CHARLOTTE (AP) - When Gov.
Jim Hunt won an unprecedented
fourth term, he also won an unprec-
edented chance to control the course
of the state.
When the new General Assem-

Hunt pledges to heed voters' mes-
sage to join hands with lawmakers
and put politics and party aside.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Army in-

- to keep quiet Four drill instruc-
tors and a captain at the Army Ord-
nance Center have been charged,
three with criminal charges and two
on administrative counts.

which range from rape to sending
improper love letters to the trainees,

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -
A two-hour warning strike by
Lufthansa employees at Frankfurt
Munich and Hamburg today forced
35 flights to be canceled and caused
delays of up to 2 i2 hours.
Flight and ground personnel
belonging to the German Workers

a.m. to 9 a.m. to demand a better
wage offer and a longer contract in
negotiations with the airline.

Students and their families can
now have questions answered concern-
ing financial aid applications, searching
for grants, work-study or other finan-
cial aid sources fret of charge.
Sallie Mac, one of the nation's lead-
ing sources of funds for higher educa-
tion, is trying to make applying for fi-
nancial aid easier. The company has re-
cently made its College Answer Service
a nationwide program.
The service began as a pilot pro-
ancial aid questions
gram in 1994, but was only available to
people in the Washington D.C. area.
Now interested people throughout the
nation may obtain information and re-
ceive help from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern
The idea for the program came
from the growing number of questions
financial aid officials face dealing with
the financial aid process.
"Ye (Sallie Mae) had feedback from
financial aid officers that this would be
a really good idea of something that we
could do to help students, parents and
schools with their questions concern-
ing financial aid Sallie Mae Associate
Denise Rossitto said.
The program's director is Steve
Stocks, a former college financial aid
director; and the queries will be taken
by a team of specialists comprised of
Sallie Mae employees trained in finan-
cial aid.
Help will be provided for concerns
with locating grant sources and possible
work-study programs, but the program
is primarily offered to answer questions
about college financial aid and to give
advice about it
Families can use this service by call-
ing 1-8003914599 or via the Internet
Sallie Mae's World Wide Web site
also features information on planning
and paying for college. Students and fami-
lies can forecast college expenses, calcu-
late expected family contributions and
compute monthly loan payments using
interactive calculators also featured there.
There is also a personal finance tutorial
which can help college students respon-
sibly manage their money.

Officials make changes to drug policy
Twenty-four hour
notice no llonger
Jennifer Barnes
Staff Writer
In their September meeting, the
board of trustees decided to bring a few
changes to the current ECU drug test-
ing policy.
Mike Hanley, head athletic direc-
tor, said that the changes were nothing
major, but they will mainly help fill in
the questions that were formed over the
years through the use of the present
"I think basically the changes are
meant to tighten the policy Hanley
said. "It had been awhile since the policy
had been changed and it just needed to
be updated
Some of the tightening that was
done involved rewording parts of the
policy that didn't exactly spell out the
restrictions they wanted tc iphold.
For example, Hanley said that one
thing that was changed was that the
new policy states if
an athlete tests
positive on a drug
test hisher fresh-
man year, and
then again his
her senior year,
that athlete's slate
does not get wiped
clean, but every-
thing stays on it
On the exist-
ing policy, this was not worded in a way
that would enforce its purpose. It was
little things like this that they wanted
to change.
There was one big change that is
being brought into the upcoming policy,
will profoundly affect the soon to
beformer policy. Hanley said that in
the past when an athlete was given a
drug test heshe had to be given writ-
ten notification beforehand, but that is

A team of ECU graduate students in maritime history and nautical
archaeology was recently featured in a one-hour special edition of Search,
a public television program.
The program originally aired on Nov. 3 and will appear again on

Racial Comments provoke concern at MU
Four years ago. WKBQ104.1's Steve and DC used the word "nigger"
on the air. Now they want to sing the national anthem at Saturday's Home-
coming football game.
Steve and DC were scheduled to appear before Missouri University s
Homecoming football game Saturday and regale the crowd with their ver-
sion of "Stars and Stripes Forever
But at least two students complained about the two nationally-syndi-
cated DJs who now will not be crooning before the Homecoming crowd.
Joe Castiglione, MU athletic director, said the students complaints
brought the offensive remarks to the attention of the athletic department
which was previously unaware of Steve and DCs racial remark.
He said an appearance by Steve and DC could be construed as an
endorsement of them, and that would not have been in MU's best interest
After the incident four years ago, the duo was fired from their job, and
before being picked up by another St Louis radio station, they went through
sensitivity training.

