Officials atlilrcss campus attack ‘rumors'

By Ellen Lord
Smfl‘ ll 'i'llt'l'

and Mal Herron
Campux Editor

One reported rape and one inci-
dent ofassault have been reported
to UK campus police, said Joseph
Burch, vice president for Universiv
ty Relations, in an official state—
ment yesterday afternoon.

“On Nov. 1, University police
were informed that a student
claimed that she had been raped,"
Burch said.

The original report to UK
police came frotii an outside

source whom Burch would not
reveal. lt stated that the rape
“occurred outside the residents
halls, in a residential area on the
south side of campus." Burch said.
“The UK police continue to
investigate this alleged incident."

The assault incident was
reported on Oct. 9 to the L'niver-
sity' police. The female victim
“was knocked down, btit was itot
injured," Burch said. The [K
Police had not confirmed or
denied sexual involvement and are
still investigating. he said.

Dean of Students David Stock—
hatti met with student leaders in
his office yesterday to help eliiiii—

itate fears that multiple assaults
have or are occurring. But student
government officials remain
unsatisfied with the .idtiiinistra-
tion's response time.

"Students have to be up in arms
for something to get done." said
Melanie (.‘ruI. president of the
Student (iovernment \ssociation.
“This is .t flashback to the attack."
said (Irul. referring to 'lianya
Marie Cole. an black student who
was attacked in NW).

Some who attended the meet—
ing with Stockhaiii said he was
straightforward on the issue.

“I believe he tries to answer any
questions the students have." said

\\'hitney llale. a public policv
adiitinistration graduate student.
“I'm a little concerned he‘s not
getting information."

The Dean of Students Office
gets faxes regularly frolli campus
altd city police. but he said no law
exists that stipulates “everything
had that happens to students
should be reported" to them.

After a series of weather delays,
the “CT. Young Library is sched—

hope ofopening it in January. But
that is on the condition that we

“\Ve can’t run the risk of
beginning to move the collection
over the winter break, and then
having to stop because the

that possible fact. we might have

But will this new library he that

Not to worry.

“Each study table will have

“The basement level will con-
tain a computer lab with 180 new
terminals instead of having

Being able to discern on which

level to look for books in the
library and then actually being
able to find those books is a com—
mon concern among some stu-
dents at L'K.

“I did have to find some books
on the fourth or fifth floor (at M.l.

Two weeks after (Iircle of lmani

till refusing to look past llantly

By Price Atkinson
Senior Staff llr’rircr

Bestowed with less than gra—
cious tidings of good joy, UK is
looking to rid the negative stigma
associated with “Vandy.”

Until last year, when the Cats
finally ended their five— ame losing
streak to the Cominodiires. 25-0,
UK had garnered a handful ofloss-
es against a Vandy squad at the
bottotn of the Southeastern Con—

“You look at the records and
you always see they're at the bot-
totn so you’re thinking you just
have to show up." UK senior
linebacker Bob llolmberg said.
“But we‘re not to that level where
we can just show up and beat
teams. We need to be mentally

Fellow senior john Schlarman
acknowledged I'lolmberg's assess—
ment of the troublesome situation
for the Cats.

“\Ve've had some bad luck
against them,“ Schlarman. an
offensive guard. said. “I think most
ofit was just in our heads.

“They seemed to have our

number the last five years in a row.
Last year we played a nice game
against them and we ptit all the
other stuff behind us."

The final occasion for L'K to
pick up an SEC victory on the road

' this season will come on Saturday

in the Music City at Vanderbilt
Stadium with kickoff scheduled for
3 part.

'l‘aking the Coitimodores too
lightly seemed to be a problem for
the Cats in past preparations. in
his first year at UK, head coach
llal Mumme said that will not be
the case on against Vandy on
Senior Day.

