MEN ' S GOLF Danny Mason resigns as golf co ach Richard Whittenburg, the head pro at the Hillcrest Country Club for three years, became the new golf coach at the start of the season. Whittenburg re- placed Danny Mason, who announced his resignation in January. He assumed leadership of a team that had performed dismally in 1978 and finished last at the Southwest Con- ference Tournament. Relatively unsuccessful early in the season, the Raiders came back at the SWC Tournament and surprised every- one with a seventh-place finish. Their overall score of 915 was only two shots back of Southern Methodist University. Mel Callander, a senior three-year letterman from San Marcos, and Chris Brown, a junior college transfer from Midland, led the team with 54-hole to- tals of 228 for 12th place finishes. Also competing on the varsity squad were junior Randy Waterhouse (229), senior Gregg Jones (230), freshman Larry Se- ligman (242) and sophomore Mark Jar- rett (243). The squad is looking ahead to the 1980 season since it graduated only three of 10 varsity players. K 1.

WOMEN ' S SPORT TALK Women ' s athletics experience growth With the completion of this season, the women ' s athletic program complet- ed its fifth year of existence at Tech. What was once a frail, under-nourished little sister of the established men ' s ath- letic department is now a vital part of the Tech athletic community, partici- pating at the highest level of intercolle- giate competition. Since 1972 and the implementation of Title IX, universities nationwide have tried to capture the women ' s inter- collegiate pot-of-gold. The investment was small, competition sparse and the rewards in recognition and prestige, priceless. Far-sighted administrators saw athletics, men ' s and now women ' s, as a way to promote their universities. Tech joined the race late in women ' s athletics. The women rounded out their third year of membership in the Associ- ation for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) with the end of this season. However, in typical Red Raider fash- ion, the women have made their mark, fielding teams in basketball, volleyball, tennis, swimming, track and field, cross country and golf. More than 107 co-eds now compete in the seven sports of- fered. Tech ' s women ' s athletic budget has nearly doubled in the past two years, and almost half the athletes benefit from the growing scholarship program. This year for the first time, the women ' s athletic department offered full schol- arships to a few talented individuals. There was at least one full scholarship winner in each of the seven sports. More full scholarships are expected to be awarded as Tech tries to attract top high school athletes, not only from Tex- as but also nationwide. Last fall, the volleyball team packed the Women ' s Gym with fans who were converted to the exciting play of power volleyball. The Raider spikers (cont.) 1.
