Kent State drops hockey program
after presidential recommendation
FROM STAFF REPORTS
Central Collegiate Hockey Asso-
ciation (CCHA) Commissioner Bill
Beagan confirmed yesterday that the
Kent State University Board of Trust-
ees has supported KSU President
Carol Cartwright's recommendation
of April 5, to drop Kent's hockey
program effective immediately.
"It is common knowledge that
KSU's athletic department has been
in a state of turmoil since athletic
director Paul Amodio was reassigned
to a teaching position at KSU in Janu-
ary," commented Beagan.
Last January, Kent's football team
petitioned Cartwrightto fire head foot-
ball coach Pete Cordelli. Cordelli was
fired several weeks later.
On February 7, Kent's hockey
team, following the lead of the foot-
ball team, petitioned Cartwright to
fire coach Bill Switaj. Kent's hockey
team, in its second CCHA season,
began the 1993-94 season with a re-
spectable 10-8-1 record, butcompiled
a 1-18-1 record the remainder of the
"It would be accurate to say that I
was upset upon hearing about ...
Cartwright's recommendation to ter-
minate the hockey program from the
media," Beagan said. Kent did not
give the CCHA the requisite 12
months' notification of voluntary ter-
mination of membership. Beagan's
calls to Cartwright, after her an-
nouncement to recommend the termi-
nation of the hockey program, were
Prior to Kent's application for
membership in the CCHA in 1990,
the university, through its then-presi-
dent Michael Schwartz, gave a com-
mitment to the league to make several
improvements to Kent's existing
hockey facility: a new entrance, re-
modeled lobby and coaches' office,
improved locker rooms and expan-
sion of the existing seating capacity.
None of these improvements were
ever implemented. Beagan stated that
Kent would not have been granted
CCHA membership "without a com-
mitment" to implement these im-
Beagan added, "It is never a good
day when you lose a hockey program.
In the circumstances given the cur-
rent leadership vacuum in the (Kent)
athletic department, along with their
failure to implement promised im-
provements to their hockey facility,
it's arguably in the best interest of the
CCHA that (Kent) has taken this c-
The CCHA is in the processof
modifying its 1994-95 league sched-
ule, to be announced shortly.

New Boston Marathon record set
BOSTON (AP) - No one ever
called the Boston Marathon course
fast. Until yesterday.
Cosmas Ndeti of Kenya smashed
the record in defending his men's title
and Uta Pippig of Germany broke the
Bob Kempainen, a 27-year-old
medical student at Minnesota, broke
the American record in finishing sev-
enth on a day that saw temperatures
reach the mid-50s and runners taking
advantage of a 19 mph tailwind.
"I was not aiming to get a fast first
or second half. I was only concentrat-
ing on the pace other people were
running," the 24-year Ndeti said.
He covered the 26 miles, 385 yards
in 2 hours, 7 minutes, 15 seconds -
36 seconds better than Rob de
Castella's Boston record set in 1986.
Ndeti's time was the fifth-fastest ever
and the fastest in the world in six
It was only 25 seconds off the
world best of 2:06:50, set by Belayneh
Densimo of Ethiopia at Rotterdam in
The 26-year-old Pippig won in
2:21:45. She broke the women's
record of 2:22:43, set by Joan Benoit
Samuelson in 1983, and moved into
third place on the all-time list, 39
seconds behind the world-best of
2:21:06 set by Norway's Ingrid
Kristiansen at London in 1985.
Second on the all-time women's
list is Samuelson, with the American
record of 2:21:21 at Chicago in 1985.
In winning for the second con-
secutive year, Ndeti became the fourthr
straight Kenyan champion. His coun-
tryman,Ibrahim Hussein, won in 1991
Kempainen, the runner-up at New
York lastNovember, ran 2:08:47. The
previous mark of 2:07:52, by Alberto
Salazar at Boston in 1982.
Ndeti held off late-charging
Andres Espinosa of Mexico, the 1993
New York City Marathon champion.
Ndeti ran almost an identical race
to a year ago, biding his time over the
first half of the course before surging
to the front. Ndeti seized the lead for
good just before 22 miles, overtaking
little-known Boay Akonay of Tanza-
Last year, after winning, Ndeti
gave his 2-day-old son the middle
name of "Boston."
"Last year was a miracle to me,"
he said yesterday.
At the halfway point, Ndeti was
ninth, as Keith Brantly of Fort Lau-
derdale, Fla., led in 1:04:52. There-
fore, Ndeti ran the second half close
Kempainen was timed in 2:08:47,
five seconds fasterthan Salazar's pre-
vious mark of 2:08:52 at Boston in
