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.
