It's a challenge to see if I can help them im- prove," she said in her Southern Virginia accent. "I don't care if a horse runs on the front end or comes from behind, you just have to ride a horse to its way of running," she said when questioned whether she prefers riding front-runners, Or horses that come from off the pace. ,,-Clifford "Buck" Gray, Jr., gave Charlotte her break locally and since then she has picked up several other outfits. She recently took on the services of agent Earl Loughborough to handle booking her mounts. Ms.,VanPelt feels' female riders are given more of a chance here than in Florida, "They don't like girl riders in Florida and its hard to get mounts," she stated. "Here most of the trainers are pretty fair and its not so bad picking Up mounts." The 26-year-old rider is a bard worker and will get on as many as 15 horses in the vQorning but looks at it as part of the job. "If you want to ride horses the trainers expect you to get on them so you know them and that's what airy to do," she said while preparing to take out another horse. Shepherd's Latest lhsketball Recruit Showing Promise SHEPHERDSTOWN -- Head basketball coach Bob Starkey has already gotten a good look at his prospective team for this winter through several informal workouts and conditioning drills. The Shepherd mentor has singled out the progress of Bruce Davis as "promising." Davis, a 6-5 prospective center from Charleston, W.Va., is a highly touted freshman that Starkey was able to sign before school started. Davis is also the first basketball player from the Kanawha Valley to attend Shepherd. Starkey points out, "If his college progress continues at the rate of his high school progress, he should figure heavily into the future ,plans of Shepherd College's basketball program." Davis has spent countless hours practicing and working on his inside game at the Shepherd ELECT C.B.

RAMS ARE TYPICAL OPPORTUI,,.STIC SELVES -- Two weeks ago Shepherd converted, two Glenville State fumbles into points, and last week at West Liberty the Rams grabbed two Hilltopper passes and converted both in- terceptions into TD's. As a direct result of op- ponent turnovers, the Rams have scored 23 points in three games. WARFIELD NEARING 3,000 YARD RUSHING MARK -- Shepherd's All-American fullback Gregg Warfield is nearing his 3,000 yard I career rushing mark. After three seasons as a starter and three games in 1978, Warfield's career rushing total is 2804 yards, leaving him 196 yards from the goal. HOPES TO REGAIN CIVITAN BOWL TRADITION -- Shepherd will be trying to regain its tradition of winning the Civitan Bowl this Saturday when the Rams host Bluefield State at 8 p.m. in Martinsburg. Shepherd is 10-3 in Civitan Bowl action during the past 13 years, coming off a loss to a undefeated Conccrd in 1977. WINS FOUR RACES TO TAKE JOCKEY LEAD- Jockey William R. Lewis, Jr. capped off a four-winner night Saturday night by cap- turing the Charles F. Funk Memorial with John D. McKee's Inviting Legs at The Charles Town Races. Lewis started his big evening in the sixth race with Robert Rawlings' Get Around's Buddy. He came right back in the seventh race with J.A. Russmisell's Free Roll. After winning the Funk Stakes in the ninth event Lewis closed out the night with Allen Burdette's Saturday Hero in the tenth. The four victories gives Lewis eight wins through the first 10 nights of the Fall Meet, one more than Troy Roberts, who is in second place. MERCER LEADS TRAINERS -- Henry P. Mercer, with one victory on Saturday night's card leads the trainers with seven winners. Robert Rawlings, who also picked up a win Saturday night, is second with five victories. Gerald Bast, Jr. is third with four winners and has started only seven horses. Pat Fischer tied with Charles Woodson and James Marshall, Jr. for fourth with three wins each. fieldhouse according to Starkey. And it seems to be paying off. His desire to improve his game fits right into Starkey's mold of Ram basketball players. "He looks like the type of player that the Shepherd program has succeeded on. They don't have exceptional talent, but they are willing to work bard and give us maximum production," Starkey em- phasizes. Davis is a product of Charleston High