SISTERS BATTLE INJURIES

Hickmans provi

By ANDREW J. ARVIDSON
Jenne and Jayne Hickman are two
important cogs that turn the wheels of
the Michigan women's volleyball team.
The Hickmans are warm people who
have advanced confidently in the direc-
tion of their dreams.
The dream of playing volleyball at
Michigan danced in the Hickman
sisters' minds as they were growing up
in Howell; a cozy, small town nestled in
mid-southern Michigan. Jenne' s voice
reverberates with a magical en-
thusiasm when she reflects, "My gran-
dfather and mom went to the U-M and it
was a dream come true when Jayne
and I both enrolled here."
JENNE A junior majoring in graphic
design, has been one of Michigan's star-
ting outside hitters for the past two
seasons. However, she has been rid-
dled by an onslaught of injuries during
her tenure at Michigan. This year has
not been an exception as an ankle in-
jury has hampered her play.
Nevertheless, Jenne will play in pain.
"I've been resting my ankle during
some of the non-conference matches in

an effort to be able to play in the Big
Ten battles," she said.
Jenne knows the Michigan game and
the strategies of the other conference
squads inside and out and she adds, "I
have by far the biggest mouth on the
team."
BARB CANNING, the women's
volleyball coach, said, "Jenne is
definitely a leader on the floor and she
is the fiery sparkplug that every team
needs to be successful."
Canning points out that Jayne, a
sophomore majoring in exercise
physiology, doesn't yet have the ex-
plosiveness and control of her older
sister on the hardwood, but feels she
will develop those traits in time.
"Jayne is more relaxed and
easygoing than Jenne," emphasizes
Canning, "while Jenne is as emotional
off the court as she is on it. Jenne has a
lot of energy and gives everything
during a match."
JAYNE WAS a starter at middle
blocker until she broke the little finger
on her right hand while blocking a shot
during a practice last week. "I can't

e spiker
even do pushups with the team or write
with my right hand," laments Jayne.
The break was a complicated spiral
fracture that brought with it a cast
engulfing one-half of her right arm - a
cast that will remain for four weeks and
put an end to Jayne's first season as a
Wolverine.
Last year Jayne displayed her talents
at Schoolcraft College in Livonia,
Michigan. Jenne convinced her she'
was capable of handling Michigan.
DESPITE the injury, Jayne has
retained her sense of humor and her
refreshing outlook on life. "I try to
have a positive attitude at all times,"
she said. "If I make a mistake I'll put it
behind me. And when someone else
commits an error, I'll try my best to in-
still positive feelings in that person. In
addition, if I can brighten one person's
day by making them smile, I feel life is{
worthwhile."
Surprisingly, during the Hickman
sisters' pleasant days in Howell, they
did not really compete against each
other. Instead, they helped one another
achieve team-oriented goals. Jayne
remarks, "Jenne and I have always
helped each other when the other was in
a rut. We pushed one another in order
to make the other better. We both

s' punch
played softball together in high school,
in addition to volleyball, and I wouldn't
try to hit a homerun just because Jenne
smacked a double."
Volleyball was a natural choice for
Jenne and Jayne. Both grew up wat-
ching their older sister Jerree play the
sport in high school. Jayne mentions,
"We would watch Jerree's matches and
Jenne and I would shag the errant
volleyballs and the like. We were the
typical little kids."
After working on their volleyball
skills and following in Jerree's foot-
steps the Hickmans found the sport to
be the most challenging and toughest of
all the sports they had encountered.
When one considers the many different
serves, spikes, and tips the sport offers,
this may very well be true.
The Hickmans continue to turn the
cogs of the Wolverine volleyball team
for many years to come and will
achieve many more of their dreams in
life if they conquer the complexities of
the sport. The successful attitude of the
Hickmans is made evident by Jenne.
"In order to get anything in life," she
said, "You have to believe in yourself
and those around you and to do this you
have to be confident with a positive
outlook on life."

