Wi VARSITY BASKETBALL Milligan is always proud of her basketball team, and this year was certainly no exception. Two members of the 1957- ' 58 squad were chosen for the All-Conference teams in both the Smoky Moun- tain Athletic Conference and the Volunteer State Athletic Con- ference. Co-Captains Del Harris and Sonny Smith received these honors. Both were also selected for the SMAC All-Tourney team, and Smith also made VSAC All-Tournament. 89 WE BEAT STATE! The basketball story for the 1957- ' 58 season was headlined by two victories over arch-rival East Tennessee State College. E.T.S.C. teams had won the last 19 en- counters between the two schools. But Milligan came out on top 55-51 in the December 2 thriller on the State court, and proved it was no accidental victory by win- ning again in our home gym 80-76 on January 19. Excitement ran high and school spirit was at its peak. o Chuck Aitken Roger Sizemore itS V V H X ! Carroll Buck Bob Burton Co-Captain Del Harri: All-Conference Charles Tester ?
