Transcript V Athletics Hard work pays off, and it certainly did in 1997. As the University of Houston Cougars entered a new conference, they found new challenges which they met head on. Teams worked together, cooperating and sometimes compromising, until it all came into play on the big game day. From the incredible Homecoming game to the unstoppable Lady Cougar teams, the University of Houston became familiar with a title that had been elusive for some time — winners. With team victory also came individual satisfaction. One could not be a part of the UH sports program without some sort of pride in the work and team spirit found there. Not only did students work towards team victory but individual victory as well. From golf to baseball to football, victories were won on the field and within as well. Occasionally, the Cougar team faltered and fell to another team; but not for long. With that added a bit of character to each player's personal stamina the team came together one more time, got up from the ground, dusted off, and roared to proud victory. The tail-gate parties at Robertson Stadium, supporters making the bus trip to Memphis, the fans packing seats at home basketball games - this was the character of the Cougar spirit. It was unbeatable. It was contagious. And in 1997, it was a formidable opponent. Then, there were threats of budget cuts. Then, Cougar spirit was more of a laughing matter. That was then. This is now.
