Silent contributor's efforts rewarded

By LISA GILBERT
A ceremony honoring three peo-
ple took place at last weekend's final
women's basketball game, but only
two of the three honored were bas-
ketball players.
Easily recognizable were team
captain and MVP Vonnie Thompson
and Sarah Basford, but another senior
- one unknown to even the most
devoted women's basketball fans -
stood with them.
Inger Lundin's contribution went
unnoticed to all except the players
and coaches, but now it was her time
to shine. Lundin was this year's
student assistant trainer.
FEW PEOPLE appreciate the
dedication required of an athletic
trainer. A trainer's job starts long
before game-time, demanding hours
of careful planning and preparation.
Lundin reported to Crisler Arena ev-
ery day over an hour before practice
to set up all the equipment and get
the players taped up and ready to go.
In games and in practice she had
to be on the edge of her seat every
second, watching closely to see ex-
actly how each injury occurred. "It's

important to observe an injury as it
happens in order to make a proper
evaluation," explained Lundin.
Despite her rigorous daily rou-
tine, Lundin loved working with the
team. "They are a great crew. The
coaching staff always included me
and made me feel like part of the
team."
Having spent so much of her
time with the team this season, it
was inevitable that she would be-
come good friends with several of
the players. During the break each
day between classes and practice she
listens to their problems as they get
their heads geared toward basketball.
"That's a touchy issue for me,"
she admitted. "It's important to keep
a certain distance because I still have
to be an authoritarian figure before I
can be a friend."
LUNDIN is especially sympa-
thetic to their frustrations, since it
wasn't long ago that she was in their
shoes. An all-around athlete in high
school, she received a soccer
scholarship from the University of
Central Florida.
"The hardest part of my job this

year was realizing that I wasn't the
athlete anymore," she confessed.
After two years in the sunshine
state, Lundin decided it was time to
make something out of her life that
would be permanent.
"Initially I wanted to go directly
into physical therapy," she said.
"But when I looked into the Michi-
gan program I realized all of the ad-
vantages. There's no set curriculum,
which enables me to have a wide
variety of opportunities."
LAST YEAR Lundin gained
valuable experience with the
women's tennis and swimming
teams. This past summer she worked
at the University's summer camps,
coaching soccer and helping out with
the football team.
During the summer, Lundin also
met her boyfriend, Brad Andrews, the

strength and conditioning graduate
assistant coach for the Michigan
football team.
Andrews isn't the only athlete in
her life. Her father played football at
the University of Minnesota, one
season winning co-MVP with
former Vikings coach Bud Grant.
Last Saturday while Lundin was
being honored her parents were also
called down to the court. It made her
especially proud to have her father
by her side to share in her moment
of glory.

Rivals battle for basement

BY STEVEN GINNS
The quest for that elusive first
victory continues tonight at East
Lansing as the Michigan men's
gymnastic team (0-5 Big Ten) will
square off against rival Michigan
State (0-6).
The Spartans occupy the base-
ment in the Big Ten standings.
"I think we are going to sur-
prise them," said head coach Bob
Darden. "We will win it."
Coached by George Fzypula,

the dean of Big Ten coaches, the
Spartans have averaged a team
score of 270. They are led by Keith
Pettit, who averages a 56 (out of
60) in the all-around.
So how will the Wolverines
overcome the Spartans? Darden
provides the answer. "We have to
put together a good effort to
generate the team score which we
are in command of and that's a
270," said Darden. "I believe it, so
they had better start believing it."

You Have the Answers.

The real-world problems of government, industry
and commerce demand solutions. Quick, effective
solutions. TASC solutions.
For over two decades, TASC has applied innovative,
computer-based analytic methodologies to the
understanding and optimization of complex systems.
We're committed to putting knowledge to work in
unconventional ways. The possibilities are endless.
And they depend on people like you. People with the
independent thought and analytic abilities that have
fostered at TASC a unique combination of advanced
technology and problem-solving techniques.
Here, we offer a small-team environment, project
follow-through, interdisciplinary contacts and in-
house educational opportunities. Our project diversi-
ty calls for flexibility, objectivity, and the ability to
expand your knowledge in a variety of ways to
discover real answers to complex systems problems.

Academically, 75% of our staff is at the MS and PhD
level. And we provide them with superior technical
and administrative support and the latest computer
hardware/software. We use state-of-the-art methods
from estimation, control and optimization theory to
advanced modeling and simulation techniques -
many of which were developed at TASC. It's a
dynamic, challenging environment where the in-
dividual makes a difference. And we're located only
minutes from the educational and cultural centers of
Boston and Washington DC, with other locations
throughout the country.
If you're receiving an MS or PhD in Electrical
Engineering, Systems Engineering or Com-
puter Science (with emphasis on engineering
and scientific application), the world could use
the answers you can provide through TASC.
