Along with the six pins, the Blazers got points for four decisions and two forfeits.

By PAUL ROGERSON Shelton's second year poolmen emerged from last week's action with two close losses. The swimmers lost to Aberdeen 54-41 and to Sumner, 58-37. Wednesday's loss to Aberdeen was a heartbreaker as the Climbers actually won more events than the visiting Bobcats. Shelton's lack of depth gave the Cats enough seconds and thirds to take the meet. Junior Co-captain Jim Rogerson led the Highclimbers with eight points, finishing first in the individual medley and second in the butterfly. Jim Kimmerly, the Climbers senior Co-captain, captured first in the 50 yard freestyle and was on the winning 400 freestyle relay to total 6 3A points.
