PEGGY
Continued from page 1
Doppes turned a losing team into
winners.
"She is a dynamic lady who has
experience in coaching and
administrating at the Division I
level. She is a great communicator
and has been a winner wherever
she has gone. Peggy is fighter,"
Richardson said. "She has shown
others what it takes to win and
she knows what it takes to
excel."
Bradley-Doppes is fully aware
of the challenging job she has
accepted, but is enthusiastic about
the impact she can make at
Michigan.
"I love a challenge; that's the
reason I am at Michigan," she .
said. "I like the idea of working
hard, putting everything into it,
and surrounding myself with
good people. With the changes
occuring within the University of
Michigan Athletic Department,
I'm very excited to be involved in
giving the department a sense of
direction and commitment.
"This is a challenging and
exciting opportunity to move
Michigan women's athletic
programs to the same level of rich
tradition associated with
Michigan athletics in general."
As associate athletic director,
she will be responsible for the
day-to-day and long-range
operating and planning of the 10-
sport Wolverine women's
program. In addition, Bradley-
Doppes will serve as Michigan
women's athletic liaison to the
NCAA, and the Big Ten and
Midwest Collegiate Field
Hockey Conferences.
Bradley-Doppes did not hide
her anxiety about her new job.
"After knowing that they

searched the nation there is a sense
of responsibility and right now
that is a little overwhelming
because I want to make sure that I
do this job right," she said.
She is aware of the job's added
difficulty until Dec. 1, when. she
leaves her coaching position.
"I have a sense of
responsibility to our incoming
players and I have a responsibility
to our volleyball program. Now
that we have secured a good
recruiting class and we are having
a very successful spring season,
we are getting the program in the
right direction."
Bradley-Doppes is aware that
once this happens, the coaches and
the administration need to have a
full time women's athletic
director.
"Jack needs to have someone
that he can rely on and that's
going to be me," she said:. "The
accountability factor is important
right now, where we are and
where are we going.
"In a realistic perspective we
know that we can be in the top
three in the Big Ten with our
women s sports. We have come so
far in such a short time and we
need to make sure that our
resources continue so we can
produce what Michigan
deserves."
Bradley-Doppes calls herself a
coach's administrator.
"The only thing that will be
. changing right now is that instead
of coaching my team, I'll be
administrating a new team and
that will be my coaches," she said.
"Just as a coach provides an
environment that is positive,
rewarding, and resourceful so that
the players can play up to their
potential; that is what I need to
do for my coaches. It's very much
a team concept that's been
working for years with the guys

and now we want it to work for
the girls as well."
In an attempt to evaluate the
department's situation, Bradley-
Doppes has asked Weidenbach for
the current operational budget
and information from the Big Ten
for each of Michigan's women's
programs.
"Ipwant to know where are we
right now in relationship to the
other schools in the Big Ten," she
said. "What are they paying their
coaches, what is their equipment
budget and their recruiting
budget? I want to know where we
fall in line."
Shortly after starting her new
job today, Bradley-Doppes will
hold individual conferences with
each women'sscoach to see where
their programs are and what they
need.
"On paper I can see a specific
sport and where it falls; but I
need to see what the coach feels is
an area that they are very weak in
s? that all of our programs can be
as successful as our women's
swimming."
Although
aware that
attendance aty
women's
sporting events is
not very strong,
Bradley-DoppesI
feels that strides
in attendance Bradley-
have been made
this year. Doppes
"It comes'down to people -
wanting to support winning
teams," she said. "I want people
to know that kids come here
because it is a great school and
because there are great athletic
opportunities here. Once we start
being successful... success breeds
success, people want to be a part
of it.

