An old clipping explains the unusually close eleven point game with Dickinson. Boonie Wilkening and Paul Blanchard both fouled out in the third quarter. Dickinson was within one point in that quarter.

Dan Jensen

Well Pat was an eyewitness and I just read the scorebook later.

I did note that Boonie scored 19 and 25 in the first two games and only 8 in the third one but did not know he and Paul fouled out.

Maybe Pat and Garvis Hadley took up the slack as they led the scoring with 15 and 12 respectively.

Dan Jensen

Well, it was like old times today as we hammered ol' Dickinson, 99-49. Coach Buddy, like his father, showed mercy.

This report from Peggy Carlisle: "The game was one that the Bench played almost half of the game, probably more, because the 1st team did not even get on the court the last quarter. By quarters, it was 14-9, Halftime 49-21,after 3rd period 80-35, and Buddy asked his player who had the ball, to hold it, or we possibly would have scored over 100. I'm sure he felt for his former assistant, Mike Odom. They are very good friends still."

The new UIL alignment has been announced and, after lo these many years--I think since 1986, Clear Creek and Dickinson are back in the same district as the Gators move up from Class 4A. I, for one, am quite pleased. They were my number one target in days of yore.

The new League City school, Clear Springs, joins the eight team District 24-5A with Pearland out.

Maybe it comes a year too late. Dickinson has a terrific girls basketball team and could very well win state after finishing second last year. Clear Creek is undefeated in girls play and it would have been good to see them play this year.

But, maybe not since Dickinson is so good. I am willing to wait a year for a win over Dickinson in anything.

Mark Cook

Dickinson has not been in our district since 1976 for sure because that was my freshman year and they weren't in it then. Our district those years was Lake, DP, Rayburn, Dobie, Pasadena, South Houston, La Porte.

Dan Jensen

Mark, 1986 is the year that I got. Apparently Dickinson went up to 5A after your day, then back down in 1986.

I wish that the rivalry with Dickinson had been maintained regardless of the difference in classifiction. I would assume that it was Dickinson's idea not to do so, rather than ours.

Do any of the Carlisles have any background on this?

Buddy Carlisle

We actually played Dickinson for about 4 years from 2003-2006, I think. We never lost but they had a really good team in about 2005, I think, and it was a great game at their place.

The Wildcats didn't do well at Brook last night, losing 70-57. The worst news though was that Pearland upset Lake 35-34 at Lake to put us in a bad spot as far as getting in the playoffs goes.

We almost have to win out to tie Pearland for 4th now. We must beat Lake at home Friday and then Pearland and Bwood on the road the last game of the season.

I saw the girls cap a perfect 12-0 district record with an easy win over Clear Brook last night. We will play either Willowridge or Hightower in the first round of the playoffs next week.

Dan Jensen

Forget fourth place if that is a ticket to the playoffs. That nonsense is for losers.

Should we somehow stumble into fourth, we ought to refuse to play. It would be only one game anyway and the money should not affect the overall budget very much.

Speaking of losers, our distict record is 3-6 for this year. What are the prospects for next year? What kind of season are our junior varsity and sophomore teams having? Please, someone give us some hope.

Coach Carlisle at Southwest Texas

  • Coach and Basketball - Senior Year
    The photos in this album are taken from the yearbook, entitled The Pedagog, from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos for the 1948/49 school year. Coach Carlisle was a senior that year. The photos tell a story of a very accomplished and talented athlete but also a person who had many other outstanding attributes as well. Thanks for Peggy Carlisle for supplying the yearbook from which these photos were taken.
