issue, learn more, and to figure out
how to solve any diversity issues
going on at the school.

2005-06 Vipers Season Team owner Kristin Dixon has not :00 returned calls made to her cell phone
this week, but we are told she will be
in Roanoke on Monday to inform the
Civic Center that the team is folding.

The Vipers still have two years
left on a three year contract, but this
season was a disaster. The team had
the worst record in the 14 team United
Hockey League, and it was dead last in
attendance averaging 15 hundred fans a
night.

:00 Mike McGuire will leave William
Byrd and take over as the coach of the
Titans - last season's State Group Two
A runners-up.

McGuire will inherit a team that
is loaded with talent, and he already
should be very familiar with the
players' skills.

McGuire currently coaches the AAU
team that many of the Hidden Valley
girls play on in the off-season.

Team lost just one senior off of last

season's state runner-up team.

Plus, the team added a pretty
decent assistant coach to the mix in
the off-season only adding to
expectations for this year.

Grant Kittelson puts it all
together for us.

OQ=News 7 Sports << The last time most people in the
(END SOT) Roanoke Valley saw Brandy Bailey on the


Softball Field was when she was
dominating as a Pitcher for Northside.

That is until this season when
Bailey came on board as the Pitching
coach for Cave Spring

(BAILEY BITE:)

(MAST BITE:)

Bailey had no desire to be on the
softball field after her career was cut
short due to an injury while at
Mississippi state, but the chance to
coach brought her back to the game.

(BAILEY BITE:)

Now that "Hollywood" as she is
called by the Knights coaching staff is
on board don't expect for her to go
away anytime soon.

Bob McDonnell presented Sergeant
Kevin Tucker with a plaque this morning
for his bravery.


Last December, Tucker saved a
mother and her infant from their
burning apartment building.

He kicked in the door and felt
his way to 21 year-old April Elkashef
and her five month-old baby, Kacie.

Tucker also spear-headed an
effort to collect donations for the
two. (END VO) (END VO)
