Great year on the court for Bobcats in 1981-82

The Bobcats were at their best inside Whiteford Gymnasium in 1981-82.

Whiteford’s boys and girls basketball teams brought home TCC championships and the volleyball team reached the state semifinals.

It was a unique year for several reasons. The Bobcats had no track team but Adam Gibson qualified for the 3200 anyway while running on a one-man team. Whiteford’s John Rice earned statewide attention, leading the Bobcats from a 5-win team in 1980-81 to 19 wins and a state Coach of the Year award.

On the softball diamond, the Bobcats made the short drive to Bedford and was the class of the prestigious Bedford Softball Invitational, winning the event that featured mainly Class A schools.
