SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 1978 The runner-up trophy in the West Virginia AAA, Region III, finals is presented jointly to Jefferson's Bruce Shanton and Vic Carr after the Cougars dropped a tough 66-61 overtime game to an equally-tough West Fairmont quintet.

Roman and Grantham with 12 Each time the Cougars at- tempted to overtake the Bears in the second half, it seemed that fate would step in, or more aptly, the turnover. Hannah and Ron Everhart forded Jefferson to regroup via a timeout by combining to push Fairmont's lead to 44-38 in the third stanza. Grantham responded to his coach by sinking two field goals and Bruce Shanton hit his lone fielder of the game to get Jef- ferson back into the battle. Fairmont's Larry Miles an- swered the Cougar shooters with two swishers and then Gibson retaliated at the opposite end of the floor to bring the Cougars to within a pair of points. The see-saw fray continued before a jammed house at the armory with Grantham rallying for a bucket that knotted the game with just 52 seconds remaining in regulation play. Miles, a big man who played the center of the offense well against Jefferson, got the Polar Bears back in front with a score and just 23 seconds remaining. With a Gibson jumper boun- cing away from the bucket Roman rebounded and sent a 15- footer through the hoop to keep Jefferson alive in regional play. Fairmont, on a turnover gained possession of the ball once more during the fourth quarter, but a Hannah shot was off the mark. However, it was Hannah's four each and Carr with 10. Shanton and reserve guard Harry Barker ended with two points each. Fairmont's Hannah, Ar- misread and Everhart were the only Polar Bears in double figures with 19, 13 and 12 points respectively.

COUGAR BATSMEN From Page 15 Shortstop is being looked at as a rotating job since both Jay and John Mahoney are aslo pitchers. Lowery can also call on Roman and Hart Lwe to fill this spot capably. On the hot corner, Jeff Reynolds will he the starter with Todd Magaha backing him up. Reynolds had 12 homers over his two-year career and led the team in RBI's last year with 28, not to mention his over .360 batting average. Turning to the outfield, speed- burner Tony Smith will roam the turf in centerfield, while Warren Stewart will flank him in left and Dave Boyd in right. Backing up this trio will be Rutherford and sophomore Dean Ballenger, who can field on any of three positions. Even though Dillow has ap- parently gotten the starting nod behind the plate, Lowery is looking to develop a number of other catchers for this and next season. First-year man Kevin i Wilt, a junior, will be the main backup for Dillow, but Lowery pointed to two junior varsity players, Jim Nichols and Keith Smith, who can he counted on if needed. "We'll work them out at the position and see how they come along", said Lowery. "Overall, we lost three players through graduation who are now Bulldogs, talent-wise. Martinsburg, which handed the Cougars their first loss of 1977, lost its top four players, returning only Bob Bartles and Steve Jones, both excellent performers. Although a tough schedule, Cook estimates that his team should be able to win at least 60 percent of its matches "Han- . I dley and Harrisonburg will he the toughest", Cook said, "but Mercersburg, Morgantown and St. james will be the key tests, especially Morgantown since its our first outing". playing first string ,orlDistric t Diving Shepherd", the Cougar coach lamented. "We have to guard r iChampionshi p season last year...we can't become complacent because we i have never won the sectional Larry Reed won the prep age- tournament two years running", group diving at the boys ILarff Reed Winsl he concluded. Although Jefferson's long baseball schedule was supposed to begin Tuesday, poor field conditions resulted in a can- cellation. The Cougars were scheduled to begin the season with a 1 p.m. encounter with Handley at Jefferson High this afternoon. The Cougars are slated to return to the diamond on Saturday at 11 a.m. when they entertain Loudonn County in a doubleheader at JHS. On Tuesday, March 28, Lowery's batsmen will take to the field against Loudoun Valley at Jefferson High beginning at 4 p.m. JEFFERSON From Page 15 inconsistent. Owens' serve appears to be solid and his backhand is better than his closest competitor. Owens and Hart are sophomores while Espinosa will be closing out his scholastic tennis career through graduation. Cook indicated that Hart is the more experienced of the trio, being agile with good reflexes and has developed a good forehand. Serves, backhands and net play by Hart are in- consistent, but he has shown signs of developing these plays into good consistent strokes. Cook expects to get a lot of service out of Paul Espinosa and Brian Gaudoin later in the season. Both sophomores, this duo has some experience and quickness, but according to the Cougar coach, need to develop more aggressive traits of play. Also included in this year's team are Joe Bouchelle, a senior who has had little experience and Kenny Mercer, a sophomore, also with little play under his belt. Overall, Cook views this team as having great potential with all of his players having good at- titudes. But, he added, the Jefferson team also faces a Southern District cham- pionships held at Camden County Vocational School in Berlin, New Jersey on March 18. Senior division member Matt Meyers placed 9th in the 200 I.M. in this meet. In the girls Southern District championships held at Salisbury State College on March 12, Julie Benner placed 4th in the prep 200 freestyle while Tracy Kidwell was 8th in the same event. Jackie Willingham was a member of the 6th place senior division freestyle relay in this meet. The top six finishers in each event on the district level earned medals, while the top nine finishers in each event qualified for the North-South meet to be held at the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA in New Jersey on April 1-2. In the Towson Tyke cham- pionships held on March 12, at Towson YMCA, Jenelle Reed achieved her best times ever in both the backstroke and breastroke. Some 75 members of the Hagerstown team will par- ticipate in the Spring Sprints AAU "B" meet on April 2 in their final outing of the winter season. Tennis Lessons To Be Offered At Park Group tennis lessons for men and women will be held at the Jefferson Memorial Park this spring. Two beginners classes will be offered. Section I will meet on Tuesday's from 10 a.m. until 11:30 from April 11 through May 16. Section II will meet on Monday through Friday the week of May 1-5 from 1 p.m. until 2:30 each day. If enough interest is shown an intermediate-advanced class will be held on Thursdays beginning April 13 and con- tinuing through May 18 from 1 p.m. until 2:30 each day. Instructing the classes will he Glenn H. Edwards. Players may much tougher schedule than did last year. For example, the Cougars' opening match against Morgantown promises to be a good one and possibly a real test of the mettle of the Jefferson team since the visiting Mohigans won their regional tournament last year. New features of this year's schedule include the Handley Invitational. Handley is ex- pected to be a contender for the Virginia State Championship. Harrisonburg, Va., which has won the state title in three of the past five years, will be featured in that tournament also, along with James Wood, of Win- chester. St. James, one of the two teams to beat Jefferson last year, has several fine players. and Mercersburg, another Cougar foe this season, will return several players this season to go with sophomore phenomenon Andy Lynch. The Cougars will face arch- rival Martinsburg twice early in the season (April 2 and April 12) with Cook's team apparently holding the edge over the NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING March 20, 1978 Please take notice that a public hearing will be held on Tuesday, April 25, 1978, at 7:30 P.M., in the office of the Jefferson County Planning Commission, located on the second floor of the Court House Annex, 104 East Washington Street, in the City of Charles Town, to consider public com- ments on the following final plat which has been submitted to the Planning Commission for ap- it register by phoning 725.7929 prior to April 7.
