Through the help of Mr. Jack
Schreder and Mr. Charles Janke,
the track team of 1961 was one of
the best Southfield has had.
The team was second in the
Inter-Lakes Conference, winning
four of eleven scheduled meets.
Waterford won the lnter-Lakes Con-
ference titleg while Walled Lake,
Berkley, Pontiac Northern, and
Farmington fell by the wayside as
Southfield was victorious over them.
Perhaps the most inspiration
was shown by senior shot-putter
Fred Penness, who holds the school
record in this event with a toss of
55 feet, UQ inches. Bill Hough, a
sophomore, jumped to victory many
times. He holds the school record
in the broad jump with a leap of 21
feet, V4 inch. Hough and Penness
both placed first in the league meet
winning all-conference titles.
These boys, as well as the other
members of the track team, should be
appreciated for bringing honor and
recognition to Southfield by showing
their interest and ability in athletics.

Winning 11 of 18 scheduled matches, the
1961 golf team had a victorious season.
The team, consisting of Bill Fogler, Ray
Gadowski, Rod Kaminski, Jim Kenyon, Rick
Marshall, Dick Meuthel, Joe Poe, Larry
Spencer, and coached by Mr. Richard Wel-
kenbach, tied for third place in the Inter-
Lakes Conference last spring. Kenyon was

ley, and Pontiac Northem.
Golf is different from other sports be-
cause in baseball, football, and basketball,
the player must make snap decisions, and
how efficient he is at this usually deter-
mines how good a player he is. However, in
golf, the player has all the time in the world
to make a decision as to which club to use,
how hard to hit the ball, what type of spin
to use, and how to play the wind, if there is
any. Golf is a game of thought and concen-
tration. The golfer must have nerves of
steel because of the trememdous amount of
pressure put upon him during his match. He
knows that his score depends on each indi-
vidual shot and he must play the game stroke
by stroke, using all the knowledge he has
gained from previous experience.
