The 1980-81 edition of the Texas
A&M women’s basketball team is
going to be young and inexperi
enced, but second-year coach Cherri
Rapp says all 13 women on the roster
can play.
“We may make some mistakes be
cause of our youth,” Rapp said, “but
we won’t hurt ourself with who ever
we have in there.”
“We will be real inexperienced, so
right now its hard to say what the
team is gonna look like,” she said.
“Hopefully we can find five who can
play together. Right now it’s up in
the air, but there are a lot of pos
sibilities,” Rapp said.
One player Rapp expects a lot out
of is senior Trigg Crawford. “Trigg
should be one of the leaders,” Rapp
said about the College Station pro
duct. “She looks real good in practice
so far.”
Rapp added that Sherry Winn, a
transfer from the University of Hous
ton, and Kelley Sullivan have also
looked good in practice.
One of the biggest suprises for
Rapp this season, has been the de
velopment of the two walk-ons,
duRae Gill and Leanne Brown.
According to Rapp, Gill is one of
the most intelligent players as far as
her on the court sense. And Brown
has improved 300 percent since she
has been here, Rapp said.
The Aggies will have their first real
test this weekend when they host
Tyler Jr. College in a full scrimmage
Saturday afternoon at 2:30.
Rapp says the Aggies offensive
game plan will consist of fast break
ing as much as possible, and having a
lot of movement so the defense will
have to keep up with us.
On defense, Rapp plans to run a
Ag fencing team in Dallas
The Texas A&M fencing club,
which took several members to the
national championships in New York
last spring, will participate in the
Dallas Open this weekend.
The meet starts Saturday and runs
through Sunday, and is considered
by many to be the most prestigious

tight man-to-man defense and press
most of the game.
Due to A&M’s extreme lack of
height (only Cathy Foreman stands
taller than six foot), Rapp and her
assistant coach, Cindy Gough, have
been spending a great deal of time in
practice blocking out on rebounds.
“It will be one of the biggest keys
of the year,” said Rapp, “if we don’t
block out, our opponents will kill us
on the boards.”
But even with all the questions
that need to be answered before the
season gets underway, Rapp is real
optimistic. “We should improve
each game and hopefully reach our
peak when the playoffs roll around, ”
she said. “But right now, we have
got a long way to go.”
