■one LADIES’ BASKETBALL TEAM
Page 42 text:
Page Forty ’31 YEAR BOOK Personnel—Men’s Hockey Team—continued. SIMON COOK (Right Forward)—He plays a good heady game (when he is not in, the “cooler”). His policy is to resort to rough tactics thereby taking advantage of his 130 pounds. LLOYD McDONALD (Left Forward)—He plays hockey as well as he writes minutes. Not being satisfied with scoring for his own team he occasionally registers a marker for the opposing team. We call that some scoring! ! ERNEST FROST (Centre)—A very rough diminutive player but plenty speedy on the offensive. Said to be as cool as his name suggests but that is only a suggestion. (?) ALBERT VAYRO (Right Forward)—The fastest and most beautiful skater on the squad. A man who can be relied on to supply that essential winning punch. MR. SHEANE (Coach)—Much credit is due to Mr. Sheane ’s efficient coaching for the outstanding success of the hockey team. The team takes this opportunity to express their sin¬ cere gratitude. Three cheers for Mr. Sheane! D. C. PICKARD—A team can never be said to be any better than its trainer. Ours is no exception. Not a little of the Normal hockey team’s success can be traced to its trainer— namely “Dave.” Ladies’ Basketball HOUSE LEAGUE Early in the Fall Sergeant Sutherland was mobbed by some three hundred girls and asked to form a house league. Being a willing young man and ever ready to please the ladies, he complied with the request and some twenty teams were organized. This scheme, however, was not very successful, so after Christmas the Sergeant, together with the valuable assis¬ tance of Miss Kidney, organized a league of seven teams. This scheme has been approved of by the girls and great vim and pep has been shown by all the girls being on time, etc.,—ask the Sergeant. At present IIC is on top—having lost no games. However, IC is running a close second and IIC will have to watch her step if she is to remain victorious. However, led by Betty Stevenson, the girls feel confident of winning the league. SCHOOL TEAM Although the girls did not enter a team in the league, city or provincial, they did very well and played some splendid exhi¬ bition games. The girls were defeated only by the Central Grads — Calgary’s only senior ladies’ team — there being a difference of only one point in the score favoring the Grads. The girls met the Gibsons, Follies. Y.W.C.A., and Calgary champion Wittichens, and managed to take them all into camp. The team is looking forward to a trip—probably to Lethbridge. In case you have never met this team of whom we are so justly proud, let me introduce them: BETTY STEVENSON (Right Forward)—Captain Betty is also a member of the Follies Basketball Club. For two years she was captain of that team. We are all justly proud of Betty and we are of the firm belief that Alberta cannot produce a better forward or a better sport than “Our Cap¬ tain Betty.” Her specialty—long shots. DORIS KIDNEY (Left Forward)—Doris is Betty’s partner both on and off the basketball floor. Her cheery disposition has helped us all to try and play a better game of ball. Doris is also a member of the Follies—being secretary- treasurer. Doris is given to making out Basketball Schedules and we wonder what the Sergeant will do with¬ out her next year. ISOBEL HORSLEY (Left Forward)—Isobel came from East Calgary High to exhibit her ability to handle that elusive sphere and we must admit she is surely capable of taking either Doris or Betty’s place on the floor. HANNAH TOONE (Centre)—The tallest member of our team. She is also a member of the city champions, the Wittichens. Hannah is an asset to any team. She is always able to help with the scoring and assist the defence in checking the opponents. LOIS ARBOGAST (Centre)—Lois came to us from Central. On entering the gym her intentions were not towards “mak¬ ing the girls’ team,” but rather just to see how the boys were progressing. However, Lois has proved herself to be a very fine player, able to play either centre or guard.

Page Forty-two ’31 YEAR BOOK Personnel—Ladies’ Basketball Team—continued. GAY ROSS (Right Guard) —Gay came to us from Pincher Creek to show us how they play basketball in the south. She has proved her metal by making herself a member of the Witti- chens basketball team, and by the stellar performances she has turned in while playing with the Normal quintette. We could never have been so successful if it hadn’t been for our “always smilin’ ” Gay. LOUISE KOTKAS (Right Guard) —Her home is in Barons. However, she first took up basketball at C.H.C.I. last year. Louise tells us she got tired of golf and dibbs, etc., so she took up basketball. She is one of the heftiest and swiftest girls on the team. GERTRUDE O’HANLON (Left Guard)— We suspect Ger¬ trude has been reared in an environment of basketball from the cradle—her father was coach of Normal teams in past years. She is part of the wily defence which has stopped the best forwards opposing teams could send against it. Chief concern is contriving to escape the plague of personal fouls levied by righteous officials. Men’s Basketball Early in the Fall, a basketball club, which was to dictate the policy of the school along this line, was organized with the following officers: Hon. President.Dr. Coffin. President .A. E. Hutton. Secretary .Florence McCammon. Treasurer ...Gerald Snow. The Club decided to enter a team in. the intermediate division of the province. The team was duly organized and under the able coaching of Sgt. Sutherland was ready for action shortly before Christmas. The team has had almost unprecedented success, having played 16 games and won IS. The only loss they have suffered is at the hands of the Wild Cats, senior champions of this division. This game was very close and our boys were nosed out in the dying minutes of the game to lose by a meagre two points. When the league started after Christmas, the boys were in fine shape and had no difficulty in disposing of the three other intermediate teams in this division. They played championship basketball all through the league and were thus entitled to go into the semi-finals against the Y. M.C.A. Hornets from the Capital City. In the first game, played in Edmonton, our team won quite handily by a score of 48-30, thus giving them an 18 point lead to take into the second game. The second game on our home floor was more closely contested and our boys had a hard time emerg¬ ing from the game with their well earned five point lead. The combined score of the series was 89-66 giving us a decisive win by 23 points. By virtue of these wins our team played the Lethbridge Deuces, Southern Alberta Champions, for the provincial title. Only one game has been played as yet, which resulted in another victory for the scarlet and blue. The score was 36-26. The other game remains to be played, nevertheless prospects seem very favorable for copping the intermediate crown when we go into the final game at Lethbridge shortly. PERSONNEL OF THE TEAM G. SNOW (Captain) —Flashy left forward, a major cog in the scoring machine of Millar, Russell, Snow Co. Fast on his feet, knows basketball from the inside out, and has an un¬ canny ability to find the hoop. He is the heaviest scorer on the team and in one game scored forty-six points against the “Y”. Anyway what more can be said about a perfect player? H. RUSSELL —Came to us from Lethbridge, where he was on the roster of the Lethbridge Collegiate team for two years. He is a valuable asset as right forward. He plays a clean, fast game, teaming up well with the other forwards. Especially deadly on his shots from the corners of the floor. L. SHIELDS —Also hails from Lethbridge as does his team¬ mate Russell with whom he plays forward. Len is one of the fastest players on the squad, plays a superb floor game and packs a neat shot much to the consternation of opposing guards.
