Basketball 1935

The 1934-35 Blue and White

On this day 83 years ago, the basketball team topped McBurney, 35-19.

Here is the account from Res Gestae 1935:

The Ruffnermen with a great offensive in the first half bowled over the favored McBurney team by a 35-19 score. The city fellows had a fine passing attack, but with [Everett] Welch and [John] Cather sinking shots from all corners of the court, and with [George] Fleury and [Robert] Kesler holding up staunchly on defense it proved a one-sided battle until late in the game when the seconds were sent in to complete the slaughter.

Charles Ruffner’s boys finished 9-5 that season.
