The fast-stepping B.Y. high school Wildcats will journey to Eureka Friday, and will tangle with Tintic high school that evening in a practice tussle. Coach Joe Buys' proteges swung into action last week, when they journeyed to Heber and handed the Wasatch high hoopsters a 24-9 trouncing. The Wildcats are coming along nicely at present, and expect to put a formidable team into the Alpine division competition next month. The present regular lineup has Aldy Smith and Drayton Nuttall, forwards; Russell Ellsworth, center; Bill Wilson and Wilson Booth, guards. Ned Smart, diminutive forward who won his letter last season, has been out of the game for a time, recovering from an injury. Clayton Peterson, Tom Eastmond and Joe Swenson, all forwards, are three men who have been seeing considerable action, and cannot be counted out of the running for a regular berth as yet. The game with Eureka is of exceptional interest since the Wildcats’ showing against a strong Nebo division team is of real importance in a pre-season schedule.
