Actually, Coach Bill Blair hopes that Saturday's game is not the last, that a victory over St. Maria Goretti Fri- day afternoon will send the Cardinals into a return contest with Charles Town Junior High Monday evening in the Panther Classic. There's a good chance that will hap- pen, because Shepherdstown defeated St. Maria Goretti on Valentine's Day, 48-28 with Schley scoring 13 points, Branson 12 and I.~wery 9. and to an undefeated Romney team, 44-40, in overtime. In all three games, Branson led the way with 14, 16 and 14 points; Lowery had 9 and 13, Oliver 15, Schley 12 and Demoulin 10. The Romney game was a thriller, right up to the final whistle, and the difference basically was missed foul shots, Shepherdstown going 0 for 5 in the overtime. The current Shepherdstown record is 7 wins, 8 defeats.

And the first official action in which the youngsters desiring to par- ticipate in league play this Summer, will be the registration of players. Mrs. Lynn Shuff, league president, reports that registration of youngsters between the ages of five and 19 for boys and girls desiring to play Little League Baseball this Summer will take place on four different dates. Registrations will be accepted Wednesday and Thursday evenings, Feb. 27-28 and March 6 and 7, between the hours of 7 and 9 p.m. in the main lobby at Jefferson High School. Mrs. Shuff emphasized that these will be the only dates registrations will be accepted and any child that does not register on these dates will not be eligible to participate in this Sum- mer's league program. All youngsters for all five divisions of league play which includes "Tee Ball," Minor, Regular, Senior and Big League, including those who played last season, must register. Any boy or girl who reaches the age of six before August 1, and will not reach the age of 9 prior to August I is eligible to participate in the "Tee Ball" program this Summer. Any boy or girl in the county who does reach the age of nine before August 1, but does not reach the age of 13 prior to Eighth Graders Complete Perfect Season At CTJH and title games were set for Tuesday but were changed with Jefferson High rescheduled the Martinsburg game for Tuesday, February 26). In the meantime, Charles Town Junior High's Purple Panthers have been on a winning streak which saw Coach Harry Barker's charges defeat Hedgesville, Harpers Ferry, Berkeley Springs and Shepherdstown. In the Hedgesville game, the Pan- thers took an early lead, then coasted to a 52-35 decision on the home hard- woods. Harpers Ferry was the next victim, in a 65-35 rout, again at home. Berkeley Springs also fell by the wayside as Charles Town posted 56-28 decision at Berkeley Springs with Davon Puller scoring 16 points and An- thony McDonald 8. Farris had 8 for the host Indians. Finally, Charles Town defeated Shepherdstown, 48-18, at Charles Town as Puller again led the scoring with 16 points and Tony Pierson picked up 9. R.C. Branson paced Shepherdstown with 10. that date is eligible for minor, or regular division paly. And any boy or girl who reaches the age of 13 prior to August 1 and does not reach the age of 16 prior to that date is eligible to tryout for the Senior Division of ,League play. Also any boy or girl who reaches the age of 16 prior to Aug. 1, but does not reach the age of 19 prior to that date is eligible to tryout for the Big Division of League play. To register a child must be accom- panied by a parent or guardian, a copy of the child's birth certificate must be provided for the league officials by April 20. Any child that does not sub- mit a birth certificate to the league will not be eligible to participate in the program since league insurance regulations require that a birth cer- tificate from some governmental agency is required. Although a $10 donation is asked of each player registering to play or a $20 maximum for any one family, Mrs. Shuff emphasized that the fee is not mandatory and is certainly not meant to im~ a hardship on any children desiring to participate in the program. All children desiring to be registered will be and all who register will be given the opportunity to play. Mrs. Shuff said no child will be kept out of the program for failure to pay the registration fee. The important thing Mrs. Shuff said is the league warts as many registrants as possible. Within the Little League organiza- tions there are five different divisions of play, the "Tee Ball" League; Farm or Minor League; Little League; Senior League and the Big League. The Jefferson County Little League is a part of the International body which has headquarters in Williamsport, Pa. In addition to Mrs. Shuff as presi- dent, other league officers are: Jim Pierce, vice-president of the "Tee Ball" League, who may be reached at 725-0258; Walkie Tabler, vice- president of the Minor League, who may be reached by calling 876-2136; Gene Dawson, vice-president of the Little League, who can be reached at 725-8866; Mac Shuff~ vice-president of the Senior Division, who may be reached at 876-6057 and Dick Bline, vice-pr~ident of the Big League, telephone No. 263-4830.
