Charles Town High Principal Herbert Cottrill said if the board of education approves the adding of these two sports, he can not forsee any problems by the school in fielding a golf team, forsee any problems with respect to school fielding a golf team, since only a limited expense would be involved. But there could be with wrestling because of the expense that would be in- vqlved in securing the necessary ecluipment. This equipment could run into several thousand dollars.

Mrs. Carolyn Pestun Snares Big Golden Make First Contribution---A drive is on to provide an electric score- board for the Charles Town High School athletic field and the first contribution, a $500 one, was made Monday by the 1965 graduating class of the school. The above picture shows Charlie Conrad, who served as chairman of the ways and means committee of the 1965 Senior Club, presenting the cheek to .Harold (Zip) Lorenz (left) as Principal Cottrill looks on. Principal C0ttrill also stated it is hoped that some kind of a fresh man program can be started at least in football and basketball. With.the Charles Town Junior High School having developed, under head coach Harry Barker, a fine football and basketball pro. gram, and with the high school already having a junior varsity program to go along with the Varsity teams, the addition of freshman football and basketball would give both the Junior High and High Schools a fine and con- tinuing program in at least these two sports. Head football coach Kenny Sims, said this week that Loudoun County (Va.) High School of Lees Loudoun Valley High and Clarke County High, for home and home games with the Panthers. These teams will replace Williamsport (Md.) and Petersburg High on the Panther cage schedule. The fans are not being over looked in the changes and innovat ions in the school's athletic pro- gram, Cottrill said, as a drive has already been started to provide a modern electric scoreboard for the school stadium. And efforts are also being made to place an attractive cyclone wire fence and some shrubbery around the en- tire high school athletic field. It is hoped by school officials that funds necessary to defray High School. Considerable preliminary work has also been done on securing the fence for the school stadium such as the type, cost. etc., but nothing definite is ready for pub- lication on this project yet, other than it is expected to cost about $6,000 installed.
