All of Them
HE EXPECTS MANY MORE
Glenn (Red) Goodwin, one of Greens
boro High’s best athletes, has won
many team honors. “Red” has gone
out for practically all of the major
sports of the school and has made a
success in all that he has entered.
Last year on the football team, play
ing halfback, he received his letter. In
the season he executed many helping
plays and showed great skill in his
action. That was Glenn’s first trial at
the game in high school.
At the Civitan track meet last year
“Red” won distinction by entering
practically all running events, and took
first place in the 300-yard novice. In
the tri-city meet in 1927 he took two
first places in 100 and 220. In the meet
on IMarch 31, 1928, Glenn unofficially
broke the 220 record. On the team he
was inter-squad captain. In the first
year in athletics he made two letters.
Along with these and several other
honors, “Red” expects to add many
more in the coming games and meets,
in which we all wish him great success.

G.H.S. GIRLS SUCCESSFUL
AT SEDGEFIELD MEET
Claire Hartsook and Louise Harrison
Share Honors in Meet at Sedge
HARTSOOK WINS JUMPING EVENT
The equestrians were superior in
numbers, but the equestriennes were
superior in prize winning ability at the
Saturday afternoon gathering of the
Sedgefield Ride and Hunt Club. Al
though the only members of their sex
among a representative field of partici
pants, Louise Llarrison and Claire
Hartsook divided the honors of the
meet between them. Louise Harrison
won first place in the ring tournament
and Claire Hartsook sailed over the bar
to win the jumping event.
Louise Harrison took first in the ring
tourney against a field of 15 contenders,
making a score of six out of a possible
nine. The next best to the winner was
five rings, for which three of the par
ticipants tied. These were Charles
Causey, Ed Landreth, and Claire Hart
sook. Likewise three of the riders tied
for third place with four rings each.
In the jumping event Claire cleared
the bar at four feet, riding Elina.
C. A. Hendrix, riding Red Bird, placed
for second. Bob Lucas sent Ginger
over the bar for third place, and Philip
Goodwin, on Dan, took the last place.
The potato race and balloon bursting
race were omitted from the event, but
are to be included next Saturdav.
Theron Brown, all-round athlete
Greensboro High, is not satisfied with
taking three first places, but decides to
take four and does it. Brown, after
taking first places in the shot-put, dis
cus, and javelin, the tri-city meet asked
Coach Lambeth if he might take a
trial at the running broad jump, which
was not looking any too encouraging
for the Gate City lads. Mr. Lambeth
leadily consented and Brown won the
event by a jump of 19 feet, 9 inches
in the first trial.
