Transcript ROB MIDDLETON RONNIE SAWYER BOB LOVELACE JOHN LAWHON JOHN BEEN TOMMY JARRIEL Under the keen eyes of Coach John Hoff, the tennis team made a strong showing this year against such tough opponents as Oklahoma A&M and Tulsa University. The team was fortunate in having the return of three letter- men: John Been, defending champion of the Missouri Valley Conference in both singles and doubles, Bob Lovelace, a senior, and Tom Jarriel, a junior. Adding drive and points in their first year with the varsity team were Ronnie Sawyer, John Lawhon, and Rob Middleton. The excellent shape of this year's team was due to the fact that only one starter was lost from last year's team. That starter was Kenneth Wagstaff who, along with John Been, traveled to Seattle, Washington in June, 1954, to participate in the National Intercollegiate Tennis Championship. Maurice Holleyfield scores with left jab . . . Coach Danny Orsak had the difficult job of initiating boxing to the University for the first year in the school's history. Eight boxers started on a tough schedule against experienced boxing teams. Under Trainer Tom Wilson the team slugged out two bouts apiece with Louisiana State University and the University of Oklahoma. The season ended with the NCAA Tournament at Idaho State College with a representative from the University participating. 354 John Lawhon, Rod Middleton, Tommy Jarriel, John Been, Bob Lovelace, Ronnie Sawyer, Coach John Hoff.
