CLASS BASKET BALL
NEW feature of the interschool athletic program this year was the class baSe
ketball tournament. The cooperation of Coach Klandrud and the athletic
council has given impetus to the expansion of such forms of school athletics. This
year the freshmen, led by Captain Krueger, Hammer and Keilholtz guards, Ander-
son, center, and Weishapple, Larson, and Seharlan, forwards, defeated the sophOe
mores 18-13. The second year team was composed of Bartosh and Captain Al-
fonse, guards, Turner, center, and Larson and Shields, forwards. For the losers
Captain Alfonse played a fine defensive game, while Shields kept the score close
with four ringers from the field. With the score tied, Larson and Scharlau sank
the two baskets that gave the frosh their victory. The two teams played a high
class brand of basketball, and many of the players will be of much value to Coach
Klandrudis squad next year.
The second game of the meet was won by the seniors, Captain Case leading
his men to a 2346 victory over the junior five. The senior team included such
veterans as Case, center; Ulrich, Landis, and Mullendore, forwards; and Brooks
and Prucha, guards. Landis and Case were varsity men on the Falls 1928 team,
and their cool, steady playing gave the seniors at well versed team. iiRudy" Pru-
cha and Clifford Brooks were two dependable guards that could be relied upon
to smother opposing plays. The third year team was guided by Captain "Winkie"
Clafiin. Norman Kahl and John MacDonald held the forward berths, while Max
Klimper and iTBong" Luberg formed the defensive bulwarks for the junior squad.
Although the third year team fought desperately to overcome their opponents lead,
the superior team work of the seniors held off threatening rallies.
When Captain Krueger sank a long shot in the last seconds of the game, the
fresh annexed the class championship by winning a 18-20 game from the upper-
classmen. During the first half of the game the "hawk-eyed" shooting of Case
enabled the seniors to run up a commanding lead. However, Larson and Scharlau
rallied the frosh at the start of the second half, their two field goals tieing the
score. Anderson kept the frosh in the running, after the seniors sank a short shot,
by making two gift shots good. At this stage of the game Krueger took the ball
on an out-of-bounds play and iiswished" it through the rim for the winning basket.

RIVER FALLS 29, EAU CLAIRE 19
N February 26 Eau Claire was humbled to the tune of 29-19 by Klandrud,s
basketeers. There were no individual stars on the Falls team; they all
played a bang-up game and showed a lot of fight in bringing the ball down the
floor. The game started with fast playing by each team, and it was not' long be-
fore the Red and White ran up a 10-4 score. Although Hunt was heavily guarded
in this game, he left his shadow behind him often enough to lead his team-mat'es
in scoring as well as playing an outstanding floor game. During the second half
the Falls worked through" the Eau Claire defense for three short baskets in rapid
succession, taking a ten point lead. Coach Klandrud sent in the second team
during the last quarter, which held EauClaire well in check.
RIVER FALLS 27, SUPERIOR 26
T HE fighting Red and White five won the state championship when they re-
pelled the onslaught of the Superior Yellowjackets by a score of 27-26 in the
last game of the season. T 0 add to the thrills 0f the battle, the winning bakske't
was not made until the last seventeen seconds of play. nBill" Hunt started the
classic out right when he tipped one through the hoop at the start of the game.
Plucky fighting by Superior, however, tied the game at twelve all as the half
ended. When the second half got under way sensational playing by iiBud" and
"Bill" gave the Red and White cagers a six point lead. But great shooting by the
flashy Di Marco' gave Superior a one point advantage in the closing seconds of
play, but uBud" won the state championship for River Falls when he sank a sen-

ORGANIZATION BASKET BALL
W ITH the view of fostering intramural athletics as well as recruiting new ma-
terial for the varsity squad, Coach Klandrud promoted the organization
basketball tournament. Six organizations entered teams in the contest. They
were: the Falls Eat Shop, the Agrifallian, the N. C. A., the Y. M. C. A., the Lines,
and the Taylor House. At the close of the tournament Sharlow of the Ags. and
Turner of the Y. M. C. A. teams were placed on the first squad. Phalen of the
Falls Eat Shop led the scoring with a total of 25 points. He was closely followed,
however, by Kahl and Scharlau of the Ags. and Turner of the "Y," who all scored
over twenty points.
Over forty men played in the tournament games. For the Taylor House; Sch-
nur, Freeman, and Neilson were the forwards, Captain Nelson and Penn held
down the pivot position, and Tweit, Solum and Weber played guard. The per-
sonnel of the Links included Captain Luberg and Fink, guards; Grimm, center; and
Shields and Thomas, forwards. Captain Turner led the Y. M. C. A. His team-
mates were: Lund, Nelson, and Haunschild, on the offense; and Switzenberg, Glass
and Hemp, defensive players. Captain Kahl and Scharlau, two of the highest scor-
ers in the tournament, furnished the scoring punch for the Ags. Groom jumped
center, and Mullendore, L. Chapman, and E. Chapman, carried the defensive as-
signments. The guards of the N. C. A. team were Captain Brooks and Prucha.
Linehan controlled the pivot post, while Claflin and MacDonald were the for-
wards. The championship Falls Eat Shop team was led by Captain Case at center,
Phalen, Larson, and Landis furnished the scoring threat, and the defensive burden
Was carried by Yahnke, Ulrich and Klimper.
The tournament race was the closest ever staged in organization basketball at
River Falls. When the regular season ended, the Falls Eat Shop, Agrifallian, and
N. C. A. were tied for first place with four victories and one defeat each. In the
first elimination game the N. C. A. team was forced to play an overtime period to
take the measure of the Ags. by a 19-18 score. ClaHin sank the winning basket
when he slipped through the Ag. defense for a pot shot under the basket. The
Ags. missed several chances to tie the score when their gift shots went wild. The
game ended with the score 16-12, in favor of the Falls Eat Shop. Yahnke, Landis,
and Case carried the brunt of the attack for the victors, while good shooting by
Linehan and MacDonald kept the losers in the running.
