'9 to 6 - SAT 9 to 5 Coming off what coach Terry Gregg termed "the best inter-squad game we've ever had" high school basketball gets underway for the Shelton basketball team with three games scheduled to be played this weekend. Friday night coach Gregg will take his team to the Jamboree in Olympia to play two games before heading to Central Kitsap on Saturday for a game that has been in past years a real rivalry. Commenting on the Central Kitsap game coach Gregg claims this game will be a real test of his team. C. K. ranked 8th in the pre-season polls, has six lettermen returning from last years squad which finished second last year in State AA competition. Shelton, according to coach Gregg, has a good balanced sco, ring attack with everyone capable of scoring, although if the intersquad game is any indication, rebounding may be a bit sporadic. Athletes participating in fall sports were honored Wednesday night at the Kiwanis Fall Sports Banquet held at Mountain View grade school. Tom Parry, head football coach at Central Washington State College was the guest speaker. Coach Parry congratulated the Shelton football team and spoke briefly of his not so successful season at Central. He also mentioned two former Shelton football players, Dave Meyer and Don Cox, who are currently playing for him. Coach Jack Stark spoke of his football team and his immense pride in them. He and his assistant coaches, Paul Johanson, Fred Aberhamsen, Mike Sims, Bill Brickert and Ran Ellis also announced the lettermen and award winner. The award winners were; Team Captain Tracy Armstrong, Inspirational to Neal White, best blocker to Bill Gray and Duane Makoviney, best tackler. Lettermen for this year include Mark Wittenberg, Bill Gray, Mike Sheetz, Tom Brigham, Neal White, Don Neth and Tracy Armstrong all three year lettermen. Two year lettermen include stands: By CAROLYN KERR Will education time ever cease? Maybe now we should call it time for learning. To prevent any criticism about my terminology I have decided to go directly to Mr. Webster - He can be so helpful. Before we tackle the basketball season, I felt something should be said about sportsmanship. Everyone says that this is the most important thing when it comes to any kind of sports, which definitely includes our BLAZER activities. You know how the saying goes; it doesn't matter whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game. That's all that really counts, according to what some people say. The truth of the matter is more like something Vince Lombardi said: Winning isn't the most important thing, it's the only thing. All right then so what is sportsmanship? Let us break it down by using Mr. Webster's words. During my investigation I found some very Interesting facts. SPORT can be defined as: "to show off; to amuse oneself (meaning frolic); to mock or ridicule something; to speak or act jestingly; or physical activity engaged in for pleasure." MAN can be defined as: "a human being; an adult male servant; one of the pieces with which various games (as chess) are played; to furnish with strength or powers of resistance; or to supply with men". SHIP can be defined as: "a large sea going boat; to place or receive on board a ship for transportation by water; to go or travel by ship; or to cause to be transported". Mr. Webster is so clever with his meanings of words - now all we have to do is put the pieces together, or at least try. From the foregoing we could define sportsmanship as one of the following: (1) A human show off on a large seagoing boat (basketball court?) (2) An adult male servant who amuses himself on board a ship (football field?) for transportation by water (3) To mock or ridicule one of the pieces (players, refs., etc.?) with which various games are played when traveling by ship (on a basketball court?) (4) To speak or act jestingly and to furnish with strength or powers of resistance while on Broken Glass Replaced Promptly Insurance Claims Handled Plate - Sheet * Thermopane Mirrors Shower & Tub Enclosures * Table Tops AlumMum Sash & Windows -- Screens -- Storm Doors FREE ESTIMATES- 2226 Olympic Nwy.

First year lettermen included Kevin Wilson, Per Nolan, Jack Carlson, Mike Nutt, Pat Davidson, Bob Fox, Barry Gesche, Ace Le Gault, Bob Rietze, Drew Eken, Wayne Alexander, Randy Stevens, Dan Morgan, Lyle Oiling, Steve Fox, Dave Bolender, Lenny Crume, Tony Molinero, Jay Le Gault and Roland Start. Tom Brigham was also honored for finishing in the top fifty in the lineman of the year award sponsored by the Gillette company. In Cross Country, Coach Jan Day introduced his league winning team. They include Rich James, Mark Lewis, Mike Hays, Tom Noreen, Randy Hoeard, Dan Deffinbaugh, Ken O'Dell, Vic Strickland and Paul Dwyer. Coach Day also announced that Rich James was named team captain and Dan Deffinbaugh received the inspirational award. In Girl's Tennis, Coach Ruth Willard introduced her varsity team, they were: Patty Barnett, Debbie Witcraft, Suzi Gruver, Val Sparks, Roxie Wilson and Barb Brigham. board ship (football field?) (5) Physical activity engaged in for pleasure by a supply of men (players or spectators?) which causes them to be transported (while on the football field or basketball court?) As you can see we are getting nowhere fast - if you can imagine that the ship we keep referring to is a football field or basketball court it should help, but it really doesn't. So what has any of this to do with sportmanship? Nothing really. But then the type of sportsmanship we see displayed can be described with some of the words we have just used; words like mock, ridicule, jest, etc. I'm not talking about the good-natured razzing that goes on between spectators and refs and sometimes between the players and refs; I'm referring to the unnecessary display of poor sportsmanship. One thing should be said; our young people in BLAZERville are good examples of the right kind of sportsmanship. Hopefully, we of the older generation can follow suit and learn from them. In all fairness to Mr. Webster I should tell you he defines sportsmanship as follows: "Conduct becoming to a sportsman (as fairness, courteous relations, and graceful acceptance of results)." It might be good to add he also defines a sportsman as: "A person living up to the ideals of sportsmanship; a companionable person; a person who is fair and generous and a good loser and a graceful winner".
