The first bout ended in a 4-4 tie, and in the second meeting the local boys were victorious by a 6M-2 K2 margin. Previous to this these boys engaged in various amateur shows and tournaments in Wisconsin and in Minnesota. The season reached its peak when seven of the boys entered in the Seventeenth District Golden Gloves Tournament at Red Wing, Minnesota. They were Peterson, Mills, Aldrich, Barto, Thoeny, Gray, and Daggett. Six of these seven boys survived the elimination fights and reached the finals, and Thoeny and Barto went on to win the championships in their respective divisions. By winning this tournament Barto and Thoeny qualified for entrance to the North- west Golden Gloves Tournament at Minneapolis. In the opening elimination round Thoeny was matched against Shaughnessy, a pre-tournament favorite and one of the top amateur welterweights in the northwest. Thoeny won a rousing decision over his opponent after flooring his man four times and once being knocked down himself. Barto was matched against Jack Thurly of Winona, Minnesota, a popular pre-tournament favorite, to win the heavyweight title. Barto easily outboxed him to win a decision. In the second round of elimination fihts both boys were handicapped by injuries received the previous night and were defeated. The only men to graduate on the squad are Mills and Thoeny who have established envious records for themselves in four years of boxing. Mills has a record of seventeen victories and eight defeats, while Thoeny has a total of twenty-two victories and six defeats. All of these boys were coached and trained by Mike White, a former national golden glove contender, and Dan Linehan, local chief-of-police.
