Of these free throw shooting, added up to a the Trojans made good 31. 67-55 prp basketball triumph for One of the worst mistakes the visiting Fife in Shelton gym Sat- Climbers made was that they urday night. Figures tell the story clearly.

It should have been anybody else. Strojan made good 18 of 21 op- portunities at the free throw line. He was agonizingly deadly. WITHOUT SCORING a single field goal in the second half Stro- jan made 12 points, on 13 foul shots. For the entire game he wound up with 30 points, after getting six field goals and six foul shots in the first half. In contrast, the Trojans com- mitted only 17 fouls one a tech- nical} which gave the Climbers 22 free throws, 11 of which they converted. Thus they were out- scored ,'it the foul line 31 to 11, a 20-point difference that wasn't offset bv a 44 to 36 superiority from field goals.

LARRY POWELL, his head en- .sconsced in a boxer's protective helmet, returned to the Climber lineup for the first time since the opening game and promptly got himself into serious foul trouble. With 4:52 of the second quarter still to go he had his fourth per- sonal, and although he managed to last out the game in spite of that burden, his effectiveness on defense and rebounding was sev- erely handicapped for two-thirds of the game. Ron Orr. another prime reboun- der for the Climbers. picked up his fourth foul with only 40 sec- onds of the third quarter gone and was likewise under wraps for half the game. He eventually fouled out with 4:20 left in the fourth period and was followed by Bob Walker with 1:02 left and Jim Richards with 10 seconds to go. :Bob Towle was the other Climber with four fouls. Fife lost no players from fouls, had only one with the burden of four. THE SECOND quarter did the Climbers in. After pldying the Trojans to an 11-11 standstill in the first period, the Climber de- fense, with Powell strapped by his 4h personal foul, sagged badly and the -visitors racked up eight field goals and nine foul shots for a 25 point production for the per- iod. Shelton equalled its first quarter output with 11. but found itself going to the dressing room at the half trailing by 36-22. As the third session opened the Climbers looked like they might make a ball game of it. With Scott Swisher and Orr each con- tributing three field goals, and Bob Walker one. the Climbers slashed Fife's margin to six points at two places, 37-31 and 39-33, but the Trojans regained their poise and pulled away to regain their 14 point margin as the quarter ended. 53-39. FOR MOST of the inal round the two clubs traded baskets, the margin alternating at 1.2 to 14 points, until Powell put home a pair of field goals which knocked it down to eight with 1:53 left, 61-53. But the issue had been de- cided by that late date and Dan Olson's basket with less than a minute left was the only other Climber score. The Climbers are idle now for the rest of the holidays, resum- ing action Jan 3 when they travel to South Kitsap to open the Olym- pic league schedule.

STEELHEAD PLAY IS LIGHT Consistent rains knocked some of the local waters a bit out o shape during the past few days and steelhead fishing, as a conse- quence, was on the light side. Dave Clark was the most suc- cessful, taking three fish on two days. Thursday he fished both the Goldsborough and Skokomish. tak- ing a 7-pounder in the former. a 61/-pounder in the lattcr, after having touched the Skok for a 6/-pounder the previous day. Lew Systma had a pair on a single trip to the Skok last \\;ed- nesday, 7b and 6% by weight, and Harry Greenwood hit the Nis- qually lor a pair at 4-0 and 5, the same day. This was also the date on which Joseph Evers pick- ed a 6-0 out of the Skok. On Saturday Charles Perrine nicked the Hamlna'Hamma for a double at 7 and 5cA and Norm Ferry plucked a 5-0 from the Che- halls.

View School, PREPP'S REXALL STORE Shellon-Mason County Journal I In Their College Cage Capers 5 EI-CLIIIlBERS DOING WELL Former Highclimber hoopmen who have gone on to better things in the casaba sport are doing nicely at their chosen sites of cage capers. There are five currently active in college play, all of whom were teammates under Coach Jerry Vcrmillion's tutelage four years back. The coach's own brother, Greg, probably deserves the duke as do- ing best. at this writing. With the major college status which Seat- tle University ehjoys, Greg is in the fastest company, presumably. As of Sunday, as this is written, Seattle U had rolled up six victor- ies without defeat and Grog, a senior forward, was tied as lead- ing Chieftain scorer with his 101 points, just short of a 17-point average. (He was the subject of a flattering write-up in the Seat- tle Times sports section Sunday). In two of the five games he was Seattle's top scorer, with 27 points against Idaho State and 20 against St. Mary's. Although this is an unfamiliar achievement for him in college, it was fairly com- mon for him in high school as he led his Highclimber club in scoring Bulldogs Still Looking For I st Hoop Victory BELFAIR North Mason's Bull- dogs were still looking for their first success of the 1963-64 basket- ball season after suffering a 52- 41 defeat at the hands of Quilcene in the Bulldog gym Friday night. Quilcene hurdled to victory on a 20-point third quarter outburst in handing the Bulldogs their fifth straight setback. In that period North Mason countered with only three points, although outscoring the winners in the other three per- iods. OUTDOORS IN MASON COUNTY ber of sahnon being caught by spors fishing.

