HIGHCLIMBER Tim Fredson fights for a rebound against a pair of Central Kitsap Cougars during Tuesday night's non-league game in Shelton gym, which the Climbers won 66-57. l orles By TIM FRODSHAM Basketball season got off to a running start for Mary M. Knight this year as the Knight Owls won two sucessive victories in the Wishkah Tournament. The first night of the tournament found M.M.K. and Quinault stepping it off on the basketball court. It was a nerve-wracking experience for Coach Getchman as the Owls squeaked by Quinault with a score of 38-36. Mike Sinclair scored the winning bucket m the last two seconds of the game. Ray Rothrock was high scorer with 16 points, and Mike Sinclair was second highest with 12. The second and final night, M.M.K. met Wishkah for the last and deciding game of the tournament. It was an easy victory for the Owls. The final score in the game was 66-37. In that game, Ray Rothrock was, top scorer with 14 points. Tim Trimble was close behind with 13 points. Mike Sinclair and Tim Frodsham each had 10. Coach Getchman summed up both games by stating that although the Owl's defense was good, probably the best in the league, the offense stunk.

Now who in the world could ever make a statement like that; especially before the Ninth Grade awards dinner. Anyone knows we just have to cover that phase of the football scene. This type of event was a first for me, and it proved interesting, entertaining, and educational; as well as being served a good meal. The most interesting part of the evening was discovering who all the BLAZERS were. You have seen them out on the football field week after week in full uniform; but they were only names and numbers. You were not only deceived by their size, but you had no idea what they really looked like. Now if they would do their thing -- block, tackle, run, kick, or throw; or even have their numbered jerseys .Trouble. with d,ay equ,pment? Your Standard Man, C. C. COLE & SONS, INC.

The final score of the contest was 66 to 57. Tom Brigham came in during the first quarter to spark the Climber team. Brigham scored 16 points in the first half, all but two points of it coming in the second quarter. The Climbers had a close ugar By JIM KNEELAND Two minutes of confusion and three technical fouls were the downfall of Shelton last Friday as it lost to Central Kitsap by a score of 76 to 74. The Climbers led the game nearly all the way, taking a 20 to l l lead after the first quarter At the half the Climber lead was 40 to 33. The-Cougars got the lead for the first time in the third quarter, but their lead was short-lived as the Climbers bounced back to take a 59 to 54 lead by the end of the third frame. In the first half of the fourth quarter, the Climbers bounded to a ten-point lead before Bill Bacon broke their string with a bucket. ru$ Shelton High School wrestlers defeated Montesano 45 to 9 and also took a second at the Port Angeles wrestling tournament. In the Montesano battle, Brooke Faxrell and Brad Stites both won by forfeit, Rick Schmidt decisioned his man, 6 to 3 in the 112 pound class, in the 1 1 9 pound class Mark Lewis decisioned his opponent 9 to 1. Elmer Smith won in a 5 to 1 decision over his man in the 126 pound class. Wayne Alexander was defeated by his Montesano grapler 10 to 1. In the 138 pound class, Nolan Straton was pinned by a Montesano wrestler. Dean Medcalf pinned his man in the 145 pound class. In the 155 pound class Lyle Oling lost a decision to his man. Chuck Hamstred pinned his man in the 185 pound class. Heavyweight Bill Gray pinned his opponent for the final Climber victory. At Port Angeles, the varsity squad took a second place. First place Shelton finishers were: at 119 pounds, Mark Lewis, at 132 pounds Wayne Alexander, at 145 pounds Dean Medcalf and heavyweight Bill Gray. In junior varsity wrestling, on, you still might have a chance of recognizing them. But this evening the BLAZERS were being honored instead of being part of the show. But, in spite of themselves, the boys proved entertaining. They each had to stand up, give their name and introduce the members of their family present. The boys for some reason broke up after each introduction. It seems our rugged, tough BLAZER machine is in reality a group of average teenage boys. They are all really quite human after all (and a nice bunch of guys to boot.) The main entertainment of the evening (not counting Coach Marquett's young son) was guest speaker JACK STARK, Head Coach for