Bomb letter suspect at USF out on bail
The 19-year-old charged with sending a bomb threat letter to Univer-
sity of South Florida went home to his mother on bail Friday and he has
been ordered to seek psychological counseling.
Damian Conrad Hospital was released by US Magistrate Thomas Wil-
son after a family friend in New York put up his house to secure a $50,000
bond. Hospital, wearing black Chuck Taylors and a black T-shirt with the
drawing of a woman's face on it said little during the hearing.
Outside the federal courthouse with his lawyer, Hospital smiled and
told reporters he was happy to be leaving jail.
Hospital is no longer a USF student or resident although school offi-
cials will not say whether he withdrew or was expelled. Until he was ar-
rested Oct 1 on federal charges he mailed a threatening communication to

Get a degree without going to class at NC State
In the past students have tried to earn their degree while not attend-
ing class. It didn't work.
But now, NC State's College of Engineering is offering an off-campus,
video-based program through which engineers and scientists can earn a
Master of Engineering degree without attending campus classes.
Registration for the Spring 1997 Video-Based Engineering Education
(VBEE) program begins Nov. 1. Concentrations include: civil engineering;
chemical engineering; materials science; electrical and computer engineer-
ing; and computer science.
VBEE courses are regular classroom lectures that have been video-
taped. Tapes are sent weekly to enrolled students, who review the tapes and
submit homework assignments by mail.

During Sigma Gamma Rho's
Founder's Week, they will sponsor vari-

Sigma Gamma Rho was founded
Nov. 12, 1922 at Butler University in
Indiananapolis, Ind. It was founded by
seven teachers. At the time, they believed
that greater service led to greater
progress, so the basis of this organiza-
tion was service and scholarship. The
ECU Eta Mu Chapter of Sigma Gamma
Rho was founded Dec 3, 1977 by 16

a few things that the Eta Mu Chapter
has changed since the beginning. The
first deals with hazing. They do not
participate in any form of hazing. The
second deals with their beliefs in unity.
They look to eliminate any form of com-
petition, especially competition that
could form of any kind of tension.
As far as their volunteer work goes,
the sisters of Sigma Gamma Rho help
the American Heart Association with
clerical work and they call for donations.

"These experiments were chosen
to increase the awareness of science
in these children Rodriguez said,
adding that the experiments were
done at four different stations, with
10 children and at least two assistants
at each station.
The first experiment involved the
separating of mixtures. In this case,
different inks were broken down into
their base components.
"This experiment is used to dem-
onstrate how different colors are com-
bined to make different inks, and also
show how mixtures can be broken
down chemically Rodriguez said.
The second experiment dealt with
using indicators to discover if an item
was basic or acidic.
"In this experiment we will have
a variety of different items and the
children will determine whether or not
they are an acid or a base on the ba-
sis of what color the indicator turns
when it is applied to the substance
Rodriguez said.
The third experiment involved
finding out whether or not different
types of food have starch in them.
"The students will prepare a solution
and then apply it to different types of
foods. The color will change in the
absence or presence of starch
Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez said the final experi-
ment was the perennial favorite
among kids: the slime experiment.

