Racing Association Shenandoah Downs, Turf Club Memben Shenandoah Dowm and the Charles Town Turf Club have been elected to membership in the Thoroughbred Racing Associations (sic), a national organization devoted to bet- ng thoroughbred racing.

TRA membership also means that Shenandoah and Charles Town will be policed by the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau, the security arm of the TRA. The TRPB polices racing throughout the country, providing a vast in- formation network that helps keep undesirables out of the sport. The new additions bring the TRA membership to 58 racetracks, McDonald said.

Jefferson managed two second-place finishes, these coming in the distant medley and the two-mile relay, but this just wasn't quite enough scoring to overcome that extra four points by the Bulldogs. The disqualification in the 440- relay especially hurt the Cougars because when this happens, no points are accrued. The actual handoff took place too early between the third and final leg in the run, which results in disqualifcation. Although no Jefferson County teams were entered in the AA Boys competition, there was a close contest right down to the wire among all four teams which were entered. Clarke County came away with the trophy with 28 points, followed by Musselman, 23 points; Hedgesville, 22 points; and Hampshire, 18 points. Jefferson finished third in the girls competition with a total of 22 points. In second was Loudoun County with 24 points and Loudoun Valley took the title by rolling up an insurmountable 42 points. Fourth place went to Musselman with 15 points and Martinsburg was fifth with only 2 points. Jefferson's girls failed to pick up any wins in the overall competition, but placed second three times and had two, third. place finishes. Boys AAA Results 880 Relay--lst. Jefferson (R. Hosby, K.
