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.

First eighth grade wins tourney Seconds only remained in a game that saw Jones battle back from a ten point disadvantage into a one point lead. Jones then scored on a rebound by Tom Elkins to defeat McCulloch 37-34. This was the thrilling end to the eighth grade ' s 12-3 season. Mr. Lowe, in his second straight year as the team ' s coach, led the eighth grade to an undefeated home schedule and the tournament title, two important preseason goals. Against Fairmount in the first home game of the season, Jones easily won 60-36. Jones led the whole game displaying tremendous offensive and defensive pressure. In the opening game of the tournament, Jones defeated McCulloch 47-38. The championship game matched Jones against Justice. Both teams came out tense and nervous. Jones then methodically pulled away on fast breaks and defense. Jones won easily 54-41 to win the city championship. Mr. Lowe stated simply after the game, " I feel great! That ' s all I can say. " Throughout the season Mr. Lowe started many players on the A-team. The players who started most often were: Rocky Adrianson, Todd Nukes, Stephen Dorsey, Tom Elkins, Sam Young, and Ron Peters. With the drastically changed schedule, Jones only lost to one new team: East Jay. Jones B-team was 2-2 on the year, including a season-ending win over McCulloch. The eighth graders were the only Jones team to win a basketball tourney.
