i,orts Scene by Snyder riag sports program at St. Marys High School drew to a ast week as the golf team wound up third in regional play e azmual state track meet was held in Charleston. So ends ,t fl School year in SMHS sports annuals and like most  we eagerly look forward to the start of football practice lst 1,  Schools were represented in the state golf regional at _'s Spledel coarse last Monday and a team which the u l linksmen had beaten only the previous week returned them and capture first place in the sprawling field of t. Brooke County, who only the previous week found el 'es sorely lacking against the balance of the Blue Devils tJ agular match at the Moundsville County Club came up a :ow team score of win first place honors in the a and thus qualify its squad for the upcoming state 'a Finishing second was a team which the Blue Devils ,_ ced all year -- Wheeling Central -- with a score of 359, wo lnts better than the 'Devils 361 for the 18 holes. [.in behind the top three finishes were Tria.delphta, g, John l,rshall, Magnolia, Sistersvllle, Weirton, Oak ? Warwood, not necessarily in that order of finish. to the team woes, none of the individuals shot well to qualify for the state playoffs. According to the rules, !_(wo teams in each regional qualify for the state plus the e individuals and they may not necessarily be from ;he t one and two teams. Dave Robey carded an 89 for the low r Coach Dave Graham's troops which was a good score .mg the chamoionship calibre of the course where the ,as played.

II *FU tally for the team. What was needed for the team to win was one of the boys coming through with a real good score although, as we said, all had respectable scores when you consider that there were numerous boys who finished over 100 for the 18 holes. Regardless of the outcome of the regional, the local team finished with an overall record of 3q-6 which is certainly a target for future teams to shoot at. The best previous record was 15-14. And the nice thing about the '72 squad is only two boys are seniors -- Dave Wilson and Doug Olds. Six boys wll be return- lng a n d four of that nmber played as regular m o r e or less throughout the season. Returning in '73 are Dave Robey, John Dawkins, Eric Reckard, Tim Ambrose (who will be the only senior next year), Mike Waldeck, M'rk Smith and Mike Weber. Dawkins and Robey will be juniors next year as will Waldeck while Smtth, Weber and Reckard will be sophomores. That looks to us like golf will be strong on the local scene for the next couple of years and maybe they'll crack the jinx of the regionals and make it to the state next year. Since the sport of golf was introduced at SMHS the Gaham- coached teams have established 11 school records prior to '72. Daring that 37-6 record achievem,mt this year they broke no less than eight: (1) new low score in 9 holes for team -- 147 against John Marshall; (2) new low score for team in 18 holes -- 313 set in LKC meet; (3) Best score in LKC tourney-- 313; (4)best finish in LKC -- first (champion); (5) best finish in regional play -- third; (6) best team record for a single season -- 37-6; ) best individual score in LKC tourney -- Dave Wilson (34-39-73); (8) best individual score in a mtch -- one under par 33 against John M:rshall at home and one under par 34 on the front nine in the LKC tourney played at South Hills. The three records which remain intact are: (1) Best score in regional play set in 1970 when they finished with a 332; (2) best individual score in regional play -- set by Dave Wilson in '71 with a 38-36-84; (3) no qualifier either as team -r individual for the state matches. Certainly in the years to come these records will topple the new ones established as the popular spring sport continues to draw more and more interest. The track squad likewise finished its season and the only scorer for the Blue Devils was Wayne Mflneix who finished third in the discus to account for St. Marys' only three points. Some 30 schools were represented in the AA division of the state met and St. MaWs finished in a tie with Ravenswood, Williamsto L Webster Springs, Shepherstown and l2dridge for 17th place -- all had only three points. Oceana won the AA division with a team score of 39, defeating defending champion Mount Hpe by only eight points. Poca, Gary and Ceredo-Kenova were the only other schools to score 20 or more points in the two day meet at Charleston.
