JUST IN SPORT By TED If Ross hadn't won the 220-yard dash in the finals of the state high school track and field meet held at Morgantown Saturday no one would have known that Charleston high school was entered. The 220-yard dash was the only event in which Charleston captured a first place. In the total meet points they tied for fourth position with Triadelphia high, according to reports from the university. Oak Hill high school, of Oak Hill, termed by some scribes as little Oak Hill high stepped to the front for. the second time in the second major state high school athletic event of Last March a little school by the name of Hundred won the state high school basket ball tournament at Buckhannon and now cornea another small school to run away with West Virginia's second major high school athletic championship of the year. Although Charleston was the defending champion in the meet Saturday, there were few who thought they would win it even though they had defeated such teams as Oak Hill, Huntington and Parkers- burg In scheduled meets. It takes ax-group of good individual per- formers to run away with the state track meet or an aggregation of good place-men and Charleston had neither. It has been a banner season for the Red Devils of Oak Hill not only in track but in football, for the Oak Hill high school eleven in the latter part of 1029, which Includes the present school term, proved itself one of the best if not the best high school football team in southern West Virginia among the smaller schools and a dangerous threat to most of the larger ones of which a few were defeated. Although there's no baseball game here Sunday the Charles- ton Tennis clnb will step Into the headline of the Sunday sport calendar lor it Is scheduled with the Parkersfourg Tennis club .earn here at the South Ruffner courts at Z o'clock. Nine matches, three doubles and six singles are listed. The Charleston team will be playing Its third match of the season, having won both of Its other two by clean sweeps, taking all matches. Marshall college and Davis and Elkins the victims. With the completion and opening of another course in Charles- ton there are now four Tom Thumb gojf courses in West Virginia's capital. The first course to be erected here is on Kanawha street, the second is situated at Capitol and Washington streets, the third is on the west side on Virginia street just over the Elk river bridge the fourth and has been opened on Washington street In the east end just east of the state capitol building. Entries have already started pouring in for membership Into the new tennis club here which will be located on the west side. The club will open two courts around the first of .June. The club Is called the Peqnoiiia Tennis club and will open with 45 mem- bers, 25 men and 20 women. Another Charleston athletic machine made a poor showing Sat- urday afternoon when a band of baseball players titled the Aahlanci Arrncos from Ashland, Ky., managed to edge out a 7-6 victory over Watt Powell's Charleston Senators. It was the Powellmtm's sixth defeat in seven starts. It has been suggested by one Capital fan that Powell shift all of his players around one position to see if k will break the jinx that is hanging over the Charleston club. The Sena- tors have a good team now but are not even getting an oven break. in fact, very few breaks at all. Charleston should have scored a. fi-5 win over Ashland Saturday but as luck would have it they lost when the Armcos scored two runs. W .Tack Bentley, Charleston welterweight and sometimes called tlie "Hoosler will box a six-round bout with Young Toffy Griffiths, of Ashland, Ky., at the benefit show to be put on at Ironton, O., Thursday nlglit. The Ashland Iwxer has taken a good flffht name. He Is not the nationally known Ttiffy Griffiths. HODGE-PODGE: Although the Charleston Athletic club boxing bouts every Friday night here at the club are boxing exhibitions bout coming up Friday night with "Spud" Ballard and Jack Carpenter which Is not going to be an exhibition. These two are meeting in what they regard as a grudge battle. It will have to be settled in three rounds for that is the bout limit for tho match. Bobby Grant, formerly a Charleston boxer, but now selling oil and grease and promoting boxing exhibitions, has another name which is his real name. It Is Robert Ralsbeck. Ralph Rowan, who was signed and later obtained a release from the CharleH- ton Senators, has taken up dancing. It rained at Churchill Downs Saturday and as a result the writer was "all Picking Tannery to capture the derby If it rained was as good a thought to have as was the one in regards to the Senators beating Ashland hern Saturday and Charleston high winning the state track meet at Morgantown.
