Loyola Defeats American Five Eagles Unable to Repeat the Early Conquering of Baltiffloreans [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 20 February 1930
Loyola Defeats American Five Eagles Unable to Repeat the Early Conquering of Baltiffloreans Loyola College of Baltimore evened up its series with the Eagle cagers by defeating the latter in the Evergreen gymnasium , Wednesday night , February 5 , to a score of 30-19 . The Eagle quintet very seldom clicked as it did in the previous defeat of the Baltimoreans by the narrow margin of 21-18 . Because of one of those inexplainable slumps , the Loyola cagemen had easy going . For the first few minutes , both quintets were deadlocked , and neither could get an appreciable margin . However , with the score of 6-5 , Loyola started an invincible offensive which smothered the Eagles vain attempts under a barrage of field goals . American University finally ended the 10-point attack with a field goal . The large margin proved to be too much for any of the Eagles rallies to overcome . Curtis , _Intriepi , and Bender of the Evergreen cagers each accounted for three goals . Lanky Oscar Sells was h...

Spring Sports to Be Limited Tennis , Kittenball , and Interclass Contests Fill Program The Faculty Athletic Committee at a recent meeting definitely decided that there would be no major spring sport this coming season . It was at first thought that there might be possibilities of forming either a track team or a baseball nine , but with this decision all chances of obtaining a major spring sport , for this year at least , have been abandoned . If plans go through , however , there will probably be a tennis team organized at A . U ., and a set schedule of intercollegiate contests will be arranged under the direction of Coach Young . Numerous prospects are available , including C . Carter , Jarvis , Shloss , Faus , Manning , and Colison , of last year s tennis tournament ; and Olmstead , former captain of the University of Hawaii s tennis team .
