Cagers set scrimmage
to boost ticket sales

Third-ranked ODU faces

By JIM DWORMAN
In an effort to boost sagging
student ticket sales, Michigan
basketball coach Bill Frieder an-
nounced Tuesday that his team will
play an intrasquad scrimmage open
free-of-charge to University studen-
ts.
The scrimmage will be played
Sunday, November 7 at 6:30 p.m. in
Crisler Arena. Students presenting a
valid ID card at the arena's north
tunnel entrance will be admitted to
the game. Seating will be on a first-
come, first-serve basis.
"WE'RE TRYING to do something
special for the students," said
Frieder. "I think we're going to have
a real fine, exciting team and we'd
like to get them involved."
So far, students have been
anything but involved. Season ticket
-sales to students are down by a
rMichgian Ticket Department
estimate of 40 percent.
"We've sold about twelve hundred

tickets," said Al Renfrew, head of
the ticket department. "Normally,
we sell around 2,000 student tickets.
We still could get up around there in
the next couple of weeks." He added
that in the past, students have pur-
chased as many as 5,000 season
tickets for basketball.
RENFREW offered the depressed
economy as one possible explanation
for the invisible lines at the ticket
windows, noting that student season
tickets for Michigan's hockey team
also are down.
On the other hand, he added,
economics is a reason why students
should buy season tickets. "You get
in for $2.50 instead of $5.00," said
Renfrew. "I would think that would
be an incentive to buy."
After next Sunday's intrasquad
game, students will have two days in
which to -purchase season tickets.
Frieder hopes the Wolverines' per-
formance in the scrimmage will
spur student interest in Michigan
basketball.

Watch out. The Old Dominion Monar-
ch field hockey team is in town, and
it is hot.
As a team, Old Dominion has
everything: young talent led by ex-
perienced veterans, consistency, poise,
impressive statistics and a top coach.
But most importantly, the team knows
how to win games.
While playing a very tough schedule,
the Monarchs have two very im-
pressive victories on their 9-1 record.
An easy win over Massachusetts, 5-1,
then ranked number six in the country.
And a 1-0 victory over number two
ranked Connecticut just last week.
The only blemish on their 1982 season
is a 2-1 loss to fifth-ranked Temple.
Thus, Old Dominion has had the benefit
of playing a rigorous schedule, and the
skill to be highly successful. Currently,
the Monarchs are ranked third in the
nation.
A trademark of most good teams is a
quality coach, and Old Dominion has
one of the best in third-year coach Beth
Anders. Anders was a member of the
1980 U.S. Olympic team, and the cap-
tain of the 1982 National team. It is most

likely that Anders will also perform on
the 1984 Olympic team.
AS FOR coaching, last season Old
Dominion finished 13-2-2. And in each of
her three years, the Monarchs have
been in the top twenty.
Similar to most field hockey coaches,
Anders keeps quiet about her individual
game plans, but is proud of, and has
confidence in her players. "I want the
girls to be their own players out on the
field," said Anders.
In fact, once her players take the
field, Anders has had very little to
worry about.
OLD DOMINION is led by a fresh-
man sensation from Overveen, Holland
named Eveline LePoole. From her
midfield position, LePoole has scored
13 goals and registered four assists.
LePoole came to Old Dominion by way
of the under-21 Dutch national team,
which is considered one of the top
teams in the world.
"That freshman they have from the
Netherlands scares me," said Michigan
assistant coach Laura Pieri. "She has a
drive that is mean."
The team leader in goals is
sophomore forward Christy Morgan,
who has 15 goals and one assist. Last

year Morgan was named to the NCAA
all-tournament team.
"I SAW Christy play in high school,
and she wasn't that super. She must
have improved a lot at (summer)
camp. Now she is playing great field
hockey," commented Michigan
Freshman wing Tracy Gaskins.
The other big scorer for Old
Dominion is senior midfielder Yogi
Hightower. Co-captain Hightower leads
the team in assists with nine while
scoring five goals. Last season
Hightower was named all-American,
and along with Morgan, was named to
the NCAA all-tournament team.
Old Dominion has been impenetrable
on defense, to the credit of the backs
and the sweeper. Through their first
five games, the Monarchs had allowed

stickers
only one goal, and through all ten
games have outscored their opponents
44-6.,
OLD'DOMINION meets the Wolverines
tonight at 7:00 in the Michigan
Fieldhouse. Michigan is 10-2 and
ranked 21st in the nation.
Michigan head coach Candy Zientek
is confident: "The girls are doing what
they are supposed to. We have been a
good team all year and have been
playing well. We can beat Old
Dominion."

We have a class-attendance policy."

geason.

academic reasons, and flankers Thad

rhe entire season.
GRIDDE PICKS
! People from dorms are basically im-
tent in the Griddes competition-
nd perhaps other things as well. Those
n Alice Lloyd and East Quad will only
bick teams that have vegetarian diets
"nd group rap sessions. These teams
fire always incredibly wimpy-after
411, you can't expect a team which eats
tttuce and alfalfa sprouts to beat any
team that eats beef.
All this aside, people from these two
dorms also fail in Griddes because they
re often so out of touch with reality
t*at they send in their grocery receipts
instead of their Griddes. Beat the dor-
tmees by bringing your picks to the
laily by midnight Friday. Include
irme, address, and phone number so
te can reach you if you win the small
que-item Pizza Bob's pizza.
