BEST SCORER for the boys' team without a doubt is junior Ron Huntington, placing fifth in the Upper Valley scoring contest. Best of the rest would be the partial season of Mike Munson. BEST SCORER for the girls' side is just as easy; ankle injury that kept her out of action. But she was there, oil the bench, cheering her lean)mates on. BEST ilUSTLE goes to Ran Huntington and tireless Kathy Peterson, both of whom we can still see sprawling on the fh)or after a loose ball at least twice a game. SCIIOOL SPIRIT award goes first to the Oxbow boys' team and their cohorts, following the girls' team during the latter half of the season. Your enthusiasm was certainly a help. Secondly, to the pop band who gave their time and efforts supporting the local teams at various times throughout the year. OPPONENT ALl, STAR team would have to be Grimes and Darymple from St. Johnsbury, Goddard from U- 32 and any other two people you want to put on the floor. The girls' team might consist of Kim Silloway, St. John- sbury, Jayne Daigle from Lebanon and any three people on the court at the same time. BEST COACHES game would have to be Garone's Milton encounter and Trombley's Itanover game (home). A change of strategy, and a win in both cases BEST SENIOR on the boys' team would have to be Mike Munson followed by Mike Stever. The girls' standout would have to be late bloomers Pam Humphrey and Pam Cook, both helping in the title quest. BEST JUNIOR award goes to Ron Huntington, and Karin Dwyer of girls, with Kathy Peterson close behind in the shadows. /any promising Juniors on both teams will be heard from next year. BEST SOPHOMORE honors have to go to Jody Pratt and Kevin Stever. As in the Junior class, the sophomores will have a chance to show their stuff next year. BEST FRESHMAN has to to Ron Huntington and Kathy be Charlie Barton for the boys Peterson. and Martha Dobbins for the MOST IMPROVED was a girls. tossup but went to Pare WORST DECISION of the Humphrey and Bruce Jacobs, year was the suspension of with Kevin Stever close boys' coach Dean Trombley. behind. Junior center Karin Dwyer (finally got her name spelled right), leading the Upper Valley girls" scoring with a 20 plus average. Second best would have to be Junior Kathy Peterson. BEST PASSER is a hard one. Probably Kathy Peterson and Angle Dobbins for the girls' and Ran Huntington and Chris Jacobs for the boys' team. BEST at getting the ball into the center are two players that didn't see all that much ac- tion. Pam Humphrey on the girls' team and Greg Garone, both showing their stuff in late season action. BEST REBOUNDER would have to go to Mike Munson and Mike Stever, although both were not above reproach in certain games. Karin Dwyer, Jody Pratt and Pam Cook each stood out in key games for the girls BEST GAME of the season had to be the Hanover (home) for the boys' and the semi- final match against Milton for the girls. WORST GAME of the season, was again against Hanover (away) and for the girls', the Vergennes game, at home, in the quarterfinals. BEST INDIVIDUAL GAME was Mike Munson and Bruce Jacobs against Hanover theme) and Ron Huntington for his two high scoring games, helping the boys to victory. Karin Dwyer, Pare Cook in the Milton game took honors for the girls. BEST SltOOTER awards go BEST JUMPER award went to none other 'skier' Charlie Grant and Karin Dwyer. BEST BALL CONTROL consisted of Ron Huntington and Karin Dwyer, as evidenced by her use in the Milton game in Barre. MOST COACHABLE seemed to be Mike and Kevin i Stever for Trombley's team and Marsha Carbee and Jody Pratt for Mona Garone's quintet. WORST PLAY of the year had to come in the home junior varsity boys' game against North Country as the locals were badly outcoached in the final two seconds, losing a cliff hanger. But you can learn from your mistakes. SURPRISE OF THE YEAR had to be the team effort throughout the year by the girls' varsity. With only one returning starter, they came within a wisher of taking it all. SECOND WORSE DECISION of the year goes to the administration and school board for delaying their decision in the Trombley ease 'so that the other side could be heard.' We are still waiting. BEST DECISION of the year goes to the unidentifiable Oxbow Boys' Varsity player who spoke out against the administration and their handling of the Trombley case. He was able to 'tell it like it was' and should help make Oxbow a better place to play sports in years to come, if they listened. WORST POSITION of the year has to go to JV coach Jim Kelly. In the middle of a hornets net. he did all his power to pull the team together, but to no avail. He did a credible job on the JV team. but was asked, unfairly, to try and right a wrongful situation on the varsity level. It was a thankless job, except in this colunm. (ongratulations. DISAPPOINTMENT of the BEST ATTITUDE bad to go year, goes to Oxbow boys' not to the 'bench warmers' on making the playoffs. A tough both squads. An integral part schedule (opponents winning of any team, it is hard to sit 68 per cent of their games) and watch, especially when injuries to key personnel at things are going from bad to the beginning of the year, worse. Win or lose, they were internal, bickering, and breaks nol going their way, all were parl of the sum, adding up to no playoffs this year.

Wells River Savings Bank Wells River, Vermont National Bank of Newbury Wells River, Vermont March I, 1981 Antlerless report given to legislature The final record of the 1980 antlerless season was delivered to the legislature recently and the report makes interesting reading for the hunter. In May the Fish and Game Department recommended that the Fish and Game Board adopt an antlerless deer season in fourteen hunting zones. The proposal called for the issuing of 43,301 permits to harvest 13,856 deer with an anticipated success rate of 32 per cent. The final tally shows an antlerless harvest of 14,703 with a success rate of 34.9 per cent. Landowners experienced a 9.9 per cent success rate, taking 386 deer. Permanent license holders took 1,000 deer for a success rate of 23.1 per cent and non-residents hunting in the three southern zones took 367 deer for a success rate of 42.7 per cent. The data collected at biological check stations shows that the antlerless kill was composed of l per cent adult males, 71 per cent adult females and 28 per cent male and female fawns. Zone H hunters took 1115 antlerless deer. Residents took 977, permanent license holders took 86 and landowners bagged 52. In Zone J the results were 2729 taken. Residents harvested 2429, permanent license holders 189 and landowners took 111.

The discrimination charge arose after a woman was eliminated from further competition for a job after failing to complete the task of dragging a 150 pound railroad tie and loading it into a truck in 30 seconds. She was 5.6 seconds over the allotted time. Under theagreement the test will be modified to eliminate time periods and to alter the weight dragging requirements. The scoring will be changed so that women will be competing againstwomen, not men, in tests of strength. The Fish and Game Department has agreed to recruit qualified women and to hire a woman for the next available opening. The woman who filed the complaint was awarded $2,145 in back wages. New Hampshire turkey season For the second year New Hampshire will have a turkey season. Sportsmen will have nine days, May 16 through 24 to hunt. Each hunter i allowed one male turkey. This year the open zones will consist o[ 990 square mies in Sullivan and Chesire Counties. Permits ".l be allocated on a first come basis until 2,000 have been issued. Residents re to receive 1,785 and nonresidents 215. The applications should be available from license agents and the department by March 23. They may not be postmarked earlier than March 26. Salmon meeting Interested sportsmen are invited to attefid a Fish and Game Commission meeting to provide input on a Strategic Plan for the Management of Landlocked Salmon in New Hampshire. The meeting will be held on March 18 at 7 p.m. in the conference room at Fish and Game headquarters in Concord.
