BAY SPRINGS
VOCATIONAL HIGH
SCHOOL SPORTS
ROUND Up . . .
The Bay Springs Basketball
teams entered into the sec
ond half of their schedule by
playing Carter High School of
Brandon, Miss., on their own
court. The girls team looked
very good and it seemed the
rest over the holidays greatly
benefited the team. On the
other hand the boys started
rather slow and will have to
get a lot of ‘kinks’ ironed out.
The results of the game: Bay
Springs girls won and the boys
lost.
On January 8, the Brandon
game was returned. On this
trip, both the Tigers and Tig
erettes were upset. The girls
lost by a 23-20 margin and the
boys’ game was really a ‘hair
raising’ affair, with final scor
es being 23-27. In this game,
both Quitman Pickens and
James Moore fouled out in the
first half.
This week's schedule is
rather busy and is as follows:
Bay Springs vs South Side,
January 12 (there).
Bay Springs vs Collins, Jan
uary 13 (there).
Bay Springs vs South Side,
January 14 (here).
Bay Springs vs Soso, Janu
ary 15 (here).
Tournament at South Side,
January 15 (here).
It is hoped that the patrons
and many friends will con
tinue to support their home
teams as they have in the
past. We hope to bring you
some of the finest high school
basketball in this area. Watch
