Evolution of Scoring Records

Jimmy Shaffer (front row, second from right) scored "an unheard of" 305 points  for the Orioles in 1927 and followed that up with a 308-point campaign in 1928.

Other Numbers of Note

All-stater Isaac Clayton went 22-for-22 from the foul line the night he scored 39 points in 2022 against Mercer. He ran his streak to at least 25 straight the next game...Larry Mackey had been credited with a 44-point game, but it came in the Franklin YMCA tournament in March...Dawn Cauvel once had 27 rebounds in a game...The Grove's first basketball title ever came in 1945 when the Orioles claimed the Bi-County League...Dave Friggle collected 25 rebounds in a game during the 1964-65 season, and in that same contest, Butch Koziara hit seven of eight shots from 30 feet...Fred Porter scored 38 points in a December 1963 game and then added a 39-point game later on that season...The Orioles have surprised a lot of teams in their day (can you say Meadville?) including Kennedy Catholic, which saw its 65-game conference winning streak ended at the Grove, 63-60, on Feb. 15, 2010...

Visiting Mercer was 41/56 from the foul line when it beat the Orioles, 71-69, on Feb. 8, 1957...

Yearbook said Dave Friggle averaged 18 rebounds a game for the 17-3 league champs...

Turns out Jimmy Shaffer "really" held the Grove's single-season scoring record with 305 points in 1927...

The Orioles ended Mercer's domination for the Tri-County League, dethroning the Mustangs in 1965...The first year for the league was 1941...

One of the things that hurt  players when the "modern era" of girls basketball began in the early 1970s was lack of games. Case in point: Rocky Grove's Teresa Weaver, the Orioles' star from 1979-81. She scored 609 points, but played in only 50 games...The Orioles posted their best record to date her senior year in 1981, 14-5 under coach Bill Gabrys. Her sophomore year they beat Oil City AT Oil City...Recently discovered: Pam Weaver has the school record for most points in a season with 397 in 1982. It was thought the mark belonged to Dawn Cauvel with 394 in 1986...

After winning the District 10 Class B title in 1947, the Orioles took on unbeaten (23-0) Karns City, and dropped a 33-31 decision to the taller Gremlins. Karns City then received a bye into the western finals...

The Orioles played home games at the Franklin Armory through the 1939 season before moving into the new high school building in 1940. The Orioles were 5-13 in their final season at The Armory, but things might have been better had Calvin Osborne and Don Loughery had not moved away and erstwhile baseball star Walt Graham not missed the season with a leg injury. (Doctor said he could played baseball that spring). As it turned out, though, Paul King, a first-year player, led the Grove in scoring with 70 points that season (still short three games). Coach Reid Pierce came to the Grove from Youngsville...

Oops: Coach Reid Pierce started reserves and lost a Dec. 13, 1938, game to Rockland...

First time the Grove beat Franklin twice in one season? 1935-36.

Jack Eakin's record 31-point game in 1936-37 came during a 61-3 romp over Cranberry. The Orioles blasted Rimersburg 77-3 in 1932.

Rocky Grove did field a team as early as 1915. The Orioles beat Titusville, 28-22, on Dec. 3.
