Gunnison News-Champion
The Gunnison boys and girls’ teams |
started off their interscholastic bas
!ketball season Saturday night with
& vietory apiece from the Eckert
{boys’ and girls' teams. The Eckert|
{teams arrived Saturday eveni
|ifter having played a ~series -i':fl
Montrose idsy night. The first!
my(}unmm was started at 7:00
| night, at which time the!
{boys’ teams took the floor for their |
first half. Their score at thé end of |
the half was 21-7 in favor of Gunni-|
| son. I
{ The girls then played their first
| half, ending 14-7 gl‘{lvor of Gunni
son. Alice Work, Gunnison's forward
| was high scorer of the game, making
eleven sints. |
‘ The boys’ second half demonstrated |

‘home team. ]
Many weaknesses in the Gunnison |
team were emphasized as only an inter- |
|school game can do, and these are in |
'a fairway to being recitified before
another game. The team is not yexi
*up to championship form but the g‘ms-
E:«.- are excellent of being in s npe'
| before the Montrose fl,me. I
| The girls’ second f was much;
tighter than the first and much more
interesting. The Eckert forwards|
kept a closer guard over the Gunni-|
son forwards, only lllowhig them to|
secure five more Yoints. kert scor
ed four in_this half. The game ended
19-11 in Gunnison’s favor.
