What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Page 4 T h » W April 26, 1995 Campus Olympics Alumni w e e k e nd By, Jam esa Dodd Hall Brawls, formerly known as Campus Olympics, was held April 17 through the 21. There was a wide variety of events, some never attempted before on this campus. Every year when this event rolls around, new games are added to keep the monotony down. Here is a breakdown of how the awards were won. On Monday the first event was the Canoe Race. The race took place out past Cornell Park and Erb’s Pond. It was a timed event in which the women were seated sideways and the men backwards, they then had to get turned forward and complete the race by running with the boat back to the start. The win­ ners were: 3rd Centennial for \Teams pushed a softball with their noses ...\ the women and 2nd Jordan for the men. That night two events took place, Cross-Dressing and Lip Service. Cross-Dressing is self explanatory, and was won by 4th C e n tennial for the women and 2nd Jordan for the men. Lip Service was very simi­ lar to the show on MTV, with contestants choosing songs on records that could be speeded up or slowed down and they had to keep up with it. The com­ bined floors of Clark basement and 4th won it for the women and for the men it was 2nd Jor­ dan. On Tuesday 3rd Centennial and two combined mens’ floors in Matthews won the Soccer tournament. Wednesday was a busy day and the Fishing Derby started it off. The biggest rainbow trout won for 2nd Jordan for the men. All the women’s teams that com­ peted gained five points in the tie.

Thursday afternoon featured a Swim Meet with four people on each team. 1st Jordan won for the women and 2nd Matthews for the men. Later that night, in the small audito­ rium, the Talent Show was held. Many different talents were dis­ played, from singing to poetry reading, to short skits.

Kool-Aid Chugging was won by 3rd Cen­ tennial women and 2nd Clark men by not spilling one drop and drinking as much as pos­ sible in thirty seconds.

Then it was time for the barbecue and rest and re­ laxation after a long week of competing. By Jerry McDonald Plenty of hugs, hustle and high fives dominated the action Friday and Saturday, April 21, and 22, as returning Alumni members waged battle against the Western Varsity Volleyball, Basketball and Football teams. Action began Friday in Straugh Gymnasium with the Western Lady Bulldog Volleyball team took the floor against the returning WMC Alumni. The first match turned out to be a battle as the Alums took a hard fought 15-12 victory. Tammi Sparks and Bobbi Steffan led the way with Sparks setting Steffan for numerous kills. Tracy Harris and Tara McDaniel kept the varsity team close with stellar play. Game two saw the Alumni go to sleep, while the varsity roared to a 15-4 win on the power of Har­ ris and the great defense of Lisa Gustafson. The Lady Bulldogs looked to have turned momentum in their favor as the Alums could do little right. Tied at one game apiece, the two teams struggled to a 12-12 deadlock that lasted several points. Suddenly, the Alumni, behind Sparks, Stephan and Cindy Bennett, scored three straight points to close out the contest. Other members of the Alumni team were Penny Stephens, Heidi Snider and Karen McMahon. Football: Western Bulldogs 20 Alumni 14 Snow squalls did little to dampen the spirits of the fans or the players Saturday afternoon, as the Western Bulldogs took on the returning Alumni at Vigalante Field in the annual WMC/Alumni football game. The Alumni took first posses­ sion, but sputtered, stumbled and eventually booted the ball out of bounds at their own five yard line where they were force to punt. Western’s freshman Pat Duch- ien then hit Brady Birkenbuel with a short pass that turned into a -.touchdown after a missed tackle by Alumni member Steve Vezina. After another failed offensive se­ ries for the Alumni, Vezina, jumped across the line on Western’s first play and “sacked” Birkenbuel to the delight of both teams. Western scored twice more in the half, a ten yard run by Duch- ien and a 55 yard pass from Duch- ien to Justin Krantz who streaked by Alumni defensive back Jim Stergar, giving the Bulldogs a commanding 20-0 lead at the half. The Alumni scored twice in the /second half while holding the 'Bulldogs scoreless. Scott Miller caught a 52-yard pass from Mike \A short pass that turned into a touch down...\ Grajeck for the first Alumni score. •Miller then ran it in from 2 yards out on the final play of the game to close out the scoring. As the teams were exchanging congratu­ lations, Chance Whitmore was heard as saying, “If coach Wilhite had just called my number, I think we would have won.” Lady Bulldog Varsity 75 WMC Alumni 57 Friday, April 21, the Western Lady Bulldogs took the floor against the WMC Lady Bulldog Alumni. What looked to be an evenly matched contest, turned into a rout as the Western Varsity proved too tough for the Alums. Seniors Krista Wickens and Amy Oltrogge, playing for the Alumni for the first time, tried to keep things close, but the varsity was not to be denied. Play at both ends of the court by Lady Bulldogs Tracy Harris, Amy Parker and Timbre Bausch halted any thoughts of the Alumni making the game a close contest. Harris and Parker did the bulk of the scoring for the Varsity, while the Alumni was led by Wickens, Oltrogge and Stacey Shockley. Jenny Reynolds Peterson, Bobbette Sands Ferris, Barb Nordahl and Charlie Kress contributed to the Alumni cause as well. Western Alumni 125 Western Bulldogs 110 The Western Alumni, behind the offensive rebounding show of Shane Browning and the ball han dling of Mark Durham, pulled away from a game Western Bull­ dog club. The first half was virtually even as the clubs traded leads sev­ eral times before the Alumni grabbed a three point lead at the half. The second half saw the Alumni jump on the Bulldogs from the start and pulled away by as much as 25 points. The Bulldogs were paced by Steve McCandless and Dusty Nagel, with great help from Mark Ketchum and Andy Swanson McCandless and Nagel scored at will against the Alumni, but the Alums had too much fire power to overcome. Shane Browning led the pack of five Alumni players scoring over 20 points. The balanced scor­ ing was shared by Kevin Engellant, Jeff Elliot, Jim Stergar and Brendan McMahon. John Sullivan and Mark Durham played tough defense, turning severa steals into easy points as Sullivan and McMahon took turns dunking off the breaks.
