Freddie Crawford, All-Ameri-can

With only four days ol practice
under their belts, the Waynesville
high school boys' basketball team
succumbed to a scrappy Crablree
quintet 23-16 in the season's open
er last Friday. The Mountaineer
girls' team scored an impressive
verdict over the Crabtree lassies
Coach Carl Hatcliffc's team, which
opened practice last Monday after
noon, were ahead during the first
half of the contest, until the Crab
tree sharpshooters set the nets on
fire during the final stanza. The
Mountaineers, missing the hoop
with regularity, failed to tally a
point in the second quarter. The
girls team snowed great promise
as a trio of tall forwards poured
in goals over the waving hands of
green and yellow players The
Mountaineer guards weaved a tight
defensive net and halted the swift
Few people noted the double de
feat suffered by Bethel last week
at the hands of Fines Creek with
too much significance. It was the
first twin reversal handed to the
Bethel cagers during the past two
decades. The losses suffered by
the Bethel girls' team in the past
15 years can be counted on one
hand. Loss of many first string
performers are handicapping the
Bethel clubs this season

The Waynesville High Moun
taineers opened their 1948-4") cage
season Friday night by splitting a
doubleheader with the Crablree
cagers on Ihe Crabtree floor. The
Waynesville girls rolled over the
Crabtree lassies with ease 27 to
18. but as expected the Crablree
boys handed the Mountaineers a
23 to 16 licking.
The Mountaineer lassies jumped
inlo the lead and maintained it
throughout the game. The Crah-
Ireet girls narrowed the score late
in Ihe game with the Mountaineer j
reserves in the game.

As expected, Ihe Mountaineers'
shooting eyes were off, due lo Ihe
lack of practice and they missed

passing of both teams was very
good but Ihe accuracy of Ihe Crab
tree sharpshooters was the payoff.
The game was a ragged affair
and plenty of improvement tan be
made in every respect, and when

season, IIX' outcome is expected to
