South Hall exchanging riders.

This image appears on page 21 in the June, 1951 Alumni magazine. The caption reads, "A spill! The South Hall "Buccaneers" lose control of their bike as Russ Keller prepares to take over from Glenn Wilson. The Buccaneers took over the lead early in the race and never relinquished it, although in another spill, a pedal was bent and the drive chain broken costing the champs three of five minutes lead they had held over the field while repairs were made."
