Making
New Strides
The
Cross
Country
team
experienced some growing pains this
sem ester under first year head coach
Ellen Carpenter. They ended the season
by finishing 27th at the NCAA Southeast
Regional Championships. Even though
the cross country team did not have a very
successful season, Carpenter has the
team taking the right strides for the
future.
Jam ie Schneider was the leading
runner. She was also the best runner for
every meet that the team competed in this
season. Her best results came when she
finished second at the Campbell Invitational
and fourth at the Colonial Invitational.
Carpenter is looking to improve the
quality of the program. She works hard
with the team to ensure high quality.
Under Carpenter for the second straight
season, look for the team to improve next
year.
Acing Into
Post-Season
Head coach Darryl Cummings is
leading the M onarchs with hopes of
qualifying for post-season. While Old
Dominion is far from being considered a
national power, they do have some players
that have been playing well enough to
earn national recognition. Alexandre
Cancado and Luciana Araujo are the
leading Monarch tennis players. They
have both been top seeded since the
beginning of the season.
The M en's and W om en's Tennis
Teams are divided into two catagories.
The Fall semester focuses on individual
Competition, while the Spring semester is
allocated for team matches. Both teams
are fairly young and will gain experience
as the play ends. Next years competitors
will bring promise, drive, and savvy to the
asphalt courts of Old Dominion.

The Field Hockey team completed
one of their most successful seasons in
several years, however, it came up one win
short. The Lady Monarchs finished the
season 22-3, with their last loss coming
in the NCAA Championship game at the
hands of the University of North Carolina.
Head coach Beth Anders helped to
take the Lady Monarchs to the Final Four
for the second consecutive season. During
an 11 year span from 1982 to 1992, ODU
dominated the collegiate field hockey
world by capturing seven national
championships.
With the 3-2 victory, the University
of North Carolina won its third consecutive
national championship, a feat only done
two times before by Old Dominion (198284 and 1990-92). Named to the AllTournament team for the Lady Monarchs
were Marina DiGiacomo, Kelly Driscoll,
Mimi Smith, and Staci Smith.

Legendary head coach Gray Simons
led his m at-cats into another season
finishing the regular season 6-8 overall, 14 in the conference. They entered the
conference championships as one of the
favorites to take home the crown. They
did not win the championship but they
placed second overall.
Leading the way for the Monarchs
were seniors Mark Strickland and Jamie
Kelly. Strickland and Kelly, advanced to
the NCAA Championships. Both wrestlers
advanced past the first round before they
lost in the sem i-finals. Strickland was
named the CAA's M ost Outstanding
W restler for the 1997-98 year.
Five other w restlers in the CAA
championship matches, however all five
lost to their opponents. Kelly did perform
well enough to earn the wild card
selection to the NCAA Championships.

A Winning
Leg
Year in and year out, the ODU
sailing team is one of the strongest in the
nation. This year under the leadership of
Mitch Brindley that team continued their
tradition.
Defending National Champion John
Torgerson returned for another season.
In November, he placed fourth out of ten
sailors at the ICYRA Singlehanded National
Championships. Torgerson will leave the
program after this season as one of the
most decorated sailors in ODU history.
As a team, the Monarchs finished
fourth at the Navy Fall Invitational, which
is one of the largest events of the fall
season. The M onarchs also won the
MAISA single handed championships.
As. usual, Brindley and staff has
their team setting their sails high. Race
after race, the ODU sailing program
displays that it is a force to be dealt with
on the national scene.

The golf team was not as good as m
«
it has been in the past, but it also has *
never been this young. Consisting mainly
of freshman and sophomores, the golf »
team built a respectable season.
"We have three players, Troy Thorne,
Gary Harper, and Jam ie Conrad, who
have been pretty solid for us all year,"
said head coach Murray Rudisill.
The golf team also did not have the
depth that they normally have. "W e're
working hard and getting better, but we
are still trying to find that fourth and fifth
guy to step up and round out our starting
line-up," explained Rudisill.
Even though the golf team finished
in the middle of the pack at most of their
golf tournaments, it is clear that Rudisill
is building a strong foundation for the
future. The youthful Monarchs will make
an impact in seasons to come.

For the second consecutive season,
the Monarchs entered the season as the
favorite to win the conference. Coach
Capel also had high hopes with a strong
junior class returning, such as Mark
Poag, and Mike Byers. However, the
Monarchs were unable to make it to the
NCAA Tournament.
Entering the conference tournament
the Monarchs still had time to end the
season on a high note. However, their
season ended much the same way that
their regular season ended. The Monarchs
lost in the second round of the CAA
Tournament.
The Monarchs return four starters
next season, while they only lose point
guard Brion Dunlap. Once again, the
M onarchs should enter the 1998 1999
season as the favorite, but only time will
tell if they can improve.

ran into a road block losing to fourth

cheerleaders surprised teams and crowds
with extraordinary acrobatics and squad
enthusiasm. Head Coach, Geoff Bambini,
brought a wealth of knowledge to our

built pyramids that extended over fifteen

The Monarch Dance Team is fairly
young. Their experiences are limited, yet
the ladies create electrifying shows. These
dedicated Monarchs practice as a unified
body working towards their main goal of
school spirit.
In order to become a member of the
team, one has to try-out in front of a panel
of judges. It is ran by a select group of
Dance Captains and Co Captains. This
season's Captain is Lelani Tamondong.
Every summer the Dance Team goes to a
camp, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Here, the dance members learn new ideas
and the latest dance steps.
The Dance Team perform s a
combination of Jazz, Lyrical, Funk and
Hip Hop motions. This year's team
perform ed at several school activities
such as Monarch Family Weekend and
SuperDance. The ladies also danced at
every home basketball game.

Stealing
The Scene
"One, two, three strikes your out,"
could be heard echoing from the Bud
Metheny Complex. This year the Monarchs
were successful in achieving wins for the
home team.
The Monarchs were lead by head
coach Tony Guzzo, who has been successful
in leading the
M onarchs to victory
previous years. Returning to the team
were key players Pitcher, Jesse James,
Shortstop, Tony Gsell and Catcher, Nick
Ardagna. In 1997 the Monarchs compiled
a 34-20 record and placed 2nd in the
CAA. This year they tried to top last
years record. The baseball program has
continued to support m en's dreams of
aspiring through greatness and leadership.
The program works very hard to make
sure the players achieve academically as
well as on the field.

Making An
Impact
The Lady M onarchs entered the
season as the tenth ranked team in the
nation. The roller coaster season offered
high and low points for the lacrosse team
that ended its season with a 7-10 record,
3-3 in the conference.
Most of the Lady Monarch losses
came to nationally ranked opponents, but
they did manage to make an impact on the
national scene. Head coach Sue Stahl,
who is also the head coach of the U.S.
N ational team, feels that her players
"could play with the best players in the
country."
Their season ended with a
15-9 loss to tenth ranked Brown in the
NCAA Tournament. Junior Carly Brown
earned First Team All-CAA honors.
The Lady M onarchs are looking
poised to make a legitimate run in 1998.
