Carter urges boycott;
boxers ignore request

The Michigan Daily-Thursday, Janury 24, 1980-Page 9
TAR TARS NIP MICHIGAN, 74-72

Women hoopsters dealt 12th loss

From Wire Service Reports
President Carter last night
reaffirmed support for boycott of
the 1980 Summer Olympics in
Moscow if Soviet troops are not
withdrawn from Afghanistan by
Feb. 26.
The message came during his
State of the Union address before
a national television audience.
Earlier yesterday a
congressional committee endor-
sed the president's moves to use
the Olympics as a wedge to bring
about a Soviet troop withdrawal.
But a group of.47 athletes being
polled for their decision as part of
the U.S. Olympic Committee's
study of the question appeared to
favor participation whether the
Soviets pulled the troops out or
not.
Of those reached, 20 told the AP
they would support the sending of
a U.S. team to the Moscow Olym-
pics if the Soviets did not with-
draw from Afghanistan.

THE HOUSE of Represen-
tatives Foreign Affairs Commit-
tee gave quick approval to a bill
that endorsed Carter's position
that the Olympics should be
moved, postponed or cancelled if
the Soviets are still in
Afghanistan a month from now.
Meanwhile, a 20-member U.S.
boxing team arrived in the Soviet
Union yesterday, the second U.S.
sports team to arrive this week,
despite requests by the State
Department that they stay home.
Team members told reporters
in New York City that they felt no
qualms about participating in the
14-day tour despite U.S. gover-
nment appeals for athletes to
stay home in protest over Soviet
policies in Afghanistan.
A 12-man American wrestling
team arrived in Moscow on Mon-
day. On Tuesday, they were
defeated 8-2 by a Soviet team in
Ordzhonikidze in the southern
Soviet Union.

Two dramatic basketball upsets in
one week was too much to ask. The
Michigan women's basketball team (4-
12) couldn't quite pull off a victory over
Wayne State (9-5) last night at Crisler
Arena, losing a heartbreaker, 74-72.
The afterglow of the thousands of
cheers echoed for the men cagers, who
upset second-ranked Ohio State, was
still heavy in the air. But for the crowd
of 97 last night, the women couldn't
quite find what it took, despite a super
game by sophomore Diane Dietz, who
led the Wolverines in both scoring with
30 points and in rebounding with eight.
WHAT SPELLED Michigan's
demise, though, was the loss of the
only junior starter, Abby Currier,
leaving*allrsophomores on the court.
Currier sat out 14 minutes of the first
half with three fouls and fouled out with
nearly three minutes remaining.,
Disappointed Michigan coach Gloria
Soluk was the first to admit the impact
of losing Currier. "We lost a big
rebounder and the fourth-leading scorer

in the state. Of course it hurt us," Soluk
reflected.
"A great effort by Dietz and Mc-
Namara and Tammie Sanders off the
bench just wasn't enough, though,"
Soluk continued. Sanders was the
second leading Wolverine scorer with
14 points and McNamara added 10.
MICHIGAN INDEED put up a good
fight. The biggest lead gained by either
team was six points, and the contest
was tied eight times. Michigan held a
lead with as little as two minutes left,
but six points down that stretch for
Wayne State's Monice Thomas helped
the Tartars regain the lead and pull
ahead for good.
Wayne State's big gun was junior
Stephanie Stone, who pumped in 23
points, many of them from so far out
and with such high trajectory, that she'
was virtually impossible to defense.
Thomas also added 22 points and 10
rebounds for WSU.
The Wolverines' next home game will
be next Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Crisler
against Louisville.

Omen'sh ockey:N.Y. icer leads crusade
for national recognition

By BILLY SAHN
The right wing comes flying down the
ice, nabs the pass, cocks and slaps the
puck through the goalie's legs. Boom!
It's a score.
The icer is surrounded by teammates
as she's congratulated for perfect
execution of the shot. That's right,
SHE.
Sue Hardesty, legislative director for
Congressman Lester L. Wolff (D-N.Y.),
has a rather unusual hobby. She ice
skates, but not on figure skates, on
*ockey skates. She is one of a growing
Fmumber of women athletes, playing
what is hnsidered a "man's sport#"
Ice hockey is a tough and sometimes
brutal sport, especially at the
professional level. For Hardesty and
the many women with the same in-
terest, hockey is likewise a tough game.
"We have full-body checking," Har-
Lerg honored'

desty remarked. "However, no
checking from behind is allowed," she
added.
But according to the female icer, the
game is not as brutal as it was with the
men. Instead, the women place a lot of
emphasis on finesse.
"I've seen a couple instances of fights
on women's teams," said Hardesty,
"but, it's not really that brutal. It can
look more dramatic than it is. As a mat-
ter of fact, I've gotten hurt more
playing half a dozen softball games,"
she concluded.
Hardesty plays wing for the Bud-
weiser Redcoats, an amateur team
sponsored by Anheuser-Busch
breweries. The Redcoats are members
of a recently formed Mid Atlantic
Women's Ice Hockey League, which is
composed of nine teams between
Washington, D.C. and New York.
"The league we organized our-
selves," Hardesty commented. "We're
basically club teams, registered with
the Amateur Hockey Association," she
added.
- Hardesty's teammates come from a
wide variety of positions. Several are
government workers, some are in
private business, one is a housewife and
a couple are of the "factory worker
types." Yet the age range is surprising,
from 14 to 38. According to Hardesty,
most of her teammates are in their 20's.

Even this age is old for the sport.
''We're kind of an 'old ladies' team
compared to the other teams," she
said.
Nevertheless, as is the case for many
amateur athletes, money-finan-
cing-is a constant problem.
"Budweiser paid for about half the
cost of our ice time last year," Har-
desty said. But, ice time is terribly ex-
pensive, about $75 per hour. "All the
other costs," she continued, "were
covered by us."
Despite the expense, the Georgetown
graduate is serious about her play and
her team,
"My goal as a player is to continue to
improve," Hardesty said. "I'm not
particularly athletic, and I'm not the
superstar either," added the foreign af-
fairs legislative specialist.
"As a team, I would like to see us go
to the national tournament," Hardesty
continued. "Last year, we came very
close. We made the playoffs, but lost a
3-3 tie with 12 seconds left. I think this
year we have a good shot," she sur-
mised.
A native of Wisconsin, Hardesty dab-
bled in figure skating, but was nevfr at-
tuned to ice hockey. But the turning
point in her career came one day when
she was skating on the Mall in the
nation's capital. A woman approached
her and asked her to come try out for
the team.

Hardesty is aware that people need to
become accustomed to the idea of
women playing hockey. Some women,
"male chauvenist women," as she ter-
ms it, think that it is terrible that a
woman be so infeminine.
On the other hand, men at first reac-
ted in a typical "MCP way," according
to Hardesty. "But, a lot of men respect
the fact that I've gone out there and
done it," she said.
In general, people react with total
disbelief, says Hardesty, when she tells
them of her hobby. In the meantime,
the Redcoats and their league are
gaining more and more respect while
they get more and more of the public's
attention. Since their conception, the
Redcoats have been the subject of a
CBS national news report as well as
several locaj television stations and
newspapers.
Hardesty views the press and air
time as useful: "It gets people ac-
customed to the idea that women do
play ice hockey," she said, "and it at-
tracts more women to the sport."
Nevertheless, Hardesty admits that
many people still view it as a freakish,
crazy thing for women to do. She looks
forward to the time that people will look
at women's ice hockey as common-
place.
