This series has the makings of a great
race - speed, reason to win and an
element of revenge.
The starters gun will sound at 7:30
p.m. in the form of Yost Ice Arena an-
nouncer, Glen Williams. But it won't be
a race on a track, but a race on ice:
Michigan v's. Notre Dame.
"WHOEVER WINS the race to the
puck is going to win the game," said
Michigan head coach John Giordano.
Notre Dame may have one of the
r quickest offenses in the league. Head
Coach Charles "Lefty"Smith indicated
that he recognized his teanus speed
especially on offense, saying that his
team has "good quickness up front."
Notre Dame's offense is loaded with
experience as well as speed. Team
scoring is lead by seniors Dave Poulin
(13 goals 17 assists - 30 points) and Bill

It will be the rookie leading the veterans this season when
the Michigan women's track team opens its indoor season at
the Michigan State Relays tomorrow in East Lansing.
Francie Kraker Goodridge begins her first season as the
head coach of a track squad which she feels could be quite
successful. "I certainly expect to be very competitive in the
Big Ten," said Goodridge. "We have some junior and senior
athletes who have been with us nearly since the beginning of
the (track) program."
AMONG THOSE upperclassmen on whom Goodridge is
counting are seniors Penny Neer, Deb Williams, Cathy Shar-
pe and Renee Turner. Neer, an outdoor All-American in the
discus, will be shot putting for the Wolverines, as will
Williams, who normally throws the javelin.
"They're both out of their element," admits Goodridge.
"Neer, though, is coming on very well."
Turner and Sharpe are both sprinters. Combined with
juniors Brenda Kazinec and Lorrie Thornton they give
Michigan a strong 880-yard relay team, one which assistant
coach James Henry believes will qualify for the March 12,
Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women's (AIAW)
national championship meet.
"I THINK IT (the 880 relay team) will qualify," said
Henry. "Overall, there is a large group of possible
qualifiers." Henry specifically mentioned Kazinec and Shar-
pe in the sprints, as well as Thornton in the long jump.
The dStance events should be another strong point for the
thinclads. As Goodridge puts it, "I feel really confident about
everything from 800 (yards) up."
Goodridge's confidence stems from the fact SueF
Lisa Larsen and Melanie Weaver run the longer dis
the Wolverines. Frederick, a junior, set a Big T
record in the 800 meters with a time of 2:08.95 last y
way to winning the conference title.
Larsen is a sophomore who recently earned A
honors as a member of the Michigan cross country
holds the Wolverine women's indoor record for th
run, and Goodridge is expecting Larsen to win a lo
for her team.
"SHE'S (LARSEN) going to surprise a lot of ot
this season," said Goodridge, herself a former dis
ner. "People don't know who she is because s
recruited for track, but she's going to help us a lot.'
Weaver, a junior, holds the Michigan wome
records in both the two and three-mile runs.
Freshmen Judy Yuhn, Teraisa Logan and Dawn
are expected to contribute.
While both coaches are optimistic over the team
in the Big Ten, they are wary of their competiti
picks Wisconsin and Michigan State as the teams
the conference. And it is Michigan State which
Michigan its first test tomorrow.
"They (the Spartans) seem to always be neck
with us, especially in the 4 by 200 relay," Hen
"That's the first running event and whoever
usually wins the meet. It might not be that way this
experience will make a big difference."
