After slow start, Kittens growl Seven returning veterans, including four starters, provided a strong foun- dation for the Wildkitten basketball team. Rebounding from three straight losses in the season% beginning, the Kittens had only three more losses in their last 19 games. Jan Laughlin and Peggy Johns, last year ' s captains and both seniors, pro- vided team leadership. Laughlin ended her final season as the Wildkitten ' s highest scorer, and raised her point average to 14.5. A minus for this team was the loss of four experienced reserves through graduation. A host of newcomers, among them Kristi Short and Ellen Sapp, were an advantage for the team in spite of their lack of college-level game experience. In their first season game against Wayland Baptist College, the Wildkit- tens fell 97 to 57. The Wayland Baptist Queens, returning three All-Ameri- cans, displayed a starting line-up that averaged 5 ' 10 " , opposing the Kittens ' 5 ' 7 " . Top Kitten scoring honors went to Janet Reusser who had 18 points, while Marsha Poppe ended the game with nine. Still looking for its first win of the season the Kittens fell 53 to 44 to Wil- liam Penn College in that college ' s Tip Off Tournament in Oscaloosa, IA, dur- ing Thanksgiving vacation. In their third place tournament bout, the Kit- tens lost to the highly regarded John F. Kennedy College in Wahoo, NB. Judy Akers. Wildkitten coach, said she believed K-State laced the tough- est opponents early in the season. However, the Kittens ended their long- est losing streak in history by claiming back-lo-back victories. Breezing by Midland Luther College of Freemont, NB. 81 to 30 in Ahearn Field House was the first of the victory pair. The next came the following eve- ning when the Kittens dumped North- west Missouri State 66 to 58, pushing the season record to 2-3. The K-Staters continued their tradi- tion of handling Wichita State with ease, bringing the conference record to an overall mark of 3-3. Wildkitten Susie Norton displayed a remarkable 72 percent from the floor in this chal- lenge. To bring the record to 4-3. the Wild- kittens out-scored Southwest Missouri State. 90 to 35. Poppe brought her record to a career high of 23 points. The first Wildkitten Classic was dominated by the host Kittens with convincing victories over Nebraska. 82 to 31, and a championship victory of 67 to 55 over highly-ranked Illinois State. The Kittens slipped by Fort Hays Slate the following Monday, 67 to 59. Norton led K-State ' s attack with 18 points. Reusser added 13 points al guard. Johns, the other guard, had 12 and Poppe added 10. The victorious Kittens then out- scored Kansas, 80 to 37, followed by a 76 to 69 victory over the Southwest Missouri Bearcats at Springfield, MO. K-State then suffered its first loss alter seven straight victories when it fell to Grandview with a close 55 to 57. Boosting their record to 12-5, the Wildkittens defeated Iowa State in a see-saw game in Ames, IA. Norton, who suffered an ankle injury and was not expected to see action, led the Kit- tens by scoring 15 points. In the ninth home game of the sea- son, the Kittens were defeated by Wil- liam Penn. The Wildkittens finished the season by beating John F. Kennedy in Manhattan, and Kansas at Lawrence. Jane Schroeder, assistant Wildkitten coach, said the JFK game was quality competition, adding that JFK plays controlled ball and seldom makes mis- takes. The Kittens culminated the season by taking first place in the State Tour- nament hosted by Kansas in Law- rence. Top loft: William Penn College puts impressive defense up against WIdkitten posses.
