Reviewing The Institute Report: Chuck Steenburgh '86 sent the following e-mail regarding The Institute Report. This is a way for those who do not receive this publication to read it via the internet.

We've just launched an "HTML edition" of the Institute Report (we've had a PDF version up for a couple of months), accessible from the news & events page:


It doesn't require as much overhead as the Adobe PDF version, and includes most of the major articles and photos from each issue. We plan to archive the issues on the site more or less permanently (we'd been keeping only 6 months or so before now).

VMI Wrestling Update: Gary Tester, dad of Chad '95, sent along the following:

After reading your VMI CyberCorp Update and the VMI home page (including sports pages) I wanted to bring to your attention that Leslie Apedoe Placed 6th at the NCAA division I wrestling tourney. This made him a "Medalist" and an ALL AMERICAN. Great honor for him, VMI and the Wrestling Program. Haven't seen it mentioned from the Institute.

    VMI scored four runs in the bottom of the seventh for a 12-11 victory over Brown in the first game of a doubleheader in Lexington. Erik Walker and Michael Goldman each homered for the Keydets (13-12).

    VMI's Ed Pearson and Scott Thompkins each homered in the nightcap, but four Bears' homers led an 11-7 Brown victory.

Thursday, April 01, 1999


    In men's lacrosse action Wednesday:

    Steve Ricker and Doug Thompson had four goals apiece to lead Mount St. Mary's (4-2) to a 16-10 win over VMI (2-5) at Patchin Field in Lexington. Matt Galliene scored three times for the Keydets.


    Darren Merten stroked a two-out, two-run homer in the eighth inning to lift Brown (4-8) over VMI 9-8 in Lexington.

    Michael Goldman had given the Keydets (13-13) an 8-7 lead with a two-run shot in the sixth inning.

    Merten's decisive home run came off Josh Spradlin after the reliever hit the previous batter. The loss drops Spradlin to 3-3.

Trapped In Manhattan, etc: On a personal note, my family recently spent a couple days in midtown Manhattan doing the tourist thing. Unfortunately the day we arrived I had a brain vapor lock and took us through the Holland Tunnel as opposed to the desired Lincoln Tunnel. This wrong turn dumped us in the middle of the financial district in the teeth of the NYC rush hour. My hat's off to anyone who can drive in NYC and maintain any semblance of sanity. Why NYC taxis don't have more dents is beyond me.

Also, I thought I'd be able to make next week's meeting of the Alumni Association, but I may have a change in plans which could prevent my attendance. If any of our participants attend, could you please fill me in on what transpires and I'll pass the info along. Thanks in advance.

Hey, that's it for this week. Happy Easter to all. He is risen! Also, Happy Passover.
And, keep our servicemen and women in your prayers.

Yours in the Spirit,

RB Lane '75
