Buckeye cheerleader drinks, drives, hits veep


An Ohio State cheerleader is in custody after police say he hit three people with his car while drinking and driving early Sunday morning.

It happened at the Ohio Union on High Street around 2:30 a.m., according to a Columbus Dispatch report.

Police say the driver, 20-year-old George Karadimas, told them he was an OSU cheerleader who did not attend the game in Texas. He was driving erratically when he hit three people standing near an emergency command post.

The three people hit were an Ohio State vice president, her husband and a firefighter. The university vice president, who has not been identified, and her husband were taken to OSU Medical Center. They are both expected to be okay. The firefighter was treated at the scene.

Several fires were reported as students lit impromptu blazes in celebration of Ohio State's 24-7 win over Texas that ended a 21-game winning streak for the 2005 national champions.

Karadimas was arrested and charged with aggravated vehicular assault with other charges pending.

Houston's Kolb sets school mark in rout

Houston quarterback Kevin Kolb became the all-time leading passer in school history, throwing for 350 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-7 victory over Tulane on Saturday night, according to an account on the Conference USA website.

Kolb finished the game with 9,738 career passing yards, breaking David Klinger's mark of 9,430 yards set from 1988-91. Kolb also moved past 10,000 yards of total offense for his career.

Anthony Aldridge had five carries for 155 yards and two touchdowns for Houston (2-0, 2-0 Conference USA), including an 87-yard run in the fourth quarter that was the third-longest in school history.

The game was the 12th straight on the road for Tulane (0-1, 0-1), which has not played at home since being displaced last year by Hurricane Katrina.

Green Wave quarterback Lester Ricard threw for a 49-yard touchdown to Matt Forte in the second quarter for Tulane's only score. Ricard completed 14 of 25 passes for 156 yards.

Houston had 621 yards in total offense, the first time the Cougars have had more than 600 yards since totaling 647 in a win over Army in 2004.

Kolb, who had his 12th career 300-yard game and played just three quarters, completed 24 of 41 passes and threw one interception. His touchdown pass to Vincent Marshall was a school-record 20th time the duo has connected for a score.

Kolb completed 18 of 30 passes for two touchdowns in the first half. The Cougars also got rushing touchdowns from Roshawn Pope and Aldridge. Ben Bell kicked a 38-yard field goal to give Houston a 31-7 halftime lead.

Donnie Avery caught 7 passes for 96 yards for Houston and Marshall caught 6 for 119, his 13th career 100-yard game.

Krug sets ECU volleyball assists mark

The East Carolina volleyball team fell to Charlotte 3-1 (31-29, 24-30, 30-14, 30-24) in the second day of an invitational hosted by the 49ers, according to an ECU athletic media relations release.

Despite the loss, senior setter Heidi Krug became the all-time assist leader in East Carolina history with her 45 assists on the afternoon.

East Carolina swept Penn in the Pirates’ final match of the invitational. ECU (5-5)recorded its second shutout of the season, 30-22, 30-22, 30-21.

Kelley Wernert once again led the Pirates offensively, with 19 kills. Mignon Dubenion, who was named to the all-tournament team, added 13 kills.

Defensively, ECU was powered by Heidi Krug, who matched her career-high with 20 digs and 42 assists. She now has 3,551 career assists.
