1954 Gard­ner High, de­fend­ing Mas­sachusetts In­ter­scholas­tic

cham­pi­ons, were sim­ply no match for coach Perry Quimby’s Pawtucket West mer­men, who paced by Bobby Plourde’s dou­ble win, racked up their first vic­tory of the sea­son with a 4134 tri­umph. Plourde, no­tice­ably tired after hav­ing just com­pleted his col­lege en­trance board ex­am­i­na­tions, still won hand­ily with a time of 1:03.8 in the 100-yard back­stroke and in the 120 in­di­vid­ual med­ley swam to vic­tory in 1:12.6. Other Ranger win­ners were Jim Pho­topoulus 40 freestyle (20.6), Jim Chan­d­ley 100 breast­stroke (1:12.7) and slim 5-foot-5-inch, 130-pound Ed­die Mail­hot, a trans­fer from Saint Raphael Academy, walked away with div­ing honors by pil­ing up 51.5 points.

1964 Pic­tured are the Pawtucket Boys’ Club swim­mers who

are mem­bers of the Rhode Is­land All-Star Swim­ming Team that will go against the Worces­ter All-Star Swim­ming team at the club’s pool. The mem­bers are Mark Len­non, Ed Hunt, Art Boyce, Pa­trick Wo­j­tyto, Stan Gin­ish and Richard Fac­tor. With them is El­lis V. Mayer, Boys’ Club swim­ming di­rec­tor.

1974 Tol­man was forced to play with­out 6-foot-7 scor­ing and

re­bound­ing leader Doug Clary but over­came that ma­jor hand­i­cap with hus­tle and mus­cle as the Tigers snapped a four-game los­ing skid with a 66-58 win over Cum­ber­land in a Metro Divi­sion II bat­tle. Tom Michal­czyk, hit­ting on long-range jump shots, paced Tol­man with 16 points, while Peter Rankowitz and Joe Dragon, who did yeo­man work in the re­bound­ing de­part­ment, were next with 15 and 11 points, re­spec­tively. Mike Muel­lar led the Clip­pers with 14 points, Al Er­vey had 13 and Rich Lengieza added 12.
