OTHER GAMES The Eagles played several other games in their successful season, before the start of the District race. The first of these was with Lawn, in which the Eagle regulars remained in the game only the first thirteen and one-half minutes, leaving it to their aides after that, who downed the Lawn quintet by a score of 27-9. A few days later the Eagles' aides took the game over after the first five minutes and showed their ability by leaving the score 46-14 at the end of the game. The next tilt was with Ovalo in the semi-finals of the Abilene Chris- tian College Tournament. The Eagles swept by the Ovalo quintet with little difficulty, to go on into the finals, with Hailey taking high point honors. The Eagles won the tournament by completely overwhelming Hamlin, a previously undefeated team. This started as a close game but ended in the utter rout of the tall Hamlin Pied Pipers. Dennis was the defensive hero for the Eagles, while Hailey took high scoring honors with fifteen points. One of the outstanding games of the season was the defeat of Crews-the first defeat for this quintet after they had won thirty-two consecutive games. Every Eagle played his best in this game, Fox probably playing the best game of the season. Next in line for the rampaging Eagles was Cross Plains, another outstanding team in West Texas. This game was close all the way and was won in the last few seconds by the Eagles with a one-point margin. This again proved Eagle su- premacy over West Texas teams. The Eagles opened their home stand with a convincing vic- tory over a strong Tuscola five. Hailey captured high scoring honors, with Reese, second highest scorer of the entire season, only two points behind. In the next game, the Tuscola basketeers somewhat avenged the loss in the preceding game by a win over Miller's cagers by a score of 14-13 in an extra five-minute period which resulted from a 12-12 tie at the end of the game. Toward the end of the pre-conference season the Eagles snatched a one-point decision from the Tuscola cagers. This proved to be one of the most exciting games of the year. Hill and Fox were high-point Warbirds in this game of thrills. This was the last game the Eagles played with another high school in West Texas before going into the final conference race. CONFERENCE GAMES JAYTON AND TUSCOLA In the first game of the regular district race, Coach Miller's Eagles had little difficulty in defeating the small school, Jayton, by the score of 32-8. Hailey was high point man in this game, as was frequent during last season. The Eagles then prepared to go on to the Tuscola game to battle a squad with which Abilene High School had stood on fairly equal terms all of the past season. The Tuscola game climaxed a very successful season for the Warbird basketeers and also a series of Tuscola games that read like a novel. The Eagles lost 20-24 in this last Tuscola game to go into the finals of the District race, The near equality of Abilene and Tuscola during the entire season is proof enough of the strength of the Eagle cagers of Abilene High School last season, HOW ARD L. MILLER Coach Miller has done some fine coaching this year with the Warbird cagers. He made basketball more popular than it has ever been and turned out the best squad of basketball men Abilene High School has ever produced. His hopes lie principally in the future, however, and he believes that next year his cagers will go places unprece- dented in Eagle basketball history. As a man, he is popular with all the men on the squad. He never has to drive them into practice, and it may be that their Willingness to work hard and faithfully under him is the thing that made the squad go as far as it did last year. Certainly the inspiration afforded by such a man is no small factor in turning out victorious Warbirds. . i K . CoAcH MILLER Page 100
