Once she got away, Kelsie ran out
of Anderson Hall past an emergency call
box, within sight of two camopus polic
e officers- -according to the chief-
-to her car and drove home.


She didn't report the attack
until the next day.

AWAY. BUT LIKE I SAID, YOU DON'T KNOW
WHAT YOU'D DO UNLESS YOU'RE IN THAT
SITUATION.

The police chief's initial


statement outlined the details of her
leaving the campus thuresday evening
and the delayed report.


Though the chief stands by those
facts, he insists it was not intended
to imply he doubts her story.

The College posted warnings on
every woman's room door and mass mailed
10-thousand students.


Women we talked with on campus
seemed to think the response from
Virginia Western was approrpirate.



10:58:43


YOU CAN NEVER OVERPLAY SOMETHING LIKE
THIS, BECAUSE, GOD FORBID- THE NEXT
DAY, A FEW HOURS FROM NOW- -THE SAME
BAD GUY IS IN ANOTHER BATHROOM.


Because Kelsie couldn't provide
much detail to describe her attacker,
she AND police fear it's unlikely they
be able to make an arrest.

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed along with meteorologist
Brent Watts in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. High pressure this evening will
cross Pennsylvania. Light northerly
winds will become easterly overnight,
then southeasterly Thursday. This will
once again "lock in" clouds, drizzle,
fog and cooler temperatures. Lows
tonight with fairly clear skies early
will drop to the mid 30s. By Thursday


morning, with the onshore flow and
moisture in the area, expect clouds,
drizzle and light showers. There's even
a slight chance of light sleet Thursday
morning - just like some of us
experienced this past Sunday. Highs
will only hit the low and mid 40s
Thursday - much cooler! Expect steady
temperatures Thursday night around the
lower 40s as showers continue.
Friday's weather looks interesting. The
morning will likely start with clouds,
fog and showers, then we may catch a
break with a little sunshine.
Temperatures should warm to near 70
with a warm front lifting north of our
viewing area. Then, in the afternoon
and evening hours, more clouds and rain
will return as a cold front charges
through the region. South breezes could
get gusty Friday, around 20-30mph.
Showers are forecast to continue Friday
night and into mid morning Saturday.
After that time, drier air returns from
the north, ushering in seasonable
temperatures in the 60-65 degree range
for the weekend. After Saturday
morning's showers, we're looking at
mostly clear to partly cloudy skies for


the rest of the weekend For weather

Larranaga was a hot commodity


after the final four and he remains
that way tonight.


He turned down a chance to return
to his alma mater Providence today, and
as result he was rewarded with another
contract extension in Fairfax.


Larranaga is now under contract
through the 2015 season guaranteeing he
can retire at Mason if he wishes to do
so.


Now 58, the winningest coach in
school history has taken the Patriots
to the NCAA tourney four times since
1999.
