The 24-17 Homecoming victory Satur-

win since they beat Indiana 3-0 Sept. 21 at

came last October when it beat LSU 24-

It also was the Cats’ first game since it
was announced that Coach Bill Curry and
his staff would not return next year.

“Kentucky played a lot better than I’ve
seen them play,” Georgia Coach Jim Don-
nan said. “We can make all the excuses we
want, but Kentucky just whipped our butt

somewhat, with Billy Jack Haskins getting
all the snaps from center.

It was the first time since the Alabama
game that Tim Couch did not get an

After almost a year of hard work, the 59 mem-
bers of the Eta Tau chapter of the Pi Kappa Phi
social fraternity gathered at the Lexington Hyatt
to celebrate receiving their charter.

“VVe’ve worked toward this since February
1995, and I feel like we’ve come a long way,” said
Pi Kappa Phi president John Masters. “This is the
proudest moment of my life.”

Upon receiving their charter Saturday, the
names of all the members of the chapter of Pi
Ka pa Phi were inscribed along with the founding
fatfiers of the other chapters.

To receive their charter, the members had to
set up a rush program, have the suEport of alumni,
fulfill scholarship requirements, ave at least 55
members and prove that they could operate as a
regular chapter on campus. Pi Kappa Phi mem-
bers ho e to construct a house on campus as soon
as possible.

New members said they joined Pi Kappa Phi to

Upperclassmen were glad the wait for charter—

ing was over.

“I am glad to be a chartering member,” said
Doyle Hutchinson, an accounting junior.

“We worked a long time for this,” said Travis
Patterson, a biology junior.

Keynote speaker Harry Caldwell, the national
treasurer of Pi Kappa Phi, said, “This is a celebra-
tion of a cup of people who set goals and accom-
plished t em. One of our goals we have accom-
plished is this chapter is now on equal footing with
every other chapter on this campus.”

Amy Wells, new student programming coordi-
nator, said Pi Kappa Phi has contributed much to
UK since its be 'nning.

Pi Kap mem rs made up 15 percent of the fall
orientation counselors. In addition, Pi Kappa Phi
fraternity started its own philanthropy, Push

The UK chapter now joins the 135 Pi Kap

M811 tie III] Eagles

One UK team was successful
at the new soccer stadium while
one UK team couldn’t score a

First the bad.

The play of UK’s men’s soc-
cer team yesterday was almost as
sloppy as the field condition.
The new soccer field dwindled
to a mud pie, and UK floun-
dered around without a sin le
goal as they tied Eastern Mic i-
gan 0- 0 1n overtime.

It was the Wildcats’ final
Mid- American Conference
garime before the tournament

ov. 15-17. However, it didn’t
leave them much to build on.

“There were unbelievably
easy chances that we just
missed,” UK Coach Ian Collins

The Cats managed 18 shots,
including some close shots in the
second half and overtime peri-

One of those shots was off the
foot of Sean Mondelli in the first
overtime period. Mondelli hit a
shot that just barely missed
going in. Instead, it hit the cor-
ner of the crossbar and went out.
To him, it was just an example of
what had happened all day.

“Just like the other ones I
had, wide open,” Mondelli said.
“I just had an awful day.”

As the second overtime peri-
od wound down, UK had one
last real chance. With 26 sec-
onds left, Michael Stickler had a
shot in front of the EMU goal
off a pass from Sean Endicott.
However, the shot was wide, and
UK was left in a tie.

UK lost senior Toby McCo—
mas to an injury early in the
game, and he 15 listed as day-to-
day. He was injured in front of
the goal, and was unable to
return to the game.

The tie dropped UK to 7- 6- 3,
2-2-1 in the MAC. This leaves
UK in third place going into the
tournament, and they could very
well draw EMU in the first



But unlike the men’s team
which has yet to win at the new
stadium, the UK women’s soccer
team had success in their first
game on Friday

Kim LaBel e ’5 goal off a tip-
in from a Beth Raynolds pass at
69:14 was the game winner as
UK defeated Vanderbilt 2- 1.

“We were very nervous to
come out here and lay,”
LaBelle said. “We all had e 'it-
ters but once we got into t
rhythm, I felt that we played bet-
ter than them.”

A goal by Alison Rooney,
coupled with LaBelIe’ s ave UK
their first ever win at eir new
soccer stadium, which still does
not have a name.

This was the final weekend of
conference play for the Cats.
The win over Vand and UK’s
win at LSU yesterd’ay put the
Cats 1n a tie for second place in
the Southeastern Conference’s
East Division along with Geor-

g1 But because Georgia beat UK
earlier in the season, the Cats
will be the No. 3 seed out of the
East Division for the SEC Tour—
nament which takes place in two
weeks in Lexington.
