Transcript 1962 Larry Lindsey dodges a Florida State defender to get to the ball. Interestingly enough, UH won this game -- one of five wins in the season. Believe it or not. 1973 A Cougar player swings at the ball in a game against Iowa State. This year's "new addition" to the team was a group of attractive bat girls, known as the "Dugout Darlins". Hmm. I9co Heeeeeeres Shasta! The original school mascot poses with a friend for a picture. Back when the University actually had a living, breathing mascot, there were eight people entrusted with her care. Sports e past The University of Houston has one of the proudest sports traditions of any school in the United States. No, really. Our school supported a variety of individual sports stars, as well as some great teams over the last seventy-five years, and despite somewhat dismal performances by the Cougars in recent years, the long-standing tradition of athletic excellence gives our atheletes something to strive for. Beyond doubt, the heyday of the UH Athletics program was during the 1980s. During this decade, many UH athletes who would eventually become superstars contributed stellar performances to the University. In the first half of the decade, a young man by the name of Carl Lewis took UH's track and field team to new heights with his oustanding atheletic ability. He went on to compete in four Summer Olympics winning numerous medals. Around the same time, UH basketball players like Clyde "The Glyde" Drexler and Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon were crushing all the competition in sight during the days of "Phi Slamma Jamma." After several strong finishes in the NCAA Basketball Championships, these two went on to play in the NBA, and are ranked amongst the fifty greatest players in the history of the league. There once was a time when our football team was a dominating presense in the Southwestern Athletic Conference, too. Running a "Run and Shoot" offense that was nearly impossible to stop, UH was a perennial hopeful for a berth in a college bowl game. In 1989, Andre Ware, the quarterback who orchestrated the Run and Shoot, was awarded the Heisman Trophy and flaunted as one of the best quarterbacks in the nation. In the early days of the 21st century, enthusiasm in UH Athletics has somewhat dimmed, but there were still many talented athletes fighting for Cougar pride and striving for excellence. Matthew E.