in 1994 when work began on the

Watts has been taking students

For years people have been complaining about the
registration process at ECU. Their main complaint is
that ECU is behind the times in getting on line registra-
Most other universities have a system students can
call from the convenience of the home and get the classes
they need. At ECU, you will find people camping out to
be the first in line when the computer terminals open.
Also, the computers have been known to shut down
and lock up, making it impossible for students to get
the classes they need. Usually they come back up in a
timely manner, but it is frustrating for the students.
ECU is currently working on a plan that will allow
students to be like other universities and register on
the phone. We at TEC feel that it is about time.
ECU is making so many changes to the campus and
it is about time they make a change in the registration
process. True, they are working on it but how long are
we going to have to wait?
We realize it is not an easy process and there is a lot
of work involved, but for a university on the rise, the
students feel like they are in the dark ages when it comes
to registering.
The freshman might not know what all the fuss is
about, but, come Thursday, when they have to wait, they
will realize what most upperclassmen complained about
when they were at that point in their college careers.
So, if you are going to register, take a bottle of aspi-
rin. You'll need it If you have already gotten your classes,
We write this column every time registration comes
around and we hope one day in the near future we won't
have to write about the hassle of registration.
But for now, all we can do is wait and see if the
process of registration catches up to the progress of
the rest of university.

Some of my colleagues and I
were discussing what is "ugly" this
weekend. We thought that ugly is
an opinion. So, keeping that in mind,
we decided to look it up in Webster's
New World Dictionary- Third Col-
lege Edition. The book has four
definitions for ugly.
Each of the four uses words like
unpleasant, aesthetically offensive
and repulsive. Now, each of those
"defining" words is just about as
vague as the one in question. So, a
little back-tracking was necessary. It
was found that both of the previous
editions of the same dictionary de-
fined ugly as "the opposite of
Ahhh, well now everything was
much clearer! In a book of defini-
tions, we got opinions. Granted, defi-
nitions are based on consensus of
opinion . But what is the consensus
on ugly?
Certainly, we college students
can come up with a better idea of
what ugly is than the aforemen-
tioned. Now, I'm not going to lie and
say that I have never said that so and
so was ugly. Judgmental as it is, it is
sometimes unavoidable. But as I get
older, I start to realize that passing
that kind of judgment is myopic and
crass. (Boy, do you ever feel like life
is just one big 12-step group?) So,
how do we come up with a defini-
tion for ugly that is not only politi-
cally correct, but has sound and fair
reason behind it?
Well, it has to be an objective
term, but at the same time it has to
be cut and dry.
We don't want any gray matter
here, that just wouldn't be fair. What

If I try to sit back and think of

Though both have points that make

associate with ugly, each still has fac-

For example, my mom knows that I
don't like cranberry sauce, so she
doesn't bother asking me if I want
some. Moreover. Tommy may have

J.B. is modern-day Job
Jennifer Coleman
Senior Writer
Would it be a greater trial to
have everything and lose it all, or to
have everything, lose it all, and then
get it back?
This is one of the questions
asked in Archibald MacLeish's
Pulitzer Prize winning play J.B. J.B.
is the modern-day version of the
Book of Job from the Bible. J.B. is
your average church-going, Bible-
reading, God-fearing man; he has a
wonderful wife, good kids, a nice job,
his health and an unwavering devo-
tion to God.
Here's the kicker, though: God
and Satan get together and have a
little chat about J.B and Satan gets
to thinking he can pull one over on
the Heavenly Father. So he comes
up with this challenge. "Hey God
Satan says, "I bet you that J.B. will
lose his faith in you if you start tak-
ing away everything he cares about
one by one
And Cod says, "No he won't! J.B.
loves me! I'll prove it" And the con-
test has begun. Piece by piece, ev-
erything J.B. cares about is taken
away from him, and J.Bs faith never
falters. He praises God even after his
own wife dies. This just burns Satan
up, but then Satan always has been
a sore loser.
So Satan decides to fight brim-
stone with fire and talk to J.B. him-
self. His argument is something to
the effect of, "How can you still praise
his name, after everything he has
done to you?" J.B. remains steady in
his faith, so Satan decides to bring
There is nothing more
useless than screaming at a
wall. It's just spittle and
bricks, bricks and spittle.

