Search ends for athletic facilities
By LISA NOFERI
The phone rings.
It's the freshman girl you met at that
party last night; the one you'd like not
to forget. After engaging in small talk,
she ends the conversation by inviting
you to her tennis match in one hour,
subtly indicating that her potential
availability depends on whether or not
"NO PROBLEM-I'll be there!" is
your confident response as you hang up
Problem: where does the tennis team
up the Michigan squad.
You head in the direction of an
athletic complex asking sweat-clad
students where the field hockey team
plays. After five "I don't knows," three
"what team?" and one "you mean, the
field hockey field?" you decide that
perhaps you should concentrate on your
studies this semester. -
BUT YOU don't have to fall victim to
one of these frustrating situations. You
don't have to wander aimlessly into
Crisler Arena looking for the Detroit
Pistons when they are practicing in the
All you have to do is learn where to
look. The athletic facilities are there,
and after reading the following you will
no longer have an excuse if you blow
that big date.
If you need ever ask where the foot-
ball games are played, you could har-
dly be considered a Michigan student.
Just try walking down Hoover with the
swarms of Wolverine ardents on any
home Saturday and you will be carried
to the spot that the late Bob Ufer
originally hailed as the hole that Yost
dug, Crisler paid for, Canham car-
peted, and Bo fills with 105,000 each
week. Reputed fame follows its name:
However, if you try to see the
baseball team this weekend don't be
alarmed when no fans join you at
Fisher stadium; after all, you may get
lucky and catch a hockey game at
nearby Yost Ice Arena. Proceed ap-
proximately 200 yards to your left from
WITH THE women stickers,
however, the fans are needed now as
the field hockey team is 8-2, halfway
through the season. The stickers play at
Ferry Field, just continue South, from
Yost, on State Street.
The pitter patter of fast feet inter-
spersed with the shot of a starting gun
and the pounding of tennis balls
produces the medley that is distinctly
audible as you pass the Indoor Track
and Tennis building between 3:00 and
5:00 p.m. daily. The tracksters sprint
the periphery of the five courts, famous
for the home court advantage they af-
ford the men's and women's teams.
A 100-meter dash Northwest from
Fisher will get you to this center of fast-
paced activity in time to enjoy the serve
and volley skills of the women's tennis
LA RGE PARIY?
Groups of 50 or more can
have their own area of our
restaurant or nightclub with
no charge for admission and
low prices on beverages.
If Bill Frieder's hope of a tournament
bid this year isn't enough to entice you
away from your studies on a Thursday
night or Saturday afternoon this winter
to Crisler Arena for a hard-hitting
basketball game, then perhaps you can
be interested in a leisurely game of golf
across the street. Crisler is adjacent to
Bo's battle field.
FOR THE happy medium crowd-those
who want to spectate something bet-
ween the extremes of the offensive/
definsive, headspinning rallying of
basketball and the standstill precision
of golf-position yourself at the finish
line of the cross country team, which
runs its meets on the golf course.
The aesthetically-inclined audience
will appreciate the "bodily art" of
movement exhibited by Michigan's
wrestling and gymnastics teams, which
both perform at Crisler. The beauty of
underwater movement occurs in bet-
ween the athletic ticket office and the
IM building when the swimming teams
take on all comers in the chlorinated
depths of the Matt Mann Pool.
And, the volleyball team, the varsity
women's team, makes its appearances
on the second floor of the Central Cam-
pus Recreation Building (CCRB),
located opposite Palmer Field in the
Hill area of campus.
Now equipped with this concise, but
handy, guide to the Michigan athletic
facilities the whereabouts of that tennis
player you met last night are no longer
a mystery. And who knows, perhaps
tomorrow you'll be ready when a
sophomore swimmer asks you to watch
her at the meet today.

bounced back from a disheartening, 2-1
loss to number-one ranked Iowa, and

"This is the first time ever that we've
beaten Ohio State," said Michigan
assistant coach Laura Pieri.

half, the Wolverine sticker3 took six

assisted by junior halfback Denise
The second half was a repeat of the
first, with a bit more excitement thanks
to junior link Kay McCarthy. Comby
assisted McCarthy's first goal to make
the score 2-0. And a few minutes later
McCarthy took the ball unassisted and
rifled a drive past the helpless Buckeye
goalie for a 3-0 advantage.

Michigan freshman Robert Henderson goes in for a layup last Friday at
Crisler Arena as the Wolverines officially opened practice in preparation for
the 1982-83 season. Henderson, a 6-9 forward from Lansing Eastern and last
season's Mr. Basketball in Michigan, is one of five freshman recruits that
form one of the best recruiting classes in the nation. Coach Bill Frieder and
his young team open the season at Crisler, November 22 in an exhibition con-
test against Windsor. Tickets for all Wolverine home games are on sale now
at the athletic ticket office.
so important. The team is playing
great. We are moving very well and set-
ting up tremendously. My personal
goals are really no big deal," commen-
The Wolverines' next game is this
Friday, at home, against Indiana State,
starting at 4:00 p.m. "I hear they are a
fairly good team. Their reputation is
good," said coach Candy Zientek.
With the Ohio State game history, and
a solid, 8-2 record, Zientek is pleased
with the development of her team. "The
team is performing very well. They are
playing well, and having a great time,
and that's what counts."
What could be better for the Michigan
cross country team than to have a
Wolverine take first place?
The answer is to have two Wolverines
finish in first place. That happened this
Saturday in a triangular meet at
Eastern Michigan. But having the two
leaders and fourth-place finisher was
not enough as Michigan had to settle for
second behind winner Western On-
Senior Melanie Weaver and junior
Lisa Larsen tied for first-place with a
time of 16:39 each. Placing fourth was
freshman Sue Schroeder in 17:00.
Coach Francie Kraker-Goodridge
was pleased with the Wolverines', per-
formance. "Western Ontario is a real
strong team that has performed well
against other Big Ten teams."
Goodridge said. "Our top three ran
remarkably well and are still im-
The harriers' next meet is the Big
Ten championships on November 6.
Goodridge said Michigan should be
among the top three in the conference,
with Wisconsin the favorite and Purdue
also a top contender for the Big Ten
title. "Anything can happen among the
top three," said the Wolverine coach,
who then added that the fourth and fifth
runners will 'make or break us."

Linksters lose again
The University of Michigan women's
golf team ended the fall portion of its
schedule on a dismal note. The linksters
finished 16th out of 17 teams in the Lady
Kat Invitational, held in Lexington, KY,
October 11th, 12th and 13th.
Michigan was led by senior Karyn
Colbert, who shot a 238 in her last
collegiate tournament. Ohio State won
the Lady Kat Invitational with a team
score of 921.
Michigan Coach Sue LaClaire hopes
to improve her team for the spring
season with indoor work, including
exercise programs, depending on the
facilities available to the first year
LaClaire said that the loss of Colbert
will be hard on the team's strength. She
will be depending on the team's fresh-
men, sophomore Sandy Barron and
junior Doris Gallo for a successful
