Devilettes Take District 9-A Title

In the beginning of the 1980 - 81 basketball season the devilettes of Celeste High School faced some changes made by the University Interscholastic League in Austin. Playing in District 34A the Celeste ladies had only one familiar opponent - Bland Tigers; other Tigers came from Trenton and Blue Ridge. Savoy Cardinals and Ector Eagles completed the new slate of competition. Savoy Cardinals habitually made the Regional Tournament at Kilgore; Blue Ridge had many District Championships on record. A real challenge was ahead for Coach G. W. Tillerson, assistant Kay Cawthon, and the twenty-one young ladies to make another great basketball season. A real determination to meet this test resulted in long hours of hard work.