S utcliffe C
NEW YORK (AP) - Rick Sutcliffe,
who helped turn the Chicago Cubs from
losers into winners in one season as his
own career took a dramatic turn, was
unanimously elected the National
League's 1984 Cy Young Award winner,
it was announced yesterday.
He was the first unanimous selection
since Steve Carlton of the Philadelphia
Phillies won his second Cy Young
award in 1972. Only Sandy Koufax and
Bob Gibson had been previous
unanimous selections - Koufax in 1963,

y Young
'65 and '66 and Gibson in 1968 and '70.
SUTCLIFFE, the big right-hander
from Independence, Mo., left the
Cleveland Indians on June 13 to join the
Cubs, who had finished fifth in 1983.
Sutcliffe won 14 in a row at the end of
the season for a 16-1 record, leading the
Cubs to the National League East
Division title in the best of his six major
league seasons.
The 28-year-old Sutcliffe was named
No. 1 on all 24 ballots.

U-Towers slams Jammers, 8- 6

It's been said that the best offense is a
good defense, and this could not have
been more true in Sunday's football
game between the University Towers
and the Jammers. These two indepen-
dents battled the whole game, but in the
end it was the U Towers who were vic-
torious, 8-6, by literally stealing the
game away from the Jammers. The

Just a friendly warning from Zenith Data Systems

key play of the game occured late in the
first half when Towers cornerback and
coach Wally Crosby, intercepted a pass
and ran it back forty yards to the Jam-
mer 40-yard line. On the next play
quarterback Mark Stillman threw to
Ken Williams for a touchdown. They
then added the two point conversion to
put them ahead 8-0 at the half.
Like the first half, the second half
was a defensive struggle. However,
late in the game the Jammers scored on
a pass play, but failed on their two-point
conversion. The Jammers were unable
to get the ball back and the game ended
with the Towers squeaking out the vic-
tory. With the win, the U Towers
heightened their record to 2-0, while the
Jammers fell to 1-1.
Phi Sigma Kappa 14,
Delta Chi 8
In what looked like a mismatch going into

WE WANT TO TAKE YOU

the game on Sunday between Phi Sigma
Kappa and Delta Chi, actually turned
into a close and exciting contest. Phi
Sigma Kappa won the game 14-8, and
improved its record to 2-0, but con-
sidering Delta Chi had been crushed 40-
0 in its first contest, this game was bet-
ter than expected. Phi Sigma Kappa
started the scoring off on its first
possession when quarterback Mike
Wilkinson scored on a three-yard roll
out. Delta Chi came right back,
however, as Rich Crandall caught a
Jamie Fieber 45-yard bomb. With the
successful two-point conversion, Delta
Chi was out in front by a score of 8-6.
Even though Phi Sigma Kappa had
only scored six points in its first vic-
tory, the players said they had perfor-
med better in that game. However,
they did end up playing well enough
against the Delta Chis to get the win.
When Wilkinson connected with Dan
Elkins on a short pass play they were
able to narrowly pull out the victory.
Although they ended up losing the
game, Delta Chi's coach, Rich Crandall
said that, "This game is an encouraging
one, and we are looking forward to the
rest of the season and hopefully the
playoffs."
Chi Psi 30,
Phi Kappa Psi 8
Chris Yurko passed for three touch-
downs and a trick play resulted in
another, as Chi Psi easily defeated Phi
Kappa Psi last Thursday, 30-8. Chi Psi
was in total control throughout and
scored on every possession while at the
same time stopping Phi Kappa Psi all
but once. Tom Gallagher was on the
receiving end of two of Yurko's first
half touchdown throws, as Chi Psi took
a commanding 22-0 halftime lead.
The second half began just like the
first ended as Yurko quickly hit Ed
Torrez on a 40-yard pass for a touch-
down. Phi Kappa Psi's lone score came
towards the end of the final quarter
when Chris Piersson hit Tom McMillan
on a 50-yard bomb over the middle.
However the game was already out of
reach at this point. "We had an ex-
plosive offense and a stingy defense,"
coach Chris Bigelo said. Chi Psi's

