2) World news roundup

Coming down the home stretch in the closest presidential race in years, Al Gore and George W. Bush campaigned feverishly throughout battleground states Sunday. Gore stopped at two black churches in Pennsylvania asking voters, “not only for your vote but for you enthusiasm.” Meanwhile, Bush spent the day in Florida trying to woo the senior citizen vote. At the same time, he sprinkled Spanish phrases throughout his speech, while salsa music and daylight fireworks punctuated his delivery. National polls and surveys indicate the possibility that Gore may win the electoral election despite Bush winning the popular vote. That has only happened three times in the nation’s history, and not since 1888.

As many as seven villages in on Indonesia’s main island of Java were hit Sunday by two days of heavy monsoonal rain, leaving dozens of houses buried and at least 52 people dead, officials said.

Clashes across the Gaza Strip and West Bank on Sunday left two Palestinians dead and 17 injured despite a truce agreement and plans for upcoming meetings in Washington.

1) Clark sets school records for carries, yardage

The Garnet Tide fell to Western Maryland 41-21 on Saturday. The Green Terror jumped out to a 21-0 first quarter lead, and extended to a 34-7 halftime cushion. Swat came back in the second half, led by Ken Clark ’03, who carried 29 times for 98 yards, setting new single-season team records with 219 carries and 902 yards. Chris Loeffler ’04 relieved injured quarterback Scott Murray ’01 and completed six of six attempts for 100 yards. The Tide is now 3-5, 2-5 with the season finale looming next Saturday at home vs. Washington & Lee.

2) Men’s soccer ends season with defeat

If the men’s soccer team’s four overtime losses this season had gone the other way, it would have been another story entirely. Instead, they finished the year with a 3-12 overall record and a disappointing 0-9 Conference mark. They fell to Haverford 2-0 in Saturday’s finale. Chris Milla ’03 recorded nine saves in the losing effort, as the ‘Fords outshot the Garnet 12-3.

3) World sports roundup

For the first time since his third professional tournament in 1996, Tiger Woods held at least a share of the lead entering the final round and didn’t win. The string of 20 consecutive tournament wins was ended Sunday by Phil Mickelson, who shot a four-under 66 to win the PGA Tour Championship. …The Raiders improved to 8-1 with a 49-31 win over Kansas City on Sunday. Quarterback Rich Gannon threw a career-high four touchdown passes. Kansas City quarterback Elvis Grbac completed 39 of 53 attempts for a new Chiefs record of 504 yards. …Hall of Famer Ted Williams remained hospitalized in fair condition Monday morning, as doctors decide wether to implant a heart pacemaker in the 82 year old Williams, who was admitted this week with congestive heart failure.

4) Today’s and tomorrow’s contests

There are no contests scheduled for today or tomorrow.
