And for the first time since 1957 the cage show will be staged on the Shepherdl College gymnasium in Shepherds-J town. The Shepherd site was selected over the Petersburg High gym- nasium, site of the action for the past few years, and Friday Mar- ch 3 and Saturday, March 4 were the dates picked. William Brown, principal of Charles Town High School, who was named as director for the tournament, said Monday that[ there will be two games each ev-I ening, with the consolation bat-i fie and championship games on Saturday evening. I The first$ game each evening] will get underway at 7 p. m. with' the second game set for about 9 p. m~ Drawing's Highlight ....

I The group also selected FloydI Elliott of Cumberland, Md. andI John Stanislawczwik, of Keyser as tournament officials. And Prin cipal Brown said they had been contacted and had accepted the tournament.

Not since 1957 when one phase of a split tournament was staged at Shepherd College has the Class AA Sectional action been staged in Jefferson County. In that act- ion five teams were involved in the tournament and Charles Town and Martinsburg battled it out on the Shepherd gynmas- ium and Franklin and Ronlney battled it out on the Potomac State floor, with Keyser drawing a "bye" in the first round of play. The second round of action was all then shifted to the Poto- mac State floor. The Charles Town High Pan- thers gave the Petersburg ttigh Vikings a real battle for two per iods Tuesday night in Petersburg before faltering in the stretch and dropping a 5846 decision. The victory was No. 13 for the Vikings as against two defeats and for Charles Town it was their fifth defeat in nine starts. The first period ended in a 15- 15 tie and at halftime the Vik- ings had moved ahead only by four points. By the end of the third quarter the Grant Countians had built up an 11 point margin (46-35) al- though the Panthers sliced this lead to four points before the Vik ings ptilled away again.
