The toughest meet of the season proved to be the Ohio Northern Invitational. Ohio, fired-up and ready for revenge, squeezed in a two point victory. Undaunted, TSU went on to capture their fourth straight Mid-Central Con¬ ference Championship title and qualify, for the second year in a row, for the NCAA Division III National Championships, held in Cleveland.

The rel¬ atively young team pulled together, under the leadership of senior Kevin Heffernan, to put down a strong Huntington team for the first time in four years. The winning goal came in the last 30 seconds of the best and most exciting game of the season. In other thrillers, the Trojans saw their closest game ever against Spring Arbor, the Michigan State Champions. They held Grace, who became National Christian Conference Champions, to a 0-1 score. They also missed qualify¬ ing for Nationals by one game themselves. Heffernan proved to be one of the most outstanding athletes, as he was named an Indiana All-Star and TSU’s Most Valuable Player.

The Tro¬ jans finished the regular season with an 11-2 record. In confer¬ ence play, the team finished with a record of 5-1, only losing to Grace by a 6-3 score. In the M.C.C. tournament, 3 Trojans were placed in the top 2 seeds. Anthony Bal, Jim Wiseman, and Bruce Hackney were all runners- up in singles play. In doubles, Wiseman and Kevin Geron along with Hackney and Bal were run¬ ners-up. The team finished sec¬ ond overall in the Mid-Central Conference. For the first time ever, the Tri-State netters entered the District 21 NAIA Tournament. The team did very well and finished the tournament with a respectable third place. A lot of the teams scoring came from the fine performance of Anthony Bal and Bruce Hackney in doubles. Bal and Hackney became the first Tri-State players to ever be named to the NAIA All-District Tennis Team. I - 32 MEET TSU OPP Bethel 8 1 Jackson Comm.

If it were not for all of the people that backed me last year at this time, I would not have the privi¬ lege of writing these lines. It has been a much tougher job than I ever imagined, but it has been well worth my time to work for the students of Tri-State Univer¬ sity. The fun times I have had working and meeting with the stu¬ dents of Tri-State by far surpass the hard times that go with this book. A very special thanks goes to Mr. Dick Kennard of Newsfoto Year¬ books, the publisher of this years Modulus, for all of his help and time. We would also like to thank Delma Studios for being the offi¬ cial photographer for the seniors, their fine job has been greatly appreciated. And last but not least, I would like to thank Dr. Gerald Seeley for being my advisor this past year. Without him to guide us in our times of despair, I feel things might have gone down the tube. Dr. Seeley has been a very impor¬ tant part of this staff to me all year. Thank you once again. After many hours of work and the fun times that go with it, I would like to say good-bye to Tri-State University and I hope you enjoy the Modulus we have created for you Sincerely yours, ' DcuxeP QJb n tbocX David Alan Dock Editor-in-Chief 1977 Modulus L — ✓ vA V
