TRUST and INVESTMENT SERVICES The Shepherd College cagers accomplished two things Saturday night. They chalked up their 20th victory of the season by defeating Alderson Broaddus College on the Shepherd hard- woods by a 72-60 score. And shortly after doing this, they learned about a one-point vic- tory by W. Va. Tech over W. Va. Wesleyan College, which moved the Rams into second place in the Northern Division of the Conference and gave them, along with Fairmont State, a first round bye in the post-season tournament play which got underway in Charleston Wed- nesday. The Rams could not dent the A-B zone defense in the first half and thus fired away consistently JOE'S,,00s. l Fresh from the waters d the Chesapeake Bay SEASONS SPECIAL Oysters R in Season WE HAVE TH EM: FRIED--STEWED and ON THE HALF SHELL ' Also :CLAMS on the Half Shell 'CRAB CAKES I IMPERIAL CRAB I CRAB SALAD 'BROILED BONELESS SHAD 31LED SHAD ROE .with Bacon FRIED SHRIMP STEAM SHRIMP STUFFED SHRIMP SHRIMP SALAD WHOLE ROCK WHOLE BASS WHOLE BLUEFISH FILLET ROCK, BROILED FILLET FLO UNDER BROILED FILLET BLUEFISH FILLET RED SNAPPER HADDOCK SWORDFISH Broiled Whole LOBSTER BROILED LOBSTER TAILS FROG LEGS ITALIAN SPAGHETTI ITALIAN ANTIPASTO JOE'S UP AND IN: Although he did not score as often and as much in this game as in other games this season, big 6-6 Kevin Roman did shove in some key baskets and placed an outstanding board game for the Jefferson High Cougars in their 70- 56 victory over the Martinsburg High Bulldogs Friday night on the Jefferson High hardwoods. In the above picture, Roman, No. 52, who got in foul trouble in the second quarter of the game and had to sit out a lot of the action, is shown going high into the air to shove in a basket for the Cougars as three Bulldog players look and hope for a miss and a chance for a rebound of the ball.

Shortly after the second half of action got underway, the Rams began to play their normal brand of offensive hall and in no time had moved out to a 68-48 lead and they held this margin until the last two minutes of play when the A-B boys closed the gap to within 8 points. Spencer led the scoring for Shepherd with 21 points, while Cain had 17.

Two of the Shepherd swim- mers qualified for the National championship competition to be held in Portland, Oregon, March 9, I0 and II. Senior Pete McCloskey took second in the 400 yard individual medley with a 4:36.6 which <,k a school record and qualified him for the nationals. He also set school records in the 500 free and 200 IM. He took third in the 500 free with a 5:10.4 and third in the 200 IM with a 2:09.5. Freshman Bart Nelson also qualified for the nationals by taking second in the 200 breast with a 2:22.9.

