WEATHER FORECAST

Today: Mostly cloudy and windy.  Highs in the mid 50’s.
 Didn’t this weekend make you feel like a spec again?

Tonight: Clearing.  Lows in the low 30’s.
 Has it been that long?

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny.  Highs in the upper 50’s.
 Sheesh, I barely even remember taking the SAT’s, let alone what I got on
them.

NEWS REPORT

1) Genereux latest SC member to resign

As the clock struck midnight leading into Monday morning, Joey Genereux let
his former fellow Student Council members that he no longer intends to be
with them.  Joining the ever-growing list of resignees, Genereux says he is
leaving because, “I no longer wish to fulfill my duties as a Student Council
member.” Current SC members could not be reached for comment.

2) Senior Speak Off entertains and mystifies

Last Friday, eight seniors vied for the right to speak at commencement,
with Tyler Stevenson emerging victorious.  Speeches were given by
Stevenson, runner-up Nevin Katz, Jessica Harbour, Paula Ioanide, Gerry
Kaufman, Rich Vezina, Tim Bragg and Matt Howard.

Tyler’s speech was set to the music of the Carmina Burana and, in the words
of Senior Class co-President Andy Caffrey, “showed us exactly what you can
do with a Religion major.”  Tyler was reluctant to give away details of his
speech, but did reveal its “pseudo-apocalyptic” nature.

3) World news roundup

NATO STRIKES SLOWED ONLY TEMPORARILY…

NATO forces continued their attacks on Yugoslavia over the weekend, but
officials say that the strikes were limited in deference to Orthodox
Easter. Madeleine Albright told reporters that after hostilites end, fewer
Serbian troops will be allowed to stay in Kosovo than originally planned
because of their participation in the current hostilities and Milosevic’s
rejection of the Rambouillet accords. Albright is, however, looking to mend
the relationship with Russia that has been demaged by their disaproval of
NATO involvement. … Allied planes struck targets in southern Iraq
yesterday in response to anti-aircraft attacks. Iraqi news reported that
civilian targets were also hit and that 2 people were killed. … Shintaro
Ishihara, a former lawmaker and anti-US nationalist, won the gubernatorial
election in Tokyo over the weekend. … India succesfully tested the
nuclear-capable and upgraded Agni ballistic missile. Pakistan condemned the
test and Japan, Britain and the United States all expressed concern.

2) Women’s rugby chalks up wins yet again

The Swarthmore women ruggers, facing Millersville University on Saturday
morning, continually outplayed their opponents for final scores of 19-5
(A-side) and 15-0 (B-side). The first game was clear from the start, as
Swat scored within the first few minutes; despite playing without captain
and scrumhalf Meghan Brennan ’00, the Garnet was able to capitalize on
Millersville’s lack of team cohesion to secure the victories.

3) Track and field has mixed results in weekend meet

In this weekend’s match-up against Johns Hopkins University, women’s
outdoor track and field won handily (102-28) while the men had a bit less
luck, losing just barely (88-71). Triple winners for the Garnet were
Desiree Peterkin ’00 (long jump, triple jump, 200 meter dash) and Stephanie
Herring ’99 (high jump, 100 meter hurdles, 400 meter hurdles). Double
winners included Clara Fuchsman ’01 (shot put, discus); Donovan Goodly ’02
(100 meter dash, triple jump); Keith Gilmore ’01 (400 & 200 meter dashes);
Marc Jeuland ’01 (1500 & 5000 meters); and Steve Dawson ’00 (long jump,
high jump).

4) Women’s tennis over Dickinson

The Dickinson Red Devils probably didn’t know what hit them as the Garnet
women tennis players drove away Saturday. Contributing to the score of 8-1
were singles winners Jen Pao ’01, Fran Simonds ’02, Laura Swerdlow ’02,
Wendy Kemp ’99, Kim Tu ’02 and Louisa Egan ’02 as well as the winning
doubles teams of Pao & Swerdlow and Simonds & Tu. The team’s current record
is 7-4, 6-2.

5) Men’s tennis, like women’s, backhands opponent

The men’s tennis team beat Rochester 6-1 on Saturday afternoon. Singles
players Nick Slimack ’99, Pete Schilla ’01, Jon Temin ’00, John Thomas ’02,
and Dennis Mook ’01 each contributed a point, while together the teams of
Schilla & Greg Emkey ’99, Thomas & Mook, and Temin & Scott Grant ’01
grabbed the doubles point.

*****

6) Baseball splits twin bill with JHU

The baseball team split a doubleheader with Johns Hopkins on Saturday,
winning the first game (4-1) but falling to the Blue Jays in the second
(5-2). The team’s record is now 7-9 on the season and 2-3 in the Centennial
Conference.

*****

7) Women’s lax again disappointed

This weekend’s home game against Gettysburg went poorly for the women’s
lacrosse team and culminated in a Bullet victory, 16-9. The Garnet battled
hard, with Holly Baker ’99 racking up 4 goals, Katie Tarr ’02 and Alicia
Googins ’00 grabbing two each, and Katie Harper ’02 chipping in with one,
but in the end Gettysburg was able to overwhelm the squad. The team falls
to 4-5, 1-3.
