was the way Watanabe stole bases. "People love to watch her just because of the way she slides," said Browning.
It's a style Watanabe learned from her High School coach in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Browning shudders to think what might have happened had Watanabe not tried out for the team.
"She just walked on and we got lucky as hell," said the coach.
Besides Watanabe, who was named most valuable player of the team, the team consisted of six other veterans. Joann Yatogo, catcher; Mary Pietrok, third base; Kris Kam-
rath, center field; Tammy Laird, right field; Toni Williamson, left field and Karen Schoonover, pitcher.
OSU's Women's softball field, on the corner of 30th and Jefferson, was one of the newest, best fields in the city of Corvallis. No admission was charged to the women's softball games and the bleachers on each side of the fence were consistently crowded with spectators. □ by Cindy Perrizo

Under the guidance of head coach Chuck McNeil and assistant coaches Mike Chriss and Doug Hicks, the track program continued to grow and prosper.
The 1987 team's scores did not always tell the whole story for the young group, however. There was much individual growth and achievement under the competent training staff.
"They're good coaches," said junior distance runner, Karl Van Calcar. Van Calcar had been with the program for four years and commended the easy access to the coaches.
"It's more individualized
than other programs I've seen," continued Van Calcar. "If you need help and want help, it's there."
McNeil started coaching OSU track in 1964. During the period of 1976-1983 he did not coach and he felt the program went downhill dramatically during that time.
"It's coming back and we're making real progress," claimed McNeil. "We're looking forward to next year because we're not losing many to graduation and we've also had good recruiting."
With the improvement in the program during the last few years came increased spectator support from OSU
fans. During the years when the program was not doing well, the interest declined, which McNeil said was typical. "Sports fans are a fickle lot"
Practices began for track participants the day school started and continued throughout the year. Although men and women did not compete against one another in the meets, they practiced together on a regular basis.
"Everyone works well together," commented McNeil. "They work and help each other all the way." This unity added to the spirit and camaraderie of the team.
