It was a bittersweet year for Coach Gary
Fallon's defending ODAC champions. On
a cold, windswept Movember day in
Washington, the Generals nnanaged to nail
down a third consecutive winning season
(5-4) by edging Georgetown 6-0 on a fif-
teen yard touchdown pass from sopho-
more quarterback John Thompson to se-
nior flanker Jerry Thompson.

But there were some frustrating mo-
ments along the way. "We played in a wind
which took away most of our passing
game. We had troubles with kick-offs,
snaps . . . We missed a pair of first-and-
goal opportunities in the first half," noted

The problems encountered on the last
day of the season mirrored similar frustra-
tions during the season. All-ODAC quarter-
back Al Paradise went down with an injury
in the homecoming game against Ran-
dolph-Macon . . . Hampden-Sydney pre-
vailed 3-0 on Wilson Field ... Six second
half turnovers undid a 20-7 halftime lead
against Sewanee.

But as in the final game, the Generals
overcame adversity. 'Tm pleased with the
way we bounced back . . . our players
could have just washed out the remaining
games, " said Fallon.

By season's end, the bad taste was gone.
The Generals ripped Catholic 41-0 in the
final home game for the team's seniors.
The offense rolled into high gear behind
alternating quarterbacks John Thompson,
who threw for two touchdowns, and Para-
dise, who ran for two scores. Senior end
Ken Manganieilo — one of the tri-captains
along with Chris Cavalline and senior wide
receiver Phil Hrabar — led an inspired de-
fensive effort with three quarterback sacks.
Senior multi-purpose back Cavalline was
named to the All-Conference first team
along with Manganieilo, senior offensive
tackle Andy Foley and junior center Glenn
Kirschner. Foley, Kirschner and Cavalline,
who was last year's ODAC player of the
year, were selected for the second straight

nior fullback Ken Robinson contributed
200 yards on the ground, sophomore tail-
back Gene Girard picked up 145 yards
rushing and freshman Frank Surface
added 120 yards. Cavalline and Jerry
Thompson led the team in catches with 1 9
a piece.

Defensively, the Generals were tops in
the conference for the second year in a row.
Manganieilo led the way with 55 solo tack-
les, including 14 for losses: senior lineback-
er Don Kellerman added 49 solo efforts to
go with the two fumble recoveries and an
interception. Senior safetyman Marty
Thomas, who had 36 solo efforts, inter-
cepted five passes on the season. Sopho-
more cornerback Scott Henderson had
four interceptions and junior safety Bob
Jenevein three.

Second team all ODAC selections in-
cluded Jerry Thompson, junior tight end
Dave Judge, junior guard Dan Seal, junior
linebacker John Cole, senior place kicker
Bill Devine, junior guard Craig Reiliy and
safety man Thomas.

Cavalline closed out a brilliant career at
W&L The dynamic tailback accumulated
2,086 yards rushing, a school record 152
points scored, a 34.8 yard average on 1 32
career punts and 764 yards on 62 catches.

Cavalline led the team in rushing with
483 yards on 155 carries this season. Se-

It was a fall filled with success for the
Generals cross country team. The harriers
had never finished higher than fourth in the
ODAC in the league's seven year existence,
but behind a pair of All-Conference runners
they won the conference crown in competi-
tion at W&L.

Junior Angus McBryde and sophomore

Frank Pittman paced the Generals in the
conference showdown against defending
ODAC champion Roanoke College, Lynch-
burg, Catholic, Bridgewater, E&H and
Hanpden-Sydney. McBryde finished sec-
ond overall and Pittman fifth in the 56-
runner field and were accorded All-
Conference honors for their efforts.
McBryde, who was All-Conference a year
ago as the Generals posted an 8-3 mark in

dual meets, ran the 8000 meter course in
26:57, just 17 seconds off the pace. He ran
a 25;47 in last year's Regionals.

Senior captain Jon Kelafant finished
ninth, freshman Bob Glenn 12th and fresh-
man Ron Moody 17th to complete the
Generals scoring.

McBryde, Pittman, Kelafant, Glenn and
junior Paul Chapman competed in the
MCAA Division 111 South Regional Qual-
ilying Meet in Lynchburg to conclude the
season. The Generals finished fourth in the
eleven-team field with McBryde finishing
sixth overall. In the 79-runner field Pittman
finished 11th, Kelafant 16th, Glenn 31st
and Chapman 37th.