The victory, more one-sided than had been anticipated by anyone of the more than 1,000 wildly cheering fans, broke the string of four consecutive vic- tories which the Bulldogs had racked up over the Cougars in the past two years. And it gave Coach Tim Brinkley's Cougars revenge for an overtime defeat suffered at the hands of the Bulldogs in Martinsburg on January 12, and also their 7th straight win and 14th of the season as against three defeats. Also the victory served full notice on the Bulldogs, now showing the same 14-3 record as Jefferson, that the Cougars are certainly ready to level a powerful challenge to them for the Sectional crown again. It was in 1974 that Jefferson won the Sectional crown the last time. With a split in games this season: the traditional rivals may have another opportunity to square off for the third and "rubber" game in sectional tournament play next week since Martinsburg is favored to defeat Keyser and if they do they will run head on into the Cougars again on the Jefferson High hardwoods for the sectional championship. In contrast to the first meeting of the two teams in Jantmry when the Cougars came from behind in the home stretch and took the Bulldogs into overtime before losing, Jefferson came out with great intensity, jumped into the lead and never let up on the Bulldogs, except for a short time in the first period when Martinsburg pulled to within a point of knotting the score. The victory also gave the Cougars a 10-6. edge in their series with the Bulldogs since it began when Jefferson became a consolidated high school. The intensity of the brand of. ball played by both teams is provided in the 52 fouls which were called on the two teams in the ball game. Both teams went fun-force after the ball, both under the .baskets and on the open court and as a result, there was a lot more than usual body contact, consequently more fouls called. In fact, fouls became so plentiful on both teams that starters on both the Bulldog and Cougar teams were in foul trouble even before the first period ended. Twenty-nine of the fouls were called against Jef- ferson. Martinsburg's big 6-4 center Don Bullett, was the first to get into foul trouble, with 3:19 of the first period of play. He had kept the Bulldogs in the ball game to the point by scoring nine of the 11 points registered by the Bulldogs in the first period. In fact, he had put the Bulldogs to within a point of knotting the score when he left the game with three personal fouls. Then early in the second )erind, Jefferson got two of its starters in foul trouble in big 6-6 center Kevin Roman and Bruce Shanton, the shifty and elisive Cougar guard and player- maker. In the third period, two more Martinsburg players got into foul trouble and had to set out some time. They were Bulldogs guard Bill Harman and foward Mark Hull. A total of 11 players on the two teams either fouled out of the ball game or had three or four personal fouls at the end. Jef- ferson lost three players via the foul route, their top rebounder and scorer Mike Gibson, along with guards Bruce Sbanton and Harry barker. While Harmon was the only Bulldog who went out via the foul route, a number of others were in serious foul trouble long before the game ended. 2:19.8. He also claimed 6th in the 100 back with a new record of 59.75. In the 400 free relay, the Ram team of McCloskey, Nelson, Herlinger and Jim Botsford broke the school record by taking 4th with a 3:29.2. The same team later broke school records in both the 800 free relay and medley relay where they placed third and fourth respectively. HE FLOATS THROUGH THE AIR: It would appear in this picture that Bruce Shanton, No. 10, Jefferson High's fine playmaker and back court man, is setting upon the shoulder of a Mar- tinsburg High Bulldog player. But actually, Shanton, who played one of the key roles in the Jefferson Cougar's big win over the Martinsburg team Friday night, February 24, is shown going high into the air to hit on one of the five baskets he scored during the game. And a Martinsburg player just happens to be in the spot where Shanton wants to come down in. (Photo by Errol Leslie) Mike Gibson opened the game's scoring putting Jef- ferson into a quick 5-0 lead with two baskets and a foul shot. Then when Bulldog defenders began to collapse on Gibson to stop him, Victor Carr, an unheralded 6-foot senior forward, got loose along the baseline and in the comer and sent the Cougars out to a big 7-point lead. Carr, who had his best scoring game of the season wound up as the game's top scorer with a total of 23 points. And in contrast to the outside shooting which the Bulldogs tried very little of, and hit on sparingly, the Cougars' back court men, Shanton and Junior Grantham, registered 13 and 12 points respectively. The Bulldogs tried all night to penetrate the zone defense which the Cougars deployed, but with not much success and since they were not shooting from outside the defense, the Bulldogs had to work hard on their own Offensive hoards to get their points and stay in the ball game. Mter Gibson had given Jef- ferson a quick 5-0 lead, Bullett hit for two baskets to cut the lead ! HE WAS HOT: Victor Carr, No. 32 unheralded senior on the Jefferson Varsity cage team, put the name of again into the center of the spotlight Friday night when he greatest night of the season in Cougar Varsity cagers to a great win Martinsburg High Bulldogs before a crowd in the Jefferson High gym.

But Kevin hit on a foul shot and a field goal to put the Cougars hack into an 8-6 lead and they stayed in front the rest of the way. Shanton made it 10-6 for the Cougars with two foul shots, but then Bullett again hit on a three- point play to cut the Cougar lead to 10-9. On the next play he committed his third personal foul and went to the bench. And it was then that Victor Cart stole the spotlight by hitting for three consecutive baseline shots to shove the Cougars out to a 19-11 first period lead. In the second period,+ the Bulldogs just could not buy a basket on the Cougar defense as they hit for only one field goal and seven foul shots for 9 points, ! while Jefferson was scoring 15, 8 of them by Carr, two by Jeff i Reynolds aria The third scorewise with and Junior over most of Cougars and Harmon and Fulk scoring for the In the final again was even although aboul period, the within nine before the CougarS after a time out.
