Track coach commends Olympics
By DAVID BARBER
Two years ago, NT track coach John
McKenzie believed the U.S. boycott of
the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow
was a mistake.
Today, his feeling on the subject has
“In my opinion, it was a great tragedy
that our American athletes did not get
the opportunity to participate in
Moscow,” McKenzie said. "You can't
establish foreign policy through Olym-
McKenzie said the boycott was not
successful. “The boycott changed
nothing politically, because the Russians
are still in Afghanistan. It did no! work,
because only a few other countries
stayed away. I believe the Russians
could have cared less whether we had
showed up or not.”
Since 1978, McKenzie has served as
chairman of the United States’ men’s
I 500-meter Olympic Development Com-
mittee. He holds camps twice every year
for U.S. 1500-meter hopefuls and their
“In these camps, the runners go
through psychological and physiological
testing," he said. “We also discuss train-
ing techniques and strategy."
McKenzie joined several other
coaches in January 1981 in writing a
coaching manual for junior high and
high school track
and field pro-

Kenzie is optim-
istic about this
for a gold medal in
the I 500-meter
"The early fa-
vorites for the gold medal in the 1500-
meters would have to be Steve Ovett and
Sebastian Coe of Great Britain,”
McKenzie said. “They will be tough to
beat, but I feel very confident about our
chances for a bronze or silver medal.
Sidney Maree and Steve Scott arc our
best hopes for medals. Tom Byers will
be a dark horse for the team."
McKenzie believes there are not many
differences in techniques used in traning
1500-meter runners from country to
“The training is pretty common
between countries,” he said. “There are
differences among the individuals. For
instance, there may be a Steve Ovett
system for training, a Sebastian Coe
system and so on."
McKenzie graduated in 1959 from
Lincoln High School in Portland, Ore.,
where he participated in football,
basketball, track and cross- country.
He received his bachelor’s degree in
1964 and his master's degree in 1966
from TCU, w here he enrolled on a track
scholarship and participated in cross-
Before coming to N'F, McKenzie
coached cross-country and track at
Richardson's Pierce High School from
1968 to 1971.
McKenzie applied for the NT head
track coach position in 1970, but the
school hired Carl Babcock instead of
“Later on, Coach Babcock asked me
to join him at NT as an assistant coach
and I accepted,” McKenzie said.
McKenzie was named head track
coach in June 1973, when Babcock was
killed in an automobile accident.
"The program here at NT is very in-
dividualized,” McKenzie said. “We
evaluate and coordinate each runner’s
program and study the effects of the ex-
ercises. Flexibility exercises are impor-
tant in our program.”
McKenzie said he has been fortunate
to coach many top athletes at NT over
the years. "Rudy Lcvarity has been the
best male sprinter I have ever coached
here. Ben Motouri (cross-country run-
ner), Donna Thomas (long jump
national champion) Leana Hocking
(distance runner) and Lourel Jones (high
hurdler) have been excellent to work
with." he said.
NT opens its outdoor season Feb. 27
at UT-Austin in a quadrangular meet.
"As long as I can make enough money
to eat, I will stay in coaching. I guess I
am one of the few people in this country

Women's golf season opens
The NT women’s golf team opens its spring
season today in the first round of the Houston
Baptist University Invitational. The two-day
event is played at the Champions’ Country Club,
w hich is considered one of the top courses in the
Coach Debbie Norton said the squad will be
hurt with the absence of its number one player,
Lesley Copeman. Copeman returned to her home
in South Africa in mid-January for personal
reasons, Norton said.
Norton said she thinks the squad will overcome
the loss of Copeman. “We have some really good
players, and everybody has been working hard, so
I think we can still be good even without Lesley."
Norton said that in addition to the players who
returned from the fall season, the squad has a
new player for the spring. Gayia Gill transfered to
NT this spring from Wichita State University,
where she was the No. I player.
"With the addition of Gayia and the players we
have returning, I think this could be the best team
we have ever had at NT,” Norton said.
Norton said the team’s top four for the
Houston Baptist tournament is composed of Gill,
Christina Teno, Ingrid Norval and Maria
Norton said Teno had the lowest round in
qualifying last week but that Gill and Whalen
have been the most consistent players this spring
in practice rounds.
