Notebook: Central Florida wants out of WVU game

| Friday, Jan. 21, 2005

Central Florida wants out of a scheduled football game at West Virginia next fall. Ahletic director Steve Orsini has informed West Virginia that the Golden Knights don't plan to return to Mountaineer Field for the final game of a three-game series. He said Central Florida will try to find West Virginia another opponent or pay a $50,000 buyout fee stipulated in a contract signed in 1993. Said West Virginia athletic director Ed Pastilong: "Our loss is considerably more than $50,000. We've informed them we're strongly considering suing them."

  • Westminster (Pa.) announced that longtime women's tennis coach S. Kipley Haas will retire at the end of the current academic year after serving the college for 35 years as an educator and coach. Her 14-year coaching record at the school is 79-81-4, which includes five conference championships.

  • Lock Haven football coach Mark Luther, who compiled a five-year record of 16-39 with the Bald Eagles, has been reassigned within the university, athletic director Sharon Taylor announced. Assistant coach Terry Szucs will serve as interim head coach until a successor is named, and the remainder of the current staff will be retained, Taylor said.

  • Senior guard Abby Moose of Grove City and senior forward Pat O'Connor of Westminster (Pa.) were the latest basketball players to reach 1,000 career points.

  • Penn State announced that the time of its men's and women's swimming and diving meet with Rutgers at McCoy Natatorium has been moved up two hours to 11 a.m. because of pending inclement weather forecasts.
