Malakoff THE The local Little Dribbler program continued to make headlines on the national scene in the 1981 national tour- nament in Levelland last week. The II- 12 boys captured the national crown, while the 9-10 knotted a third place finish. The success garnered by the two local representatives at the national meet marks the most successful year the local league has experienced. Before this year's high finishes the last two seasons, a national title in 1979 and a fourth place in 1980, were the brightest moments. Regardless of what the future holds for the 24 special youngsters that represented Malakoff, the five days spent out west last week may be the most significant of their lives. Forget the fact they were successful in their ef- forts, because these youngsters gained more than winning a few games.

While in the days to come, most of the attention will be given to the two time national champion 11-12 year olds, let's not forget the accomplishments of the 9- 10 All Stars, The junior divisioners weren't given much of a chance to sur- vive to regional tourney let alone place third in the nation. Of course the youngsters are disap- pointed they didn't win all the marbles and it will probably be awhile before they realize the third place finish is a remarkable achievement. Eleven of the 12 team members move into the major division next year, so this year's third could very well be the next two season's national titles. Members of the odds defying 9-10 team are Frank Pattison, Bart Beasley, Chris Ivey, Steven Gregory, Guy Monroe, Eric Clendenning, Eric Trim- ble, Brad Taylor, Mark Trice, Marcus Hornbuckle, Marcus Dowell and Rod- ney Slaton. John Beasley and Chip Souza coached the group. The road to another crown for the 11- 12 leaguers was by no means a smooth one. Twice during the tourney, the All Stars had to overcome sizeable deficits. The national champs also were forced to hold off late rallies by the opposition on two occasions. Eight of this year's national champs were on the '79 squad that ,won it all, Playing on both titlist teams were Greg Ashlock, Mike Hoyt, Grady Baker, Billy Hughes, Paul Loper, Sean Stenovitch, Donnie Hedge and Mike Lowry, while Andy Thomas, Clyde On By Benny Rogers Dowell, Sean McKean, and Willie Smith of happiness steadily flowed from each as to the final outcomes. garnered their first titles this year.
