With the elimination of Greensboro
from the state championship baseball
running finu was written to a very suc
cessful year in the field of athletics.
d'he past year, besides finding the
local high school ranking well among
the leading high schools of the state
along athletic lines, also found the de
velopment of a wealth of new material
in the phases of the different sports en
tered into by G. H. S.
Athletics got away to a flying start
when Greensboro produced one of the
finest and cleanest football teams in the
history of the institution. Playing the
kind of game that sent practically every
■opitonent that they meet down in de
feat, this bunch of husky warriors ad-
vancerl to the western finals only to
lose in a heart-breaking contest to “the
F’ighting Gentlemen” of Charlotte High.
Again in basketball the school won
further laurels when both the boys and
girls had a very successful season. The
boys won three games toward the state
championship before being eliminated.
At the meet sponsored by State College
and held at Raleigh Greensboro went
to the finals. The girls, too, consider
ing the scarcity of seasoned material
with which the coaches had to work,
did splendid work.
Under the expert coaching of Coaches
Coletrane and Johnson one of the scrap
piest gangs of horse-hide wallopers ever
seen on the local diamond was pro
Track, too, was judged the second
l)est in the state; the boys meeting de
feat only at the hands of Charlotte
and, then, by a very narrow margin.
Several state records were smashed by
members of the local team.
Tennis and swimming, also, showed a
decided advancement in their fields of

The girls’ championship series in
group five was won by the Greensboro
nine, on the Buff'alo field Thursday,
May 19, b,y a score of 11-10 in favor
of Greensboro. The Greensboro star
The score was close until the last of
the fourth inning, with Winston in the
lead, but making six runs in the fourth
inning the Greensboro girls came to the
front and remained ahead throughout
the rest of the game.
This is the second year in succes
sion that the Greensboro girls have
won the championship title, losing only
one game this season.
Idle Winston-Salem girls' track team
won the District Five title by a margin
of 1-3 point over G. IT. S., May G, at
Cone Park. The Twin City girls scored
31 1-3 points to Greensboro’s 31. High
Point was third with 14 1-3 points,
while Alexander High of Graham was
fourth with 4 1-3 points.
IValker, of Greensboro, was high scor
er of the meet. She took first place in
To-yard dash, first in hurdles, and third
in standing broad jump, making a total
of IG points.
Fvel.vn Rives has the distinct lionor
of being the first president of the Girls’
Monogram Club. Evelyn has been a
splendid leader and one of our guiding
lights over rough ground. The club will
miss her leadership next year, but she
has left such splendid ideals that we
are sure to feel her influence even after
she has gone.
Marion Curtis is our other officer,
secretary—and fortunately she is only
a junior now; that means we shall have
her help again another year. Marion is
one of those fiuiet, unobtrusive workers
who accomplishes more than we realize.
Always read.y—that’s Marion.
Rachel Lipscomb comes as nearly be
ing one who goes out for all sports as
any girl in school. Her “G” represents
a great variety of sports and a great
sport wears it.
Miss Dry—“Auntie Blossom”—has
been a fine leader for the Girls’ Mono
gram club so that the girls are inspired
to do bigger and better things. She has
been a sympathizing friend in time of
need and a true sport in time of fun.
Marioji Geogregan has been a real
asset to the club this year. She comes
to us from Reidsville and has joined
our ranks in a real sportsmanlike way.
Rose Goodwin has worn her “G” for
quite a while now, but never just quite
satisfied with her accomplishments, she
is going after a “GNC” strong. Hockey
is Rose’s favorite sport, in which she
plays a hard game.
There were quite a few policemen
stuffed with pillows and draped in the
attire of a cop—Boys wearing hats
passed on their way to practice for the
operetta, “Pirates of Penzance,” which
will be given at the National tonight.
