((Before the Mono nucleosis, K.J. was undefeated in singles play and his momentary illness is the only thing that will cause him to lose his number one ranking in February. Nothing can side track his ultimate dream. ((:))
He's always been self motivated, but this season, some of his inspiration came all the way from Blacksburg. ((:)) Athletic ability is just the beginning. Last year, he played in the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open juniors division and shared a locker room with Pete Sampras. ((:))
Hippensteel's feet remain firmly planted on the ground. This past summer, he helped with a tennis clinic in Roanoke.
((:))
K.J. should return to the courts anywhere from six to ten weeks. Steve Mason, news 7 sports.))

"Little E" is working on getting his Budweiser racing team all set for the 2000 campaign, but a couple of weeks ago his mind was anywhere but on the track. While in Los Angeles to claim his second Busch Grand National driving title, Dale Junior had a chance to meet actress Jennifer Love Hewitt. We asked him about the encounter while on the NASCAR Media tour last week.

Hokie Toasties hit many area store shelves today.
Some fans at Blacksburg's Kroger were eagerly snatching the cereal up.
Stores managers say Hokie Toasties are scoring big at the check out with shoppers.
Many fans say they don't plan to actually EAT the cereal. They're saving it as a memento instead.
