Bulldogs use bunting strategy in tight quarterfinal game (10/16/05)
Notre Dame's two runs came as a result of bunts. In fast-pitch softball, bunting is one of the most important skills a team can have. When facing a pitcher the caliber of Sullivan starter Meghan Bailey, sometimes the bunt is all you have.

Fan Speak Oct16 (10/16/05)
Upgrading facilities SEVERAL YEARS ago, Southeast decided that Division I athletics was an important move to foster community relations and market the university.

Vegas for families (10/16/05)

For a mother of two, the line "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" can only mean that you'd rather forget that your kid threw up on a thrill ride here...
