Clubs that attended the conference were FBLA, FHA, VICA, FFA, and 4-H. Two members of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Club at Oxbow High School attended the con- ference. The members who attended from Oxbow were Bethanne Wright, local president, and Tammy Sarazin, secretary. Topics discussed at the conference were "Running a Meeting, Planning a Meeting, and Public Speaking." after the graudation of five seniors last year. Most of this year's team is made up of juniors and freshmen. The first month of e season has been good with 3 wins and two losses, two tie record. High scorers were Nuet Welles, Betty Bogle, and Jackie Brock. This is a good start considering the players had to adjust to one another. Hopefully the rest of the season will be prosperous. sville's F.F.A. Chapter en- joyed him thoroughly. Woodsville Sports Woodsville High School athletics are well represented this year. After a 5-1 victory over the Littleton Crusaders, the field hockey team's winning pace slowed down. We tied Mascoma 1-1 with the game being called 10 minutes into the second half due to the rain. We lost to White Mountain 3-2. Gaining momentum, we then went on to beat Lyndon Institute 9-1. We have had many injuries but thanks to the great backup work by the other players, we will continue to do well, The soccer team is also doing very well. We faced St. Johnsbury last Monday and came out on top with a final score of 6-1. We then faced Oxbow on Wednesday and were vi-*'Jrious again. The soccer team now has a record of 6-1-I. The x-country was hurt because of an injury that the third runner, Jeff Eliot, suffered. Jon Thorton was our top runner but White Moun- tain still won.

High scorers were Nuet Welles, Betty Bogle, and Jackie Brock. This is a good start considering the players had to adjust to one another. Hopefully the rest of the season will be prosperous. sville's F.F.A. Chapter en- joyed him thoroughly. Woodsville Sports Woodsville High School athletics are well represented this year. After a 5-1 victory over the Littleton Crusaders, the field hockey team's winning pace slowed down. We tied Mascoma 1-1 with the game being called 10 minutes into the second half due to the rain. We lost to White Mountain 3-2. Gaining momentum, we then went on to beat Lyndon Institute 9-1. We have had many injuries but thanks to the great backup work by the other players, we will continue to do well, The soccer team is also doing very well. We faced St. Johnsbury last Monday and came out on top with a final score of 6-1. We then faced Oxbow on Wednesday and were vi-*'Jrious again. The soccer team now has a record of 6-1-I. The x-country was hurt because of an injury that the third runner, Jeff Eliot, suffered. Jon Thorton was our top runner but White Moun- tain still won.
