When people start talking about the
Brevard College baseball team, the first
thing that comes to their minds is
Brevard’s recent success. In Coach Rusty
Stroupe’s second season he has already
led his teani to a 22-6 record in the last
two months. With a very well
disciplined and hard working team, they
hope to be ranked in the nation after
next week.
Brevard hosted Cuyouga in a
doubleheader on Thursday, March 31.
The two teams seemed very well
matched throughout the game. Benji
Gecy hit the game-winning shot down
the middle to end the game at 6-5. Chad

The Dream Team came into the
season as the favored team and walked
out as the champs. You have to give
some credit to Coast to Coast for
actually giving the Dreamers a game.
The closest game the Dream Team got
was a regular season match up with
Golf team has limited success

Coast to Coast. They won by almost
30. Coast to Coast finished second,
Reeb Straf finished third, and Pablo’s
Posse finished in fourth place. Thanks
to all of the other teams for
participating, and congratulations to the
Dream Team. We look forward to
another season of Intramural Basketball
next year.

The Brevard College golf team
traveled to Orangebury, S.C., this past
weekend, and played in their second
tournament. The tournament was the
Dawson Invitational and it was hosted
by South Carolina State. Many top
teams from around the area were there
including Davidson, Western Carolina,
and The Citadel.
The tournament was played at
Hillcrest Country Club. It was a par 72
layout, and the course played about
6.700 vards.
The team struggled the first day, but
brought in a couple at pretty good
scores. Billy Hendrix turned one of the
finest scores, shooting a 75. With the
weather sunny, and the temperatui-e m
the seventies, the second day was a hule
better. The team placed two players
among the top players m the
tournament Billy Hendrix again turned
in one of the day’s top scores, firing a
75 Jeff Durham also turned in a top
score, firing his best score of the
tournament, a 79. Billy Hendnx played
his best golf all year, and placed seven*
overall. The next trip for the team is the

Newton was the winning pitcher for the
first game. In the second game, Brian
McGinnis came to the plate and hit a
single, and Brevard took an 8-7 win
with that hit. Jason Smith got this win
with a very well-pitched ball game.
In the game on Saturday, April 2,
against Anderson, the Tornados played
another doubleheader. The team put up a
good effort, but lost 5-3. In the second
game, there was a whole other story.
Brian McGinnis led off the game with a
single shot home run. Steve Sanders
pitched a shut out, and the team went on
to win 8-0.
Coach Stroupe said, “The biggest
part of the season is coming up and I
hope the fans will come out and support
us.”

Coach David Rinker described Brevard’s
latest meet, held over the weekend of
April 9-10, as simply “one of the best
meets we have ever competed in.”
Freshman Jeremy Rodgers finished
sixth overall in the 5000m with a ume
of 14:24. That time qualified Rodgers
for the nationals and was the third
fastest time clocked in the 5000m in BC
history. It was also the fastest time of
any Junior College runner in the
counuy this season.
Jason Yuknus finished eleventh in
the 1500m with a time good enough to
qualify for the nationals. It was the
seventh fastest 1500m run in Brevard
history and it was also the fastest ume
clocked by a Junior College runner in
the country this year.
Anne Gaines also qualified for Uie
nationals while running the 5000m in
18:06. This was the fourth fastest ume
in school history. Charles Filler had
respectable ninth place finishes m both
the javelin and discus. With over 40
other schools, and Brevard being just
one of two Junior Colleges, this truly
was a successful meet fw Brevard.
