Student Life 














Published by the 
1972 CATAMOUNT Staff 

Sophomores and beanied freshmen go into hysterics over the 
antics of the judges, guilty persons, and prosecutors at Kangaroo 

Freshmen girls take a break from moving in and unpacking to ex- 
plore the campus and downtown Keyser. 

A new year begins 

Puffing men and women loaded with suitcases, 
trunks, and teddy bears reached their assigned 
dorms and plopped their loads down on the stripped 
beds in the barren-looking rooms. Strangers helped 
strangers unload their year's supply of crackers, 
peanut butter, and living essentials; and through 
helping each other, the strangers became friends. 
Sophomores heartily greeted old classmates and 
friends after a summer's separation. High school 
rivals forgot their differences as freshmen became 
accustomed to college life and united their efforts 
for Potomac State. Men and women from varied 
backgrounds and different areas came together and, 
thus, the school year 1971-72 began for the coed 
Potomac State College.

College life begins 

Students settled into a new life — college life — 
a world of study, sororities and fraternities, union- 
centered activities, and new friendships. Gone were 
the leisure days and early hours of high school work. 
Ignorance died as professors taught latest methods, 
philosophies, and literary works causing students 
to think and ideas to be born — ideas that in later 
years grew into living works of knowledge such as 
master theses. As the days passed by, each moment 
became a living memory or a treasured experience 
for the members of Potomac State.

A year's knowledge 
lasts an infinity 

From class to class the students went, learning new 
and different things in each one and yet accumulat- 
ing just a fraction of the infinite mass of knowledge 
in the world. At first everything seemed so uncon- 
nected and useless, and then it began to happen: 
students noticed that what was learned in one class 
could be used in another one and in daily situations. 
These things, learned and applied by the students, 
were passed on to each person the students came in 
contact with. Thus, knowledge gained at Potomac 
State during one year lasted an infinity.

n comes to the college on the hilltop. 

There was an empty hilltop in Keyser seventy years 
ago. Two buildings, the Administration Building and 
Davis Hall, arose on that hilltop; and the preppies 
went through it on their way to West Virginia Uni- 
versity barely noticed at first. Then in 1921, the 
school had gained so much recognition that it be- 
came a junior college and for fifty years has grown 
until today that hilltop has twelve buildings with 
planned landscaping and is no longer empty.

As enrollment increases, the college grows 

As the years rapidly passed, Potomac State College 
became more and more popular and gained the en- 
rollment of students from far-away states and coun- 
tries. With this increasing growth in enrollment and 
the needed additions to curriculum, the two-build- 
ing campus was no longer adequate; and more per- 
manent buildings were required. Reynolds Hall, 
which served as a classroom and a dormitory until 
the construction of the Science Hall, was the first 
of the women's dormitories to be built. Physical 
education classes, judo, ballroom dancing, and intra- 
mural sports called for a gym. The Student Union, 
hauled in from Camp Patrick Henry, met the need 
for a student activity center. Memorial Hall and 
Friend Hall, the modern dormitories, solved the 
boarding problems. Thus, necessity prodded the 
college into growth. 

Friend Hall, the modern dormitory, serves the girls with all the 
conveniences of today.

came more a part of the students' lives as 
they stepped into the college world, the 
adult and business world. Freshmen be- 
came accustomed to the awkward sound 
of being called on formally in class as Miss 
or Mister. Sophomores succumbed to the 
loss of informality again. Thus, students 
were lost in the masses; yet, each indivi- 
dual kept his identity, showed his emo- 
tions over victories and disappointments 
at games, dances, convocations, and in 
classes, and contributed according to his 
personality to make college life student

Registration is the beginning 


P N 

The end of registration brings the start of classes. 

