landmark affair
Athletic tradition is as strong at Michigan as at any school
in the country. Take a tour of the Pretzel Bell or gaze into the
showcases that line the circumference of the concourse of Crisler
Arena and see the faces that make up the legends of Michigan
athletics. From Fielding Yost to Cazzie Russell the names boast
of a tradition long and strong in athletic excellence.
But at Michigan, as at most schools in the country, that
tradition has not included women's sports. The only female
athlete at Michigan to have gained any recognition is Mikki King,
a gold medalist in diving at the 1972 Olympics.
Up to just two years ago women's intercollegiate ath-
letics at Michigan were relegated to recreation and club
sports. Only in 1974 were women's intercollegiate athletics
'brought under the auspices of the Department of Athletics.
That move, in two short years has changed the complexion
of women's sports at Michigan. A change that, in all likelihood,'
will continue here as it has throughout the nation.
Michigan now offers intercollegiate competition for women
in basketball, field hockey, swimming and diving, synchronized
swimming, tennis, volleyball, and gymnastics. Next year there
is a good chance a women's track team will be organized. While
women's athletics at Michigan has yet to approach either the!
popular or financial support that has been generated by men's
sports over the years it has made extensive gains in both, al-
most overnight.
Today, tomorrow, and Saturday Michigan hosts the Big Ten
Women's Swimming and Diving Championships. While it may
not create any spectacular hoopla, the affair is probably the
biggest women's athletic event Michigan has ever hosted and'
represents a real landmark for the evolution of women's sports
at the University.
However, Michigan's women's swimming team is a prime
example of the transition of quality of women's athletics at
While Michigan offers no women's swimming scholar-
ships, the team is increasingly being made up of women
who have been recruited, lured by the fine swimming
facilities and serious coaching and competition Michigan has
to offer.
The aim of Coach Stu Isaac's program is directed towards
quality athletics and eventual national. recognition-like the
men's program.
"I think this is the way it should go," said the former Mich-
igan varsity swimmer. "This is the first year that we've really
hitting the recruiting."
Isaac's goal is to win the Big Ten Meet this weekend and
to have the squad be one of the top ten in the country.
The Wolverines have to be favored in this meet as .they
feature six first-class competitors:
Debbie Brevitz. A junior from Battle Creek, Brevitz
holds Michigan records in the 50 and 100-yard breaststroke
and in the 100 IM. She was a four-time winner in last year's
conference meet and was an All-American in three individual
events and three relays.
Chris Den Herder. A freshwoman from Holland, Den Herder
already holds Michigan's record in the 200-yard backstroke at
2:15.00 and may' be, according to Isaac, one of the top eight
performers in the country at that event.
Kathy Knox. Team captain, and Michigan's only senior
swimmer, the Erie, Pennsylvania, native is an All-American and
conference record holder and defending champion in both the
200 and 400-yard freestyle.
Katie McCully. A freshwoman from Kalamazoo, McCully
already has set five Michigan individual records-in the 50, 100,
200, and 500 freestyle and the
200 IMand was a participant
in the record-holding 400 free-
