12 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,19T8 Pictured above is the 1978 Jefferson High School jayvee squad, opening its season tonight at 7 o'clock at home against the tough Thomas-Johnson Jayvees, from Frederick, Maryland. This year's squad, coached by Bob Rizzo and Cbarlie Scott, is loaded with sophomores, thirty-one of them, bailed as the biggest turnout of tenth graders in many years and according to Varsity Head Coach Jim Kessel, a "good sign for football's future at Jefferson High." Coupr Jayvees Open Season Tonight vs. T J The Jefferson High School Junior Varsity, the Little Cougars, open their season tonight at 7 o'clock at the Jef- ferson +High stadium at Shenandoah Junction, facing the junior Patriots of Thomas Johnson High of Frederick, Md, As is the case with unknown quantities, it is impossible to suggest the outcome of this game, particularly because it is the first outing of the season for +beth hail clubs. However, one thing is for sure ... Jefferson Jayvee Coach Bob Rizzo and his newly-acquired assistant, Charlie Scott, cannot hide the pleasure they feel over having a 35-man roster; nor the fact that the roster shows a turnout of 31 sophomores with only four juniors. This bodes well for the future of Jefferson High football, as Varsity Head Coach Jim Kessel has already mentioned. Getting back to tonight's game against Thomas Johnson, Coach Rizzo said he'll be going with the run almost exclmively in this initial encounter, although he won't disdain the pass if needed. Offensive adjustments will be made as needed. On the other hand, he'll set up his defenses to stop the pass- oriented Patriots who will, he believes, come out throwing under a new coaching system. There Will be size on the Little Cougars... Tim Longerbeam, a defensive tackle at a mere 270; Ralph Dinges, an offensive Thoma00Johnson Host + To Jefferson Cougars Schoolboy Football Jefferson High's Cougars, who are spending practice sessions trying to iron out mechanical mistakes which cost them victory in their initial start last Friday, will tackle another tough foe this week. The Cougars will trek to Frederick, Md., to meet the Patriots of Thomas-Johnsonj High, at the TJ stadium at 8 o'clock Friday evening. While one can always count on Thomasdohnson to provide good competition, this may not be the year of the Patriot. They'll be operating under new head coach Drew Zwald, who hopes to put together a cohesive unit that will perform well before the season progresses too far. In the meantime, Jefferson Head Coach Jim Kessel, pleased with his defense, but hoping for continuity from his offense, has been drilling the Cougars long and hard all week long, following a 7 to 6 loss to Loudoun Valley. Jefferson came through the opener with a minimum of in- juries. The lone exception was Defensive End Bernie Boswell who suffered a jammed neck and spent several days in the hospital. He's out now, but when he'll return to action is problematical. The Cougars will continue to depend upon the running of Quarterback Scott Walker and Setbacks David Diehl and Tony Smith. Expect Walker to throw, primarily to his flanker, Raymond Hosby, who scored Jefferson's lone touchdown last week. As for TJ, starters returning include Tailback Kelvin Ran- dall, Tight End Mike Rinehard, Center Danny Main and Tackle Scott Zimmerman. Kessel and his staff watched Thomas Johnson in a controlled scrimmage against Damascus, Md., last week. And the con- sensus was, "look for TJ tol continue to run the football,'l going to the pass only in tight I situations. [ Elsewhere, Martinsburg High's Bulldogs, victorious in their opener against Keyser last' Friday, will travel to Cum- berland, Md., for a Cumberland Valley Athletic League contest with Allegany High's Campers l at Fort Hill Stadium Game time is 8 o'clock. Mnsselman High of Inwood, beaten 21 to 7 by Berkeley Springs last Friday, will play at home, hosting West Virginia Deaf School of Romney. The Applemen,partial victim of their own mistakes against Berkeley, are favored to post victory number one on the season. The Hedgesville High Eagles, who battled Broad Run, Va., to a scoreless deadlock last Satur -m day, will also be at home, taking on Francis Scott Key High of' Frederick, Md. It's the opener for the Marylanders, and they'll be in the role of an underdog to the Class Triple A Eagles. On the college front, it's Shepherd hosting Shippensburg, dealt with in detail elsewhere on these sport pages; and the West Virginia University Moun- taineers meeting Richmond at Mountaineer Field in Morgantown. Frederick Players+ Win Single00 Hagerstown Couple Win Doubles in Jeffmon Tennis Toumey It was almost an all-Maryland finish in the Fourth Annual Jefferson County Op tennis tournament staged last week, with a Frederick couple winning the men's and women's singles championship and a Hagerstown couple winning the men's doubles. , Kitty Thornton and Pare Pierce, both outstanding young Charles Town tennis players and former Jefferson High stars, salvaged the Women's Doubles crown for Charles Town and Jefferson County by defeating Sarah, Reusing and Olivia Reusing, hath of Hagerstown, by scores 6-3 and 6.4.

Playing in a foursome with Russell Miller, Lloyd (Junior) Jones and your scribe Pugh negotiated the par three 185-yard number 17 in magnificant fashion as he or-- chestrated a five wood right on target for an ace. , It was the first hole-in-one for the 62 year-old golf whiz+ whose jubilamt elation over the event infected all those who "were in proximity. 'Tve been trying for this all my life," shouted Pugh, "It's been a long time in coming. 1 thought I'd never get an ace. l've hit the flag on numerous tries, had the hall roll right to the flag many times, but today's hole-in- one has to be the biggest thlill I've had on the golf course." As soon as word spread throughout the course Pugh was inundated with well wishers and pats on the back. As is traditional, Pugh Went for a week's wagers buying beer for the+ delighted Sleepy Hollow members on hand. Meanwhile Oliver Kastle and Craig Kastle teamed up for a two stroke victory in the Father Son,affair, turning in a net 141, which was two strokes better than the Austin-Johnny Myatt duo 143. Three more strokes back were Phil and Billy Boggs ' at 146, tied with Bill and Steve Roth for third place honors. John and Chet Hines' 147 took fourth place honors. An Eagle on the number 10 hole by Craig Kastle was the deciding blow for the Kastle forces. Hitting a booming drive to Start the back nine, the younger Kastle used a wedge from 85 yards out, holed the shot it hat proved the winning margin after 18 holes. It marked the fWst time that young Kastle broke 80 i at the local course.who posted 40- 38-78 for a net 63. Meanwhile Oliver Kastle was 48-43-91 for a net 78. Complete Fa(her-son scores: follow: Oliver-Craig Kastle 141; Austin-John Myatt 143; Phil, Billie Boggs 146; Bill-Steve Roth 146; Bill-Keith Kave 148; Jim. Don Dennison 148; Charles- Frank Slusher 148; Carl.Bi, Up front defensively, it will be Causer and Brannon at the tackles; while the noseguard will be Robinson. These are the probable starters, says Coach Rizzo, but a lot more will see action. "The objective," says Rizzo, "is to ee that every member of the [uad gets an opportunity to Dlay."
