S. team, scoring 16 of the 23 points.
Greensboro High School was elimi
nated from the race for the state cham
pionship title when they were defeated
by the Leaksville High by a 40 to 22
score on February 25 at IVinstoii.
The Leaksville qiiint unleashed a
passing attack that is seldom found in
high school circles, and it was impos
sible for the Greensboro boys to solve
the attack. With Hamerick and Ed
wards as the two outstanding stars and
long shots and dribbles, the Greensboro
Highs were left at the sniidl end of a
very one-sided score. Taylor handled
the ball well for G. H. S.

fought contest and several times it
looked as if the Maroon Devils were
going to step into the lead and carry
home the banner of champions. Both
teams played a great brand of basket
