Bancroft closes fine season BANCROFT'S JUNIOR LEGION baseball team earned another trip to the state tournament last weekend but bowed to Ottumwa 14-1 in the first round. Playing without the services of pitcher Dick Diers and center fielder Tom Nemmers, Bancroft managed just five hits, two by Steve Schneider. The game was called after eight innings because of rain. Despite the loss, Bancroft finished with a fine record and prospects are excellent for next year.
