SEASON REVIEWED The 1950 football season at Ahoskie High School was a success -in fact, from the standpoint of the coaches it was one of the best, mainly because more men learned more football this season than in the past three years. The won and lost record was not very impressive to the fans nor does it correspond to the record of the past three seasons, but when the Indians ' schedule is looked over and the revenge motive of our opponents brought to mind, we find that the Ahoskie team would have had to be a two touch¬ down favorite to have won the games they lost. Boys came out for football in mid-August and finished the season as men. This was not accom¬ plished in a day but in many days of hard work. The light and fast Indians fought hard and satisfied the coaches in every game except the last two. The high spirited but experienced team was in many cases better than it was expected to be at the first of the season. The Indians scored 109 points as compared to 176 of their opponents. 105 were scored against Ahoskie in the last two tilts. Indians scoring during the season were Albert Terry, Pat Jordan and William Leary with 18 points each; Albert Vaughan and Charlie Sessoms with 12 points each; Buster Joyner with 9 and Dickie New- some with 6. Twenty nine members of the 1950 squad received letters and of these only seven are Seniors, leaving 22 lettermen for next year ' s squad.

The following week the Indians played host to the Spring Hope Raiders and won their second game of the season by 19-7 score. . . , , , , , On September 29, the Indians found the road to victory a little eas.er to travel and they handed the Scotland Neck team, and Albemarle conference team, a 26-0 defeat on the Ahosk.e fie.d. ’at, don ' t you and Charlie }0 to sleep now. It ain’t he time for it. Columbia) I Get Kim, boys I (Williomston) The next week the Indians won their second conference gome by scalping Hert¬ ford 16-0 in a hard fought battle on the home field. After a week ' s rest due to the cancellation of a game with Cathedral Latin, the fighting Indians had their first taste of defeat at the hands of a heavy Plymouth eleven. This was an Albemarle Conference game ployed inAhoskie . Next week, on October 27, the Indians climbed back into the winner ' s circle by taming the Wildcats of Columbia, an Albemarle opponent, 19-6 in an ofternoon tilt in Columbia. Snap out of it, boys. There ' sagame going on. (Williamston) Who has the ball? (Columbia) In the last home game of the season the Indians fell before Ayden, 16-2 as they played one of their best defensive games of the year. In their last conference game the high-spirited team traveled to Williamston on Nov¬ ember 10 and tasted defeat at the hand of the Green Wave, 12-6. Then the Indians who had lived football for the past several months, and " were over¬ trained and stal led " dropped the final two games to the Class AA teams of Elizabeth City and Edenton, 51-0 and 54-0 respectively. Say, there ' s an extra leg i there! (Wi I liamston) The Ahoskie Indians are looking forward to next year with a squad of 30 letter- men returning. The Indians have high hopes of providing some very interesting Fri¬ day nights for the students of Ahoskie High and the fans of Ahoskie. I -i Do you think they ' ll get him? (Ayden) Hey, grab that ball! mm, s fiasketball T earn First Row, left to right: Jean Clark, Shirley Ward, Anne Hill, Anne Burch, Annie Laura Brown.

SEASON REVIEWED A large group of Ahoskie Maidens turned out for basketball practice in December 1950. After a long waitof six years, a new gym awaited them. They also had two new coaches, Julian Freeman and Jack Young. Freeman coached the forwards while Young took over the guards. Three games were played before the holidays and the Maidens were on the low end of the score each time. The second game after the holidays spelled victory as the girls beat Columbia 44-43. The girls fought hard but victory didn ' t come again until they scalped Gatesville 33-18. Soon after they tied Lewiston 26-26. They gained revenge by defeating Scotland Neck 37-24 and Bethel 49-45. In the conference tournament held at Hertford , the girls came out on the lower end of a fast moving, hard fought game,(28-27). Losses were to Woodland 57-32 (home), Sunbury 35-27 (home), Woodland 58-31, Murfreesboro 54- 33 (home), Lewiston 42-32, (home), Perquimans 35-28, (home), Murfreesboro 56-37, Bethel 38-31, (home), Scotland Neck 51-41, Perquimans 35-23, Williamston 37-35, Williamston 30-23 (home). The wins were few, but the maidens put up a hard fight the entire season and deserved to win more games than they did. Only two Seniors were on this year ' s team, so next year should prove a winning one for the Ahoskie Maidens. Good Luck!

Places On The Warpath So many players were lost to graduation in 1950 that the boys team practically had to " start from the bottom ' ' this season. The boys started off with a bang and walked over their first three opponents, Wood¬ land 46-29, (home), Sunbury 49-29 (home). Woodland 58-39. In the Ahoskie Hoiiday Tournament the boys defeated Roxobel-KeIford 37-34, and Colerain 48-45, be¬ fore bowing in the finals to Gatesville 41-40. The boys really had a wininng streak after the holidays, defeating Murfreesboro 52-28 (home), Colum¬ bia 38-20 (home), Lewiston 47-28 (home), Perquimans 48-44, (home), Murfreesboro 53-46. Then they fe11 to a strong Bethel quintet 64-36 (home). They bowed to Scotland Neck 47-44, Hertford 31-30, Gates¬ ville 55-36 (home), Wi 11 iamston 44-34. Then the Indians traveled to Lewiston and came away with a 54- 42 victory. Scotland Neck visited the home court and took a 33-29 decision. At Bethel the Indians were completely overwhelmed 74-39. After that Wi I liamston won a hard fought batt,-e 39-33 on the home court. The District 1 State Playoffs were held in the Ahoskie Gymnasium in February, 1951 and the Indians were seeded with Manteo which defeated them 40-37. In the Albemarle Conference Tournament at Hertford the boys got revenge as they defeated the Scot¬ land Neck team 33-29 before going down to the strong Green Wave of Williamston in the semi-finals 37- 31 in a hard played tilt.
