Earle was also one of the 1965-66 Panther Cage team's leading scorers, with a 12.3 average over a schedule of regular season aid tournament competition. And on the gridiron last season, he was one of the major reasons, the Pan er gridmen finished the sea son with a fine 7-3 record. Marry Blackford and Oscar Wilt were the stars of the past week among the men golfers at the Sleepy Hollow Golf and County Club and it'was Steven Evans who took the lead in the battle among the junior golfers. Evans continu- ed his fine play by winning the first junior golfing event of the 1966 season, recording rounds of 82-13 for a net score of 69. Rick Blackford's 85-9 and 76 score was good enough for second place in the Junior play and Skip- py Whitmore's 90.12 for a 78 score was the third best. The Golf Committee of the Sleepy Hollow Club organized a two-man and one woman best two balls out of three full handicap team event as a special for Mem- orial Day. And a total of ten teams participated in the fun-fill- ed event. Marty Blackford fired his best round of golf of the eyar, a 76, to lead his team to a first place tie in the event. Included in Marty's fine round of play were five bird ies. And the birdies he registered on the ninth and 18 th holes were extra special since they won for Marty the special "Jackpot" prize. Prize winners in this event were: the team of Marry Black- ford, Bill Benton and Helen Wright, had a score of 133; the team of Walter Glenn, Connie Hamann and Edna Clendening, also came in with a 133 total. The next highest scoring team was that comprised of Steve Smith, Meredith L. Polen and Nancy Roth, who shot a 135.

The latest Millville vii:tory came Tuesday evening over the Bakerton team who until Tuesday had a 2-0 record. And it was a fairly easy win for the Millville team by a 13-1 score. In Satur- day's scheduled action" only one game was played because of the rain and the decision in that one went to Millille by a 4-2 score over the Shepherdstown Angles. The Harpers Ferry - Sharpsburg and Bakerton - Shepherdstown Yanks 'game had to be called be- cause of rain. In the eague s opening games played May 24 Shepherdstown Yankees cored a 64 victory over ttarpers Ferry; 'Millville Leetown'l and Bakerton Sharpsburg 7. Although the seasonal and pos~-season record of the Charles Town High track and reid team shows only one victory and two ties as agafnst three defeats, Coach Bill Jordan had two fine relay teams which he doesn't hesitate to brag about the half dozen boys who made up these two teams as shown above: (left to right)--Scott Whitmore. Ron Rissler, Earle Johnson. Arthur Dodson, John Rissler. and John Waiters. The mile relay team comprised of Ron Rlssler and Eearle Johnson, Went through five meets unbeaten, but they ran into the fastest competition in years in the State meet and while they ran the mile in three minutes and 39.4 seconds to set a new Charles Town High record, the time was not even fast enough for them to figure in the scoring in the State meet, which saw a host of records fall this year. Making up the two-mile relayteam this see n were Scott Whitmore. John Waiters. Earle Johnson and Ron Rissler who turned in some fine performances for the Panthers.