Registration was the entire beginning of the long 
year ahead. It began early and lasted late. After 
meeting teachers and other students, talking with 
advisers, getting class tickets, paying for the 
schooling, and last but not least, getting college ID 
cards, frustrated students rested in the dorms and 
sought used and new books on campus. Registration 
day, a day to be remembered and dreaded by the 
students each semester, finally was over and classes 

"Don't tell me that class is closed, too!" 

"Dancing is a good way to get acquainted; so don't just stand there; dance!" 

Freshman Week is the indoctrination 

There were several activities planned during 
Freshman Week to help bring the new students out 
of their shyness. Activities such as plays, concerts, 
shows, and movies were planned to prevent bore- 
dom. A get-acquainted dance was held on Wednes- 
day of Freshman Week; from then on no one was 
lonesome. The first performance of the Faculty 
Follies gave students a glimpse of their teachers. 

"Let's raise the spirits and cheer the Cats to victory!" chant the en

Homecoming was the time of year when all past 
graduates returned to Potomac State College cam- 
pus to see their old friends and the changes in the 
grounds. Some of the activities held during the 
Homecoming weekend of the 50th" year of P.S.C. 
were a bonfire and a pep rally on Friday night. Sat- 
urday's activities began with the parade at 10:30 a.m., 
followed by a reception at the Union for the Alumni 
and friends. The game got underway at 2:00 p.m. and 
ended in a victory with a score of 57-6 against the 
Marshall University Freshman Team. The evening 
was iced by a Victory Dance sponsored by the Stu- 
dent Government.

if in the light. Then a fuse blew, throwing the actors 
into darkness and the audience into light. The play 
ended with the lights reconnected (with a dark

Christmas season brightens up the campus 

As exam time and the end of the semester ap- 
proached, students found happiness and excite- 
ment in preparing for the Christmas season. Blinking 
lights and candles appeared in dorm windows, and 
packages were found under miniature trees in many 
dorm rooms. Christmas cheer was spread by organi- 
zational Christmas and caroling parties. The Christ- 
mas star shone from atop the library, and students 
joined in the cafeteria and dormitory decorating. 
Also included in the Christmas activities was the 
annual Christmas Concert given by the Singers and 
the Stage Band.

Academic staff gives 
P.S.C. high standing 

Teachers rushed to the Union for cof- 
fee after their unresponsive eight o'clock 
classes and then hurried back to the class- 
rooms for the rest of the day. The admin- 
istrative staff busily processed financial 
papers, met prospective students, listened 
to student problems, and planned campus 
improvements. During the day these 
faculty and administrative members, rep- 
resenting a significant cross-section of the 
country and broad educational abilities, 
imparted their knowledge and experi- 
ences to the students in the classrooms 
and in organizational meetings. Thus 
went a day in the lives of the academic 
staff, known for making Potomac State 
College among the top junior colleges 
in the nation.

dents in order to assure them of two years to make it 
in college. Mr. Lowell Markey served as director of 
the program, and there were five tutor-counselors 
under him who were available in the various resi- 
dence buildings 24 hours a day. In addition, the 
Counseling Center handled clinical testing. The pro- 
gram was a flexible one which began with approxi- 
mately 45 students. Ninety-five per cent of the group 
were accepted by the college to begin with, though 
they may have been "underachieves" whose po- 
tential indicated they could do better work. In addi- 
tion to personal counseling given the students to 
help them select portions of a total educational pro-

program also provided assistance with career place-

Students earn class 
rank through study 

Whispered questions for directions and 
help disturbed the library quiet where 
freshmen and sophomores feverishly 
studied for tests, discussions, or exams. 
Although classified as freshmen or soph- 
omores on the basis of the credit hours 
earned, students shared the same classes 
depending upon their majors; and class 
rank became only a goal for students. 
Freshmen longed for the time when they 
would be sophomores and could make 
fun of the beanied freshmen and initiate 
them into college life and organizations. 
Sophomores anxiously awaited the day 
when their studies would result in gradua- 
tion and rank as a junior in a four-year 
college or a good job.

