This year ' s product of the ORIOLE cage team had a slow start, but showed promise of a good team next year by ending up with an average record. They were endowed with only four lettermen: Captain Tommy Mabe, Doug Malone, Doug Farmer, and Bill Woods. Jack Duncan was also back. Next year, there will be ten returning lettermen. With a fairly green team, Jack Miller turned out a group of well-coached boys. These boys showed the fight, determination, and the sports- manship that we all should have. They showed that they could be good losers as well as good winners. Most of the ORIOLES ' losses were w! thin seven points and the outcome of the games were never decided until the final minutes ot play. 1951-1952 SCHEDULE We They January 4 Pearisburg 63 64 January 8 Wytheville . . . . 57 41 January 1 1 Blacksburg 54 52 January 18 Fries 58 68 January 19 Fieldale 49 52 January 25 Radford 46 69 January 26 Martinsville 55 61 January 29 Narrows ... 53 55 January 31 Blacksburg 40 43 February 1 Christiansburg 41 46 February 5 Fieldale 48 66 February 12 Narrows . . . . 51 53 February 15 Christiansburg . . . . . 53 52 February 19 Wytheville ...... 62 40 February 21 Radford 45 52 February 22 Pearisburg 74 54 February 26 Fries 55 61 sixty-two L

boys basketball Pulaski opened its 1952 basketball season with Pearisburg, which looked like a sure win. The Orioles led the entire game, but Pearisburg closed the gap and beat us by a close 64-63 margin. The Birdmen then encountered Wytheville on their home court. They showed some im- provement and won by a score of 57-41. Blacksburg came to Pulaski January I I look ing for our scalps, but the Orioles, who were im- proving all the time, turned the tables and de- feated the Indians 54-52. Pulaski ' s team looked as though it was go ing to mold into a fine ball club, but then it hap- pened. The Fries quintet handed them their second loss of the season, defeating them 68-58. The Orioles never regained their footing losing nine straight games to Fieldale, Radford, Mar tinsville, Narrows, Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Fieldale and Narrows. All of these games were lost in the final minutes of play by very close margins. The Orioles then traveled to Christians- burg looking for a win. They played a hard and continuous game and gave the strong Blue Demons a heartbreaking defeat. The score, 53- 52, sent the Pulaski team home with some much- needed encouragement. George Wythe High School of Wytheville came to town seeking revenge for its earlier de- feat. The game proved to be very interesting. Pulaski handed G. W. its fourteenth straight loss by the score of 62-40. Pulaski took to the road again, going to Radford this time. They played a ba ng-up ball game, but lost in the final minutes. The score was the same as usual, very close, 52-45. Pearisburg entered Pulaski expecting to re- peat themselves, but the Orioles, returning to strength, defeated them heavily by the wide margin of 74-54. The Orioles traveled to Fries looking for revenge of their earlier defeat. They played a good game but again came out on the short end of a 61-55 count, thus ending a hard-fought but not too successful season. girls basketbd The Pulaski High School girls were looking forward to a good season this year, having back six lettermen — Captain Betty Lovern, Jackie Richardson, Lila Sadler, Naomi Quesenberry, Janette Quesenberry, and Bonnie Hall. Other members of the Varsity were Jane Carson, Joyce Hughes, Jeanne Houston, Jo Ann Gar- rett, Louise Kitts, Beverly Pierce, Patty Hawkins, Joan Payne and Helen Burton. The Oriolettes won their second game from Blacksburg playing a close 24-21 decision. Working hard to keep their winning record, the girls beat Radford 38-31 after periods of play. Narrows trounced the Oriolettes 66-37 in a hard-fought game on the Narrows court. The Narrows girls were big favorites in the contest. Despite the valiant efforts of the Oriolettes, Narrows took the second game 55-38. The Pulaski girls received a heart-breaking loss when Christiansburg defeated them 39-37 after the Oriolettes had led all the way.
