Ol mpic field camp toughens u err
By LISA NOFERI
On paper, junior Jonnie Terry appears a veteran in
goal for the Wolverine field hockey team. But men-
tally, it's a new season for the dedicated athlete who
spent the summer in a regimented training program.
"I didn't work in order to train," said Terry.
HER SKILLS were polished this summer on two
levels. One is nationally, where she was invited to a
high-caliber Olympic field camp. Terry compared
the caliber of girls who were selected nation-wide to
many Michigan, Iowa, and Northwestern players.
"I was asked to play in the A-division camp, but I
pulled a muscle and was unable to go," she said. The
A camp allows standouts to travel to the Olympic
Terry honed her goalie proficiency on another
level, an individual training program. It required
daily initiative and perseverance. Her summer
discipline was apparent when she rolled her eyes
saying, "I really worked hard . . . trained heavily
with weights, was running - also with sprints, and
had someone shoot on me every day."
As a result, Terry claims, "I've acquired more
knowledge about working out and my work-outs now
are more efficient."
This season is characterized by a resolute personal
goal. "Mental toughness" is what the Dearborn
native hopes to retain through each game. Her
opinions of a top-notch goalie are not specific
guidelines because "everyone has different
strengths, different styles. While some are quicker,
others have better positioning."
TERRY HERSELF is striving to perfect the basic
abilities that have come from four years of experien-
ce. "I'm working on consistency." She clarifies,
"consistency, in addition to clearing the ball with
Her improvement in these areas is evident in her
performance this season. In Michigan's opener
against Eastern, Terry's clears were long and
strategically placed, making it difficult for Eastern's
offense to penetrate the goal. Terry also displayed
good flexibility in goal as she readily stretched her
leg far enough to deflect a wide corner shot.
Proof of this athlete's several years of motivation is
her accomplishments in hockey before coming to
Michigan. She began high-school play only as a junior
because previously she was busy goalkeeping for the
Dearborn Ice Hockey Association, the National
Champions in 1981.
TERRY'S COLLEGE choice was solely Michigan.
She is respectful of her team's unity, a facet she con-
siders very important. "Last season everyone was
pleased; we stuck together and the three we lost, we
still played as a unit."
"We were able to play tough against Old Dominion
(National Champs, 1982).
This season we have the talent to do well." An

herself. "Actually, I feel more pressure with a good

"It isn't necessary for every member
of a group to come the first night," said
Scott Page, vice president of the Coun-
cil. "Just send a representative of your
group to get a group number."
Following pre-registration, students
will have to go to the Ticket Depar-
tment the week of October 17 to pick up
tickets. "They can go at their con-
venience," said Mellin, "and pick up a
ticket from their group order."
COACH BILL Frieder hopes to see
this year's student season ticket sales
double last year's total of 1,200. "I hope
there is overwhelming support," said
Frieder. "I think part of the reason
that our team hung together and im-
proved like they did towards the end of
last season was due to the great support
we had from the student body.
"We think we're going to have a real
fine season and that the students will
enjoy our team. I'm going to be disap-
pointed if we don't have 2,500 to 3,000
students. We've had as many as 5,500
at one time in the mid-70s so it has been
done before," said Frieder.
Several Wolverine players will be at
the first night of pre-registration, which
will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Mon-
day in the Kuenzel Room at the Union.
Tuesday thru Friday sign-up will be
from 3:00 to 5:00 at the same location.
The following week pre-registration
will be held in Anderson Room D.
A student ID is all that is required.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Enos Cabell's
three-run homer capped a five-run
Detroit uprising in the first inning as
the Tigers defeated the Baltimore
Orioles 9-4 last night.
The Tigers, eliminated last Sunday
when Baltimore clinched the American
League East championship, swept the
three-game series and took the season
series from the Orioles 8-5.
LOU WHITAKER launched Detroit's
first with an infield single when pitcher
Mike Flanagan, wearing a brace
because of a leg injury, failed to reach
first in time to take a throw by second
baseman Rich Dauer.
An error by third baseman Todd Cruz
and Larry Herndon's single off
Flanagan's glove scored Whitaker, and
Lance Parrish singled to load the bases.
Flanagan, 12-4, then fielded a tapper
by John Wockenfuss and forced Parrish
at second before Cabell hit his fifth
homer to right.
MILT WILCOX, 11-10, beat the
Orioles for the third time in 14 lifetime
