SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1978 Shepherd Opening Season With Shippensburg Rams, Entertaining High Hopes, Super Season and Bowl The Shepherd College Ram football team opens its season Saturday afternoon at 1:30 at the Shepherd College stadium in Shepherdstown, hosting the Red Raiders of Shippensburg, (Pa.) State College, a team whict could represent one of the toughest, if not the toughest test of the Rams' ten-game season. It is not a conference game nor will it have any great bearing on possible national rankings, for Shepherd is in Division 1 of the NAIA while Shippensburg is a member of Division 2 of the NCAA. But it will provide an insight into the relative strength of a Slepherd squad that is being tabbed as one that "can go all the way." By "all the way," Coach Walter Barr and his cohorts are talking about a West Virginia Intercollegiate Conference Title and a first-ever trip to the NAIA Division I playoffs. There's good reason for this attitude. The attention began last Spring when, at practice sessions, pro scouts decided to take a good look at Ram stalwarts among the 38 retur- nees (including 22 lettermen and 18 starters). Coach Barr likes power, and he'sgot a lot of that returning... 10 of 12 offensive starters . . . including both of last year's alternating quarterbacks, Stocton Wright and Ken Belchic : Wright the runner, Belchic the passer when needed. In the backfield, it's Gregg Warfield and Wayne Wilson, joined by big Jim Pope, a 255- pound sophomore, or Kenney Russell. Up front, the Ram staff will go with Dan Drew and Gary Sullivan at guards; Dan Owings and Mike Shamblin at the tackles; Barry Lattimer and Dave Neill at the ends; and Charles Pierce at center. As for Shepherd's kicking game, Dave Neill and Gary Sherman are vying for the punting assignment, while Ken BoDe and Daryl Grove have been competing for the place kicking duties. Defensively, Bruce Widdows will be back at linebacker, joined by DuWayne Gaddy or possibly Bone. Noseguard duties will be handled by Larry Jehle; Tim Cook and Mike Essis will be at tackle., the end positions to Larry Salley and John Forbes. In the defensive backfield, it will be Nate Johnson, Steve Carey, Mike Falkeahan and Steve Nolan. The only absentee is Sam Stanton, injured in spring practice. Turning to Saturday for the Rams, Shippensburg, the Raiders,will be trotting onto the field with no less than 29 let- termen from last year's 64 season and a Pennsylvania Conference title under the guidance of Joe Mark, who, in two seasons has led them to 14 wins, 6 losses and one tie. Three losses last year were by a total of seven points. The visitors will be led by Tailback Fred Glascoe, who piled up 771 yards last season. He'll be aided and abetted by Fullback Jim Abraham, another power runner. And Quarterback Scott Mason is wont to throw to a couple of good receivers in Steve Long and T.J. Smith. Defensively, the Red Raider,, depend a great deal on left End John Werts and Left Tackle Irwin Elman, while Steve Cramer will anchor the secondary. Lucille Robertson Defeats Nancy Roth, Defending Champ For Sleepy Hollow Championship The semi-finals and the finals of the Sleepy Hollow Ladies Flight Tournament have been completed. In the first flight final round Lang Philips emerged the winner over Ginny Nutzman who, unfortunately, time caught up with and Ginny and Lou had to leave on their month and a half vacation, before the match could be played. Congratulations to you Lang. In the Championship flight semi-finals Dottle Gillwald had a hot round and gave Lucille Robertson quite a tussle, however, Lucille battled the 'putting yips' and was the winner. In the other semi-final Margie Brown's usual steady putter let her down and this reporter was the winner of that round. Now to the Championship Flight with Lucille Robertson, the defending champion versus Nancy Roth. This is a 36 hole match played over two days. The first 18 holes was a terrific match with either Lucille plus one or Nancy plus one through the whole match and on the 18th hole we were dead even going into the next 18. Well, the next 18 was a slightly different game. I lost two of the first three holes and then won the next two to bring the match even again and from there on it was all down hill for Nancy Roth. Lucille Robertson was the winner and still the Sleepy Hollow Ladles Champion. LuciUe's husband, Mike, and tworchildren, Christie and Todd, were on the hill watching the match. Mike's only comment was, "My nerves just can't take the pressure." Cngratulatins' LuciUe, you're quite a golfer. For Ladies Day on August 24 we had a LOw Net tournament. Nancy Roth was the winner with a net 70. Dottle Gillwald won the ball for LOw Putts with 31. On August 31st the tournament for Ladies Day was a Blind Partner match. The team of Ruby Propst and Lucille Robertson had the winning combination with a net 157. Charlotte Gano had just 29 putts. In our chip-in Dept. - Dottle Gillwald chipped in on No. 4 for a birdie. Nancy Roth chipped in on No. 16 for an eagle. The only comment I got from the man of the house was "anybody can make an eagle from the lady's reef' Congratulations to Jake Pugh on his hole-in-one on No. 17. I understand this was his first lever. I'll bet his classic remark was "that's one putt I don't have :to worry about." 1978 SHEPHERD FOOTBALL SQUAD EXPECTED TO ENJOY YEAR OF GREAT SUCCESS; SOUNDS OF "A BOWL IS OUR GOAL" ARE RINGING THROUGHOUT THE,SCHOOL CAMPUS 1978 will prove to be a year of success for the Shepherd College football team.

Jefferson High Loses Loudoun County; Martinsburg And Berkeley Are Winners The scholastic grid season opened last week-end, and when the action was over Jefferson High was a loser: Martinsburg and Berkeley Springs picked up victories: Musselman was throttled, and Hedgesville played to a scoreless tie. In the game closest home, Jefferson's Cougars played erratic football and lost to the Vikings of Loudoun Valley, Va., 7 to 6, before a fair home crowd at Shenandoah Junction. Cougar mistakes paved the way for the Loudonn Valley victory. In the very first quarter, a bad pass from center sailed over Punter Todd Henshaw's head and rolled dead on the Jefferson 33 yard line in Viking possession. Ten plays later Keith Sims smashed over from the one yard line, then converted the extra point and Loudoun Valley led 7 to 0. The remainder of the first half was scoreless; but Jefferson, coming out with victory in mind after a half-time talk from Coach Jim Kessel, made it close in the third quarter. Mter an exchange of punts, Jefferson began to move from the Loudoun Valley 43. After reaching the 26 yard line, Quarterback Scott Walker went Halfback Dave Cole, who picked up 74 yards in ten tries, scored the other two touch- downs, one on an 11 yard run the other from 15 yards out. Musselman High School of Imvood, oubled with first game mistakes as was Jefferson, was beaten in its initial outing Friday evening. The Applemen were topped 21 to 7, by Berkeley Springs High's Indians. Berkeley Springs scored early on Rick Everett's 4l yard reverse; then added another touchdown on their second series of offensive plays when Mark Wilson took a pitch-out and scored from one yard out. Musselman battled back in the third period, when Scott Lam- bert returned an intercepted pass to the Berkeley Springs 7, then, after three line plays, scooted over from the two. The final Berkeley Springs score came when Quarterback Craig Potter sneaked over from the two yard line for a six-pointer. Hedgesville High's Eagles, who didn't open their season until Saturday, battled to 0 to 0 tie with Broad Run, Virginia. But the John McCullough- coached Eagles came closer to winning than did their Virginia opponents. The defense controlled the start to finisl. However, a 45- yard Hedgesville scoring play in the second quarter.., a Bobby Sowell to Greg McPeters pass.. was nullified by a penalty. And a third quarter drive by the Eagles fizzled at. the goal line. Turf Club To Return December 16. There will be no racing at Charles Town on Monday nights and Thanksgiving Night, November 23.
