BOYS' SPORTS

 A Laneite is especially proud of the teams that represent his school. This graduation will see many of Lane's famous sports figures depart, but I am quite sure that their names will be always remembered.

BASKETBALL

In June, three of the best basketball players Lane has even seen will graduate; Richard "Chink" Gaines, Cliff Daniels, and Bob Oakes. With these fellows will go memories of thrilling home games and of championship games. Though our team never won city honors, we were rated as one of the best in the city. In the words of Coach Sam Laffel, it is summed up pretty well. "This year's team was the greatest team Lane has ever had." Many will miss those games, seeing Chink drive through for two points or seeing Cliff or Bob take a set shot and hearing the swoosh of the basket as the ball goes in. I'm sure though we will always remember those glorious games against Richmond Hill, our arch rivals, and against Newtown and Forest Hills, and the Queens Championship games, in which we were beaten by these two Cinderella teams. But Chink Gaines proved that Lane has the best, when he won the All-Star City Trophy this year.

 

SWIMMING

 This season the Lane swimming team gave an almost perfect performance, win-fling 6 out of 9 meets. The Mermen did not lose until their 4th meet, and then the score was 31-30. But the hoys came right hack as strong as ever against Jamaica, one of the higher ranking teams, and swam away with the winning honors.  
     The mermen were represented in the All City Championship by Vince Bellafiore, diving, and Paul Dana, free styling. Paul turned out to be one of the best in all city. Lane was also represented in the Harrighan Memorial meet with Vince Bellafiore and Paul Dana.
     Some of the mermen who will he leaving in June are Ray Ausrotas, Vincent Bellafiore, Arthur Cooper, Paul Dana, Joseph Dovydaitis, Raymond Ehrlich, Norman Landsman, and Bill Judge. Yes, Doc Schoening turned out a terrific hunch of swimmers. We will always remember them.
