The team had lost the first two games, and LSU needed only one more to take the match. UH battled back, and took the next three games in a string of close decisions. The LSU rivalry was put to rest with UH on top. Even though UH is graduating four seniors, LSU has the grudge match as 50-50 for the 1988 game. The reason — the seniors did not play much of the game. The depth of the volleyball team has been one of its best assets, and will continue to be a strong point. The 12 woman squad was comprised of four seniors, two juniors, four sophomores, and two freshmen. The seniors were Sherri Beyer, Gretchen Klug, Cecelia Elias, and Renee Battle. Lori Bolk and Lashelle Dobson were the juniors. The sophomores were Latisha Charles, Birgitt Haderlein, Julie Gates, and Angela Robinson. Leslie Sadleir and Norah Simpson were the freshmen. It is interesting to note that both freshmen ■'■• came from the same high school, and they are both Canadian. It is the first time since the 1970's that the volleyball team has gone to another country for its players. The Lady Coogs set 16 records on a team and individual basis. Total attacks, kills, errors, and digs all fell as the team became more aggressive. Sherri Beyer gathered an impressive array of records in the areas of kills and total attacks. Julie Gates has the UH record for highest hitting average in a SWC season, and Gretchen Klug destroyed the record for aces in a season. On her way to serving 57 aces, she also managed to set the high mark for digs, just short of 400. Records from UH were not the only awards that the players received during the season. Lori Bolk, a computer science major, was named to the GTE Southwest Athletic Conference Academic Honor Team. Team captain Bolk said, "It was good for the University of Houston because it shows that athletes can be students." Lori is not the only player who maintains excellent grades on the team. Sherri Beyer made the All- Southwest Conference Volleyball first team, and Julie Gates was named to the second team. Julie also earned SWC Player of the Week honors. The goal for the upcoming season is to make the NCAA tournament. To accomplish that feat, the Lady Cougars will have to continue the trend that they have set this year — always striving to be just a little bit better than last year. — Michael Danke Players constantly want to see "hustle." Knee pads help make the dive to floor a bit more bearable. Photo by John Schmalz. Sports 141
