Mercyhurst athletes succeed academically; high grade average
Student-athlete images here at Mercyhurst are not what they appear to be. Coaches and Athletic Director |Len C y t e r s k i , revealed that athletes' grades were as good or better than a student who does not participate in sports. On Coach Bill Kaubaugh's men's basketball team, the GPA's range from a 3.47 to a low of 2.18. One of the reasons he attributes thisl academic success is to the mandatory study sessions he and Assistant Coach Bob MacKinnon have established. k Kaubaugh and MacKinnon also send out weekly progress cards on each player to each of their teachers. These cards reveal the athlete's talass attendancerecord, class participation and their GPA at that time of afspecific class. There is also a place for added commertts by the teacher. I Kaubaugh insists that, "Academics come first, they have to make the grades in order to play so they have no choice." $ £ Women's basketbaM Head Coach Darlene Rosthouser feels the same. The Lady Lakers GPA's for |first term freshmen ranged from* a high of 3.50 to a low of 1.65. | osthouser states,?#'With class loads as heavy as they are, it does put a bit more of a strain on the student athlete, but my players know that they have to get it done or they can't play." 1 | ( WAs far as Rosthouser is concerned, basketball has not interfered with classes. Academics are stressed, and grades do come first.

Coach Rosthouser feels, "It all depends on the individual and what they want." $£| .$ When it comes|to grades, the Mercyhurst football team hustles off the field as well as on. They boast a record of?36 out of 100 players with a 3.0 1 GPA or better , including six academic All-Americans. With these figures in mind, Head Coach Tony DeMeo felt very confident| saying* "My players are comparable academically to non-athletic students, they are better than average students." They (the players) have problems like everyone else, but they are dealt with immediately. "2

DeMeo (meets individually with each player'to discuss career land life goals. DeMeo feels it is important to develop the entire student-athlete, not the athlete-student. He was insistent upon *the fact that athletes fleam to set goals through sports. *Thei athlete I e a r n sS Xof d i s c i p l i n e themselves into taking care of their needs. & £ Athletic Director Len Cyterski was also very definite in his answer.

By Laura Ruby As the Laker Basketball team moved the Campus Center last week, so did the Laker Fans. The amount of spirit echoing the gymnasium was overwhelming. And it's about time! For a time, Mercyhurst seemed to be lacking! in school enthusiasm. When crowds were present at the

athletic events, they seemed somewhat catatonic. It was the same few who carried the spirit for the rest of the fans. Happyjto say, the motivation has returned. ? W i n n i n g may have something to do with it, but win or; lose, the Laker teams should always be supported. Part of the credit goes to Mercyhurst's "Crazy Dave" Armstrong. He excites the fans with his humorous floor cheers. Dave, you're greatly

appreciated! '. Credit should also be given to the recently formed group of fans who call themselves "The Bleacher Creatures." They have been at every home game cheering their hearts out for the Lakers. ^* So thanks \ goes out to "Crazy Dave", "The Bleacher Creatures" and the rest of the rowdy Laker fans. And if you're not part jot this enthusiastic group, hop on the bandwagon and join the "Lakermania." Sj

Lakers perform disappearing act
-By R.J. Zonna The Mercyhurst Lakers men's basketball team blew a 12 point halftime lead on their way to the losing end of a 73-67 decision against powerful Cheyney State last Saturday at the Campus Center. I The Lakers came out of the gates strong as they shot 59 percent from the field compared to Cheyney State's 30 percent. Sophomore sensation Todd Lee hit on 9 of 10 from the floor on his way to a 22 point? half,? while Kenny Moss, who did not miss a shot the entire game, added nine points in the first half. Ron Barnett kept the Wolves within striking distance by netting 13 first half markers.

The next local meet the Lakers swim is at Gannon, Saturday January 26 at 7 p.m. Jones would like to remind everyone that this is Mercyhurst's last local meet. | Setting records for Mercyhurst were Sean Kennedy £ (100 yard 'Butterfly and 100 yard Backstroke), Tim Karlinchak (100 yard Breaststroke), Jane Anne Mohr (100 yard Backstroke),i Mary Kaliszak (100 yard Breaststroke), Kennedy, K a r l i n c h a k , Mike Stohzenburg, and Matt White (100 yard Freestyle Relay and 400 yard Medley Relay), and K a l i s z a k , !
