Woman's quest to be Yell Leader ends

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Samantha Ketcham's quest to become Texas A&M's first female yell leader ended abruptly Wednesday when the university's election commission said no runoff would be needed.

Ketcham was hoping to be elected to the five-member group, which A&M has instead of cheerleaders. It has always been comprised of men at the formerly all-male military institution. The commission released results Tuesday night that showed Nelson Ingram had been elected senior yell leader, with Ketcham and three other students facing a runoff for the two remaining positions.

Instead, the commission said "the percentages were tabulated incorrectly" and that Drew Nelson and Hunter Skoog had won the other two spots.