The Generals' veteran coach Dick Miller
was named ODAC Coach of the Year to cap
the storybook season. In his 31 st season as
the cross country coach. Miller led the team
to a 10-2 dual meet mark, which tied his
1977 team (10-5) for most wins in a sea-
son. Posting his eleventh winning season in
the last thirteen years, and 22nd winning
season overall. Miller also recorded his
180th career cross country meet win.

Said Miller, "It was simply a sake of how
much everybody wanted the title. Our run-
ners wanted it more ..." Holding the com-
petition on the W&L course, combined with
the fact that the Generals had never
finished higher than fourth in the Confer-
ence standings, had to make the season
even more satisfying to the man who has
given so much of his life to W&L athletics.


Seventh-year coach Rolf Piranian's
senior-laden corps turned In an 8-3-2
record, including three consecutive wins to
end the season, and a second place confer-
ence finish in a season filled with high

"We said before the season began that to
be successful we'd have to get good play
and leadership fronn the seniors. They lived
up to that challenge. They're the best
seniors I've worked with, " said Piranian.

Returning eighteen lettermen, including
seniors Tad Renner on defense, Tom Elder
at forward. Goalie Kirk Mancer, nnidfielder
MarkCarduner, forward Brad Poorman and
forward Jerry Moyer, the team notched
several memorable achievements.

Piranian's veteran crew whipped VMl 3-1
in the second annual United Way Collegiate
Cup. Sophomore defenseman Rob Cole-
man, junior Ted Petrides and sophomore
Gary Clements tallied in the big win.

Earlier in the season the Generals had
narrowly missed upsetting ODAC power-
house Lynchburg College before settling
for a 1-1 overtime tie. Freshman Bill
Holmes, a starter at forward, scored the

lone W&L goal.

The Generals stayed in the running for a
Division 111 play-off spot throughout most of
the season, and as it turned out barely
missed qualifying for the Va. Intercollegiate
Soccer Association Tournament.

The Generals set a school record by
scoring 38 goals. Poorman led the team
with 10 goals, including three in the 7-1
victory over Maryville, and Holmes added
five goals. Coleman scored four. Elder four
and junior midfielder Roland Simon had
three goals. Poorman, Carduner and Moyer
led the team with four assists each.

Senior goaltender Mancer finished with
eleven career shutouts, including a pair in
the final two games of the season, to tie
Kevin Carney's 1980 school record. On the
season, Mancer recorded 71 saves and
allowed just 11 goals all year.

Renner and Carduner were the Generals
co-captains. Renner, a four year starter, and
Poorman were named first team all ODAC
performers while Carduner was named to
the second team. It was the second straight
first team selection for Renner.

Renner, Poorman and Simon were
chosen to play in the 12th annual Va. Inter-
collegiate Soccer Association East-West
All-Star Match at season's end.

Logging another highly impressive campaign,
Page Remiilard's water polo stalwarts finished 26-
9 and successfully defended the Southern League

Coming off a 31-5 mark a year ago, the team
was led by the first team Division 111 Ail-American
Erik Peterson and featured returning starters ju-
nior Rand McClain, junior Tim Rock, junior Matt
Ravencraft, junior Kevin Kadesky and sophomore
Bobby Pearson.

One of the season's highlights was a big 16-11
win over Slippery Rock State in the Bucknell In-
vitational. The long elusive win was the General's
first in the eight tries against the perennial water
polo power.

The defending state champions lost this sea-
son's title match to Richmond 12-11. Remiilard's
team avenged the setback by rallying from a 5-3
halftime deficit to down Richmond 13-7 in the
finals of the Southern League Championships.
Wins over Duke 16-5, UlSC-Wilmington 14-4,
George Washington 12-1 and (JVA 22-6 led to the
title, which gave the Generals a berth in the East-
ern Championships in Indianapolis.

Peterson, McClain, Ravencraft, Rock and Peter-
son were named to the Southern All-League

The sixth-seeded Generals met third-seeded
Navy in the opening round of the Eastern Cham-
pionships. Having lost twice to the Midshipmen
during the regular season 19-18 and 18-16, the
Generals built an 8-6 third quarter lead. Navy
came back to go ahead 11-10, but Peterson fired
in a goal to tie the score at 1 1-1 1 with 37 seconds
left to play. However, Navy got a man-up goal with
just 1 1 seconds to play. A last second shot by
Peterson, who had thirteen goals in Indianapolis in
three games, caroomed off of the goal post and
the Generals went down to a heartbreaking defeat.

