dead by US forces in Baghdad in

Calipari's car came under fire from the
U.S. military at a checkpoint on

the way to the airport...as the agent
escorted an Italian hostage he had

just helped free.



Italy's court charges the shooter ,
US soldier Mario Lozano, with

homicide for not following any of the

warning procedures that would have

alerted the Italians they were nearing
a checkpoint.'

Calipari died shielding the hostage,

who was injured in the attack.

OQ=Hometown Hoops Weekly." < (END SOT) games all of last season. But first


year head coach Kristen Williams has
turned things around in a hurry. The
Pioneers have 15 victories against just
6 losses this year, including an 8 and
2 mark in the Mountain Empire District,
and will play Narrows Friday night in a
playoff to decide the regular season
district title.

KRISTEN WILLIAMS/FIRST YEAR FORT
CHISWELL HEAD COACH:

KRISTIN WEBSTER/PIONEERS FORWARD:

BRITTNEY MONTGOMERY/PIONEERS GUARD:

Williams played at the Chis in the late
90's, scoring 850 points. She is also
the first female to be the head varsity
girls coach in the 30 year history of
the school. And she's made hoops
important again at her alma mater.

WHITNEY WORRELL/PIONEERS FORWARD:

KRISTEN:

Just 10 miles to the south of Fort
Chiswell, Al Copenhaver's George Wythe

Maroons are 19 and oh, and with a win
over Chilhowie later this week, would
clinch another Hogoheegee District
regular season crown, and a trip to the
Region C tourney.

AL COPENHAVER/GEORGE WYTHE HEAD COACH:

Copenhaver has just 2 seniors on the
squad, but this year's edition of the
Runnin' Roons has some unfinished
business in the post season.

AL:

The Maroons are bidding to make the
Group A state tourney for the 4th time
in the last 6 years. Travis Wells,
