Spikers
humble
Huron s
in three
straight

By KATIE BLACKWELL
The competition was closer than the score reflected in the
three-game Wolverine sweep of Eastern Michigan in
volleyball action last night.
The Michigan spikers toyed with a young Huron team in
the first game, coming out with a 15-4 victory. But Eastern
came alive in the second and third games, giving the
Wolverines quite a workout for the remaining two victories,
15-9 and 15-12, respectively.
"EASTERN is a very young team," said Michigan head
coach Sandy Vong, noting that 10 of EMU's 16 players are
freshmen. "It takes a little bit of confidence to know they can
play with us. Naturally the first game was kind of a feeling-
out process."
And that confidence came quickly.
After suffering defeat in the opening contest, the Hurons
took the court, revitalized. Westland native, Lisa Hayes,
sparked Eastern with strong serves, resulting in a quick 5-2
lead. Key spiking misses by the Wolverines aided the Huron
cause.
BUT MICHIGAN settled down. Kayrn Kunzelman's serves
and the steady blocks by seniors Alison Noble and Susan
Rogers gave the Wolverines a 10-8 lead The strong defense

put a halt to the Hurons through the rest of the game and
Michigan tallied its second victory.
And with a second, less severe defeat, came even more
coincidence for the Hurons, as Eastern came to full steam in
the third game, giving the home team an even harder time.
The Wolverines appeared to be losing strength and the
Hurons roared to an 11-4 lead. But the Noble-Rogers
blocking-and-spiking duo coupled with Kunzelman-Jeanne
Weckler serving led Michigan to an exciting 15-12 come-
from behind victory, securing the match.
VONG ATTRIBUED his team's offensive play on mental
concentration problems that, luckily, the Wolverines were
able to control enough to rescue the victory. "It's part of the
mental preparation," he said. "We try to play every ball like
the last point - it's all mental conditioning."
As Friday's Big Ten home opener approaches, this mental
preparation will become a key factor. Nationally ranked
Northwestern is coming to town.
"They're awfully tough, we'll give them our best shot."
said Vong.
The game, Friday at 7 p.m. at the CCRB will be one of
revenge for Michigan. Northwestern took all three games in
the teams' last match-up.

ATHLETES MAY HAVE FIVE-YEAR PLAN:

Board to red-

shirt freshmen?

(Continued from Page 1)
board members expressed concern about whether
the new rule actually would benefit the student.
"They'll still be out there practicing every day,"
said Norm Betts, a student representative on the
board and former Wolverine football player. "All
you're doing is taking away the game on Saturdays
from the three freshmen who would have travelled ."
"I'M NOT advocating we don't have a rule,
because it is good, but we have to make sure they.
have the study time. Those freshmen are still down
there with the varsity the same number of hours. It's
like that everywhere. I don't know how that's going to
change," Betts said.
Another question raised at the meeting was
whether the proposal would increase teams' depen-
dence on junior college transfers.
Canham said he thinks this would be the case only
at schools which already recruit such players.
Michigan teams traditionally do not recruit transfer
students.
THE BIGGEST stumbling block the proposal faces
is the economic feasibility of providing all players

with five years of financial aid, according to Canham.
In spite of the various problems with the proposal,
Michigan's faculty representative to the Big Ten said
its advantages greatly outweigh the disadvantages.
"I think it has a net academic benefit," said Paul
Gikas. "Sure it has problems. But if you pick at it, it
won't pass. There would be more of a net gain than a
net loss."
Both the University of California - Los Angeles and
the American Council for Education have made
proposals which would only restrict freshmen par-
ticipation in football and basketball.
"That wouldn't hold up in court for two minutes,"
Canham said. "A basketball player could go to court
and say that a track kid who came in with me is par-
ticipating and I'm not."
Other matters which came up at the Board
meeting included: discussion of television contracts,
the possibility of raising football ticket prices again
next year, Michigan's athletic summer camps, the
1983-84 budget and the year-end financial statement.

