LADY BULLDOGS IN BASKETBALL This year, the members of the TWC Women ' s Basketball Team are to be congratulated for a job well done. When the pressure was on, they always managed to play superbly. The team, as well as everyone else, was deeply sadened by the tragic loss of 3 of it ' s members. They were Andrea Higdon (above left), Cathey Delaney (above), and Bev Beasley (left). We will always remember them, but perhaps we should remember even more the strength, courage, and love shown by the remaining members of the team.
