A school full of guys with thick
glasses and slide rules attached to their
belts doesn't strike terror into the hear-
ts of many.
But head coach Red Berenson and the
Michigan hockey team have good
reason to be fearful as they travel to
Troy, New York to take on the Ren-
sselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)
tonight and tomorrow night. The
Engineers (yes, Engineers) have
racked up some mighty impressive
RPI IS ranked fifth in the country,
with a 15-2 record. It is working on a
school-record 12 wins in a row including
last weekend's massacre when it beat
Cornell, 6-2, and Colate, 6-0. Against
Colgate the Engineers outshot their op-
"We have been winning, but there
were areas of concern on the team,"
said RPI head coach Mike Addesa, ob-
viously a guy who could find something
wrong with anything. "We're coming
off a weekend where we were finally
able to put together two good games in
Twelve wins in a row, and they
"finally" put together two good games
last weekend? That's scary.
"WE KNOW it's going to be tough
going in there," said Berenson.
"They're a great team, and I think it
will be a good test for us.
"We've met some tests this
year-coming back against the
Russians, bouncing back to beat

One problem for Berenson and Co.,
however, is the players who have been
laid-up recently. Joe Lockwood injured

THE WOLVERINES have also had a
bout with the flu-defensemen Bill
Brauer and Greg Hudas and forward
Brad McCaughey have all been afflic-
Don't count Michigan out of these
contests, however. Now that Tom Stiles
is finding the net (10 goals, eight assists
in the past 18 games) and Paul
Kobylarz is playing the best hockey of
his college career, the Wolverines have
become a formidable offensive force.
Furthermore, RPI is not invincible.
One of their two losses this year was to
a virtual unknown, Union College.
THESE engineering students,
however, are among the elite in
Returning All-American Adam Oates
(17-31-48) and John Carter (22-15-37)
lead an RPI offense that averages 6.61
goals per game. Michigan averages
4.16. Oates and Carter are joined by
left-wing George Servinis on a power
play line with 33 percent proficiency.
"We're not a team of one or two
guys," said Addesa. "It's pretty much
21 blue-collar workers."
SUFFICE IT to say that this could be
the biggest test of the year for the
Wolverine defense. Such a test couldn't
come at a worse time.
In Michigan's last four CCHA games
its goals-against average is a pathetic
8.25. You don't win hockey games like
that, particularly against one of the
best teams in the country.
"We've been sporadic," said Beren-
son, singling out goaltending as a
recent problem. "Our goals against has
not been what it should be." Goalies

This series at RPI as well as the
earlier trip to New Hampshire, though
meaningless in the conference stan-

secret that the Wolverines haven't been
on an east coast road trip since 1976 (at
RPI). These series are key in recruiting
for and evaluating a rebuilding
"We don't want our program to be
considered a little team out in the Mid-
west," said Berenson, suggesting that
these trips give the program
credibility. "We are not a team that is
"We also want to play these games
for our own scope, so that we know
where we are compared to other teams.
These are the kinds of programs that
we can learn from."
Learning experience-maybe a
euphemism for getting beaten?

The Track and Tennis Building will
be ablaze with action this weekend, as
both the men and women indoor track
teams begin their season by hosting the
annual Michigan Relays.
But track fans should not count on the
Wolverine men to be the ones burning
up the track.
"IF WE CAN win two or three events,
we'll be doing well," said men's head
coach Jack Harvey. "We have possible
wins in maybe the high hurdles, the 600
(yard run), and possibly one of the
distance races. We expect stiff com-
petition from Eastern Michigan and
Eastern and MSU are just two of the
area's colleges and track clubs that will
give the. Michigan men a hard time.
About 10 to 12 other teams from
Michigan and Ohio will also compete
Harvey, whose indoor team finished
second in the Big Ten last year, said
graduation and injuries have diluted
this year's talent.
"WE'VE LOST five Big Ten cham-
pions and another runner-up," he said.
"We've lost six quality people, and that
can really hurt."
The Wolverines will especially miss
distance runner Ron Simpson and long
jumper Vince Bean. Simpson, the only
All-American on the men's team, is out
with an achilles tendon injury, and
Bean, Michigan's best leaper, has used
up his indoor track eligibility.
Most of Michigan's hopes tomorrow
will ride with Thomas Wilcher in the
high hurdles and Todd Steverson in the
middle distance events. Scott Crawford
should also be a factor in the high jump
and long jump.
THE MICHIGAN women, who will
face pretty much the same schools and
clubs as the men, should fare a little
better than their male counterparts in
their meet this evening.
Even though they finished 6th in the
conference in 1984, the women won six
events in last year's Michigan Relays
and are returning most of their
athletes. Head coach James Henry said
his team should place in the top three in
the majority of events.
Top Wolverine women include sprin-
ter Joyce Wilson, distance runner Sue
Schroeder, and high jumpers Angie
Hafner and Dawn McGinnis.
Henry emphasized, however, that he
is not very concerned about winning
today since this is only the first meet of
the year. He said he will spread the
team out, placing runners in other than
their usual events, to see how the in-
dividual women do in different events.
Women's competition will begin with
the field events at 6:00 tonight. Running
events will start at 6:30 and last until
The men will kick into action at 1:00
p.m. tomorrow with the Invitation
three-mile. The race, which will feature
Olympic bronze medalist and ex-
Wolverine Brian Diemer, will be
followed by the preliminary running
events, open one-mile and open two-
mile runs and the triple jump. Field
events and final running heats will start
at 6:00 p.m.
