"We haven't had to come from behind very often this year. But Williamsburg Is a fine team, and the way we came back shows the charac- ter of this club. "It is really a team. Bob Rig gle is our leading scorer with a 13 plus average, and our No. scorer is Bob Craft, with a 9.8 average. That balance has been the key to our season."