The 1971-72 school year got underway as the soph- 
omores took over their roles as heads of Student 
Government, clubs, and other campus organiza- 
tions. They remembered their problems of the pre- 
vious year as they helped the freshmen get settled 
in the dorms and into college life. The new class offi- 
cers introduced the freshmen to Potomac State life, 
campus organizations, and teachers during Fresh- 
man Week. Registration was one of the first duties 
of the sophomores as they helped with scheduling, 
paying of fees, and issuing of I.D. cards. Freshman 
Week and Kangaroo Court were two activities which 
the sophomore class was in charge of enforcing. 
At Homecoming the sophomores were represented 
by their third-place, winning float and by the Queen 
and her attendants. As sorority and fraternity actives, 
sophomores started off "Hell Week" by initiating 
the unfortunate pledges. The Sophomore class came 
into the 1971-72 year with many new ideas and in- 
tentions of making their last year at Potomac State

The freshman class officers: Donald Miller, Becky Day, Dennis Bowyer, Jeny Lamonica, and Sam Lopez. 

Freshmen take active part in college life 


Jeny Lamonica plays baby at the Friend Hall Halloween party. 

The step from adolescence to adulthood has been 
taken as each freshman tries to fit into the busy 
schedule of college life. The freshmen started their 
busy year with Freshman Orientation where they, 
were introduced to the faculty, the sophomore class 
officers, the Student Government, and life at Po- 
tomac State College. After the shuffle of registration 
and the start of classes the freshmen began to settle 
in the mold of their new life. Freshman Week and 
Kangaroo Court were the final steps in inaugurating 
freshmen as Potomac State students. The freshman 
class won first place with their carving in the Hallo- 
ween pumpkin contest. Hell Week, another event 
centered around freshmen, provided many laughs 
as the Greeks initiated their pledges. The newly 
elected officers of the freshman class began right 
away to make themselves heard in the Student 
Government and played a vital part in the running 
of the college. Despite the hardships of adjusting 
to college life the freshmen succeeded in carving 
a notch for themselves in the life of Potomac State

Judo, the CATAMOUNT staff, the New- 
man Club, Band, Student Government, 
and various other organizations offered 
extracurricular work, relaxation, and en- 
joyment. Interest, participation, and 
regular attendance were the only require- 
ments. Dorm students and commuters 
became better acquainted by working 
together in campus organizations. The 
campus came alive with dances, pumpkin 
carvings, parties, campus and environ- 
mental improvements and all the other 
activities the imaginative members of the 
clubs could think of. The organizations 
were where the action was, and all those 
living their lives to the fullest belonged 
to them.

Student Government abolishes Freshman Rules 

The Student Government, the governing order of 
the Student Body, was the center of activity on cam- 
pus. With its representatives from all groups and 
organizations, it was responsible for the manage- 
ment of all affairs that affected the students. Its 
duties were to promote school spirit and to provide 
for a good relationship between students and fac- 
ulty. Starting at registration, the Student Govern- 
ment welcomed freshmen, served as guides, dis- 
tributed Freshman Rules, sold beanies, and 
sponsored a watermelon feast and a dance in the 
Student Union. This year's Student Government 

decided to discontinue the traditional "Freshman 
Week." Next year, instead of devoting time to the 
harassment of new students, the Student Govern- 
ment will use this time to promote school spirit and 
unite the Student Body. Throughout the year the 
government worked on campus activities such as 
Homecoming weekend, student entertainment, and 
campus issues: intervisitation in the dorms, ID cards 
for admission to the Student Union, and the aboli- 
tion of Saturday classes. Mr. Nuzum and Mr. Pear- 
man served as sponsors for the group. 

Paulette Woomer, Debbie Holt, and Sue Nicol help make decorations for the Homecoming dance.

