June 4, -- The night of March 3, , is forever seared in the memory of three former college soccer players -- April Grolle, Lauren Chief Elk and Lauren Bryeans. It was supposed to be a fun girls night out for the three friends, classmates at De Anza Community College in Cupertino, Calif. They were invited to a party in nearby San Jose by members of their school's baseball team. But by night's end, it would become anything but typical. The three athletes said they witnessed -- and stopped -- the gang rape of a year-old girl. Exactly what happened would become a subject of intense controversy. Amid wildly conflicting accounts and citing lack of evidence, the district attorney declined to file criminal charges in the case. The players have insisted any sexual contact was consensual. We became close really fast," said Chief Elk, nicknamed Chief, who was 19 at the time of the alleged attack.
