1973 was a big year for other reasons.
It was in 1973 that Rubright competed in
tryouts for USA's Women's National Volley­
ball team; was a member of USA Junior
National Team Roster and was also a All-
Star Region II USVBA Volleyball player
while serving as player-coach of the Spokane
Volleyball team under Bill Neville, currently
the Canadian Men's National Coach.
In 1974, Rubright received her Master of
Arts in Education, from the University of
Idaho, with an emphasis in physical educa­
tion and administration.

have a real good chance to have a winning
season," said Clackamas Community Col­

that has already marked her young life.

Oregon College of Education for the past
three years, replaces Connie Wilson, who re­
signed to devote more time to her business.