Led by quarterback Sam Desai and a
defense that did not allow a point in the
second half, Kelsey 'B' improved its
record to 1-1 with an 18-6 victory over
the Reeves Rollers last Thursday.
Desai had a hand in all three Kelsey
touchdowns as he threw for two scores
to flanker Todd Wadkins and he also
ran one in from three yards. The teams
traded touchdown passes in the first
quarter, but in the second period Desai
ran in what proved to be the win-
ning touchdown. The half ended with
Kelsey ahead 12-6.

What'sgoing on here?...
. -. icers' offense exploding
By TOM KEANEY
W HO WOULD have thought? Who would have ever dreamed that
Michigan would go from offensive ineptitude one season to goal-
scoring dominance the next?
Alright, alright, let's not get carried away so quickly. After all, the season
is only four games old, and the Wolverines (3-1) have yet to face the class of
the league (Michigan State, Bowling Green, Western Michigan), but already
it seems that this team is bound for bigger and better things than last year's
14-22-1 squad.
Consider:
*Last year Michigan averaged 3.62 goals per game. The average so far
this year is 6.5.
*In 37 games last year, the Wolverines scored more than five goals on only
five occasions. This year's team has done it in three out of it's four games.
"Center Brad Jones had eight goals last year. He already has five this
year, incluing a hat trick in Saturday's 9-2 victory over Ferris State. He
looks like a different hockey player, and remember,'he's only a sophomore.
eSenior goaltender Jon Elliot looks like a different person. In seven games
last year, Elliot's goals against average was 5.43. This year? Shades of his
freshman year -3.0.
*Despite losing top scorer Jim MCauley to graduation, Michigan has
scored 26 goals in four games. At this point last year the Wolverines were 1-3
and had been out scored 24-15.
"Junior center Tom Stiles had 12 assists last year. So far this year he has
six. He had a hand in all three of Jones' goals on Saturday.
'This year's team is not dependant on one player or even one line for
scoring. The breakdown of goals for the four offensive alignments is
6,5,8,and 5 (two goals coming from defensemen).
The question is, what is responsible for the turnaround? Many things.
There has been a certain amount of improvement on the individual level;
the Wolverines lost only three players from last year to graduation; and the
freshmen class, especially Jeff Norton, Brad McCaughey, and Joe Lock-
wood has been phenomenal.
But let's give credit where credit is due. Every player I've talked to from
last year's team points out the coaching change as the big difference bet-
ween this year and last. Every aspect of the game has been improved, from
fundamentals to strategy to attitude to confidence. Red Berenson is building
a winner in Ann Arbor.
During the week between the intrasquad game and the season opener at
Miami of Ohio, Berenson sat back in his office chair, ran off half a dozen
names, and told us they would all double their scoring output this year. I had
my doubts.
Junior defenseman Greg Hudas told me that this year's defense was going
to be offensive-minded and pass-oriented. I smiled and nodded.
"This year Coach Berenson is going to try to move the defenseman up into
the play," I was told by senior Mike Neff. "That should help our scoring
balance." Uh-huh.
Preseason optimism was running rampant on the Michigan hockey team.
It was refreshing, particularly in light of the Wolverines' recent history, but
no one really expected more than a rebuilding season. Talking about results
'off the ice and seeing them in the games are two different things.
Indeed, in the opening series at Miami, Michigan looked good but not spec-
tacular. There was marked improvement, most noticeably in the offensive
attack, but each goal had to be fought for. There were few "pretty oals" a

In the second half, Kelsey played a
ball control offense which did not allow
the Rollers to make any kind of scoring
threat. Desai said, "We played pretty
well, but we could have played better.
Our solid defensive play was the key."
Late in the second half Kelsey scored
an insurance touchdown when Desai
threw fifteen yards to a wide open
Wadkins.
