Cornell wrestling names Garland coach

With conference and All-American honors already under his belt, Steve Garland isn't going to stop. Cornell wrestling coach Rob Koll announced last week that the graduated Virginia wrestler will be an assistant coach for the Big Red in the 2000-2001 season.

Garland's performance in the 125-pound weight class during the 1999-2000 season led him to be named the 2000 ACC Wrestler of the Year. The tri-captain finished the year ranked eighth in the nation with a record of 30-5, 10-1 in dual match action. He also became the first Cavalier selected to compete in the prestigious National Wrestling Coaching Association All-Star Classic.

Garland topped off his outstanding season with a second place finish at the 2000 NCAA Championships. He fell to Penn State's Jeremy Hunter, 7-3, in the finals. His high standing made him only the fourth Cavalier in the last decade to earn All-American honors.

Garland was a three-time NCAA qualifier and a three-year starter at Virginia.

Maryland recruit sustains injury

Top Maryland recruit Chris Kelley was injured last weekend in the first quarter of the Super 44 All-Star game. The Washington Post All-Met offensive player of the year will require surgery to correct a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, which will most likely sideline the quarterback until next spring.

    Having already decided to redshirt his freshman season with the Terrapins, Kelley will undergo surgery after he is thoroughly examined by Maryland's medical staff.

    Boozer family moves closer

    The closer you are, the longer they stay. At least that's what the Boozer family believes.

    Carlos Boozer, Duke men's basketball's freshman standout last year, will soon be closer to his family. The Boozers have decided to move from their home in Juneau, Alaska to North Carolina to help the forward overcome pressure to turn pro early.

    Boozer led Duke in rebounding during the 1999-2000 season, averaging 6.3 per game, and was named to the ACC's all-freshman team.

    Regardless of the mounting pressure their son is facing to join the NBA ranks, the Boozers will encourage him to complete his degree in business management at Duke.
