Burlington Tournament To Start Tomorrow Night
Both Boys and Girls
To Begin Play-Offs
The Chapel Hill High School
basketball teams, both boys’ and
girls’, will begin play in the Bur
lington Invitation Basketball
Tournament tomorrow night at
the Fairchild Recreation Center
in Burlington.
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. There are
