There'll be a collective search for
consistency this weekend at the Cen-
tral Campus Recreation Building.
.No, Leonard Nimoy won't be
leading the quest, but the women's
volleyball team will be, as rookie
coach Barb Canning's club hosts In-
diana (4-7) tonight and Ohio State (5-
5) tomorrow night in two matches
that promise to be tests of consisten-
cy for all teams involved.
DESPITE handily disposing of
Bowling Green last Tuesday night,
the Wolverines succumbed to their
first Big Ten opponent - Purdue -
last Saturday and would like to avoid
a repeat of that party.
"It's going to be tougher on us this
weekend," said Canning. "Indiana
and Ohio State aren't going to let us
get away with certain things, but
we'll be happy with a split."
Canning stressed that her club
lacks, consistency early in the
season, so there'll be more than just
a win on the agenda.
AND THAT seems to be the
general attitude in Bloomington and
Hoosier head coach Doug West
will be looking for several things
when he arrives in Ann Arbor. "Con-
sistency is the key," said West, "we
want to get better with each match.
We've got a lot of young kids, so we
need to gain some maturity."
Those younguns mciune tresnman
twin sisters Karen and Patty
Dunham, two of the four freshmen

"OUR PLAYERS have played a
lot of high-level volleyball," West
added, "but we have to be consistent
playing together and working as a
unit. And Michigan is always
Jim Stone, head, coach at Ohio
State, echoed West's sentiments.
"We haven't been the most con-
sistent team of late," he said. "At
times, we've played well, at times
we've struggled, but we've got to
concentrate on our side of the net
and iron things out."
One of these teams, Michigan in-
cluded, is bound to find what it's
looking for this weekend.

When you meet new head field hockey
coach Karen Collins for the first time, a
sense of confidence and control
emanates from her presence. These
qualities make it evident that Don
Canham made the right choice in hiring
Collins was "thrilled" when she was
named the new coach, but she hopes
that a bigger accomplishment lies
ahead. She said that "seeing this team
become a Big Ten power" would be the
biggest thrill of all. Her team could take
a step in the right direction by winning
their two games this weekend with
Kent State and Michigan State.
Collins brings a great deal of ex-
perience to the program. She played
college field hockey for Southern Con-
necticut State College and club hockey
for the Northeast Regional field hockey
AFTER A one-year stint as
Michigan's assistant coach, she was
named head coach last March
replacing Candy Zientek, who resigned
in order to pursue coaching and a
degree program in England.
While in college, Collins acquired the
nickname K.C. "There were
seven Karens on my college team," she
explained, "so we all had to go by our

ONE OF the first problems Collins
faced when she took over the reigns of
the program was that many of
Michigan's players were plagued with
injuries. To combat this, she
established a weight conditioning
"In the past, the girls did what they
had to in order to get by," said Collins
of their training program. Now, though,
you won't hear many complaints about
conditioning. "The better teams are
more physical," observed goalie Jonn-
ie Terry. "The weight training will help
us to be a more physical team."
Another problem was the team's
basic field hockey skills. Early prac-
tices and new drills helped to remedy
this; and to further aid the program,
Collins pushed for an east coach road