Potomac State Band takes on new look 

The Potomac State Band was a credit course open to any student with previous band experience. For the sec- 
ond consecutive year the band was organized during Freshman Week in order to provide entertainment and to 
acquaint students with the band program at Potomac State. During the first quarter of the year, the band con- 
centrated on light literature suitable for playing at football games. The band also assumed some of the march- 
ing duties formerly carried out by the R.O.T.C. Band, such as the Homecoming Parade and half-time shows at 
the football games. The band was uniformed for the first time with blazers purchased by the school and white 

trousers purchased by the students. In the second 
quarter the band presented a Christmas concert. In 
the spring the band presented a concert, went on 
tour to neighboring high schools, and played for 
the Executive's review of the R.O.T.C. Cadet Corps. 
The band was directed by Dr. Charles Whitehill.

Stage Band entertains 
in W. Va. state capital 

An additional note to campus life was added by 
the Potomac State College Stage Band, a credit 
course open to students possessing the playing skills 
needed for performing jazz-rock music. Twice 
weekly rehearsals provided the members the op- 
portunity to gain proficiency in the performance 
of many types of dance-band music. Several ar- 
rangers in the area as well as the director, Dr. Charles 
Whitehill, provided current tunes for the band to 
perform. During the first semester the Stage Band 
performed for a guidance conference held on the 
campus, a Future Homemakers Convention, Parents' 
Day, the meeting of the West Virginia Association 
of Colleges and Universities held in Charleston, and 
the annual Campus Showcase. The spring semester 
was highlighted by the annual spring concert and the 
tour to high schools in West Virginia.

a mixed chorus open to all students by audition. 
The group performed both sacred and secular choral 
literature chosen from the works of the earliest mas- 
ters to those of present day. Performance respon- 
sibilities of the Singers included the Christmas 
program (given in a special performance for the 
general public), the Spring program, and the series 
of tours presented to high school audiences 
throughout West Virginia and neighboring states. 
Frequently, the Singers were called on to perform 
at various other college programs and functions. 
The year's activities closed with the Singers' per- 
formance in Sermon and Commencement. Mr. 
Richard Davis directed the Singers, and Valerie Gray- 
son was accompanist while Mrs. Davis was awaiting 
the arrival of their 'first'.

Military men earn 
Roth standing 

The Roth Military Honorary Society was organized 
to recognize students enrolled in ROTC who had 
maintained a high scholastic standing in Military 
Science and in other academic endeavors and who 
had displayed moral integrity and showed a genuine 
interest in the military establishment. 

During the first semester, Roth held an initiation 
for new members and entered a float in the Home- 
coming Parade. Activities in the second semester 
were the election of new ROTC sponsors, the invi- 
tation to freshmen members for the following year, 
and the sponsorship of the annual Military Ball.

md Greg Zearfoss about the support that they have gained from Potomac State College. 

West Virginia Student Public Interest Research 
Group, a brainchild of consumer protection leader, 
Ralph Nader, was introduced to the Potomac State 
campus this year. When enacted, students in West 
Virginia through student allocations will direct a 
full time staff of lawyers, natural and social scientists, 
engineeers and other professionals to work on 
changes in the areas of consumer protection, en- 
vironmental quality, and other social problems. 

The group's activities included environmental 
tours of Westvaco, VEPCO, and the Bloomington 
Dam construction area. It also sponsored the visit 
of ecologist "Wild Bill" Cohen, a program entitled 
"Westvaco and the Environment," a visit by VEPCO 
representatives, a visit of Nader's attorney, Davitt 
McAteer, and a visit by Jay Rockefeller.

Breathless, smiling faces of children at the Burling-

the Developmental Center were the rewards of the 
members of Insight for Action. This group, whose 
goal is to help people, traveled to Burlington in the 
fall and spring to play games with the children in the 
Home there. Members also gave a few hours each 
week to help in the Developmental Center on cam- 
pus. Other activities included volunteer work at 
Keyser Elementary School and St. Frances School 
and a car wash at George's American Service Station. 
The group met every Wednesday with Professor 
William Edel as sponsor.

