L T , JANUARY 31.1938. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELL-SVILLE, PA. PAGE FIVE Basketball I Basketball Sportoriais By JOHN H. WHORIC Sports Editor 20 YEARS OF BASKETBALL (Part Seven) A recapitulation of records made by Conncllsville High School baskcteers during thc 19 schedules that have already been played since thc Orange and Black first enrolled for the cage program of thc Western Pcnn-yl- vanit Interscholastic Athletic League , shows that the Cokcrs won 280 games while losing 157 in both league and independent competition. Of tnc 437 games plaed, 210 were in the W. P. I. A. L. with the High School capturing 116 decisions while dropping 94. Independent play found thc Cokers chalking up 164 victories and 63 defeats. William E. Doldc has been,coaching thc dribblers since thc season of 1928 and his 10-year record shows 118 victories as against 66 setbacks of which number 69 were captured in the W. P. I. A. L. as compared with 49 league reversals. Coach Dolde produced two of ' Connellsville's sectional championship quintets, his first duiing his initial season with thc Orange and Black in the winter of 1928 and his second in 1933. It was during thc incumbent mentor's rcgTme that the best flve-year record was enjoyed by thc Ccker baskcteers--from'1932 to 1936, toth inclush e--under Doldc's tutelage. During this stretch the Orange and Black chalked up 66 victories as against 18 trimmings. Of this record, 43 triumphs and 13 defeats were in thc W. P. I. A. L. The best record of any one team was made in the 1924 season when the Orange and Black baskcteers came through with 23 victories and four defeats, losing but one in 10 league starts. On this club, the Cokcrs' first championship five, was Ray Y. Welsh who was a brilliant guard and captain and who later went on to distinguish himself with a great performance at Waynesburg ,_ College, winning for himself the distinction of an all-college guard. As far as has been learned, he has stood out among all the Coker graduates for sensational playing with a collogc quintet. This article brings to a close the scries presenting short reviews ol Conncllsville High School basketball since thc school entered W. P. I. A. L. competition--this season is the 20th consecutive. Because space and time are limited, it ha! been necessary to condense these reviews.)
