GROVE HIGH SCHOOL
REVIEW OF SEASON
THE basketball season gave promise of being very successful in spite of the
numerous handicaps. Most of the regulars had returned and there was
a wealth of new material ready and anxious for berths on the team.
At the call of Miss Dunn, as coach, many contestants came forward
to try their skill with the spheroid. Ruby Miller, one of the survivors of
the old team, was elected captain, and Mary W. Poyner, manager.
Through their earnest and untiring efforts, together with the able assistance of Miss
Dunn, the team was soon in tune and an excellent schedule arranged.
Our first game of the season was with the fast Benton High School team. After a
fast, snappy and hard-fought battle, they won a victory off the Grove shanks. Grove
showed excellent spirit and ability as ball players in this contest. Maxwell was a star at guard, but every member of the team deserves favorable mention.
Next we journeyed over to Springville and battled the Springville "Tigers" on their
own soil. This was an excellent game. Grove shanks played a wonderful game of ball,
but were defeated after a gruelling contest and close game by those dreadful "Tigers." Maxwell and Milber again showed ability as guards.
"It is a long road that never turns." With two defeats and no victory to our credit,
we were indignant. We advanced upon the territory of the dreadful Puryearites and
met them in mortal combat on the Puryear High School grounds. The stars had so
willed, and we wreaked out sweet revenge on this sextet. This was an excellent game
from Alpha to Omega. When the whistle blew the Puryearites had lost, 1 -9. Brandon
and Ivie deserve favorable mention as artists with the spheroid. Maxwell and Miller
again proved their ability as guards, and last but not least. Cole and Poyner played an
We were rather optimistic now. 1 he Grove shanks met the fast Jackson High School
team on their soil. The basketball fans who saw this game saw an exceedingly good one. The Jackson sextet played a good game of ball, but met their Waterloo in the excellent playing of the Grove shanks and were made to drink the dregs out of the bitter cup of defeat. The score was 10-9. Brandon and Ivey showed both speed and skill with the spheroid. Maxwell was a shining star at guard. Miller Cole and Poyner lived up to their fame.
The Springville "Tigers," elated over their success, went on the warpath again. This
time they invaded our territory and were met by the Grove shank's on the high school
grounds. A fast and exciting game was played, clean throughout, which spoke well for
the Grove team.
The Grove shanks had the edge on them most of the time, and twisted the "Tiger's"
tail from beginning to end. The "Tigers" had lost their scratch. The forwards were
not skilled artists any longer. Time and again they had chances to score, but alas, the
stars had not so willed. The whistle blew, the game was over, the "Tigers" had been
humbled as never before, and a successful season was closed.
