ferenee for several years.
A number of conferences de
veloped between Billings and
Holmes and Mayo and after con
sidering the change from many
angles Billings finally abandon
ed the idea of leaving Edenton
; for Goldsboro.
Billings has an enviable record
iin Edenton. He has been coach
for six years, coming here from
Wilmington in 1954. During
these six years his Edenton
teams have won six Albemarle
Conference championships. HiSj
teams won the state champion-'
ship three years, 1954, 1956
In 1955 the Aces won the dis
trict championship but lost in
the eastern regional playoff. In
1*1958 they lost in the eastern fi
-' nals and in 1959 they won the
r district championship but lost in
. the eastern regionals.
The record for the six years
Billings has been coach follows:
1954 Won 11, lot 2.
1955 Won 8, lost 3.
‘j 1956—W0n 12, lost 1.
' 1957—W0n 10, lost l, tied 1.
I 1958—Won 7, lost 4.
' 1959—W0n 7, lost 2, tied 2.
The overall record is 55 vic
tories, 13 losses and 3 tie games.
On paper Coach Billings
! should have another team of
championship calibre next sea
son, for only a few players were
lost by graduation, so that he
will have a well seasoned nu
cleus around which to build his
1960 football machine.
