October 21, 1983 The Lance Coots Continue Winning Ways By Kim Wallace Coming off of a “not so suc cessful” tournament during fall break, the Coots regain ed their strength and are back to their winning ways as they wound up a most suc cessful week and head into what they hope to be a repeat of the same. Tuesday night’s game against North Carolina Wesleyan started their winning streak as they beat the conference team 15-4, 15-6, 15-10. They then played host to Averett and Meredith on Thursday, October 13th winning handi ly over Averett 15-4, 15-9, 15-11. Meredith did not show where as the Knights earned both matches through default. As the 1:00 p.m. feature for the Fall Sports Extravagan za, the Coots gave both fans and parents a great showing as they easily defeated both Chrisptopher Newport 15-8, 15-4, 11-15, 15-9 and Newberry College 15-6 and 15-9. The team was not without their share of outstanding players this week as four of the girls had exceptionally good hitting averages and service aces which aided the Coots to easily overcome their opposi tion. Among these four is this week’s number one player (as cited by Coach Williams), Melanie Wren. Melanie had started as a setter last year, but has overcome various problems over the summer, and has now worked back to starting position. “She’s done a fantastic job this week,” stated Coach Wiliams. It’s great to see her getting out there and really hitting.” Her hitting average for the week was .315 with seven service aces and one solo block to her credit. Hunter Wingate also had an exceptional week as did Kelly Aker. Hunter not only im proved in her hitting, but she improved in her defense as well. Her hitting average for Calls Make Difference By Kim Wallace Despite some questionable calls by the officials and some unsportsman-like con duct of the opposition, the Knights displayed a tremen dous show of skill and effort in their sudden death match against the Citadel Saturday afternoon. game, there was a lot of ten sion between the two teams which was evident by the several calls made by the of ficials - many of which were questioned by players and fans. One of these was the call-back of a goal scored by Paul Franzoni. Others in cluded several offside calls as well as the issuance of a few yellow cards. The highlight of the Fall Sports Extravanagza was well attended as both fans and parents filled the extra bleachers and gave the team a lot of support that was well appreciated by the team members. The first half was a very defensive one as both St. An drews and the Citadel prevented each other from scoring, although there were many close calls. After half time, however, the weight changed as the Citadel snuck a goal past the Knight defense, leaving the score 1-0. This did not stop the Knights, however, as they came back twice as strong and under the skills of Bob Levey, were able to score against Citadel. During this time until the end of the ^ H St. Andrews Ladies Volleyball Team In Action the week was .442, and she also had seven service aces and one solo block. Kelly im proved primarily in hitting as she went .364 and .333 in two of the top games and also had seven service aces. Eva Pittman continued to play consistently well as she has a .352 hitting average, 10 service aces and six solo blocks for the week. The combined hitting average of the team this week was .318. After regular game time was over and “sudden death” was invoked, the Citadel again charged down the field and scored; however, that goal was also one of the several ‘ ‘ questionable calls” made that afternoon as Scott Dormire appeared to have saved the ball in time, but the officials deemed otherwise— Despite these problems, the Knights put on a tremendous show of team effort that has been unmatched so far this year. It was also an en couraging performance for them to build upon in their final two weeks of regular season play. Their next match is against Francis Marion on Tuesday, October 18th and against Greensboro College on Saturday, Oc tober 22nd. As for the weeks ahead. Coach Williams is very op timistic. “We are playing very well now - more as a team than individually. We’re concentrating more on defense and hitting now than before, and it has paid off,” stated Coach Williams. The Coots travel to Meredith on Monday, October 17th and then go on to the Coastal Carolina Tournament this weekend which should have, in Williams’ estimation, “some heavy competition”. St. Andrews and Greensboro College are the only two of the eight teams that are not scholarship teams. The Coots will be (in their divi sion) against four South Carolina teams in round- robin competition, and if they play well, may go into a single elimination match with the top two teams of each division participating. Best of luck to the Coots! Notebook Continued from Page 2 Special Events Committee, the latter three being com mittees of the faculty.

Winning Season For Harriers By Brigitte Tomasovic The St. Andrews harriers have proven themselves with a successful season thus far. Coach Blackwell is pleased with the team’s perfor mances. The boys themselves have been working hard in practices. This effort is evi dent in the season record of 5-2. Drew Cheney has done an ex cellent job of running in the number one spot. The rest of the team follows close behind to form a solid pack. The en tire field has been rapidly im proving its overall times. The most recent meet was held here Saturday, October 15, with the St. Andrews team soundly defeating Methodist College. The next meet is a large invitational held at the Citadel Saturday, October 22. Hopefully the team will place well. They will ultimately be looking ahead for Regions and Districts at Christopher Newport.
