Seago, Margaret Blacklock, Thelma Jameson, Vance Blakley, Juanita Parks,
Lucille Herricks, and Ruby Davis. The first year was not successful from
the standpoint of winning games but the girls showed good spirit and good
sportsmanship in every game they played, This alone means a great deal in

hardest workers that can be found anywhere. The girls worked with her and
appreciated her helping them. Any school is fortunate in having Miss
