CANDIDATE FOP,. JEFFERSON COUNTY Board of Education Charles Town District , MAY PRIMARY T-- Poi. Ad By Mohigans Whip Cougar Tennis Team, 7-2 Here A senior-laden Morgantown tennis team whirled into Jef- ferson County last week and defeated Coach Mike Cook's netsters, 7-2. For Jefferson, which has a team composed of two seniors, two juniors and six sophomores, it was a frustrating afternoon except for number five player Sam Hart who won his singles match and for the number one doubles team of Harry Barker and Carl Jackson. Hart, one of Cook's highly- touted sophs, took his Morgantown opponent to the final point of a tie-breaker before taking the final point and the match. Jackson and Barker, who are constant companions in the game of doubles, won their doubles match by a score of 8-6. The absence of Todd Henshaw, the number three seed for the Cougars, meant that Coach Cook had to shift his starting lineup, moving Vic Espinosa, Powell Owens and Brian Gaudoin up a notch in the competition. As it ended up, Jefferson had four sophomores playing against four seniors and the experience paid off for the visiting Mohigans. In the number one match in singles play, Barker lost a heartbreaking 8.6 decision to Joe Hall, rated the number one or two player in the entire region. Cook pointed with pride to Barker's performance against Hall, since it was his first varsity outing. As far as other doubles competition, Cook said that he had two potentially good doubles teams in addition to Barker and Jackson. But, he added, these kids have to play together for awhile to get to know each other. In rating Morgantown, the defending regional champion, Cook said that he believed his Cougars netters could win against the Mohigans if his team were healthy. Jefferson moves to Mar- tinsburg today at 3 p.m. to play the Bulldogs and then will meet the same team the following.
