Coach Lloyd’s girls will find their work cut out for them when they face a strong Gibsonville girls’ team in the opener at 7. According to latest reports, heavy drills have been conducted during the past week and the Hillian girls should be in top condition for the contest. In the boys’ division, Coach Bud Stanbach’s cagers shouldn’t have much trouble disposing of the Burlington “B” team. Al though it is not known actually how Burlington will divide its two teams, it is thought that most of the better players will remain with the “A” string. The Wildcat “B” team split two games with the Burlington “B” team during the regular season. Should either or both of the Chapel Hill teams win their first contests, they will automatically advance to the finals by virtue of a semi-final bye.
