The Tigerettes are just not that far along. There are still things to be worked out and alot of polishing has to be done. But, the bright part of it is, the Tigeret- tea can be as good and go as far as they want. If the girls get serious, buckle down and work a little harder anything they want as far as success goes can be theirs. It's going to take a bit more dedication on their part also. Alot of time is going to have to be spent on the practice court and that means the girls are going to have to sacrifice and not find reasons to miss practice, but make sure they make them. In my opinion, the girls have a top notch coach in Kiser. And, if they'll work with him, they'll place many more games in the "W" column this season. But, it's up to them. Hopefully, they'll continue to get serious, work harder and find the going smooth. The Tigerettos, along with the Tigers, will compete in the Frankston In- vitaUonal beginning today (Thursday). It will be a tough test as 12 good teams make up the bracket. Teams such as LaPoynor, Brownsboro and Athens are among that number and are the three day affairs' favorites. Good luck girls ~ I !

The Athens Hornettes discovered as much Tuesday night on their home court when the Malakoff Tigerettes knocked them from the unbeaten ranks, 44-40, in a turnover-plagued pre-distrlct game. Athens entered the game with an unblemished 5-0 slate, and one of those notches had come at the expense of Malakoff, 61-,52, Just last week. But this Tigerette club seemed much different from the one which Athens disposed of with relative ease earlier in the season. For one thing, the Tlgerettes presented a multi- dimensional offense, rather than solely depending on getting the ball inside to post Marilyn Davis as they had in the first encounter. While Davis was instrumental in the Malakoff victory with a game-high 13 points and a crackerjack final quarter, she was by no means the lone con- trlbutor on the MI-IS squad. Jackie Coleman, for instance, fought like a wounded bear on the rebounding boards and bagged eight points of. fensively. Brenda Hoyt also chipped in eight points, and Jay Jay Mullahs did a highly creditable Job in relief, coming off the bench to hit for five points and pull down timely rebounds. Athens, ironlealy, never had what one would term a comfortable lead but did appear to be methodically, ff not sluggishly, moving toward its sixth win during the first three acts. Prissy Corley's gais owned leads of 7-,5, 20-19 and 30-28 at the close of those segments, but Malakoff came on strong in the final chapter behind Davis' eight markers. The game was knotted at 34-34 with 5:22 left, but MHS' Mandy Rogers gave her team the lead for good with a shot in the lane at the 4:34 Juncture. Corley's crew got as close as 40-39 after consecutive buckets by Dana Taylor and Sbawn Henderson, but Malakoff answered with field goals by Davis off a steal and Hoyt on the baseline, making it 44-39 with only 16 ticks on the timepiece. The Hornettes suffered through one of their chilliest nights of the season from the field, and that was a major factor behind the loss.
