Although the 1955 football season was a bit disappointing with a O-8 won-lost rec- ord, our Vikings flnished in the Badger Con- ference with the same high-spirited drive to win with which they started. At times the Vikings moved the ball well, but penalties, fumbles and other bad breaks hurt them. Their downfall was largely due to inexperi- ence. However, the Lettermen really earned their letters by playing at least one-half of the total number of quarters played. The team was coached by Mr. Schnurr and As- sistant Coach Koenig.

The Vikings showed much en- thusiosm, spirit, and teamwork. They were sporked by the tremendous scoring of Don Hoverson, outstanding floor plays of George Han- son ond Jerry Peterson, ond Une all-around plays and field goals of Harvey Anderson, Keith Slinde, and Phil l-lawkinson. The coaching wos done by Coach Schnurr with the assistance of Mr. Wilson. The teams of the Bedger Conference proved to be stiff competition, but the team won seventeen out of eighteen games. ln the sectional tournament, Stoughton out-scored Wisconsin High the first night, however, Monroe out for revenge, defeated them in the second night of play. 76 FAST TENSE GAMES AND FINE TEAMWORK Nov Nov Nov ec ec ec ec on on on on on on e e e I9 SCHEDULE Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stough on Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Stoughton Q4 Stoug on Tournone Mor To .nornent Mor. 2 .,,, dir 70 44 64 51 77 64 65 61 80 47 93 43 64 48 70 60 64 38 70 65 65 45 77 49 69 51 69 46 58 52 78 75 43 61 94 80 66 63 68-70 Loke Genevo Modlson West Edgewood Jefferson Edgerton Evonsfutte Middleton Fort X-xtkun Wus Hugh Monroe Jefferson Edgerton Evonsvntte Edgef ood Msddteton Fort wtktnson WIS Hugh Monro WIS Hugh Monroe P-4, ffff. ft--Q, Nrd O ,.-,, , , 1'1'r"E' :c:'es otre' Celd Ed1?MC' ef goo o o e ed o o po shp HARD WORK CONTROLLED TEMPERS FAIR PLAY WRESTLING 6881 gl?