"Now that Jack has given us
the financial resources and now
that they've done this regional
search, the word is out that
Michigan is making a stand for
the women's program."
For the first time in the
athletic department's history,
there will be an administrative
assistant for Bradley-Doppes. In
addition, the previously separate
computer systems will now be on
line.
Other possible renovations
that would benefit both the
women's and men's programs.
Associate Athletic Director for
Internal Affairs Bob DeCarolis is
working on possible renovations
of Fisher Stadium - for not only
baseball but field hockey as well.
Possible plans for major
renovation of the softball field
also exist.
Bradley-Doppes claims to be .
headstrong, and insists on specific
recruiting practices she hopes
will increase.
"I think philosophically we
need to secure the top student-
athletes from this state first,"
she said. "I want to make sure
that our coaches look in their own
backyard first and then go across
the country."
Bradley-Doppes has seen a
slow opening of the door in the
last two years; she says that the
"good-ole boys" are just
beginning to come and letthe
women in. What she wants to do
is knock that door down.
"Our academics are world
reknown and the tradition that we
have is very strong, but the
tradition has been football and
basketball," she said. "What we'd
like to do is raise our women's
level up so tradition will includ6
men's and women's athletics here
at Michigan."

Lady Vols earn NCAA title

Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS - Dena Head
made two free throws to tie the
score at 60 in regulation, then hit
five more in overtime to give
Tennessee a 70-67 victory over
Virginia and the NCAA Women's
Championship.
It was the third NCAA Champi-
onship for Tennessee, which won it
in 1987 and 1989, was runner-up in
1984 and tied for third in 1988 and
1986.
Virginia led, 60-55, with 1:25 to
go in regulation when Head was
fouled by Tonya Cardoza and con-
verted a three-point play.
Tammi Reiss and Dawn Staley
both missed with :48 remaining in
regulation, but Tennessee couldn't
get the ball across midcourt against
the Virginia press and had to call
timeout, barely beating the time
clock.
With seven seconds left in regu-

lation, Staley fouled Head, who
made both free throws to tie it.
Cardoza gave Virginia a brief
lead in overtime, but Head hit two
more free throws, Peggy Evans
scored on a rebound, and Head mae
a free throw to make it 66-62.
After Cardoza's basket, Virginia
(31-3) got its only points from
Staley, a follow of her own miss
with 1:01 left and a three-pointer
with four seconds remaning.
Tennessee (30-5) trailed for 16
minutes in the first half, falling be-
hind 23-14 at the 7:44 mark after a
dazzling performance by Virginia'
Staley, Player-of-the-Year it
women's basketball.
Twice Staley, 5-foot-5, went in-
side against Daedra Charles, 6-foot-
4, and Kelli Casteel, 6-2, and came
away with points - once on a spin
move around her taller opponents
and again on a behind-the-back drib-
ble along the left baseline.

Duke tries to avoid collapse.

INDIANAPOLIS - So what
now, Duke?
With UNLV and one horrible
memory out of the way, will it be a
championship at last or a champi-
onship game disaster again?
A year ago, Duke came up flat af-
ter a tough, up-tempo, full-court
semifinal3win over Arkansas and
lost by 30 points to UNLV 48
hours later.
TheaBlue Devils (31-7) turned
the tables on the Runnin' Rebels on
Saturday night with a 79-77 victory,
but UNLV didn't give up its chance
at a repeat title and undefeated sea-
son without an intense, physical 40"
minutes.
Now the championship game op-
ponent Monday night will be
Kansas (27-7), a 79-73 winner over
North Carolina.

Can it happen again? Did the Blue
Devils just lay out too much to get a
chance at cutting down the nets?
Duke's stars, Christian Laettner
and Bobby Hurley, both played the
whole game, and Laettner was so
dehydrated afterward that he needed
an hour and 15 minutes to provide a
drug-testing urine sample.
"Yesterday was an even harder
game because Vegas was better,"
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said
Sunday. "They were just so good,
but our team is different. They're
more resilient. It has listened even
better.

ADD AN ORGAN: In the next
few years, Yost Ice Arena will have
continued renovations. Plans for a
new ice plant will be implementej
after next season. The actual ice sur-
face may be expanded length-wise,
in addition to numerous renova-
tions. One more suggestion - add
an organ. This is no insult to the
band, it only comes from one who
has played the instrument since he
was seven. Organs and hockey are a
match made in heaven; Chicago
Stadium is the prime example.
While that much could not be exs
pected from Yost, a few rhythmic
cheers that can only be accomplished
on the organ would add to the excit-
ing atmosphere that has been created
this year.
