Bittersweet Week For Bobcats tation and sell certalnreales- late located in Covington County, Both Paxton's varsity and B teams suffered their first de- feats this week, but redeemed themselves with impressive victories also. On Friday night, the B-team pressed themselves into an im- pressive 58-23 victory over Freeports Bullpups. The top scorers for the Bobcats were Paul Varnum with 19 points and Rocky Stokes with I I. A bad omen was an ankle sprain surf- ered by Mike Hulion; he was missed badly later on. The varsity ran into a very hot Freeport club and lost a close one 54-53. Freeport played excellent defense and inside and forced Danny Gomillion with 19 points and DeunisGeoghagan with 11 to pump up accurate outside shots. However, as the battle went down to the buzzer, Freeport scored on a 20 foot shot with 9 seconds left to re- take the lead. A last Paxton shot just missed, and the var- sity's win string stopped at seven. Saturday night .Munson found the Bobcats renewed. Both teams won impressively, with the varsity looking especially good, 120-38. Clint Washington pumped in 31 points for the sea- son high for an individual Bob- cat. The B team tasted defeat Monday night, December II, in a heart-breaker to Ponce de Leon. The Bobcats were play- ing without Mike Hulion, and his presence was sorely missed when both Paul Varuum and Stan Smith fouled out early. Game- .lY battling back with ball-hawk- ing defense and fantastic out- side shooting, Paxton's "little men" stood tall; Rocky Stockes pumped in 16, Wayne Milton 14, and Billy Pridgeon 8. Paul Varnum had 8, while Stan Smith's rebounding was im- pressive in Paxton's futile rally. The varsity .was a much better story; gaining vengence for four losses to the Pirates last year, the Bobcats gave the Pirates their first home loss in four years!!!!!!!!! Paxton's varsity showed their best defense and slickest pass- Ing attack of the season in de- molishing the state Class A champions. Corrigan Camp'belf collected 19 points, ruled the backboards, and helped shut off the Pirates best scorer. Earl Art Class Doing Murals Mr. Wayne Wooten's art class are doing Murals to decorate the Paxton lunchroom. One mural done by Kathy Stewart and Violet Duncan has been put on the door of the cafeteria. The murals are done by drawing pictures on a large piece of paper. Then one makes use of parrifan wax to coat part of his picture. Mr. Woolen then helps the students by dipping a piece of cloth in water color paint and spreading it across the picture. It will not dry on the part of the pictures that has been covered with the wax. The art class urges everyone to try this enjoyable experiment at least once. It makes a nice Christmas gift too!! Ashley shot well for 12 points, and Dennis Geoghagan collected 8 points, many of them in the crucial final period when the Pirate's desperation press al- lowed him to play one-on-one. For the Bobcats, it was a vic- tory to be savored. However, celebrations must be shortlived. The Bobcats have to face a rematch with State Class AA Champion Port St. Joe at the Shark's gymnasium Saturday night, then entertain Bethlehem on Monday. Both games could be tough. Through the first ten games, the varsity is 9-1. The individual statistics are: TEACHER OF THE WEEK Charlie Whartley This week's teacher of the week is Charlie Whaztly.