Pasquino Staff strives 
to inform readers 

The Pasquino, in its fifty-first year, informed 
readers of interesting campus and local news. The 
paper provided a "letters to the editor" column 
and a guest editorial column, in which the student 
body could express their views. 

The paper appeared every two weeks except 
during holidays and examinations periods. It was 
mailed to students' parents, alumni, and friends of 
the college. 

The Pasquino was an organ of the journalism de- 
partment of which Dr. Elizabeth Atwater was ad- 
viser. Non-journalism students were able to be Pas- 
quino members by joining the business and circu- 
lation staffs.

ment affairs pertaining to their halls. The WRA 
Council, composed of members from both women's 
dorms, strove to draw the two dorms closer to- 
gether and to set up and to enforce the rules for 
both dormitories. The WRA Council also discussed 
a new constitution which would involve commuting

The Men's Residence Council, first formed in 1934, 
was composed of representatives elected from the

Homemakers come up 
to a first-place float 

Bibbed overalls, granny gowns,' mini skirts, and 
bell bottoms revealed the span of time of Potomac 
State College's existence on the first-prize-winning 
float built by the Home Economics and Agricultural 
chapters for the Homecoming parade. This float 
along with the usual sale of mums and corsages was 
the Home Economics girls contribution to Home- 
coming. The chapter, affiliated with both the West 
Virginia and American Home Economics Associa- 
tions, strived to promote interest in all fields of home 
economics in its meetings and activities. Besides the 
float and mum sale, the chapter sponsored a Christ- 
mas party for needy six-year-olds and provided the 
children with presents, games, refreshments, and a 
visit from Santa. The chapter went national with its 
election of Faye Pilling to run for secretary of the 
American Home Economics Association. 

The theme, "You've come a long way baby," shows the difference between the "good old days" and 
modern times on the prize-winning float.

Circle K celebrates 
its 20th year 

The Potomac State College Circle K Club, one of 
818 clubs in the United States and Canada today, re- 
ceived its charter from Kiwanis International on 
May 14, 1952. The local club, the 33rd organized in 
the United States, became an international organ- 
ization in 1956. Since its formation in 1952, the club 
has attained for itself a most reputable reputation 
both on the campus and in the community of Keyser. 
This reputation was not inherited but earned 
through the efforts of its members. A tradition of 
leadership and of service to the campus and the 
community has evolved for Circle K members with 
service the greater of these. During its 20 years of 
existence almost 850 Potomac State College men 
have lived up to the Circle K motto, "WE BUILD."

be adapted to the leisure time of later school. The 
association was organized to popularize women's 
athletics, and to provide leisure time activities. Some 
of this year's intramural games were bowling, volley- 
ball, basketball, ping-pong, badminton, shuffleboard 
and golf.

judo Club challenges 
Altoona YMCA chapter 

The thumping of bodies on mats, the scraping of 
fingernails on judo gis and the scratching of toe- 
nails on opponent's feet were the many sounds of 
Potomac State's newest sport — judo. The Potomac 
State College Judo Club, organized last year under 
the direction of Mr. Ed Hartman, entered its second 
year with a sharp increase in membership. 

After many hours of practice, the club held an 
intersquad match in October. On December 10 the 
club traveled to Altoona and met the Altoona YMCA 
judo Chapter. Second semester the campus club 
joined the United States Judo Federation and work- 
ed towards the degrees of the belt. 

Judo club champions for 1971 were: Beth Fazza- 
lore, 105-119 weight class; Margie Anglin, 120-up; 
Dennis Shreve, 130-149; Bob Dewhurst, 150-169; 
Tom Acree, 170-189; Randall Ballard, 190-up. Wo- 
men's division champion was Margie Anglin, while 
men's division champion was Dennis Shreve.

