State, 71-55 In their final dual meet sched uled for this season, Cloudbuster trackmen last Saturday triumphed for the second time over North Carolina State, turning back the Red Terrors on Fetzer Field by Score of 71-55. The victory t>rought the season’s record for the Pre-Flight track and field men to four wins, against a single loss. State captured first place in eight of the 14 events, but Navy men won all the points in the mile, two-mile, pole vault and dis cus to build up its margin of vic tory. Three weeks ago the Cloud busters defeated State at Raleigh, 82-44. The summary; One-mile: Freeman (N), Jen- Hison (N), Tierney (N), 4:52.1. , 440-yard dash: J. H.

Navy Pre-Flight School here won 53 contests, lost 16 and tied one for a winning percentage of .768 during the past year, ac cording to figures released today by the athletic department. Three of the eight teams were undefeated, and none fell below the .500 mark in wins and losses. Soccer, boxing and wrestling went through their respective-sea sons undefeated. Winning four contests in as many tries the soc cer team defeated Duke twice, Davidson and High Point College. The wrestlers won six bouts, and with the exception of a 16 to 14 victory over N. C. State, none of the matches was close. Appala chian was defeated, 25 to 10, Duke twice, 28 to 10 and 31 to 7, VPI, 28 to 8, and N. C. State in a re turn bout, 24 to 8. The boxers defeated the 65th Division, General Hospital, Ft. Bragg twice, 5 to 3 and 5l^ to 2%. VPI lost to the Cloudbusters 7 to 1, and The Citadel went under, AVz to 2%. From the standpoint of compe tition, the football team perhaps made the best record. Boasting one of the finest service teams in the country, the Cloudbusters, un der the watchful eye of Lt. Comdr. James A. Crowley, USNR, won eight, lost two and tied one. The tie was with the Georgia Pre- Flight School, and losses were to Boston College and Fordham. De feated were Catawba, Harvard, N. C. State, Temple, Syracuse, Georgetown, Manhattan, and Wil liam and Mary. Last year’s baseball nine won 14 and lost five. The cadet basket ball team won seven and lost seven for the lowest percentage of any of the teams. Its schedule, though, was unusually tough, and those stars present when the season opened completed their Pre-Flight training midway in the season. Cadet Gus Broberg, former Dart mouth captain, was the individual star. He led the team in scoring although here but half the season, and in his final game scored 31 See SPORTS RECORD, page 8 * Line-up Sparkles With Former Big Leaguers Two baseball nines from Camp Butner will furnish opposition for the rejuvenated Cloudbusters this week end. This afternoon at 1600 a con test is scheduled with the 311th Infantry, and tomorrow at the same time the Pre-Flighters and the 309th Infantry will clash. Cadets Joseph Coleman and John Sain will get the pitching assign ments. Two of the finest service teams in the country played games with the Cloudbusters last week at Norfolk. Saturday afternoon the Pre-Flighters dropped a tough 3 to 0 decision to the Naval Train ing Station, but the team came back on Sunday to defeat the Naval Air Station, 3 to 2. Both contests saw vast improvement on the part of the locals. The Saturday affair should have been a victory for Cadet John Sain, who pitched last year for the Boston Braves. He struck out 12 opposing batsmen, and showed the former major leaguers on the Norfolk nine an assortment of pitching second to none. During the encounter he struck out Don Padgett, outfielder for the Brooklyn Dodgers, three times, Phil Rizutto, Yankee shortstop, and Dominic DiMaggio, Red Sox outfielder, twice each. He gave up but six hits, only one of which was for extra bases. While Sain was hurling six hit ball. Early, on the mound for the winners, came through with a three hit masterpiece. Lt. (jg) John A. Hassett, USNR, former Yankee first baseman, connected for two of the blows, and Lieut. Alexander Sabo, USNR, Wash ington Senator catcher, collected the other. All went for naught. The game with the Air Station was another close one with Cadet Coleman receiving credit for the win, thanks to some fine relief hurling on the part of Lt, (jg) Peter W, Appleton, USNR, Coleman hurled nice ball the seven and one third innings he was on the mound although he was in constant danger. On four oc casions the losers had two or more men stranded on the bases, and the Cloudbusters pulled four fast double plays to aid the cause.
