Fresman Team Getting Into Shape
Members New to College
But Nt to the Game
Goal Throws.
Tho froshmon team is Bhowing up
brilliantly at present, and it w6uld sur
prise no ono if it should omorgo next
Friday night with tho pennant, as did
tho froshmon team last year. Though
young, its members are old in
baakot-ball oxporionco, and on the
wholo have played in moro matohes and
known tho gamo a longor timo than
thoso of any othor of tho competing
teams, unless perliaps, tho sophomore.
Tho froshmon team is ospociallytrong
at goal throwing, haying for forwards,
Miss Margaret Pillsbury and Miss Both
"Wallace, and for center Miss Ina Git
tings and Miss Inis Evorett. Both
guards are good at goal making, (Miss
Ethel Amos, tho captain of tho team,
and Miss Ena Braoh). Misses Ames,
Everett and Pillsbury, have played to
gether for something like four years, on
tlie Lincoln liigh Bchool team, and have
been in many matches. Thoy are swift
players, skillful at passing and clever at
eluding tho best of guards. MIbh Git
tings is another player of experience,
coming from tho Superior team, last
year's intorscholnstic champions. Miss
Wallace of tho Omaha high school and
tho Omaha Y. W. O. A. teams, has long
ranked as ono of tho most skillful throw-
ore in the state. Miss Brach, from Has
tings, is perhaps tho newest player on
tho teain.Sho will play in her first match
Friday night, serving as tho colleague
of Miss Ames at guard. Both aro ac
customod to other positions, But Miss
Brach has good height for guarding, and
Miss Ames in default of finding a moro
experienced guard on her team assigned
herself tho difficult rolo of looking after
Miss Jausa, tho 'varsity forward, and
tho hopo of tho sophomore toam. It
need hardly bo Maid that the sophomore
freslimou contest will bo ono of the crit
ical contests of tho evening, calling out
not a little high-geared interest and
class enthusiasm.