Greeks provide social 
and family life 

Being away from home and brothers 
and sisters, dorm students were provided 
big sisters and big brothers by the Greek 
organizations. All one had to do was ac- 
cept the bid he received from a Greek 
organization during Rush Week, and he 
became a member of that Greek family. 
There was no need for homesickness or 
loneliness with the closeness of the mem- 
bers of each sorority and each fraternity. 
Members of each Greek family were kept 
busy with Homecoming floats, dances, 
slave sales, parties, meetings, and various 
other activities. Sororities and fraternities, 
through the coordination of the Panhel- 
lenic Council, initiated new members 
during a designated Hell Week.

brothers eat together 

Phi Kappa Omega, organized in 1949 to develop 
leadership qualities, to build moral character, and 
to promote good scholarship, began its year with 
its annual Rush Party and initiation of pledges. So- 
cial activities for the brothers of this fraternity in- 
cluded the building of a Homecoming float, spon- 
soring parties, and dining together at Warner's.

second place in parade 

Besides helping build a winning float, the Gammas 
assisted their brother fraternity with 'Purple Haze 
parties, the November 20 Harvest Ball, of which 
member Debbie Ervin was Queen, and the slave 
sale. The sorority reached out in helping the fra- 
ternity adopt an American Indian child and in help- 
ing with the parties for the children of the Develop- 
mental Center. Meeting as a coed group, Gammas 
and Thetas planned and carried out their activities

"We" meet together 

Theta Sigma Chi held coed meetings with its so- 
rority, Eta Upsilon Gamma, in an attempt to create a 
better and happier organization known by the mem- 
bers as "we." Thetas began their year with their 
semester Rush Party held at the Heritage House with 
entertainment by Scott Rogan and Brad Daugherty. 
The fraternity showed its school support in its Home- 
coming activities: election of Miss Catamount and a 
second-place Homecoming float. School support 
also was demonstrated in participation in intramu- 
rals and in the formation of the Coffee House, com- 
petition in the pumpkin-carving contest, the spon- 
sorship of the Harvest Dance with member Brad 
Daugherty as King, sponsorship of the annual 
Christmas Dance with "Wasp" playing and special 
guest, Santa Claus. Social events included Purple 
Haze parties with bands such as "Liquid Smoke," 
"King Rat," "Sounds of Soul," "Addicts," "Flutter," 
and "Fox"; a camping trip to Smoke Hole; a trip to 
the Old German Brewery; Halloween and Christmas 
parties for the children of the Developmental 
Center; a slave sale of members; and a number of 
Smokers' parties.

Sigma pledges show their ingenuity in constructing costume attire as they model their outfits. 

- fc \v kBht ! *' '2 Met f 


During Hell Week, the Sigma pledges come out in full force on "Halloween Day." 

Sigma lota Chi 
inducts thirty pledges 

The 1971 Fall Rush Party was held on September 
22, with thirty pledges being received into the 
sorority. Certain days during Hell Week were set off 
as "Ugly Day," "Halloween Day," "Rat Day," and 
"Dress-up Day." Each day the pledges met in the 
Union to recite their Rat Cogitation. Hell Week end- 
ed with a scavenger hunt on Thursday night. For the 
Homecoming parade, the Sigmas built a float in the 
shape of a party favor with an anniversary card. At 
Thanksgiving the sorority gave a Thanksgiving 
basket to a needy family. Other activities included 
a White Elephant sale, pizza sales, a Sweetheart Ball, 
and the annual initiation dinner.

Team work makes the 
Catamounts grrreat 

From the sunny but chilly days of foot- 
ball, to the stuffiness of the gym during 
basketball season, to the warm, lazy days 
of spring and baseball, the Catamounts 
were practicing and working to become 
undefeatable teams. Each member, al- 
though making records of his own and 
doing his own thing, conditioned himself 
to think and act, not as an individual, but 
as part of one whole team. Dressed in the 
school's colors, the players strived for 
team uniformity — uniformity like that of 
their blue and gold attire. Then as vic- 
tory after victory stacked up, the result 
of their harmonious efforts became evi- 
dent, and everyone agreed that the 
Catamounts had a great year.

