4A--The MMakoff News, Thursday, Feb. 12, 1981 THE The current basketball season comes to a quiet and uneventful close for the Tigerettes tonight in Crockett The Tigerettes battle the Lady Bulldogs in the finale' following a 6 p.m. jayvee contest. It hardly seems possible that it has been almost a year to this very day the Tlgerettes defeated Canton in Tiger Gymnasium for their second con- secutive 13AAA championship, The Tigerettos advanced into hi-district ac- tion where they were denied another By Benny Rogers When the Tigerette boss called upon his bench for aid, Jay Jay Mullins, who moved when district play began, answered the call in fine fashion. After the departure of Mullins Ticknor was forced to play jayvee-calibre players. Brenda Hoyt and Michelle Kill/ngsworth were elevated to varsity status. Both players, who have come on strong as of late, filled in when the situation presented itself and did so in an adequate manner.

The Cardinals, currently in a four- way tie for second place with Lon Morris, K/lgore and Jacksonville, own 6-4 TEC marks. Only the top four league finishers make the conference tour- nament. The Apaches, ranked third in the nation, lead the Texas Eastern Con- ference with a 9-1 ledger. Coach Gary Ashlock's Lady Cards, who downed Tyler in an earlier meeting and snapped TJC's 40-game conference winning streak, meet the Apache Ladies in a battle for first place. Tyler, 21-3 overall and 9-1 in league play, trails the lady game. Henderson County season worksheet and are play.
