By BILLY NEFF
Enthusiasm is the best way to de-
scribe Gloria Soluk's approach to
coaching women's basketball here at
Michigan. This enthusiasm has cer-
tainly rubbed off on her players as
they whooped it up at practice
"We're going to try and make
basketball exciting here," comment-
ed the affable Soluk. She continued,
"I invite everybody to come and see
us; I feel that if they come and see us
once, they will come again."
SOLUK SEES this year's team as
being "very aggressive. We're going
to run and press. We'd like our fast
break to be compared with the
The future women's softball coach
here at Michigan laments, however,
the absence of "a big center. We
don't have someone who can domin-
ate the backboards at both ends." So-
luk would like to combat these defi-
ciencies with "improved defense and
conditioning. Conditioning is what
wins basketball games so we're con-
centrating on that," the ladies'
BUT WHY would a woman want to

State) to. come to one with an 8-15

did my master's degree work here; I
think it ,(Michigan) will be the No. 1,

I want to be a part of it," exclaimed
She was quick to add that "it is
easy to recruit kids to a great place
igers a re er
like this and I like working with intel-
ligent kids - this is certainly the
place for that."
If the women cagers wanted a
winning tradition brought to them,
they surely found the right person.
Soluk compiled a 45-20 record during
her three years as coach of the
Wayne State Tartars.
PREVIOUS TO that, she met with
even more success'while coaching at
Hamtramck St. Ladislaus 'High
School, where her contingents gar-
nered an incredible five Class A
championships and back-to-back
state championships in 1973 and 1974.
During that time, she had a com-
bined 114-13 won-loss record.
As one girl was heard saying,
"She's got us back down to funda-
mentals; she really knows her stuff,
not like last year."
Someone listening interjected, "A
lot of girls didn't try out last year
because of the coach (Carmel Bor-
ders)." Soluk stated, "We don't like
to talk about what went on last year."
SOLUK DIDN'T; as she had
enough to talk about with this year's
cage quintet. She was bubbling over
with praise of two fine freshpersons,
Abby Currier, from a state cham-
pionship Lake City five, and Brenda
Ven Hoosen from Marine City.
"The kids who played last year are
really going to be outstanding,''
Soluk boasted. She then proceeded to
name off her two scholarship play-
ers, Linda Gardner and Terri Conlin,
and a cast of thousands. Included
among these were center Natasha
Cender, forward Karen Gilhooly,
Jean Otto, Denice Camaron, Sara
Smolensky and Sheila Young.
Soluk foresees the main competi-
tion locally for the Wolverines will be

lot of my heart is invested in those

campaign are numerous. "We would

Yesterday, Soluk was up for elec-
tion for sportswoman of the year in
the Detroit area. The award honors
the person who has done outstanding
work for the community. She suf-
fered one of her rare defeats. By the
way,' the incredible motor mouth
from the University of Detroit, Dick
Vitale won the men's award.
.For the enthusiastic woman from
Wayne State, success should again be
waiting in the wings.