"Those last 11 seconds were the difference
between our being third in the championship and
being seventh. We'll spend the next nine months
working to make up those 1 1 seconds, " said Re-
millard, whose four-year record at W&L is a spark-
ling 94-35.

Peterson and goalie Kevin Kadesky were
accorded second team All-East honors for their
play in Indianapolis. The Generals lost to Harvard
1 1 -9 after falling to Navy, but came back to romp
past Richmond 20-3 and finish seventh in the

Peterson fired home 1 24 goals on the season to
lead the team. McClain scored 81 goals, Raven-
craft 81 and Rock 68.


Generals' basketball reached two mile-
stones during the 14th annual W & L Invita-
tional, which the hosts won with a 1 15-73
thumping of Lebanon Valley in the finals.

Coach Verne Canfield. in his 1 9th season
as the Generals' basketball mentor, logged
his 300th career win. He finished the sea-
son with a 310-178 mark and with his 16th
winning season at W & L The 115 points
scored against Lebanon Valley also repre-
sented the most points ever scored by a
Canfield team at W & L. Junior guard Bill
Yates was named the tournament MVP.

Meanwhile, 6-5 senior forward Brian
Hanson, who was accorded first team All-
Conference honors for the second year in a
row, became only the 12th player in school
history to score 1 ,000 points in a career.
Hanson, who averaged 16.0 points per
game and 8.3 rebounds, was later named
to the Division 111 South Atlantic Regional
All-Star Team.

Led by senior captains Hanson, Frank
Eppes and Jay Fechtel, the Generals
wound up with a 1 7- 1 mark on the season,
bowing out of the Conference cham-
pionships with a 65-60 loss to Roanoke
College in the semifinals. A late rally by the
Generals fell short.

An earlier loss to Roanoke, the defending
ODAC champions and the second ranked
team in the nation, was a season highlight
nonetheless. The Generals led Roanoke
20-6, and 41-29 at the half in what Canfield
termed, 'One of the best games ever
played in the Conference.

The Generals were clinging to a 65-61
lead with four minutes left before the Ma-
roons went ahead 67-65. Junior forward
John Lee Graves tied the score with just
over two minutes to play but Roanoke went
back in front 69-67. Finally 6-10 senior
center Frank Eppes dropped in a layup with
eight seconds left to send the game into

After the first overtime period ended in a
still unresolved tie, Roanoke took an 83-80
lead with 19 seconds remaining in the sec-
ond OT period. But Yates knocked in a long
three pointer with seven seconds left to
send the game into a third overtime where
the Maroons eventually prevailed. Graves

After a 4-4 dual match record. Page Re-
millard's swimmers qualified five indi-
viduals for the NCAA Division 111 Cham-
pionships held March 15-16-17.

At the Virginia Senior Championships in
Blacksburg, junior Gary Meyer qualified in
the 100-yard freestyle and sophomore Ta-
ber Smith earned a spot on the 400-yard
freestyle relay team.

A week earlier at Wilmington, sopho-
more Bobby Pearson, sophomore Tim
Stanford and freshman John Moody all
qualified for the championships.

Moody, Pearson, Meyer and Stanford
swam in the 800-yard freestyle relay team;
Meyer, Smith, Moody and Pearson com-
peted in the 400-yard relay event; Moody
qualified in the 1 00-yard; and Meyer in the
50-yard freestyle.

Freshman David Lewis posted a person-
al best time in the 200-yard freestyle at the
Virginia Championships.


Fifth-year Head Coach Gary Franke and company pro-
duced an outstanding 9-2 wrestling nnark in 1983, highlight-
ed by a second place finish in the W & L College Invitational.

The second place finish in the eight-team field was the
result of eight individual wins, giving the hosts eight top-four
finishers. Freshman Larry Anker at 134 won an individual
crown; freshman Win Phillips at 158 took second place
honors; sophomore Jeff Dixon at 1 90, freshman Andy Foley
at 1 26 and junior Tim White at 1 50 won third place honors;
and junior team captain Tim Valliere at 167, junior
heavyweight Carlton Peebles and freshman Brian Lifsted at
118 recorded fourth place finishes.

