-.Michigan Associate Director for Recreational
sports, Michael Stevenson predicts that there will be
a -cut of approximately $10,000 in this year's
recreational sports budget.
In most cases this would be bad news. But when
compared to last year's $130,000 cut, a $10,000 reduc-
tion probably doesn't look so bad to users of rec spor-
LAST YEAR'S BUDGET cut was far and away the
biggest in the Big Ten. The next biggest occurred at
1 Ohio State where there was a reduction of $65,000. Six
Big Ten schools saw their recreational sports budgets
cut last year, while two saw no change and two were
When asked why Michigan's budget cuts were so
much higher than any other conference school,
Stevenson said, "We were one of the first units in the
University to be reviewed, and the review committee
reduced us by $130,000. We had been targeted for a
$250,000 cut, but that was lowered."
As a result of the $130,000 cut, team sports with low
participation and high forfeit rates were eliminated
and replaced by tournaments for individuals. The
team sports that were eliminated included tennis,
bowling, table tennis and golf.
FURTHERMORE, SPORTS THAT had been
previously offered more than once, were only offered
once. For example, basketball used to have com-
petition for people 5-9 and under, but no longer does.
And ice hockey is now only offered once rather than
in the fall and winter.
Another change brought on by the $130,000 cut was
an increase in team entry fees from $15 to $20. "There
wasn't much complaining about the fee increase,''
said Deb Webb, Director of Intramural Sports.
"Basically, I don't think we even had a 20 percent
drop in participation which is what we'd expected.
One role that the Intramural and Recreational
Sports Department serves is that of providing the op-
portunity for individuals to engage in spontaneous
athletic activities. A number of facilities at the Cen-
tral Campus Recreation Building (CCRB), the North
Campus Recreation Building (NCRB), the In-
tramural Sports Building (Old IM) and the Sports
Coliseum are set aside for "drop-in" use. These in-
clude basketball courts, running tracks, weight
rooms and swimming pools.
FOR THOSE WHO wish to compete on a more
organized level, there are numerous intramural
leagues, with several divisions in each one, such as:
residence hall, fraternity, co-recreational,
faculty/staff, women's, graduate and independent.
The sports that have been offered in the past by the
intramural program include basketball, tough foot-
ball, track, tennis, volleyball, softball, soccer,
hockey, cross country running and skiing, swim-
ming/diving, wrestling, water polo, racquetball,
handball, paddleball, golf, table tennis, bowling,
badminton and squash.
In each sport, there are leagues for various levels
For those who want to be involved in IM sports
from a different perspective, the IM department
hires students each year to officiate these games.
Experience is not necessary for these paying
jobs-former Michigan baseball coach Moby
Benedict trains the newcomers.
For additional information on the intramural
program, call any of the following places: the CCRB
at 763-3084, the NCRB at 763-4560, the old IM at 763-
1313 and the Sports Coliseum at 763-5196.
The CCRB is located at 401 Washtenaw, the NCRB
at 2375 Hubbard, the Old Im at 606 E. Hoover and the
Sports Coliseum at Fifth Ave. and Hill.

Top scorers, goalies
return for stickers
By RON POLLACK
Question: What do you get when the top six scorers and top three goalies
return from an 11-8-1 team?
Answer: Reason for optimism and the Michigan field hockey squad.
3 THE WOLVERINES' season ended last year in heartbreaking fashion when
they lost to Western Illinois in the first round of the AIAW Midwest Regional. The
final score was 3-2, with the game winner coming in the second overtime period.
Michigan's scores came from Sara Forrestel, the team's leading point getter
on the year, and Kathy McCarthy, the Wolverines' fourth leading scorer.
Forrestel scored nine goals during the season to go with her seven assists.
Michigan's second through sixth leading scorers were Lisa Schofield (10 goals, one
assist), Heidi Ditchendorf (three goals, six assists), McCarthy (six goals, two
assists), Marty Maugh (five goals, three assists) and Denise Comby (no goals, five
assists). With all three returning, the Wolverines shouldn't be short on firepower.
MICHIGAN'S SCORING prowess could improve even more if Maugh returns
to her old scoring days. As a freshman she scored 11 goals, and as a sophomore she
tallied 17 scores before slipping to five last season.
The Wolverines goalkeeping situation
looks solid. Jonnie Lee Terry and Nan- -
cy Hirsh split time in goal last year, and
will both be back this season. Terry "
played in 12 games and turned away
87.2 percent of the shots taken against
her. Hirsh saw action in 13 contests and
stopped 85.9 percent of the shots fired *e
on goal. Sandra Smith, who played in
two games, will also return from last
On the year, Michigan outscored its
opposition, 36-26, and outshot it, 334-190.
THESE INDIVIDUALS TAKE full advantage of the Central Campus Recre-
ational Building's facilities. The CCRB is just one of many facilities on
campus which offers students the opportunity to take time off from their
studies to get in a game of basketball.

Students have 45 club
sports to choose from
By RON POLLACK
Are you interested in participating in
Well, even if you aren't talented
enough to be one of Bo Schembechler's
gridders or a member of Bill Frieder's
-cage squad, the opportunity exists in
the form of Michigan club sports.
ALTHOUGH THE CLUBS don't ac-
tually represent the school or student
body, they are permitted to use the
name "University of Michigan."
One of the differences between club
sports and varsity teams at Michigan is
money. While Schembechler, Frieder
and many other varsity coaches can of-
fer scholarships, club sports members
must pay a $2 fee to participate. The fee
was incorporated for the first time last
year due to budget cuts. The response
to the new fee was fairly good, accor-
it's been frozen. My guess is that there
will be no increase. The best is that it
would stay frozen. At worst, there
would probably be a two to three per-

In all, there are 45 clubs. A number of
sports have separate clubs for men and
women, undergraduate and graduate
students. According to Pitcher, the
Michigan club sports program com-
pares very favorably to those at other
Big Ten schools.
"THEY HAVE MORE sport clubs at
Ohio State and Minnesota," he said.
"But they have more students. I think
we have more clubs per student than
any other school in the Big Ten, and the
Big Ten is a leader in intramurals and
The sports that had clubs at Michigan
last year include aikido, bicycling,
bowling, fencing, field hockey, floor
hockey, frisbee, handball, karate,
kayaking, lacrosse, orienteeing, pad-
dleball, racquetball, rowing, rugby,
sailing, shorin ryu, skiing, soccer,
squash, synchronized swimming, tae
kwon do, tennis, volleyball, water polo
There are also clubs for folk dancing,
officials, and square dancing.
ONE NEED NOT have past ex-
perience in a sport to join a club,
although there is quite a bit of talent on
a number of clubs.
"There's no doubt that there's some
talent," said Pitcher. "Sailing and
rugby qualified for nationals. Lacrosse
also had a very good year. We have a
racquetball team that finished third at
the National Intercollegiate Racquet-
In each club, the members are
responsible for administrative duties
such as club organization, coaching,
scheduling, publicity and fund raising.
At least 50 percent of all clubs must
be made up of students. Faculty, staff
and people not affiliated with the
University are also eligible to belong in

"There were some people who said,
'you nickled and dimed us to death,' "
said Pitcher. "And some people just
didn't pay the fee. But that was very
few people. In general, most people felt
that the $2 fee was a nominal fee due to
the budget cuts."
