Vklith the new gym, four lettermen, two reserves, and approximately fifty
other fellows out for basketball. the pre-season prospects seemed great. Soon.
however, the roster was cut to fifteen. The squad. with well-plannedplays,
about three weeks stiff training and strict coaching, met Elk River. Elk River
won 11-9. lt was a close game throughout. Anoka was leading at the half
but relinquished its lead in the fourth quarter. Coach Mason used two teams
in effort to find a good combination.
The next game was played at lV1i1aca where the experienced Nlilaca team
whipped Anoka, who was without the services of Captain Hollom. The hnal
score was 25-11.
Then to Cambridge. The Anoka team showed improvement. but they
didn't seem to "get going." Anoka missed enough free throws to win the
game, but it ended 22-15 in favor of Cambridge.
Princeton-the 1930 District Champions--defeated Anoka by the over-
whelming score of 25-5. The Anoka defense cracked and P'rinceton's shifty
players raced through to make many set-up shots.
Then Anoka went to Cambridge. This was a close game with many
free throws missed. Cambridge won 22-15. Next, Anoka went to Columbia
Heights as sure losers, but the tables turned and before Columbia Heights knew
it, they were behind. Anoka's defense clicked and their offensive drives brought
them in close to Columbia Heights basket. Anoka led 23-22 with two seconds
to play. Then, a Heights player shot one from the side and in it went. Anoka
Elk River fell to Anoka's powerful attack in the next encounter with the
score 21-15. Wennerlund and O'Connor starred. They sank three goals in
quick succession and gave a lead which Anoka retained throughout the game.
Milaca then met Anoka on the local floor. Anoka started fast and piled
up a four point lead. With a few seconds left to play, E. Olson sank two
sensational shots for Milaca. Sanford also shot one and the game ended 22-21.
Cambridge came to Anoka and again a close game was played. Anoka
lost, however, 16-14. Next came Columbia Heights. They defeated Anoka
27-15. Princeton's smooth passing, fast-breaking fellows downed Anoka again
with the score of 25-10.
Anoka's last game of the season was with Braham. This made the
