competed season.

Now the veteran coach who will
turn 65 this coming May is left to pick
up the pieces of a storied career just
days before Christmas.

JIM HICKAM

Roanoke County is limited to what
it can say on personel matters - and
Northside principal Frank Dent said it
would not be appropraite to comment at
this time.

But even Hickam knows that these
days in coaching - the future is always
now.

This will give that district six

Nothing backs up his number more
than the Virginia Tech basketball team
- under the old way of counting the
Tech men's team had a graduation rate
of 42 percent, now Tech's rate is 88
percent - more than doubling it.

And how about Radford University
