Drury College won the men's crown. Coach Gibson is shown in the above picture with the top awards which his lady swimmers won and with the award presented to him as the "Coach of the Year." The finish was the highest national placement ever for a Shepherd athletic team. Last year, Gibson took the Ram. swimmers all the way to third . place before returning to the national competition and scaling even higher. According to Gibson, "I knew we were capable of being higher this year. We were more competitive in every event and we entere more events. In most eases, we bettered all of personal bests for the year." Gibson took U women and one member of the men's team to Canada. Nine women posted All.American times, sophomore Duncan Morrell u,i ,, became an All-American for the second straight year. Sheperd's 1982 swimming All-Americans include Kelley Brown, Kathy Etzal, Kim Fry, Peggy Hennessey, Kim Lawrence, Lisa Mozingo, Celia Reichstein, Karen Workman, and Mary Verna. "It's really a great morale booster for the girls," Gibson continued." They worked hard all year and were dedicated to the idea that we could come in first. They knew we had a chance to do well, but didn't know how much of a chance. "We went with the idea oL winning, but we were disappointed we didn't win it all. Simon Fraser is one of the finest women's tennis teams in the country and that in- cludes NCAA Division H and HI and AIAW. Workman and Verna swam in their final competition for epherd Conege. Workman became an All- American for the fourth straight year after coming to the West Virginia college from Catsonville (Md.) Community College two years ago. The Wilde Lake High School product won the 100 Meter Backstroke and finished second in three other events. Verna, who starred in the 100 and 200 Meter Breast- strokes, concludes a strong career at Shepherd. "Mary has bettered all of her best limes this year and she still has a lot of potential that is yet to be tapped," Gibson said. Gibson was honored as the national Coach of the Year by his colleagues around the country. In six years, the 37- year-old aquatics specialist has built the Shepherd program into a national pOWer. Morrell was the only member of the men's team to make the {rip. The Wllliameburg, Va., native was an All-American as a fresh- man and improved his marks this year. He gets better and better every ' year," Gibson reflected.
