Eight seniors returned to form the backbone of the varsity basketball team for 1966-67: Gary Raymond, Bill Shearer, Glenn Granger, Fred Heil, Bob Porta, Lex Sleeman, Jon Paddock, and Larry Brown. Co-captains were Bill Shearer and Gary Raymond.
Mr. Paddock feels that though this was a “”hard luck team,”” the boys played some good games and tried hard. Two of the best games played were the East Rochester and the Bright- on games. Fairport fought hard and lost by a slim margin to both: E. R., 42-40; Brighton, 46-40.
We are proud of the spirit shown by the boys on both teams, and we are not in the least discouraged about next year’s possibilities.
Next year, after twenty years of coaching, Mr. Paddock is retiring from coaching basketball. We thank you, Coach, for your hard work with the team; we wish you the best of luck with next year’s soccer team.
