6A--The Malaioff Newl, Thursday, March Z4, :ii il il; :?l ! By CIC Staff although Lorri Cope, Tonya Street and Mandy Rogers were al in the running for Half way through the 1982-83 basketball season it looked llke picking a All- girls' sophomore of the year. Henderson County Area team would be near impossl, ble. BOYS' TEAM As the season wore on however the top talent became apparent. The area Cross Raods' Danny Hughes was an almost unamious choice as Most Valuable coaches were asked to nominate those players they felt deserving and there was Player. The 5-10 junior, last year's Sophomore of the Year, averaged 23 points, I0 much agreement, especially on the boys' team. Each first-stringer was rebounds and five assists per game, going inside against bigger and taller nominated by three different area coaches so it was fairly easy to make those players as well as playing an effective outside game. selections. Joining Hughes on the first team were: Brownsboro's Chirs Farmer, Making the selections for the girls' team was a lot more difficult, most of all MalakoWs Jerryl Jackson, La Poynor's Kerry Pattie and Randy Meador and separating the first from the second teams. Trinidad's Charles Coleman. The superlative selections were made easy by the players themselves. Those Pettie, a 6-2 jumping jack, recieved the Sophomore of the Year award while that were picked were for the most part the dominating players in their category, Brownsboro's Greg Sheffield, a 6-4 sophomore who averaged 12 points and 12 Malakoff team competes at state tourney Malakoff's 12 and under YMCA team competed in the state tournament in Waco over the weekend, posting one PRESS ASSOCIATION 1982 Judged No. 1 in Texas among weekly newspapers win against two losses. The Tigers, coached by John Beasley and Curtis Ivey, earned the right to compete in the state meet by breezing through local YMCA play with a perfect 7-0 record. The team also won the local poet season tournament. After opening with a loss to Oak Cliff, the Tigers rebounded with a resounding 62-7 win over Galveston. The Tigers were eliminated by the Athens Celtics, a team they had defeated twice earlier this year. "We just got out played," Beasley said afterwards. "We had a total lack of concentration and got beat badly on the boards." "It was a good experience for us even though we lost. The competition among for the good teams was fierce. That will help us in the Little Dribbler tour- naments," he concluded. Team members include Steve Gregory, Bert Beasley, Rodney Slaton, Marcus Hornbuckle, Guy Monroe, Chris Ivey, Eric Clendenning and Frank Pattison. THE On Sports By Benny Rogers This 'n that Saying goodbye to March and hello to April with this 'n that... When last we left the Malakoff High School baseball team it was basking in the sunlight fresh off a 4-2 upset win over Canton in the season opener. Since then the skies have clouded and the temperature has cooled. The Tigers have fallen to a 2- 7 worksheet after three weeks of play. Why the change of fortunes for Coach Robert Duron and his diamondmen? It's simply a case of inexperience. Aside from Warren Alexander, Mike Riddle and Tim Mattingly, Duron fields a starting line-up that has very little varsity ex- perience to its credit. What experience those players do have was in the Little League ranks a few years back. The lack of experience was never more evident than in the opening round of the Frankston tournament last weekend. Playing against Spring Hill, the Tigers blew two leads, the latest in the final inning with two outs. Both times the Tigers made mistakes that stem from the experience factor. Last year's team wouldn't have made ~:grrors and next year's won't. ~ * The best thilli[ i~t a youngi -tn~ence@ tc~m~tW.:t~e following years. ..... What's goingt$~pen is one day it's all going to click and the skies will once again clear. But for now, there may be some cloudy days. Hang in there Tigers... FROM THE GYM A full slate of games is on tap Saturday as the 1983 Little Dribbler season draws to a close. Still ahead are the regional and national tournaments for both the girls and boys' divisions. A special awards ceremony is also slated for Saturday at 3:30p.m. All players and coaches will be presented a participation certificate. The highlight of the awards ceremony will be the naming of the recipients of girls' MVP Award and the boys' "Shane Monroe" MVP Award. Make plans to be at the gym at 3:30 and be a part of the final Saturday. The 1983 All Star teams will be chosen over the weekend and the players will be notified of their selection. The boys' regional meet will be in Fairfield April 7-9. Hold on to your hat, but the national meet will be in Brownsboro April 20-23. More on that later, I promise. The girls' tourneys will be held in early May. Be reminded that there are two games on tap prior to Saturday.

MHS TRACK REPORT Junior Gary Woolverton, regional qualifier a year ago, continues to pace the MHS track scene. Woolverton captured~a first place finish in the 300 intermediate hurdles this past weekend in Teague with a time of 40.72, which was just off the meet record of 40.70. Woolverton also has a first place effort in the high hurdles in Hillsboro two weeks ago to his credit. The top Tiger trackster finished third in the 30Ointer- mediates in the same meet. The Tigers' sprint relay team of Daniel Blair, Billy Till, Kevin Kilman and Woolverton placed sixth in the Hillsboro meet.
