Schofield displays her
emotions on hockey field
By PAUL HELGREN
Michigan field hockey player Lisa
Schofield tends to be a little emotional
on the playing field, but she knows how
to channel her emotions constructively.
The sophomore sticker can still
remember a time when this wasn't the
"It was back in fourth grade,"
:Schofield recalled. "I finally scored my
first goal and it was called back. I was
so mad I threw a temper tantrum and
ggot ejected. It was pretty funny,
IRONICALLY, it is emotion that
:makes Schofield such an effective per-
"I'm still emotional," the 5-6 forward
said. "If I'm upset with how I'm
.playing I get angry. But that just makes
-me work harder. The madder I get the
harder I work."
Indeed, hard work has been paying
off for Schofield. She led the team last
year in scoring with 10 goals and has
already scored nine times this year in
just seven games. But Schofield doesn't
see her role as being limited to scoring.
"IPM A SCORER," the Philadelphia
native said, "but I think of my role as
moving the ball upfield and forcing the
other team to foul so we can set up and
score. Most goals come off set-ups."
Not only has Schofield been a prolific
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - The
Indiana Pacers announced the signing
of first-round draft pick Clark Kellogg
yesterday and his new coach said he
didn't expect the rookie to become an
instant National Basketball Association
"Don't expect 25 points and 15
rebounds a game from this guy," said
Indiana Coach Jack McKinney at a
(,news conference announcing the
- signing. "He is not the salvation. If you
take, a look at past drafts you will find
that not many rookies have big first
-v KELLOGG, a 6-foot-7 power forward,
,isigned a four-year contract. Terms of
the agreement were not announced.
"Ever since I declared hardship I
have been looking forward to this day,"
said Kellogg, who averaged 14.9 points
a game in three seasons at Ohio State.
The rookie, who is being reunited with
former Buckeye teammate Herb
Williams, reached a contract
agreement earlier this week after going
through a summer of deadlocked
negotiations. He missed the start of
*,,,%training camp last !Friday but joined
-the squad after reaching a verbal
"So far things are going real well. I
feel very comfortable fitting into the
half court offense," Kellogg said.
The signing of Kellogg, who was the
eighth overall selection in this year's
college draft, has allowed McKinney to
shift Williams from forward to center.

It's time for Part Two of "How to
Beat Men in Griddes." When in doubt,
women, always pick the team with the
prettier uniforms. This doesn't hold
true for major powers, most of whom
have uniforms which are uglier than
the blind date who took you to Charlie's
For example, Boilermaker Pete and
MSU's Sparty are the most hyper-ugly
mascots anywhere, so bet against
them. The USC Trojans have this cool-
looking guy dressed as a Trojan and
riding a white horse, so bet for them.
If you scout the color coordination
better than those silly men, who pick
teams on the basis of ability, you'll get
a small one-item multicolored pizza
from Pizza Bob's. Have your picks here
at the Daily by midnight tonight and in-
clude name, address, phone number,
and score of the Michigan game.

scorer but she has also produced in the
clutch. She scored two goals late in the
second half to secure a 2-1 victory over
Michigan State earlier this year. And
.in this year's opener against St. Louis, a
game she called her "most exciting
ever," Schofield took control of the ball
at midfield and moved in for the win-
ning score with just 20 seconds
to score 10 goals in the last nine games
of the year. She discovered herself to be
a "forward at heart" and established
some lofty goals for herself.
"I STARTED this year looking to
score 20 goals," she said. "But now I
just want to lead the team in scoring.
I'd like to break the Michigan career
scoring record too. It's a lot of goals
(67) but it's something to strive for."
'We don't get any
respect from the
students or the
other athletes, for
ter . . . We have to
team," Jones explained. "She gives
this team a spark. She's explosive."
AND IF the high-scoring Schofield
means a lot to her team, the reverse is
also true. Despite calling lacrosse her
favorite sport (she hopes to start a
women's club here someday), she
thrives on field hockey and resents the
fact that most students are apathetic
toward her sport.
"Yeah, it really bothers me that no
one knows about (field hockey)," she
said. "I was at this party and this male
athlete was there and everybody was
impressed. And they say to me, 'You
play what? Field hockey? Oh. ..'
"Hey, we're equal,we're athletes too.
We work hard, practice everyday. We
don't get any respect from the students
or the other athletes, for that matter,"
Schofield continued. "We have to
change that by doing things like win-
ning the Big Ten or going to the
"Maybe it's because they don't play
much field hockey in the midwest like
they do in the east. In the east it's like,
'You play field hockey? Really, that's
great.' They know."
For now, though, Schofield is content
to play field hockey with or without
recognition. Content, but not calm,
which is good news for the stickers' title
hopes this year.
...hard work pays off
Despite her scoring prowess, it was
only mid-season last year that Schofield
found a home at the forward position.
She had been playing link when coach
Candy Zientek moved her to forward. It
was her first time ever at that position,
but she adapted quickly. After a short
adjustment period, Scholfield went on
Schofield is also optimistic about the
team this year, citing skill level and
confidence as the reasons behind
Michigan's excellent early season start
(6-1). Teammate Dee Jones, though,
sees another reason for the good start-
