Junior Tom asked Wernecke what his major objective in teaching is. Pondering for a few moments he says, "I don't have any definite plan. My objectives vary from kid to kid. I guess I try to challenge each child to improve himself. The im- portant thing is that each individual improves between August and June, to his full potential." One of the things that Wernecke appreciates about teaching in the community of Bradford is the fact that he knows a lot of the students and their parents directly. He states: "It makes it easy when discussing a student's progress. A personal talk is so much better than a letter" As for the future, Wernecke plans to continue teaching at Oxbow. Ninth Grade Class Trip The ninth grade at Oxbow High School went on their annual class trip to Montreal, Canada on Friday, May 28th, 1982. The class was divided up and went to see numerous sights including various churches. The trip was all part of a unit the ninth grade social studies classes did on Canada. Golf The 1982 Golf season at Oxbow High School has come to a close. After six meets including sectionals (a sort of play-down) in Barre, Vt. and a record of two wins and eight losses (some meets had more than two teams participating) the team members andtheir coach Pete Ledwith, can relax and look forward next season. When asked how he thinks the Oxbow Golf team will fare in 1983, Ledwith stated that he thinks they will do "quite well" because the squad is "only losing one senior starter (Scott Knox ) ." The members of the 1982 Oxbow High School golf team are: Seniors, Scott Knox, John Ertie and Mark Osgood; Sophomores, Doug O'Donald, Don bhearn, Charles Barton, John Drugash and David Schramm along with Fresh- man Ken Bagley.

Sue McKinley and Cricket Doyle lashed out thre hits apiece, pitcher Sheila Fifield three more including a double and Anne Fetter's three hits included a home run. Fifield and Fetter combined their pitching talents (two of the better pitchers in the Upper Valley) allowing the Wasps six hits. Fifield got credit for the win, giving her an unblemished 10- 0 for the year. In the 14-4 win over Rochester, the Thetford Panthers staked their claim on the Central Vermont League championship title for the second year in a row. Although finding the field for only six hits, they made them count, building up a 7-0 lead after two innings. The only Panther to collect more than one hit was shortstop Cricket Doyle with two singles. Base on balls and nine Rochester miscues helped the Panther cause. Sheila Fifield was right on target, striking out eight batters and allowing two scratch singles in pitching the distance.

With the losses, they also lost any hopes of post season play. In the Mascoma game, the Engineers found their batting eye that has eluded them so often this year. Woodsville streaked to an early 13-1 lead after just three innings. Mascoma struck for six runs in the sixth, closing the gap to 14-9 but a five run bottom half of the inning put the game away for Steve Walker's Engineers. Lisa and Leslie Strickland led the Woodsville batters and Trish Demers and Sandy Boyce were the battery mates for the winning team.
