Players pay tribute to shooting victims

Players and officials at the Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic were asked Friday to wear green-and-white ribbons to honor the victims of the Littleton, Colo., school massacre.

One teacher and 12 students were slain at Columbine High School on Tuesday by two students who then killed themselves.

Tournament officials said the white symbolizes sympathy, and the green stands for the hope of new life. The ribbons were suggested by Leigh Anne Good, first vice president of the Greensboro Jaycees.

Tournament general chairman Bobby Davis said the massacre "reminds us how fragile we all are, and we wanted in this small way to express our love and support for those most closely touched by this tragedy.''
