Tim Brinkley Takes Head Coaching Post West Virginia Tech Tim Brinkley, above, who has successfully headed up the basketball program at Jefferson High School for the past four years, has resigned to accept the head coaching post at West Virginia Institute of Technology at Montgomery. The resignation was accepted Monday evening by the Jef- ferson County Board of Education. Brinkley assumed the head coaching post at Jefferson High in the Fall of 1974, and his tenure here has been a successful one. He has had but one losing season in the four-year period. Brinkley, who was an all- conference basketball and baseball player in the West Virginia Conference while he' was at Alderson-Broaddus College, came to Jefferson County from Roosevelt-Wilson High School in Harrison County. There he successfully coached basketball for three years and was named Harrison County "Coach of the Year" for two seasons. It has been rumored thal Brinkley was going to accept a post as assistant basketball coach at West Virginia Tech: and, when the man who wa: named bead coach turned down the position, Brinkley was im- mediately in line for the top spot.

On Ladles Day, July 13th, we had a Low Net Tournament. Ethlyn McDonald, who is coming on strong here in the middle of the season, was the winner with a net 74. Ina Mer- chant won the ball for Low Putts taking just 30 putts to make the circuit. On July 20th eight of us journeyed to Purcellville to play in the Loudoun County Ladies Invitational and we made a pretty good showing. Charlotte Gano's team had a net 18 under par for 4th place. I've seen 18 un- der par win many times. Nancy Ruth's team was 19 under par for third place and Biddy Smoot's team was 20 under par for second place. Twenty-two under was the winning score!!I Lucille Robertson, shooting a 39 on the front nine, was on the team that won the Low Gross with a best ball 76. This reporter won the Closest to the pin on the No. 5 par three hole. Martha Smith made her presence known by scoring two net eagles for her team. For ladies Day on July 20th, they had another Low Net Tournament. Lang Phillips was the winner with a net 73 and Ginny Nutzman won the Low  Putt contest. Lucille Robertson broke 40 for tlm first time, shooting a 39, on the front nine at Sleepy Hollow last week. Charlotte Gano had her best score ever on the same day. She had a 44 on the front nine. What is it about the 'front nine'? They must run out of steam. Chip-in Dept. None were reported to me but I did witness 3 chip-ins playing in a threesome with Barb Hooper and Steve Ruth. On No. 11, not Barb's favorite hole, she chipped in from 26 yards out for a par. Steve chipped in twice on the way to a 38. I would like to take this op- portunity to thank Barbara and Jay Stenger for the delightful entertainment they gave at the Opera House on Saturday. Jefferson County should be proud and thankful to have two such talented and generous people as residents. It was certainly an evening to remember. Swim Team ICaptures Narrowl Meet Victories The Hagerstown YMCA swim team downed host Frederick VFW by the narrow score of 312- 267 on July 18.

The winner of the district playoffs will then move into the state championship tournament to be staged in Petersburg, W. Va., next week. In winning the area four championship, the Potomac Regular Stars turned in an outstanding game, as Robhie Grey of the Harpers Ferry Twins, pitched a four-hitter at the Martinsburg Stars and fanned eight Martinsburg batters. The Potomac Stars got off to a very fast start against Mar- tinsburg, with two runs in the first frame on s base hit by Mitchell Jackson. a base hit by Jim Scott and a walk to Stacey Viands. with Rubble Grey then helping his own cause with a single to drive in the two runs. Then in the third frame; Potomac moved out to a 5-0 lead with three more runs. Mitchell collected his second hit of the game, a triple. Then Stacey Viands walked, stole second and Mike Walker singled Mitchell and Viands home. The third and final run of the inning and also of the game for Potomac. came when the Martinsburg catcher threw wild to second base.

He Brian Jones grounded out to of the Potomac Little League fought their way back from the opening round losers bracket for a second chance at the District 6 Little League championship, but Friday evening at Pikeside Park, they ran into the same road block as in their opening playoff game -- Martinsburg -- and the result again was the same. Martinsburg defeated the Potomac Stars for the second time in tournament play, this time by a 3-1 margin. The defeat for the Potomac Stars ended their post-season tournament play and sent Martinsburg into the state playoffs which begin in Mullens, W. Va., Tuesday af- ternoon. There will be five teams in the Mullens double elimination tournament action. The Martinsburg Stars used the same format Friday evening in edging the Potomac Stars as they did in the opening tour- nament playoff game -- low run- pitching and some timely hit- ring. About the only difference was the score which was 3-1 this time instead of 2-1. The pitcher for the Potomac Stars was also different. Gary Null, who hurled the opening game win for the Martinsburg Stars against Potomac Stars, turned in another outstanding per- formance Friday evening by fanning 11 Potomac batters and giving up only five hits.

" gave up four walks. Richie Chrisman, hurler for the Potomac Stars, also turned in a fine pitching exhibition, giving up but five hits, two of them by Anthony Russ and not walking a single Martinsburg batter. There were three critical errors made by Potomac, which opened the door for Martinsburg to score three unearned runs and win the ball game. Potomac kicked up some trouble for Gary Null in the top of the second they put two men on base with only one out. Buthe managed to work his way out of it without giving up a run. In the last half of the inning, Martinsburg did score a run when Rodney Twigg grounded to short, and was safe when Wes Milburn of the Potomac Stars was pulled off the bag. Through the first four innings of play the game was a 1-0 affair with neither side able to show much offense. Potomac then threatened in its half of the fifth when Grantham beat out a bunt and Tom Diehl singled to centerfield with only one out. Grantham and Diehl worked a double steal. Rut then retire the side. In the top of the sixth Mar- tinsburg pushed over two more runs to take a 3-0 lead. But the Potomac Stars, a determined bunch, managed to push over a run in the seventh frame when Chrisman drew a lead-off walk. Milburn singled and Grantbam then drew a walk to load the bases, but Chrisman made the mistake of trying to score on a short passed ball and he was out. Diehl then walked to load the bases. Tom Parker drove in the lone Potomac run with a long sacrifice fly. Noll then fanned Jones to cut off the Potomac rally. To get into the finals, Potomac, after losing to Mar- tinsburg, came roaring back to defeat Taylor County High's All- Stars Wednesday evening 8-2, and the South Branch Stars on Thursday evening by an 8-3 margin.
