Hartman In The Game

Special to the Jewish News


ak Park native Mike Hartman
is still lacing up his skates at
age 37. The former NHL
player has settled in Charlotte,
N.C., where he played his last full sea-
son of North American hockey in 1997-
98, with the Charlotte Checkers of the
East Coast Hockey League.
Hartman played European hockey in
Cologne in 1997-98, but later returned
to Charlotte. In the past few years, he's
occasionally re-joined the Checkers
when they needed help at forward.
Hartman played in 16 games in 2000-
01 and four in 2002-03. This year, he's
appeared in 25 games and scored four
goals and three assists.
Hartman played 397 NHL games
from 1986 through 1995, with Buffalo,
Winnipeg, Tampa Bay and the New
York Rangers, with whom he won the
Stanley Cup in 1994. He scored 163
goals among his 309 points but was
mainly known as a tough, physical play-
er who amassed 2,818 penalty minutes.
The Wayne State University women's
hockey team posted the first winning sea-
son in its five-year
history, finishing
the regular season
15-14-4. Senior
forward Kim
Spaulding, a
Harrison graduate,
was third in team
scoring with nine
goals and nine
assists for 18 points Spaulding
in 33 games.
The 5-foot-3
Spaulding, an assistant captain, hasn't
missed a game during her four-year
career. She had six goals and seven
assists as a freshman, eight assists in her
sophomore year and five goals among
10 points last season. Naomi
Kupferstein, a sophomore forward
from Thornhill, Ontario, has one goal
and two assists this year after netting
three goals in 19 games last season.
Both Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook-
Kingswood hockey teams enjoyed strong
state tournament runs. On the girl's side,
netminder Hilary Schreiber made 21
saves as Cranbrook blanked Port Huron
5-0 in the state quarterfinal. In the semis,
Sabrina Musts had two goals and two
assists and AJ Roberts a goal and an assist

in a 10-2 thrashing of Novi. But the girls
lost the championship game to Grosse
Pointe South, 3-1.
Elliot Vilders' second-period goal
helped the Cranbrook boys team win its
Division 3 regional, 3-1 over Orchard
Lake St.. Mary's. Vilders scored a goal in
Cranbrook's 5-3 semifinal win over
Dearborn Divine Child, and had an
assist, along with Matt Robins, in the
Cranes' 5-2 state championship victory
over Gaylord.
Madness began
with a bang for
Seaholm junior
Jake Billmeyer.
In Seaholrn's
Class A district
opener last week,
against city rival
Groves, Billmeyer
sank a three-
point shot from
the corner in the final seconds of regula-
tion to force overtime. The Maples even-
tually prevailed, 69-65, in double-over-
time. Billmeyer finished with 16 points.
Seaholm upset West Bloomfield in the
district semifinal, with Billmeyer scoring
16. But North Farmington beat
Seaholm in the district final, 65-44.
Billmeyer had seven for Seaholm and
Greg Shummer scored three for North
The Jewish Academy of Metropolitan
Detroit won its first-round Class D dis-
trict basketball game, 63-26 over
Warren Immaculate Conception. The
Jaguars then gave the state's ninth-
ranked Class D team, Zoe Christian, a
good battle before losing a 47-38 dis-
trict semifinal. Bradley Garden and
Levi Stewart led JAMD with 13 points
apiece against 19-1 Zoe Christian. The
Jaguars finished 7-15.
Scott Thompson led Birmingham
Groves to the Division 2 state swim
championship on Saturday with state-
best times in the 200 individual medley
(1:52.00) and the 500 free (4:33.95 in
the prelims, 4:35.47 in the finals). The
Birmingham senior also swam on
Groves' second place 200 medley relay
and eighth place 400 free relay.
Freshman Roman Sandler swam on
Groves' 200 medley and 400 free relays,
finished fifth in the individual medley
(1:59.93) and seventh in the 100
breaststroke (1:01.72).
Franklin native Eliot Weiner is start-

ing his junior season as an attackman
for the Colorado College lacrosse team.
Weiner, the team captain, was fourth in
scoring with 11 goals and two assists
for 13 points in the team's nine games
last season. The Division III school
begins its regular season this month.
The young West Bloomfield wrestling
team exceeded expectations this season,
due in part to senior Evan Schwartz.
Wrestling in the 112-pound class, the
second-year varsity performer had the
Lakers' second-best record, 29-9, enter-
ing the individual district tournament.
A Schwartz victory helped West
Bloomfield win its team district and
reach the regional finals. Individually,
Schwartz won the Waterford Mott and
Milford tournaments.
Other West Bloomfield wrestlers
included 152-pound junior Alex
Braun, who spent most of the season
on junior varsity but also saw some var-
sity action. Mike Pultusker, a 189-
pound-senior, was injured early in sea-
son and saw limited action on both
varsity and j v Freshmen Isaac Adler
(103 pounds), Hunter McWilliams
(112) and Jeremy Zickerman (215) all
wrestled on the JV team. ❑
