The Berman nine Will lose two of their
stars this term, Lou Capitelli and George O'Kane. Last season, our team
was referred to as the team that couldn't lose. Many times Lane was
behind, but in the last inning always got the run that counted. Yes, the
fighting spirit in these boys gained Lane another "first."
Last term, for the first time
in the history of Lane, a track team was competing with other schools.
Coached by Mr. Retkewick this term, it went on to win the "1952 City
Novice Championship." Before this feat took place, none of the other
competing schools had ever recognized Lane as a possible contender. When
the meet was over, other coaches just gasped and couldn't believe it.
Lane's fighting spirit had done it again. Members of this miracle team
were George Webb, Marc Sciacchitano, Bert Engelhardt, and George Young.
Our bowling team started in
1942. Since then Lane has had many great stars, all of whom attend
yearly reunions. We have had many great teams, and have even won the
championship four times. Because Lane has turned out so many stars in the
past, they are referred to as the unofficial bowling headquarters of the
city. However, the team is losing a great star, Ernest Dodegge, who bowled
the high team score of 228. Mr. Rubinow is in charge of this great team.
Lane is starting even more teams,
such as the tennis and golf teams. Going by past records, I should say
these teams, too, will meet with success. Lane can point with pride to
these athletic activities.
