For instance; there definitely be at least two new teams on the 1966 Panther schedule since both Hancock (Md.) ttigh and Petersburg will be missing. All athletic relations between both and Charles Town, are being terminated.

The Panthers. who fielded, a re- vamped starting line-up as a re- sult of two re ,ulars having quit the team lust two days before the tournament, not only had a bad nizht in shooting, but failed to control the boards as they have done tn most of their battles this season. Coach Bill Jordan's Panthers did give the Vikings a battle for two periods, but then in the third period, they not only had a miser- able shooting rdeord, but also completely lost control of the boards and as a result they fell so far behind they never could catch up. In this period the Pan- thers, hit for only five shots in 39 attempts And while they were missing their shots the Vikings were burying them under a barr- age of baskets to move to a 19- point lead. In the final period the Vikings continued to fire away at the basket with great accuracy, and within the space of five minutes into the final period they had moved to a 25-point lead. bounder, Ernie Jones, Charles Town, showed very little often- sive punch during the* battle.

One of the features of the meeting was the election of six members to the membership corn mittee for the 1966 season. These elected were: Mrs. Glen (Marge) Brown, Mrs. Margaret Blackford, Edward L. McDonald and Junior Jones for two year periods and Jack Akers and Oliver Kastle for three.year periods. This committee will in turn meet Monday night, March 14, at 7:30 and appoint the committee chairmen and membership who will head up the club's activities during the coming golfing season. Junior Jones presided at the meeting which included Dr. and ter Glenn. all officers of the Sleepy Hollow Golf and Country Crab Corporation, and some 35 members of the club. Club Pro John Elwood showed two movies about golf, one on putting and the other on pitch-and-run shots. Both were very interesting and instructive to the members. Door prizes awarded by Mr. Elwood were won by Conrad Ham mann, and C. W. Starr. There was a great deal of inter- est manifested on the approach- ing season and it was understood that several home-and-home mat- ches with nearby clubs had al- ready been scheduled and would be announced in the next few days. A complete schedule of events, both for the men and wo- men will be released after the membership committee meets next week. It was also announced that the course was in fine con- dition after the winter and many of the members were already busy working out whenever poss- ible. All indications point to another busy year at the popular Mrs. Marshall Glenn, Mr. and course here, with some new men- Mrs. Conrad Hammann, and Wal-. bers joining the club this season. ATTEND CHURCH SUNDAY m ~a ToBe The Charles Town Junior High cagers appeared Tuesday night to be headed for a berth in the finals of the six-school Junior High School cage tournament staged on the Charles Town Jun- ior High hardwoods Monday thro- ugh Wednesday night, when sud- denly they blew sky high and suffered a 37-33 defeat at the hands of the St. Joseph's Catholic Junior High cagers of Martins- burg in the first game of the semi finals of tournament play. The defeat eliminated the Bark er-coached Panthers from tourna- ment play and sent St. Joe's into the finals against the Musselman Junior High cagers who scored a decisive and easy 56-23 victory over Shepherdstown in the sec- ond half of the doubleheader. St. Joseph's had moved into the semi-final round of play by up- setting Hedgesville in the open- ~ng round of play Monday night by a 28-22 score; and Musselman gained their semi-finals berth by scoring an easy 59-32 victory over Harpers Ferry. In the Tuesday night action between St. Joe and Charles Town, the two teams battled each other on even terms in the first period, both teams hitting for only seven points in the low-scor- ing period. Both teams had three field goals and a foul shot, with Roth, Kim Reid and L. Cart, hitt ing for fielders for Charles Town and Frank Sowers getting two fielders and Bill Farrell one for St. Joe. In the second period which saw very little in the way of scoring, field goals by Kim Reid and L. Carr was all the scoring for Char lea Town, while a field goal by Jim Kee and foul shots by Knies- ly and Dave Kee provided all the scoring for St. Joe. With the score tied at 11.11 going into the second half, Char- les Town began hitting from the floor and rolled in 14 points to TURN TO PAGE 2--B Aft Tournament Team ERNIE JONES Ernie Jones and the school's cheerleaders salvaged some of the honors of the Section 2-AA schoolboy basketball tournament staged at Petersburg High School last week for Charles Town High School, even though the Panther cagers were upset in the semi, finals of play.
