Dolphin Determination Builds Victorious Year The Rock Island Dolphins, under the guidance of Head Coach Fred Friedrichsen and assistants Ken Knapp and Rick Gilli¬ land, had a season filled with fine progress and determination. Early in the season, sophomore Vince Ackerson and juniors Craig Kirkpatrick and Dave Andrews, were successful in making state qualifying time in their events. Acker- son also broke all sophomore times in the 400 yard relay. The medley relay team of Andrews, Kirkpatrick, Steve Lardner and Jerry Wagner also made state qualifying time. The Dolphins posted a third place finish at the Evanston Relays, and maintained their productiveness throughout the sea¬ son. Senior diver, Robert Thompson, earned a fifth place medal at Evanston, which was the highest ever achieved by a Rock Island diver in this meet. The 1972-73 tankers ended a successful season with great satisfaction and high honors. Coach Freidrichsen completed his third season as coach, leading his team to championship meets and individual victories. 1.
