Page 18 The Tftunderfiinf Monday, October 3, 1983 SUSCs Green may win This spring Anita Green intends to try out for the softball squad at Southern Utah State College. Thats not really news, except, if she makes the team and letters, it may be her 11th athletic letter award as a Thunderbird athlete. Green, a fireball senior, has earned three letters in volleyball (shes currently working on her fourth), three letters in basketball (she will probably earn a fourth this year), and two letters in track. A softball letter would leave gymnastics as the only sport Green did not conqufer at SUSC.

Along with these activities, mens, womens and coed golf will be offered, said Tom Kingsford, director of intramurals. Also in line as part of regular activities is the annual coed Mud Bowl, scheduled for Homecoming Week. Kingsford said an intramural day of activities is included on this years calendar for Nov. 21. The days activities will bear the name Turkey Trot, he said. Intramurals are not just for physical education majors, Kingsford said. "Theyre for the total student body and are part of what student activitiy fees pay for. SUSC intramurals are run for and by the students. The emphasis on Thunderbird intramurals is not skill, but to be involved, have fun and to meet people, Kingsford said. New students are welcome to the program, and will be placed on a team immediately, he said. SUSC intramurals has a team emphasis, Kingsford said. Top teams can win awards, including and baseball caps. Students can also earn money officiating, he said. P.E. 290, a class for physical education majors, allows each student the opportunity to direct intramural activities, Kingsford said. Jim Cannon and Mary Ann Brown currently direct mens and womens intramurals, respecti ely. Kingsford said he feels more students are getting involved in intramurals each year.

The very toughest thing for me to do 11 letters is sit the bench, Anita said. Ill do anything to get out on the floor. I have to be in on the action. I have learned to realize, however, that theres always someone better than you. Green played for the 1981 Lady Bird squad that placed fourth in the national championships, and also placed third in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference 800 meter championships last fall. Both events were great thrills, she said. She goes after academics in the same manner she attacks athletics. That is, she goes all out.