Other highlights during the season included wins over
Davidson 36- 1 9, Loyola 47-3 and Hampden-Sydney 42-8 in
a quadrangular match victory that included wins by Dixon,
Valliere (3), White (3), Phillips (2), Foley, Anker and senior
Win Sisson at 142.

Six Generals picked up pins against Furman — Dixon,
Anker, Sisson, White, Phillips and Dave Johnston at 177.
White, Peebles and Dave Nichols at 134 had pins against

In the season finale against Longwood, Peebles scored a
two-point takedown in the final seconds of his match to win
7-6 and give the Generals the dual match to win.

Five Generals went to Trenton, N.J. to participate in the
NCAA Division 111 East Regional Tournament. Dixon was
fourth at 190 in the regionals.

Last season Jim Murdock's baseball
Generals lost six one-run gannes and three
two-run games on the way to a 9-20 ledger.

"Winning half of those games would
have given us a winning record, so this
spring we're going to be more aggressive at
the plate, on the base paths and on the
mound. We'll see if we can turn those close
games in our favor, " says the second-year
head coach.

With three returning pitchers and six
other starters back, the Generals should
turn things around in 1983.

Heading the list of returnees are senior
co-captains Jody Harris and Chris Caval-
line. Harris begins his third year at shortstop
after batting .260 a year ago (he hit .348 in
1 981 ) and swiping 1 2 bases in 1 5 attempts.
Cavalline will be the regular centerfielder in
1983, where his speed can be utilized the
best. Last season the versatile star split time
between second base and rightfield. He hit
.340 and ripped four home runs a year ago,
following marks of .360 in 1 981 and .348 in

The other returning starters are se-
nior Jim Daley (.260 in 1982 and .333
in 1981) who switches from rightfield
to leftfield this season; Junior Dave
Warrenfeltz, who begins his third sea-
son at third base; Junior Kevin Golden
will be at second base, where he teams
well with shortstop Harris; Junior Mike
Walsh, who will make the move from
leftfield to first base this spring; sopho-
more Mike Jacoby, who will be the
starting catcher after duty last spring as
the "double-header catcher; " and
freshman Hugh Finkelstein will open in

The Generals have a wealth of pitch-
ing talent, led by sophomore Billy
White, who was 1 -3 a year ago and led
the staff with a 3.69 ERA in 53.7 in-
nings. Seniors Mary Thomas and Jim
Stanley are joined by senior newcomer
Pat Jordan and freshman Kirk Breen to
form the nucleus of the staff.






It was another winning season for veteran
coach Buck Leslie's linksnnen in 1982, who
finished the regular season with a 6-0 dual
match ledger before winding up third in the
ODAC tournament.

While finishing just two shots behind
conference champion Lynchburg at the
tournament in Farmville, the team placed
two members on the All-Conference
squad. The Generals who earned the con-
ference honors were Jim Kaplan (80-72,
fifth place) and senior Bill Alfano, who
finished sixth overall in tournament play.

Leslie, who has led the Generals to an
87-11 dual match record and two confer-
ence titles in his eight seasons since replac-
ing the legendary Cy Twombly, has three
lettermen returning in 1983: senior Tim
Webb and juniors Bruce Blythe and Whit
Kelly. Joining this trio will be seniors Frank
English and Mike Gregory.

Blythe and Kelly have been named co-
captains for 1983.



In his fourth year at the helm of the tennis
team, Coach Gary Franke led a well-
balanced squad to a third-place ODAC fin-
ish in 1982. Four Generals took second
place honors. Wes Younge teamed with
junior Jim Irwin for runner-up honors in
doubles. Sophomores Andy Haring and
Steve Bendheim were runners-up in

For 1983's 23-match schedule, Franke
has plenty of talent available. The team is
led by junior captain Craig Cannon, Irwin
and Haring. They are joined by senior Steve
Denny and junior Charlie Kalocsay, both
two-year lettermen.

The squad is rounded out by sopho-
mores Van Archer, Anthonie Frens and
Gordon Ogden, and freshmen Scott
Adams and Jim Culnane.

