10A--The Malakoff News, Thursday, Dec. 10, 1981 By BOB RUNYON TRINIDAD -- It's an old story. The big basketball team from the city goes down to the little-blty school somewhere in the sticks and the little team plays like the Celtics, thus mashing the visitors and sending them home with tails tucked between legs. It's no new thing that teams like Snook, LaPoynor, West Lamar and Trenton take on the best of the rest every season and come out on top. And the old excuse is that "well, they get to workout all year long." There is a large faction that feel that schools that do not play any other sport do have a distinct advantage on the schools that participate in football. Recently, one of the proponents of the to the state tournament from Region II, 16 districts. faction was able to get the University III and IV.

" LaPoynor's problems would arise when district play became a concern, according to a knowledgeable source. They would be able to play anyone in non-distrioct games. Still, the Flyers and Flyerettes would be in a loop that contained teams like Martins Mill, Neches and Slocum. Other than those teams, there are few close enough to play. Bonnie Northcutt, UIL Assitant Athletic Director, said the proposal would contain a provision for schools that would have travel problems. "The provision could place a school that had an excessive amount of travel in a district with schools that played football," she said. Don McKinnerney, Superintendent of Cross Roads Schools, backs proposal.