Season Rundown 

Coach Cecil Perkins' Catamounts finished their 
1971 football season with a record of five wins against 
four losses. Improving over their 1-6-1 show dur- 
ing the 1970 season, the Cats achieved five straight 
wins before losing their last four. The last time the 
Cats ever surmounted a 5-4 season was in 1961. It has 
been eleven years since the Cats have had a five- 
game winning streak or better. In the 1959 season 
the men from Pot State won the last five games of 
their season. 

The first game of the season began in Bel Air, Md., 
where the Cats won a not so decisive victory over 
Harford Junior College. The final score of the game 
was 21 to 14. This made victory number one for Poto- 
mac State. 

On September 25, the Pot State eleven met the 
much favored Chowan College at Staymen Field. 
Little did they know that this would be number two 
in a row for the Cats as they downed the Braves by 
a score of 27 to 23. 

With two victories under their belts they traveled 
to Dover, Delaware, as the still underrated team. 
But they pulled -together again for victory number 
three and handed Wesley Junior College a defeat. 
The Cats reigned supreme at 22 to 14. 

Victory number four floated unresistingly into 
Potomac State's arms as the Cats mercifully drubbed 
the young freshman herd from Marshall University 
by the tune of 57 to 0. Coach Perkins substituted 
freely in the second half of the game, with the only 
surmountable effort from the herd coming late in 
the last quarter when Sherwood received a pass 
from Marshall QB Coleman at the 50 and was down- 
ed by Phil Hughes, who overcame Sherwood's 15 
yard head start at the Cats' 18 yard line. 

The fifth and final victory of the season came when 
the Cats traveled to Rockville, Md., where Potomac 
State handed Montgomery Junior College a 27 to 6 

The sixth game of the season ended in a loss for 
Potomac State as the Ferrum eleven "slid" by the 
Cats in a "sea of mud" at the Virginia field. The final 
score was fourteen to six, a small but decisive eight 
point lead. 

With a five-one record the Cats lost their second 
game as the Red Devils of Baltimore Junior College 
crawled by 31 to 29. 

In what was to be a "no contest" game for West 
Virginia Frosh, the Catamounts exposed their 
tiger claws as the Little Mountaineers edged by Poto- 
mac State 50 to 43. 

At five and three, the Catamounts went into the 
ninth and final game hoping to top the strong Lees 
McRae lineup. The Cats just didn't get it together, 
and the L-M powerhouse made use of the fact by 
flushing the Cats right out of their system. The score 
of the finale was 49 to 20. 

During the season the record of the Cata- 
mounts earned them the number ten position in the 
National Junior College Athletic Association 
ranks. The Cats last four games took them from the 
number ten to the number nineteen spot before 
being dropped from the standings. 

N.J.C.A.A. Statistics 

The Catamounts tied the Wesley Junior College 
team from Dover, Delaware, for fourth place in the 
conference. They both finished with records of three 
wins against three losses. Eddie Williams set a con- 
ference passing record with a total of three hundred 
ninety-eight yards. 

Potomac State led in conference scoring with a 
total of two hundred fifty-two points. Potomac State 
averaged 28 points per game. Ferrum was second 
with two hundred forty-nine. They averaged 27.6 
points per game. Potomac State gave up the most 
points at two hundred, with Wesley giving up the 
least with seventy. 

Potomac State trailed in team passing, 172.5 yards, 
to a 197.3 show by Baltimore, and was third in total 
yards per game with 313.1, behind Baltimore's 389.7 
and Ferrum's 346.7. 

In the area of interception, Jerry Raffel and Danny 
Doleman tied with J. Mudd of Lees-McRae for sec- 
ond place as they each had five. They were outdone 
by the lone Nash of Baltimore, who had six. Dole- 
man missed half of the season. 

