II REOtSTCRSTAII KEWa the View From Here By John Malcolm R'-S-N Sporli Editor Sectional Play Loses Fremont ANNUAL sectional Class A tournament play at the Junior High gym will be Without one of its "threat" teams when action opens Feb. 24. Under a new alignment, Fremont Ross will vie in sectional play at Rossford in the opening rung of the climb toward the •tate basketball honors. Sandusky and Rossford are two of six •cctional tournament sites In the northwest district, with Toledo, Defiance, Lima and Marlon the ether four. * * * THE WINNERS will advance to Toledo University Field House for district play March 9-10, with the three winners staying there to be joined by the Columbus Winner for regional play the fol lowing week-end with a trip to .the finals at Cleveland Arena March 23-24 the prize for the 'lone survivor. The local eliminations will re main a lO-team field, however, with Townsend-Wakeman High school at Wakeman (Huron-co) moving up to the Class A ranks ^Is year. Vermilion was a newcomer last season. T-W is in the Huron-Erie League. St. Joseph HiKh school at Fremont is also maktnc the step up from 'B' ranks, and, like Ross, wHI play at Rossford. SMH Bids For 3rd Straight Here Tonight If Clyde iiiovi next fall, they'll also probably Ko to Rossford. The tournaments in the northwest districts all will be played on Friday and Saturday nights as not to conflict with school time, and the experiment is being watched closely throughout the state. The juggling—which also has Anthony Wayne moving from Rossford to Defiance and Bowling Green and Perrysburg to Toledo from Rossford— is being done in an attempt to have schools playing as close to home as possible. * • * OTHERS TAKING part in play here along with T-W and Vermilion are Sandusky High, St. Mary's, Tiffin Calvert, Tiffin Columbian, Wlllard, Norwalk, Belle- •ue and Port Clinton. Play will run Feb. 24-25 and March 2-3, with SHS athletic director Vic Malinovsky again tour nament manager. Mansfield Much Like Streak The present Mansfield basketball team is one of the smallest, if not the smallest, Vern Hoffman has sent into action in his 17 years as Tyg' • tutor. And with the schedule the Ty- gers play. It looks like a long season for the Richland-co cag- ers. Although blasted by Middletown for their worst loss, 99-39, the Tygers have perked up somewhat with the presence of jump- in' Willie Mack in the lineup, now recovered from a football injury. And they did dump Lima Friday night, 66-51. Since he 's going to lose some. It might as well be with juniors, or so Hoffman's thinking seems to go. For a rebuilding program is in full swing. He dropped four seniors recently to give more time to developing sophomore and junior talent. Included in the ones cut was former Sanduskian Carl Alexander. • * * Rose Bowl officials are suggesting a unique gift for stay-at- home fans who will be watching the Jan. 2 game on TV . . .

Which puts Cleveland's showing to shame . . . Blue Streaks Tackle Lorain Wednesday Hoping the frigid blasts stay outside the gym and don't creep into any of his players, John Feicht sends his St. Mary's Panthers out tonight after their most important foe to date. Port Clinton's towering Redskins furnish the opposition for the unbeaten Panthers and a more true line on the ability of the parochial may be drawn off tonight's showing. Sandusky High's Blue Streaks are primed for their lone battle of the week, playing at Lorain Wednesday night against the Steelers in a Buckeye Conference match. St. Mary's goes back at it Saturday night when they play at Norwalk against Grant Walls' Truckers. Next start for the Streaks after the Lorain game is at the Junior High Wednesday, Dec. 28, with relentless Findlay providing the opposition in another BC scrap. * * * THE PANTHERS know they're going to have their hands full tonight, and have gone about practice chores with that in mind. Despite a so-so 3-2 record, the Porters are blessed with plenty of height and pack plenty of scoring punch. Biggest of the visitors is 6-6 forward Tim Mulligan, who along with 6-3 center John Bergman give Coach Bob Green's visitors a rebounding trio that has the stuff to take the play away from-the^ smaller Panthers. Despite their disadvantage, the Panthers have shown keen shooting form and Feicht is confronted with the pleasing problem of having four players giving starters a run for opening berths. Fostoria St. Wendelin was a known patsy; Clyde, bothered somewhat by injuries and illness, was unexpectedly easy; now let's see what they do with a major opponent. * • * STILL BASKING in the limelight of their first win. Jack Freitas' cagers have also been working hard for their Wednesday encounter and want to knock off the favored Steelers. Lorain, with four regulars back from last season's hot-shooting club, has rolled to four straight wins and have shown no signs of letting up and will be out to repay the locals for their October gridiron embarrassment. Added to the four returnees by Coach Al McConihe was 6-2 senior center Ron Ferlic to form a cast that has won over Amherst, 81-41; Brookside, 73-49; Fremont Ross, 71-60, and Canton Lehman, 78-76. Heading the lettermen is 5-11 Dale Relchert, who last year set a season scoring record at LHS of 318 points after scoring 137 as a sophomore. Big man in the scoring scheme to date this campaign has been 6-foot forward Ron Robel, who dropped in 232 last time around. Rounding out the cast is 5-10 forward Tom McConihe, who totaled 236 last time, and 6-foot guard Jim Andorka (137). A good little team with plenty of shooting strength. * * * THERE'S PLENTY of other top action around the area. Including Norwalk at Clyde, Greenwich at Norwalk St. Paul, Montgomery at Milan, Thompson at North Fairfield and Townsend at Lakeside. In an important Buckeye Conference battle, Marion Harding invades Findlay, while Fremont Ross plays outside the loop at Tiffin Columbian. Other games tonight: Willard at Bucyrus, Ontario at Plymouth, Elmore at Pemberville, Jackson- Liberty at Gibsonburg, Mansfield at East Liverpool, Crestline at Gallon and Massillon at Ashland.
