Athletics FOOTBALL 195 3 The 1953 Football Season saw Central mak- ing its most impressive showing of recent years, and saw several of our players earning the honor of being chosen for the All-District and the All'- Public League teams. In each game our "Redwings" battled until the last second of the clock ran out, but still they were unable to win a game out of the six played in the league, and were only able to tie two. In the first game, our Varsity fought McKin- ley, the 1952 League Champion, to a CO-OD checkmate. A strong Beaumont team defeated Central C14-Oj in the second game, and South- west, the strongest team in the league, passed over Central C34-181 in a gruelling game. Soldan-Blewett fought Central to a C14-145 standstill,, and the Redwing's last two games, though sharply contested, were lost to Cleveland and Roosevelt. i Central's "B" team showed their strength by winning four of ten games, losing only four and tying-the other two. With some of the "B" team moving up to Varsity next year, chances are that we will have a good season. Varsity letters were awarded to Les Bush- mann, Joe Crowe, Wayne Cupp, Bill Clarke, Jim Daugherty, Bob Griner, Ed Gambill, Bill Davis, Elmer King, Gene Knopp, Bob Lukitsch, Art Moser, Bob Panosh, Bill Root, Norman Wanger, Ronald Schnur, Bob Winter and Dave Grewe CManagerj. "B" Team letters were awarded to Ernest Fields, Don Fox, Jim Gambill, Farro Giannola, Leroy Killian, Gerald Lancaster, Don Mason, Mike Moran, Bob Murdock, Alan Polley, Charles Richardson, Fred Ryan, John Smith, Bob Tompkins, George Viviano, Charles Wal- ters, Larry Randazzo, Ray Stiffler, Glynn Miller, Don Svoboda and Tim Montelione. CROSS-COUNTRY 19 5 3 Central's Redwings ran a long way last year and made some good showings. But this year, as in past years, our Cross-Country team was suffering from Central's most dreaded disease, an undermanned team. While most high schools put ten or twenty men on the Held, we had only six. The six, R. Allison, E.Brunk, R. Norvall, J. Rimini, A.Rios and M. Tarpley, all lettered. And they earned their right to those letters by refusing to give up against all odds. Our Redwings were pretty tired by the time the season ended, for they had been able to cap- ture third in the City Meet, seventh in the East Side Invitational and eighth in the State Meet. When one of our boys had an off day and did not take his usual place, we lost many points. Other schools always had somebody to fill in a vacant spot. Central did not have a good season last year, but we had a good team - a team that never forgot it represented Central. SWIMMING 1953-54 In the 1953-1954 Swimming Season, Cen- tral's 'iMermen" captured third place in the City League, and tied for fourth in the State Meet. To show exactly how good our team was in the individual events of the City League, at least one of our men took either first or second place: and then in the stiff competition of the State Meet, we had two Hrst place winners. With all but a few of the boys returning next year, Coach Ray Clilfe has high hopes for just as good if not a better season in 1955. The first two City meets saw Cleveland and Beaumont swimming by our "Tankmen", but Central's swimmers came back in the third meet to defeat Roosevelt C61-265. In the last three meets, the Central' "Mermen" scored continually to overcome Soldan-Blewett C62-143, then Hadley C42-351 and, finally, McKinley Q68- 9l. The two extra meets against St. Louis U. I-Iigh, our "Mermen" won by the scores 41 to 36, and 43 to 34. Those receiving Varsity Letters were: R. Davidson, J. Hogue, C. Morgan, L. Smith, L. Bushman, W. Cupp, H. Bittick, J. Bittick, D. Mana, J. Wolfe, W. Freebersyser, J. Gunn and L. Killian.

Athletics BASKETBALL 195 3-54 As the final buzzer rang the end to the 1953- 54 Basketball Season, Central had a pretty de- jected l'Bunch" of players for a varsity team. The Varsity Redwings felt that they had let their Alma Mater and their school mates down by not winning a game out of the seven played. But then, too, maybe we let our team down. When they went out onto the court, there were only a few Ca very fewl friendly faces to be seen in the stands to cheer them on. There was no one out there to give them that added cour- age and zest, so necessary to win. An excited yell might have helped the Redwings when they were putting on a sudden spurt that could have been a winning score. I don't think we have our team to blame for their bad showing, nor was it Coach Carlisle's fault. We, the student body, are the only ones who can give our school a winning team. The players come from us, and if we give our whole- hearted support, they'll win for us. l'Come on, Central, let's go". Special mention goes to Lajuan Kirk and Harold McCracken for their showing during the season. TRACK 1954 Although we have to go to press before the l954 Track Season is Hnished, we can include a brief account of its activities under Coach Kirn and the new Assistant Coach, Mr. Thuet. The team won three of its first six meets. Cuene Pill- man tied for third in the pole vault in the very tough District Meet. In the middle of the sea- son the team was given a very hard blow by the injury of our star mile runner, Max Tarpley. The team includes about twenty-five boys, and all but six of them will be back next year. Fol- lowing are some of the members with their main events: M. Tarpley, 880 and mile: Ci.
