Fairleigh Dickinson University has been cleared of sex bias charges filed by the school's former acting athletic director, who was passed over for the permanent position in 1986. U.S. District Judge Harold A. Ackerman on Thursday upheld the appointment of former Tulane University basketball Coach Roy Danforth as the school's athletic director. Ackerman found there was no merit to the civil rights lawsuit filed by former acting Athletic Director Barbara Leshinsky.

The leading scorer on UC Irvine's soccer team is Smith. So is the third-leading scorer. So are two of the best defenders. "If your name is Smith, you're on my team," Coach Derek Lawther said. All told, there are four Smiths on the roster, all of them starters. Two--senior forward Kevin Smith and sophomore fullback Jason Smith--are brothers. The other two--Dave Smith, a senior fullback, and Scott Smith, a junior forward--aren't related to anyone else on the team.

Jaycee Leitner went to UC Irvine after being recruited to play soccer. But for her first two years, she didn't play. Steve Shaw, the coach who had encouraged her to choose Irvine even though he couldn't offer her a scholarship, left the school before Leitner got there. And with the program in temporary disarray, Leitner went her own way. Last spring, she turned up again, and Coach Ray Smith has reason to be thankful.
