one of the finest sophomore track teams in recent years. Coach lundeen ' s sophomore squad compiled an impres¬ sive 6-1 dual meet record. Excellent depth and several star performers enabled the Pebbles to snare the soph¬ omore Quad-City championship. The Lit¬ tle Rocks also were able to capture the Mississippi Valley championship, which is possibly some of the toughest compe¬ tition found in the Midwest. Outstanding sophomore trackmen, who on several occasions helped the Varsity squad, were Kevin O ' Hern and Larry Begyn, distance runners; Frank Riley, who backed up Don Allbritton and Mike Chaney in the pole vault; Marc Gilliam, sprinter; and Ken John¬ son, high and low hurdles. These ath¬ letes and many other Sophs will help the varsity squad in the upcoming sea¬ son. 242

With only one returning letterman from last year ' s squad coming back. Coach Carl Aronson spent most of March working on an entirely new lineup for the 1968 baseball season. Last year ' s team consisted of almost all seniors. Dave Howell was the only underclassman to receive a major letter and Coaches Aronson and Jerry Janecke hope that he will be able to lead this year ' s inexperienced club. Other team members that the coaches are relying on are seniors Dennis Cromer, Paul Meincke, Mike Day, Mike Brown, and Greg Langston. Cliff Nice appears to be the most promising junior candi¬ date for a starting berth on this year ' s starting nine. Due to the unseasonally nice weather the Rocks have been able to utilize the outdoor facilities Instead of the usually used balcony In the boys ' gym. Last spring the Rocks experienced an up-down sea¬ son and ended their schedule with a below .500 mark. Tom Messmer and Larry Milligan shared mound chores throughout most of the season and both demonstrated fine stuff. Jim Knox, Rich Louck, Bob Bevans, and Terry Denoma led the Rocks at the plate. FORMING THE NUCLEUS for this year ' s squad are seniors Dennis Cromer, Mike Day, Greg Langston, Dave Howell, and Mike Brown. 244
