The president of Cal State Chico has threatened to shut down any fraternity or sorority that doesn't abide by strict new rules, including a ban on alcohol at recruiting events. Paul Zingg told a crowd of about 1,000, most of them members of the university's 37 fraternities and sororities, that the "Animal House" ways would no longer be tolerated. "To the extent that you are now," he said, "you will no longer be drinking clubs masquerading as fraternities and sororities."

I found the March 29 story, "Hazing Death Highlights Chico's Greek Life," which highlighted the death of a Chico State student and the "darker" side of the university, to be unfair to the university and the town of Chico. I grew up in Chico and am proud of my roots. After high school, I headed to UCLA and found the students to be similar to the students at Chico State -- there were students who wanted to party, students who wanted to learn and some students who wanted to do a little of both.

Baseball Coach Lindsay Meggs of Chico State keeps reaping benefits from his Southland connections. Meggs, a former assistant at Cal Lutheran and coach at Oxnard College, recruits heavily in the Valley and Ventura County region. The Wildcats this season feature five players from the area, with Kurt Probasco and David Arroyo making the biggest impact. Probasco, a junior catcher-third baseman, leads Chico with a .368 batting average and Arroyo, a senior right-hander, is 3-0 with a 1.

At only 5 feet 8, Marissa Bradley still stands tall among the best women's basketball players to ever take the court for Chico State. The former Brea Olinda standout played her final game for Chico State on March 3 against Cal State Stanislaus, and she finished as the school's all-time leading scorer. She also set four other school career records for the Wildcats, who play in NCAA Division II. "That last game was a great way to go out," Bradley said.

Chico State, in the end, served its purpose. UC Irvine, which didn't have a victory until well after the holidays last season, had reason to celebrate early this season after a 74-66 victory Friday in front of 1,110 in the Bren Center. OK, this was not 16th-ranked Utah, which Irvine plays next Saturday. Division II Chico State might have two Division I transfers, but Anthony Lambert (Cleveland State) and Andre Speech (San Diego) didn't exactly get to pick from a wide range of offers.
