Coach Maynard chose Kendall ■
Buckner, a sophomore righthander
from Siler City, to open the two
game series against Western Caro
The Quakers jumped to a quick
three-run lead in the first and John
son was walked, Parker singled and
Gann reached first on an error to
load the bases. Cook then singled
in two runs. Foltz and Hampton
next walked to force in another run.
This was all that was needed for
as the game progressed it became
apparent that Pitcher Buckner was
to be the master. He scattered six
hits and struck out nine batters to
shut out the West Carolinians. It
was the third time in a row that
Buck has gone the distance.

Randy Parks got the nod from
Coach Maynard to pitch in the final

the Quakers in the Conference
Danny Tharpe (of Western Car

single and a home run to three oth
er Western hits to move them to a
quick four-run lead in the first two
innings. After this early outburst
Lefty Parks settled down to pitch
seven innings of rimless ball.
Composite Batting Totals
The following is the story of Guilford's batting for the 1963 season.
The statistic headed RP is Runs Produced. It is the amount of runs
scored by a player plus his runs batted in minus his home runs. The
statistic is designed to show a player's total run production.

J V Football Next Fall
The Guilford College Athletic
Department has announced the in
itiation of a junior varsity football
program for next fall.
The purpose of this program is
1. It gives the coaches a chance
to look over the freshman pros
pects. As there are two J. V. games
before the first varsity contest,
Coach Stewart and his staff should
be able to get a fairly good idea of
which freshman can help us.
2. It gives the boys who normally
would ride the b°nch a chance to
play. It is hoped that this step

argument that ensued as the umpire
called Mickey safe. Close plays like this
one marked the game which Guilford
finally lost in the tenth inning, five to
