Although the A’s lost Maurice Johnson and Arthur Echelberger to mid-year graduation, they still won the first NCO basket ball championship in AHS history. Roger Paxton was the team captain. Quinn McAdoo and Phil Lersch led the team in scoring with 112 points each. The A’s defeated co-champs Bucyrus, but lost in overtime to Marion. Both those teams made to the State Sweet 16 in Columbus. The AHS Seconds finished 13-0 for the second straight undefeated season. Over thirty businessmen gave the team a banquet at the Church of Christ. Wooster coach L.C. Boles was the featured speaker. The home court was the old West Main St. Armory next to the Town Creek.
