The Baseball Squad . . . 2 t
The 1950 county runnerups. Bottom row, reading left to right: Gordie Miner, Carl Stephenson,
Larry Gillum, Ronnie Burnett, Ray Myers, Ierry Danner, and Roland Nerdingp second row, Bob
Egenolf, Ed White, Ronnie Brown, lack Wilson, lim Huber, lesse Eiermann, Iohn Schierg top row,
Tom Paddock, Ioe Hawthorne, lohn Hurrle, Iohn Martin, Tom Scherschel, Duke lohnson, and
Coach Ray Linson. ,
After having conquered county opposition for two county titles in a
row, last year's squad finished second to Decatur Central.
Coach Linson's boys got off to a bad start by falling before Ben Davis
5 to 4. This same thing happened five more times in the next eight games
as the Cards were able to triumph only three times in the first nine contests.
However, a change was in line and the baseloallers swept their last five
straight by defeating Warren Central, Howe, Garfield of Terre Haute, Wash-
ington, and Connersville.
Our 1951 Cardinal nine is competing for the South Central Conference
baseball championship due to the league's action of accepting Southport
as the ninth member. '
Action with S.C.C. schools last year consisted of three games. Those
were a one run loss to Columbus, another loss to Greensburg and an 8 to 7,
one run triumph over Connersville.
Returning lettermen for this year's campaign were Don Iohnson and
lim Whitaker, catchers, Tom Paddock, center fielder and last year's leading
hitter with a .525 batting mark, Iohn Martin, Roland Nerding, and Ierry
Danner, lnfielders, and Gordie Miner, the only holdover pitcher.

Our Cardinal Grapplersg State Champions. Pictured on the mat are Bob Pence, bottom, and
lerry Grummell, topg kneeling are: manager Phil George, Ronnie Baumqart, Allen Morgan, Harry
Rasdall, and Don lohnsony standing are: Bill Parson, Charlie Rau, lim Whitaker, lohn Hurrle,
Coach Chauncey McDaniels, Tom Scherschel, Dick Weddle, and Maurice Rice.
When Chauncey McDaniels first talked to
his wrestling team at the beginning of the
season, he told them exactly what they were
going to do. The team did just that, they won
the state wrestling tourney.
The high-flying Cardinals lost only one
dual meet all year, and it took an out-of-state
team, Champaign, lllinois, to do it. The only
other loss the team suffered was to Shortridge
by one point in the Marion County tourney.
Southport's matmen got revenge when they
ran away from all opposition, including sec-
ond place Shortridge in the sectional meet.
The Cardinals won eight individual championf
ships thus qualifying them for the state
Taking probably the school's most balanced
team of all time into the state tourney, the
Cardinals took their eight sectional champs
to the finals. Without taking a single in-
dividual state championship, the team totaled
27 points, enough to bring to Southport the
two and one-half foot state championship
The following wrestlers took second place
in the tourney: l-larry Basdale at 97 lbs.,
Bonnie Baumgarr wrestling in the ll4 lb.
class, lerry Grummell, wrestling at 140 lbs.,
Tom Scherschel, weighing in at 167 lbs., and
in the nights closest match, lohn Hurrle at
l75 placed second by dropping a referees
decision to Bob Languell of Bloomingtorfs
retired lforceablyl state champs. Those placing
third in the tourney were: at 105 lbs., Al
Morgan, Maurice Bice in the l29 lb. class,
and Bob Pence, at l47, who won his third
place, wrestling with a cracked rib.
Helping to make the season the success
it was, were four other "first stringers," Bill
Parsons, Charles Rau, lim Whitaker, and Dick
Coach Chauncey McDaniels has the pro-
mise of another good season next year when
he will have Harry Rasdale, Al Morgan,
Bonnie Baumgart, and Dick Weddle back on
