“We have a good crop of
milers and half-milers,” Tipton
said. “(Dan) Cobine, (Tom)
Winters, (Dave) Rudishauser,
and Joe Rubrecht are all good,
strong runners.”
In the field events, Tipton
sees the Forrell brothers as the
leading participants.
“Jeff and Greg (Forrell) are
our high jumpers and they’ll
also be strong,” said Tipton.
“Not only that, they also com­
pete in other areas. Greg is a
long jumper, and Jeff is a triple

Tipton said.

community college level, the
Cougars will not be able to
compete in every event. There
are no high hurdlers on the

Michael said. “This* year she
will be playing singles as well as
doubles so she is going to have
to adjust to that.”
In high school, tennis players
are only allowed to participate
in singles or doubles, never
both. However, in college, par­

Michael will be looking to to
perform well in both the singles

“Almost all of our players will
have to make the adjustment
from doubles to singles play,”
Michael said. “I really don’t see
this as posing too much of a
problem, though.”

The only returner on the club
is Debbie Copher. Copher is
coming off a year where she
was a first and second singles
player as well as a first doubles

quite well last year.
“So far I see Debbie as our
strongest player, definitely,”
Michael said. “She had by far
the most experience on the
team and I see her imporving
quite a lot this year. Not only
did she play well for us last

said. “But from what I’ve seen
in past years in the OCCAA,
we should be competitive.”
