HERE was much enthusiasm from a large number of boys over Junior Varsity Basketball this year. Despite transportation shortages, the team was able to play several games, which gave them much needed experience and showed that they had the spirit and ability, characteristic of Pulaski High School players. Although their victories were few, the boys played with excellent sportsmanship throughout the season. We feel sure that this experience and training will be invaluable to them as they take their places on the Varsity Squad next year. PACE FIFTY-FIVE

X HILE the 1943-44 football team had only a fair record, winning 2, losing 4, and tying I, the ” ’ boys, however, are to be commended for their constant display of good sportsmanship. The boys began practice as usual the first of September. With only four lettermen back, the boys ' future looked dark. Then Coach Raymond Cure loomed over the horizon and with his patience and expert coaching, and determination on the part of the boys, a very formidable team was organized. The boys were hit hard during the season when Uncle Sam needed Co-Captains Bill Miller and Jake Matheney for his teams. Much excitement and rivalry was renewed with our games with Wytheville. This year two games were played and the scores were totaled determining the victor and winner of the victory cup. Pulaski beat Wytheville by a close 7-6 the first game and when we journeyed to Wytheville, the game ended in a 7-7 tie, thus giving the victory cup to Pulaski. If the boys in the future have the determination, courage and good sportsmanship of the boys of this year ' s team, our future teams will have the makings of a successful team. Oct. 1 Pulaski . .

Coach Raymond Cure rapidly shaped his charges into a smooth working combination. Captained by Alex Haller, only returning letterman, the Orioles played their first game January 7, against an independent fast alumni five. Handicapped by lack of experience, the Orioles nevertheless showed an aggressive spirit and the best of good sportsmanship which soon led to their entrance into the win column. Coach Cure had many excellent reserves besides his starting line-up and frequently sub- stituted them into the games. Finally getting the winning spark, the Orioles won their last seven games ending the com petitive season with ten wins and four losses. On the basis of this outstanding record the Orioles received an invitation to the Class B Tournament in Radford the 3rd and 4th of March. Again this year we are proud of our Basketball Team and of the clean, sporting way in which they played. May they always represent our school so well!
