| 0 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE - THURSDAY, AUGUST 1. mS NEWS andVIEWS ] By DON RENTCN A LOT OF SOFTBALL -- Fast pitch softball enthusiasts of Jefferson County and this section, certainly had over the past two weekends, plenty of softball games to watch as a total of 39 games were played in connection with the West Virginia Slate Fast-Pitch tournament staged here in Jefferson County, under the most capable direction of Tom Coffin, district director of the American Softball Association. The bulk of the action took place the weekend of August 5-6 when a total of 36 games were played within a matter of two days on four Jefferson County diamonds, one at the Leetown Park, one in Ranson and the two diamonds at Halltown. A total of 24 teams participated in the big sporting event, coming from many parts of West Virginia. And Director Coffin said, had the weatherman cooperated just a couple of hours longer, the entire tournament would have been completed. As it developed, however, the semi-finals and finfils had to be delayed a week and were not played until this past Sunday on the Leetown park diamond. In the tournament championship game, it was the Parkersburg Independents who came through in the stretch to defeat the Penn Avenue Sweet Shop of Fairmont, by a 6-0 score for the crown. Penn Avenue was able to keep in tournament play on the strength of the great pitching of Denny Kisner, who not only hurled a no-hit no- run game against Parkersburg, for a 1-0 victory, the first time the two teams met, but he had previously chalked up a no-hit and no-run game earlier in tournament play. The Parkersburg batsmen were undefeated in tournament play until last Saturday when Kisner stopped them cold. The most amazing thing about the entire tournament, Coffin said, was that in spite of all the rains which fell on Jefferson County before, during, and shortly after tournament play, only the semi-final and championship games had to be called because of rain and this necessitated bringing Parkersburg, Penn Avenue of Fair- merit and Kale Motors all the way to Jefferson County this past weekend for the final games. Parkersburg and some five other teams will represent West Virginia in the Regional Class-A playoffs to be staged in West Liberty, Ohio, in September. JEFFERSON HIGH PRESS DAY -- Following the format established last year, Jefferson High School has established Monday, August 21, as Press Day for our football program. Coaches and teams will be available for pictures, intervie%vs, etc., starting at 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. We found great success with this approach last year, and hope you will be able to take advantage of this occasion. PAENT-PUBLIC FOOTBALL CLINIC -- The Jefferson High School football staff and teams will conduct a short football clinic on Friday, AUg. 18, beginning at 6 p.m. The purpose of the clinic is to give, an opportunity for parents and interested public to become acquainted with the football program at Jefferson High School. BATTLE FOR TRACK CROWNS -- The battle for the track championships at the Hagerstown, Md., speedway, now appears to be going to go right down to the wire in both divisions of competition, with close races now existing in both the !ate model and challenger racers. Unofficial point totals as of Sunday, showed that Tom Peck, winner of the recent 100-lap Tri-State Championship, to be the top driver in the late model division, and Dave Wilt, of Charles Town, a three-time feature winner, leads in the challenger division. Wilt, who is also amondthe top racers in the challenger division at the Wixchester, Va., Speedway, recently passed Walter Hammond in the challenger division for the point lead. Wilt, as of Sunday, had 186 points to Hammond's 145, with Steve Knepp third with 128. FIRST CALL -- The first call went out this week from William "Bill" Lawrence, head coach of cross country at Jefferson High School, asking all candidates for the 1978 Jefferson High Cross Country team, to report to Jefferson High School on Monday, August 28, at 3 p.m. Coach Lawrence also stressed that all boys and-or girls planning, to tryout for the Jefferson squad, should get physical examinations before reporting for practice. The physical examination forms are available in the offices of the Director of Athletics offices at Jefferson High. n W.VA.ELECTRONICS Charles R. Scott Is New Cage Coach For Jefferson Board Makes Coaching Appointments Jefferson Cougars Charles R. "Charlie" Scott, an assistant basketball and football coach at Hedgesville High School in Berkeley County, has been named head basketball coach at Jefferson High School, replacing Tim Brinkley who resigned to assume the top cage job at West Virginia Teoh. Scott was chosen from a field of about 13 candidates, screened b,y school officials during the past several weeks. His appointment was approved by the Jefferson County School Board at its Monday night meeting. Scott will also assist in the football program and teach physical education. At the same time, the board named Meredith Polen, of Charles Town Junior High School, as Scott's assistant coach. Polen, who has been head jayvee coach at the junior high school for the past several years, will continue to teach at the junior high. Scott, contacted Tuesday after his appointment became official, said that "it is an honor to be chosen to head up what has become recognized throughout the state of West Virginia as an outstanding basketball program." Scott went on to say that he is looking forward to assuming a task that he says will require the full backing of the residents of Charles Town and Jefferson County, as well as the cooperation of the student body and complete dedication on the part of members of the basketball squad. Scott is a native of Dayton, Ohio, where he took part in football, basketball and baseball at Colonel White High School. He chose to attend Fairmont State at Fairmont, W. Va., where he was involved in the outstanding cage program under Coach Joe Retton. He received his AB in physical education from Fair- mont; and his Master's Degree in administration from West Virginia University. He became associated with Berkeley County schools in 1971, teaching social studies at North Junior High School, coaching basketball and assisting in football. In 1976, when the new Hedgesville High School opened, he was named to the faculty, and as an assistant to Basketball Head Coach Gilbert Miller and Football Head Coach John McCullough. He's known as a competent sports official, working the Eastern Panhandle area. He is married to the former Elizabeth Furgason, of Rivesville, W. Va., and they have two daughters, Amy Megan and Janna Elaine. * Scott, who currently resides the Sulphur Springs Road Inwood, said he will look for home in the Charles Town area hoping to move soon. The beard of education als( approved several, other coaching assignments. Richard Mills, a new ap- pointee, was chosen to head up the football program and teach physical education at Sbepherdstown Junior High School; and Terry Warren, a member of the Jefferson system for a half-dozen years, was appointed head football coach at Charles Town Junior High School. Superintendent of School Raymond Frazier said Tuesday there is still one Coaching vacancy to be filled, that of an assistant at Charles Town Junior High. That will be okayed, he said, at the next meeting of the school board Monday, Aug. 28. Dates "Set For efferson Open ALALLA&A&A Ir "V Nr ,qr qr ,Nr  -qr-qr r - q TENNIS STROKES BIDDY SMOOT . Ak.
