The Michigan Daily
atop the CCHA
By MARK BOROWSKI
Ron Mason must surely be enjoying
his team's premier season in the CCHA.
The Michigan State hockey coach has
finally cleaned out the dead weight that
has plagued the Spartans since Mason
took over the team three years ago and
has turned it into a first-place conten-
der instead of a last-place loser.
IN THE 1980-81 season Mason wit-
nessed his team struggle to a last-place
finish in the WCHA, but this season it is
all alone in the CCHA top spot after last
weekend's split with fifth-place
MSU snatched the opener from the
Falcons, 6-5, by scoring three goals in
the final four minutes of the contest in
East Lansing. But when Bowling Green
returned to its home ice, it refused to let
another early lead slip away and held
on fora 4-3 win.
Bowling Green's Brian Hills scored
three power play goals in the series, in-
cluding the winner on Saturday night.
The split left Michigan State's record at
8-3-1 and gave it a .008 percentage point
lead over second-place Northern
Michigan. Bowling Green's record
moved to 5-4-1 and knotted it in a tie
for fifth with Michigan Tech.
Michigan Tech 7-6,
Western Michigan 3-5
Michigan Tech captain Rick Boehm
earned CCHA Player-of-the-Week
honors as the Huskies swept Western
Michigan. Boehm picked up seven poin-
ts in the series, leading his team to its
first CCHA series sweep of the season.
The Broncos' Ross Fitzpatrick collec-
ted his second three-goal hat trick of the
season, and he currently leads
Western's offense with 24 points. The
senior from Penticton, British Cplum-
bia ranks second on the all-time WMU
lists in goals, assists and points and
needs only eight more points to surpass
Tim Dunlop's total of 198 and set a new
career point record.
Ferris State 3-6,
Northern Michigan 2-8
Ferris State dropped Northern from
its tie for the number one spot in the
CCHA by edging the Wildcats, 3-2, in
the series opener held in Big Rapids
Friday night. The defending CCHA
champions retaliated with a big 8-6 win,
however, the following night.
Northern Michigan freshman goalie
Bruno Campese ran his record to 7-0 to
remain unbeaten. He replaced Jeff
Poeschl in the 3-2 loss and allowed no
goals by making 17 saves in 32:40 of ac-
tion to win the second game.
CCHA overall leading scorer Eric
Ponath ran his scoring streak to 14
games. He is the only player to have at
least one point in every contest he has
performed in this season for the Wild-
Lake Superior 7-6,
Chicago Circle 4-3
In a non-league series, last-place
Lake Superior took two games from
Chicago Circle. The Lakers' Paul Gess
and Steve Sherman each scored two

Club Sports Roundup
The Michigan 'B' Squash Club travelled to Toledo.last Wednesday for a
match with the Toledo Athletic Club and came away with a 4-1 victory:
The five-man team saw four Wolverine winners, including Larry Master,
who plays B-1 (the team's first position), Jim Blick, Steve Carpman and
Kelly Newton. Hal Sprague was the only losing Wolverine,-and he "went
down in a tough match," according to Blick.
The club has had three matches this season and boasts a 3-0 record with
match scores of 4-1, 3-2, and 4-1. "We've been doing fairly well," Blick said.
The team's next competition will be tomorrow at the Metropolitan
Racquet Club in Detroit.
The 'C' team posted a 4-1 victory after it travelled from Ann Arbor for a
match against the Detroit Athletic Club last Tuesday.
The four winning Wolverines were Ed Sanchez, Mark Tucker, Siamak
Arya and Ross Campbell. The one losing match came from substitute Neil
Michigan's Ross Campbell explained that the standings are based on in-
dividual matches won, with his team's record standing at 15-5. The team's
match record stands at 3-1.
"I don't have anything negative to say, really," said Campbell. "I expect
that we'll do well this year as compared to last year."
Today at the CCRB the 'C' squad plays its first home game, as it takes on
another team from the Detroit Athletic Club.
According to club member Dara Dinner, the women's squash squad is
"not doing too well."
The women got off to a slow start this season, losing its opening match
against the Toledo Athletic Club by the score of 3-0. The team also lost its
most recent match last Thursday to the Jewish Community Center with a
final score of 3-1.
"We don't have very many matches for women," pointed out Dinner.
Another problem seems to be the lack of interest to compete among the
women. "A few women play," said Dinner, "but most aren't very com-
The women's team consists of three members and three alternates, with
one alternate being the captain of the second men's 'C' team. "We do better
in single competition than in matches," explained Dinner.
The team still has six upcoming matches to round out its season.
The Undergraduate Squash club headed by coach/player Bill Austin is in
its second year at Michigan and is trying vigorously to promote itself.
Very few schools in the midwest have undergraduate squash clubs, so the
Michigan club gets its main competition from weekend tournaments. The
last event the team participated in was a quadrangle meet with Wisconsin,
Purdue and Illinois. Michigan placed second, with Illinois taking first.
"The main goal of the team," according to Austin, "is to go to the inter-
collegiate championships." Last year the six-man club competed in the
championships, placing 26th out of 35 schools entered.
The Club Sports Roundup relates briefly the activities of the
Michigan club sports- during the previous week. This week's infor-
mation was compiled by Daily sports writer Tam Bentley.

The selection of an alternative
faculty representative was the major
bit of business accomplished at the
November' 24 meeting of Michigan's
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Board member Dr. Paul Gikas
presented a list of candidates for the
position of alternate faculty represen-
tative to the Board, which made its
choice and then submitted the name,
which 'itnrefused to disclose, to the
Senate Advisory Committee on Univer-
sity Affairs (SACUA) for approval. If
the selection is confirmed, the name of
the alternate will be made public shor-
tly thereafter. The duties of the alter-
nate representative will consist chiefly
of aiding the faculty representative in
relations with the NCAA, the Big Ten,
and other athletic organizations.
The Board also discussed
arrangements for the December 31
Bluebonnet Bowl football game, in
which Michigan plays UCLA. The
Bluebonnet Bowl is paying the athletic
department an amount between
$400,000 and $500,000 as a participant.&
The money will be used to cover the
costs of transportation for both the
football team and the Michigan Mar-
ching Band; any money that remains
from the original payment will then be
split evenly among all of the Big Ten