HURRICANE RIDGE OPEN THROUGH HOLIDAYS The Hurrican Ridge winter use area in Olympic National Park will be open Dec. 21 through Jan, 1 (except Christmas Day), al- though weather conditions may make it impractical to maintain an open road to the area at times, Supt. John E. Doerr announced last week. After the first of the year plans are to have the area open and all facilities operating on 2-day week- ends through Sunday, March _29. After March snow Conditions are normally not favorable for skiing. It is planned to have the area open for weekend travel through- out April. Date for having Hur- ricane Ridge open daily for early I spring travel will depend on wea- ther conditions. when it finished second in the Central league in 1960. ON OF HIS junior teammates on that team was Jerry Bloom- field, now a sophomore playing for brother Jerry's St. Martins College varsity. Bloomfield has worked himself into a starting guard berth with double-digit scoring contri- butions and some top-quality de- fensive play in the past three or four games. St. Martins currently sports a 2-6 mark. will play Cen- tral Washington in the Shelton gym this coming Saturday night. Another junior on that 1960 Highclimber team was Laurie Somers, who is perscnt!y a junior at the Coast Guard Academy in far off New London, Connecticut. Home for a brief Christmas visit during a short lull in the CG schedule, Laurie said his club cur- rently holds a 2-3 mark and he is second leading individual scorer with a 15.8 average per game. LAURIE FLEW IN Saturday night and will be at his Grape- view home until the day after New Years. He said the Coast Guard Academy plays an independent schedule against small New Eng- land colleges and some service teams. Two sophomores who played B team ball for the Highclimbers in 1960. then teammed with Somers and Bloomfield on the Seamount league co-championship club or 1961, were Corky Peterson and Wayne Carlson. Corky now is a sophomore at Centralia Junior Col- lege, where he has helped the Trailblazers to a 6-1 record at this date with his 20.5 average, sec- ond high on the squad to his own roommate, Mike Smith, who is hitting ior 21 per game. Wayne is a sophomore now 'at University of Puget Sound. where he is doing short-term relief duty with considerable distinction. The frail, lanky ex-Climber is scoring well in his brief stints on the floor but hasn't had any starting assignments yet. Owletles Open Season With Impressive Wins I In Girls Basketball ]VfATLOQK The Owlettes suc- cessfully opened their 63-64 sea- on by defeating Elma. Winning their first contest by a narrow margin. 31 to 28. they came back I overwhelmingly the following week. leaving no doubt as to the master of the two teams with a lopsided score of 56 w 34. This year the feminine hoop- sters have a smooth working or- ganization. Plenty of rebounding skill is the result of having the pretty, blonde, and graceful Owen twins under the baskets. Their ability is supplemented by Don- na Owen, an offensive speedster; Jackie Landis. an apparently coo] headed gal on the court, along with two other talented individ- uals who can score effectively, Gloria Avery and Kristine Gra- ham. Sandy Miller plays defense like a chain reaction and Nancy Stodden is no slouch. Completing the line-up and adding depth to the team are Mae Coburn. Lor- etta Beerbower. Barbara Spald- ing, and Shyli Janson. . As shown by the abundance of talent above the girls are prepared for an interesting season. I'm wishing them luck. and they'll probably need it if league opposi- tion is up to its normal level. But the Owlettes look ready to face the smooth-running basketball machines that will compete against them this year. Regardless of the outlook, Coach Nellie Chappell has her worries; among these is the prob- lem of keeping the girls' attention on the gaxne rather than a spec- tator in tile stands. If they con- tinue to show the desire and in- itiative that they have demonstra- ted so far this year, a successful year awaits them. ?
