Girls Fighting for Basketball
(March 13, 1930, The Greenville Messenger)
Thirty-one girls teams were at Celeste Wednesday,
fighting for the honors in basketball.
The tournament this year has the prospect of being
the largest female basketball meet ever attempted in Texas. Of the
thirty-one entries eight are from far points in West Texas, including Rankin,
Cisco, Breckenridge, Throckmorton, Mingus, Dublin, Dalhart, and Cleveland.
With such a large field, fast competition is practically
assured after the first round.
Athens, Cisco, Celeste, and Seagoville were predicted
as likely to reach the semi-finals unless a dark horse should come through,
from a possible list including Frankell, Mesquite, Dublin, Breckenridge,
Dalhart, Mingus, Leesburg, Dimmitt, and Throckmorton.
One of the favorite teams for the meet is the Athens
High School sextet, winner of the North Texas and East Texas titles.
The first round competition schedule follows:
At Greenville: Breckenridge vs. Cleveland,
Seagoville vs. Selden; Throckmorton vs. Eliasville; Emory vs. Cooper; Dalhart
vs. Caddo Mills; Athens vs. Hickory Creek; Vickery vs. Cisco.
At Celeste: Sherman vs. South Bosque; Cross
Roads vs. Pike; Mesquite vs. Tehuacana; Frankell vs. Blue Ridge; Dublin
vs. Rankin; Mingus vs. Plano; Leesburg vs. Bailey; Celeste vs. Floyd.
