American Lung Ski Event Moved The second annual Silver Creek Ski Weekend sponsored by the American Lung Associa- lion of West Virginia, has be6n pushed back a week to Decem- ber 7, 8 and 9. ~'l'he good news is that people who could not make the earlier weekend, may be able to come next weekend. The unseasonably warm weather we are experienc- ing is making it impossible for the resort to make and retain a snow base," said Lucian Schrader, event organizer. "We have it on good authority from Accuweather that a cold front is moving in and will be here throughout the week," he added.

"This is the first time we've reached the sectionals in my eight years of coaching here." she said. "It's taken a lot of team work and skill.

"We finally accomplished something more than in previous years." Mrs Reed said, "To finally take the sectional title is won- derful. The girls were so ex- cited--you couldn't hold them down with weights. They worked hard for this--3-1/2 hours of practice each day, lols of run- nlng. and practices on sortie Sat- urdays and vacation days. It re- ally paid off." Mrs Reed said the success of the players is linked to team- work. "We soon reached a record of nine wlns and no losses.