I SPOR TS OF THE DAIL Y:

Phullies clinch tie

CHICAGO (AP) - Ron Cey hit a two
run homer in the second inning and
Steve Prout pitched five innings of
scoreless relief to give the Chicago
Cubs a 3-0 victory that snapped
Philadelphia's 11 game winning streak
and stalled the Phillies' drive to the
National League East title.
The Phillies'went into the game
needing a victory over the Cubs and a
loss by Pittsburgh to clinch their first
championship since 1980. Their win-
ning streak was the longest in the major
leagues this season.
RICK REUSCHEL started for
Chicago but left after two innings
because of a pulled groin muscle.
Prout, 10-14, took over in the third and
allowed just three hits and struck out
three before Lee Smith came on in the
eighth and earned his league-leading
29th save.
In the second inning, Keith Moreland
led off with a single and Cey ripped a 2-2
pitch from Steve Carlton into the left-
field seats for his 24th homer of the
season.
Carlton, 15-16, had beaten the Cubs all
four times he faced them this season.
He went seven innings, yielding three
hits and one walk and striking out

seven. In the eighth, Sandburg tripled
off Willie Hernandez and scored on Bill
Buckner's single.
Mets 4, Pirates 3
PITTSBURGH (AP) - George
Foster's sacrifice fly drove in Mookie
Wilson with the winning run in the fifth
inning as the New York Mets edged the
Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 last night, clin-
ching at least a tie for Philadelphia in
the National League East race.
The Phillies can win the division flag
either by winning one of their four
remaining games or by the Pirates
losing one of their remaining five
games.
The Mets jumped into a quick 3-0 lead
against loser Jose DeLeon, 7-3, in the
first but the Pirates rallied for a 3-3 tie
with two runs in the third and one run in
the fourth.
Wilson led off the fifth with a single,
then stole second before Darryl
Strawberry drew a one-out walk. The
two then combined on a double steal,
putting runners on second- and third
before Foster lofted his sacrifice fly to
left field.
Mike Torrez, 10-17, then held on for
the victory after giving up seven hits in

the first four innings. He struck out
three and walked three in eight innings,
and Doug Sisk pitched the ninth for his
11th save.
Strawberry had an RBI single and
Brian Giles a two-out single in the first,
but Bill Madlock singled in a run and
Dave Parker added an RBI double to
make it 3-2 in the third.
Howe suspended
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Troubled
relief pitcher Steve Howe of the Los
Angeles Dodgers will not play for the
team again this season, the National
League West leaders announced last
night.
The Dodgers issued a statement
saying that they were informed that
Howe, who played collegiate baseball
at Michigan, who has undergone
rehabilitation twice in the past year for
cocaine abuse, will be unavailable to
play for the rest of the year and any
post season action that might follow.

Softball swings into post-season

By ADAM MARTIN
Yes, it's playoff time again in in-
tramural softball and all the leagues
will be immersed in the post-season ac-
tivities next week.
As the third and final week of the
regular season comes to a close,
several teams will be competing for the
top playoff spots.
SUNDAY, IN the Graduate League,
ten law students otherwise known as
The Master Batters claimed that spot
by defeating the DT's, 11 - 8. But coach
Paul Novak, is keeping things in per-
spective despite the victory. "We didn't
play nearly as well as we could have,"
asserted Novak.
"A few of our power hitters were out
of town, and most of our scoring came
on walks," Novak noted.
Nonetheless, The Master Batters ex-
pect to stroke the ball come playoff
time. "We're optimistic and we should
get more power in our next game," said
Novak.

In Residence Hall competition, North
Campus 40 squeaked by US, 3 - 2, Sun-
day. The victors had no problems with
hitting, but their seven hits did not
produce runs. Fortunately, US had

As Beta Theta Pi took care of it's
post-season slot with a close victory
over Theta Chi Sunday, coach Eric
Hansen is looking forward to his club's
next contest. "We've got a good chance
to win this thing. Our defense is solid
and that should help."
Beta Theta Pi's major nemesis is of-

prove our hitting, we need that offense
and we'll be okay."
Scheduling for playoff competition
will occur Thursday at the Intramural
