Transcript Left, All-American golfer Hal Underwood blasts out of a sand trap onto the green. Underwood's fine play in the AAII netted him the individual championship. Below, Dick Woodall lets go with a long bomb against Michigan State. Right, Elvin Hayes' free throw knocks unbeaten UCLA from their number one ranking in the Dome. Above, Don Bean shifts into high gear on a 77-yard TD pass from Woodall. Right, Houston's number one pitcher, Wayne Hill, uncorks one against Sam Houston. 162 of Sight; That's UH Cougar Athletics When asked what made the Cougars come on so strong in all phases of athletics, Director Harry Fouke replied, "Our coaches and athletes want to get to the top and stay there." The 1966-67 athletic year set a high standard with golf, baseball, basketball and cross country teams all finishing in the nation's top ten. Football hopes for the 1967-68 year were given a big boost when the Coogs rolled over Michigan State's Spartans. But the good feeling of being in the top ten slowly faded as the Cougars slipped into the top 20. At the same time the cross country team was on its way to an eleventh place finish in the NCAA. Houston's basketball fortunes were better as the roundball five finished number one in the polls, even after being shocked by UCLA in their second meeting of the season (UH won the first, 71-69 in the Dome). The golf team returned two Ail- Americans and the baseball team one. The number one golfers were defeated just twice, while the baseballers finished under .500 by one game. With all sports at UH becoming stronger, Houston's Cougars were recognized as one of the up and coming overall national powers. But the hardest game is still to be won; the test is to stay near the top of the heap on a consistent year in, year out basis. 163
