This year will mark the first time the tournament has. been played on three consecutive days. Always before the teams had a Friday night break before the three-game Saturday finish. The c u r r e n t tourney also marks the · last to be playec in the Wigwam, Beginning rjex- year Ihe event will be held in the new Pendleton H e i g h t s gym. The tournament has been held in the Wigwam since the huge arena was dedicated in in the 1961-62 basketball season after having been initiated in t h e Madison Heights gym in 1959. T h e first three count; tourneys were played in the Pirate bailiwicki the next seven in the Wigwam. This is th eleventh Madison County Tour nejvalthougK' it has been "invitational" s i n c e Madiso Heights dropped out in 1961 an was 'replaced by Middletowr (now Shenandoah) of H e n r County.. , · . · It is anticipated that in th future, with the merger of tw county schools and the consoh dation of another with a Grant County institution, the tourney will come under the banner of White River Conference Tourney. All participating · schools eammates Dennis Shelton and leve Street. Mount Vernon, ighland a n d Yorktown all dipped (he Goblins, though ot by much, but Summitville erailed Frankton's Eagles last 'eekend with a fine effort. If there is a tourney favorite ; probably would be Lapel porting the tallest team in the ield, the Bulldogs boast a front ne of 6-9 Fred Jennings, 6- lex Passwater and 6-2 Steve Caplinger, with 6-3 Greg Layon, the No. 4. county scorer, n the backcourt along with Da- ·id Fuqua or 6-2 Bob Gustin. "hat combination has won six if nine games, losing only to 'rankton, Greenfield and No- ilesville. Dally Hunter is the coach. The V r a n k t o n Eagles, :hough, b l o c k Lapel's path. They beat the Bulldogs once :his year and obviously are capable of doing it again. Coach Paul Davis has a small bul speedy team that includes a number of hot shooters. P h i l Giants All Alone Atop NCC Standings Now Webb is the county's fifth leading scorer, while Davis' son Larry holds- down ninth spot in county pointmaking. A l s o deadly are little Dallas Canfield, Will Alexander and Dave Benefiel. Center Doug Holder, a m e r e six-footer, concentrates rebounding and defense at e expense of scoring. With body on the squad taller than K feet, the Eagles have man- ed to split even in 10 games. now are WRC members. Yorktown and incoming m e m b e r Hamilton Heights have · been playing in other tourneys. The schedule finds defending champion Mount Vernon meeting Pendleton tonight at 7. The second game pits Shenandoah a g a i n s t Highland. Friday'; games include Markleville vs Summitville and L a p e l vs Frankton. Although five present compet itors have nailed ; titles in the 10-year history of the tourney it is entirely possible that ; new champion could be crownec this year. It is equally possible for a'familiar name .to cu down the nets Saturday night Probably never has the fielc been so well balanced as this year, when, all eight schools ar given a fighting c h a n c e o bringing home the bacon. The won-lost records, for in stance, all are equally impres sive. Nobody has'-.been uriabl to win and nobody has licke all comers. The best'reeord i sported -by : 'Lapel' at 1 : 6-3 an the' worst by Highland at 3-7 Everyone else is in between.

The three sharpshooters are back agai this year,'.although Beaty h a been hampered by · injury -in r cent weeks but is back in 1 a tion now. The Marauders' : '4 record, therefore, may be d ceptive. While having an off-seaso Ihis year, Pendleton also is be tcr than its 3-6 record show The Irish have suffered tw losses to tall Lapel, but eac time the margin was close. A other loss came from big. ta ented Madison Heights. Coai Carl Floyd, though, has bei molding the Irish into a mui more consistent combinati w h i c h , includes high-scori Dave Helton, explosive soph more Kirby McCrocklin a Andy Klepfer and s m o o t working guard Gary Burke. Shenandoah misses the heig and experience of last yea club, but coach Ray Pavy h utilized high-scoring Rick Pec inpaugh and his mates we enough to win five of 10 game, Included in the losses we down-to-lhe-wire setbacks fro twice-beaten Wapahani and u beaten ' Yorkiown and a on point loss-to Markleville whi reversed Shenaridoah's earl win over the Arabians. Coach Dick Mitchell and Highland Laddies have lak their lumps, but some of same have come at the hands of some very impressive teams. Lack of size has been a factor, as has illness, in the decline ami fall of the Laddies from their loft; perch of last season. The fine outside shooting of. Allan Yusl and Bill Dickerson, along with, the yeoman's i n s i d e job of Frank Isaacs and the speedy learning of several sophomore prospects, help make Highalnd a team with which to be reckoned despite their 3-7 record. . nd when they win they win the average victory mar- points.
