Little is known of this team at this time.  This was Coach Linse's second team since the foundation of the Program. Allan Mattson and Dave Thompson were the top performers on this team this season. Dave Thompson went to a clinic at Iowa State and learned from the legendary Cyclone Coach Dr. Harold Nichols.
