The Sports Department made a mis- take with one of the headings for the GCHS Softball Squad, by stating in- stead that the box scores were for the GCHS Baseball Squad. We sinccrely apologize for this mistake and hope that no issues were created out of our error. The 2003 WDIIB All-Americans were announced Apr. 10. Rcnee Gagnicr, a .junior and thc center lor Concord received third team honors. Lisa Lee of University of Charleston joined nine others for the All-Fresh- man Tcam. Traey Wyatt, a junior at Glenville State College, was Hon- orable Mention All-American sta- tus for the 2003 NCAA Women's Basketball Division II. By Sports Staff Head Football Coach Paul Shaffner was pleased with GSC's 2003 spring flx~tball game which saw the Blue Team (the defense) better the White Team (the offense), 45-36, at Morris Stadium on last Saturday aftcrm~m. "Overall, it was a good scrimmage, and we incurred no injuries, which is a major plus," he states, adding, "I thought the game was a gocu,,I climax, a gotxt way to end spring training. Both teams played well, but yet, we realize that we still need to improve. We are a very young team this year which is gt,xxl in some respects and bad in others." Coach Shaffncr went on to say, "We only have four ~niors. How- ever, we have go~d talent that can come together as a unit and as a fam- ily. The day was a great turn-out for the fans and family. Afterwards, wc had a picnic with over 200 in atten- dance? it was a great day and goc~l fiuad. We appreciate the fans for sup- porting us, and wc Ic~k lbrward to seeing them at all of our home games to cheer the Pioneers on." He, also. notes that 55 players have bccn at spring practice and another 3 I freshmen or transfer students are ex- pected in the fall. Moreover, he explains that the GSC Blue-White lntrasquad Game is dill fcrent than most scrimma,,e eamcs whereby the teams are equally di- vided and each side runs offensive plays and does the defense, too. At GSC's lntrasquad game, the of tense has the ball for every play, but the defense scores points by preventing the offense from moving the ball. The scoring, though, is somewhat confusing to the scorekeepers who lag behind in putting the points on the scoreboard, but the whole exercise makes for a more unusual, more equal football game. With the offensive team always on the offcnsivc sidc of the field and the defcnse, on the defending side. the .,,;coring is normal for touchdowns, points after touchdowns, field goals, and safeties for the offensive team (the Whites). Also, the Whites got one point for cach first down thcy made. For thc dclcnsc (the Blues), however, they got points for each first down they prevented and for stopping the offense within the 10 yard line. From the opening play of the game, the defense proved to better the of_ tense, forging ahead. 6-0, with 10:58 minutes left in the first quarter. By the end of the quarter, they carried a 12- 6 lead into the second quarter. Then, the WhitEs place-kicker, Sherman Vaughn, a 5'8", 165 pounder from Brunswick, Md., kicked a 29- yard field goal to close the score to 16-12 Blues which is the closcst the Whites got in the first hall with 8:35 minutes left. By half-time, the Blues had extended their lead to 31 - I g. In the opening minutes of the sec- ond half, the Whites closed the lead to 31-29 with a touchdown and some other first down points. The Blues, then, vaulted to a 43-29 lead at the end of the third quarter. The final score was Blucs45-Whites 36, that is if the scoreboard was cor- rect. So, GSC Coach Paul Shaffner is looking at a solid defense to start off the 2003 campaign in quest of a WVIAC championship and some more offensive punch in this fall's new recruits. port your local School AthleticsI Don't forget National Secretary's Week next week.* See related ad on page 6. ! _a~7- Montavon, II (No. 29), a 6'1", 205 lb. fullback from caught a short pass, he scampered down the field being tackled by two hotly-pursuing Blues.
