DOING IT...
Susie Stevens What: The Race To The Top. Major: Graphic DesignA
You have to be a glutton for punishment to be a triathlete. For a mini-triathalon, there's a
grueling half mile swim in the ocean, a 20 mile bicycle race, then a three mile foot race. It's
one of the most intense, physically demanding experiences an athlete can endure. But, for
graphic artist Susie Stevens, vanquishing mini-triathalons wasn't enough. She needed something
more challenging to get her kicks. So, after two victories in mini-triathalons, Susie shifted her
sights to scaling mountains. She went to Colorado last summer to take on two of the Rockies. The x
final score, needless to say, was Susie 2- The Rockies 0. (One of them was Giant Torres and the
other was Greys, both with elevations above fourteen thousand feet.) "Mountain climbing and
training for triathalons taught me a lot about what I am capable of doing, when I put my mind to
it," Susie says. "Now I apply that kind of drive and focus to my school work. It takes the same
kind of stamina to stay up all night working on my art."
Jason Synakowski What: East Coast Beach Bum. Major: Sports Management/Communications
New York is famous for many things. But. . . volleyball? True, the beaches and weather may
not quite equal California's, but, like the song says, if you can make it there, you can make it
anywhere. Just ask New Yorker Jason Synakowski, who has been playing volleyball for eight
years. He played on his high school varsity squad and was captain for two years. Now he's proof that
it's not your home state that matters, it's your state of mind. On the U of M Men's Club Volleyball team,
Jason has earned a fearsome reputation as an outside hitter. Even though he was out of his element (play-
ing in a southern climate), he recently led the team in a tournament in Arizona. Says Jason of his volley-
ball history: "You'd be surprised how big volleyball is in New York. I'm really glad to have had a chance
to start as young as I did. Then, when I came to Michigan, I discovered a whole new level of play."

50 faster than ever: The Chicago Bulls reached fifty wins faster
than any team in US sports history, but to Scottie Pippen, what mat-
ters most is capturing another NBA title. Pippen, an All-American when
he played college ball, was only 6'1t" when he graduated from high
i school. Hard work and another six inches helped him become a ver-
satile threat at both ends of the court. As a pro, the hard work
continues-while most players relax in the off-season, Pippen works
out almost every day. Pipp's plans? After winning the cham-
pionship, he has two things on his mind: power boating on Lake
Michigan and preparing for Dream ieam Ill at the Suminer
Olympics.
You might think that your old athletic shoes have seen better
days. NIKE's Reuse-A-Shoe program insures that they will. Stop by
the DIAG at noon on April 8th to check out the program: Reuse-A-
Z Shoe recycles old athletic shoes and makes them into things
like running tracks and basketball courts. It's extra mileage for your
old shoes. Bring yours and get some NIKE stuff.
Also on the 8th, NIKE's environmental expert, Bill
Malloch, will be on the DIAG at noon to talk about NIKE's
environmental initiatives around the
world and at U of M.
Girls P.L.A.Y. Day '96 kicks off at
1pm on April 14th at Palmer Field.
Join Michigan's
finest female
athletes at this
unique event. It's all part of Participate
in the Lives of America's Youth:a program
designed to encourage school age girls to partici-
pate in sports. You can volunteer. Just get in touch with
your NIKE student rep.
Hear the rumble? Feel the earth move? It's the NIKE Hummer,
heading back to Michigan all this week. Keep an eye out for it. Come
over and take a look. You might even get some cool NIKE stuff.

Aussie standout Cathy Freeman is a rising star in
the international track and field cosmos: The 22 year old
Australian first caught the world's attention at the 1994
Commonwealth Games in Canada. Her win in the 200m
made her the first Aboriginal Australian to win a
Commonwealth title. She celebrated by unfurling the
indigenous Aboriginal flag-a daring demonstration of her
ethnic pride. But, when she went on to capture the
400m crown, she added an Australian flag.
Wipped in the two flags, Cathy made a bold state-
ment about national racial reconciliation. Watch for her this
sunmmer!
