'Betsy to recognize sponsors

from staff reports

   At tonight's Unicoi County vs. Elizabethton basketball game inside Treadway Gym, the EHS athletic department will pay special tribute to the businesses and organizations that have "put it on the line" for its student athletes in the community.
   EHS also asks that its fans patronize these businesses first as they unselfishly give support to Cyclone athletes. The money raised by sponsorship banners will be going for necessary equipment that needs to be upgraded annually.
   The banner sponsor program is renewed on a yearly basis. It is designed to replenish the needs of the EHS athletic programs each year. Again, EHS hopes that you will visit these businesses first, because they put your student-athletes first.
   Times, dates rescheduled
   Times have changed for this Saturday's Elizabethton at Dobyns-Bennett basketball games. The boys junior varsity will tip off at 1 p.m., girls varsity action is set for 2:30, and the boys varsity is scheduled to get underway at 4.
   There will be no girls junior varsity contest at D-B.
   Also, Happy Valley's home game with Unicoi County has been moved from Tuesday, Feb. 10 to Monday, Feb. 9, which means there will be no HV-Unicoi freshman game on the 9th.
   Local makeup games include Knox Catholic at Unaka tonight, Happy Valley at Hampton on Feb. 13, and Elizabethton at Unicoi County and David Crockett at Happy Valley, Feb. 16.