Head Coach Morris Aldridge has plenty
of talent — including 14 team members
who scored in dual matches in 1982 —
returning from his 7-2, third-place ODAC
outdoor track team.

Junior Angus McBryde won the 1500-
meter at the conference championships
last spring; Senior Alan Armitage finished
second in the 1 10-meter high hurdlej and
third in the 60-yard hurdles in the indoor
conference meet; Senior Gene Fellin was
second in the pole vault (indoor and out-
door championship meets) and senior
Sparky Anderson finished second in the

School record holders include Armitage,
one of the team's tri-captains along with
senior weightman Eric Nelson and
McBryde, who holds the record (15.7) in
the 110-meter hurdles; Fellin, whose 14-0
is the top school pole vault mark; and junior
Kevin Kadesky, sophomore Chris Busbee
and sophomore Chris Ives, three members
of the record-holding 400-meter relay team

Also on hand for the Generals will be
junior weightman Charlie Alcorn (third
place conference finishes in the shot and
discus); junior Paul Chapman, a distan-
ceman; sophomore Mark Pembroke, who
finished third in the 800-meters in the con-
ference championships; and sophomore
Martin Pruitt.

Sophomore Scott Henderson, who was
third in the 400-meter hurdles in the cham-
pionships and sophomore Frank Pittman
will also be counted upon for scoring.

Led by tri-captains Rob Staugaitis, Mike
Schuler and Mike Pressier, the 1982 la-
crosse Generals posted a 9-4 mark and just
missed an invitation to the NCAA Division I

"We had a spot at being selected for the
playoffs and were a little disappointed, but
we weren't disappointed in our season,"
said Coach Jack Emmer.

The Generals got off to a splendid 6-1
start before losses to CJVA, CJNC and Syra-
cuse dimmed playoff hopes considerably.

After a frustrating 22-8 setback against
Virginia, the Generals tried a slowdown
against top-ranked North Carolina.
Washington and Lee hung close, but even-
tually wound up on the short end of an 1 1 -8

Then came a heartbreaking 15-14 loss
to Syracuse and W & L tumbled to 12th in
the polls with a 6-4 record. Midfielder John
Doub, one of this year's co-captains along
with senior midfielder John Tunney, said,
"We came to play and they came to play
... we lost it right at the end."

"The guys were a little down after the

Field. Left: Junior Tim Schurr. Bottom Left: Senior Al

P mmm

Syracuse game," he said.

But the Generals rebounded to topple,
Raonoke College 11-10, and Hofstra 1?-^
10, before routing UMBC 19-8 on the sea-
son's final day. With a possible playoff berth
on the line, the Generals came out and
jumped to a quick 8-1 lead and never re-
laxed against a fine Retrievers team that
had given CJVA all it wanted.

Clnfortunately the romp was overlooked
by the selection committee. Navy, which
had nipped the Generals 1 1 - 1 in overtime,
was awarded the eighth seed in the tourna-

The Generals face 1983, a touch sched-
ule that includes CIVA, Maryland, GNC, and
Syracuse without a proven feeder. Gradua-
tion losses included quarterback
Staugaitis, the all-time leading assist-man
in the school's history; John Sancilio, who
had more goals in one season (35) than
any midfielder in W & L history; and Schul-
er, of whom Emmer said, "He possessed
more fundamental skill than any member
of the team." Together the three combined
for 58 of the team's 90 assists.

Pressier, a three year attackman who was
switched to defense for his final season, big
defenseman Dave Nickels, and goalie Ware
Palmer also were lost to graduation.

Emmer, in his eleventh season as head
coach and looking for a return to post-
season play after a two-year absence, will
look to senior middle Doub, senior middle
Tunney, senior attackman Geoff Wood and
senior defenseman Newton Kendrick for
leadership this season. Junior goalie Phil
Aiken, junior attackman Lee Heimert (28
goals in '82), senior middle John Buttarazzi
and sophomore attackman Rod Santo-
massimo also are counted on to be key

On defense, Emmer can count on Veter-
ans Steve Conboy, Tim Schurr, Don
Richardson and Bill Sharp. Face-off spe-
cialists Tunney and sophomore Rich
Schoenberg are proven performers and
Emmer has no need for worry here. He
must replace Staugaitis, and he will be
looking to senior Joe Seifert, senior Mike
Lewers and Santomassimo to fill the quar-
terback shoes.
