Bugle corps moves to Lexington
from Alabama, gets new start

By Ellen Lord


A different beat marched
into Lexington yesterday.

The Southwind Drum and
Bugle Corps. a group of 128
musicians ages 15 to 21 who
perform and compete through-
out the world, announced its
relocation from Montgomery.
Ala. to Lexington.

The move will allow L'K
students. who have traveled
across the country to partici-
pate in such corps. to play
without having to travel near-
ly as far for weekend camps.

“The whole traveling as


pect sometimes keeps people
from going different corps."
said Mark Hunter. a music eds
ucation sophomore who trav-
els to Chicago to play percus-
sion in a different corps.

“I have to travel here and
back a full weekend once a
month." he said.

Several L'K students and
other Lexington residents
traveled from Kentucky to
play in the corps when it was
in Montgomery. said Brett
Owens. a UK doctoral student
in educational policy studies
and evaluation. who does con-
sulting for the corps.

The group is still accept-

ing applications for the 1.30 po
sitions iii its December camp.
The corps had already re-
ceived about 1300. he said.

The corps will hold week-
end camps once a month dur
ing the winter and then per-
form all summer. Owens

Next summer. the group
will perform more than 3.3
times in front of audiences
that range from 2.000 to 20.000
people. The corps plans to per-
form in Lexington in the 4th of
July parade and on several
days in mid-July.

"When they‘re on the
road. their schedule more or
less will be ride the bus to a lo
cation. practice all day. put on
a uniform attd perform. ride
the bus to a location. practice
all day." Owens said.

When Madison Drutn

cause of l'K students and oth~

were also factors.

seek higher educa-
tion. This has
prompted the Ken-
tucky Higher Education Assistance Au-
thority (KHEAA) to develop what is known
as the Kentucky Education Excellence
Scholarship tKEESi.

The scholarship awards high school
students with a grade-point 21"». crage of 2.5
with automatic scholarships to Kentucky
colleges or technical schools.

If students continue to make good
grades in college. the scholarship can be re-
tained. Students who are enrolled in high
school for the 199899 school year will be
the first students who earn scholarships
based on their high school performance.

Members of the graduating class of
1999 will be eligible for scholarships based
on the senior year GPA and bonus awards
based on their ACT score.

High school juniors who graduate in
2000 will receive scholarships based on
their (EPA for their junior and senior years
and a bonus based on their highest ACT
score. Grades earned before the 1998-1999
school year aren‘t considered.

Students must have an annual 2.5 GPA
for the base amount of the scholarship and
a 1.3 or better ACT score or equivalent SAT
score for the bonus award.

Amounts are subject to future adjust-
ment based on availability of funds. Bonus
awards of up to 8000 are given to those with
a 28 or above ACT score. Those who score a
minimum amount of at least 15 also receive
a bonus of $21.

Students do not even have to apply for
the scholarship. Each high school will pro
vide information about eligible students to
the Kentucky Department of Education
who will then give the student data to
KHEAA. KHEAA will send award notifica»

Stickler sticks
to scoring role

Wildcat forward looks for openings, receives
passes from teammates and closes on goals

.1 m Cook

A target forward: The play-
er who gets into the open near
the goal and takes the crossing
passes from a speeding mid-
fielder or wing and eludes the
defense to put the ball in net.

Michael Stickler is a target

“People play around me
near the goal," he said. “They
distribute the ball to me."

And Stickler does the rest.
He sinks the goals.

It is a skill that nabbed him
the Mid-American Conference
Player of the Week award last
week after a two-goal, three-as-
sist game against Western

“I was there at the right
time to finish.” Stickler said.

The UK forward struggled
early in the season. He went 13
games and more than 14 shots
on goal without a score. As the
season progressed. Stickler’s
role, and his understanding of
that role, evolved.

“He has gotten a little
meaner around the goal." assis-
tant coach Jefi‘ Chaney said.

Chaney said the award was
a surprise. not because Stickler
is incapable. but because of his
scoring slump.

While he was unable to fin-
ish many of the opportunities
provided during his slump.
Stickler said. the opportunities
were there.

Stickler broke out of his

drought against Marshall, and
has scored four goals over the
last four MAC games. He assist-
ed on the gamewinner against
Marshall on Oct. 2, and sunk
the game winner against West-
ern Michigan on Oct. 4.

“Early in the season he was
letting people push him
around.“ Chaney said. ”Now
people are having a hard time
containing him."

In a streak-breaking. heart-
breaking loss to Akron on Oct.
11, Stickler shined. He dominat-
ed in the air, winning every
header he competed for.
Chaney said.

