2) World news roundup

Israeli officials issued an ultimatum to Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat Sunday: order an end to the violence within a day or the peace talks are over. Meanwhile, Israelis settled down to fast through Yom Kippur amid thoughts of 27 years ago, when their Day of Atonement was ruined by a surprise Arab attack which launched a Mideast war.

A magnitude 5.4 earthquake struck six miles beneath eastern Shimane prefecture, located 380 miles southwest of Tokyo Sunday afternoon. This and another fairly strong earthquake came just two days after a more powerful quake buckled streets, knocked down houses and paralyzed traffic for hours in a nearby region.

The Chicago Tribune reported Sunday that five major oil companies told federal regulators in May that they had adequate supplies of gasoline to meet the Midwest’s new clean-air standards. Just weeks later, prices rose to two dollars per gallon and the same companies claimed blamed low gas supplies for the rising cost.

Bill Clinton reflected on his eight years in office in an interview for the New Yorker released Sunday. He said he will gracefully step to the sidelines in January: “I don’t think the new president, whoever it is, will have problems with me acting like I wished I were still president.” He also agreed that his style of being president may change the way we view the office from now on. “I’m not sure that’s such a bad thing. We need to demystify the job. It is a job. There’s a lot to be said for showing up every day and trying to push the rock up the hill.

If you’re willing to win in inches as well as feet, a phenomenal amount of positive things can happen.”

1) Cross country stars lead teams

Star seniors Joko Agunloye ’01 and Marc Jeuland ’01 led the women’s and men’s cross country teams to respectable finishes this weekend at the Dickinson Invitational in Carlisle, PA. Agunloye finished second overall in the 5000 meter race, the highest finishing Division III runner. Her time of 18:22 helped the Garnet to tenth place out of 39 teams. Maria-Elena Young ’04 finished 43rd in the race. Jeuland also finished second in the men’s race, finishing the 8000 meter course in 25:59. Sam Evans ’01 finished 77th overall, helping the team to 22nd place out of 39 teams.

2) Football falls to Muhlenberg

The Garnet Tide jumped out to an early 7-0 lead on a Lane Oatey ’03 three-yard TD run, but it was all downhill from there. Muhlenberg ran up 21 quick points in the last five minutes of the first half to take a commanding lead into halftime. After the Mules scored again, the Garnet came back late in the third quarter to cut the lead in half. A three-play, 66 yard drive led to Keith McManimen ’02 catching a 71 yard pass from Scott Murray ’01 for the touchdown, making the score 28-14. But that was as far as they would get, as Muhlenberg got one last field goal to finish Swat off 31-14. Murray was 13-33 on the day for 172 yards. Blake Atkins ’02 caught five passes for 27 yards, while Oatey rushed for 36 yards on eight attempts. Kevin Perry ’04 led the defense with 11 tackles, three for loss. The football team’s record dropped to 2-3, 1-3 on the season.

3) Women’s soccer falls to Eastern

The women’s soccer team lost to Eastern College 3-0, dropping their record to 4-7, 1-4.

4) Volleyball woes continue

The volleyball team travelled to Chester to take on Widener this weekend, but they were swept again, dropping their record to 5-12 on the season. Widener defeated the Garnet by scores of 15-9, 15-6, and 15-12. Christine Hancock ’02 led the team with 12 kills, while Sarah Donovan ’04 had 12 set assists.

5) World sports roundup

All of New York was able to smile Sunday, as both the Mets and the Yankees closed out their best-of-five first round Division Series. In the afternoon, Bobby Jones threw a one-hitter as the Mets stomped out the Giants 4-0. Later last night, on the other side of the country, the Yankees exploded for six runs in the first inning and cruised to a 7-5 win over Oakland in a do-or-die game five. The Yankees will now face Seattle in the ALCS and the Mets will face St. Louis in the NLCS. …In the LPGA’s version of the Ryder Cup, Europe wrested the Solheim Cup from the U.S. Sunday in Scotland, winning 14 1/2 to 11 1/2. They clinched the win when Sweden’s Carin Koch holed an eight-foot birdie putt to beat Michelle Redman 2 and 1 in the next to last singles match. …Nebraska (5-0) remained at the top of the ESPN/USA Today College Football coaches’ poll, as Virginia Tech (5-0) moved up to the second spot and Kansas (6-0) moved up to No. 3.

6) Today’s and tomorrow’s contests
