After suffering through a dismal
8-15 season last year, the Michigan
women's basketball team received a
much-needed boost yesterday with
the naming of Gloria Soluk as new
Soluk comes to Michigan after a
highly successful 12-year coaching
career in the Detroit area. Her last
three seasons were spent as head
coach at Wayne State University,
where she compiled a 45-20 won-loss
Soluk replaces Carmel Borders,
who resigned after a three-year
coaching record of 23-28 to devote
more time to her family.
"It's been one of my dreams for
years," Soluk said about returning to
Michigan, where she gained a mas-
ter's degree in counselling and
guidance. "I love U-M both for its
academics and its athletics."
Soluk views her function at Michi-
gan as more than just a coaching job.
"My whole career has been based on
upgrading women's athletics," she
said. "I feel Michigan has the

women's athletics within the next
few years, and I want to be a part of
Soluk's tenure at WSU included a
17-7 record last year and a near-miss
of a conference title. Three of those
victories came at the expense of the
squad she now inherits. In spite of
this, Soluk was not willing to assess
the strengths and weaknesses of the
Wolverine team on the basis of those

"I don't think it would be fair to
make judgements of the girls on the
basis of seeing them from an oppos-
sing coach's point of view," she
explained. "You can't tell much if
you don't work with the kids every
Soluk said that her goal as coach is
to develop each player to her fullest
potential. "Their development will
be a combination of their effort and
my help. Winning will take care of
Winning seems to come natural to
Soluk's squads. In nine years at
Hamtramck St. Ladislaus H i g h
School, Soluk compiled an incredible
114-13 record, which included five
Class A championships, two Catholic
League titles, and back-to-back state
high school championships in 1973,

had accomplished all I could do-at
that level, and I wanted to move up,"
Soluk related. "When I had the
chance to go to WSU, I took it. Since
then, I always hoped that an oppor-
tunity like Michigan would open up."
In addition - to her basketball
duties, Soluk will coach Michigan's
women's softball team, which begins
its first season next spring. She also
has been assigned to instruct sports
clinics and promote campus interest
in Michigan's Recreation, Intra-
mural and Club Sports Department.
Soluk says she is "very excited"
about sponsoring a women's basket-
ball clinic at Crisler Arena for high
school girls next July.
As for the upcoming season, Soluk
claims that student support is vital to
the success of the team. "I challenge
the students to come and see us play.
I guarantee they will find us exciting
and will love our brand of basketball
if they just come out and see one
game. If you don't look, you're never
going to know."
New York scored two unearned runs in
the first inning and Mike Torrez won his
17th game by scattering seven hits as
the Yankees beat Cleveland last night 4-
The win dropped the Yankees magic
number for clinching their second
straight AL East crown to four. Anyk
combination of four New York wins and
Boston' losses will put the Yanks back
into the playoffs against Kansas City,
who they bested 3-2 in the best-of-five
series last year.
Meanwhile, Boston dropped half a
game when its scheduled- game in
Toronto was rained out. The Red Sox,
now 31/2 games behind, will make up the
game as part of a doubleheader tonight
against the Jays.
BALTIMORE WAS IDLE and fell to
four games back with only six to play.
While the Orioles and Red Sox must still
fave each other in a three-game series,
the Yankees finish with three games
each against non-contenders Cleveland
