successful branch of competition at the College in terms of wins and losses.
The various teams from 1960-64 managed a combined 31-5 record. The
1964 team achieved a 9-1 record, led in scoring by its two outstanding
seniors Charles Markley and Gale Reish, both of whom were members of the
"D-Club" and co-captains of the team. The squad's one loss was to
the conference powerhouse Franklin and Marshal. All six members of
the team averaged in the low 70's.Coach Seibert achieved
a winning record that has placed him in the Dickinson Sports Hall of Fame.
The team was expected to compete for the number one spot in the M.A.C.'s,
but ended up coming in seventh, although all of the schools they lost to
were much larger universities. Out of the 23 teams in the M.A.C.'s,
Dickinson placed first among colleges. The four players chosen to
represent Dickinson in the M.A.C.'s were Markley, Reish, Rodgers and freshman
Steve Hopper, now a member of the Dickinson Hall of Fame.

High Street, posing with their drivers.