School, where he was coached by LOU Romano. Davis was used as a front-court player with the responsibility of rebounding and being a definite presence under the boards. Starkey plans to utilize Davis in the same manner by posting him "with his back to the basket." The Rams open their season Nov. 20 against visiting Penn State (Capitol Campus). LOUDOUN (From Page 12) Cumberland, Md., 14 to 7. Martinsburg took a 7 to 0 lead late in the second quarter, when Grog Alhright spurted over from the six and then kicked the extra point. The Bulldogs held that edge until the fourth stanza when a double reverse set up a Fort Hill touchdown with Sen- tinal Quarterback number three, Robert Younger, going over on a sneak. The game-ended, 7 to 7. Fort Hill got possession of the ball in the overtime and promptly scored on four plays. Mar- tinsburg's turn saw Kevin Jenkins barrel to the half-yard line on the first play, then Bulldog chances turned to ashes when they lost the handle on the football and Fort Hill recGvered. Martinsburg is now 2 and 2; Fort Hill remains unbeatenl Even the price is beautiful When Better hnn Pods Are hut, Fox Will IkAd Titan Saturday afternoon, Hedgesville went down to its third consecutive loss of the season, beaten 28 to 12 by Williamsport in a Bi-State Conference contest. Hedgesville's scoring came on aerials of 60 and 21 yards, thrown by Quarterback Bob Sowell to Grog McPeters. Hedgesville is now 0-3-I; Williamsport was posting its first victory of the year. SHEPHERD (From Page 12) yards rushing, and intercepted two passes to set up touchdowns, resulting in a 19-7 Shepherd victory. The win boosted the Rams' to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the West Virginia Conference, and with six nationally-ranked teams losing over the weekend, Shepherd could move up from its position of tied for 19th in the NMA poll. I The Hilltoppers, noted for their wide open attack, didn't waste any time in testing Shepherd's secondary. The first time they had the ball, quar- terback Chuck Hoose tried two unsuccessful running plays and then fired a 55 yard pass to tight end Jeff Herndon to set up the first score. With possession on the Rams' 14, Hdose passed to receiver Ted Layni for his team's only touch- down. Herndon's kick gave WL a quick 7-0 lead with 10:11 remaining in the first quarter. Shepherd retaliated in the second period with a one yard touchdown run by fullback Gregg Warfield and a five yard score on a pitchout to halfback Ken Russell.. The Rams' first TD was set up when Nate Johnson intercepted a Hilltopper pass and returned it to the West Liberty 10, and their second touchdown entailed a 68 yard drive which took II plays, giving them a 12-7 halftime lead after beth PAT attempts failed. In the second half, Shepherd's defense dominated play, allowed West Liberty only four yards rushing. HilRopper signal caller Chuck Hoose found himself scrambling most of the time, being sacked seven times during the day, negating what little rushing yardage run- ningback Tim Cortazzo had accumulated. Linebacker Bruce Widdow,, and end Larry Salley led the Shepherd pass rush with two QB sacks each. Linebacker DuWayne Gaddy and nose.guard Ken BoDe also bad a quar- terback sack each. Mter a scoreless third period, Shepherd got its final score when defensive back Eric Hofstetter picked off a deflected Hoose pass, giving the Rams possession on the West Liberty 29. Quarterback Stockton Wright elected to keep the football for a five yard run on the option play, scoring with 12:36 remaining. Daryl Grave's kick assured Shepherd of its third consecutive win. Warfield led all rushers in the game with 62 yards on 22 carries. Freshman punter Ken BoDe was called on nine times and he averaged 44 yards per punt, which should place him among national collegiate punting leaders this week. The loss dropped West Liberty to 0-3 after previous defeats by powerful Clarion State and undefeated W.Va. Tech. , Yomptm CHARLESTON -- Agriculture Commissioner Gus R. Douglass announced that Donald Leicht of Glengary displayed the largest apple in the state "Big Vegetable" contest held in conjunction with the Fourth Biennial Food and Agriculture Exhibition at the Charleston Civic Center September 7-9.
