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

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!

This is actually the first time
after several years that so
meone has volunteered to
help the groups. Fred Henley
hopes that it will continue
year after year. He also ex
pressed, “The clients in the
home do not have many op
portunities to meet people, in
order to function on their
own.” The Mental Health
Committee has a Thanksgiv
ing dinner and a Halloween
party planned for the clients.
There is an upcoming project
to work with mentally retard-
ed teenagers. More
volunteers are being sought
to work with the group
homes. The committee meet
each Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. in
Belk Lounge and if addi
tional information is needed,
contact Cynthia Stevenson,
Box 760.
Meanwhile, the C.C.U.
strongly encourages you to
participate in the Sunday
night Vesper services at 7:00
p.m. in Belk Lounge. Also,
be on the lookout for infor
mation regarding C.C.U.’s
fall retreat.
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.
