The Quakers jumped to a quick three-run lead in the first and John son was walked, Parker singled and I Cann reached first on an error to I load the bases. Cook then singled in two runs. Foltz and Hampton, next walked to force in another run. i This was all that was needed for i as the game progressed it became apparent that Pitcher Buckner was j to be the master.

Tuesday, May 7 Bandy Parks got the nod from Coach Mavnard to pitch in the final game of the Western Carolina se ries. A win here would have put the Quakers in the Conference Tournament. Danny Tharpe (of Western Car olina Basketball fame) added a 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 I lie following is tin story of Guilfords batting for the 1963 season.

Double Play. THE GUILFORDIAN and El wood Parker finishes it. The Quakers fought hack dog gedly with one run rallies in the second, fourth and fifth innings. The Quakers were down one when they came to hat in the ninth. With two out Lee ]ohnson deliver ed a clutch single to tie the score and send the game into extra in nings. In the West Carolina tenth Will Parker singled Tharpe home with what soon proved to he the win ning run. Pitcher Parks had pitched well for tlu' first nine innings hut the Guilford hatters could not help him. By the game's end they had left over fifteen runners on base. This game was the turning point in Guilford's tournament hopes. The loss necessitated a playoff with High Point for fourth place.

Wednesday, May 8 Kendall Buckner, with one day's lest, was selected to go against High Point at 11 it* Panthers' home field. From the outset it was apparent that this was not the Quakers' day. Pitcher Buckner, still recovering from the Monday game, was not his usual self as he gave up five runs. Guilford managed to score only once in the first inning when El wood Parker reached first on an error and Mickey Faulk singled him in. As a result High Point went to Lexington while Guilford took fifth place in the Garolinas Conference.
