S. Trafford Hicks, Jr. '38, of Arlington, Massachusetts, was elected captain of the hockey team for the 1937-38 season at a meeting of the lettermen yesterday. Hicks, who prepared at Belmont Hill School, stood out as a defenseman all year.
Hicks played on his Freshman team and won his letter last year. He also played Freshman football and won a minor "H" for Jayvee football in 1935. His election continues a family hockey tradition which his father, S. Trafford Hicks '10, began as captain of the 1910 team.
Scoring five goals and eight assists this season, he won a reputation for being an offensive as well as defensive force. His artful body-checking and rugged tactics were always effective.