“I have a new attitude."
Stickler said. “I'm just going
out to have fun."

The change in attitude has
taken the pressure off the L'K
forward and enabled him to
concentrate on scoring goals.

Two goals have always
dominated Stickler‘s thinking.
His first goal was to play soccer
for a strong college team. That
goal was accomplished when he
started for UK.

His second goal is to play
professional soccer. Stickler's

favorite team. the one he
dreams of playing for. is Major
League Soccer‘s Columbus

"If it happened. it would be
great." Stickler said. "I‘m not
banking on it. but it is always a

goal without trouble and if he

Michael Stickler kicked during practice yesterday. The UK target forward
has scored four goals over his last four games.

his last few games. that second
goal may not be out of reach.

“He's hot." Chaney said.

Stickler does not live for
the accolades of the fans or for
trophies like the MAC Player-

“I do what it takes to help
the team. to win." he said.

His importance to the team
is apparent: They call to him on
the field.

The team knows he is a
power striker and with the new
attitude he is showing, the team
passes the ball to him with
growing confidence.

“He is playing well within
our system." Chaney said.

The coaching staff will be
looking to Stickler more in the

upcoming battles in the MAC.
The team faces off against the
number two team in the nation.
Indiana. at the UK Soccer Com~
plex on Oct. 21.

The game promises to be a
hard fought and physical.
Stickler‘s dominance in the air
will be a key factor. Chaney

The MAC Tournament.
with the first two games played
at the L'K Soccer Complex on
Nov. (318, will provide Stickler
with ample opportunity to
showcase his teamwork and his
finishing skills.

“it will be an interesting
tournament.“ Stickler said. “es-
pecially since it‘s on our own
turf. That is a big advantage."

Cats' last trip to Louisiana in
1996. isn‘t exaggerating. The
LSL' fans have a reputation of
being less than hospitable to
their guests. even to the point
where it isn‘t uncommon to see
various objects hurtling to-
wards the field from the bleach
ers above. Senior center Jason
Watts. who did travel to Death
Valley in 1996. said the Swamp
in Florida can‘t hold a candle to
the 80.0005eat Tiger Stadium.

“it's louder than Florida by
a lot." Watts said. “it‘s the loud-
est place l‘ve ever been. The
fans are just crazy. They party
pretty hard before they come

into the games."

But not all the Cats are ex-
actly sure what gives LSU (3-2. 1-
2) such a home-field advantage.

"It‘s a lot like Florida." se~
nior wide receiver Craig Yeast
said. "What separates it from
Florida is that the fans are a lot
louder. I know it's hostile. but i
don't know if those fans are
drinking or what."

it doesn‘t matter if the fans
have been drinking or not.
when Saturday nights roll
around on the Bayou. it's time
to get raucous. So raucous. that
several years ago. a nearby
seismology laboratory regis-
tered a minor earthquake after
the Tigers scored a touchdown.

For UK to emerge from the
jungle unscathed. it must take
the crowd out of the ball game.
planting a seed of doubt in their
minds, Major said.

"We‘ve gotta be prepared."
Major said. “The biggest part is
focusing and not letting the
crowd take us out of our game. At
Florida we kinda took the crowd
out of the game early on. They
were worried that we could win."

UK's experience in the
Swamp should help the
younger guys deal with the
noise and havoc a crowd like
LSU‘s can create. Yeast said.

“From the Florida game,
we have a pretty good idea (of
the noise)." Yeast said. “The
only difference is. LSL‘ will be a
little louder."

Watts agreed.

“The younger guys are
ready for it." Watts said. "After
Florida. they are ready. We
won't have to say much until
right before game time. then
we'll tell them it will be loud."

To combat the noise prob-
lem, UK will practice with loud
speakers in the background on
Thursday to try and simulate
the experience. Major said he
hopes the practice will help. but
knows the Cats must be pre-
pared to play under the duress.

"(The noise) is rough." Ma-
jor said. “I know on about 10
plays against Florida we could»
n't hear the play. so we just
we're just like ‘Damn. play base
D'. For this week. we have our
base defense and if we don't get
the cal]. we‘lljust play like hell."

The Cats know a win over
mighty LSU in Baton Rouge.
something UK has accom-
plished only four times in 25 at-
tempts. would send their
dreams of playing in a major
bowl to a whole new level.

"(A win) would be tremen-
dous." Watts said. “it would be
a turning point in our season
and help us in our bowl quest."

Yeast is confident in the

“It‘s a win we can get."
