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 tories. 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. CPI Tops in Intramural Ranks Meg Anderson given away to lucky ticket holders. These door prizes will consist of products and services donated from participating busi nesses for the event. A special half-time event will occur to entertain an expected large crowd (over 500 tickets have already been sold).

All students, faculty, staff, area business workers, families, and the general public are invited to attend the event. 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.

Winston-Salem- fifth place goes to the team which consists of anyone from Winston-Salem dorm, and their rec ord is 1-2. 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 the team from Orange, whose record is the mirror image of CPI, 0-4.
