With thli point In mind, I approached Lethbrldge Collegiate Institute Clipper Queens' coach, Irene Karia, hopefully to gain further insight into such a situation. You see, Karia is currently performing the dual role as coach and chairman of the upcoming Alberta high school "A" girls' basketball championships to be held at the LCI this weekend The dual role hasn't got the best of Karia as yet, but she'd be the first to admit that performing both duties can be exhausting "It's extremely hard to coach a team and act as chairman at the same time and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone I just can't see how one could possibly justify both she commented "It would be an ideal situation if I could only stick to preparing my team for the provincial finals and letting someone else handle the co- ordinating she added Coach Karia has been going AJMPY CAff WWW'S IT'S THE INVITATION TO YOUNfr EDNA'S W60DJN'' THEftLUEONEYOU UfiMLU Y WEAR AT WEDDIN'S-IT SEEMS PERFECTLY MEN!
