Courtland, CA Courtland-Union High School 1925 La Perita Yearbook 27

field: Joe Enos and Thornton Pylman, center field: and Harry Petri. right field, are all doing good work. Clarence Enos is a clever base stealer.
The late rains have also delayed our scheduled league games. so that only one game has been played so far. This game was played at Ione. Ione was unable entirely to get any base hits from Thinly's swift balls. The score 10 to 0 in a six inning game put the team in good humor. and this game gave Courtland some good batting practice.
The following teams are in the same league with Courtland and we expect to have contact with them soon:
Jackson Galt
Ione Elk Grove Sutter Creek
Track practice has already started. As we have some good material to be developed and an excellent track to practice upon. some good athletes ought to be turned out.

GIRLS' ATHLETICS
Much enthusiasm for basketball was shown by the girls when school opened and we began practice soon after the opening day. In spite of the fact that there was no basket ball team during the year nineteen twenty-three and twenty-four, a very good team was turned out this year. From the line-up which follows shortly. one can see that many of the team players are seniors and, therefore, these players have had some experience during the three previous school years. Dorothy Thomas. a new student. had formerly played on the first team of Rio Vista High School. However. Miss Peekema. our coach. made good use of some lower classmen. The substitutes frequently used in games which we played were Elizabeth Wiedmann, Victoria de Back and Mary Jane Thinly. The line up of the team follows:
Margaret Wiedmann Right Forward
Dorothy Thomas Left Forward
Mary Reed Jumping Center
Alta Kirtlan Running Center
Alice Pylman Left Guard
Eleanor Bishop Right Guard
The team played Rio Vista in a practice game on the Rio Vista court and it lost by a score of thirty-nine to ten. The vast size of the court at Rio Vista handicapped the playing ability of the Courtland girls.
The first league game was played with Elk Grove one Friday afternoon, and the Courtland girls lost by one point, the score being sixteen to fifteen
The next league game was played with Galt. on our court. The Galt girls were victorious, by the score of nineteen to fourteen.
Our girls got even with Elk Grove in the latter's return league game. played on our court, by winning in a score of nineteen to nine.
In the return game with Galt our team was defeated by a very narrow margin in spite of many handicaps. During the game. two Courtland girls were taken out of the game because of serious injuries and the arrival of the Weidmann girls at the crucial moment enabled the referees to continue the game, for at the beginning of the game, six Courtland girls only were present.