the HIGHCLIMBERS. Before I go any further, I must" admit I had my doubts about going to this affair - after all 1 was not a ninth glade parent and I was certainly not a member of the football team. I felt it was duty more than pleasure that brought me there. But COACH STARK erased any doubts I may have had. Besides being good at Hey, kids! Pick up that at the Friday & Saturday contest in the first frame with the lead changing hands several times as it did in the second quarter at the half Shelton went to the locker room with a one point edge and the score 37 to 36. The Climbers came out strong in the third and fourth quarter with all around scoring effort and good defense. At the end of the third quarter, Shelton found itself with a commanding 9-point lead. Fourth quarter action for Shelton consisted mainly of holding on to their lead. Scoring was even as no one made over one field goal in the period. Leading scorers from the field include; Tom Brigham with 18 points and two at the line, Ray Krumpols had 10 points from the field, Terry Knight made 8, Bill Bacon had 6 points, Rich Walker and Tim Fredson had 4 and Steve Sparks finished with two points. The Cougars, however, couldn't be stopped as they tied the game at 72-all. With the score tied, and a few seconds left, Rich Walker was called for a foul. Then, according to coach Terry Gregg, a technical foul was called on either Tim Fredson or Rich Walker. The reason he is not sure is because the referees didn't seem to be sure. A hurried conference between the officials was no help to Gregg. After conferring, they returned to the Shelton bench and told him to sit down and they would finish officiating the game. The technical foul, along with the original foul, set the stage for Central Kitsap to take a two-point lead, which they retained in the closing seconds to make the final 76 to 74. Shelton found itself at the game's end with three technical fouls, one each assessed against Tom Brigham, Tim Fredson and Rich Walker. Coach Gregg maintains "these will be the last we'll have this season." Tim Fredson was the leading scorer in the unsuccessful outing with 1 7 points, Bill Bacon grabbed 13 big points for the Climbers Ray Krumpols had 12 points, Terry Knight had 8, Tom Brigham had 8 points, Neal White had 6 points, Rich Walker had 5 and Steve Sparks grabbed a pair of points. Tim Sund of Central was high scorer for the game with 19 points. no Shelton is undefeated, beating Montesano 35 to 0 and by taking first at Port Angeles. First place J.V. finishers were: 126 pound Randy Howard, 132 pound Sonny Vercher, 138 pound Vernon Gonzoloz, 145 pound Bob Fox, 155 pound Steve Fox and 1 85 pound Gerg Radzykwycz. Dean Taylor and Mike Sheetz took second place. DEAN MEDCALF AND MARK LEWIS have been elected grapplers ofthe week by the Shelton High School wrestling team. Medcalf is a senior and two-year letterman for Shelton. So far this season he is 3-0. Mark Lewis, a junior, is also a letterman, and he too is 3-0 this season. his profession, he is also an excellent speaker; (and he's not even an ex-BLAZER). Naturally, he spoke about football and football players; but he directed his message straight to the boys. He stressed that it matters not who you are; what you have done in the past; or what size you happen to be. If you have enough desire and drive to put forth 110% in preparation for the game, you have just as much chance at playing as anyone else. He used ex-BLAZERS, now sophomores who did just that, as his examples. COACH STARK'S "talk" was very inspiring and I could probably rattle on forever, but I felt the above mentioned was such a beautiful invitation to our BLAZERS that it was worthy of mention. A lot of credit for the successful BLAZER football program must go to the excellence of BLAZER Head Coach HARLAN BUITENvELD and his able assistants, as ekpressed by Principal FLOYD JACKSON when he introduced the coaching staff. Assisting with the ninth grade team were COACHES MARQUETT and WILSON; on the eighth grade level were COACHES CRATER and KORTE; and last but not least COACH HARMIA, who directed the seventh graders. COACH MARQUETT was given the honor of announcing the winners of the team awards whichwere "almost" no surprise to me. All have been mentioned in this column before, except one, and I imagine I will never live that one down'. It just proves you spend more time watching the ball and the ball carriers and not the players that help make them look so good.
