MAROON AND GOLD
Elon Blanks East Carolina In North State Contest
1 With seven games gone and
jBiir of them chalked as wins and
as losses, the Elon basebaU
;ad has been strictly on the
«hot ’ and "cold” list when it
came to hitting. In some games
th, Christians have hit timely and
^ell. and in others they could
BO- buy a safety.
[Buddy Montgomery, speedy
\-hman center fielder, is lead-
L the regulars with a .348 aver-
igi on 8 hits in 23 attempts. Two
players are topping him in
n averages, but neither has been
to the plate as much as 10 times,
'in addition to Montgomery, fovir
ollier play-ers are in the magic
or better circle, with Tom
pperson. Charlie Frye, Gil
Watts and Don Lichok among the
-t consistent men with the stick
jMontgomery is also leading the
nstians in runs-batted-in with
7j‘in homers with 3 and in stolen
W'ith4. Gil Watts tops the
pitchers with a pair of wins,
f'lie individual hitting for the'
seven games is as follows;

The C\iri.-.tians themselves iced

Charlie Frye singled. Buddy Mont-

There were four of the Chris
