Middle Row: Doug Moyers, Tony Hardman, Ryan Tomblin, Billy Weaver. Back Row: Jamey Hall, Gary Jenkins, Andy Sirbagh, Thomas Robinson. Not Pictured: Josh McCullough. Vipers set new standard for all Gilmer County District Little League Divisions The Senior League team (ages 15-16) recently participated in the State Tournament. The Gilmer County Vipers traveled to Martinsburg on the 23rd of July and spent four days up there. They finished third in the state, which was quite good, consider- ing that the other teams in their pool were each comprised of play- ers from multiple leagues that had been merged together. In game one vs. Bluefield/Pin- nacle, Gilmer scored a 6-3 vic- tory. Jesse Darby pitched a com- plete game for the win. The de- fense was outstanding,with Doug Moyers, Billy Weaver, Tony Hardman, .Thomas Robinson, Timmy White and Gary Jenkins all turning in sparkling plays. Catcher Jenkins threw out two run- ners early to shut down the enemy running game. Andy Sirbaugh, Jamey Hall and Ryan Tomblin had hits, as did Jenkins and Weaver (2B). The Vipers made" it to within one game of the state champion- ship tilt before falling to Charles Town/Ranson 7-1. Gilmer was able to load the bases twice late in the game, but couldn't break through. Jenkihs took the loss on the mound. Hitters were Darby 2- 4, Sirbaugh 2-4, Tomblin 1-3, Robinson 2-2, and Moyers 1-3. The state tournament capped off a successful season for the Vipers. They are the first team from Gilmer County to reach the state tourney in any Little League Di ,ision. They wish to thank ev- eryone who supported them this year and look forward to another district title and return to the state tournament next season! picked third O in preseason football poll The West Virginia Intercolle- giate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) Office recently released the 2004 preseason football poll, as voted by the head coaches. The Pioneers received two of the pos- sible nine first place votes and were voted third in the poll. New head coach Alan Fiddler inherits an amazing 20 returning starters as he makes his collegiate debut at Glenville State (5-6, 4-3). The Pioneers could boast one of the region's most explosive attacks with QB Joey Conrad and WR Antonio Carter. Carter and Conrad have been named to the pre-season All- American team. Cartera6'0", 180 lb. senior from College Park, GA snared 81 passes for 1168 yards in 2003. Conrad a 6'4", 200 lb. junior from Logan, OH merely estab- lished WVIAC total offense records for freshmen and sopho- mores during his first two seasons as a Pioneer. GSC has elenty of size uo front with four offensive line starters back, including 6'9", 330 lb. senior Chris Nunn. Sopho- more WR Tavon McGee provides Conrad with another dangerous target. A secondary that remains intact could be a strength for the Pioneer defense. Dennis Stanton, Lamont Howard, and Zack Hopkins form the core of an excellent defensive backfield. Dana Raban, Brian Hefner, and Gary Hefner are standouts among the front seven. Here is the WVIAC Football Coachs' Poll: 1. WV Weslyan (6) 69 2. Shepherd (1) 58 3. Glenville State (2) 57 4.

Hunting and Fishing Ill Snakehead Fish issues call attention to invasive species problems Recent reports from Maryland and Virginia on the presence ofsnakehead fish in their waters are cause for con- cem in West Virginia, according to Ed Hamrick, Director of the West Virginia Division of Natural Re- sources. "While snakeheads have not been collected by our fisheries staff, or reported caught by anglers in West Virginia waters, they have been found in a pet shop and in a home aquarium. We are concerned that these and other invasiv aquatic species could be es- tablished in We~t Virginia and cause significant harm to our aquatic envi- ronments, particularly sport fish popu- lations," said Hamrick. "I encourage anglers whb think that they may have caught a snakehead to contact our district fisheries' biolo- gists or conservation officers. Please do not release the fish if you think that it may be a snakehead. I also remind folks that snakeheads have been added to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service' s injurious wildlife list. Under this regu- lation, the importation into the U.S. and transportation across state lines are illegal. Additionally, West Vir- ginia state law regulates the release of fish and other aquatic organisms into waters of~e state. The DNR web site has information about snakeheads and links to other information about invasive aquatic species," said Hamrick. The address is www. ing/snakehead, shtm . Invasive aquatic species are an in- creasing threat to aquatic ecosystems across the country. Introductions of invasive zebra mussels and round go- COrn try attac ever tOW; Bm N fres; bea we' he i: dan me. M( lar BL ml sU bies have had impacts on sport fishigu-x qlbtl in Lake Erie, and some species |...._) Asian carp are threatening the Great Lakes as well. "Recreational impacts and eco- nomic costs associated with invasive species can be substantial if invasive species do become a problem. Con- trol measures usually are very expen- sive and difficult to implement. In- forming anglers of these threats is important because they are our best first line of defense to guard against invasive species," said Hamrick.
