The other problem to conmnd with was outstanding com- petition as powerful Handley High copped the Class AAA competition while Jefferson finished fourth and Martinsburg fifth. Even though the Cougars did finish fourth, Jefferson was the only one out of four local schools which did not get a first place in the competition. Disciplinary problems also did not help Coach Jim Taylor's team for four outstanding performers were benched for the meet, including Curtis Jones, Carol Puller, Derrick Winston and Willie Washington. Harold Waxman was also absent because of having to undergo an operation. A pair of Cougar sophs aided the Jefferson cause by picking up over half of their team's 63 points in the meet.

Lucille was out and walked a few holes with us on Thursday. Something new we are trying this year is our golf trip to Canaan Valley State Park. There are five foursomes slated to make the trip. Should be lots of fun. Our first major event will be the Jake Pugh Cup tournament on May 18th and.19th. Let's get out and sharpen up our game so we can beat defending Champ Barb Hooper.

George St. Charles Town Harpers Ferry Junior High Needs Funds for Its Track Roger Edge, track coach at Harpers Ferry Junior High, illustrates one reason why the school is seeking the community's aid in renovating its non-regulation track. One of Edge's feet is buried in gravel, while the other is supported sufficiently by the compacted gravel. Edge noted that the excess stone always seems to move toward the inside of the oval and is causing shin splints among a number of his athletes. This, along with the unevenness of the track, is one of the reasons between $2,000 and $3,000 will be sought to modernize the facility. Edge said any individual, club or business willing to help in the project should contact the school.
