-23, to gain first place in the South
Suburban Area Elementary Basket
ball Tournament held at Forest
Ridge, Illinois.
The game, watched by over 250
wildly cheering fans, including a
bout 100 from Robbins, was a
thriller, throughout.
The Lincoln boys began the scor
ing on a fast basket by Benny
Marshall, but the sharpshooting
boys from Hazelcrest quickly re
covered and at the end of the first
quarter Lincoln led by the narrow
margin of 7-6. The next quarter was
blazing hot with Lincoln leading
18-16. The third quarter was the
slowest period of the game, but it
ended with the score tied at 20-20.
In the final peiiod, however, the
boys from Lincoln began to forge
ahead. With William Shelby end
ing both backboards and William
Nesbit and Esdres Hayes stealing
the bail from Hazelcrest dribblers,
Lincoln scored 9 points to 3 for
Hazelcrest to come out on top by a
score of 29 to 23.
We are especially proud of ihis
victory since we know what hard
ships our boys had to overcome .in
order to succeed in a venture such
as this. They have never had a
gymnasium in which to practice
and for the majority of our players
this is the first year that they have
played basketball against outside
competition.
The boys who competed on this
