High hopes for '83
By PAULA SCHIPPER
The Michigan field hockey team may finally stick it to the
competition this year.
Still riding high from its best season ever, 13 - 3 in 1982, the
team looks even better this season. The women stickers have
a stronger offense, impressive recruits and an enthusiastic
new assistant coach.
MICHIGAN'S success last year rested on its outstanding
defense with much of the credit belonging to goalie Jonnie
Terry who made 110 saves in 14 appearances. She attributes
Michigan's victories to the team effort.
"The mental attitude is everything," said Terry. "We're a
close team...everyone has to work together."
But it will take a push in the offensive direction this year to
get over the competition. Fans should keep an eye on Kay
McCarthy who led the team with 21 goals and eight assists
last season. Right behind her was Lisa Schofield who finished
with eight goals and three assists.
SCHOFIELD the added advantages of competing in a U.S.
Olympic Development Camp this past summer. Placed in
the highest division, Schofield's experience against the best
stickers in the country is bound to pay off.
The new Michigan offensive edge, however, may be dulled
by a string of injuries. Last year's co-captain, Heidi Ditch-
endorf, injured her knee early last
season and it is still uncertain whether
she will return for the 1983 season,
while senior Denise Comby, a
stronghold on the defense is out of the
line-up with a hamstring injury.
The team also almost lost another
player last week when sophomore
Bridget Sickon was hit in the head with
a .goalie's stick while rushing. Though
she suffered a concussion, Sickon says
she feels fine and hopes coach Candy
Zientek will play her in today's match
against Eastern Michigan.
AS LONG AS Michigan stays clear of
any further injuries, Zientek will not
worry. "We do have the depth to
replace the injured players and we Te
have competent replacements," she ... returni
Zientek is also optimistic about the freshmen recruits and
the team pas caught the enthusiasm.
The freshmen know their hockey; they work hard." com-
mented Sickon. "Joan Taylor (Furnace, Pennsylvania) and
Jane Nixon (Ann Arbor) have excellent chances of starting.
JONNIE TERRY hasn't ignored the freshmen, either.
"They are doing a good job but just need some experien-
ce...I wouldn't overlook anybody this season."
No Michigan sticker will overlook new assistant coach
Karen Collins either. Collins, a high school coach from Con-
necticut, has already made a difference on the squad accor-
ding to Sickson.
"She (Collins) knows what she is talking about," said
Sickon. "Especially about defense."
Michigan will need the added expertise because its 1983
schedule is a tough one that includes games against Iowa and
Northwestern, ranked fourth and seventh in the nation
"WE'RE GETTING there, but this year will be more com-
petitive," said Zientek. "We're playing everyone twice."
But the stickers have faced off against even better teams in
the past. Last season's national cham-
pions, Old Dominion, were almost for-
ced into overtime. Only in the last thirty
seconds did the Wolverines let one slide
by to lose 1-0.
Don't underestimate the stickers,
who are currently ranked 20th in the
country. Zientek's squad will start its
season today against Eastern Michigan
in Ypsilanti at 4 p.m., but may finish
the 1983 season at the NCAA champion-
The Wolverines will open their home
season Friday, Sept. 23, at 4 p.m.
against perrenial field hockey
powerhouse, Northwestern. This game
,rY also marks the opening of Michigan's
ni Big Ten season.

coach Sue LeClair was pleased with her squads' third place
finish in the Lady Wolverine Invitational golf tournament,
held at the University of Michgian golf course this past

finished 61 strokes off the pace behind Michigan State and
runner-up Indiana. The Spartans pulled away from the rest
of the field on Sunday, beating the Hoosiers by 11 shots.
Michigan State also had the medalist for the tournament,
Barb Mucha, who fired impressive scores of 77-77-77 for a
three day total of 231.
Michigan was led by freshman Val Madill who posted a 253
for the 54 hole tournament. She was followed by team-
mates Bridget Syron, 257; Sandy Barron, 259; Missy Bauer,
260 and Jan Idomir, 279.
Besides the Wolverine's Blue squad, made up of the
regular starting six, Michigan also had a Maize squad en-
tered in the tournament which placed eighth in the eight
team field behind Bowling Green, Northern Illinois, Purdue,
and Ferris State. The Maize team was paced by freshman
Lisa Dimatteo's 267.
The Lady Wolverines Invitational also served as the
qualifying for Michigan's next tournament which will be held.

pair on road

The Michigan women's volleyball
team found out that it's hard to win
on the road as it suffered two defeats
this weekend, losing to Big Ten
rivals Ohio State and Indiana.
In the team's conference opener
on Friday night in Columbus,
Michigan was unable to fight
through the Buckeyes' solid defense,
losing the match 5-15, 10-15, 15-9, 9-
15. Without the services of senior.
Jeanne Weckler, the Wolverines' of-
fense was missing its all-important
HEAD COACH Sandy Vong had
hoped Weckler would be ready to
play despite an ankle injury she suf-
fered on September 8 in a match
against Georgia. Sophomore Karyn
Kunzelman performed well in
replacing the injured setter, but
Weckler's absense was definitely
noticeable on the court, particularly
against a high-powered team like
Admitted Michigan's assistant
coach Barb Canning, "Ohio State
looked awfully strong and played an
extremely good defense."
Despite a less than overwhelming
hitting game, senior Alison Noble
looked impressive in what Vong
called "one of her smartest offen-
sive games." She racked up 17 kills
for a .281 attack percentage.
luck hadn't changed by Saturday
when the team suffered another set-
back, this time to Indiana 11-15, 5-15,
15-9, 10-15. The two losses left the
Wolverines with a 0-2 record in the
Big Ten and an-8-2 mark over-all.
The team was hoping to get off to a
good start, and victories over Ohio
State and Indiana would have meant
just that. Vong admitted that he was
disappointed, but also pointed out
that his team is feeling the effects of
some key injuries.
"I'm not looking for an alibi," said
Vong, "but we're playing hurt." He
mentioned injuries to Noble and
Jennifer Hickman, along with
Weckler's sore ankle.
"We're licking our wounds now,
but we'll be back," he said.
The team travels to Bowling
Green today, then on to Illinois and
Purdue for the weekend conference

teams faced Scioto Valley while mem-

"The club sports are starting to
form," said Mary Fran Grossman,
assistant director of recreational spor-
ts. "All those who are interested in

Since the clubs are still in the process
of forming, the opportunity for student
participation is ripe. "A lot of the clubs
have good participation," said
