Revenge was gained again when ihe Orioles won over the big Narrows team by a score of 28 to 27 in a game that was packed with thrills to the finish. Leading 17 to 13 at the halt the Narrows “Green Wave” was outscored in the third quarter and Pulaski went into the lead. Although almost caught in the last quarter, the Coiner-men held the meager margin stubbornly and at length wound up on the long end of the count. Having an open date in the schedule the next Tuesday, the Pulaski boys played a practice game with the Boys’ Club. The game not meaning much, the coach had a chance to use his reserves and to see how they could stand up under fire. BOYS’ BASKETBALL VARSITY— First Row DONNIE RICHARDSON, HEZ MALONE, VON MOODY, BILL ALLEY. LOUIS PAINTER, KENNETH FARMER, BOW HaISLIP, CLYDE SHINAULT, KING HARRISON. Back Row -ROBERT MOORE, Manager; JOHN S. COINER, Coach; GEORGE CARRAS, Assistant Manager.

BASKETBALL CAPTAINS AND COACHES Back Row -MISSES JEAN BUNDY and BETTY HARDY, girls’ coaches; JOHN DAVIDSON and JOHN COINER, boys’ coaches. Front Row — LOLTIS PAINTER, captain of the boys’ varsity team; DOTTIE LEACHE, girls’ varsity captain; and BUDDY KEGLEY, captain of the junior varsity five. W ith Coach Coiner shifting the lineup considerably, the Orioles were “ready” for their arch rivals from across the river, the Radford Bobcats! The Orioles came through in splendid style, “Popeye” Farmer leading his team mates by scoring 13 points as they went on to register the first win of the season. When the final whistle sounded the score stood 23 to 9. The next game was a heart-breaker, Narrows eking out a 21 to 18 victory over our boys in a thrill-a-minute game. The two teams were evenly matched, the score being- close all the wav. Pulaski pulled up to with- in 3 points of Narrows’ lead, only to be halted abruptly by the referee’s whistle ending the game and their growing threat. The following week found the Orioles playing host to the Marion squad. After gaining a 5-point lead in the first quarter, the Maroons were never overcome, and came through to win, 21 to 15. Sweet revenge was gained later on in the season, however, when the Orange and Black team trounced the Marion quint 40 to 24. With Farmer, Shinault, Moody and Malone all sinking shots, the Orioles were never threatened, and their lead so decisive that Mr. Coiner had a chance to use some of his subs. Journeying across the mountain for the next game the Pulaski boys tasted defeat again at the hands of the strong Draper Blue Devils. Farmer and Captain Painter tried to keep their team in the running, but they came out on the short end of a 28 to 23 score. Henry Duncan’s long shots in the latter stage of the game were the deciding factor of the contest. Christiansburg again outscored our boys in their next game, winning 30 to 22. The little orange-clad team, nevertheless came back in full force to trounce a thoroughly outplayed team from Jackson Memorial to a tune of 29 to 7. Captain Painter and “Popeye” Farmer, both forwards, again led the scoring, garnering 8 points apiece.

JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM First Row— BILLY CARPER. RALPH NEESE, HENSEL HAWKINS, CHARLES PAULEY. BILLY GROSECLOSE, ROBERT DICKERSON, FRANKLIN NEWSOME, CHARLES WATTS, N. D. ARTRIP, CHARLES KEGLEY, DOUGLAS AUST. Back Row - HAROLD TESTER. GEORGE CARRaS, Coach DAVIDSON, DONALD GREENAMYER. JACK CALDWELL. Getting back on the regular schedule our boys again trounced Radford in fine style. The game featured the pass work of the Orioles and the eagle-eye shooting of Louis Painter. Scoring 15 points, “Popeye” Farmer led the way for the Orange and Black team in a close win over the Draper Blue Devils to make amends for a defeat handed them by the Draper team in a previous encounter. The score was 28 to 23, the same score by which the Orioles were defeated in the first clash with the valley five. The William Byrd aggregation from Vinton won over our team in the next game. The tali boys from the Magic City were too much for our quint and play culminated with the counting set at 40 to 25. Another Roanoke team, William Fleming, took the following game from the “songsters”, but not without a stiff battle. Painter was high scorer for the Orioles, count- ering 0 points. The Orioles got down to business and took a 30 to 12 victory away from Blacksburg the next Tuesday. W ' ith three games left to be played, as we go to press, the Pulaski high team hopes to boost their standing, by winning all three, to make it a fifty per cent average for the season. Diminutive Kenneth “Popeye” Farmer was the high scorer of the season, registering 135 points, and was followed by Captain Louis Painter with 88 points. This pair of forwards really know their way around on the hardwood, and are the envy of all tall men! Their lack of height makes it necessary for them to be“dead shots, ’’and they are just that. The whole team made a creditable show- ing, and although Captain Painter will be missed in ’41 -’42, such court artists as Farmer, Shinault, Haislip Malone, Moody, and an array of stars from the Junior Varsity, should furnish plenty of competition for the teams in ou r district.
