Without a doubt Washington has had the best
wrestling teams in the state for the last three
What is the reason for this success? Can it be
duplicated? I say, yes! The '40-'41-'42 State
Championships should prove this beyond a doubt.
Three teams but one coach - this is the key. Most
boys are made of championship ustufff' but it
takes a real coach to bring it out and use it to the
The '42 team is a good example of what I mean.
Nine-tenths of the team garnered first or third
place awards and almost double the points of the
nearest competitor. The five first place Uchampsu
are Keith Conners, Captaing Bill Martin, Les
Owens, Tom Trester, and Bob Hayward.
These and others are surely champions, but they
had to be shaped and molded into the finished
product. Coach Powers did this. He alone taught,
inspired, and united them into a compact, efficient,
championship team which didn't know the phrase,
The boys who placed third in the State Meet
were: Ray Martin, 105 lb. elassg Ellsworth Gohlke,
135 lb. class, and Charles Gumm, heavyweight class.

XVashington's finmen brought a fair season to a
close by placing third in The Little City swimming
meet. Although few dual meet wins were chalked
up, the team produced four outstanding men. The
high point man was Armand Mueller, a Junior,
who participated in the 220-yard free style and
both relays. Captain Bob Wagner also made his
mark in each meet by leading the other school's
swimmers to the finish line in the 100-yard back-
Still another Tonian to gain much lasting fame
was Grant Krueger, who won his specialties, the
100-yard breaststroke and relay at many meets.
Jack Hoelscher, only a sophomore, made his major
letter by completing a very steady season, compet-
ing in the 50 and 100-yard free style and relay.
The team, although defeated in many dual
meets, was usually defeated by the superior num-
bers of the opposition. The Tonians' greatest power
lay in the quality of their material rather than the
quantity. This fact was clearly brought out in
the Little City Meet, where the better swimmers
of the city were brought together. In this meet
the locals placed well because in a meet of that
kind the quality of a team shines through.
Mueller garnered 78 points throughout the sea-
son, Wagner 70, Krueger 70, and Hoelscher 42.

team came out on top ln the semester III basket-
ball tournament. Mr. Brown's group, after defeat-
ing many teams of the semester III group, won its
championship on an easy forfeit.
The champion of the semester IV group was
Coach Lauren Sprague's crew. Coach Sprague's
group had little trouble in toppling over their
opponents, who were unable to match the Sprague-
men's stellar play.
The two outstanding teams o fthe semester V
group were Coach Humke's and Coach Black-
bourn's teams. Unfortunately, Coach Blackbourn's
group forfeited to the Humkemen, but the Humke-
men proved themselves in the finals by winning
Coach Rolin B. Gettle's semester VI group
swamped all opposition aside. With such high
scoring hardwooders as Bob Dankert, Leroy Brown,
and Roy Woboril, the Gettlemen had very little
trouble in gaining the championship.
In the finals Coach Humke's five downed a very
strong Gettle team to the tune of 26-23. After
this hard earned victory, the Humkemen had little
trouble in downing Mr. Brown's semester III group
and Coach Sprague's semester IV group.
