Lettermen. . By ED SATTERFEELD It Is likely that Yorktown High School will write a continued chapter to its cage exploits of last season The rest- of the county may as well face the facts: The Tigers are as big and tough if not tougher than a year ago. Coach Earl Snider's Mt. Fleas- ant Townshippers won the per centage and tournament cham pionships in the county last year. It took a city high school team to eliminate them in the sectional, Muncie Burris getting the job done in a semifinal tilt. 1 Six Veterans Return Six of that crew are back In harness, Including! Modie (The Man) Beeman, all 6-3 and 216 pounds of him. But hold your hat, there are some other behemoths to go along with him. 1 Nine members on Yorktown's 23-man squad reach the two-yard mark, including seven In the senior-junior group, from which are at or above the 5-10 measurement. In addition to Beeman, other re turnees include Fred Haisley, Jim Mitchell, Bob Reynolds, Max Hensley and Dick Morrison. Beeman someones to do the job the big for ward did last year. Swander's output of 535 points was an all-time scoring figure for Delaware County, Including both Central and Burris High Schools. Moving into the Yorktown firm ament in the offseason were Jim Green and Gary Hartley. Green, a strapping 6-3, 185-pound jun ior, is no relation to Larry Green, while Hartley is a 5-9 sophomore. Both are from Muncie. That several of last year's reg ulars may appear too complacent about the situation ahead was voiced Thursday night by Coach Snider, who said Reynolds is the only athlete assured of a starting berth when the Tigers oppose Mun cie Burris Nov. 12 at Ball Gym nasium. Among the younger generation, the veteran Yorktown head man likes what he sees in Joe Reasoner, Melvin Koontz and Green. Rea soner. a junior, stands 6-1, and within a short time are doomed for disappointment. Snider, beginning his third season at York- town, describes the iresnman ag' gregation as "cracker jacks they are going to be tough." Incidentally, Edgar Baney Is In charge of the ninth graders.
