This will be the last Michifish
show for Miss Patricia Daugert,
the club sponsor. She leaves the
Physical Education department
after working with the Michifish
show for six years.
After the water show is over,
the club will be participating in
two competitive' meets. The In-
ternational Academy of Acquatic
Arts, in Decalb, Illinois, will be the
rite for state-wide competition
from the midwest.
This year the entire Michifish
club will compete in hopes of
receiving an award for excellence
for the finals of the water show.
In previous competion, the club
has outshined other clubs with its
large team numbers.
The second competition is the
Intercollegiate Competition held
at Western Michigan University.
Last year the duet and team num-
bers defeated over twenty other
colleges from the midwest area.
The numbers that are presented
in competition are taken from the
water show and are chosen by
Miss Daugert on the basis of dif-
ficulty of the number, synchron-
ization, execution and style.
Tickets may be purchased at the
door tonight and tomorrow, or
at te pool during the day.
