Seymour Warriorettes Win State Birth
Seymour Herald - 21 February 1952
Seymour Warriorettes were overjoyed Saturday night when they defeated Troy in the district basketball tournament in Bloomfield because it meant a chance to participate in the state tournament in Des Moines next week.
The Seymour girls made the grade by defeating Knoxville, 68-51, Thursday night, and downing Troy, 70-57, in the final round. Joy Liggett scored 50 points in the Knoxville encounter and racked up 62 points for Seymour against Troy.
Scores by quarters in the Knoxville game were 16-10, 38-22, 52-39, and 68-51. Hawkins, Whitmore, Liggett, Stamps, Head and Young were the starters, as usual, but Shubat, B. Vruble and Vanderlinden also saw action.
In the Troy game, quarter scores were 20-17, 34-27, 56-42 and 70-57. The usual six started, but when Stamps fouled out, Hawkins was moved to the guard court and Gill came in to take her place up front. B. Vruble also got into the game.
