He chose to scout for the Cleveland Indians. “24 was pretty young to have to decide to hang up my spikes and move in to scouting,” he said. The decision led to minor league coaching. He was also the Texas Rangers player development director and eventually coached a team in Japan. Leading the Hokkaido Nippon

The alleged missile strikes appeared to be part of a surge in U.S. cross border assaults from Afghanistan on alleged militant targets in Pakistan, which have strained ties between the two anti-terror allies. one missile strike occurred at a house in Tappi village in North Waziristan tribal region. Some of those killed were believed to be foreigners, said two local Pakistani intelligence officials, citing reports from informants

and agents. A local tribesman, Shoaib dawar, said Taliban militants surrounded the house. He said drones were heard in the area before the strike. A second alleged strike was reported at a house in the village of dande darpa Khel. The site was near a seminary of veteran Taliban commander Jalaluddin Haqqani, considered an archenemy of the U.S. No casualties were immediately reported. The intelligence officials requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. The army could not immediately be reached for comment. Al-Qaida and Taliban militants have used Pakistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tribal areas as bases from which to attack U.S. and NATo forces in Afghanistan, spurring U.S. frustration with Pakistan. The tribal regions also are considered potential hiding places for al-Qaida leader osama bin laden and his deputy Ayman al-Zawahri.

The $35 billion plan would replace the current radar system with the kind of GPS technology that has become commonplace in cars and cell phones. Supporters say it would triple air traffic capacity, reduce delays by at least half, improve safety and curb greenhouse gas emissions.

Mavs envision victory to gain momentum toward a playoff push BY STEPHEN PETERS The Shorthorn staff

After a week off since its last game, the volleyball team looks to break into the win column in conference play as it plays host to Southland preseason No. 1 Texas State on Saturday at Texas Hall. The Mavericks (4-14, 0-4) look to avoid their first five-game conferencelosing streak since 2005, when the team dropped seven straight on its way to a 4-14 Southland record. That year, the team also opened SLC play 0-6 — the only such occurrence in team history. Texas State (10-12, 3-1) comes to Arlington after losing Tuesday to Houston, for the second time this year, in five sets 3-2. The Bobcats started their season 4-8 after a demanding pre-conference schedule but have won three of their last five matches. Sophomore setter Raegan Daniel, averaging 8.6 assist per match, said the team’s practices this week focused on securing the first victory since the conference schedule began. “We’re just hungry for a win,” Daniel said. “I think we just need to get that mind-set out that we’re not going to lose.” The Mavericks rank last in conference with a .116 attack percentage while allowing opponents .234 percent per match, ninth in the conference. Standout freshman Amanda Aguilera leads the team in conference with 3.33 kills and is second with 3.6 digs per set. Aguilera has posted three straight double-doubles, which pushed her into the Top-10 in the SLC in kills per set. Head coach Diane Seymour said to the team at the end of Thursday’s practice that she has seen big improvements in Aguilera’s hustle in terms of going after tipped balls, something that she was hesitant to do early on in the season. Aguilera said she believes that this team is capable of coming up with a victory on Saturday, and she can help the team in doing so. “Once we get a win, we’ll run with it because it’s a bad taste in your mouth to lose,” Aguilera said. “I’m just going to play my hardest. If there’s a hole, I’ll

hit it. I can’t really change what they do on their side, but I can change what I do on ours.” Saturday’s match is the 58th meeting between the two schools. UTA leads the overall series 39-19 but have lost 13 of the last 20 matches since Nov. 21, 1998. The Mavericks did defeat Texas State both times last year in four-set victories. The Mavericks are 15-9 at home against the Bobcats all-time at Texas Hall. The match is also Dig for the Cure night. Fans can make either flat donations or pledge money per dig collected during the match. All proceeds go to the Susan G. Koman Foundation and all fans are encouraged to wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness.

INJURY UPDATE Sophomore outside hitter Bianca Sauls remains sidelined with a right leg injury sustained in the loss to Texas Christian on Sept. 10. Seymour said that Sauls and the trainers say that Sauls is making improvements in her rehabilitation. She is still limited in the what she can do, but is beginning to lightly jog and do “jump sets.” When asked about the possibility of medically red-shirting Sauls, Seymour said that it could happen, but it is just a wait and see process. “That something we’ll discuss with her when the time is necessary,” she said. “But the focus for her right now is to get healthy and be back.” The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley

Contracts could bring more home games Teams under the agreements would have to play at Texas Hall if the Mavs played an away game. BY BEN HAUSS Contributor to The Shorthorn

The women’s basketball team hopes to bring more home games to its fans in the near future. Head coach Samantha Morrow will require teams to sign a home-andhome contract to come play the Mavericks if the team travels to play them during the season. If a team doesn’t follow through with the contract, it will be fined. In previous seasons, Texas Hall was not always available to the team because of other school functions.
