Johnson's score turned out to be the only one of the night. So great was the pressure in Martinsburg's end of the field that the Bulldogs took only four shots in the game. Jefferson was credited with 18 shots. With Johnson, Nicole Brown, Lindsay Edwards, Beth Walsh, Durbin, and Amy Edwards con- tinually controlling the ball in the Martinsburg end, the harried Bulldogs were constantly pres- sured to keep away from the straight-on, unattended shot. And they managed to stay away from the high percentage kick after Johnson's goal. Erin Bradley, Johnson and Russell each scored twice against North Marion. Durbin, Lind~ay Edwards, Walsh, and Brown had the four other goals. Russell and Durbin each was credited with two assists and Amy Edwards the other assist the Cou- gars recorded. So dominant was Jefferson that North Marion never attempted a shot on goal. The Jefferson reserves saw plenty of playing time in the sec- ond half. Three goals in final 2:35 of the third period left the streaking Cougars with an increasing lead of 8-0. Leah Taylor's goal was the last for the Cougars. North Marion closed its season with an 8-10-2 record. Most of the Jefferson players have recovered from a spate of late-season injuries, but Johnson continues to play with a cast on her arm that runs from her elbow to her wrist and has to be covered with a wrapping on top of that in order to be allowed to play. It's the start of the regional girls cross country meet. The Jefferson team is grouped at the right as they break away from the starting line. The Cougars won the regional for the By Bob Madison An old adage says that "Hard work is its own reward," but it is always nice to see diligence and a solid work ethic rewarded in other ways. And that was the case last Thursday when the Jefferson girls cross country team won its region meet and was rewarded with a trip to Saturday's state meet in Williamstown. For the first time in school his- tory the Cougars had 10 runners, a goodly number that made for some internal competition, what with only the first five places counting in any meet and with only seven runners being able to participate in the regional run at the Poor House Road course. Jefferson's rivals numbered four for the 3.1 mile run on a raw, wintry day where the wind blew hard into the runner's faces on several lengthy portions of the hilly course. Hampshire, Keyser, Martins- burg and Hedgesville comprised the field. And Hampshire had the Davis twins, sophomore racers who have finished one-two in ev- ery meet they've attempted this year. Susan and Jennifer Davis didn't disappoint, finishing first and second once more, putting added pressure on the Cougar girls to run the same or better than they had all year. The Jefferson boys soccer team, shown here earlier in the season, lost a 1-0 decision to Martinsburg in the sectional fi- nal. The Cougars finished the season at H-5-3 and had beaten Hedgesville in the first game of the local tournament. first time in school history and will run in the state meet in Williamstown on Saturday. Despite the frigid tempera- tures and sometimes cantanker- ous wind, the Cougars, led by se- nior Michelle Van Horn's third- place trip, placed five runners in the top 12 and rode off to Williamstown by topping Hamp- shire by 15 points. Also scoring for Jefferson were Leslie Lawson (sixth), Laurie Rendeiro (eighth), Jill Morton (llth), and Jiketta Underwood (12th). Not counting amongst the team's scorers, but placing many Hampshire runners behind them and thus aiding in the team win were Rebekah Muck (13th) and Rebecca Myers (15th). After the Davis twins, Hampshire's best finish was a 14th, thus enabling the hard- training Cougars to capture the school's first cross country title of any variety - girls or boys, sec- tional, regional, or state. The Jefferson's boys team had six entrants, what with an injury to Matthew Groen. Jeff Gessler was their best individual finisher, coming home 12th after running a strong tactical race in which he was in the top five for more than half the race. The first five finish- ers would go to the state meet re- gardless of how their team did. Hampshire won the boys side, having the first, second, and fourth place runners. With six teams fielding full units of at least five runners, Hedgesville also sends its team to Williamstown by coming in second. But by nightfall, which came quickly after the boys Class AAA race was completed, the Jefferson girls were still quietly celebrating their victory, a product of hard work, enough runners, and enough talent to carry it to the pinnacle of this region.
