The University of Toronto hockey team skates into
Ann Arbor this weekend, but it seems as though a
messenger from Canada arrived earlier in the week
- the frigid arctic air. Regardless of the-weather on
Ohe- outside, though, the Toronto-Michigan hockey
series should ignite the Yost partisans from both
sides of the border.
Toronto, currently sporting a 12-3-2 record, com-
petes in the Ontario Universities Athletic Association
(OUAA) which also includes Windsor, the amiable
neighbor of Michigan basketball. According to Toron-
to Coach Gord Davies, the Blue' 1980-81 assets and
liabilities are opposite of the Wolverines.
"OUR STRENGTHS lie with the offense. That's
where our experience and talent are," the Toronto
coach explained. Much of the scoring prowess stems
,from the four Blues players who were members of the
Canadian hockey team at Lake Placid in 1980.
'Former Olympians center Dan D'Alise, winger
Stelio Zupanicich, and Shaw Tamiblyn comprise the

bulk of the Toronto scoring if siot also nightmares for
unsuspecting play-by-play announcers. "Stelio gets a
few laughs after public address announcements,"
admits Davies.
Unlike the Wolverines, Toronto's Achilles heel
remains with the defense. "Inexperience and youth"
are the words Davies uses to describe -his defensive
skaters, so the inconsistent Wolverine offense will
have an opportunity to boost their scoring totals.
Another hurdle for the northern neighbors will be a
few rule differences between Canadian and United
States hockey. In United States collegiate hockey, the.
center ice line is used for icing purposes but not for
two-line pass violations. In Canadian collegiate com-
petition, the red line is used for two-line pass
violations, so the Blues will have to adjust.
THE WOLVElINES need not adjust though, if the
icers continue to skate with the intensity apparent in
the North Dakota series. Michigani split with the
powerful Fighting Sioux from Grand Forks to seize a
third place slot in the WCHA. Michigan owns a 10-6

overall record including 7-5 in the WCHA, so the
Wolverines under rookie coach John Giordano have
fared better than expected. The Michigan defense,
led by goalie Paul Fricker (3.73) and leading scorer
senior defenseman Steve Richmond (nine goals, 17
assists for 26 points) will have to shut down the Blues'
offense chock full of former Canadian Olympians.
ONE GOAL GIORDANO strove for in the North
Dakota series was to lower the number of shots
rained upon Paul Fricker. The Michigan goaltender,
before the Fighting Sioux series, had been'bombar-
ded with more shots on goal than any other WCHA
goalie. During the North Dakota series, however,
Michigan allowed only 46 shots on Fricker, a vast im-.
provement.
The Wolverines will have to continue their im-
provement if they are to be triumphant against the
visiting Canadian powerhouse from Toronto. The
opening face-off will be at 7:30 p.m. tonight and
tomorrow night in the chilly confines of Yost Arena.

SEASON SET TO STAR T AFTER HOLIDA YS:

'M' tracksters in race

By JOHN FITZPATRICK
Though weakened by the loss of some
of last year's outdoor Big Ten cham-
pionship squad through graduation, the
Michigan tracksters are hoping to be in
the thick of the battle for the Big Ten
title this winter season.
Spearheading the Wolverine attack
indoors will be a fine distance running
corps, composed of the same runners
who won the Big Ten championship and
placed seventh in the NCAA meet this
past cross-country season. "Our
distance runners will be our strongest
group; you can see that from their
finish in the NCAA meet," said Coach
Jack Harvey.
Dan Heikkinen, second American in
the NCAA meet, will be leading the way
for the thinclads in the distance events,
coming off of a ninth place finish
(second American) atthe NCAA's and
a strong outdoor, season which
culminated with a strong appearance at
the- Olympic Trials with an 8:28 run in
the 3,000 meter steeplechase.
Both Heikkinen and Diemer are
capable of turning in good marks from
the mile to the three, mile, as is Dave
Lewis, who missed qualifying as an All-
american at the NCAA's by two secon-
ds.
Harvey characterizes the 880 and
1,000-yard runs as being weak ones for
the Wolverines, as these events lack the
depth that the distances enjoy. Mike
Shea, Dan Beck, and Mark Poelman
will be leading the way here.
Bolstering the sprints for the thin-
clads will be Olympian Andrew Bruce
from Trinidad, who made it to the semi-
finals in the 200-meter dash at the
Moscow Games, registering a fine 20.94
for the distance. Bruce will probably
run the 300 and 440 more than the shor-
ter dashes, as Harvey believes he's
more suited to the longer sprints,
something which a PR of 48.4 in the in-
door 440 last year seems to indicate.

Darryl Gholston, a 6.2 man in the 60-
yard dash, will also help the Michigan
cause, along with Rodney Feaster, and
possibly footballer Butch Woolfolk,
whose 20.56 at the NCAA 200-meter
dash last spring indicates great poten-
tial.
The hurdles will have two veteran

"No one out-practices us. . . not even
the men." These were the words
assistant women's track coach Mark
Timmons used to describe the
dedication and perseverance of the
women's track team.
Now in its third year of existence, the
track team placed fifth in the Big Ten
last year. Timmons feels the
Wolverines are on the verge of moving
up. "We'd like to be in the top three,
but we're probably one or two dears
away (fron a Big Ten championship),"
reported Timmons.
The women runners will make their
season debut on January 10, when they
meet Central Michigan and Michigan
State at East Lansing. Uncertain about
either of the opponents, Timmons was
still cautiously optimistic.
WITH ALMOST the entire roster
returning from last year, the thinclads
should put up quite a fight. Runners like
Melanie Weaver, a 5000-meter
specialist who placed second last year
in the Big Ten and seventh in the
nationals, and Suzanne Frederick, run-
ner-up in the Big Ten half-mile, should
aid the Michigan team in its quest. for
victory.
Timmons stressed the fact that the

track team was young, an
were building to achiev
distinction. Recruiting
strengthen the squad. J
Wolverines this year are

Carol Lam, a Hawaii state champion in
the 1500-meter, and Martha Gray, who
finished in the top ten of the state
champions of New Jersey. Always
hoping to aid the team next year, Tim-
mons said that he and head coach Ken
Simmons were already in contact with
150 high school seniors:
- -Timmons warned that the main ob-,
jective of the indoor track season was to
prepare for the spring outdoor track.
One of the most distinguished members
of the track team is Debbie Williams,
who finished ninth in the Olympic trials
in the javelin. Unfortunately for
Williams, the javelin competition is
only held during spring track. ,
WINTER TRACK is not totally void
of all track events. Last year Lori Thor-
ton and Joanna Bullard both finished
fourth in the Big Ten in the long jump
and high jump, respectively.
With Fredericks leading a group of
impressive half-milers, the two mile
relay team and the distance medley
should have a strong showing
throughout the season..
