Mountlake Terrace Grade Team Defeats Edmonds
    Mountlake Terrace nosed out Edmonds, 26-20, last Friday in a low-scoring eighth grade basketball game.
    The Terrace moved out to a 3-1 first quarter lead, but a second period rally gave Edmonds a 7-4 lead at halftime. A 12-point third quarter for Mountlake Terrace moved it back in front to stay. Dick Schwhem, Edmonds center, was top scorer with 10 points. Chuck Holman tallied eight for the winners.

Edmonds Graders
Defeat Esperance
Edmonds eighth graders stepped along in the winning footsteps of the high school grid squad last Friday by submerging Esperance, 19-0, in a flag football contest.
     The win left the team with a one and one record. Edmonds dropped its opener to Alderwood Manor two weeks ago, 12 to 0. Each eighth grade team plays a home and home series during the season, so the two teams will meet again later in the schedule.
    Next game for the eleven, coached by Clyde Irving, will be 2 p.m. Friday against Mountlake Terrace on the Edmonds field.
    In last week's contest, the Edmonds line showed vast improvement over the first tilt. Clifford Shaw scored all three touchdowns from his fullback spot to spark the attack. Only successful try-for-point was made when Dick Minugh crossed the goal on an end around. The passing of halfback Dick Schwehm also came in for praise by Coach Irving.
    Starting lineup for Edmonds had Minugh and Johnny McGraw, ends; Gary Minugh and Eddie Sylvia, tackles; Douglas Joyce and Philip Jenkins, guards; Dick Vollan, center; Wayne Ballinger, quarterback; Johnny Miller and Schwehm, halfbacks, and Shaw, fullback. Others seeing action in cluded Jay Cockrum, Arnie McKay, Dale Stein and John Magnuson.
    Boys turning out for the eighth grade team include:
    Wayne Bellinger, Johnny Miller, Johnny McGraw, Dick Minugh, Philip Jenkins, Eddie Sylvia, Virgil Allbery, Jay Cockrum, Dale Stein, Donald Hawkinson, Fred Frederickson, Ward Phillips, Douglas Joyce, Dick Schwehm, Clifford Shaw, Jerry Lambe, Darrell Greer, Steve Beck, Harvey Garrett, Gregory Bergere, John Magnuson, Arnie McKay, Paul Sorensen, Dick Vollan, Bob Bean, John Harris, Bob McAllister, Douglas Openshaw, Gary Sallee, and Gary Minugh.

    Action in the District 15 eighth grade flag football league came to a halt last week with Alderwood Manor roosting atop the standings with six wins and no losses.
    The championship eleven sailed past Edmonds 20-0 last week and squeezed out a 7-6 victory over winless Esperance to keep its record clean.
    Edmonds ended its season Friday with a 12-0 win over Mountlake Terrace. Dick Schwhem made the first TD on a reverse around the left side. Clifford Shaw tallied the second six-pointer on a quick opener.
    The Edmonds lineup had McGraw, Jenkins, Sylvia, Vollan, Joyce, Gary and Dick Minugh in the line and Schwhem, Miller, Shaw and Bellinger in the backfield. McAllister and Cochran also saw action.

Edmonds Grade Five in Victory over Alderwood

Edmonds Graders
Defeat Esperance
Dick Schwehm's trusty right arm sailed four passes into touchdown territory plus one extra point toss last week to lead the Edmonds eighth grade footballers to a 25-0 win over Esperance.
     On the receiving end of the six pointers were Dick Minugh, Johnny Miller and John McGraw. McGraw snared two of them. Miller caught the extra point pass. Coach Clyde Irving gave the line a pat on the back for its play that gave the backs a chance to operate.
    The starting lineup had Dick Minugh and Johnny McGraw at ends, Gary Minugh and Phil Jenkins, tackles; Douglas Joyce and Eddie Sylvia, guards; Dick Vollan, center; and McGraw, Wayne Bellinger, Miller, Schwehm and Clifford Shaw, backs. Also seeing action were linemen Dale Stein, Johnny Magnuson, Gregory Bergere, Jerry Lambe, Gary Sallee and Fred Frederickson and backs, Paul Soreson, Ward Philips and Jay Cockrum.
Edmonds Graders
Win Two Games
    Two victories were rolled up last week by Coach Clyde Irving's Edmonds eighth grade eleven with Woodinville and Mountlake Terrace supplying the victims. Both tilts were flag games played on the Edmonds field.
    Woodinville took home a 24-0 licking last Tuesday with sharp passing and blocking marking the win. Johnny McGraw tallied three touchdowns on long passes from Dick Schwehm. The fourth TD came on a quick opener with Clifford Shaw scooting for the six points.
    Rain kep action in Friday's meeting with Mountlake Terrace pretty much to ground plays, but it was a long pass from Schwehm to Johnny Miller that resulted in the game's only touchdown. Edmonds won it, 6-2. The Terrace eleven picked up two points when Schwehm fumbled behind the goal line.
    Starting lineup for both games had Johnny McGraw and Dick Minugh at ends; Phillip Jenkins and Gary Minugh, tackles; Eddie Sylvia and Douglas Joyce, guards; Dick Vollan, center, and Clifford Shaw, Johnny Miller, Dick Schwehm and Wayne Bellinger, backs. Johnny Magnuson and Dale Stein also saw action in the Woodinville game. In the Terrace tilt, Stein was the only reserve breaking into the lineup.
    Edmonds eighth graders romped to a 34-17 win over Esperance last Friday in a District 15 Grade School basketball game. Dick Schwehm led the scoring with 14 points. B. Baker was tops for Esperance with 9.

Thank you, Dick Schwehm!
  Newspaper sports reports on this page were submitted by Dick Schwehm, with the acknowledgement that his Grandmother had saved them from the Edmonds paper and gave them to him when she moved to Seattle. Like Dick's note with the materials read, " ... there are a lot of names that I think the people involved would enjoy seeing again. After Phil Jenkins' memorial I realized that these were good memories of life in Edmonds."

Edmonds LL Team
To Vie For Trophy
   Edmonds, Mid-City League champs, will compete in the first annual Snohomish County Little League Baseball Tournament at Bagsaw Field in Everett, Tuesday and Wednesday.
    Four teams will vie for the Everett Daily Herald trophy which will annually be awarded the county champions.
   In addition to the Edmonds entry, there will be two teams, from Everett and the top nine from the Marysville league.
   Tommy Kjolso, Edmonds' ace hurler, will probably get the starting nod for the pitching chores for the local nine. Either Dick Schwehm or Larry Kladnick will be behind the plate.
   Announcement was made last week that Edmonds will be represented by two teams in the Mid-City Little League next summer. The other members of the circuit are Alderwood, Lynnwood and Merry Tillers.
Engels Tops Hitters
   Dick Engels, first sacker, led the Edmonds little leaguers in the hitting department for the season with a sizzling .480 average, it was announced by Harold Williamson, Edmonds coach last week.
   Tommy Kjolso led the pitchers, chalking up five wins and no losses besides leading the squad in the home run department with 12 four-ply wallops.
    Here are the official Edmonds batting averages with the age of each player in parenthesis following his name:
