Some stay at the top or near it. They do so by con- tinually bringing in talented play- ers, most of whom are freshmen. St. John's moved to third place this year after firing Fran Frashilla and hiring Mike Jarvis from George Washington. Miami continued its upward trend, finishing second. And UConn stayed atop the league by complimenting its many returnees with two quality recuits. Seton Hall will continue to im- prove as long as Tommy Amaker stays as its coach. Georgetown, with Craig Esherick assuming command ai~r John Thompson re- signed, should be improved in the next few years West Virginia will jettison a sig- nificant number of the players from its 10-19 team. To reach a place higher than the l lth slot the Mountaineers plunged to in 1998-99, the new faces for next season have to be a significant improvement over those departing or another second division finish awaits in 1999- 2000. At least eight of the Big East schools will not come back to West Virginia's fallen niche. The Moun- taineers must rise to their levels. And to rise will take an influx of talented players, who together with what players are retained, will total at least eight Big East- caliber athletes. In its most recent match, Shepherd's golf team defeated Shenandoah University, 322-348, at the Winchester Country Club on Tuesday. Jason Pierson and Ian Elkin were the Rams low medalists. The Rams finished eighth in the Concord College Invitational held this past weekend at Pipestem Country Club in southern West Virginia. Pierson and Ross Shapiro tied for 14th place among the 55 golf- ers who participated in that tournament. Sophomore Laurie Rendeiro Byrer and Portrey and Emily and veterans Ashley Portrey and Molar.

Seniors Beth Vickers (catcher), Melissa Rakes (second base), Amanda Burke (first base) and Colleen Armstrong (outfielder) were all regulars on last year's resurgent team. Gena Staubs (third base), Amy Edwards (centerfield), Angle Martinsburg on another occasion. Both Hockman and Magaha pitched against Martinsburg last season and both did well. Staubs and Edwards could prove to be the Lady Cougars top hitters as beth hit well in important games in 1998. Vickers also contributed important hits at crucial times. Key losses from last year's team include Shelly Smoot, Megan Polen, and Nikki Carone. Governl Erin Fargo, daughter of Frank and Tracy Fargo, was selected as Outstanding Cheerleader at the Panther Classic at Charles Town Jun. ior High.
