Frosh gutty — Sophs muddy

Mud, mud everywhere, especially on the sophomores—the result of a tug-o-war between Cuesta College’s freshmen and sophomores, with the younger set winning both dirty battles in a two-game series.
Both class presidents got into the action—Mike Gallagher, leader of the sophomores, and Randy Carter, slender and gutty boss of the frosh.
The frosh reversed the trend of last year when the sophomores twice bested the freshmen n spring and fall matches.
Even the girls joined, some not exactly dressed for the occasion. Such as Karen Henry, a cheerleader, and two other coeds dressed more for an afternoon tea than a muddy romp in the specially dug and watered arena.
The proceedings delighted everyone including the several hundred students and instructors, gathered around the mud pit. Even the losers were quite gracious about it, offering handshakes around after the awesome battle.
