The Michigan Doily
Blue icers overwhelm Miami (0.),
W Bv BA BARBBARKER
uy u t nr
The Michigan icers managed to put
together a productive power play last
night at Yost Ice Arena to thrash the
Miami (Ohio) Redskins, 7-3, and com-
plete the weekend series sweep.
The Wolverines scored the first four
of their seven goals in one-man advan-
DESPITE THE unusually high power
play production, Michigan coach John
Giordano had mixed feelings on its ef-
"Parts of the power play I was
satisfied with," he said. "I was really
happy with it when (Ted) Speers and
(Jeff) Grade were out there. We played
good at times and bad at times."
Michigan wasted no time opening up
the scoring as Speers collected his 20th
goal of the season at the 1:59 mark of
the first period. The goal came a little
over a minute after Redskin Andrew
McMillan was sent to the penalty box
for tripping. Speers took a Brad Tippett
pass; skated it around the backside of
the net, and backhanded the puck into
the right corner of the net.
The Redskins were quick to retaliate,
notching their first tally on a power
play at 4:34. Miami's leading scorer
Steve Morris tipped in a Kevin Beaton
shot from the point to tie the game, 1-1.
THE WOLVERINES snapped the
deadlock less than five minutes later
when sophomore right winger Jim Mc-
Cauley slapped one home at the 8:53
mark. Defenseman Steve Richmond
skated the prick up the left wing and
dropped it back to McCauley, who rif-
fled it past a miffed Redskin goalie
Michigan dominated the second
period notching three unanswered
goals to widen the scoring gap, 5-1.
Defenseman Dave Richter began the
scoring drive at 6:49, capitalizing on
Ten minutes later, freshman center
Grade chalked-up his fifth goal of the
season. The Warren native took a
Speers pass, and skated it straight into

Wolverine Kathy Beckwith won the 1982 women's Big Ten
vault title and freshman Christy Schwartz was runner-up on
the uneven parallel bars yesterday in the individual com-
petition at the Big Ten Championships at Crisler Arena.
Friday night, in the team phase, Michigan captured the con-
ference championship with a sterling 140.95 performance.
Beckwith, who also finished in a third place tie on the
balance beam with all-around champion Robin Huebner of
Minnesota, was named to the all-conference team on the
vault and as an all-arounder. Schwartz was named one of two
all-Big Ten athletes on the bars.
"IT FEELS super," said Schwartz after posting back-to-
back 8.95s this weekend in nailing down the runner-up spot on
the bars. "I went in rated third, so I expected to get at least
that. I'm excited that I did better-it's great."
Wolverine freshman Dayna Samuelson was -also suc-
cessful, as the 5-0 all-arounder earned a third place tie in
vaulting with an 8.9 in yesterday's competition. Sophomore
Nancy Papows finished sixth on the uneven bars with an 8.75
and junior Angela Deaver tallied an 8.65 on the balance beam
to place in a sixth place tie.
The top eight Big Ten gymnasts in each event from Friday
night's team competition qualified to perform in the in-
dividuals. Yesterday's scores were added to Friday's totals
to determine the individual placing.
Minnesota finished fourth in the team competition, but
more than made up for it as three of its athletes took in-
dividual titles. Sophomore Judi Klein won the bars with an
8.95 yesterday and an 18.05 total. Kari Ploof took the balance
beam with a 9.05 (18.25 total), and Huebner won the floor
exercise with a 9.1 and an 18.25 combined. Beckwith's two-
day total on the vault was an 18.05 (9.0 yesterday).
Few men traeksters compete .

Special to the Daily
YPSILANTI - Four weeks ago, the
Michigan track team ventured to
Bowen Field House, and less than half
the squad chose to compete.
Last night could almost have been
considered a repeat, except even fewer
Wolverines decided to participate.
WITH A MID-week dual meet last
Tuesday, in which the Wolverines
defeated Michigan State, and the Cen-
tral Collegiate Championships (which
Michigan won last year) coming this
weekend, most of the Michigan troops
looked upon yesterday as a day of rest.
Besides the more consistent of
Michigan's point producers abstaining
from the meet, another noteworthy
Wolverine who took the day off was
coach Jack Harvey.
"It's mostly people who don't get to
run normally," said George Yoanides,
describing the approximately 15
harriers who were present.
YOANIDES RAN in the 600-yard run
with a time of 1:14.
One event in which Michigan's finest
did perform was the pole-vault. Both
Dan Chevillet and Dave Woolley com-
peted for the top honors.
Woolley came away with second
place, jumping 16'4". Chevillet
managed only, a fourth place spot at
Nat Durham, an Eastern Michigan
graduate, set a new field house record
clearing the bar at 17'191:
The major reason for the lack of par-
ticipants at the meet was due to the
condition of the track, which is asphalt,
an unfavorable surface for runners.
As one runner from the X, niversity of
Toledo put it, '"It's like running on a
parking lot with lanes painted on it.

The Michigan women's track team
took six first-place finishes in yester-
day's Wolverine Invitational held in the
Track and Tennis building and coach
Francie Goodridge was not surprised.
"I can't say I'm surprised because I
know how good these people are and
they've continued to improve steadily
throughout the season," said the
WINNERS FOR the Wolverines in-
cluded Joanna Bullard - whose 5'10"
high jump set a new school record
eclipsing her own previus record by two
inches - and Penny Neer who out-
classed the field in the shotput event
with a throw of 45'0", another Michigan
Other winners for the squad were Sue
Frederick in the 1,000-yard run, Lorrie
Thornton in the long jump, and the
relay teams at distances of 880 yards
and 2 miles. Goodridge was clearly im-
pressed with Frederick's ability to
come up with a fine time against a field
she outran by eight secnds. "I thought
she didn't have anyone to push her
when we saw the scratches," said
Goodridge. "But she was able to hold
her race and get a-great time all by her-
The highlight of the tneet was the two-
mile run, as the top six finishers, in-
cluding Michigan's Melanie Weaver
and Lisa Larsen, topped the old
fieldhouse record of 10:43.6. The race
was won by Michigan State's Ann Pewe
with a fine time of 10:03.2. Weaver, who
finished second, (six seconds behind the
winner) complimented Pewe on her per-
formance saying that "If I would have
been able to relax I might have caught
