The high school progam includes a varsity boys team, ~ varsity girls team, a junior varsity boys team, and a junior varsity girls team.

Despite marked improvement all through the season, the Jefferson High wrestling team failed to qualify a single grappler for state competition in the regional tournament at Fair- mont last week-end. Competing against fifteen other schools, the best Cougar wrestlers could do was capture a couple of fifth places and a couple of sixths. Bobby Delgade (98) was fifth with a 12-0 decision in his final match; Mike Breeden (112), also finished fifth with a pin in 4:01 of his final match; and Roy Jackson (145) also finished fifth. Tom Sullivan (119) picked up a sixth place; Jeff Jones (155), Ted Shuff (165) and Monte Ridgeway (Unl.), also came in sixth. In fact, only three area wrestlers qualified for state competition. From Hedgesville, they were Bryant Cosner (167) and Martin Albanese (155). And from Martinsburg, Mike Lupis (98) placed second in regional competition. As for Jefferson, Coach Gary Wrat- chford's young team, which improved steadily as the season progressed, gained valuable experience which still stand the Cougars in good stead for the 1985-66 season.
