Almost from the start key players in the Eagle Lineup became seriously handicapped with injuries. Whe n school opened September 1 the squad had participated in five scrimmages. The Decatur boys were unable to get started in the regular season and dropped the opener to Dublin in a penalty-and-fumble ridden contest. Perhaps the porrest showing of the year came against Handley in the conference opener. The powerful Birdville Buffaloes had too much for us the following week as the Eagles went down again. After holding a 13-Z margin over our arch rivals from Bowie, the Eagles gave up two fourth quarter touchdowns to lo s e a h e ar t- breaker. The Decatur de fe n s i ve forward wall kept the Diamond Hill ground attack bottled up throughout most of the contest, but the Fort Worth boys notched two counters to gaina victory. Playing on our home field against Boyd. we won our first victory of the year. Spirits ran high the succeeding Friday night as we spotted Jacksboro six points in the opening period, but we evened the count at halftime and c ame on to win. The Eagles had caught fire by now. Although the Henrietta Bearcats came down as two touchdown favorites, they went back on the short end of the s c o r e. The Eagles had not beaten Nocona since 1931 and were determined to b 1' eak the jinx. Outplaying the favorites in every department, the Eagles surged from one end of the field to the othe r as they won the game. Nine senior boys wore the blue and white for the last time in dropping the final test of the schedule to Newcastle.

The Eag1ebitties,however, worked hard and molded a fine squad that ripped through an ll game schedule wi th an impressive 6 - 3 - 1 r ecor d. The junior boys ended the 1950 race in clear possession of second place,trailing only the B ir d ville team, at whose hands came two of the three losses. The third setback was suffered at Jacksboro, The future Eagles posted two victories each over Newcastle and Alvord, and took single games from Jacksboro and Bridgeport. The Bridgeport juniors battled theEagle- bitties to a deadlock here at Decatur. This was con s ide r ed to have been a very good season indeed, and everyone is proud of Mr. Hodges and his boys. Bert Caraway Dwayne Hill Joe Lambert The boy's basketball team, forced to r ebuild after the loss of key players from last year's squad, got off to a slow start but showed marked improve- ment to w a r d the e n d of the season. After advancing to the consolation finals of the D.B.C. tourney, the Eagles picked up s te am and finished with a 4-Z re- cord in conference play. The two set- backs came at the hand s ofBirdvi11e, lower half win n e r s. Coach Young' s quintet, though plagued by injuries Q a n d weakened by the lo s s of Wade Stonel, came back after suffering severalearly defeats to bounce Diamond Hill and Handley two times a pie c e. Under the circurnstances, the boys had a fine sea- son, and a r e looking forward to a suc- cessful campaign next year.

Mr. Vick's girls had captured the district c r own for the past two seasons,and came on to win again this year, nudging Henrietta in the deciding game by one point, The girls dropped the fir s t contest of the regional playoffs with Mesquite, but came back to take the next two by decisive margins. They drew Commanche, eventual class A titlists, in the opening round at Austin, but put up a fine battle before losing. The season ended with our girls holding a Z1-5 record, losing only to Plano ftwicel, Henrietta, Mesquite, and Commanche. We're proud of Mr. Vick and his girls, and hope that they may do as well again next year. -1 s 'I' 1 's I dxsin- 545 5 .fr I X Y r ' - I I I f , ' x r f 1 - 1 ' . .