I swear that this is going to
be my last rant about things
political in this column (at
least for a long while) because
I'm sick of the whole process.
Now for one final scream at
that big wall around the Capi-
tol building.
How can Jesse Helms be
elected again? Sure, I can un-
derstand that the old boy net-
work will unfortunately al-
ways be there to support him.
But what about the other
members of the public?
� How can any woman jus-
, tify supporting Helms?
Women make up at least half
of the voting public, if not
more. His stance on women's
issues is that women don't
have any issues. Only men's
opinions about women matter.
He has made the oppression
of women one of his goals and
yet women still vote for him.
Perhaps the women who vote
for Helms buy into the tradi-
tional role of woman as sup-
portive but silent.

lina is the area of the stats

what He is going to do next?" Satan
J.B who by this point has lost
even his good- health and is in ago-
nizing pain as his skin literally boils
off his frame, is too weak to fight.
He listens as Satan explains that af-
ter all J.B. has gone through, when
it is all said and done, God plans to
give him everything back. And J.B.
realizes that if he gets it all back, he
could go through this hell on earth
again and again and never know why.
I've always found the Book of
Job to be one of the more interest-
ing sections of the Bible, for several
reasons. To begin with, I wonder at
Job's unwavering devotion to God.

When I first saw the promotional
footage for Ransom, I'll have to admit
that I was less than thrilled. The plot in
which a man decides to put a ransom on
his son's kidnapper rather than pay the
kidnapper the ransom he asked for,
seemed like a generic TV movie-of-the-
week story to me.
Yet the names attached to the
project gave me hope that this tired and
overplayed storytelling cliche would be
turned on its ear. Mel Gibson was won-
derful in Braveheart, Delroy Lindo es-
tablished the strength of his acting in
dockers, Gary Sinise has proved to be a
consummate performer in films like
Forrest Gump and Apollo 13, and Rene
Russo was splendid in Get Shorty. Fi-
nally, Ron Howard's career as a director

the surface, Among My Swan
seems very similar to the group's

their exploration of stripped down
acoustic landscapes, but there is
something different about Among
My Swan, some quality that begs
to be discovered, a difference in
mood, or demeanor.
Everything about this band is
subtle. Hope Sandorval's voice is a
soothing instrument, evocative and
emotional, moving in colors and

changes. One of the aspects of jazz

It will help me deal with the next
six years.
Many people have tried to as-
suage my despair by saying that
Jesse will probably die in office this
�term. To that I say, Strom
Thurmond is 93 years old and he
got re-elected. He will be 99 when
he gets elected again. If you don't
think he'll get elected again, this
election he received over 90 per-
cent of the vote. If you don't be-
lieve he'll live out his term, well it
was said that old bastard would die
six years ago when he was 87. They
said it 12 years ago when he was
81. I think Jesse's only in his 70s.
That could mean 20 more years of
That's 20 more years of racism,
sexis.n and almost fascistic nation-
alism to come. When President
Carter, a true hero of mine and a
great humanitarian, came to Green-
ville last Monday to speak in sup-
port of Harvey Gantt, he reminded
us of just what a determined idiot
Helms is. (And Carter should know
since his grandmother's name was
Helms and she was from North
Carolina. Yes, Helms is Carter's
fourth cousin.)
Helms is the one man who sup-
ported the continuation of apart-
heid in South Africa. Helms is the
one man who supported Pinochet
and his death squads. Helms is the
one man who has tried to block ev-
ery peace treaty that America has
ever negotiated - that includes
treaties initiated by both Demo-
cratic and Republican presidents.
Helms is all about Helms and
nothing else. He is exclusionary to
the point of being ridiculous.
He's also the head of the Sen-
ate Foreign Relations committee. A
major function of this position is
that Helms serves as a representa-
tive of the U.S. when dealing with
foreign nationals. I mean, come on!
It doesn't take a genius to figure
out that Helms hates foreigners.
And he's one of our top represen-
tatives? What kind of message does
this send to the world?
I hope I live to see the day that
Helms leaves office. But if things
continue as they have been most
of my life (Helms has been in of-
fice for 24 years and will be in it
for another six), then I will prob-
ably never see this country free of
Jesse's control. It makes me sick.
I've screamed so much my
throat is sore.

