Coach Lyle Slater's crew was spotty throughout the season but finished with two wins to pull up into a fourth place late, sharing the spot with Highland, a team his Indians rapped, 13-0, closing outah's other late win was over Civic Memorial, 14-6. Slater's key losses were George Klimes, a fullback- linebacker; Peter Krauch, a running back who also doubled as a,linebacker; and quarterback Paul Riggs. Returnees are headed by Strub McCool, a senior back and two-year letterman. He's only 5-foot-4 and weighs 135 pounds. Other seniors with letters to then- credit include quarterback Greg Coleman, 170; end John Hale, 170; guards Dave Wombacher, 190, and Ken Hodrl, 180; tackles Mark Voudrir, 180, and George Komora, 175; centers Jois Albright, 185, and Jim Stukenberg, 175; and backs Wayland Harris, 145, Mike Tubbs, 170, and Chris Johnson, 180. Junior lettermen are Dale Friederich, 180, a middle guard, and end Bill Johnson, 185. Mascoutah's conference losses were to Roxana, 27-6; Jerseyville, 18-15; O'Fallon, 37-0; and Wood River, 14-6. Coupled with the .wins mentioned above, the Indians also downed Triad, 27-24. Mascoutah opened its season last year with a 24-0 whitewash of Dupo and then lost to Mater Dei, 18-12, to even up its non-conference action. Mascoutah opens Friday against Eiverdo, a new opponent, replacing Dupo. MASCOUTAH LETTERMEN: (14) Joe Albright, C, 185, Sr.; Greg Coleman, QB, 170, Sr.j John Hole, E, 170.

MASTER CHARGE • SHOPPERS CHARGE • REGULAR CHARGE FERGUSON AT WHITELAW—WOOD RIVER ' FREE PARKING IN DOWNTOWN WOOD RIVER, NO METERS Belleville West has the makings of a powerhouse With 18 returning lettermen, headed by three outstanding performers, a quick analysis might type Belleville West as a contender for the Southwestern Conference title. But the Maroons, according to coach Bruce Arnold, will have to develop rapidly at key positions to challenge. "We need six offensive starters and seven on defense/' he says, "and all are important positions to fill. Besides graduation losses, Arnold's task was further complicated by the tragic death of Mark Pearson. Pearson, a- defensive back, was killed in an auto accident. And Don Zeller, an end, has moved to Springfield, 111. But among his 18 assets (including three juniors), is left-handed senior quarterback Gary Mauser, who threw 16 touchdown passes in a 1211-yard assault. He averaged 4.3 rushing, adding four, more TDs in that category. Jim Hill, another senior returnee, caught 21 passes for a 20.8 average as a halfback and scored three TDs rushing. He averaged 4.8 per carry. Another of Arnold's outstanding returnees is Matt Bowman, a 203-pound guard- linebacker, known for his two- way endurance. Mauser, Hill and Bowman are tri-captains, and two-year letter winners. Jay Fields, a 195-pound fullback, averaged 4.1 rushing and was a good blocker, returns as a two-year letter m a n . Tackle Joe Baillargeon, a 210-pounder, will also be an offensive starter. "Defensively, we have no starters returning in the secondary and only one linebacker (Hill)", Arnold points out. "In the line we have John Poletti, Steve Bendick and Jeff Kroenig, leaving us with seven positions to fill." Kevin Rose, used primarily as a linebacker; Mark Alberts, halfback-cornerback; and Kent Randle, halfback- safety, are starting candidates. All are seniors. The Maroons swept to eight straight wins btfore suffering successive conference losses to Granite City (23-13) and East St. Louis (18-0), leaving them with a 3-2 SC record. Their conference wins came by the way of Alton, 20-14; Collinsville, 34-20; and Edwardsville, 27-14. Outside the SC, they defeated East St. Louis Assumption, 19-0; Belleville East, 26-8; and Belleville Althoff, 35-0. Like all of the league's coaches, Arnold agrees that the addition of Belleville East and Cahokia will make assignments tougher from week-to-week. He evaluates the league as "pretty even, with no easy teams. The schedule favors Granite City." Avoiding any mention of his Maroons, Arnold picks East St. Louis and Belleville East to follow Granite City in the parade. The Maroons will take on additional punishment with new foes Glenbard West and Hinsdale Central from the highly-respected West Suburban League. BELLEVILLE WEST LETTER-.