Hughes and Skinner were among the pass re- 
ceiving leaders, Hughes pulling in 33 and Skinner 31, 
the latter having 505 yards to Hughes 454. 

Hughes ranked second in kick-off returns with 10 
for 259 yards, behind Baltimore's Rucci who had 16 
for 468 yards. 

Phil Hughes, assisted by Steve Stinson, raises the score seven more 

Eddie Williams works on his 398 yard per game conference record. 

Coach Perkins calls for more action!

Cats win a few, lose 
a few in 71-72 season 

Potomac State opened its basketball season with 
a 85-79 victory over Shenandoah College. Jerry Black 
was high scorer with 17 points with four other mem- 
bers scoring in double figures. The Cats continued 
their winning ways by bombing Montgomery Junior 
College by a score of 90-67. It wasn't three in a row 
for P.S.C. when after a bad break they lost to Altoona 
79-76. Two nights later Allegany Community College 
found the Cat offense vulnerable in the second half 
and fought back from a fifteen-point deficit to suc- 
cumb the Cats, 76-74. The basketmen came through 
with a tighter defense in the Hagerstown Junior Col- 
lege match to give P.S.C. a 57-47 victory. Despite a 
31-point performance by Black, Altoona got their re- 
venge in our second match with them with a 92-88 
score over the Cats. Coach Bolyard substituted 
liberally against the weak Kirkland Hall squad giving 
the Cats their fourth win with a 100-47 score. Alle- 
gheny of Pittsburgh was under the paw of the Cat for 
the entire game as Potomac State won with a 91-81 
score. W.V.U. freshmen met the enemy, the Cats, 
when they journeyed to Potomac State with a 80-68 
victory for the Little Mountaineers. Allegany did 
it again with the Catamounts suffering a 81-67 de- 
feat. As if two in a row wasn't bad enough, the 
W.V.U. freshmen made it three consecutive defeats 
for P.S.C. with a 79-51 score. P.S.C. ended its losing 
steak with a walloping 94-62 victory over Charles 
County. The rally continued when P.S.C. made its 
highest point total of the year against Montgomery 
of Rockville with a 101-93 win. Games with Anne 
Arundel, West Point Academy, Essex, Catonsville, 
Wesley, Shenandoah, Ohio Valley, and Allegheny 
of Pittsburgh were yet to be played at the time of 
this printing. 

Ken Halstead puts the Cats on the offensive. 

Anthony Fragale is on the move. 

Larry Amodio demonstrates his typical hustle. 

Local merchants 
support CATAMOUNT 

Yearbooks, shoes, clothes, pizzas, gas, 
snacks, school supplies, and diamonds 
were just a few of the products provided 
the students by the merchants of the tri- 
state area. Campus and studies were left 
behind as students visited downtown Key- 
ser or Cumberland stores to browse and 
shop for the one special item that they 
needed or desired. Local merchants and 
store clerks heartily greeted college peo- 
ple with friendly, courteous service and 
made them feel at home by cashing per- 
sonal checks. Students supported the 
surrounding businesses through their 
purchases of merchandise, and these 
businesses in return showed their support 
of Potomac State College through the 
purchase of advertisements in the 1972

Students face 
the foggy future 

Another winter term at Potomac State 
College ended. The students stepped on 
into their uncertain, foggy futures. The 
men and women that came together in 
August, 1971, grew and changed, ex- 
perienced life and death, and went forth 
to face the future and infinity. The 
school year 1971-72 was filled with vic- 
tories, learning, disappointments, and 
sadness, which the Catamount Staff re- 
corded in pictures and copy. The staff 
hereby wishes to thank the faculty and 
staff for their cooperation, and to thank 
all those who, in any way, contributed 
to the publication of this book. A special 
thanks goes to Mrs. Coffman, Mrs. 
Golden, Dr. Atwater, and Brady Miller 
for their help.
