We of the Yld Cat staff wish to express our thanks to you for the support you have given the team thus far. In the past issues of the school paper we have asked for your cooperation in backing our team and cheering them on to victory. We are very pleased with the results. You have not only cheered for our boys, but you have also made our faculty proud of you. Even the towns people have noticed what good sports the students of Y high have been. This is especially noticed during the ball games when foul shots are made. Most of the opposing schools have booed whenever a foul has been called on one of their men, and enoughnoise couldnt be made when our man has stepped to the free throw line in an attempt to add another point or two to our scare. You are to be commended on the attitude you have taken this basketball season. We only hope that you will keep up the good works and continue cheering our team through the STATE TOURNAMENT.
