1953 - TWIN WIN Gibbons Boys, Girls Hit Top In 2-AA...
TWIN WIN Gibbons Boys, Girls Hit Top In 2-AA Race Sweeping a double - header from previously - unbeaten Denton, Gibbons High's cagers ruled District 2-AA basketball today. Gibbons Gophers collared Denton, 62-28, in the main event after the Gibbons girls had claimed a 41-21 decision in the opener at Gibbons gym here. Going into the game, Gibbons and Denton boys and girls were the only unbeaten teams in 2-AA. That leaves Gibbon* at the top now with the first half of the schedule complete. Oscar Ford poured in 18 points to pace Coach L. D. Taylor's Gophers, defending champs of 2- AA. Leading scorer for the Gibbons girls was Willie Mae Rollerson with 23. Monday night the Gophers of Coach Taylor will meet Rox ton Negro High, coached by F. W. Armstrong, in a March of Dimes benefit game at Gibbons H i-g h. All proceeds go to the polio drive.
