GEORGIA'S HOTTEST TEAM SO FAR THIS SEASON

MCHS Picture

Here's the hottest aggregation of basketball players in North Georgia, if their record is to be taken as a standard. Murray County High of Chatsworth has produced many championship teams over the past year (perhaps the writer intended to say "past few years"?), but even after losing star players, Mickey Long and Ray Godfrey, to Dalton High, the Murray Indians have already won 10 straight victories this season, being defeated only once, by Blue Ridge.

The team has won 35 of 37 contests in the past two seasons.

Left to right: Capt Malvin Townsend, Charlie Carnes, Dillard Owensby, Herbert Rouse, Luther Jones, Calvin Townsend, Phil Bradley, George Legg and Coach C.W. Bradley.