manner that has nothing to do with

ity, the sensitivity to minute
changes of meaning and mood. The
notes roll from her lips and slide

its into being, offering up the winds

Although David Roback is still
writing simple music, he, like
Sandorval, has the ability to draw
the listener into his private world,
where the chord progressions mat-
ter not, where the arrangements
are indeed simple, but no more
simple than the provoking string ar-
rangements that George Martin
once provided for a four-piece rock
outfit form Liverpool, England.
(Perhaps you've heard of them )
Simplicity is the key here. It is
the word of the day, and Roback
shows his talent to be superior by
the fact that he can evoke emotions
without relying on guitar acrobat-
ics. Roback creates the perfect
sonic environment for Sandorval's
vocals, not only with ethereal gui-
tar but on piano and violin as well.
The songs are, for all their sim-
plicity, superbly written. Sadly,
Mazzy Star prefers not to print
their lyrics, which makes it hard to
digest them in a short time. But
perhaps that was exactly the way
they wanted it - to have us come
and live in their musical kingdom
before revealing all their secrets to
The album opens up with a
driving number that sounds noth-
ing like "Fade into You the band's
hit from their previous album. "Dis-
appear" is more moody and sad, as
if there were an element of coun-
try music in the vein of Emmylou
Harris sneaking in. But all of the
songs are not somber. Some are
playful and some actually start to
jam out, in their own relaxed way.
For the most part, the songs are
calm and solid, similar in this re-
gard to the Sundays and the Inno-
cence Mission.
"Flowers in December" is very
rootsy, again, like some country-
folk or Cowboy Junkies tune.
"Rhymes of an Hour" is dark and
introspective; the echo effect on the
guitar and the slow march of the
sparse percussion shows Roback
has listened to the Velvet Under-
ground. The slow soaring guitar
solo that closes "Rosebud" is grip-
ping and siren-like.
There is no mistaking the pe-
culiar quality that makes this band
stand out. The fact that they can
make a powerful emotional experi-
ence out of nothing more than an
acoustic guitar and Sandorval's
voice ("All Your Sisters") is no small
achievement. Many before them
have tried, tried and failed.
Among My Swan sounds rainy,
like the music best suited for a chilly
overcast morning, best spent, per-
haps, listening to such music and
drinking a cup of coffee, wrapped
in a blanket, sitting on the porch
swing, watching the downpour.
Maybe this is why many of the
photos in the cover art feature Hope
Sandorval and an umbrella. She has
been standing in the rain, and this
is how she feels about it; these are
her raindrops, collected here for us
to savor. Or maybe she is inviting
us to come into the rain and walk
with her. Maybe she is letting the
chilled air surround us and the pre-
cipitation sing to us in its own sweet,
percussive way.

The second reason I find the
Book of Job so fascinating is the cru-
elty exhibited, not by Satan but by
God. I wonder why God feels the need
to justify himself to Satan in the first
place? Job asks God to explain why
he is being punished - begs, in fact
He feels that if he just understood
where he went wrong, if he just knew
what offense he was guilty of, then
he could keep his faith. But God re-
fuses to answer.
God has to destroy Job's life to
prove a point to Satan, but he doesn't
owe anything to his greatest follower.
Maybe I've got the wrong idea, but I
always figured that God should just
be the bigger person and tell Satan
to go jump off a bridge. I also won-
der why God would further punish
Job by giving him everything back
just so he can relive this personal
hell? The way I see it, I'd rather not
have such strong faith in God just so
that I don't draw attention to myself.
If Job hadn't been God's biggest fan,
he never would have gone through
all this.

though, I can not wait to see this

day" version of the Book of Job, I

be. It was much more interesting to watch
the trials and tribulations of a bunch of
whiny, rich white folk.
However, in the '90s this sentiment
doesn't translate well at all. It is hard to
care for a man who may be a felon. In
the new film, Gibson's character is be-
ing investigated by the FBI for possible
mafia payoffs he may have made. He is
worth millions of dollars and he uses his
money to pay his way out of every prob-
lem that comes his way. He seems so far
removed from society that it is exceed-
ingly difficult for the audience to iden-
tify with him.
This is a serious problem because
Gibson is the driving force and his screen
presence overwhelms all of the actors
involved, much to the detriment of the
film. If your hero is a money and power
hungry scumbag, then who are you go-
ing to root for?
Interesting dilemmas like this are
never even approached in the film. Ap-
parently the answer to that question, as
far as Howard is concerned, is that you
root for the scumbag. Because this stance
is so unbelievable, it automatically less-
ens the film's impact
Again, the film follows the typical
(and always disappointing) Hollywood
formula for a thriller, step by agonizing
step. Gibson and the rest of the cast look
as though they are sleep-walking through
their lines and any emotional content
they may have given to their perfor-
mances is ruined because it feels as if
they're reading off of cue cards most of
the time.
For instance, Russo's talent is com-
pletely wasted. She might as well not even
appear in the film because she simply
acts as a pretty piece of window dress-
ing who is only shown screaming, cry-
ing and looking disheveled. Lindo is com-
pletely passive and even goes so far as to
compromise his status as an FBI agent

