     1935 Boy's Basketball
    The West Linn Lions had a fairly successful season this year, winning six games and losing nine. Considering that the team had been split up during the middle of the season, Coach Brown and the students have good reason to be proud of this record. 


    Rae Marsh and Kenneth Elliott, the only two veterans on the team during the first semester, were ineligible for the last half of the season. Another bad break for the Lions was the loss of Lloyd Whitten for six weeks, due to illness. After Marsh and Elliott were finished Bill Tuor was eligible.

    He played all of the second semester and was high scorer for the team.

    Individual scoring honors for the season go to Bill Tuor with a total of 67 points in 7 games. He played only in the second semester. Elliott and Marsh were next with 51 points apiece.

     1935 Boy's Football

    West Linn had the best season this year that it has had since the year of 1927. This year we had a team that turned in a record of 7 wins, 2 ties and 1 loss. A team any school could well be proud of. 


    The game of the year was West Linn vs. Oregon City. It was a night game and the night was perfect. It was a hard fought battle from start to finish. The first game was as even as a game could be played and ended, 0-0. Then second quarter was but a few minutes old when Oregon City pushed over a touchdown on a series of line plunges. The kick for point was good. Score 0-7. The Lions came back hard but threatened once in the second quarter. Third quarter Oregon City drove up to the 5 yard line but the Lions held for downs. Fourth quarter was filled almost entirely with W.L. threats. Once the Lions even garnered a touchdown when Meyers passed to Sheron for the necessary distance but the play was called back on penalty. The game ended right after this and the score remained Oregon City 7, West Linn 0.

    This year an all-conference team was picked from the Willamette Valley Conference which includes the following schools: Woodburn, Dallas, Silverton, Canby, Molalla, Newberg, Lebanon, and West Linn. On this team we had the honor pf placing four players: Ray Marsh, Charles Sheron, Karl Kahle, and Gus Meyers. Gus was the only player to receive a unanimous vote on this team.

    1935 Boy's Track 
    Coach Felix Fors has built a strong group of athletes this year, all of whom are anxious to drag in the corpse of the Pioneer Track Team. Only three lettermen make up the nucleus of this team. The few men who came back to the track team this year include Garcia, Barnes, Wisham, B. Stricklin, and Lyons. However, an unprecedented number of freshmen and sophomores have turned out this season and greatly strengthened the team.

    Because of poor weather and a muddy field, practice work started late this Spring, but the team has hit it's stride and is working regularly now. Coach Fors boasts this season to be the best ever and says that "the Lion's track team will have a pile of opponents' bones so large that it won't fit in my room."
    Girls Volleyball 

    The inter-class Volleyball season proved to be an interesting and exciting one. In the first game of the class championship series the sophomores were victorious over the juniors.
