UVa captures state crown in wrestling
FROM STAFF REPORTS
Led by four individual champions, the University of Virginia won the state wrestling crown Saturday on the VMI campus in Lexington.
The Cavaliers finished with 137 points, followed by James Madison (129), VMI (118), George Mason (115) and Old Dominion (113.5).
Virginia Tech (61.5), Norfolk State (26.5) and Newport News Apprentice (22.5) rounded out the field.
It is the third straight state championship for Virginia, which has won a record seven team titles since team scores were kept beginning in 1979.
The Cavaliers place seven wrestlers in the championship round and four came away with titles: Bob Seidel (125 pounds); P.J. Bory upset top seed Mike Coyle (JMU) at 141 pounds; Jim Harshaw (165); and Craig Fenstermaker (197), who stunned nationally-ranked Isaac Moore of VMI by the score of 7-1.
Fenstermaker was voted the outstanding wrestler and Jeff Bowyer of James Madison was chosen coach of the year.

VMI Basketball: The Keydets stand at 9 - 10 overall and 6 - 3 in the conference. In their last game the Keydets beat Southern Virginia College. Who? My question exactly. I believe SVC is the former Southern Seminary. Keydets won but I understand that SVC were scrappy and put up quite a fight.
The Supe's Pooch - Part II: In a recent update I mentioned that Gen Bunting's dog had been taken hostage and placed above the sentinel box. I also mentioned that I had heard that he was wearing an electronic collar, etc., etc. One of our participants informed me that the collar was removed before the dog was removed from the Supe's yard. So, no animals were harmed during the making of this film.
In Search of Lotus Notes Help: As the following e-mail indicates, Bob Patterson '71 is in need of some Lotus Notes assistance. If you have related skills, please contact Bob at the e-mail address noted below. I have to warn you though....Bob, like the Supe, also has an English Bulldog and I'm sure he'll be guarding it to prevent removal from the premises.
Would you put the word out on the mailing list for a Lotus Notes Guru? We use Notes ourselves, and we are expanding that part of the business. We have 1-2 projects that need input right away. Please have them E-mail me at email@example.com Many thanks. - Bob
VMI Foundation Distinguished Service Award: The VMI Foundation is calling for nominations for its Distinguished Service Award. The Foundation Trustees will consider those names recommended by the Nominating and Awards Committee at its meeting on March 27, 1999. It is requested that all nominations be returned to the Foundation office no later than March 1, 1999. I believe you can request a nomination form by calling the Foundation Office at 504-464-7287.
The purpose of the award is:
1) To recognize service to the Institute, the VMI Foundation, and/or the other alumni agencies.
2) To recognize outstanding achievements in the recipient's chosen career, and the resulting favorable reflection on the Institute.
3) To bring favorable recognition to the VMI Foundation and the Institute.
4) To be a positive influence on the Corps of Cadets.
The criteria for the award are:
1) No current or former paid employee of VMI or any alumni agency is eligible.
2) No current member of the Corps of Cadets is eligible.
3) No person currently serving on the Board of Visitors or any alumnin agency board is eligible.
4) Nominations in support of a deceased individual will not be considered.
5) No more than three awards shall be made at any one Founders Day Convocation.
6) Although the award is designed primarily for VMI alumni, non-alumni who meet the award criteria are eligible.
Class of '99 Graduation Speaker: In scanning the Electronic Turnouts I notice that the class of '99 invited Justice Scalia to deliver the commencement speech at their graduation. He declined. The turnout then went on to say that the class has now invited Gordon Liddy to deliver the speech. Stay tuned.
Cyber Corps Logo: I've attached a file to this e-mail that contains the VMI Cyber Corps Logo. As I mentioned some time ago I'm looking to have polo shirts and t-shirts made that contain the logo. Please download and take a look. I'd appreciate feedback. Since the logo incorporates the VMI "spider" (which is copyrighted or registered or whatever the correct term is), I'll need to get permission from VMI before we can use it. Actually I already have the form, I just need to send it in. More later on this.
That's it for this week.
Yours in the Spirit,
RB Lane '75