a less than perfect film - Donnie

be a screaming wake-up call for all you
possible viewers out there that this film
has a large potential to suck.
Even Sinise, who plays a police of-
ficer who is heavily involved with the
case, comes off as shallow and petty when
he throws angry temper tantrums. All
in all, every bit of talent that is involved
in this film (and which cost TouchstonS
Pictures a fortune to solidify) is com-
pletely wasted. It is a disappointing
The only thing that saved the film
when I saw it, the only reason it got the
"See It For Free" rating was the audi-
ence at Hendrix Theatre. Our student
audience is always a hitor-miss situation.
If a really good film is playing, the lacka-
daisical attitude and juvenile response
to the movie almost always ruins it On
the other hand though, if an overly
cheesy film (like Ransom) is being
viewed, then the jokes and applause and
cat-calls can add a needed bit of ambi-
ance to the movie. So, if you really want
to see this movie, do yourself a favor and
wait until it returns to Hendrix next year
(which it surely will) and see it for free.
Please don't waste any money on it

Wednesday night, ECU laced up
for their first exhibition game against
Croatia, posting a 60-50 win.
Vanderbilt transfer. Jen Cox, who
had to sit out last year after transfer-
ring, scored a team high 14 points.
Cox said she was glad to be playing
again, and that thu is a whole new
beginning for her.
"I had forgotten how it feels to
play Cox said. "I've forgotten my first
two years. This is a totally different
season. I have more confidence in
myself. It's a new start for me basi-
Coach Anne Donovan, who be-
gins her second season as head coach,
was basically pleased for their first
organized game of the season.
"I was pleased for the first time
out Donovan said. "We played all 11
people we dressed and they all con-
tributed. Hopefully it gave us a chance
to get over the jitters
Senior Shay Hayes recently had
back surgery and is expected to be
red-shirted this season. Junior college
transfer Ashanta Sellers did not dress
due to a hip injury.
ECU jumped out early and took
a 10-2 lead off a Cox jumper. Croatia
was sluggish in the first half. ECU
took a 10 point lead with a Nicole
Mamula jumper and then ECU ex-
tended the lead by 12 points, 25-13,
with another Cox turnaround jumper.
The ECU Pirates went head-to-head with Virginia Tech but came up short 35-14. This week
they will host Ohio University for senior day, which is the seniors last home game.

ECU only led by 27-25.
Cox led the scoring drive with six
points, while Laurie Ashenfelder and
Nicole Mamula added four in the first
Donovan said that defensively, a
lot of improvements need to be made.
"We wanted a good effort on de-
fense and I don't think we got it
Donovan said.
Croatia took their first lead, 30-
29 at the start of the second half, but
Justine Allpress silenced their scoring
drive with three straight three-point-
ers. That allowed ECU to go ahead
From that point, it was neck-to-
neck and with 10:35 left in the game,
the Lady Pirates found themselves
down by one. But that would be the
last time they were down.
ECU pulled ahead and didn't look
back, winning 60-50.
Offensively Donovan got what she
was looking for.
"We were looking for offensive
balance tonight and we got it We have
a lot of people who can put the ball

Gonzalez completed 17 of 35

his first start despite the loss.

