First year coach G. D. Rosie Starn, an All-Ohio at Wooster College in Football and basketball, lost his opening league game to Galion, when he benched three regulars for breaking training rules. However, his A’s beat two league champions: Bucyrus of the NCO and Fremont of the Little Big Seven league, and they won two tournament games in Akron. They beat Mansfield twice which gave the A’s ten wins in the last 12 games against the top rival. Also, the relationship was almost severed because Mansfield students threw tomatoes at the AHS team bus, and another group painted the steps to McDowell auditorium. Mansfield school officials gave an apology for the incidents. Capt. Dick Paxton led the team in scoring (126 pts), and Earl Kirkpatrick was second (103 pts). It was the last year for Ashland to follow the tournament trail to the large Goodyear Gym in Akron. Principal J. E. Bohn, a member of the OHSAA Board of Control, persuaded them to switch Ashland to the Northwest District where they played most of their opponents.
