Courtland, CA Courtland-Union High School 1925 La Perita Yearbook 25

Courtland, CA Courtland-Union High School 1925 La Perita Yearbook 25

Mr. Ackerman was a tireless and painstaking coach and the team is greatly indebted to several new methods of playing, introduced by him. His team showed plenty of pep and never failed to observe the highest principles of true sportmanship.
The first three games played were practice games. The first game was with Fair Oaks which we won by the encouraging score of 37 to 20. Rio Vista won from us on our own court with a score of 20 to 22 but Courtland returned the compliment by winning the game at Rio Vista.
COURTLAND, 1 5-ELK GROVE, 19
This was the first league game of the season, played in Elk Grove. The defeat by us was due to lack of practice and inexperience on an outside court.
Our next game was a practice game with the California Bank Juniors, who lost to Courtland with a score of 39 to 37.
COURTLAND, 1 9-GALT. 12
This was the first game Courtland had won from Galt for the past two years. It was a clean interesting game throughout. Galt put forth her best efforts but we were fortified by intensive practice and Galt was handicapped on our court.
COURTLAND, 10-ELK GROVE, 17
Courtland had hoped to win this game but luck was against us. The game was marked by rough playing: two men of Elk Grove and one man of Court-land were put out of the game.
Another practice game was played with the Christian Brothers' College, the latter won by the score of 35 to 27.
COURTLAND, 1 7--GALT, 23
Galt retaliated in this game and although our team put up a stiff fight, Galt had the advantage of her own court and heavier team.
On the whole counting all games played. Courtland won 5 and lost 4. Unfortunately, only one of these victorious games was a league game so that Courtland will have to wait another year for the pennant.
BASEBALL
At the close of the basket ball season, we saw many baseball fans impatient to begin practice. For a time, we were without a diamond but now we have a good diamond and a track of which we are very proud. The making of this athletic field cost considerably and we are grateful to the citizens of the com¬munity who subscribed so liberally to the athletic fund.
There are promises of an excellent team this year. Much confidence is placed in our battery. Our pitcher, George Thinly, and our catcher, Paul Myers. were the stars of Hitchcock's team last year. Thinly has plenty of speed and Paul rarely misses any of Thisby's pitching balls. The latter is also a plague to all base stealers. Richard Besso. our first baseman. is constantly improving. George King is holding down second exceptionally well for a new man. Bayard Miller is doing good work at third. Barry James is back at his old position of short stop and is going stronger than ever.
