Oakland High had the Garrett County Championship Baseball team in 1929. We are extremely proud of this team. Don Colaw was the captain and iron man of the team. It was his stellar pitching and heavy batting that was a big help in putting Oakland on top. Due to a lack of support by the rest of the team, we lost to Hagerstown Hi in the State tournament, when Colaw struck out TWENTY-THREE Hagerstown men. With the same team this year we expect better results. In the words of the Hagerstown coach to the Oakland coach: "If you only had better support with that pitcher our team would certainly have looked sick."—And Hagerstown won the State Championship that year!

Oakland High Boys' Basketball was not so successful due to the lack of a playing floor and not due to the lack of ability of the players.

"Bud” Stemple played his last year in Oakland’s fast and snappy little forward. Little in size but not in ability.

"Babe" Maroney is another very fast forward and a good running mate for Stemple. More is expected of him in the next three years.

"Rich" Glotfelty as sub-forward was always "in there" and full of fight. Probably regular forward next year.

"Dutch" Butler as standing guard was ever aggressive. "Don't let 'em score" is his motto.

"Joe" Sollars as center was unbeatable. Always getting the tip-off and fighting hard every minute was Joe.

"Joe" Rice as sub-center and guard always could be relied upon in a tight place. Certainly a regular varsity man next year.

"Carrol" Forman (not in picture) sub-guard and forward was very fast and a dead shot at long range.

We defeated Friendsville Hi in two games 38-13 and 38-10 and Friendsville finally won the County Championship. We did not enter the tourney because we had no place for the games at home. Better luck next time.
