NINTH GRADE BASKETBALL was FRONT ROW: Joe Kennedy, Jeff Ferguson, Winford Patton, Chuck Williams, Kelly Browner, Clayton Withrow. BACK ROW: (manager) Gene Schnar, Ronnie Williams, Steve Spoonhoward, Rod Clarke, Jeff Todd, Brett Smith, Billy Hannah, Ken Hancock, Coach, Mr. Banks. Small size cripples freshmen Sickness and injury plagued the freshmen team as they posted a disappointing 5-7 season. Another reason for the sub .500 season was because of only four home games. Bad weather cancelled two games. Mr. Banks, who had coached the eighth grade for the past few years and then switched to ninth grade, said, " If we had had five more games at home, we would have won them. " Mr. Banks also said, " The only games we should have lost were to Logansport and, I guess, Muncie (Central), cause they were very aggressive. " Some of the major mishaps at mid-season were a knee injury to Chuck Williams that sidelined him for most of the season, and a broken finger to Jeff Ferguson that completely limited his action. Steve Spoonhoward also sustained a mid-season injury, but managed to regain his starting position for the last two regularly scheduled games. In the freshmen tourney, Jones played even basketball for four quarters in both games, then lost in overtime to both McCulloch (42-44) and Blackford County (64-71) and took a surprising fourth in the tourney. McCulloch went on to win the tourney, but Jones got revenge later with a 48-41 trouncing near the end of the season. The talented 6 ' 3 " Jeff Todd, who led his team in scoring all three years he was at Jones, moved out to the high school to play reserve basketball for the Giants. Todd, who averaged 18 points a game this year, said, " It ' s great, I think I ' m just lucky to be playing at the high school. " The " B " team also had a disappointing season, posting a 2-6 record. In the last game against Eastbrook, Mr. Banks was forced to play two of his student managers in both " A " and " B " games to replace fouled out players and the vacancy of the missing Jeff Todd and Steve Spoonhoward.