“I don't know how that got
started but that will not be the
case." Alumine warned. “l assure
you of that."

llolmberg added. “We’re not
taking them lightly this year like
we have in the past maybe. Coach
Mumme is worried about us takin I
them too lightly. and I don’t think
we are."

For L'K. a win at Vandy is more
important than avoidin ending
the season as the cellar t weller of
the SFC l‘iastern Division.

The Cats are hoping two more

triumphs would give them the six
wins they need to travel one more
time before the season's end.

“This gatne is huge for us."
Schlarman said. “This is the sea-
son. \\'e have to win the last two
games to go to a bowl and that
includes this one.

“\Ve have to go down there and
beat Vandy to have a shot at a bowl
game against Tennessee. If we
want postseason play. we have to
win it.

\'andy is still looking for its first
win in the SEC after six unsuccess—
ful attempts. It might be their last
opportunity as the Commodores
face the Volunteers to close their
season as does L'K.

While their record is far from
superb. they do own the best
defense in the SFC. statistically.

At home against 1.5L' on Oct. 4.
the Commodores narrowly missed
an upset as the Tigers blocked a
game-winning field goal on the
game's final play to escape with a
7—6 win.

the biggest concern for Vandy
head coach \Voody \Videnhofer is
his offense — a unit that’s had dif—

UK volleyball players Cynthia
Dozier and Tracy Thompson have
a lot in common.

They consider leadership to be
most effective when shown by
example. The have established
reputations as hard workers. They
traveled from far away to play for
the Cats. They aspire
to attend graduate

But tonight, they
will add one more
thin to the list — they
will ie playing in their
last home game.

“I'm really excited
about playing (tonight).




“l'd be lying ifl didn't say that
what we've done on the court
wasn't disappointing,” Thompson
said. “it didn’t turn out like I had
expected. but I will always look
back at all the things I've learned
and be satisfied that it all worked

As far as their coach is con-
cerned, however things did turn
out as expected.

“If I could have a
prototypical student—
athlete. either of these
two would be it." Flory
said. “\Ve knew when
we recruited them that
they were amazing tal-
ents and amazing peo-
ple. They are exactly

came to Lexin ton- in 1994. The
duo re resente the first recruiting

following a UK team that had gone

But in their three-plus seasons
with the Cats, Thompson and
Dozier have seen their team com—

ack of success on the court,
Thompson insists the more impor-
tant goals have been accomplished.

THE PHIL cmmm Fran Flory’sfirrt recruiting class rays good—hire

tonight as Cynthia Dozier and Truly Thompson play theirfinal home match.


Since then. the outside hitter
has seen only limited action, play-
ing mostly on the back row.

Meanwhile. Thompson. a mid
dle blocker. shone in 1996 by hit-
tin .l‘)0 With 152 kills and 97
blocks. After seeing limited action
early in the season. Thompson has
filled in for the injured jenny
Muzzey and ranks fifth on the team
in hitting efficiency.

Despite less playing time than
expected. Thompson and Dozier
have maintained a positive outlook
this season and continue to take
their leadership roles seriously.

“Easily. these two could have
labeled this a bad situation and
bailed on us," Flory said. “Instead.
they rose to the. challen e and have
done what's been needed to help
this team.”

“I would like to have won
more," Dozier said. “At the same
time, thou h, it probably won't
make any ifference — I've had a




great time here."


Tonight‘s match not only repres
sents the last for the team's two
seniors, btit it also represents the
Cats" final chance to make up
ground in the Southeastern Con—
ference standings. Fifth place in the
SFC's Eastern division is at stake in
the weekend series with Tennessee
— but only if the Cats win both
tonight‘s match and Sunday’s
match in Knoxville.

Fighting for fifth place?

The sixth place team faces 3 ms
sible match-up with No. 4 Florida
in the second round of the confer-
ence tournament. Fifth place
means a second-round matchup
with a less intimidating Arkansas

“This weekend is as critical as it
gets." Flory said. “W’c have to win
these two matches. That's all there
is to it.”
