respected her vast knowledge of the
game, so the transiton between coaches
-went very smoothly.
"SHE'S AN excellent coach," said
junior Jennifer' Hickman. "She knows

what she's talking about and gets
people motivated."
"If you have a problem with your
game, you can go to her and she can
give you more than one way to fix it.

She has a tremendous volleyball
knowledge," said sophomore Wendy
Canning's knowledge stems from her
experience playing from 1971-74 for the
UCLA varsity team which won the
national championship in her freshman
and senior years.
SHE WAS assistant coach for the
Santa Monica volleyball squad in 1975-
76 and then moved to Michigan where
she took over organizational respon-
sibilities for the Wolverine volleyball
team and assisted Vong.
"Sandy allowed me a lot of freedom,"
said Canning. "I was responsible for
running off-season practices and tour-
naments. I set up conditioning
programs and even helped coach
during matches."
Canning is already fundamentally.
changing the team's playing strategy.
"FOR THE FIRST time, we're using
a one-setter offense," she said. "In
early scrimmages, the team combined
noticeably better with the one setter.",
A setter is the player who passes the
ball high in the air so that it can be
spiked down over the net by a team-
She is also running more organized
plays than in the past. "Since we're
several inches shorter than our op-

ponents, we have to use more finesse
and trickery," Canning explained.
As well as moving up to the head
coaching position, she has been made a
full-time coach (Vong had been a part-
time coach). This will give her time to
recruit players from other states and
the time to find the players to fit into the
Michigan program.
"THEY (the ideal players) must
have intensity and the desire to win.
They aren't satisfied with making a bad
play or losing a point," she said. "Now
at least I'll have time to find thi."
It's also essential that the players be
able to succeed in getting an education
at Michigan. "They must have the men-
tal capacity for U of M academics,"
said Canning. "The first thing we do
(when recruiting) is make sure they're
Even though ithe program doesn't
have the financial resources of some of
the other major colleges, the lack of a'
big budget hasn't really hurt the team.
"Success is in winning...I'm just
dying to go out and beat all the teams
that have all the money - you don't,
need the big bucks to win a game,"
Canning said.
"Barb has done a lot," said Hickman.
"Her coaching has helped put
volleyball on the map.",

How many guys spend four hours a
day running track, up to five more in
the library, four more in the classroom
and still rank as one of the rowdiest
members of their fraternity?
Not many. But one name does come
to mind. Sophomore cross-country run-
ner Chris Brewster, is a proud brother
of the Phi Delta Theta house. A fun-
loving guy in the fraternity and around
campus, Brewster ig all business on the
A SOPHOMORE from London, On-
tario, Brewster burst into the cross-
country scene in 1982. He nailed a first-
place finish at the team's first meet of
that season, the Springbok road race,
held, ironically, in his home town of
London. Soon after though, he was
sidelined by an ankle injury and was
redshirted his freshman year.
The easy-going Brewster took the in-
jury in stride, but it has taught him a
lesson on the instability of an athletic
career. "Messingup my ankle proves it
can be all over before you know it," he
Brewster does have a serious side but
you wouldn't know it by listening to
housemate Jim Ruth. "He's an ex-
citable Canadian. He's a maniac. He
definitely has hyper tendencies," said
THE SERIOUS Brewster was disap-
pointed with the Wolverine's 17th place
finish last season in the NCAA cross-
country championships, and he asserts,

"we'll improve on last year's perfor
mance, I have no doubt." In addition to
looking for an overall team im-
provement Brewster is looking to better
his own performance.
"If you look out for your own needs
then the team will do well," Brewster
The last of six children, Brewster is
used to a big family atmosphere.
Perhaps this is why he savors -the Phi
Delt experience.
"BETWEEN THE social life and
friendships you make it has so mush
more to offer than the dorms or apar-
tments," he said. "For me it's the only
way to go."
Brewster may be making a lot of
friends in the fraternity but he hasn't
been at all friendly to his competitors.
At the Big Ten finals last year,
Brewster came through in the clutch.
With Michigan in need of a strong
performance, Brewster came up with'
one. He pulled away from an extremely
talented field to capture the three-mile
title. He considers that victory to be his
greatest thrill at Michigan thus far.


"IT WAS a big emotional lift," he
said. "It came at a really opportune
moment and it let me know I could
compete at this level." This extra dose
of confidence Brewster has swallowed
may make him an even greater threat
in cross-country.
Brewster hasn't just stayed ahead'of
the competition in running. He has also
been able to keep pace in the
classroom. A double major in coi=
munications and economics, Brewster
has maintained a 3.0 grade point, doing
a fine job juggling all of his time-
consuming activities into the space of a
