12 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, MAY l !, 1978 Shepherd Women's Softball Coach Pleased With Results SHEPHERDSTOWN, W. Va. -- "I'm pleased with the team results for the first year," Coach Sherry Brown of the Shepherd College Women's Softball Team said. "We had a 9-8 record overall and 5-4 record in the conference. In the WVIAA Tournament we placed 4th, 3rd in small colleges. Also we came in second in the D. C. Metro Invitational Tournament with three girls named to the All- Tourney Team and one receiving honorable mention." Leading the team with .380 batting averages were pitcher Donna Miller, Berkeley Springs and Cheryl Roberts, Shepherd- Stown. Rightfielder Cindy Stewart, Emmittsburg, Md., lead the team with 19 RBI's and 26 stolen bases. First baseman Carol Taylor, Cross Junction, Va., lead the team with two home runs. She's the only player who will be graduating. Coach Brown commented, "We'll miss Carol, She's a great asset to the team, not only for her outstanding defensive play but for her leadership." Coach Brown continued, "In my opinion, our best all-around player was shortstop Susie Stocker, Martinsburg. She was a great asset to the team both offensively with a .350 batting average and defensively." Leading pitcher for the team was Trish Eghers, Falls Church Va. She pitched 58 innings, had 25 strike outs and a 3.50 Earned Run Average. Looking toward next season, Coach Brown said, "We need to work on our pitching. We walked too many players this season. I think our record will definitely improve next year as we will have the entire team back ex- cept for Carol Taylor so everyone will have a year's experience behind them."

Some of the women in our league taking lessons from Mr. Hamstead are or have been Judy Phalen, Lana Schultz, Jean Doyle and Dottle Gillwald. Scottie Marcus is taking lessons for the first time.

She has taken lessons consistently for two years, and the results are very evident in every aspect of her game. Kudos to Mr. Ham- stead and his students, especially Toni!
