The Caddo Herald
January 9, 1925
At 7:30 Saturday night, January 10, the Durant Lions will take the floor against the fastest and best balanced basketball team that has ever represented Caddo High School. The game will conclude a week of hard work for the Durant team as it played Sherman High Tuesday night, losing to the Texans by a score of 22 to 16. It will meet the Tishomingo team on the Durant Court Friday evening.
Coach Dendy has been running his squad at top speed since its excellent showing in the game Friday and it is rapidly rounding into a bunch of first-class basketball tossers. Faudree has greatly improved in goal shooting and since missing several sure shots against Roberta he seems to have his eye on the basket and tosses from all angles. Dunham is a veteran basketball man and excels in guarding and team work. His presence on the floor encourages every player to work hard and he fights to the final whistle. With Briggs, A. Downing, and Pirtle going in good condition and keeping up the pace Caddo should give the more experienced Durant aggregation a run for the money. With Davison, Henninger, and Coffey in reserve, Coach Dendy has some good material in case one of the regulars should be unable to go a full game.
At 8:30 the O.P. C. girls will arrive and play the local girls’ team. The Caddo girls have lost only one game in the past two years and that was to O.P.C. last year by a margin of one point so the fans may rest assured that they will exert every effort to win this game. Eugenia Sargent, Rosie Smith, Marilee Styron, Beth Moore, and Luda Mae Ware are the members of last year’s team who are back in the game and Coach Chiles has excellent new material in Odessa Faudree, Retta Jones, Doris Maytubby and Minnie Herod. It looks like a big year for our girls’ team too.
The court will be arranged so that more space for spectators will be provided and a record crowed is expected as the O. P. C. School trucks are coming packed with rooters for their team.
The doors will be open at 7 o’clock and admission will be 15c and 25c.
