Golden gloves 1980

March 22nd, 1980 — Danny Thompson of Maple Ridge is knocked on the ropes by Andy Minsker of Oregon during a golden gloves bout at Exhibition Gardens in Vancouver. Minsker won the bout and the title in the senior class. Another set of pictures long in my archives without names until Newspaper.com digitized every issue of the Vancouver Province and made them available online. More boxing pictures HERE.

Named at last

May 31st, 1975 — John Pankratz (268), above, celebrates winning the senior boys 100 meters at the Provincial high school track and field championships at Swangard Stadium. This picture and those below have been sitting in my archives for years waiting for names which I finally obtained thanks to Newspapers.com which recently digitized every copy of the Vancouver Province and Vancouver Sun.

Brit Lind-Peterson (207), above, won the senior girls 1500 meters.
