THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
J. D. HYATT
Hello, Sport Fans ! The Blue Ridge Basketball tourna
ment held at Canton last week-end marked the end of the
While basketball has never been as popular as
some other sports have, I know that it's little band of
faithful followers were sorry to see the curtain fall on
such a good season.
Ooach Weatherby says that while the local teams did
not set any records they have had a very enjoyable season.
And tho he still wouldn't commit himself on the future of
basketball here in our town, this corner is afraid that next
year inter-scholastic basketball will have been cut in half
or abolished. For, as Coach Weatherby says, "The war is
the referee of all athletic events and their future."
This season basketball fans have seen the local boys'
team battle their way through 17 hardwood engage
ments. After doing a little arithemetic we find that they
have come out of the season 1 up. Having lost only 8
and won 9 of their engagements.
The local boys have hit the basket 474 times to their
opponents 404 and have made an average of 28 points a
game as their opposition got 23.8 a tilt. Considering the
tough teams the boys have been up against that is not bad
So far Coach Weatherby knows for sure that four
names will be crossed off the boys' roll call next year
due to graduation. The boys are Bruce Jaynes who plays
center, Clifton Bryson, Wallace Burnette, and Richard
Inman, guard. Ordinarily two regulars out of the line
up would hurt, but there seems to be some excellent
material coming up out of the lower grades.
The girls finished the season in better shape than the
boys, by winning 9, tieing 1 and losing 7 of their tilts. They
have made a total of 429 points to their opponents 366 points
Which all averages 25 points a game to the opposition's 21
points a game.
Although not going so far as to say how many he
is certain will be absent next roll call Coach gave the
following as seniors: Virginia McEIroy, Helen Trout,
Dorothy Milner, Elene Thompson.
The girls closed the season for the locals very appropri
ately, we think, by taking second place in the Blue Ridge
tournament and by having three of their number named to
the all-tourney teams.
First on the honor roll is Helen Trout, guard, who
was named to the all-tourney 1st team. McEIroy and
Sheehan were also put on the 2nd all-tourney team.
Honor roll for the boys include Oliver Yount, forward
who made the all-tourney 1st, and Stanley Henry who made
the 2nd team.
Our hats are off to Coach Poindexter and his swell
teams for successfully defending their championships.
This is the boys' third year and the girls' second as Blue
Another team that made the grade was the Swannanoa
boys who captured second place in the boys' division of the
All of this means, sport fans, that however sad the
parting we must ring down the curtain until next season!
So long . . . . '
