HE BASKETBALL TEAM has clearly won the "Prep" School
Championship of Virginia. Playing twelve games, against the
strongest "prep" schools in the state, they suffered but three
defeats. Two of the defeats were administered by teams not in
the State of Virginia.
At the first of the season anything but a winning combination
Not one letter man had returned, but a few of the last year
'fscrubs" had returned, and around these, a winning team was built.
The two games with A. M. A. were, of course, the "Big Gamesu of the season.
The first game was played at A. M. A. This resulted in a victory for S. M. A., 27
to 22. The return game, on the S. M. A. floor, was more exciting, the score at the.
end of the half being tied at 10-10. During the intermission, Coach Manning, who
was in charge, due to the absence of Head Coach Tarr, gave the boys a talk, the
result of which was shown in the second half. From then on, A. M. A. didn't have
a chance, the final score standing, S. M. A., 29-A. M. A., 22.
S. M. A. won both games played against the strong Virginia "Fresh" team.
These were perhaps S. M. Afs greatest triumphs of the season, for the "Fresh"
had defeated all of the other "prep" schools of the State.
Marshall was one of the fastest floor men and best shots in the scholastic
ranks. He was the high scorer of the season. He kept opposing guards busy at
all times. McDonnell, his running mate, was one of the best. Due to a broken
finger, he didn,t get into many of the earlier games, but he sure came strong at the
end of the season. VValters, the pivot man, was a great asset to the five. He was
the equal of any on the jump. Connelly played a line game at guard, and held his
opponents to few goals. Considering that this was his 'hrst year at the ganre, he
made a fine record. Bauer, the other guard, playing his first year at S. M. A.,
made a splendid showing. He was a marvel at shooting foul baskets. The other
four letter men, Loppacker, Sponseller, and Fell, were found very able substitutes.
The second team developed some good men, who ought to make the team next year.
Walters, who has been elected Captain for 1922, should prove an able leader.
Letters were awarded to Marshall, McDonnell, Loppacker, VValters, Barber,
Connelly, Bauer, Fell, and Sponseller. A
