Todd tabbed captain
of next year's icers
By BILLY SAHN
Michigan hockey player Doug Todd
will have a hard act to follow next year,
both on and off the ice.
Todd; a native of Stouffville, Ontario,
was recently elected captain of the 1979-
80 Wolverine hockey team. He takes
over the reigns of leadership from
Mark Miller, who is currently playing
for the Binghamton Broom Dusters, a
farm team of the Edmonton Oilers of
TODD SCORED 12 goals this past
season and finished with 24 points.
Elected by his teammates, Todd is,
looking forward to next year.
"Miller was always hustling,"
remarked Todd. "I'm proud of the
honor, and going to do my best."
Along with announcing Todd's new
position on the team, coach Dan Farrell
also announced the appointment of Dan
Lerg and Tim Manning as alternate
captains for next season.
AS OF NOW, both Lerg's and Man-
ning's playing status is questionable for
next season because they are can-
didates for the U.S. Olympic ice hockey
team. They will be in action this sum-
mer at the National Sports Festival in
Colorado playing for the Great Lakes
Senior-to-be Lerg, despite suffering a
knee injury in October which sidelined
him for 13 games, managed toigrab 31
points in just 23 games, placing fourth
among Wolverine icers.
Manning, who will be a junior next
season, corralled 34 points this past
season for the icers as a defenseman to
tie for second among Michigan scorers.

Hard hurling keys
Blue twinbil sweep,
By LEE KATTERMAN
In spite of clear skies, the Bowling Green softball team saw nothing but
smoke during their doubleheader with Michigan yesterday.
Wolverine pitching ace Theresa Gardocki hurled a one-hit shutout, her
sixth win in as many starts, to win the opener, 7-0.
In the second game, teammate Julie Zyjewski, pitching every bit as fast
as "Smoke" Gardocki, turned in a two-hitter, winning handily, 6-1.
The Michigan batters collected seven hits off noticeably slower Falcon
pitching to capture the opener. Falcon starting pitcher Lisa Shelly gave up
three hits and seven walks in the first two innings and the Wolverines accep-
ted her generosity, scoring five runs en route to their second victory.
' Shelly, the leadoff batter in the first game, blistered a Gardocki fastball
down the trird base line for a single. But that was the only hit Gardocki
allowed the Falcons.
In fact, Gardocki didn't allow another runner until the sixth inning, when
a ground ball eluded the glove of third baseman Diane hatch for an error.
Gardocki was happy with her performance, noting that a back problem
had bothered her last week, but had cleared up.
Freshperson Zyjewski used frequent strikeouts to hold the Falcon bat-
ters in ch. ck. At least one batter fanned in each inning except the fifth.
The only real threat Bowling Green offered was in the fourth inning, as
the first batter worked Zyjewski for a walk and then stole second and third.
The Wolverine hurler struck out the next Falcon, but gave up another
walk to put runners on first and third with only one out.
Zyjewski saved her bid for a shutout, however, by collecting her sixth
and seventh strikeouts.
In the fifth inning, Zyjewski again proved to be her own worst enemy.
With one out, she picked up a hunt by Bowling Green's Karen Zook and threw
it wide of first; Zook then advanced to second. A fielder's choice put Zook on
third and in position to score on an unusual play.
A balk was called on Zyjewski for illegal presentation of the ball before
her windup, permitting Zook to score the only Falcon run of the afternoon.
Bowling Green coach Kathy Bole was impressed with the caliber of pit-
ching by Gardocki and Zyjewski.
"We knew they had one real good pitcher tin Gardocki), -said Bole."We
had hoped their second wouldn't be so fast. This is the best pitching we've
faced this season."
Michigan coach Gloria Soluk emphasized defense in her post-game
"We were weak defensively at Central (Michigan yesterday)," said
Soluk. "Defense is so important to us. We didn't have any mental errors
