The Black and Gold 1975
Improved JV Cagers alter Record
Trying to alter McKinley's losing basketball past, the junior varsity squad succeeded in posting a very impressive 6-8 mark, the best in several years.
Under the direction of first year head coach Alvin Tokuda with assistants Lorin Lee and Dexter Nakaji, the cagers arduously drilled on expertised ball control and consistent accuracy.
The Tigers slipped by Roosevelt in their two encounters and gave each opponent a difficult time before yielding the game. Hopefully this season was the start of a new trend in basketball competition at McKinley.
Dedication Marks JV Grapplers
The junior grapplers displayeda lot of untried talent in their quest for a second straight OIA championship but fell short with a 8-1 final season record.
The team easily romped over Waipahu 47-17 in a season opener, following two lose matches against Castle and Kaiser. The team's momentum continued with an overwhelming victory over Pearl City. Confidence gained from these matches seemed to be of no value in the mid season contest with Radford. The wrestlers came back in full force to sweep the last 4 mat matches withouta any problems.
The OIA post season tourney allowed a second opportunity to shake Radford from the top. But the Rams refused to budge and the Micks were left with an unchallenged second place.
