Track, Soccer, Volleyball
Prospects for the Oakland High Track Teams are bright this year. We hope to score high when the meet is held May twenty-eighth at the Fair grounds. The O. H. S. came out a good second in the meet last year and this year we expect to do better. We have a right to expect this because more girls' teams will enter from our school, and they expect to score points for 0. H. S.
We are at a slight disadvantage compared to other County High Schools because of the fact that our totals are separate from the Oakland Grammar School. This is due to the fact that the Oakland Hi and Grammar Schools are in separate buildings. In the other schools of the county the Grammar and High School scores are totaled together. A special drive is being made to have each boy and girl in school win one of the physical qualification badges this year.
Our track team is composed of many steady performers, not just a few brilliant ones. Among those expected to win points this year are: R. Glotfelty, E. Hinebaugh, R. Lohr, W. Shreve, R. Roy, who already hold Garrett County records. Joe Sollars is expected to report in the junior high jump this year. He won last year by a large margin. On a dry day we expect him to beat the County record of 5 ft. 2 in. which he equaled last year
O. H. S. was well represented last fall by the Soccer Team. On many occasions this team showed splendid work and although it did not win the championship, we all feel proud of it and know each player worked hard for O. H. S. Members of the team were: Joseph Sollars, Charles Dodge, Walter Killius, Wilbur Gnegy, Wilmot Bowen, John Stevenson, Donald Porter, Kenneth Graves, Earl Wolfe, Richard Glotfelty.

The opening game of volley ball was played April 29, 1930 in "The Cage" between Friendsville High and Oakland High. The girls did exceedingly well, with much improvement over last year's games. At the end of the first half the score was 4-2 in Oakland's favor. There was much excitement, surely we were going to win the first game of the season. At last the whistle sounded. The score was 7-7. They decided to play the tie off with 3 minutes in each half. Oakland's team got excited and were defeated by the score of 10-1.
Agnes Helbig, the captain, played an excellent game. Sarah Stanton and Bernadine Canty are players of unusual ability. A little more experience and our team will be on top.
