I 9 2 9 Basketball Season
THE Basketball Team of Oak Cliff High School ended
the city series on February 27 by defeating her weaker
rival, Dallas Tech, with the score of 33 to 6.
The Leopard Basketeers began the season in an ideal
way, defeating first North Dallas, then Wfoodrow Wilsoii,
and Dallas Tech, but, just at this stage of the race, Sunset
came along with three all-city veterans and started us on that
long losing streak that wasnlt curbed any by mid-term.
From that first defeat until six more games had been
lost, Oak Cliff just couldnlt seem to shake off the jinx that
hung over her. Finally, the traditional fight of Oak Cliff
came through with a victory over North Dallas and followed
this up by defeating Dallas Tech, thus ending the season of
1928-329 in fourth place.
This yearls team was composed of Carl Crofford, cap-
tain, Lewis Kelsey, Bill Erickson, Nat VVest, Gillon Cole,
Ed VVright and Julius Truelson.
