Page 6 THE VOICE May, 1963 Sports Press Box PICTURED HERE IS FIRST FSTC — CIAA TENNIS TEAM Racket From The Tennis World MARVIN W. LUCAS Our newest athletic team is faring quite well. The Bronco Tennis Squad, under Coach Page Saunders, has made relatively good showing during its premier season. The team is composed of juniors Jesse Wil liams, Samuel Dove, and Marvin Stokes, sophomore Floyd Howard, and freshman Wilber Wilson. All are expected to be back next season and we anticipate a fine season. Through the first eight matches the Bronco work-sheet looks something like this: April 3 — Lost to North Carolina College — 6-0 April 8 — Won from Livingstone — 5-1 April 18 — Lost to Elizabeth City — 4-3 April 24 — Won from Livingstone — 4-3 April 26 — Lost to North Carolina College — 5-2 April 30 — Lost to Elizabeth City — 6-1 May 3 — Lost to Saint Augustine’s — 4-1 May 6 — Lost to Saint Augustine’s — 4-2 ' '-V ' 'I: ' , mr.- FAYETTEVILLE STATE’S BASEBALL PITCHERS — left to right: Key L. Holt, Wilbert Cotton, John Lucas. Scores Of 1963 Baseball Season OPPONET OUR SCORE THEIR SCORE Broncos Plead Support M. WALKER The non-support on the part of a good number of students at Fay etteville State Teachers College has recently come to the attention of several Bronco baseball players. After losing to AUen University of South Carolina, 13-3, a member of the team asked me, “Walker, did you notice how the students stayed until the last out? Even though their team seemed to have had the game won, they stayed anyway.” Questions like this have come from several players and a few student loyalists. As a member of the team and a lover of sports, I am asking on be half of the FSTC teams that you give us the support we need to rep resent you as best we can. Broncos Lose MARLYN WALKER The Broncos opened the 1962-63 Baseball Season by losing to Shaw University and to Maryland State by scores of 10-6 and 7-6 respec tively. Bronco pilot. Coach Hubert Doub, sent his knuckle-balling southpaw, James Whitted, against the Shaw Bears. Whitted maintain ed almost perfect control for six innings. Coach Doub then called curve-balling Johnny Largent. Then Shaw unleased its heavy artillery and took a 5-3 lead. The continu ous drizzle of rain and the muddy field had nothing to do with the spirited Broncos. Trailing by two runs going into the bottom of the sixth inning, the Broncos got two base runners by way of a walk and a single. Then glue-fingered Willie Woodard slammed a single to cen ter field allowing both runners to score and tie the score at 5-5. At this point the rain fell harder and the umpire threatened to call the game. But unfortunately for the Broncos, they agreed to continue for at least another inning. That additional rain-plagued inning was just enough for the Bears to score five runs and to take a 10 5 lead. The never-say-die Broncos scored one run in the last of the seventh inning. Then both coaches and the umpire agreed to stop the game to prevent injuries that might have been caused by the rain and the muddy diamond. In the second Central Intercol legiate Athletic Association outing, the Broncos lost a hear-breaker to a scrappy Maryland State nine. Fire-balling Willard Cotton pitched superb innings. Although the Bron co infield committed several costly errors. Cotton was able to hold a 6-3 lead going into the ninth inning. At one point, Maryland State load ed the bases with one out. Then Cotton settled down and ended the inning by striking out the next two batters. The ninth frame proved fatal to Cotton’s expert performance as Maryland scored four runs on two errors. So ends the story of the hard luck Broncos. “But,” as one team - member commented, “we never give up.” Track News MARVIN W.
