ly return to the University. Tickets jumped in price this year to
$17.50 per game, the first increase since 1996, totaling $105

HOCKEY AND BASKETBALL
Sign up for basketball tickets and hockey tickets
as soon as you get on campus. Information and
schedules for both teams will be sent along with
football tickets. Hockey tickets tallied close to
$200 last season for about 18 games. Basketball
tickets cost about $100 for about 15 games. With
the hiring of head coach Tommy Amaker, the Maze
Ragers are sure to be excited this year. But hurry,
the deadlines are mid to late September for both.

By Jon Schwartz
Daily Sports Writer
Last year, money was so tight for the men's rowing
club that it could not even afford its own boats for the
national championships.
But this past Friday, the athletic department
announced a major change in the makeup of two club
sports, a change that should keep such things from
happening again.
Effective immediately, Athletic Director Bill Martin
has implemented a new tier for sports competition, the
"club-varsity" level.
The new classification falls between the two original
tiers of club and varsity sports and is intended to ele-
vate several sports that officials said deserve extra
recognition.
Starting this year, the men's rowing and lacrosse
teams are the inaugural club-varsity teams, selected
based on the two teams' success on the national level.
Greg Hartsuff, coach of the men's rowing team, had
been among those lobbying for the change for several
years.
"One of our goals for the change of status has been
achieved with Bill Martin's blessing,"he said.
To the casual observer, there will be few noticeable
differences between this season's team and those of

past years. Despite the new title, the competition will
be the same and the competitions should play out the
same for the most part.
But to the athletes and coaches that pledge their time
and effort to their respective teams, the change is a
welcome one that is long overdue.
"I think it's great," Carl Enroth, a member of the
rowing team said. "It's something that our whole team
feels is incredibly important."
Despite the change, most of the responsibility for
raising money will still rest in the hands of the team
itself. But the hope is that the new title will help to
improve the teams' performance.
"It's mainly a psyche thing." Hartsuff said. "There is
a stigma attached to being a club in that it's less serious.
Just the simple change in status is going to be huge.
"This is a big, big philosophical change."
All those involved said they expect the new classifi-
cation to impact the team's credibility and increase the
ability to perform on the national level.
Because club sports are, to a great extent, walk-on
programs, it is up to the team members to bring in peo-
ple to tryout.
But with the new elevated status, coaches and play-
ers are expecting more publicity which will then lead
to more recruiting.
"We've always sort of hit the roadblock with the

media," Hartsuff said. "This is going to impact our
recruiting.'
And all of this change, for the time being is costing
the athletic department nothing.
"There will be no additional financial contribttioti,"
Martin said.
Instead, the new status will be seen as a progressive
movement that should at some point lead to a more
competitive environment that should translatei
more successful program.
Last year, the rowing team was able to raise
$125,000, with very little of it coming from the athletic
department. But over the course of the season, the team
spent in the neighborhood of $150,000.
It got so bad that the team found itself borrowing
boats from Trinity College to use in the national cham-
pionships.
So while the teams will not be suddenly handed
money by the athletic department the expectation is
that as the team improves, money will come in.
Basically, the thinking is that with the new status
will come media attention, leading to easier recruiting.
With better players will come more success and'suc-
cess has been known to bring in quite a fan base.
And with a supportive fan base, fundraisers should
be able to bring in much more money, thereby accom-
plishing the original goals.
