for the St. Andrews Lady Knights volley
ball team as the Coots defeated both Meth

The women had already won the
regular season championship with a record
of 11-1, their only loss being to the Univer
sity of North Carolina at Greensboro. The
tournament only added to the season’s vic
In the playoffs, the women
played first Methodist and then Greens
boro. The matches were determined by
the usual 3-out-of-5 to win. In the game
against Methodist, the Cools won the first
game and then fell in the second, only to
come back in the third and fourth games to
win the match. Against Greensboro, the
Lady Knights were down by two games
going into the third, but picked up the
pace by first defeating the opponent 15-0
and continuing the winning streak for the
next two games to take the match and the
tournament title.
Along with being the tourna
ment champions, individual team mem
bers earned recognition at the playoffs.
Senior hitter Lori SU’oud and junior
middle hitter Kristi Kluegel were selected
for the first team all-conference, and Mar
garet Fuller, junior hitter, was selected for
the second team. Kristi Kluegel (“Klue”)
and Lori Stroud (“Stroud”) were each cho
sen for the all-tournament team, and
Stroud was selected Most Valuable Player
of the tournament team.
To the team, the most gratifying
award was given to their coach, Jo Ann
Williams, who was selected DIAC Confer
ence Coach of the Year. “She deserves it
more than anyone else,” said Kluegel.
“She is a great coach and a great friend and
we could not have done it without her.”
Though the team came out on top
in the tournament, the Coots did not
receive a Regional bid. The Lady Knights,
however, do not need a regional bid to feel
the thrill of victory.

With the college football polls
just recently released by many of the
country’s top sports magazines, the Saint
Andrews community can’t help but
wonder why CPI, with their 4-0 record, is
not ranked at the top with Oklahoma.
Intfamural football has become a
Saturday event for many, players and fans
alike, as the teams battle it out for a seat in

goes to the team which consists of anyone
from Winston-Salem dorm, and their rec

6. Meek freshmen- the sixth
place team isanotherthathails from Meck
lenburg, but these guys are all freshmen
and their record is 1-3.
7. Orange- Last, but not least, is