Heartbreaking loss
for women's soccer

Staff Writer
The 1996 ECU women's soccer
season ended Wednesday night at
the CAA tournament held in
Wilmington. The Lady Pirates lost
in penalty kicks after playing UNC-
Wilmington to a 0-0 tie in regula-
"It was a heartfelt loss, we
should have won freshman full-
back Shana Woodward said. "We felt
like we dominated the whole game.
we just couldn't get anything in the
The Lady Pirates outshot their
UNC-Wilmington counterparts 20-6,
but couldn't convert scoring oppor-
tunities. The loss capped off a 7-11-
2 season and a ninth place finish in
the CAA. The UNC-Wilmington
game was a reflection of the regu-
lar season.
"We really played hard and ag-
gressive, but we weren't really able
to capitalize on it third year coach
Neil Roberts said. "We were up
sometimes and down others, but
we've improved a great deal
The Lady Pirates' record was
impressive though, considering that
18 of the 26 players and nine of
the 11 tournament starters were
The team also had to overcome
numerous injuries, including five
ankle sprains, leading to many sub-
stitutions throughout the games.
One in particular was an injury to
one of the top players, mid-fielder
Courtney Jurchich, a junior trans-
fer from N.C. State.
Some of the standout perform-
ers throughout the injury plagued
season were freshmen Jill Davis,
Dana Durbin, Amy Horton and unior
forward Stacie Cause, who set
school records for goals and points.
Two of the team's more impres-
sive games were a 1-0 victory at
Georgetown and when they beat in-
state rival UNC-Wilmington. The
turning point of the season, how-
ever, was a loss to James Madison.
"We lost to JMU, but it was a
great battle Durbin said. "After the
JMU game, we felt like we came to-
Despite ending the season with
a loss, the team remains optimistic.
"This year is like a rebirth of
soccer, overall a definite positive
Roberts said. " We are extremely
excited about the direction of the
program. Women's soccer is the fast-
est growing sport in the NCAA for
women, and this is only its third year
here at ECU
"We all came together in the
tournament game. We played for
pride Woodward said. "This sea-
son was a lot better than last year's
and we can do nothing but improve
One sign of improvement was
that Team Captain Stacie Cause was
named to the all-conference team.
"Our goals for the future are to
be competitive and improve our
standings in the CAA Roberts said.
With a team so young and tal-
ented, only experience can produce
winners. If they can overcome the
nagging injuries they had this year,
the next few seasons should be quite
Productive for these Lady Pirates.

The volleyball game against UNC-W
originally scheduled for last night will be
played tonight at 7 p.m.
The game will be played
in Minges Coliseum and is free to students.
The ECU volleyball team lost its ninth consecutive match as James Madison defeated ECU. 15-10. 15-12,4-15,
15-7. The Pirates are now 6-24 overall and 0-5 in the CAA for the season.
James Madison improved its record to 23-8. and 5-1 in the CAA.
Individually, Shannon Kaess had 14 kills, which ties her with Carrie Byrne for tenth place on the ECL single
season top ten list for kills. Kari Koenning added 10 digs and Julia D'Alo served up three aces in the loss.
The Pirates will home tonight against UNC-W at 7 p.m. in Minges Coliseum.
The men's tennis team completed fall play this weekend. Roope Kalajo and Kenny Kirhy both lost their first
round matches in the Rolex Region II Indoor Championships. The singles and doubles champions from each
region qualify for the Rolex National Indoor Championships, held later this fall.
UNC's Tripp Phillips, seeded seventh, defeated Kalajo 7-6 (4), 5-7,6-1. Eric Saunders (NCSU), a qualifier from
the early rounds, defeated Kirby 64, 6-2.
The swim teams were victorious over the weekend. On Saturday, both squads took home wins at ODU as well
as winning at William & Mary on Sunday.
The men squeezed by ODU by a score of 128-115 before claiming a victory against William & Mary 131 104.
The Lady Pirates (3-0, 3-0 CAA) had a much easier road beating both teams by an average of over 48 points; ODU
140-87 and William & Mary 140-96.
Sophomore Richard Chen enjoyed two victories over the weekend. He won the 200 fry :it ODU and the 100

Defensively, Crane came u big
for the Pirates. Saturday was
Crane's birthday and he had hoped
to be celebrating a win with the
birthday cake, but that didn't hap-
pen. However, he did record 10
tackles and recovered a fumble for
the Pirates.
But Crane was disappointed in
the way the defense allowed Tech
to score five times.
