Pulaski Christian Church attended the North American Christian Convention in Dallas, Texas from July 6-9. While there, the Bible Bowl team competed with 95 other teams fro all over the U. S. Questions were from :he Books of 1st and 2nd Samuel. The competition was in the form of a play-off similar to the State Basketball tournament. The team members were Rexanne Handlin, Candy Baker, Karen Buckles, Diane Doom and Shirley Lamar, coached by Mr. and Mrs. Lavonn Clark and Roger Murphy. They won 3 out of 4 games which placed them in the top sixteen teams. In the process, they met three of the five former national champions beating two of the teams and lost by only 45 points to the third. That team went on to take 1st place. This is the first year Mt. Pulaski has had a Bible Bowl team and are to be commended on the long hours of study and practice they put in. We, of the Mt. Pulaski C. C., are extremely proud of our young people.
