Behrend hooters defeat Indiana, tie John Carroll by Jim Parachini Collegian Sports Editor Give up a goal or two and then play like gangbusters. That seems to be the tempo the Behrend booters are playing to after their first three contests. After a tough, 1-0 openinggame loss to the University of Buffalo, the Cubs bounced back to post a 1-0-1 record on a twogame homestand. Initially was a 3-2 homeopening victory over Division II opponent Indiana University (PA) on Sept. 11. What followed was a 2-2 tie against John Carroll University, a Division III school from Cleveland, Ohio, on Sept. 14. In the triumph over Indiana Behrend fell behind, 1-0 only five minutes into the contest. The Cubs then led 2-1 at the half before winning a close match due to a fine second half performance. John Carroll had a 2-0 lead after only nine minutes had elapsed against the Cubs in their second home match. The Blue Streaks were dominating play and things did not look good for a second consecutive B...

Blind softball team to visit Behrend Could you play softball blindfolded? "Blind at Bats" is a squad of blind participants who play a version of baseball called "beepball". A special ball is used which is twice the size of a softball and contains a built-in beeper. The team from Washington, Pa is managed and organized by Brian Weber, who will bring his team to Behrend, Saturday. The game starts at 12:30 p.m. on the soccer field with the blind team to face a blindfold team comprised of one person from each floor of the dorms. . The rules state that the pitcher must call out "pitch" and then pitch the ball to the batter. If he hits it, he runs to first or third base (the opposite way the ball is hit), the buzzer onthe base is activated and the batter runs toward the buzzing base. The fielder; whose name is called out by the spotter, must find the ball before the batter reaches base. If the batter reaches the base before the fielder finds the ball one run is scored. If the fiel...

Tennis team perfect in home opener by Jim Parachini Collegian Sports Editor Adjectives such as impressive, magnificant or grand go out the window in an attempt to describe the women's tennis teams' homeopening match. In this case such accolades still serve as an underestimation of what was achieved. Simply put the Lady Cubs were down right perfect against Thiel College on Sept. 17. Rain washed away Behrend's first scheduled home-match against Mercyhurst, Sept. 10. The Lady Cubs following match was also postponed due to rain, Sept. 12, which was a visiting contest vs. Gannon University. Before the crushing of Thiel came Behrend's first win of the year which was a close 5-4 decision over SUNY-Fredonia on sept. 14. We're constantly improving as the matches go on," saic fourth-year head coach Pam Fischer. "This is the best team I've had here so far - best attitude, skill and a group of girls." Against Thiel the Lady Cubs did not even lose a single set. Freshman Mary Beth Grimes,...

The entire Pennsylvania State University system will change. Revising the undergraduate grading system has been under consideration by the University Faculy Senate and its committee for several years. "On April 30, 1985, the Senate approved a plus/minus grading system by a narrow margin.
