Straight Up Builders undefeated in Coed Softball ,, BY PATTI ENGEL We have reached the halfway point of the Co Ed Softball sea- son. The new bathrooms are open, and are a very appreciated new building. The first game of the night was a thriller down to the wire. Lobster Trap took on Pebbly Beach Building Supply. Louis Mansanas opened the game with a double, followed by a triple from Chuy Sillas, then a triple from Aurora Felix. Aurora scored on the sacrifice fly, and the Lobster Trap had three on the board at the end of one. For Peb- bly Beach Building Supply, Robert Reyes took advantage of the wide open right field to hit an inside the park home run with a runner on. The Lobster Trap kept the lead with two more runs in the second. I-n the third the bats went wild for The Lobster Trap. A total of ten hits, including an inside the park homer from Mickey Mann, and an inside the park Grand Slam from LOuis Mansanas put another nine up. Pebbly Beach Building Sup- ply was keeping it close, with six hits, a walk an error and another inside the park homer from' Rob- eft Reyes to have seven cross the plate. Pebbly Beach Building Sup- ply crept closer in the fourth, with three more runs scored in the in- ning. With another run in the fifth, .Pebbly Beach Building Supply was down by one run. In the sixth inning time expired, but the inning was completed. With two outs and two runs in, Marie Chavez hit a line drive into left field. Manny Hernandez was rounding third to score wher the great throw from Josh Flynn to the equally great tag from Johnny Rome had Marmy out at the plate. Down by three, Peb- bly Beach Building Supply had two runs score before the third out was recorded. In a game that came down to the last out, The Lobster Trap held on to win l 6-15. For Pebbly Beach Building Supply, Joe Hemandez and Josh Butte both collected three hits. Robert Reyes, Beto Martin, John- ny Rome and Christina Butte all had two hits. With one hit each were Josh Flynn, Robby McCor- mick and Dustin Cookman. For the Lobster Trap Louis Mansanas and Manny Hemandez had three hits. Chuy Sillas, Jimmy Felix, Mickey Mann, Marie Ramirez, Aurora Felix, Susan Budd and Jenny Boys all collected two hits. Marie Chavez and Armando Pi- mentel each contributed one hit. The second game of the night was between the undefeated Straight Up Builders and the Catalina Cookie Co. Straight Up Builders got off to a fast start with four runs in the first. Catalina Cookie Co. answered back with a run. Straight Up Builders kept up the pressure .with two more runs in the second, and four in the third. Catalina Cookie Co. put an- other run on the board in the third. Straight Up Builders got one more in the fourth, then Catalina Cookie Co decided to make it a game and scored six in the bottom of the in- ning. Straight Up Builders wasn't giving up the lead, and added two runs in the fifth and another in the sixth. With time expired Catalina Cookie Co got another run across the plate, but fell short of the win. Final score Catalina Cookie Co 9, Straight Up Builders 14.

Lancers From page "1 FEB. 5, 1970 The Sugar Loaf has received several letters in response to the article in the Jan. 15 issue, with regards to a possible name change for the Lancers. Mr. Keith Andersen, class of '68 writes, "First of all as for the name and symbol in the future use of spirit, flags, rings and travel bags, I would suggest holding another contest--similar to that when the insignia was selected and drawn up for the school blazers. This insignia could then be sent to the Josten's Jewelry company, with which the school has been do- ing business for some years, and asked ifa new mold could be made in replica. This would require very little effort from the student coun- cil and I'm sure that Josten's'would be more than happy to oblige. "Sec(mdly, if a new name was inevitable, there shouldn't be any more printings of the Lancer Spirit flags and the surplus could be auctioned off to sentimental- ists like me. The ones the classes have now could be sold to any interested class member. I think the senior class should keep theirs and bury it as always in their time capsule in the Senior Lawn. Jim Smith the man who screened the Lancer flags would be willing to make new prints, provided he was given enough notice and coopera- tion from the student leaders." Mrs. Harry Hanover writes from Long Beach, "I suggest the name "Islanders." The present name "Lancers" can be changed to "Islanders" by adding "IS" and add a straight line to the "c" - Hence, Avalon Islanders or when Avalon is left off, Islanders.
